Books based on the landmark animated series that redefined the mecha genre.
Japan’s most controversial anime series is over…but not the manga version of Neon Genesis Evangelion! Series co-creator Yoshiyuki Sadamoto’s personal interpretation of the Evangelion characters and story is sure to intrigue new and old fans alike. In 2015, the “Angels” have returned, and Shinji Ikari, a fourteen year-old child of the new Earth, is forced by his father Gendo–commander of the secret organization NERV–to pilot the monstrous biomechanical weapon called “Evangelion” to match the Angels’ fearsome power…
After a profoundly disturbing vision leads Rei to sacrifice herself in combat against the penultimate Angel, Armisael, Kaworu takes the opportunity to try to get closer to his own target. But Shinji’s anger and confusion at Kaworu’s advances develop into even darker feelings when events rapidly force him to come to grips with the secret behind the origin of Rei–a secret kept by the cold, brilliant mind of NERV’s soul-sold genius, Dr. Ritsuko Akagi.
