"A Cruel Angel's Thesis" is one of the most famous songs in the world today, an icon of Japanese animation that helped make the phenomenon Neon Genesis Evangelion. But how much did the singer-songwriter earn for that single song? In short, millions of dollars, but now he has almost zero bank balance.

To this day there are even more versions of the famous opening of Evangelion, a song that is now part of a mass culture. Still, it's unthinkable to imagine that Neko Oikawa earned so much royalty without ever seeing the anime. Oikawa hosted a show yesterday and shared her story with her ex-husband, who had partially emptied her bank account.

Between spending on a travel agency, on cars, on offices and building a hotel in Cappadocia, which was never completed, the singer spent about 831 thousand euros. All of this was possible thanks to his song "The thesis of a cruel angel"That brings in about 230,000 euros a year. But at the moment he has added that it is in his pockets just under 800 euros For the majority of the assets, around 300 million yen (2 million and 375 thousand euros) were invested in the hotel project. Today she is aware that she wasted a lot of money on her husband, but despite the past suffering after the divorce, today she remembers her past with amusement. However, it appears that Oikawa has amassed the few hours of work that went into drafting the opening of the Evangelion A total of almost 5 million euros in all these years a disproportionate figure, but it reflects the absurd popularity of the legendary song.

And you, what do you think of his story instead? Let us know with a comment below, but not before you check out the new Neon Genesis Evangelion-themed ad campaign.
