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 . . .
But really, what about that doesn't sound fun? Evangelion: Campus Apocalypse is a four volume release, and Dark Horse expects to ship the first volume August 2010. Granted, I may be an alternate reality junkie, but is anyone else excited for this one?
Taking place at NERV Foundation Academy, Shinji stumbles into a struggle for the fate of humanity. Angels are beings after these "cores," and humans can use the cores to manifest their Evas. For instance, Shinji's Eva takes the form of a gun. Expect more person to person pew pew, and very little giant robot. Oh, and expect plenty of romantic subplots, as the characters attempt to balance their school life with their private attempts to save the world. Oh, and... headmaster Gendo?!?!
