Among my interests that lie in Japan, the two largest things I’ve become a fan of are idols, and Shin Seiki Evangelion. I never would have thought these two fandoms would actually meet each other in any way, but there it is. Watanabe Mayu was chosen to promote the television airing of the second new Evangelion film(which is awesome by the way) in the form of CMs, which will be shown in a couple days.
Mayu’s flirted with Evangelion a few times, with cosplaying and singing the theme song somewhat recently on ‘Naruhodo High School’, but being chosen to actually promote the movie, to me, is something to nerd out about. I just wish they would have let her cosplay as different characters of Evangelion in each CM; My mind probably couldn’t take it.
