You know how you make Evangelion wine, right? You harvest the grapes, crush them to a pulp, let the juice ferment, and bottle it. And then you remain emotionally distant to it for 14 years.
The online shop ANIMATE is taking orders for limited-edition Neon Genesis Evangelion-inspired sparkling wines, to be sold in mid-June. The wines come in three flavors, with each flavor featuring either Unit 01, Asuka Langley, or Rei Ayanami. Only 333 bottles of each wine type will be produced for 50,000 yen each (US$624), and each bottle will be numbered.Evangelion Sparkling Eva 01 BRUT Karakuchi" is a dry, not very sweet wine; "Evangelion Sparkling Eva 00 SEC Nakaguchi" features Rei Ayanami and is a semi-sweet wine; and "Evangelion Sparkling Eva 02 DEMI SEC Amakuchi" is a sweet wine featuring Asuka Langley. All three bottles feature the characters drawn in gold print on a black bottle.
