I liked Kaji a lot.. (view spoiler)
Misato& Kaji love is irreplaceable. I'll always love their relationship.

So the Eva 01 is actually (view spoiler) Oh, makes sense. ..and I am glad explanations were better here than in anime. We got a bit history lessons too. Good to know more background information.

*sigh * It has been such a long time I read a really good manga. It seems it is going to be one of my favorites!

I know this will no doubt be considered a blasphemy by some, but I need to say it: I hate reading right-to-left. Maybe it's one of those signs that I'm just too old, and it's no doubt a sign of cultural insensitivity, but give me left-to-right text any day.

The problem with that, though, is that the local library had Eva volumes 1-7 in left-to-right format, but the last three parts of the story are only in the original Japanese format (but with the text, at least, still translated). As a result,

I've been away too long from this series. Unlike the anime, this manga version seems to give a more sympathetic view of Asuka, which for me makes it exponentially more enjoyable. The revelations in this volume begin to give insight into the duality of Gendo as well as the finality of Kaji. Also the revelations of Yui's life are both tragic and confounding. We learn more about the truth of the Second Impact as well as the genesis of the EVA units, NERV and SEELE. And finally the beginning of the ...more

The manga, as we all know, differes greatly from the anime for a multitude of reasons that one may or may not like. But I highly recommend reading this one volume if you read no others. Volume 8 really delves into some history that is lacking the original anime. You find out aby Fuyutsuki's motivations, about Kaiji. You find out a little bit more about Gendo, Ritsuko and even Katsuragi. Things that anime glances over and only hints at. I highly recommend it if you are interested in any of these ...more

In this volumen we get to see more of the background story, of why the eva's were created, of the mistery group behind it, of shinji and family past

(a 14 volumes Manga with a sci-fi story)

8 out of 14: it remains true what I wrote for the first volume; and... I'm quickly becoming quite fond of the genre (not yet a manga addict I think and hope...), while I clearly understand why these are mostly reading for teenagers, and not really for adults.
The story goes on and becomes more and more intriguing and dark, with some good turning points; there are now many characters and all of them grow in each volume (and almost a

Flashbacks que dan algo de luz en torno a la misteriosa figura de Gendoh Ikari. Otro gran volumen en el que vamos conociendo más sobre todo lo que rodeó al segundo impacto y a las personas involucradas en él.

Sempre più bello ed intrigante. Inoltre pur avendo saltato praticamente 3 volumi sono riuscita a seguire bene la storia (cosa che non mi è capitato con altre serie dei quali ho saltato un solo volume)

Questo volume ci racconta la nascita della Nerv. Di come tutto ha inizio, e di come si riflette sulle vicende di oggi. Bellissimi Shinji e Rei *_* e ho pianto anche stavolta..non me lo aspettavo.
Intrighi pazzeschi, ma cosa c'è davvero sotto? voglio il prossimo!
