I know I stretch the word “terrific” a lot when I post Super Terrific Japanese Thing, but by god, this video is terrific in the most traditional sense of the word. A bunch of Japanese nerds got together to re-do the opening credits to Evangelion in live-action, and it’s just outstanding. I’m not lying when I say I’d watch these guys re-do the entire TV series, as long as they kept their budget about the same. If you go over to Kirainet, there’s also live-action versions of the ’80s Fist of the North Star opening theme as well as the old soccer anime Captain Tsubasa. If you enjoyed this, I imagined both of those are worth your time.
