Evangelion Cut Out, Clock and Stamp in Review – For the Fans!

Neon Genesis Evangelion made waves in 1995 and has come back recently thanks to the promise of a Hollywood remake to again mark its territory as one of anime’s greatest landmarks. Well, Appliya have brought to the App Store some of the magic which has made Evangelion a hit both then and now. The outcome? Five new apps, three of which I have been able to fondle. Firstly, I expect that these apps will really appeal to fans of the original show and the new live action movie wich is slated for opening sometime this century. Maybe.

If you are interested in What Evangelion is, take a look at a fan’s mash up of what the live action movie could become as well as glimpses of Evangelion anime scenes.

Anime's 'real McCoy'

Though years since bursting onto televisions across the globe, Evangelion remains an anime favourite and to many people, a benchmark to which other Sci-Fi films and series must strive to attain. Until recently, the iPhone has been devoid of anything anime. Sure, some RPG that use anime drawings or anime-inspired  characters have hit the shelves of the App Store but not an official anime release.

Details are still out but Tokyo-based software producer, Appiliya (Appiliya have 26 App Store applications to their name and are quickly ramping production of more) are producing what is to be the iPhone’s first licensed Evangelion application.  The App is purported to make use of many hardware features unique to the iPhone.

From their website:

Appliya’s initial offerings for Evangelion will be “casual” apps that utilize the visual style, characters, and storyline from the Rebuild of Evangelion films. The applications will be the result of a joint production effort between Appliya and Japanese media company Broccoli Co., Ltd. The apps will take advantage of the innovative touch screen on the iPhone and iPod Touch, as well as the device’s camera, calendar functions, and clock. 

Evangelion was first aired in 1995 in Japan and became a worldwide multi-billion dollar production.  It has been a favourite of anime fans since its creation.
