Made-to-order projects do not have a fixed funding goal, and everyone who reserves the product during the project period will receive it after the project ends and the product has been manufactured.

The furisode is a type of kimono that gracefully embodies the Japanese aesthetic. It holds a rich history spanning over 700 years, and remains popular even today for ceremonial and formal purposes. Through this project, we aim to combine the beauty of the furisode with the cultural impact of Evangelion to create a truly magnificent item.

SUCCESS!
This project has achieved its goal!

Evangelion x Full Graphic Kimono Project: Ready for Launch!                    
Tokyo Otaku Mode presents a brand new Evangelion project!

The Evangelion x Full Graphic Kimono Project was born from our desire to combine Evangelion characters with the beauty of traditional Japanese culture. After countless hours of discussion and planning, we are now ready to take our next step forward!

Through this project, we aim to create a Full Graphic Kimono featuring a pattern design based on the film “Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo”.

Currently, a total of six different designs have been carefully created by renowned kimono artists. The colors and graphics of each design are sure to bring back all of your memories and emotions from the Evangelion series.

Based on your opinions and feedback, we will select one of the six designs and produce 100 Evangelion Full Graphic Kimonos exclusive to Tokyo Otaku Mode! Your input is essential to the success of this project, so please share your thoughts with us!

Please note that the designs are subject to change, and that there is a possibility that we may not reach the production phase of the project.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts, and we expect to have the results ready by mid-November! Please also note that your opinions and feedback may be featured in our updates on this page. We greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding!
