According to the LORE of the multimedia franchise based on the original anime produced by the Gainax Studios and created by Hideaki Anno, Neon Genesis Evangelion, on March 30, the Birthday of the Rei Ayanami character is commemorated.

For this reason, the date was established by the base of fans as the official birthday of the character.
Multiple users and artists on Twitter shared illustrations to celebrate the character's birthday, mainly through the hashtag # 綾波レイ 生誕 祭 2021.
