On July 31st, the girls of 9nine attended a press conference for the Neon Genesis Evangelion-themed photo exhibition at Seibu Ikebukuro.
For this exhibition, Kawashima Umika cosplayed as Ayanami Rei. "She's a popular character, so I was very nervous that I couldn't eat lunch," she reflected, and continued, "After seeing the picture today, I felt I was able to draw close to her so I was happy."
When asked which member is the most like Rei, Kawashima responded, "If I were to choose, I'd say Hiroro (Murata Hirona)." Meanwhile, Murata, who dressed up as Soryu Asuka Langley, said, "Asuka would be Kawashima-san. They're alike because they don't like to lose."
The photo exhibition is titled 'J:COM presents Evangelion X Bishojo Shashinten – Girls Collection of EVANGELION-'. Aside from Kawashima and Murata, about 30 idols and models, including Kato Natsuki and Triendl Reina, participated in this project.
The exhibition will be held from August 1st to the 6th at Seibu Ikebukuro in Tokyo, and August 15th to the 21st at Daimaru Shinbashi in Osaka.
