And it's done. Incredibly rushed at the end (some plot threads getting resolved in a panel or so), as one might have expected, given where we were when the "3 chapters left" dropped.

On balance, slightly better at the conclusion than the anime, if only because it simply omitted most of the new elements that appeared in the closing episodes.

Welp, it's something at least
Why don't you save the Princess next time instead of being such a baby? She would love it and maybe you could get a sweet kiss. ~ sadly not Mari in Q (Joseki)

What about titty-ten? ~ Reichu

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu

Read it now. By far the quickest a chapter has ever been translated, lol.
Yeah, the ending was kinda rushed, but still a lot better than the garbage the anime presented us with - I like what they tried to do, but somewhere down the line they seriously miscalculated how much time they'd have left.

Also some sort of epilogue would have been nice, I guess

From what I read, "Code000" wanted to axe the manga at chapter 32, but Yabuki managed to negotiate a few extra chapters to get some kind of conclusion. Compared with the usual axing, this was better than we might have had.

Okay that explains a lot
