    • I seen the anime and I will say this now, it’s weird as heck. I am not kidding, it’s super weird. It’s only 6 episodes too haha. I like Yoshiyuki Sadamoto’s work too. He does an excellent job on character design :).

      • Weird? Hmm, didn’t quite get that vibe, but I’ll keep that in mind. The 6 episode part is kinda what wins me over lol and yes, his design work is great! Love his manga interpretation of Neon Genesis Evangelion!

      • This is probably one of the few anime that has 6 episodes and is still gets positive reviews XD. I read all the manga of Neon Genesis Evangelion and I like how he made the story. Once I read the first chapter, she sings *Pacha Meme*… jk. I got hooked after the first chapter.

      • Oh that’s right, you did read it all — I remember! I have the first 6 volumes omnibus format, so I need to get the other 2 sometime at the end of the summer. Got volumes 13 and 14 already as gifts. But yeah, that meme is the greatest Xd

      • Yeah same here. I got the omnibus and then bought volumes 13-14. I thought he did an excellent job on his part of the story. I haven’t seen the original anime but I will say that the manga was better. The ending was more pleasant.

      • Really? Hopefully someone re-license the End of Evangelion or the entire anime series. I want to watch them all but it’s hard to find them.

      • A re-licensing of ALL of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion would be fantastic, too. Include the recently-released in Japan Bluray visuals and 👌 yes, just yes. I had to get both of my copies from eBay.

      • I would love to get it in Blu-Ray. I am surprised they haven’t done it yet. Times like this, I wish I was in Japan so I can own all the episodes and the last two films.
