The exhibition features about 300 pieces including original sketches and setting materials from the famous animated series. Some items from the recent new theatrical edition will be shown for the first time.

Visitors will get to see performances by popular characters such as Shinji Ikari and Rei Ayanami as well as the procedure of animation production. Notes written by the staff and setting materials will help you better understand how such a state-of-the-art animation is made.
