The first-ever attempt in which an anime will reach the actual moon! A 24-cm titanium Spear of Longinus will be sent to the actual moon, with transport to the lunar surface and release of the spear planned and executed by the “Evangelion to the Moon Committee”. “Hakuto”, a Japan-based team that engages in lunar exploration projects, will provide technical support for the project, which is scheduled to be executed between the end of 2015 and end of 2016.
The cost for transporting the spear to the moon — approximately 100 million yen — will be procured by crowdfunded donations from fans.
Various rewards, such as “personal certificates from Evangelion to the Moon Committee (with name and serial No.)” and “the right to have your name inscribed on the Spear of Longinus that is sent to the moon”, will be given to those who make donations of specified amounts.
This project will be executed only if the target of 100 million yen is reached by 23:00 on April 5, 2015 (Sun.) (Japan standard time). If the target amount is not reached by that deadline, donations will be refunded. We await your support.
