So many cameras and mobiles.

Unit-01 went berserk for a while, exhaling smoke.

The eyes shine.

But in the end, the test drive was a success.

"Evangelion Shout Contest" was held after the test drive.

He won the contest by shouting Shinji's famous line "I'm Shinji Ikari, pilot of Evangelion Unit-01!"
