If you’ve seen Evangelion, then you’ve watched Misato Katsuragi drink at home. Her beer of choice? Ebisu. Her sake? Dassai.

This is not cheap sake and underscores the fact that Misato takes her drinking seriously. Plus, as evident in the anime, Misato has a wide variety of different Dassai releases—not just the brewery’s standard stuff, either. She’s a big fan!

(Asahi Shuzo, makers of Dassai, are featured in my book The Japanese Sake Bible. If you are interested in learning more about the brewery or sake in general, you can purchase the book here.)

As Sirabee and Eva Info report, this month, Evangelion and Dassai are teaming up once again.

From June 7 to July 31, the Dassai Ginza Store in Tokyo will be covered in Evangelion. (Note: due to covid-19, there will be limits on how many customers can enter the store at once.)

Plus, the shop will recreate Misato’s boozy apartment, overturned sake bottles and all.

Yeah, what a wonderful idea for a liquor maker, re-make the apartment of a sad, pathetic drunk. Last time I checked, celebrating overconsumption of alcohol really isn’t a socially responsible thing to do.

I sure hope no gun manufacturers hop onto the same style of bandwagon...
