I think, for this instance, we can use a soft "g" in Evangelion...

^ Now we just need to stuff them in some pastry, and all will be right.
Don't worry if you don't get that, I suspect that only, like...three to five people here will get that reference by now..

Not only did I get it, it spawned another tagline:

Jelly's in it's pasty, All's right with the world.

If I recall, it was around the time of the Zeru pancake-maker, no?

I was doing a call-back to Evanjellydonut, one of the oldest NGE parody fics.

I figured that would go over someone's head.

and its now super rare and i just threw a gold coin in to my already super rare box set so i am happy Btw miss grant called us a underground movement

They definitely aren't super rare. I see that three have been sold on eBay in the past two months. They are pretty uncommon though. No, the haven't been destroyed due to time. They hold up way better than every other release, because they're made of metal. In the future, keep in mind that signing things of inherent value actually decreases their value.

I'll tell you what is rare though, the corresponding box that he made for the movies. It wasn't an official release, so there are far fewer of them around.

I picked one of those up from eBay for like $40 along with both movies in box. That was a pretty sweet deal.

BTW, did you know that they also released two volumes of Evangelion on laserdisc in North America? Now those are rare. I've got the first one factory sealed. Still keeping a lookout for the second one.
