JR West’s press release also says that an array of Shinkansen Evangelion Project merchandise will be available, and that passengers can look forward to the Evangelion theme extending to the interior of the train as well.

A given on the merch, the question is, do I need to ride the train to get some of it? At least the line will be in service through March 2017, so there's time to head over and ride it! Won't be a cheap ride, but would be worth it.

By way of comparison, the Garupan train costs ~$2 one way and is as fast as a bus:

Think it'll have orange tinted windows for that proper "hell train" experience? :lol:

Clever bit of promoting for the bullet train:
