Evangelion Sachiel Swiss Roll
Anime goodies can be random... And edible too! Premium Bandai has recently released a limited Swiss roll set with a knife and Asuka figure from the Rebuild of Evangelion movies. Gigazine has done a review of it, and let's see what it really has to offer.
The boxes come as they are. The red one has the cake while the orange one has the Asuka figure along with the progressive knife inside.
The cake itself. The face is distinctively that of the angel Sachiel in the anime and movie. The outer layer is said to be made of chocolate sponge, while the inner layers are chocolate cream and ordinary white cream. That is a lot of cream in the cake...
Progressive knife of Eva-02. The knife is made of stainless steel and is 17cm long.
The progressive knife comes with a stand as well as an Asuka figure, which stands about 13cm tall.
So what do you do when an angel cake appears? Cut it down of course!
Even though Sachiel has been cut, a new face still emerges from the cut portion...
... Just like in the anime and the movie ^^;
The cake, knife, and figure set was sold for 4410 Yen (tax inclusive), and it was only available for pre-order in Premium Bandai's pre-order site. Reservation is long closed on 31th July, and the cake is released on 8th October.
Sachiel has been a rather popular "character" in the Evangelion franchise, with a lot of merchandise released for it. My sister is absolutely frightful of it, and she does not understand why it is appealing at all ^^; Anyone here a fan of Sachiel though?
