Book Review: Neon Genesis Evangelion Volume 7

Review:  #726
Title:  Neon Genesis Evangelion Volume 7
Series:  Neon Genesis Evangelion - 7th volume
Author:  Yoshiyuki Sadamoto
Read Before:  no
Comments:  Bearing the trauma and guilt of the death of his friend, Shinji takes a while to reconcile and attempts to run away, turning his back on piloting an Eva.  However, it is at this time that one of the most powerful Angels to date attacks headquarters and is so strong that not even Rei or Asuka is able to repel it.  This volume is fantastic in the insights it provides to the Evas, and the suspense of what is happening.  Shinji awakens something within the Eva he pilots and their true nature is slowly being revealed to the reader and it is terribly interesting.  It sucks you in with the unpredictable direction of the plot and the surprising revelations.  Even Shinji’s somewhat whiny attitude to date is fully justified here as he has to grapple with how he can push forward, after such an emotional shock.
