ANN Review: NGE Campus Apocalypse (Vol. 01)

A bit belated but back in September my review for Neon Genesis Evangelion: Campus Apocalypse (Vol. 01) [phew, long name!] was posted over at AnimeNewsNetwork.

It’s been a long while since Dark Horse has had a manga series I was interested in (excluding the ever-engaging Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service) but the art style and plot of this looked like something right up my alley. The fact it was Neon Genesis Evangelion was just an interesting quirk.

Overall I enjoyed it, the art was really nice (non-NGE characters looked especially good with the freedom to design from scratch) and the plot was alright. I was irked at the end when Shinji stepped up as the stereotypical passive anime-hero to join this fight he never really gave enough thought to, but other than that I read the book with few complaints. Not overly exciting, but decent entertainment for those new and old to the franchise.
