    OMG Shinji! It is not the time to self pity! There is a war out there! ( I can't blame him though) I am happy about Asuka, but I would like to have more explanations about how her mother's soul is in EVA? Origin of mankind and all the quick background information was nice but not enough. It would be confusing for someone who hasn't already know about the impacts and angels and all. The more important problem with this volume: COME ON! Why Misato ???? She was my favourite character from NGE! *still OMG Shinji! It is not the time to self pity! There is a war out there!

    Es el mejor volumen hasta ahora, lleno de acción, revelación de secretos. Aunque la actitud de shinji me causo ciertos incovenientes me gusto todo el conflicto interno de el se me hizo impresionante. Me dio tanto gusto que regresara un personaje que me agrada y con mas fuerza. Lo que no me gusto fue comi termino cierto personaje que estimaba mucho pero la manera en que termino fue digna. Una historia increíble en todos los aspectos.

    Questo volume mi ha fatto capire ancora di più quanto il manga sia un complemento indispensabile all’opera di Anno. Stupendo!

    Shinji está ahora frente a la verdad, a un personaje que aborrece y al mismo tiempo quiere. Es momento de madurar, de luchar, ¿luchar contra quién y por qué?, vamos llegando al final de la saga.

    Qué bueno ver que mientras el resto de la franquicia se vuelve cada vez más ilegible/inmirable, Sadmoto sigue dando sus esporádicas pero brillantes muestras de que Evangelion, cuando se interpreta bien y no es para seguir robando a cuatro manos, es uno de los productos -que nunca deja de serlo- más interesantes que hayan dado los traumas japoneses.

    Ya se van cerrando las historias, los misteriores, las distintas incógnitas que nos habían dejado en Neon Genesis Evangelion: El misterio de Lilith y Adam, qué son los ángeles o los Evas. Si bien las temáticas de la narrativa principal, que sería la lucha entre la humanidad y estas deidades, la trama psicológica que tiene es lo que hace extraordinaria esta historia, y más todavía este manga. Se nota demasiado que Sadamoto fue el diseñador de personajes, porque justamente algo que destaca mucho e Ya se van cerrando las historias, los misteriores, las distintas incógnitas que nos habían dejado en Neon Genesis Evangelion: El misterio de Lilith y Adam, qué son los ángeles o los Evas. Si bien las temáticas de la narrativa principal, que sería la lucha entre la humanidad y estas deidades, la trama psicológica que tiene es lo que hace extraordinaria esta historia, y más todavía este manga. Se nota demasiado que Sadamoto fue el diseñador de personajes, porque justamente algo que destaca mucho el manga por sobre el anime es la construcción de personajes. No quita que las batallas, las imágenes, los conflictos entre cada una de las piezas del tablero son buenas, pero si hacemos la comparativa con la evolución de los personajes, esto último está a otro nivel, más todavía como cada imagen acompaña justamente a darle mayor profundidad a esto. Nuevamente Shiji cae en un estado de depresión, siente que nada tiene sentido, todo lo que ha protegido finalmente ha muerto o ya no están dentro de su vida. De ser así, ¿qué sentido tiene salvar o no la humanidad si yo finalmente me sentiré solo, o peor, me sentiré completamente desolado en este mundo? Quizá tiene razón, si analizamos la historia de él, siempre ha salvado a la humanidad, pero no a las personas que él quería: Toji, Rei, Kaji, Misato y Asuka, entonces, ¿a quién realmente está salvando? Mientras está en ese transe, su padre lo encuentra y le dice que se levante, que vaya donde su madre y la pilotee, pero él no quiere, le dice que no tiene sentido, ¿para qué? Este pequeño diálogo que se entre ambos es muy potente, porque su padre le dice a su cara que no lo quiere, él sólo le importaba Yui (su esposa, y la madre de Shinji), pero la perdió y sólo tiene ganas de recuperarla. Desde esa perspectiva, le dice que siempre le tuvo celos, y pues claro, porque Yui en el momento que fue madre, se dio cuenta que este planeta ya estaban sus días contados, la destrucción de la humanidad era inminente, entonces quería dejarle un futuro a Shinji que él pudiera decidir (independiente de su decisión). Muy bien cerrado ese arco de padre e hijo, desde mi perspectiva era necesaria la conversación, cosa que no se dio en el anime, porque claro, se daba por hecho que eso también lo entendió Shinji en la instrumentalización humana (pero eso lo debes deducir). Por otra parte, Misato le explica todo lo corresponde al primer impacto y sus implicaciones en la Tierra sobre esto, pero lo más importante, le da esperanza. Se genera una escena hermosa entre ellos dos, un beso, uno que significa: “Shinji, debes vivir”. Existen distintas especulaciones al respecto, qué es un beso de los verdaderos sentimientos de Misato, qué en verdad es una forma de despedirse como la madre que era de él, pero yo creo que un poco de todo, y lo más importante, darle la esperanza con la siguiente frase: “Eso fue un beso de adulto. Continuaremos con lo demás cuando vuelvas”. A un chico adolescente decirle eso, es darle motivación, hacerle prender la llama de su vida, y decirle: “Ten esto y a futuro te daré algo más. Lucha con todas tus fuerza para que así sea.” , y eso algo que necesita Shinji, para que él sienta que no está solo, que debes seguir tu camino. Realmente es muy emocionante, porque sabes que no es real, al fin de cuentas, era lo último que podía decirle Misato para una inminente muerte. Y bueno, en paralelo tenemos a Asuka, donde por fin despertó, pero lo más importante, despertó porque se dio cuenta que su madre siempre estuvo ahí, pudo superar su trauma psicológico y darse cuenta que ella estuvo cuidándola en todo momento. Pero ella no puede lugar sola contra los Eva series, son demasiados, los cuales están comandados por el Dummy System basados en Kaworu. Necesita de alguien, y ese es Shinij, quién todavía no puede llegar. Cuando finalmente llega Shinji al Eva, se encuentra con una imagen desoladora, con un Eva sepultado, sin poder subirse, por lo que recurre a lo más profundo de su ser y pega un grito desesperado a su madre, pidiéndole ayuda para seguir adelante. Y como la madre que siempre quiso ser para su hijo, ella sale a la defensa para darle la oportunidad de que él elija el destino que desee.

I want to finish the series this week, before my friend's wedding. And ..to just move on with my life. The Story: Shinji has been (stubbornly) crippled for about two volumes now. I can't say I blame him. But it takes the loss of another friend and mentor and the hope of saving another that pushes him to finally fight on. If last volume was about revelations, this volume is about cementing their meanings, confirming the clockwork complications. Quote appreciation! 1) After all, you're still alive. And as long as you're alive there's always something you can do. I'm not like Commander Ikari. I do want you to pilot the Eva, but I don't want you to give up hope. I want you to pilot the Eva for yourself, not others. - Misato, pg. 66 2) Long ago a celestial body carrying an egg of life fell to Earth. [...] - This and other important intel provided by Misato, pgs. 93-97 Art appreciation! 1) Among the myriad Evas with their new, unsettling designs, the closeup of Unit-02 on pg. 121, panel 4, stands out, almost majestically. Look at the eyes and strapping chin gleaming in the light. 2) Calling out to 母さん, Shinji has proves the link between him and Yui is intrinsic in Unit-01, who awakens a second time to aid him in his fight. Ending the book with another striking Eva image like this was the perfect way to wrap up volume 12. (pg. 178) Moment appreciation! 1) Asuka laying waste to the JSSDF and the new Eva series for.. the whole second half of the volume. 'Nuff said. 2) Misato goes out with a kiss kiss, bang bang. (pgs. 140-160) The Extras: 1st ptg, March '11. In the bios Shigeru Aoba is finally mentioned, but, frankly, I forgot how much he really has just blended into the background even now. We don't know much about this guy. His other two Central Dogma operators have been more fleshed out by comparison. Maya via Ritsuko and Makoto via Misato. This guy's job is really just to get panicked and punch buttons. Speaking of underutilized characters, a wild Japanese Prime Minister appears for two whole pages on 83 and 84! In his afterward, Sadamoto admits to us he is incapable of having an A.T. Field, and so for work and parenting he shifs between the (LCL?) states of Shinji and Gendo, except when it comes to his own (A.T. field generating?) selfishness. This is the first book to credit khara before Gainax. And is this really the first time I'm noticing the glossary intro stating what volume it's for? "Welcome to the sound effects glossary for volume twelve [...]" Grrr! The example hiragana SFX, 84-4 is wrong. No fourth panel even exists. This may be from volume 11. The official Japanese and English voice actresses for Asuka are invited to v12 to discuss Asuka, as her re-emergence in the manga and the (then, on the near horizon) 2.0, You Can (Not) Advance, heralding Asuka's appearance in the Rebuilds, was a timely coincidence. The foreign language actresses have met, which is rare, but cool. I'm reminded of how much two episodes were on VHS. And suddenly spiral down my life's rabbit hole. So, this past week, at a con one of my co-worker's (Keli) friends name-dropped her to Monica Rial, who had previously attended (Keli's) Birds of Prose women's book club as a guest. In it, she mentioned that Tiffany Grant was her mentor on her voice over journey. Well, Tiffany and I both worked on a fan project called Eva-R (no, not Rebuild), over at http://www.eva-r.com/. The site is still functioning and I downloaded the trailer with us together in the credits. And now I'm trying to see what Reddit and YouTube think about it. I need to stop! And the website that hosted Tiffany's article, "In Defense of Asuka", mentioned in this book, Modus Productions (www.modusproductions.com/eva-r/tiff/m...), seems to be Tiffany's personal domain or was lent to her by the fanwork. It now redirects to http://www.truantpixel.com/eva-r/tiff.... Crazy! Ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. - Ephesians 6:4, KJV (Thanks, Biblehub.com.)

    A Seele havia ordenado a invasão da Nerv e o que dá o tom para esse volume da história é justamente o forte sentimento de urgência que permeia a ação de todos os envolvidos. Desde os soldados mais rasos, até os postos principais estratégicos e, claro, os pilotos Shinji, Asuka e Rei.

(view spoiler)[Logo de cara já é estabelecido que o bicho tava pegando real oficial com execução e derramamento de sangue na sede da Nerv. O foco principal era a execução dos pilotos sendo que Rei estava desparecida, Asuka foi escondida dentro de um Eva e Shinji estava em mais uma de suas divagações em meio a guerra. A surpresa foi o Momento Darth Vader de Gendo Ikari salvando a vida do filho e deixando claro as suas intenções. Depois disso, Misato meio que se torna a protagonista das principais ações. Ela impede Shinji de se juntar a Gendo, o convence da sua importância na luta, traça o caminho principal para que ele encontre o seu Eva e dá a sua última ordem. O fim digno para uma grande personagem. (Uma mulher de 29 beijar um garoto de 14 é meio assustador mas em meio a guerra, né? ... ) Em paralelo a isso, Asuka acordou do coma já dentro de seu Eva e voltou a ser aquela personagem altamente bad ass que era no início. Isso é ótimo mas terminou em maus bocados no fim (não sem antes ter derramado muito sangue inimigo). (hide spoiler)] A leitura foi rápida e atribuo isso justamente ao sentido de urgência da história. Chegou num ponto de não retorno. A lamentar apenas o fato de que está acabando, dá até pena saber que tem apenas mais dois volumes e fim.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This one's dark. The theme of this volume is pretty much "man's inhumanity to man," with repeated scenes of soldiers mercilessly (and completely unnecessarily!) gunning down NERV employees, and several of them being slaughtered in turn by Gendo and Misato, with dozens later being crushed like ants by Asuka in Unit-02. On the personal level, there's the part where Gendo sits Shinji down and tells him that he resented his own son for taking up part of Yui's love and attention. The interesting major This one's dark.

On the personal level, there's the part where Gendo sits Shinji down and tells him that he resented his own son for taking up part of Yui's love and attention. The interesting major difference here is that Gendo shows up and actually saves Shinji's life, showing off the eye of Adam in his hand before their little father-son talk. In contrast, Asuka's battle seems to have been taken beat-for-beat from the movie, and I'm not sure what to make of this. Maybe Sadamoto just figured that it was already perfect and didn't need any adjustments. What can I say? The art is as amazing as always, the story holds together at least as well as it did in the anime, and the format allows us to spend a little longer digging into the characters, their psychology and motivations. And somehow it's really hitting home for me, as it didn't while watching the anime, how deeply messed up everyone and everything is.

He mentioned in an interview that Evangelion is a way of expression Hideaki Anno was using to burn down his feelings of depression. I wouldn't say that Shinji Ikari is my favorite protagonist, but I can't help it but feel relatable to him. During this novel as well as the anime it almost feels like I am Shinji, I felt like I was betrayed. My feelings were betrayed. Shinji will always be the most unique protagonist I will ever see, because the protagonist is not the ideal version of himself, as if Evangelion is telling me that Shinji is the person you would never want to be. This is my review of Evangelion as a whole.

Asuka kriegt endlich ihren Schneid wieder und ich bin froh für sie. Was allerdings Ikari treibt... wird langsam echt sonderbar. Vorallem... Seine rechte Hand, der alte Professor, scheint ja über alles Bescheid zu wissen, findet dann aber trotzdem immer noch moralisch was auszusetzen an allem? Das verwirrt mich.

    A different enemy attacks, but can unit 02 deal with it? Shinji is still whingey at a crucial time with Gendo and Misato (who totally kicks ass.) Pretty amazing fight scenes and emotional devastation aplenty. Interesting to see the deviation from the anime series here.
