Transformers and Evangelion Crossover?!
In what appears to be one of the strangest news to come out of Japan in a long time, it appears that Transformers will be crossing over with Neon Genesis Evangelion. For those who may not be familiar with Evangelion, it was one of the most popular and influential animes since its inception in the mid-1990’s. Evangelion has spawned television series, movies, manga, records, as well as loads and loads of merchandise.
What the Transformers X Evangelion will lead to is anyone’s guess. But at the moment we have a look an image featuring Optimus in EVA-01’s color scheme. The news comes from Anime News Network and the scan appears as though it comes from the latest Dengeki Hobby magazine.
Here is a translation of the text provided by Anime News Network
The Angels are invading. Breaking a long silence, the mysterious life-forms known as the Angels suddenly appear. The weapons the UN forces gather together in retaliation can’t even scratch them. In the end, they turn to the secret agency, NERV, to manage the anti-Angel strategy.
With Neo-Tokyo 3 in their sights, the Angels slowly advance upon the city…but suddenly a spaceship comes hurtling down from the sky above the Angels: the Sky Lynx! Out of the ship emerges warriors of the far-off planet Cybertron. They’ve come to investigate after noticing an unusual energy reading.
“We can’t let a disaster like the Second Impact occur on this planet.”
“What?! What are these monsters?!”
The shocked Cybertron Convoy sets its sights on an enemy much bigger than themselves.
