In the official Twitter account of the Sumo Priest of the Yokoyamasaimyo temple, located in the city of Kawagoe in the prefecture of Saitama, a publication was made immensely viral in social networks in Japan. Tempo Yokoyamasaimyo staff writes a motivational phrase on their bulletin panel, and on this occasion he chose one of Neon Genesis Evangelion:
«「 なんだ か 楽 に なっ た わ 誰 か か 話すって 心地 いい の ね 知ら 知ら た 」エヴァ エヴァ ゲリオ ゲリオ 惣流 惣流 アスカ アスカ ラ ラ ー [I feel better It is good to talk to someone. I did not know that. - Evangelion, Asuka Langley SOURYUU] »
This phrase is taken directly from the Evangelion movie: 2.0 You can (not) Advance, as a fragment of a conversation between Asuka Langley Shikinami and Misato Katsuragi, before the first one is directed to the evidence of the EVA-03 unit. In fact, users pointed out that the last name used in the newsletter was wrong, and the temple staff Yokoyamasaimyo shared an update pointing that they returned to write it with the right surname. "They are right, it was Shikinami! We will rewrite it tomorrow, we apologize with the fans, "he wrote the account.
About Rebuild of Evangelion
After the departure of Hideaki Anno and the decline of the Gainax Studies, Anno founded Studio Khara and began the production of a reboot of the franchise, known as rebuild of Evangelion. This cinematographic project has released to date three of the four feature films, in September 2007, June 2009 and November 2012.
The fourth film, entitled Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0 Thrice Upon A Time, was originally scheduled to be released in 2015, but it was delayed indefinitely because Hideaki Anno participated in the production of the Shin Godzilla film. The film premiered on March 8 in Japan, and four weeks after its premiere reported having sold 4,513,374 entrances for a cumulative collection of 6,898,613,200 yen (around 62.4 million dollars).
