Racing Team Seeks Anime Fanboy Sponsorship

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a popular fighting-mecha anime franchise. It's so popular this Japanese Super GT300 Toyota Cororlla Axio team thinks fanboys will fork over their money to sponsor the team's seizure-inducing livery.

In case you haven't ever seen the series, NGE is a long-running anime series which tells the tale of giant robots controlled by teenagers in a fight against chaotic-neutral beings called angels. So, you know, standard Japanese anime stuff. The series has grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide since 1995 and therefore deserves a brightly-painted race car, or something.


Team Eva racing has applied an appropriate color scheme and all the right nerdwords and now they're hoping it pays off by requesting sponsorship support from the nerdverse. How that sponsoring action works we have no idea since the team's website is in Japanese, but if you're a true fan, you'll have learned the language it order to watch the series as it was intended.
