drama mecha psychological


The manga based on the series, written and illustrated by series character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, has been serialized in Shonen Ace since 1995. The serialized and volumized editions are both published by Kadokawa Shoten. The manga exists as a separate entity from the anime, and features a number of distinct differences (examples: Shinji's eyes are brown instead of blue; Shinji and Rei's relationship is strengthened more; not all of the Angels that were in the anime appear in the manga). Drawing from the original story outline, the completed anime series, as well as his own artistic freedom, Sadamoto has portrayed an account of the story that has both distinct convergence and divergence with the anime version.

Most likely of why you're here is because you just finished the anime known as "Neon Genesis Evangelion" and simply want more, more beyond than what the Rebuild movies could ever provide for you! Curious ol' you now wonders, "Is it even worth reading this manga?" Granted, it is assumed you really enjoyed the anime series to even consider it. Otherwise, if you're one of the ones that didn't like Neon Genesis Evangelion to begin with (and that's okay!), you'll for the most part see exactly what you were offered in the anime and thus you might want to steer clear of this manga.

Has decided to make the review of this manga so it has very strongly hooked on me. First I always liked a theme of psychology, strangenesses, etc. (and Evangelion I consider as the best psychological anime/manga, that proves numerous interrogations) and secondly I would like to learn history on manga. And I have not regretted. Even those moments, characters, an outcome of a story, incomprehensibility of a story, incompleteness of a story, "not up to disclosing" of characters and other, other, that in TV or Movie initially have not liked me with perusal manga completely have exchanged (and favourite only were grew fond)

Both are about children piloting giant robots, while dealing with their feelings of fear, loss and despair.
A similar level of dramatism and desperation. Main characters, Rock and Shinji are pretty similar and have very deep internal monologues about live and death.
