DIVE INTO THE WORLD OF NEON GENESIS EVANGELION LIKE NEVER BEFORE WITH THE ESSENTIAL EVANGELION CHRONICLE: SIDE A
One of the most beloved anime series of all time, Neon Genesis Evangelion has been thrilling fans around the world since its original run began in Japan in 1995. Now, just in time for the series’ 20th anniversary, UDON Entertainment is thrilled to announce the release of its latest Evangelion art book, The Essential Evangelion Chronicle: Side A!
Essential indeed for new and longtime Evangelion fans alike, The Essential Evangelion Chronicle: Side A features an extensive episode guide that explores, deconstructs, and shines new light on the first 13 action-packed episodes of the original anime series. But that’s not all – this gorgeous art book is also jam-packed with detailed character profiles, exhaustive character relationship charts, and a comprehensive look at various Evangelion merchandise, including soundtrack CDs, action figures, garage kits, and more.
“Having already watched the original Evangelion series several times, I didn’t think there was very much left for me to learn about it,” said Ash Paulsen, UDON’s Senior Editor. “Simply put, I was wrong. The Essential Evangelion Chronicle: Side A is positively brimming with beautiful character art and detailed Evangelion, Angel, background, and prop designs, and the episode guide delves into the series’ first 13 episodes in greater detail than I ever thought possible!”
The Essential Evangelion Chronicle: Side A is UDON’s second Evangelion art book localization, following the release of Evangelion Chronicle: Illustrations in late 2012. Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait nearly as long to get their hands on UDON’s next Evangelion art book – The Essential Evangelion Chronicle: Side B, which covers the second half of the original series in painstaking detail, is on track for release later this year!
In the meantime, check out a 6-page preview of The Essential Evangelion Chronicle: Side A below. The book is available now in finer comic book stores, on Amazon, and everywhere else UDON art books are sold!
