Friday Video: Mazda Cosmo Sport in Neon Genesis Evangelion 2.0


While we’re on the topic of Mazda Cosmo Sports, we have no idea what Neon Genesis Evangelion 2.0 is about, but there is a decidedly old school Cosmo in an animated cityscape leading a bunch of gigantic, futuristic military vehicles. Video below the fold.

    Neon Genesis is a “Giant Alien” type anime where giant “angels” attack earth. There is also the father & son subplot.( It also has a really cool Renault Alpine in it too.)
    (Thats one anime geek dollar for me.)

    Thanks for the video post

    I believe this car would pay homage to Ultraman series, afterall, Ultraman is also an alient lifeform savior to the human beings and planet earth :D Well this anime is cool and its a must watch for any anime lovers, its plot would terrify all human being and all, with stories quoted so closely from the Holy Bible

    Yes, theres a cool Renault Alpine as well. LOL

    The original anime series feature the character of Misato Katsuragi driving a customized blue Renault Alpine A310 V6.

    In this theatrical remake of the series, the Alpine was replaced by the Cosmo.

    Nice car drawing! Most cartoons do a crappy job drawing the vehicles because the animators are more interested in other aspects of the episode. That truck looks like a Scania.

    That Anime pic on Fabio’s link reminds me of Charlie’s Angels.

    Cool little clip! A refreshing change from the run of Seibu Keisatsu the past few months on Friday video!

    Yoshiyuki Sadamoto did the manga, as well as directed Neon Genesis Evangelion 2.0. He’s a big car guy, specifically Alfa Romeos. One of his artbooks is even named Alpha.
