The plot and interactions so far are fantastic as are the original characters you've brought into it. Looking forward to catching up with it fully :)


THANK YOU and welcome to the comic! Thanks for taking the time to let me know here and at S.J.! The art is still WAY behind most other doujins and webcomics, but I like to think the plot and script make it worth reading!

I start work on Chapter 19 this week.

Ooh, a KawoRei chapter! I've been looking forward to this. I have a huge soft spot for KawoRei. :heart:

Anyway, here are some thoughts...

SPOILER: Show
Although it wasn't as thrilling or suspenseful as some of the earlier chapters of this story (as you said in the notes at the end, most of us probably knew it was going to go this way), it was still nice to see progress in Rei and Kaworu's relationship.

Also, the part with Kaworu going to Asuka for advice was quite amusing... the art during that scene was cute, and I chuckled at Kaworu saying "Shinji didn't do it right, did he?" and Asuka's reaction to that. (And gosh, Asuka sure is adorable in a sailor top!)

By the way, I'm really, really glad you didn't go with the idea of Saburo killing himself. I'm not a fan of love triangles getting resolved with one of the people dying... it seems lazy at best, and downright callous at worst.

Lastly, that image of Kaworu and Rei embracing (056.png in the NSFW version) was just... mmm, yes. More KawoRei goodness like that, please!

Congratulations on completing another chapter! :D

No problem, I always like to leave comments on peoples work when I read them to let them know my thoughts. I know how important any sort of feedback can be myself so I always try to make sure I give it.

Looking forward to seeing Chapter 19 it when it is out :)

Umm... >tap< >tap< Hello..?

Lately I've been feeling like EVA-303 really needs to get going again, and I'm preparing to kick start things sometime this week. As a part of that, I just thought I'd stop by again, clean out the cobwebs and see who all is still hanging around Evageeks?

I can think of a lot of friends I made around here who were great at giving input and I'm hoping at least many of them are still around.


Sooo... let's see about getting this party going again. :bigeyes:

I've recently re-read your comic and while it still holds as a favorite of Eva fanwork, i found the scenes involving the test suit from Ha to be rather unnecessary

THANK YOU EVERYONE! That was a quick response. My plan for reviving EVA-303 centers around an evening this week (or eveningS) that I am setting aside to immerse myself in Evangelion. Rewatching some important episodes, watching some funny fandubs (Re-Death comes to mind), and some AMVs. Listening to some of the music that I used to listen to while producing the comic, and re-reading some of EVA-303 as well as revisiting the TVtropes page.

Do you mean the see-thru test suit from Rebuild 2.0 that appeared briefly in my Chapter 6? If so, then I actually agree (and agreed) with you, which is why it disappeared so quickly from the webcomic. I ended up putting it in there before I gave myself a chance to think better of it. My bad. Besides- it gave me a chance to design something original.

Trust me, I'm also on the band-wagon for Eva 303. It's one of my favorite Asuka/Shinji fics that actually has a happy outcome for their relationship. :)

And I would be reading it more and more often GrummanCat, but your site is blocked on my Campus, so I'm kind of stuck. :cringe:

Still, ANY addition is a huge welcome for me. :)

Really looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

I have really liked the little fan-servicy bits you've uploaded in between the wait too.

It's one of the few things around for new AsuShin art too, don't really see that much being produced.

I've started learning to draw but I think it'll be some time before I produce anything decent, although I will say 303 is one of the reasons why i started wanting to learn.

I actually need to add it to my list of recommended fics on my AsuShin blog on Tumblr

GREAT to see you again, Bagheera!

Unfortunately, the (little) work I did on Chapter 19 was lost in the death of a laptop, but it's almost a blessing. It was only one scene scripted and some doodles. I'm ready to come back at it fresh.

I'm LITERALLY in the middle of my Evangelion 'immersion party' right now. It's a mixture of watching things and scribbling thoughts down, and I think I've had a bit of an epiphany. I think I've found my spark plug for getting the comic going again and it's in a really unusual place- The 'Old Men'. :cringe:

For years, the old men (Gendo, Hardek, Fuyutski, etc.) have been my bane. No cute girls, no sexy scenes, no one cares, right?

Well I have already thought that one of my biggest problems with Volume 3 so far is the lack of focus on the serious stuff behind EVA-303- the Seele/Nerv stuff. Ever since Shinji
SPOILER: Show
proposed to Asuka
, has there been a SINGLE Gendo scene?? :facepalm:

Now with Chapter 19 unfolding, a satisfying scene between Fuyutski and Senator Hardek is unfolding as well as a Gendo/Yui scene. While there is an important scene for the EVA pilots (they actually arrive on the aircraft carrier in this chapter), it looks to be mostly a 'Old Men' chapter.


...And I think I couldn't be happier. :w00: As much fun as I had in Vegas, it wasn't healthy to the overall comic. It's time to remind people why all of this is happening in the first place.

I feel like taking a long walk after the kids go to sleep tonight and thinking up a script for Hardek/Fuyutski as well as Gendo/Yui.


This may be a short chapter, but for those of you missing the EVA-303 back story, it should feel pretty good!

I think sometimes something like that can benefit you. Losing work always sucks but it allows you to come back at it fresh and improve it.

I like the sound of what you're planning, it'll be nice to see a focus on some of the serious stuff behind the story and give more a glimpse into SEELE/NERV.

Haha. I think Rits was just spending his money (or worse! The TAXPAYER'S money!!!!)

I have proofread the first scenes between Fuyutski and Senator Hardek and between Gendo and Fuyu. They are giving me that old feeling I got when I wrote something I really liked. Feeling good so far!

Just a line to let you guys know that the first scene is done and pages assembled. So far, the new chapter is up to 10 pages long. I leave for Japan a week from tomorrow, but I'm bringing my laptop with me so production can continue, minus the ability to scan pages. But hey- it is officially coming together! :D
