The seemingly immortal Evangelion franchise is producing another bizarre product: Evangelion-themed packages of instant garlic ramen, decorated with images of Rei Ayanami and AT-field shaped fishcake toppings.
The flavor of the dish must be good, as apparently it is “Rei orderded”.
The merchandising blurbs read thusly:
A brand new implementation of a full-original idea! The perfect return of Rei’s requested Ramen.
- Design purely focused on “Eva taste”.
- Original AT-field naruto* inside.
- “Lance of Longinus” seals on the lid.
*A naruto is the swirled fishcake topping often put into ramen dishes, also called kamaboko.
The ita-ramen can be ordered domestically in Japan from stores like AmiAmi, which is selling packs of 20 for a rather costly ¥5,250.
Information on whether or not this is the only design featured on all the ramen packages, or if there are alternate ones is not given, but I for one would also enjoy Asuka decorated bowls so I could choose between the two depending on my mood…
