    This is a review of the comic Volume 1 of "The Shinji Ikari Raising Project" published by Dark Horse Comics. Not to be confused with Sadamoto Yushiyuki's "Neon Genesis Evangelion" published by VIZ Media, or Fumino Hayashi's "Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days" published by ADV Manga.Here are liner notes on the back cover of Volume 1 of "The Shinji Ikari Raising Project," which goes like this: "Based on the alternate world glimpsed in the final episode of the famous `Neon Genesis Evangelion' TV series, `The Shinji Ikari Raising Project' explores Evangelion's famous characters through love, comedy, and a new set of mysteries!"Well, in short, this is a ROMANTIC COMEDY based on the main characters of the Evangelion franchise, Rei, Asuka, and Shinji. Believe me or not, this comic delivers the goods.[STORY] Shinji Ikari is an ordinary junior high school student living with his father Gendo and mother Yui, both working for "Artificial Evolution Lab." Shinji's ordinary life changes dramatically, however, when a beautiful, mysterious girl Rei Ayanami moved to his school in New Tokyo-3 and starts to live with his family. Naturally, Shinji's friend since childhood, strong-willed girl Asuka Langley Shoryu is not very happy about that.Unlike the original anime, Shinji is not a boy troubled by his relation with his distant father. Like any traditional romantic comedy set in school, he is a boy attracted to two totally different types of girls. This is a time-tested formula for setting up comedy and romance, if not very original. And it works pretty well with these two well-drawn characters, Asuka and Rei. The comic doesn't forget that it is originally a sci-fi drama. It contains a scene of Ayanami wearing plug suit and one failed experiment.Those who have not seen the original TV series can enjoy the comic as stand-alone series, though they might miss most of the sly in-jokes (Shinji's bearded father Gendo doesn't speak much because ... he is now a husband dominated by his loving and ever-smiling wife Yui). Jokes are not overused and the story keeps a nice, swift pace, following the romantic triangle of Shinji, Asuka, and Rei, and its consequences that are often funny.[ART] Though this is the first major work (his first tankobon book), Osamu Takahashi did a very good job with nice art (especially that of Rei Ayanami), which looks faithful to original character designs by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. The comic's art sometimes become slightly "fan servicey," but it is not too explicit or excessive. The book also has very funny bonus pages.The English version comic has the same front/back cover art and four color pages. It also comes with the 7-page afterword from the editor of the English version.Original "The Shinji Ikari Raising Project" has been serialized in "Monthly Shônen Ace" published by Kadokawa Shoten since June, 2005. The comic, illustrated by Osamu Takahashi, is inspired by one of the storylines in the game of the same name released in 2004. The first volume of the series was published in May, 2006 and eight tankobon books have already been released in Japan so far. I hope that Dark Horse will keep on publishing the series."The Shinji Ikari Raising Project" is one of the several spin-off comics that was created after the phenomenal success of the Evangelion series, and is one of the better projects. Enjoy it.

    Dark Horse is coming out with omnibus editions of this series this summer and I wanted to try it before I pre-ordered. I was aware this was going to be shojo but I am a lot more pleased with it than I thought I would be. Of course, the story is set before the original series and takes many liberties with continuity to present itself as a possible alternate reality to the one that happened. I'm not sure I'd call it shojo at this point as it is a strange mix of shojo and shonen slice of life school stories. Lots of romantic comedy as expected, but lots of teen boy sex talk and hi-jinx too. What really surprised me and won me over was that the science fiction theme is very much there. All the kids' parents work for Eva, Rei is working for them and by the end of this volume everyone has visited the lab. I really enjoyed the characters as I already knew them quite well and even though their history has been changed their personalities are true to form. I must say I look forward to continuing on with this series through the upcoming omnibus editions.

    The previous volumes seemed to be getting too bogged down in over-the-top fanservice that I was beginning to fear for the future of this series. But this volume seems to have sobered up from the last couple of volumes' tired "Trip/fall/peek-a-boob" routine, which is great. There's still plenty of fanservice to go around, though it's much more balanced.The story is beginning to push itself into the middle of things more (in vol. 13 especially), which the series definitely needed. I finished the volume eager to find out how the main trio's new situation will figure out.But really, 5 stars for the true star of the manga, Gendo "Based God" Ikari. With lines like "Where are my glasses? I can't be a meganekko without my glasses." you just keep coming back for more of the man.
