Lol. But wouldn't it be better to open a second store instead of closing the only one. They had a boom going on.
And I want a Rei coffee!

Yeah, I read about it in msn Japan. It shows that the event is popular to the extend that it had to stop. Too bad the final day was May 17th, but had to end early.

Fun thing, the people of the crowd look quite normal for what we take for "otaku".

I'd like to have been there, I want my own EVA in pink.

Chicken looks good, wonder what's the filling in the bread.

It's not good enough for the hardcore fans if they don't sell pills for nervous breakdown and manic depression

Eva is sure like pop culture phenomenon in japan like that's of star wars.

They sell Evangelion good ONLY?
That's pretty... Uneconomical?

Wonder how's the shop going to last. D:

No doubt that clerk has already received offers for it.

Didn't some 7-11 stores in the States do something like that with The Simpsons last year or the year before?
