This manga was created after the seriers, and from what I understand, has not yet been completed. The graphics are excellent and have a lot of detail. The story goes pretty in-depth, and parts of the plot are more obvious in the manga than the anime. It’s stuck pretty close to the anime, although some things are different, and more details have been slipped in like I said. The writers probably didn’t want people quite as confused when reading the manga as viewers of the series were. NGE has been very good so far.
