Rent-a-Girlfriend Manga Creator Draws Chizuru Getting in the Evangelion Robot

Reiji Miyajima watched Evangelion 3.0+1.0 and couldn't dress Chizuru up



As many may know, Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a Time was released in Japan last Monday, and with it, had the best opening week for an Evangelion film yet. Of course, this means that many industry creatives came out of the woodwork to watch it, including none-other than Rent-a-Girlfriend manga creator Reiji Miyajima.


Not being able to help himself (and who can blame him!), he drew the female protagonist of the manga series, Chizuru, in the plug-suit of (arguably) the best girl in Evangelion, Asuka.

Miyajima even live-streamed himself drawing the illustration on his YouTube channel. Though if you want to watch the VOD of Reiji Miyajima's Evangelion x Rent-a-Girlfriend Live Drawing, and unable to watch Eva, maybe watch without the sound:



While Evangelion 3.0+1.0 may not be available to stream anywhere (ya know, with it newly releasing in theaters in Japan and all), the first season of the Rent-a-Girlfriend TV anime is available to stream right here on Crunchyroll.
