The end is nigh for the Neon Genesis Evangelion-The Shinji Ikari Raising Project manga, which is getting ready to close out its English release with one final omnibus volume. Publisher Dark Horse shared the exclusive announcement with Crunchyroll News, and fans can look for Neon Genesis Evangelion-The Shinji Ikari Raising Project Omnibus Volume 6 to close out the saga on December 28, 2022.
The sixth omnibus collects volumes 16-18 of the series, which features story and art by Osamu Takahashi (Isuca). It’s currently up for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, local comic shops and bookstores for $24.99.
The most popular Evangelion spinoff ever returns to finish the story! While a school play starring Rei and Asuka as star-crossed lovers makes some ponder just where Shinji fits in, the question of whether he can make up his mind may become moot as SEELE makes their final bid to seize the Magi System with a ruthless scheme—taking Rei’s own memories hostage!
