For those of you who say the anime is better and that the manga loses by far b/c of the simple minded plot, I don't know what to tell you..I have to entirely disagree...

The anime can't even be considered finished first of all..the ending was a disaster in the name of all anime.

Shini's personality is that of a crybaby going under an extreme case of psychological depression/confusion. I like anime that make you think and such but the anime took it a little too far. We don't understand anything about him at all in the anime...he pissed me off more than anything.

Asuka, well, she got her screentime. Although pushy and apparantly perverted minded or atleast what seems to be provocative, she was a decent character. I have nothing bad to say about her really with the exception of her cockiness at first.

Rei...we know nothing of her personality b/c the anime spent more time focusing on other things...all we know is she's quiet, solitary, a clone apparantly, and emotionless. Boring.

Tell me please how the anime is better?

The NGE anime is an amazing series. This manga seems to be on the path to assuming the alternative ending provided by EoE, which I do not mind at all.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I do not think that any manga artist/writers would be able to depict in art the depth the instrumentality project concluded the original NGE series. This is the reason I believe that for an ending to the manga, that the EoE ending would be best suited.

I believe the manga is better than the anime. I like the characters better, I think they are more believable and I like the relationship with Rei MUCH better ( Come one why would anyone like Asuka? @_@)

i love asuka-chan<3333333 so much>>she is awesome

oh yea>>>WHY IS ASUKA NOT THAT IMPORTANT!!!! nooooooooo.....
she is just like someone else said >> support>> *crying with tears!!!*
why, why, WHY!!!!! >>my mental problem smile

Spoiler (highlight to view)
i love the part when she tried to strangle shinji-kun cuz for some reason i felt that it was better than the one in the movie>>shinji-kun sounded too desperate in the movie>>like asuka-chan's true self which i liked but it kicked off shinji-kuns character>>i wish they showed more emotions toward shinjixasuka instead of rei tho. Like most of you know, asuka-chan and shinji-kun share the hedgehog syndrome and like most shounen, opposites attract. The hedgehog syndrome ppl are total opposites and if they overcome their barriers, then they would be in true love.

For the rei fans, i think that either you are the type of person who loves good endings or you are a big shoujo fan. why? because this story isnt meant to have a good ending>ex>>the EoE movie. SHinji-kun is a person w/ a mental problem xD and asuka has one too. Now the Shinjixrei fans, want shiniji-kun to recover by seeing the light that rei shows him and vice versa. However, first there is no way for them to get together and second, Kaji-san said that shinji isnt able to be loved anymore cuz he killed Toji and that means rei cant be with him. but why can asuka-chan? b/c she went through the same pain or worse than shinji-kun had gone through>>half dead stare... in hospital>>famous hospital scene>>that way it equals out a bit

Finally, b/c asuka-chan is just plain AWESOME

For the shinjixrei fans, i want to tell you that shinji doesnt love rei cuz when he saw her true form, he didnt come back to her... if rei wasnt that thingy, then he would have chosen her. unlike the movie/anime, shinji-kun doesnt show a crush on asuka-chan, but either its that he is desperate or he really does love her in the end when he puts a spotlight on her.

rei i seriously hate and the guy who loves shinji-kun

dont think Anno too godly
he didnt write the story
anime based on manga
yea anime better and this isnt a good signal
usually manga better than anime
if anno thinks he can make better story
he should write a new story.
your whole point wrong

Truthfully I can't choose whether if the anime is better or if the manga is better. I like the focus on Rei and Shinji's relationship...but I also dislike the lack of Asuka. Bleh, for me, choosing anime or manga is like choosing a favorite child, I love them both

agreed with anonymous, it has an "extreme" chance to become better than the anime and movie,

i'm glad that shinji emotional state is reduced, in the anime that was the only thing they mainly showed, a broken down shinji, this one has guts at least to almost hit his father (fanservice? i wish he connected).

if they showed him always depressed there wouldn't be even a point to read this manga, and kaworu is more of a badass than in the anime.

anyway i guess i'll wait for more scans smile

As I am the person that enjoys philosophical and psychological stuff more than a plain rather simple-minded plot, I enjoyed anime by far better... <--- kekekeke another way of saying I've no life and a real otaku. Pathetic.

I compared the manga with anime..And manga looses by far..Ofcourse the normal teenager that like more simpleminded plot than the symbols would enjoy this one...

Sadamoto has no talent at creatin g symbols that Anno had...Plainly - hes pathetic at creating angst and some philosophical stuff... But he can make characters more down to earth like (though their philsophical depth is reduced)...

As I am the person that enjoys philosophical and psychological stuff more than a plain rather simple-minded plot, I enjoyed anime by far better... Besides if yoiu are an Asuka fan you will get dissapointed as she turned into some additional charcter rather than being main one together with Rei adn Shinji....

Rei howver gets more time to develop so Rei fans will enjoy...Shinji is more like normal teenager thast why looks pretty plain here....

Overall...Compared with other mangas its still great (its NGE after all) but compared with anime it looses greatly... Even doujinshi RE-TAKE is far better here...

Less Shinji self-hate. It might as well be "nuff said" right there, but I may as well elaborate. I personally have grown to like the manga better over the anime. One of the reasons is the aforementioned. Some others are: Rei's emotional development, uniform art style, alternation from the anime storyline (like Asuka's introduction)...

Only one disappointment: I do wish that Sadamoto would get on and complete the darn manga series... and give it a nice, cohesive ending.
