By Aaron Clark on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015 in Manga, Merchandise, Neon Genesis Evangelion (manga), News.

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 […]

Final volume of Neon Genesis Evangelion manga released.

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 […]

Gainax releases Sadamoto’s Evangelion manga in full color.

By Aaron Clark on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 in Manga, Neon Genesis Evangelion (manga).

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 […]

You can now buy Misato’s shoulder holster.

By Aaron Clark on Wednesday, March 5th, 2014 in Merchandise.

In the past I’ve complained about some of the unnecessary Evangelion merchandise that has been made in relation to Evangelion.  I’ve joked that they scraped the barrel and then sold that too.  But, every so often, they get it right and make something that hardcore nerds actually want.  In collaboration with Evangelion character designer and […]

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, […]

Evangelion Manga Volume 13 released

By Aaron Clark on Tuesday, November 6th, 2012 in Manga, Neon Genesis Evangelion (manga).

Today, Viz Media released volume 13 of the Evangelion manga, and for the first time, released it simultaneously with the release in Japan. Usually, we wait a good 6-12 months to get an English version here in North America, so I’m pleased, as they apparently pushed very hard to get it out sooner rather than […]

Viz Manga adds Evangelion Manga to its online viewer.

By Aaron Clark on Tuesday, August 16th, 2011 in Manga, Neon Genesis Evangelion (manga).

One of the greatest weaknesses of the Evangelion manga is its rate of production.  The mangaka, Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, has been working on it since prior to the original television series airing in 1995.  Which means that yes, the series is still ongoing, and has not yet finished.  However we are getting quite close to the […]

Evangelion manga resumes with stage 84.

By Aaron Clark on Saturday, April 9th, 2011 in Neon Genesis Evangelion (manga).

If you’re not really familiar with the Evangelion manga, you should probably take a seat, because you’re about to get schooled.  You see… Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, as amazing as an artist as he may be, is terrible at being a manga-ka.  He has taken multiple, long breaks from producing the Evangelion manga, which he began in […]

On ambitions and monstrosities.

By Aaron Clark on Friday, February 4th, 2005 in Angelic Days, Manga, Personal.

“I closed not my eyes that night. My internal being was in a state of insurrection and turmoil; I felt that order would thence arise, but I had no power to produce it. By degrees, after the morning’s dawn, sleep came. I awoke, and my yesterday’s thoughts were as a dream. There only remained a […]
