Neon Genesis Evangelion – RE-TAKESeptember 9, 2006
Well, even after the six years that have passed since I’ve seen the original series the first time the phenomenon called Neon Genesis Evangelion is able to astonish me again. While surfing for some information about the four new movies that are produced just now I happened to find lots of people being enthusiastic about the NGE doujin “RE-TAKE”. I normally don’t read doujins but curiosity was stronger. Soon I was caught up in this doujin and couldn’t stop reading till the end. It is very well made and fits in the story perfectly while giving the ending of Evangelion a new and very pleasant meaning. It was a really delightful experience. The series consists of four volumes (~100 pages each, the last one has ~200 pages) and a special volume 0 with ~50 pages. It has some H-content but only fitting and normal intercourse. I highly recommend this to everybody who likes to get a new (alternative) view on the End of Evangelion and to everybody else, too. I now hope that Gainax manages produce something similar moving and well fitting to the original anime.
