The April issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine announced on Tuesday that writer Yūshi Kawata and artist Yukito (Don Quixote -Ureigao no Kishi: Sono Ai-) will publish a Neon Genesis Evangelion manga spinoff in the May issue on April 4. The tagline reads "The stage is 'Eva' x 'game department'!? Look out for this unique combination!"
Manga creator Yoshiyuki Sadamoto published the last chapter of the Neon Genesis Evangelion manga series last June — 18 years after its launch in 1994. The series has inspired multiple manga spinoffs, including the Neon Genesis Evangelion: Comic Tribute, Neon Genesis Evangelion: Campus Apocalypse, Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Shinji Ikari Detective Diary, Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days, and Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Shinji Ikari Raising Project. Dark Horse Comics licensed all the series for release in North America with the exception of Angelic Days, which was released by ADV Manga.
Kawata and Yukito are also releasing a special Fist of the North Star chapter in Monthly Comic Zenon on March 25.
