Um, that's just the normal edition - the Limited Edition is still being published on 20th November, as always stated, so it's out any hour now.

Sometimes CDJapan ships early to arrange (domestic) arrival on the due day, and this happened with my vol13, but my order hasn't shipped early this time - Boo.

Gendo'sPapa was asking about the normal edition, yes. :nod: There were worries for awhile it wouldn't be released stateside until February.

Viz itself still says Feb 10; but Amazon UK still says Dec 4. It'll ship when it ships...

Huh? See my post above. Viz told me themselves it'll be November 25th since the regular edition is 26th in Japan: https://forum.evageeks.org/post/762001/Evangelion-Manga-Final-Volume-out-November-25/#762001

No announcement about a German release yet. Seems like I will have to catch up with the remaining (English) volumes of the Shinji Ikari Raising Project for the time being. :lol:

Coming up, a coordinated release! After all, that's pretty much what happened with vol13 and Q's original release.

Gotta love that optimistic! :asuka_thumbsup: Funny how it'd be hopefully! reversing a Japanese coordinated release (3.33/Vol 13) to a Stateside release (...3.33.../Vol 14).

It’s Phase Two of the State-Side Eva Curse, with each “Phase” also being identified as an “Impact.”

Phase One was everything going out of print starting with the latest installments (Vol. 9, Manga Ent.’s D&R/EoE releases) and then spreading to the works previous to that (ADV’s NGE release). Phase Two of the State-Side Eva Curse is everything being delayed. (3.33, Vol. 14.)

Phase Three will be Eva Shin literally causing Human Instrumentality through an Impact when it premieres in Japan and spreads throughout the world in mere minutes. You’ll know when Eva Shin is released by the joyous screams of a terrified humanity fast approaching you, before you join them in feverish nonexistence.

As for the reasons of this delay, it might be to include the 28 pages of heavily-awesome spoiler materials.

But I don't wanna be LCL :crybaby:

I'm making sure things are spoiler-tagged accordingly in that 28-page new manga extra thread, but be sure to stay safe if you don't want spoilers!

In Japantown on Sunday to get my copy of the limited ver. I figure get the regular JP version used if I really want it or wait til I head back and not pay 50% markup for something I can't read and am not in a rush to get.

My guess is that it is based on this post made by TM Bounty Hunter a few months ago. Perhaps they don't have the rights to the extra stage and have to through the process to get it. Another possible theory is that there's going to be some material exclusive to the US edition (for example, something similar to Carl Horn's essays from previous volumes) and they need to clear everything with Kadokawa before release.

I figured it was something like that myself (at the very least, perhaps Carl will write some thoughts in the final volume--since he couldn't for Vol 13). I just find it frustrating as a (potential) customer.

Hopefully Premium Edition info will be in the usual places tomorrow (19th in States is 20th in Japan).


Yes, younger Gendo (related to the 28 page extra stage)
In every nation which has eva volumes split in two halves, first half of volume 14 (aka evangelion 27) has the "Shinji under the snowfall" cover, sencond half (aka eva 28) has the "gendo and pilots" cover.
I've seen this also in the Brazilian edition: http://evangelionbr.com/2014/11/13/jbc-divulga-capa-do-volume-27-meio-tanko/

The idea of some English-only extras is appealing; but given how books are made in pretty standardised numbers of pages, it might be rather hard to bring about.

That seems the wrong way round, logically.
