Evangelion Manga to End in 2 More Chapters

posted on by Egan Loo
Yoshiyuki Sadamoto began manga over 18 years ago, before anime premiered

The June issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Young Ace magazine is revealing on Thursday that Yoshiyuki Sadamoto is ending his Neon Genesis Evangelion manga in two more chapters. If the science-fiction series runs the remaining chapters without a break, it will end in June.

Sadamoto launched the manga in the third issue ever published of Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in December of 1994 — before the anime itself premiered on television. It has been running on and off for over 18 years since then. To celebrate the upcoming finale, Young Ace is running an "Evangelion Comic Climax Special Program" with talk sessions between the people involved and other content in the remaining issues.

Sadamoto had written in Young Ace in March that he is "working hard until the very end of the manga … this year." Glenat, the manga's French publisher, had reported last August that the manga's 14th book volume will be the final one.

The 13th and most recent compiled volume of the manga shipped in Japan, the United States, and other countries worldwide last November.

Update: The two remaining chapters include the chapter running in Thursday's issue, so the manga will end on June 4 if there are no more breaks.
