Enjoying a peaceful life in New-Tokyo 3, high school student Shinji Ikari spends the days with his close-knit group of friends, consisting of his pushy childhood friend Asuka Langley Souryuu; slackers Toji Suzuhara and Kensuke Aida; student president Hikari Horaki; and the eloquent oddity Kaworu Nagisa. However, the arrival of bubbly transfer student Rei Ayanami shakes up the group's status quo, causing a web of love triangles, crushes, and confessions to come bursting forth. Yet the complex state of their relationships becomes the least of their worries when United Nations agency Nerv recruits them for experiments shrouded in mystery. As Nerv continues to impede on the students' lives, Shinji and his friends are set on an irreversible path, with their angelic days long behind them.

An alternate retelling of a classic anime series, Shinseiki Evangelion: Koutetsu no Girlfriend 2nd reinvents these characters as normal students in a world vastly different from the one presented in Neon Genesis Evangelion.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Shinseiki Evangelion: Koutetsu no Girlfriend 2nd is based on Gainax's visual novel of the same title. While the first four volumes are an adaptation of the game, the final two are exclusive stories based on the characters in the game.

The series was published in English as Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days by ADV Manga from May 16, 2006 to August 21, 2007.

"Imagine a Neon Genesis Evangelion where dating the right girl is more important than saving the world." As soon as I saw this one, very simple, sentence, I knew (thought) that this would be my all time favourite manga....ever. However, three volumes in I realized that this is possibly the worst manga I've ever read...worse than even Kingdom Hearts.

Story: Wow....where exactly to begin? Asuka likes Shinji, but she won't admit it. Rei likes Shinji...and will admit it...after a while. Touji and Hikari ARE together and provide a sort of...parallel relationship. Kensuke likes Asuka but Asuka cannot stand him at all. read more

Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days is, simply put, a high school romantic comedy version of the original Evangelion anime. When I first learned about it, I thought that it might be a fun alternate version of a series that I consider to be brilliant or, on the flipside, a laughably bad retelling with little of what made the first series great. Unfortunately, it turned out to fall into the latter category.

Doubtlessly, most anime and manga fans are familiar with the original Neon Genesis Evangelion’s story. Angelic Days share the basic plot – teenagers are chosen to pilot giant robots and learn about growing up in read more

Girlfriend of Steel 2, called Angelic Days in the U.S, is based on a video game by Gainax of the same name, which in turn is based on the Possible World sequence from Episode 26 of the anime. While the art of the manga isn't anything outstanding, I've personally seen worse and luckily, Mr.Hayashi's style improves as the manga goes on.
The plot itself is more or less the same as the Girlfriend of Steel 2 video game, although a few original things are added: namely, the events in Volumes 5 (a flash-backward to Kaworu's past) and 6 (a flash-forward after the events of Volume read more

The art is probably my least favourite aspect of this manga. However, this mainly comes down to personal preference as I am personally not a fan of the early 2000s anime style such as the artstyle of Clannad or other anime from the period. The art itself is competent, although sometimes during the fight scenes it is a little hard to follow what is happening (this may be because I'm a bit dim lol)

The story here is probably the best thing. At the start it seems to just be a continuation of the AU seen in episode 26 of Neon Genesis Evangelion - however it read more
