“There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.” - Frank Herbert
The Third Impact is complete, the enemies of humanity have won, and the armageddon has engulfed the world. Or has it? Shinji awakens in the aftermath of fighting the twelfth Angel, and feels the twelfth hour creeping upon him. Believed to be gifted with a vision of future, he gets in the robot determined to fix the mistakes of his past to save our future before time, or his sanity runs out. All the while, things take a much different turn, and the forces of evil threaten the preservation of the human race. Is Shinji the key to the salvation of humanity? Will NERV be able to cancel the apocalypse? Or is it all utterly inevitable?
-Out of all the stories I’ve read, Re-Take is not only my favorite ending to Evangelion, but one of my all time favorite mangas. What makes this comic special is that it’s self aware that it’s an alternative ending as explained in the story.
-A unique thing about the comic, is that the narrative shifts from Shinji to Asuka, both of whom excel in character development and emotional growth, which is an unmatched milestone in fan service.
-This masterpiece of fan work will make any Evangelion fan exhilarated and breathless. If End of Evangelion has made you feel tumbling down, Re-Take will help you put yourself back together.
The arc comes full circle in EVANGELION RE-TAKE, now available. (For mature and adult audiences only!)
And for those who completed Re-Take, the story Re-Take: After is released. It is both a heart aching and heart warming extended epilogue in the aftermath of the acclaimed Doujinshi.
Throughout my life, I’ve tried to fit in with the norm. Now I’m embracing the fact that I am a full fledged bohemian. Who said standing out has to remain a bad thing?
