"The originating work was a TV series, but a manga serial was being published at the same time. The Neon Genesis Evangelion manga serial, written by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, started running in the February 1995 issue of Shonen Ace (published in December 1994) and is still running as of 2008. The manga was intended to raise interest for Gainax's next major anime project, a mecha TV series also named Neon Genesis Evangelion (directed by Hideaki Anno with character designs by Sadamoto), which was in development at that point." - Wikipedia
While I agree the Eva manga is better than the anime, unless it deviates heavily from End of Evangelion, I couldn't care less about it finishing. I expect the manga to end with the end of the planned rebuild trilogy, if not later.
Can't wait for scanslation of this. Love Sadamoto's style.
