So, Evangelion Gakuen Datenroku. Who the hell had the genius idea of turning Evangelion into generic shonen pseudo-Bleach pseudo-Dragonball mango? Because I kinda like it. Anyone know how far along the series is? I only found 4 chapters so far.
Picture related cause it's shit like this that makes me go "lul wut"
It's a shoujo.
What a faggoty ass gun. Angel wings engravings?
Huh? How so? I'm not seeing any tranformation scenes, so far there's NO "WE R FIGHTAN FOR LOVE" scenes, nothing that would indicate that this is shoujo to me, besides really really pretty people. And if shoujo = pretty people, then 80% of anime is shoujo it seems.
You wouldn't be saying this if it was Spike's gun.
SUMMON YOUR PERSONA SHINJI.
It is shoujo because it is published in a shoujo magazine (I think it's Asuka)
Because it's published in Asuka, a shoujo anthology. It doesn't matter what contents of the story itself has, it matters what anthology it's published in.
Same reason why Potemayo is a seinen title, because it's published in a seinen anthology.
That's like saying Kaiji's shonen cause it's published in a shonen mag. I prefer to categorize by content not who publishes.
It's a reimaging of NGE. Shit was done before. If you don't like it, don't read it.
Kaiji /is/ Shounen. fag lol.
YOU KNOW WHATS ALSO SHOUNEN. MONSTER AND 20TH CENTURY BOYS
Fortunately for you, Kaiji is seinen because it's published in Young Magazine, which is a seinen anthology.
It doesn't matter what you think, it doesn't change the fact this certain title is shoujo, seinen, shoujo or josei, it's just a demographic.
To give Asuka and Zero-Sum some credit, they usually do stuff that's not standard shoujo fare. They usually have action titles in their anthology.
And there's nothing wrong with liking shoujo anyway.
Nope, both are seinen. Both were published in seinen anthologies.
If it's in a shonen magasine, it's shonen, elitist faggot.
Sage for "Baww, Kaiji is Shonen, I must hate it"
If EGD is shounen I think it'd be fucking awesome. Last I checked shonens tend not to have oussy's as lead characters therefore shinji would be more "courageous".
SO where are the mechs?
I think he was being sarcastic...
they went a different route this time no mechs just weapons...
Shinji doesn't seem to be AS pussy in this version. He just seems like a normal student guy. Aka: In over his head. I give it 2 volumes before Shinji's dual-wielding fag-guns, saving the day, deep-dicking Asuka/Rei/Kaworu.
HAY GUISE, LET'S ARGUE OVER WHICH DEMOGRAPHIC OUR FAVORIT ANIMUS ARE TARGETED TOWARD! AGAIN.
Everyone's "Evas" are the weapons they summon.
Its kind of like Bleach/Busuou Renkin where everyone has a weapon specific to them.
As I recall Rei's is the Lance of Longinas and Shinji summons a gun. I forgot what Kaworu had, I think it was some kind of sword/blade.
IS IT A KEYBLADE? CAUSE THAT WOULD BE KEKAKOI
Great, another case of dickless tight pants.
In before dick shop and someone figuring out where that bulge came from.
Harem End! Best End!
>>oussy's as lead characters therefore shinji would be more "courageous".
Whut? Have you been reading shounen lately? At least 60% of shounen leads are pussies. I'm not even counting the shounen romance leads.
I like it this shit I don´t know for what
That was the best thread ever
LACKS TRIGGER DISCIPLINE. I DO NOT LIKE IT. >:C
You forgot Asuka's whip...
/k/ has spoken, guys.
gb2/k/ now, /k/omrade.
Because it looks cool?
That and it got Kaworu as a more prominent character are the reasons I'm reading it.
Only 4 chapter in english I don´t know If there are more in RAWS
Luffy isn't a pussy, Naruto isn't a pussy, ichigo isn't a pussy and they're like the epitome of shonen cliche. All these guys won't heistate to fight or kill someone if there is enough reason, if shinji would be more like them it would help his image on /a/ a bit.
SO that means the angels are smaller more human like?
The character designs are better. Goddamnnit I hated there school uniforms in the original. But do they get their plug suits?
There is more to shounen than the fucking Big Three, my god.
Holy fucking shit thats awesome.
There is a 5th chapter out there somewhere and if I remember this shit is bi-monthly...
I doubt it, the whole reason for the plugsuits were for the mecha EVAs, so I doubt they would be around for this AU version.
And yes, the uniforms are much, much better in Datenroku than the original series. I would kill to wear Shinji's uniform or Kaworu's.
The angels are spirits that take over human bodies, they are looking for these balls that support the universe from some life tree, if they gather all the balls the universe dies or some shit, just read the mango, theres like 4 chapters.
You just want to see Kaworu naked don't you.
Yeah. Don't forget the under-rated shonen like uh...... Baki the Grappler or Generic Shonen Sports title #5! OR HOW ABOUT OBSCURE BOARD GAME ANIME? I LOVE OBSCURE BOARD GAME ANIME!
This is an angel, they just take over bodies now.
I know, all I pointed out was that OP,Naruto,Bleach all have the shonen male archetype and thats mostly the "FIGHT FOR YOUR FRIENDS LOL" type, if shinji follows that he'd be a better character than the "WATCH ASUKA DIE WHILE ROCKING LIKE A FUCKING BABY"
Actually you are right he isn't afraid to fight...
and angel take the bodies of humans to do their dirty work...
NO. I just want to wear his clothes.
There is nothing sexual about that. Nothing!
... okay, I kinda want to see Kaworu naked, but it's normal, right? ...Right?
Well thats better one of the gripes I had about the original was that the monsters where so...unfathomable. I just couldn't get their motives for wrecking shit. So do they have emotions? and did they explain their origin?
Go is deeper than chess.
When he dose shit like this...yea...
Panty shot? Brb downloading now.
I can rest safe in the knowledge that in every Eva incarnation ever to exist Asuka will be a bitch to some extent
Yea they show emotion like fear, anger, shock, etc...has for their origins still an unknown...
Gainex pulls a 180 on us. Reis the bitch, asuka is the clone and shinji is sexy.
Too much change too fast...not gonna happen...
Thanks anon, you've been helpful.
Shinji is ALWAYS sexy. Shut your whore mouth
The Angels are sort of explained in the endless amounts of superfluous material.
Essentially, an ancient creator race flew around depositing white and black eggs. From the white eggs, emerged the angels, creatures with crazy appearances and crazy powers. From a religious point of view, consider these creatures as ones who ate the fruit of the Tree of Life.
Humanity comes out of black eggs and does human type things. Supposedly, they have the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge.
There weren't supposed to be two eggs on the same planet because it causes the angels and humans to instinctively fight against one another. Earth was a white egg planet, and there was another planet that had a black egg. The two planets collided, leaving behind a fraction of the black egg while the rest of it became the moon.
Thus, Angels hate humans and humans hate Angels. Can't help it. They want to be the sole race on the planet. The angels think that the humans have Adam. So, they continually try to rescue their leader in order to wipe them all out. Perhaps it would cause humans to be goo. Who knows.
Instrumentality was a Gendo/SEELE concocted plans. The angels really aren't a part of it at all.
Yeah, when I found this out, Evangelion actually made sense. Le gasp.
took you long enough...
I mean, jesus, I know Asuka is tsundere for Shinji but she doesn't have to make it that obvious.
Well, maybe Shinjiko, but normal Shinji...
I dunno how the author managed it, but they made Asuka sexier.
I love this series.
STUPID SEXY SHINJI
little girl shinji "saved" is an angel, (it was her at feild not his) and this is going to cause the first beig moral delimma in the manga
must be the artwork...
>>10042664 little girl shinji "saved" is an angel, (it was her at feild not his) and this is going to cause the first beig moral delimma in the manga
Show Shinji fuck an angel? Yes, No?
NOOOOO!!!! NOT THE LOLI! ;_;
Unless he tapped Rei or Kaworu, my guess would have to be no.
It'd be interesting if they appeared in their new outfits in some scenes in the upcoming Rebuild Movies.
Evangelion Gakuen Datenroku fukken rlz!!!
generic shounen my balls!!!!
dont worry rei will ice her, So no one has to cry except shinji
3/10. Show more effort please.
We can only hope for Shinji/Kaworu.
Well, it IS in Asuka, where they have plenty of mango with homosexual undertones.
At best you'll get some fanservice now and then...
Fuckers forgot old school.
unfortunately the chance of that happening is high.. considering it's from a shoujo magz
Get out, faggot.
HOW IS IT FAGOTTRY FOR PEOPLE TO NOT WANT GAY PORN
I WANT TO SEE SHINJI X REI
THAT NEVER HAPPENS OUT OF PORN! CMON THIS IS THE ONLY EVANGELION UNIVERSE WHERE SHE IS'NT REALLY HIS MOM. LET THEM FUCK
Okay, OP here again.
Just finished reading through what's available. Initial impressions are fairly good. The general set-up is a little cliche, but it's from Japan, so I'm not too surprised. I'm enjoying the fact that Kaworu gets to have personality and character development now, and look forward to seeing how that will turn out. The new revamped angels could also prove interesting.
While there is a basic premise, I am still curious as to how this story is going to unfold. I will probably be reading this mainly to see old faces pop up in unexpected places (Aka: Kaji instead of Misato as the substitute parent figure).
And there's nothing wrong with liking shonen either. The only people who stigmatize the word shonen are newfags who think "shonen" automatically means zomgnaruto.
Different mango, although that Shinji's pretty good too.
Honestly, it's only the animu Shinji that's a god damn wuss. And even then he still has his moments of manly.
