Before the release of the new film "EVANGELION: 3.0" in this fall, "EVA smartphone" will be released in June and fans are gradually getting excited in Japan. And now, EVA Calculator which is themed after the Nerv-furnished equipment, has just been recently released.
Each time you tap on any numbers and symbols, it makes whirring noise or clanging sound. The app description says it actually uses real sound effects from the EVANGELION show, but I'm not sure how authentic they are...? I've seen the whole TV anime series twice and its movies even more times, but still I have no idea in which part of the series these sounds are used...!
I wished that the app had adopted the character's voices or other more specific and signature sound effects, such as the sounds for the scene of Progressive Knife or the scene where an Evangelion screams when it goes berserk. The sounds used in the app are too generic and could be used for any other anime... Also, I wished its UI could be more "Central Dogma" themed or "MAGI" themed, then fans would be more excited...
The app's description says "If you could tell in which scene these sounds are used, you're quite knowledgeable about EVANGELION!" I guess if you love EVA more than me, you would be able to actually know its sounds and enjoy this app a little more I think.
