By Loran Okay, time for an unpopular opinion: I don’t like Evangelion. I mean, okay, it has plenty of aspects that I like. I like the look of the EVAs themselves, I like the world, but the characters and the whole “deep” story just annoy me. I guess I’m too much of a traditionalist when [...]
June is really proving to be quite the month for manga collecting! Another really full week is ahead of us, fellow otaku, so loosen those purse strings and get ready for excitements such as new Soul Eater, Higurashi, 20th Century Boys, NGE: Campus Apocalypse, and of course, Full Metal Alchemist. There are even some great [...]
By Shannon H Not too much coming out this week, but at least everything we got is a title that is worth writing home about. First and foremost, there is volume 16 of the sci-fi epic, Gantz. For those who live under a rock, Gantz is a futuristic tale about two friends who are killed [...]
by Shannon H. The manga gods (aka Japan) have bestowed upon us some pretty badass titles this week. There is a new volume of the Neon Genesis Evangelion: Raising Shinji Ikari project to help satiate you until Evangelion 2.2 drops on DVD and Blu-Ray later this month, as well as another issue of Dogs, Detroit [...]
By Christopher Troy Wait, another Mari review?! Didn’t we just do one of these like 6 months ago? Yes and no! That was Revoltech Mari. Well the first one at least. This is the Max Factory Figma Maria., she is completely different! Also, FUNimation has Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance currently in theaters, so [...]
Okay, well maybe there is, I mean I really could have done without Angelic Days, and I’m pretty sure The Shinji Ikari Raising Project was only a step above that, (by the way, if you didn’t know NGE means Neon Genesis Evangelion, which is frankly too long a title to fit anywhere other than body text). The reason I’m bringing up Evangelion is because, that’s right, there’s a brand new series! Neon Genesis Evangelion: Campus Apocalypse releases this week. Written and illustrated by someone only known as Ming Ming, which I sincerely hope is a pen name, or at least just a first name, this is a whole new spin on the fave series. In this new vision Shinji Ikari’s parents are gone, and he lives with his legal guardian, Ryoji Kaji, while attending the private NERV Academy. But no one ever told Shinji about its secrets . . . or that he’d find his fellow students Kaworu, Rei, and Asuka out on the streets late at night-fighting with sword, spear, and whip against an enemy that looks very human, but who Kaworu insists are beings called the Angels.
