Despite foreboding futures in the face of the global pandemic, UNIQLO isn’t slowing its UT collection launches. Alongside heavyweight partnerships with Daniel Arsham, Gunpla and various classic cars, the Japanese retailer is preparing an assortment of Evangelion-indebted goods, ahead of the next film in the famous anime franchise.

With Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time set to hit Japanese theaters this summer, the franchise is joining UNIQLO UT for a selection of T-shirts that draw from the legacy of Evangelion, ranging from the iconic EVA mecha suits to some of the heady psychological themes present in the TV series. Illustrations recognizable imagery, like Nerv pilot Kaworu and one of the fearsome Angels, are juxtaposed against the text prints, which range from recreations of the displays seen inside the EVA models to “Beast Form 2nd Phase,” a reference to the term that denotes EVA models shifting into fighting mode.

The Evangelion capsule is available on UNIQLO’s website, though the special packaging isn’t currently offered to Western shoppers.

Most recently, Bandai introduced a Evangelion Unit-01 Metal Build EVA figure.
