The Shinji Ikari Raising Project is an 'alternate universe' retelling of Neon Genesis Evangelion, in which Shinji and Co. lead relatively normal lives, but get sucked into familiar but different adventures at the NERV labs. In this installment, let's look at a brief publisher synopsis of volumes 6 - 10.
Shinji is never quite sure whether he's in a relationship or just some sort of bizarre lab experiment, and he probably didn't need yet another cute, mysterious individual to arrive in his homeroom. But that's just what he's going to get in the person of Mana Kirishima. Will she prove to be a girlfriend of steel... or more of an iron maiden?
You didn't really think all this raising being inflicted on Shinji by his parents and guardian was without constructive purpose, did you... a purpose, perhaps, related to giant robotlike things? As Yui deals with the fallout from the Jet Alone affair, her son tries to mind his own affairs... but usually just ends up falling.
Take me out to the brawl game! Gendo's latest scheme for fatherlybonding should have seen another draft before putting baseball bats in the hands of his employees. Then, a mysterious hack into the MAGI system brings out allthe brilliant mothers in force: not only Shinji's and Asuka's, but also thesystem's creator Ritsuko's mom, Naoko Akagi! Plus your fan art, letters,and special giveaways.
Face the thing that should not be! At last, Shinji, Rei, and Asuka are being trained for actual combat, gats in hand - stalking a giant gelatinous creature with a spherical "core" they must take out. If this kind of mission sounds strangely familiar, you're right - but if things go as usual, it's poor Shinji who'll get called the slimeball!
Don''t say "crazy"! The campus culture festival is coming up for the students of Class 2-A, and in manga these days that means not only cosplay, but starting an all-girl band! But what are they supposed to do about the fact that the keyboardist, Shinji, isn''t, um, a girl? Well, that''s when it''s time for a little crossplay! Plus, a special bonus 4-koma (four panel gag strip) feature!
