UDON Entertainment’s upcoming Neon Genesis Evangelion: TV Animation Production Art Collection has sold out at the distributor level. The book is scheduled for release later this month. If you miss out on the first printing, don’t worry. UDON is reprinting the book for follow-up release this November.
Neon Genesis Evangelion is a seminal work in the world of anime. I have fond memories of discovering the series two episodes at a time through expensive VHS tapes in high school. Now the whole series is available to stream on Netflix.
This art collection serves as the ultimate compendium to the anime series, featuring behind-the-scenes and archival design sketches for the 1995 TV series as well as the 1997 theatrical release, along with draft artwork of characters, mecha, weapons, vehicles, and interior and exterior locations. All of this is supported by the original artists’ detailed design notes.
Some first run printings of Neon Genesis Evangelion: TV Animation Production Art Collection are available for pre-order at online retailers and comic shops for its release on August 27th, 2019. Otherwise, you’ll be waiting until November 2019.
