As we walked down the hallways of NERV Headquarters inside Evangelion World at the Fuji-Q Highland theme park in Japan, we saw a series of doors with peepholes installed in them. We noticed other folks looking in, so we did the same. The peepholes were clever views into rooms where NERV staff (Misato, Kaji, etc.) were “working” on various things. One door, though, seemed somewhat odd for the fact that the peephole what LOWER than normal. I bent over, curious, and looked into it:
What I saw inside was EXACTLY what you expected in an Evangelion theme park attraction.
Yup. It was there so you could look up Misato’s skirt.
Welcome to Japan.
Keeping “in theme” with the exciting entertainment this attraction was providing, we came across a changing room where Rei was getting into her pilot suit. Shannon sat there and waited for her.
Did I mention we were in Japan?
After navigating through Evangelion World, we came to the FINALE of the attraction…
But more on that tomorrow…
