In Italy Shinji Ikari Raising Project #17 will be out in March 2016. We've reached Japanese edition...
Still no news from Japan about tankobon #18 (it was said #18 would be out in summer 2015...)

It's not like they would've cancelled Vol 18, right? That would just be silly.

Alright, alright! Almost done...
The final chapter will be published on Shonen Ace (April issue, out in February)!
Obviously there are no news about the 18th tankobon...

Shirtpunch had a promo where they were throwing in vol. 1 with all shirt orders a couple weeks ago, which coincided with Rei and Asuka shirt designs. My order came in last week but haven't read it yet.

So I actually had a day off & decided to give this manga a whirl.
The art is VERY well done & I can imagine Hideaki Anno looked at this while writing 'You Can (Not) Advance' & went "Okay, if this is what the fans want let's give it to them..... for now". But, the whole thing is tediously repetitive & (I hate the word) kinda rapey.

I can buy Shinji being a klutz & falling over but his hands & face get EVERYWHERE.


It's okay in the end. I'd be curious to see hear how it all ends.

It's kind of like it, but of course it has more comedy and more fan service (like any other school life - slice of life manga),
SPOILER: Show
but one thing is that the protagonist of girlfriend of steel (i don't remember her name) appears in this manga.

I tried really hard to read this manga, I just couldn't get on with it I think the over use of fan service just got on my nerves somewhat. So if you really like fan service then this is right up your street, I also couldn't get on with Angelic Days, I just found it kind of boring. The only manga I liked outside the AU was Campus Apocalypse and from what I've heard Dark Horse have licensed another AU Evangelion series.

Oh, how I love this lighthearted take on Evangelion by giving us a few of those pairings we all read and write about.

Shinji and every ship! Rei and Asuka working together to block anyone else from having a shot with Shinji (sorry Mana and Kaworu).
Yui and Kyoko being there also makes it fun, with Yui slapping Gendo for being a pervert, and Kyoko being like a cat and napping all the time (plus her wanting Asuka and Shinji to get married and have kids is awesome!) Shinji and Asuka actually being friends is nice, and seeing the conflict in Asuka as she treis to admit to herself she actually likes (or loves) Shinji is probably the funniest thing ever.

Sure the fanservice is over the top ridiculous (it has more nudity then Wanna be the Strongest in the World [yeah, google that], and it exemplifies Rule 34) which makes it difficult to read outside the house, but the story is still enjoyable, and I can't wait to read the rest of it.

Shinji just needs to stop being a super pervert and landing in every girl's crotch. (I'm sorry!) Bro, learn how to walk, and then ask the girl out on a date first, have some dinner, don't try to steal third base! And poor Rei seems to bear the brunt of his accidents, followed of course by Asuka.

Besides all the nudity, its still a good manga

I just got the first Shinji Ikari Raising Project omnibus volume, and I'm right in the middle of part that you cite as homophobic. I suppose it could be read that way, but it's not mean-spirited. Really, all that's going on here is Asuka being wildly jealous about what appears to be a BL situation developing between Shinji and Kaworu. But remember, previously she was just as jealous of Rei. Even though she's always denying that it's 'not like that' between her and Shinji, it really is.

The lack of news made me curious, so I purchased a copy from BookWalker.

SPOILER: Show
It looks like something happens to Rei during an Eva test and it's up to Shinji and Asuka to save her. Seele is involved somehow. After they get Rei back, her memories seem muddled for a while, but she gets them back in pretty quick order with everyone's help.

As for the ships, it looks like that maintains the status quo and the series ends on a note of friendship all around. Last Stage just has Shinji, Rei, Asuka, Mana, Toji Kensuke and Hikari hanging out together. Shinji faceplants into boobs, of course.


Here are the last couple pages if anyone's curious:

Gah. If I would've invested proper time and energy into that manga instead of a passing interest, I would've been pretty disappointed by the ending (I mean, 18 volumes?!).

Obviously this only makes sense in the light of the original (and it leaving you with a craving for these characters doing silly highschool au stuff) & isn't meant to be read in one shot but more as a 'light snack' now and then.

There's the "fumigating Misatos room" chapter that started harmlessly enough but gave us a random Yuri scene...

The author certainly must have a serious face sitting/panty fetish, I guess you just have to filter tit or read it in the right mood.

I appreciate that Rei is still vaguely an introvert in this despite all the silly. See, fanfic writers? Not that hard.

Also, aparently Hikari and Asuka like Sakura:
SPOILER: Show

Though the "Maybe you'll meet her one day" sounds sinister in the light of Q.

Though it's srange/interesting to see Yui acting as NERV's leader in the semi-plotty characters, Kyoko being around, Rei and Asuka being familiar with Yui & Gendo and referring to them as 'auntie' and 'uncle'. There IS a sense of 'what could have been' somewhere in there.
