Because the world just can’t seem to get enough of Neon Genesis Evangelion (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン), Asgard’s back to dish out the latest Eva news with Evangelion in the News. This week we have an awesome comic tribute, an Eva karaoke room and a way cool Asuka (アスカ) figure.
Kotobukiya (コトブキヤ) is at it again with their latest Evangelion entry that’s drool-worthy. The Japanese company known for their exquisite figures uploaded photos of over at Facebook over their Ani*Statues series and eye-patch girl Asuka Langley Shikinami (式波・アスカ・ラングレー) of Evangelion 3.0 graces their line which is set for release on July 2013.
