If you’ve seen Evangelion, you then’ve watched Misato Katsuragi drink at dwelling. Her beer of alternative? Ebisu. Her sake? Dassai.
This is just not low cost sake and underscores the truth that Misato takes her ingesting critically. Plus, as evident within the anime, Misato has all kinds of various Dassai releases—not simply the brewery’s commonplace stuff, both. She’s an enormous fan!
(Asahi Shuzo, makers of Dassai, are featured in my ebook The Japanese Sake Bible. If you have an interest in studying extra in regards to the brewery or sake generally, you should buy the ebook here.)
From June 7 to July 31, the Dassai Ginza Store in Tokyo will be covered in Evangelion. (Note: because of covid-19, there will likely be limits on what number of prospects can enter the shop without delay.)
Plus, the store will recreate Misato’s boozy residence, overturned sake bottles and all.
Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time, a robot anime, was launched this previous March and was a large hit in Japan, making 7.42 billion yen ($67.7 million) in its first three weeks.
