~We both love him, so what’s the problem?~
when i see posts like “oh you wanna get into evangelion? well here you go!!” and they list links to watch everything but dont include a link to read the manga online
Why would you read the manga?
Why would you go for a derivative work?
If you wanna get into Haruhi or Log Horizon, read the LNs.
If you wanna get into Eva, watch the anime.
If you wanna get into One Piece? Sure. Read the manga.
Because that’s the fucking source.
no dude seriously read the damn manga.
It is the most priceless treasure there is in the eva universe.
Maybe as a follow-up. But I really don’t understand why someone would say that the ideal introduction is derivative. The ideal introduction is first accessible, followed by (or starting with, for the committed) primary source.
That is my feeling.
The Evangelion manga was published before the anime was even aired as part of a joint effort from the studio staff for promotional interest. It’s not a derivative so much as a companion to the anime.
So, chronologically, the manga was released before the anime. Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, the author and artist, was part of the anime’s art staff as character designer.
For the first several volumes of the manga, it is nearly identical to the anime, and even when the stories differ (When Kaworu comes in, or the end) the manga is a masterpiece that rightfully stands aside the anime. Both have unique standpoints and introspective, deeply personal psychological inner workings based on their writers unique perspectives of the series.
Sadamoto’s vision of Kaworu (laughably nicknamed ‘Karl’ by fans due to his dissociative nature from the anime’s Kaworu) and the humor behind his approach was derived from his personal feelings about the character. His awkward feelings for Kaworu had to be masked over in his writing by jokes (“So it doesn’t have to be a paper bag at all!”) because he, like Shinji, couldn’t help liking the character no matter how he wrote him as.
The manga is not in any way more complicated than the manga, and does not lack any pre-understanding of the anime to enjoy. (Vice versa as well.) In fact, many of the technical details that may have felt rushed in the anime due to pacing or budget cuts are far easier to comprehend when in the form of a book you can pause and reread by flipping back a few pages at your own pace.
While one does not have to be read first, or at all, to enjoy the other, to call one or the other a lesser adaptation because of the order they came out is a false assumption. They are on equal footing in the Eva universe, and both valuable to read in any order.
While liking one over the other is a matter of personal preference, each experience is equally the true Eva experience.
I have a lot of feels over this
I thought this was setting up for a joke.
