Evangelion Cosplay Perfectly Brings Eva Unit-01 To Life


Neon Genesis Evangelion ended its current film series, Rebuild of Evangelion, earlier this year with the mouthful of a movie, Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0: Thrice Upon A Time, which gave the series a decidedly different ending than the one that many anime fans had witnessed in the television series created by Hideaki Anno. With the film still having plenty of mech and angel action throughout, one cosplayer has perfectly captured the look of the mech suit piloted by Shinji Ikari, Eva Unit 01, which continues to perhaps be the most recognizable part of the series to date.

Shinji Ikari definitely doesn’t hold much in common with many other anime protagonists out there, normally struggling with his own doubt and hatred of the world, and himself, before deciding to jump into his mech suit and battle against the extraterrestrial threats known as the angels. Eventually, Shinji is able to pilot his mech suit though still struggles with both the internal and external threats to his being throughout the franchise. Currently, there are no plans for any new future anime series or feature-length films for the world of NERV, though Anno has stated in the past that there certainly are stories that are left to be told in the world that introduced us to one of the most beloved anime franchises of all time.

Twitter Cosplayer Sunny Maolo shared photos and videos of this amazing Cosplay, proving that with some ingenuity and hard work, characters from the world of anime can be brought into the real world, with Eva Unit 01 of Neon Genesis Evangelion fame being no exception:

While the future of Evangelion is up in the air, creator Hideaki Anno is still planning some big projects for the future. Having previously worked on the live-action film known as Shin Godzilla, Anno is looking to expand this universe with two new films set to arrive in the future via Shin Ultraman and Shin Kamen Rider. While Anno hasn’t confirmed if we’ll ever see a Shin Evangelion, it’s clear that the anime creator is far from finished when it comes to the world of entertainment.
