A new Evangelion manga spinoff series is being serialised in the Japanese shōjo magazine Asuka. The series is titled Neon Genesis Evangelion: Shinji Ikari’s Detective Journal and puts Shinji in the role of the “detective”; or perhaps it’s something more akin to Encyclopedia Brown, only with Tokyo-3’s most clueless resident in the lead role.
Since Asuka is a shōjo magazine, you can bet that Kaworu will be making an appearance, and the promotional materials seem to bear this out. Perhaps the series will take a Holmes-Watson approach?
