If you have anything more than a passing familiarity with the storyline of NGE, the cover image here has probably alerted you that this is a decidedly different story. Rei is extroverted and upbeat. Shinji and Asuka are childhood friends. And the Evangelions don't appear until the end of the second volume.

I've been reading this and the regular NGE manga at the same time, which certainly does a trick on the plot-following center of the brain. I think I definitely prefer this version of the NGE story. For one thing, it's only four volumes, which is an important factor when volumes cost as much as they do. And it's nice to see the story not stacking the deck against the EVA pilots, for a change.

Recommendation: Buy it if you're familiar with the series.
