Cover to the first English edition of the Neon Genesis Evangelion manga, published by Viz Media in 1998.

Several manga series have been developed based on the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series created by Gainax. While the first manga is a direct adaptation of the anime series, the following ones are spin-off series with several differences.

The first manga from the series is Neon Genesis Evangelion, written and illustrated by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, who also worked in the character designs from the anime. The manga closely follows the anime story with few changes made to the characters or certain events. The series is serialized in Shōnen Ace from Kadokawa Shoten starting in 1995, but it was put on hiatus. The manga restarted publication in the first issue from the Kadokawa's Young Ace on July from 2009.[1] The chapters from the series have been collected into 11 tankōbon volumes which were published from August 29, 1995 to June 19, 2007.[2][3] Volume 12 was finally released in Japan on April 3, 2010. Viz Media licensed the series for English release and has published the 11 volumes between March 24, 2004 and November 18, 2008.[4][5]

Additionally, Fumino Hayashi has authored a spin-off series called Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days, which focuses on the romantical relationships between the main characters. Kadokawa Shoten serialized the series in Monthly Asuka and collected the series into six tankōbon volumes.[6] The volumes were published from February 17, 2004 to December 17, 2005. In the United States, NewType USA serialized the series, while ADV Manga released the six volumes. Another series having a similar focus is Neon Genesis Evangelion: Shinji Ikari Raising Project, authored by Osamu Takahashi. Shōnen Ace has been publishing the chapters since June 2005, and it is still ongoing with 10 tankōbon having been released. Dark Horse Comics has licensed the series for English release, while the first volume was released on July 8, 2009.[7][8]

Min Min has also authored Neon Genesis Evangelion: Gakuen Datenroku, which uses the same setting from the manga series, but a big difference from the Evangelions and the main characters. It was published in Monthly Asuka from October 2007 to December 2009, and it has been collected into four tankōbon volumes.

Another manga named Evangelion: Ikari Shinji Tantei Nikki (lit. "Evangelion: Shinji Ikari's Detective Journal") started serialization in Asuka's February 24, 2010 issue and is authored by Takumi Yoshimura in collaboration with Gainax and Khara. This manga has protagonized Shinji as a detective.[9]

    Gendo Ikari reveals his true intent is to bring back whatever version of Yui he can. Rei refuses to become the spare and so Gendo shoots her, saying as he does that he can now use Shinji as an alternative. Kaworu tells the other characters of his angel status, but falls victim to Nerves new "anti angel" weapon. However he manages to recover sufficiently to (with Asuka's help) rescue Shinji from Gendo's plan. In the coma induced scene witnessed by Shinji next Kaworu states that it was Shinji who made him "not want to destroy mankind." The Manga ends with Rei, Asuka and Shinji returning to school.
