You Can (Not) Advance

evangelion ucc coffee project rei ayanamiLook what I got from UCC yesterday!

Apparently, there was a special promo for Evangelion's second of four films, "Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance". Coffee drinkers will get a chance to win Asuka Langley Shikinami's figure by Kotobukiya, Petit Eva Secial Figure Set (5 kinds), or UCC Special Eva cell phone wallpaper '09 ver (18 kinds) by subscribing the QR code on the can via the Internet.

Sadly, the promo was held last year in Japan from May 18 to July 31, 2009. And I'm willing to bet you need to be in Japan in order to participate. Although I can't really speak or read Japanese, so you might wanna check out the official website for more info instead of taking my, or rather, Gigazine's word for it.

There are 6 designs in the series featuring Rei Ayanami, Asuka Langley, Shinji Ikari, Kaworu Nagisa (with the Giant Moon), new character Mari Illustrious Makinami, and the cast in chibi form. I have the one in the picture sitting on my PC table, but I'm not sure whether or not I should drink it. From what I've read online, it's more milk than it is coffee and the taste leaves a lot to be desired.

To drink or not to drink... that is the question.

Aside from whether or not I should buy the entire set anyway.

Honestly though, I'm not even a huge fan of Evangelion, but apparently, most people think my internet identity, "Rei Kuassary", was based on Rei Ayanami. Even my nephew and brother-in-law thinks so, and hence I have a lot of Rei Ayanami figures from them. Not that I'm complaining of course, but I think I need to look up on this second movie.

Did I mention there are other sets with other promos too? Though I've only seen this set in the Philippines, particularly in UCC Tomas Morato. ^_~
