Shinji Ikari Raising Project Getting An Omnibus

The Neon Genesis: Evangelion spinoff The Shinji Ikari Raising Project is getting an Omnibus collection. It’s been a big week for Dark Horse Manga, with this being the fourth announcement of a big collection coming in summer of 2016.

From the Dark Horse press release:

Stunning, hotheaded Asuka Langley Soryu has been friends with Shinji Ikari since they were little. And she always sort of assumed they’d stay together—until the day the beautiful, brilliant Rei Ayanami showed up in class! When Shinji starts to get curious about Rei, Asuka needs to figure out if she wants to be just friends with Shinji, or something more. But why are so many people keeping an eye on these relationships—people like homeroom teacher Misato, school nurse Ritsuko, and Shinji’s mother—NERV’s chief scientist, Yui Ikari . . . ?

Interest in Neon Genesis: Evangelion should increase in the next year, following the television series’ twentieth anniversary in 2015 and as a feature film develops further. The first Shinji Ikari Omnibus arrives at your local comic shop on August 16,2016. Ask them to order it it for you and mark your calendar.
