There's no proper index in the back, but here are the contents for each volume if that helps at all:
Volume 1:

Volume 2:

Now that you mention it, yeah, none of Utatane's art is present here. It's 100% Yamashita. I didn't even realize that. I get the feeling a fair bit of his chapter art was omitted too but I'd have to do a direct comparison to be sure.

It just hit me: the character art in the back of volume 1 actually shows us what Shinji's new plugsuit looks like! It's just a black and white illustration, but hey, it's something. :tongue:

Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Comparing to the monthly releases, a lot of the first part seems to have been combined into just 4 chapters for the first book.

2nd book it seems you get 13 monthly chapters rearranged into 11 in the book with chapters titles actually matching most of the time.

Overall it appears to cover up to 2010 October monthly, so 34 out of 64 so just about half because there was a transition to a larger format for the magazine with later issues having bigger pages with more stuff. We're looking at two more books minimum then.

Next week needs to hurry up, I want my copies :(

Saving Shinji's plugsuit for the compilations is kinda hilarious.

Ah, so I wasn't the only one wondering what happened to Hiroyuki Utatane's drawings. Anyway, I'm glad that all the chapters of ANIMA are finally getting collected in book format, although I was also disappointed that not all of the illustrations were printed in full color. I wrote a review of Evangelion ANIMA 1 that includes a few scans, in case anyone is interested. I made this new post for it on my book review thread.

I have Evangelion ANIMA 2 as well, but I haven't had a chance to write a review for it yet. -o-;

DHL man brought me my books, and they're very lovely. I really wish Yamashita's handwriting was more legible. The notes on the rough sketch of illustration under the dust jacket would be nice if I could decipher them. But then again my Japanese is still incredibly weak.

I'm really curious about how much of reediting was done of the first part. When it was published in the magazine it had all these subtitles and jumped back and forth between scenes. That was first reedited when it was published in the Anima Visual Book. That now makes up the first half of the first book. The 2nd half I just can't seem to match up to any of the monthly chapters with my weak skills. The 2nd book on the other hand matches up quite closely. I guess the delay with publication might have been reediting and potentially rewriting that early stuff to match the style of the later work?

There is a way to find the original scans of Evangelion Anima of the Dengeki Hobby Magazine? I tried to find it on the forums, reddit and other pages and I didn´t find anything. I've just ordered the two books from Amazon.co.jp, but these two only covers the first half of the story, isn't it? are the scans available elsewhere, or a translation?. Thanks for the info!!

Has anyone done a you tube video on this? As I have yet to find one as I wanted to see what both volumes are like inside before buying them ^_^
