To mark the anniversary of Utada Hikaru's debut, Rebuild of Evangelion co-director Tsurumaki Kazuya helmed this music video for her hit song "Beautiful World."

Of course, "Beautiful World" was the theme for Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone. The song was originally released in 2007 and was remixed for 2009's Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance.

Previously, Kingdom Hearts creator Tetsuya Nomura showed off his rather interesting Utada art. It was something else.
