A few weeks ago I talked about the K-On! Christmas cake, and mentioned there was another cake that looked even cooler. I planned to order one for Sean, but missed the cutoff date and kicked myself for days.
Then, on Christmas Eve, I dropped into Lawson to pick up a couple last minute things, and the Christmas cakes caught my eye. Most of them were the normal whipped cream & strawberry concoctions, but the one on the end stood out simply because of the price tag–4500 yen. 4500 yen for a conbini Christmas cake? The hell?
And then I bought it.
Neon Genesis Evangelion Christmas Cake.
For those unfamiliar, Neon Genesis Evangelion is an apocolyptic mecha action series. The very basics of it is robots fighting, with lots of complicated psychological/philosophical stuff going on. Very twisty business. So let’s Christmas!
A strong strawberry scent hit me as soon as I opened it. Sean thinks it looks like LCL, particularly from a rather memorable scene in the series. I won’t spoil it for anyone that hasn’t seen it yet, but Evangelion fans, what do you think?
But wait…there’s something else in the box!
The real joy of this was the look on Sean’s face when I brought the cake home. It might have been a bit pricey, but it was totally worth it to make him so happy. I had given up hope of snagging one, but I’m really glad I was able to get this Christmas surprise!
So, Evangelion fans, what do you think? Worth the price? And would you want a Prog Knife of your very own?
