Translated, this tweet simply congratulates Shin Eva for crossing the 10 billion yen mark. It also congratulates the staff and fans who have worked on Eva for 26 years.

Edit: A new estimate puts it at 10.19 billion yen, with a whopping 135 million earned on Sunday!

We expect a PR statement Monday morning. Meanwhile, feel free to discuss this on our forum!
