Neon Genesis Evangelion Traditional Cast Iron Kettles

You might not immediately think of Japan’s traditional cast iron kettles as a perfect match for anime merchandise, but a recently released Mobile Suit Gundam Zaku head kettle changed your mind in that regard last year. last.

The Mizusawa Foundry Industry Cooperative Association, which specializes in Nanbu traditional handicraft ironwork, definitely feels the same way, because it is going to release a Nanbu tetsubin Cast iron set inspired by the iconic anime “Neon Genesis Evangelion.”

Nanbu tetsubin are cast iron kettles and an iconic traditional craft of Iwate Prefecture, with a history of over 900 years.

This build takes those expertly crafted iron kettles and gives them a special design featuring Evangelion Unit-01, piloted by Shinji Ikari. The spout almost looks like an extension of Unit-01’s arm, making it a perfect tea brewing tool for Evangelion fans.

The kettles will be available via an online store, as well as at Evangelion stores across Japan starting March 8.
