Neon Genesis Evangelion Vol. 2 GN

(W/A/CA) Yoshiyuki Sadamoto
Japan's most controversial anime series is over - but not the manga version of Neon
Genesis Evangelion! Not simply a retelling, this manga is anime co-creator Yoshiyuki
Sadamoto's personal interpretation of the Evangelion characters and story - sure to
intrigue new and old fans alike. The human race nearly ended in 2000 A.D. when a top-
secret encounter between an Antarctic expedition and an entity code-named "The Angel" triggered a global catastrophe. Now, in 2015, the Angels have returned, and Shinji Ikari, a fourteen year-old child of the new Earth, is summoned to the super-technological city of Tokyo-3 by his long-estranged father Gendo, and forced without warning to pilot the monstrous biomechanical weapon called "Evangelion" to match the fearsome power of the Angels. Beaten unconscious in his first sortie, only to have the Eva defeat the Angel on its own, Shinji attempts to recover from an encounter he neither understands or remembers, still disregarded by the father from whom he desperately seeks approval. Moving in with his commanding officer, Capt. Katsuragi, Shinji sets out to try and re-start a "normal" life in school... One of the founding members of Gainax, Japan's most progressive anime studio, Yoshiyuki Sadamoto was also the character designer for their recent Adult Swim hit FLCL. Neon Genesis Evangelion Vol. 2 contains a special bonus interview with Sadamoto himself!
