FelipeFritschF: Yeah, I agree. This book felt pretty pointless, except for the section with illustrated messages from different artists.

kuribo-04: Thanks for your kind words! I'll try to do another book review for next week or the week after. ^_^

robersora: Thank you! It's nice to be back. I think there are at least 50 books left to review, so typing out that many book titles is a bit daunting at the moment. However, what I can do is offer a mini preview by letting you know which books I am (tentatively) planning to review next! Since there is renewed interest in the New Theatrical Edition now that the first three movies are on Khara's YouTube channel, I was thinking of doing Evangelion Shin Gekijouban: Jo - Entry File 1, and then after that I could do Eva Extra 04 (the actual magazine, not the mobile app).

Thanks for your comments, everyone! :D

It's amazing how many Eva books exist.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...

Yeah, it's truly incredible that there are so many Evangelion books! I'd imagine that the number of Eva figurines and action figures is even larger, though. I wonder if there's an alternate universe where I collect Evangelion figures instead of books? I hope that alternate universe version of me has a lot more storage space! -o-;

Thankfully I only go for the figures I really like. But...the books are taking up lots of space. When I think about moving to a different place...oh boy lol.

I posted my sixty-ninth Evangelion book review today! This time, it's Eva Extra 04. This is the actual magazine, not the mobile app. So even if you already have the app, hopefully you will still enjoy seeing what the physical magazine is like, including its packaging and bonus goodies. ^_^

Did not know it came with those large cards. It's so cool looking. :)

Yeah, it has that amazing sense for aesthetic promotional material and packaging, I always adored about Evangelion. There was this interesting article with the guy responsible for the design language for the packaging of the Blu-Rays of NTE... I just can't remember the name and where I've read it tho... It was definitely a designer normally working outside the Anime industry... maybe Literary Eagle has a clue? : )

Ah, that sounds like an interesti g read. And yeah, sometimes the design of all the merch, books,
etc, feels like it could stand as its own as an aesthetic series of products.

kuribo-04: Yeah, the large cards and the packaging are pretty cool. The magazine is nice even without that extra stuff, but something about those extras really takes the whole thing to another level!

robersora: A lot of Evangelion stuff sure does have nifty packaging! Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with the article you're referring to. If you do happen to come across it again, please send the link my way! I'd love to see it. ^_^
