Call it whatever you want; it's still two separate chapters.

:: Lights a small fire under Sadamoto:: Come on, before Rebuild 4.0 comes out on DVD in the States...

I just recently got (or started to get, since I could only find them on Amazon.com) the earlier tankobon, and I'm dreading running out of volumes before the rest of the chapters are released.

^ Read slowly. Though I don't get why anyone would want the manga to end...I'm kind of disappointed that Sadamoto's actually writing chapters now.

Hee, I'll do that; plus I'll also have the fun of comparing the manga with the anime and finding the spots where they contradict or complement each other. I like the character development in the manga, and where the facts don't clash with each other, I can't help fitting some of the manga details into the anime continuity (eg. things like Kajii's background, etc.)

Join the rest of us ... I remember picking up all 8 volumes 5+ years ago and thinking to myself "now, how did they end it in the manga?"

Stage 81 from Eva Mailing List. lol no gender for SoL.

Anuraag Agrawal
Guess Sadamoto decided to leave stage 80 at the miserable shortness of last
month and went with #81 this month, can still see a merging in the future
though when the full volume gets released. A bit more info here than EoE I
think, but nothing really major. I use "it" for Adam since I don't know nor
really care what gender the seeds of life/angels/big ugly monsterlike things might be :P

Stage 81: Chance Meeting Part 2

Misato: Shinji, I'm going to tell you everything I found out.
*Shinji looking away disheartenedly*
Misato: Well, you're going to listen whether you like it or not. In the
past, an astral body crashed into this planet together with a seed of life.
That was First Impact (Giant Impact*). Turning into space-dust, it
eventually formed the moon, but deep underground, it left behind the seed of
life, Lillith. At the same time, Earth itself carried in it the seed of
life, Adam. That was the name written in Seele's Secret Dead Sea Scrolls.
Adam gave birth to twelve angels including itself. Lillith likewise gave
birth to one angel. Shinji, we humans are actually the thirteenth angel
that should never have been born onto this planet. The Second Impact of 15
years ago was brought about by humans. But that was in order to shrink Adam
down into an embryo before the other angels awakened in order to delay and
minimize the destruction of the blast. The other angels were another
possibility for a mankind with a different shape than us humans. The angels
aimed for the geofront in order to merge with Lillith in the place of the
lost Adam so they could destroy all life and remain on the planet as the
sole new species. You pilots used the Evas to defeat the angels and protect
humanity. But Seele and your father are still striving for Third Impact.
Destroy the last angel, humanity, and evolve into a new life form, that is
the Human Instrumentality Project. Yet, it seems that Seele's and your
father's final goals differ somehow. Eva holds the key to human
instrumentality. Shinji, if you don't move, humanity has no choice but to
be destroyed.
Radio: Eva-02 activated.
*Misato startled*
Radio: Asuka is unharmed. She's alive. She's currently facing off with the
SJSDF in the middle of the artifical lake.
Misato: Asuka is...!
*Shinji, having been looking down the entire time finally looks up*
Soldier: Fire! Fire!
Maya: Asuka, counterattack!
*Asuka uses a battleship to deflect missiles and throws it at the SJSDF
soldiers*

Scene: Dreamworld in Asuka's head
Asuka (mind): There's a dream that I've seen over and over who knows how
many times. I went on a picnic with Mama when I was small. A dream of a
sunflower field.
Kyoko (Asuka's mom): Asuka, hold on to mama.
Asuka (mind): Mama said that as she disappeared into the sunflower field.
Little Asuka: Mama! Wait! Mama! Mama! Where are you?!
Asuka (mind): I was surrounded by tall sunflowers. I could never find Mama.

Scene: Battlefield, missiles fly at Eva-02 but are dodged gracefully
(inhumanly?)
Asuka (mind): Sorry, Mama, for not finding you. You were here all along.
You were here all along looking over me.
*Eva-02 blocks and detonates two big missiles with its AT Field*
Asuka: Mama, I know what the AT field stands for now. Back then, that
wasn't the real Mama. Mama, you've been protecting me all along.

*: Sadamoto added the romanization Giant Impact next to the katakana
(Japanese) for First Impact. I'm guessing he was going for something along
the lines of the Great War which was only called that until there was a
second one and it became World War I.

I've managed to acquire most of the tankobon: I had a hell of a time finding Vol. 9 on Amazon (except for the original edition in Japanese), but thankfully I located it on a bargain books site and it's now in the mail. I've read up to Vol 8, but am waiting on reading 10, until 9 finally arrives.

Interesting stage. I'm now wondering that since Sadamoto is churning out new chapters on a monthly basis (for the moment), is it worth making this thread a sticky again?

Stage 82 is out according to EML. Mostly fighting with little dialouge: the Eva series arrives and Asuka looks scared.

Maybe we'll get to Misato's death in another year or two. :yippee:

He shuddered a bit, remembering the somewhat creepy level of detail Kaji had gone into, while rubbing a watermelon in a disturbingly sexual way.

That was fun to talk about at the Eva Panel.

Maybe by "Birth of itself" they mean something like a sponge, how it reproduces itself.
