Late last night, two things happened in Japan: the first six minutes of Neon Genesis Evangelion: Q 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, and that movie's midnight premiere.

This wasn't just the first screening of a big time anime. It was a party. An event.


Japanese website Gigazine was on hand at the midnight screening in Tokyo's Shinjuku.

Soak up the festivities inside and outside the theater.
