Osamu Takahashi to end adaptation of game in 18th volume

The 17th volume of Osamu Takahashi's Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Shinji Ikari Raising Project (Shin Seiki Evangelion: Ikari Shinji Ikusei Keikaku) manga is announcing on Saturday that the series will end in the next volume next summer.

The original Shin Seiki Evangelion: Ikari Shinji Ikusei Keikaku game has the player "raising" Shinji Ikari, the main character of the Evangelion science-fiction franchise, and determining what path his life will take. (Before Evangelion, Gainax developed the Princess Maker franchise in which the player raises a girl to adulthood.) The manga version adapts the game storyline, particularly its school sequences.

The manga has been running in Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine — the same magazine that serialized Yoshiyuki Sadamoto's main Evangelion manga — since June of 2005. Dark Horse Comics will publish the 15th volume in North America in December.
