Viz announced yesterday on Twitter that they will be releasing a final volume of the Neon Genesis Evangelion Omnibus edition.  Slated June 2016, the omnibus volume will include the final two individual volumes of Yoshiyuki Sadamoto’s Evangelion manga, volumes 13 & 14.  I anticipate there will be some bonus content produced to help pad out the […]

By Aaron Clark on Tuesday, February 10th, 2015 in Manga, Neon Genesis Evangelion (manga), News.

While some fans managed to get their hands on it a little bit early, the fourteenth and final volume of Yoshiyuki Sadamoto’s Neon Genesis Evangelion manga had its official release today.  It’s been a long-awaited conclusion for some, having begun in December of 1994, and concluding in June of 2013.  I for one have been […]

Atop The Fourth Wall covers The Shinji Ikari Detective Journal

By Aaron Clark on Thursday, July 31st, 2014 in Fandom, Manga, Shinji Ikari Detective Diary (manga), Video.

Linkara of Atop the Fourth Wall recently performed a live show at Anime Midwest 2014 where he covered the Shinji Ikari Detective Diary.  If you’re unfamiliar with Atop the Fourth Wall, it’s a web show that covers and riffs on comics that are awful in various ways. Now, I haven’t been terribly supportive of Detective […]

Gainax has released the first stage of Yoshiyuki Sadamoto’s Evangelion manga to the ComicWalker platform in full color.  Also, they’ve released a substantial portion of the first stage for free through their online viewer.  Details are sparse, so it’s uncertain as to whether they plan on doing more than just the first stage, but it […]

Evangelion Detective Manga Licensed? Really?

By Aaron Clark on Friday, February 22nd, 2013 in Manga, Shinji Ikari Detective Diary (manga).

To quote Simon Tam, “This must be what going mad feels like”.  Apparently in late September of last year, Dark Horse Manga, in a bid to own ALL THE THINGS, licensed Shinji Ikari Detective Diary.  I am just finding out about this now.  Why on earth did no one tell me this?  Or did no […]

The Evangelion Omnibus is a real thing.

By Aaron Clark on Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 in Manga, Neon Genesis Evangelion (manga).

As I said previously, Viz reissued volumes 1-3 of the Evangelion manga in an omnibus format which many retailers are referring to as “3-in-1”.  Previously, I couldn’t find a photo of the book, or the book itself for that matter, so I was kind of weary.  It’s an odd philosophical thing (like the tree falling […]

Get caught up with the Evangelion manga

By Aaron Clark on Tuesday, November 13th, 2012 in Manga, Neon Genesis Evangelion (manga).

One of the biggest weaknesses Yoshiyuki Sadamoto’s Evangelion manga has is its sporadic progress over a long length of time.  The series has had 13 volumes in about 18 years.  Keeping an ongoing series of that age in print can be a difficult task for a publisher.  Many of the old volumes, especially volume 9, […]
