Enjoy Evangelion with a 9-Patty Burger, Spear Fork, and Life-Size Rei

To celebrate the Blu-ray release of Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo, Japanese fast food chain Lotteria will have a nine Patty burger that comes with a cool original Spear of Longinus fork. This 9x9 burger monstrosity has nine patties and nine pieces of cheese and one way to an easy heart attack. What does a burger have to do with Evangelion? Nothing, but the burger is kind of a pun on the Japanese title of the movie, Evangelion Shin Gekijō-ban Q, because the number 9 in Japanese is pronounced "kyū," kind of like "Q." I would totally get one of these burgers just for that awesome "Fork of Longinus." I doubt we'll see anything like this when the Blu-ray is released in the U.S.

The Fork of Longinus is worth the risk.

Lotteria is also having a drawing for a life-size Rei figure. Yes, a LIFE-SIZE REI. Rei stands 5 feet 2 inches tall and is fully articulated. A life-size Rei of their very own? That's the dream of many otaku. Many of the creepy ones. I don't want to know what the winner is going to do with this Rei figure. I know what I would do; put her in my passenger seat so I could take the carpool lane all the time. What will really happen to this life-size Rei figure is far more disturbing.

Oh the things that will happen to Rei.
