Description

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...

Beaten unconscious in his first sortie, Shinji recoves from an
encounter he neither understands or remembers. Moving in with his superior officer, the lovely Capt. Katsuragi, Shinji tries to start a "normal" life in school...

Eva Vol. 2 contains a Japanese sound FX glossary plus three special bonuses: a Q&A with Sadamoto, plus commentary by Angel designer Yoshitou Asari, and by the voice of Shinji, Megumi Ogata!
