Here's where you can find information about what merchandise featuring Kaworu is available online, and where you can find it. Links to online stores in no way constitute an endorsement. In fact, we have never done business with most of these places. As with any other purchases, caveat emptor. All prices are current as of October 1, 2000.

CDs

Evangelion Addition
Evangelion Addition cd coverKaworu only appears on one Evangelion soundtrack cd, Evangelion Addition. He appears in a very silly, 21-minute-long sound drama featuring all of the members of the cast. The cd is long out of print. The only copies that I have seen are Son May copies, produced in Taiwan, a country that does not respect international copyright laws. For those who don't know, Son May copies are illegal to buy, sell, or possess in almost every other country in the world. (Just because something is widely available doesn't mean that it's legal.) If you understand this and want to take that risk, Son May copies of Evangelion Addition are available from many different places.

Manga
The Japanese releases have not gotten anywhere close to the point in the series where Kaworu appears, so it'll be quite some time before manga featuring Kaworu is available in English, either.

Animation Cels

Kaworu hand-painted reproduction cel
(11k) Kaworu hand-painted reproduction celGainax decided not to release production cels from Evangelion (only a few have snuck out), so there are only two types of Evangelion cels that they have released into the market. The first type are machine-reproduced cels, and the second are machine-reproduced but hand-painted cels. Luckily, the Kaworu cel (a shot from episode 24) falls into this second category, but that also means that it's fairly expensive.
