Anime bicycle

I watched Japanese cartoons when I was a kid growing up in Japan, but today there are adults that really geek out on Japanese anime (pronounced "ann ee may"). For ¥47,000 (about US$400), you can buy the special edition Neon Genesis Evangelion Bicycle. This is a junky-looking full suspension Bicycle-Shaped-Object (BSO) with low-end components and a hinge in the top tube so the bike folds in half. This "EVA 01 BIKE" was introduced at the Tokyo Anime Fair on March 23. I think one of my neighbors paid about $50 for a similar toy bike with a Power Rangers motif or something.
