Celebrate the "Year of the Pen Pen" with New "Evangelion" Goods

Gainax’s EVANGELION STORE TOKYO-01 is ringing in the Year of the Rooster in their own special way. While they may not have an actual rooster in the series, they do have a bird of their own… sort of. Welcome to — according to Gainax — the Year of the Pen Pen.



Brand new art featuring Pen Pen and a kimono-clad Rei Ayanami will grace a variety of merchandise available during the store’s “Year of the Rooster” event. Customers can get a clear file, a NERV branded beer glass, and a ball point pen… yes, a “Pen Pen pen.”





In addition, customers who spend at least 1,000 yen will receive the commemorative postcard shown above. Supplies are limited, and will not be reprinted once they’re gone.
