Of course, Megumi Ogata voices her iconic character Shinji Ikari again
The official website for Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion Z, the second installment of the train transforming robot anime franchise Shinkalion, announced today that its crossover episode with the Evengleion franchise will be aired in Japan on September 17, 2021, as its 22nd episode. It will be the third time for Evangelion to collaborate with the Shinkalion anime, following the first TV anime series in 2018-2019 and the feature film Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion the Movie: Mirai Kara Kita Shinsoku no ALFA-X in December 2019.
Asw with the previous two collaboration, Megumi Ogata will reprise her iconic role as Shinji Ikari once again. She says, "It's really great and I'm very grateful to be asked to collaborate with another work after the main 'Evangelion' series came to its end. For the 'Evangelion' fans, I hope they'll enjoy this new form of Eva, which will also be powered up by the Z-combination. For the fans of 'Shinkarion,' I hope they will enjoy the activities of the unusual Shinkarion Z and a little strange Onii-san."
