Today in Japan, fast food chain Lotteria launched its ridiculous nine-patty hamburger, which was inspired by anime Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo.

While the promotional photo showed a proud hamburger, the real deal is...yeah.

Dubbed the "Q-Story Cheese Burger", it's priced at the equivalent of US$12.86.

Here are various pics collected via Twitter:
