A contest announced on the NERV Purchasing Department 4th BS Branch program on BSTV on September 12 will let Japan’s biggest Evangelion fan see the Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 (Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban :||) film before it premieres in theaters on June 2020.
Fans can enter the “Eva Love No. 1 Championship: Me and Evangelion” contest by submitting their fandom “resume” that chronicles their history with Hideaki Anno’s television anime, films, and spinoffs. The biggest Evangelion fan will be selected from the resume applicants. As an example, NERV Purchasing Department 4th BS Branch host Sakura-Saki Inagaki filled out an application.
Contestants can submit applications until November 17.
Toei screened the first 10 minutes of Studio Khara’s Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 at the Japan Expo event in Paris, Anime Expo in Los Angeles and in Shanghai, as well as in various places inside Japan, on July 6.
