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 iconic 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 a monstrous biomechanical weapon called “Evangelion” to match the Angels’ fearsome power…
In the latest Volume 13, the world hangs in the balance as NERV pilot Asuka fights to survive an onslaught of Evas determined to destroy her. Shinji rushes to help, but he may be too late. Deep inside the NERV command center, Dr. Ikari is about to set in motion the last act of the Instrumentality Project. Everything has gone according to Ikari’s plans so far, but even he cannot foresee the role Shinji will play in determining the future!
