When it debuted in 1995, Neon Genesis Evangelion pushed the envelope of what were acceptable subjects, at least in the context of animated genre. While its baseline plot were ones of familiarity: adolescent angst, post-apocalyptic society, giant mecha, and etc… The series enmeshed controversial subjects dealt rarely, even on live-action dramas. The issues of genetic engineering, incest, cult, and cloning, all presented themselves as characters descended into the bedlam of human psyche.
In conjunction to the release of special edition DVD & Blu-Ray box set of this game changing anime series, Casio G-Shock designed 2 limited edition GA-110 watches. One featured the “plug suit” colorways of Rei Ayanami, the fragile female lead with an enigmatic personality. The other is based on the Evangelion Unit 01, a purple mecha unit piloted by the naÃ¯ve Shinji Ikari. In addition to the special colorways, both featured all the technical convenience found on a G-Shock timepiece. Scheduled to launch during August of this year, the Neon Genesis Evangelion x Casio G-Shock Limited Edition are available for pre-release order on Yahoo! Japan’s Evangelion microsite.
