Gainax releases Sadamoto’s Evangelion manga in full color.

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

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.

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

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.

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

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

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

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

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

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.

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

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.

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

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.

“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 […]
