…and my yearning for Neo Venezia grows stronger by the day.

An interesting bit of news, courtesy of a well-informed chap in a Japanese railway forum I happen to be a member of: JR West are breathing new life into their ageing 500 series shinkansen fleet by giving it an Eva-themed makeover.

Spotted last Wednesday at Matsue Station whilst I was waiting for a later train: a JR West KiHa 126 decked out in full Conan finery.

If you’re a fellow The Return of Superman fan, there’s no need to explain why the moment captured from 29:40 onward is nothing short of an earth-shattering milestone.
And if you’re not … well, I haven’t got the energy to explain so you’ll need to click here and catch up on nearly two years’ worth of smiles, tears, and insatiable childhood curiosity.
Well done, Seoeon. (^_^)

I’ve been following news of this adaptation, on and off, since last year.
On the one hand, this isn’t exactly one of my favourite series. I remember dropping the manga fairly early in its run and waiting for the final tankōbon to come out … just so that I can buy it and find out what happened to everyone in the end. (Wikipedia and snippets of spoilers here and there sufficed to fill in the gap.)

Take one of these and call me in the morning.
Ah, but you’ll need to hang around until September for this one, so dip into some of the vintage stock whilst you wait. A little older, but no less effective.

…exsúltent divína mystéria: et pro tanti Regis victória, tuba ínsonet salutáris.
