I just came back from Barnes and Noble with Der Mond. The only real reason I got it is because it was Eva related. I almost got volume one of Campus Apocalypse, even though it doesn't sound the least bit interesting to me.

It has Asuka in a BLACK UNIFORM WITH A FUCKING WHIP

I find that to be very interesting, I don´t know about you though.

Pretty much this. It's worth looking into the first volume, at least (my own typical way of testing new manga).

The artwork is gorgeous. The plot is crap.

Stick with the manga (at least read it at Barnes and Noble if you don't feel like buying it) if you're the tiniest bit interested in it. While the ending in volume 4 is somewhat rushed, everything that needs to be wrapped up, is wrapped up.

New on the Gainax Side Shop this weekend are three You Can (Not) Advance 3D Mousepads - three as in one featuring Rei, one featuring Asuka and another featuring Mari. They look pretty nifty, it's a shame Gainax ignored including Shinji in this latest milking of the franchise as I imagine I'd prefer a Shinji mousepad.

Included below is a .gif sample of the mousepads' 3D effect and seperate photos each of the mousepads as I found them on the site.

It's worth mentioning that I don't think the Campus Apocalypse manga was very popular in Japan. I had to go through a few stores in Akihabara before finding a copy of 4 at Gamers, who host a brand store for Campus Apocalypse's publisher.

Why buy a fork when you can buy the real thing?

I wonder if SpearofLonginus has seen this yet...

For those of us who don't live in Japan, how might we get these? Any options beyond finding someone in the area who can help us out?
