A replica of the “Spear of Longinus” from the anime series “Neon Genesis Evangelion” has been installed in Ube, Japan. The spear, which is over seven meters long, is located in Tokiwa Park in Ube, the birthplace of the series’ director. The spear was created by young employees at Ube Steel Co., using scrap steel and other materials. It weighs about 1.2 tons and features the characteristic spiral design of the original spear. The sculpture is part of a promotional campaign for the city and will be displayed until January 8. It is illuminated in red and other colors in the evening. Ube Mayor Keiji Shinozaki hopes that fans from both Japan and abroad will come to visit the exhibit.
