Calling all pop culture geeks! The Sydney leg of the Evangelion Art Exhibition tour opens in the Japan Foundation Gallery today, showcasing artworks from the cult anime and film series Neon Genesis Evangelion. Fans can also pick up exclusive merchandise, available for the first time outside of Japan thanks to Madman. Thanks to everyone who booked for Saturday's Q&A talk event (booked out!) and auditioned for the voice-acting workshop with voice actress Yuko Miyamura - we're looking forward to seeing you all here soon! After Sydney (May 10-18), the exhibition will stop in Melbourne (May 27 - June 9) before heading on to France.
