Swordsmiths forge “Spear of Longinus” from Evangelion anime
The replica of “Spear of Longinus” that appeared in “Neon Genesis Evangelion” anime has been forged. The sword/spear remained faithful in looks to the original and measures 3.3 m (over 10 feet).
The sword was forged by one smith, a master that’s been making swords for 40 years and it took him 6 months to make it. Also he used about 20 swords worth of steel to make the replica.
The sword display will be available to the public from July 2012 at the Bizen Osafune Setouchi City, Okayama Prefecture Museum of swords (Osafune). The former township of Osafune is best known as the home of some of the most skilled swordsmiths in Japanese history.
The Evangelion exhibit will run from July 14 to September 17. The same museum hosted an exhibit with the weapons and armor from the Sengoku Basara game last summer, and 20,000 visitors (mostly young people) visited.

I was crowd surfing, and I got thrown into a pit full of huge ass guys and instead of stomping me out, one yelled, “girl!” and they all stopped. Two guys came over and picked me up and carried me through the pit to put me back up on top of people on the other side to continue my surf. I dare you to call metalheads pricks.
reblogging for that ^ omfg
THE SAME PRETTY MUCH HAPPENED TO ME. I got pushed into a pit a week ago and I guess my facial expression described how scared I was and some like 6”4 guy just grabbed my arm and looked straight in my eyes and asked me if I wanted to be lifted away and I nodded and he lifted me to crowd surf aw like why can’t I go to school with a ton of “metalhead pricks”
this is amazing
