FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

VIZ MEDIA TO DEBUT NEWEST VOLUME OF NEON GENEIS EVANGELION MANGA IN PRINT & DIGITALLY SAME DAY AS JAPANESE RELEASE

Volume 13 Of Celebrated Sci-Fi Manga Series Debuts As Worldwide Simultaneous Release On November 2nd; Digital Volume Will Be Available On VIZManga.com And VIZ Manga App

San Francisco, CA, June 4, 2012 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, will participate in the upcoming same-day worldwide release of Volume 13 of NEON GENESIS EVANGELION on November 2nd. The newest volume of the acclaimed sci-fi action manga (graphic novel) series (rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens) will hit retailers across North America and will carry an MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN. The volume will also be available on VIZManga.com and the VIZ Manga App for the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod® touch, and will be available for $4.99 U.S. / CAN.

NEON GENESIS EVANGELION (rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens) is series co-creator Yoshiyuki Sadamoto's personal interpretation of the Evangelion characters and story is sure to intrigue new and old fans alike. In 2015, the "Angels" have returned, and Shinji Ikari, a fourteen year-old child of the new Earth, is forced
by his father Gendo – commander of the secret organization NERV – to pilot the monstrous biomechanical weapon called "Evangelion" to match the Angels' fearsome power...

In Volume 13, as mankind tilts on the brink of the Third Impact, human feelings are fault lines; good, for cracking the world open, or bad, to be welded forever shut. Once Shinji didn’t care about anything; then he found people to fight for – only to learn that he couldn’t protect them, or keep those he let into his heart from going away.

The world hangs in the balance as Asuka fights to survive an onslaught of Evas determined to destroy her. Shinji rushes to help but he may be too late – deep inside the NERV command center, Dr. Ikari is about to set in motion the last act of the Instrumentality Project. Everything has gone according to Ikari’s plans so far, but even he cannot foresee the role Shinji will play in determining the future!

"NEON GENESIS EVANGELION is one of the most celebrated series of all time and enjoys a massive international fan base," says Leyla Aker, Vice President, Publishing. "We hope to give North American fans something special by making the newest volume available the same day as its debut in Japan. The climactic battle of the series has started, so the tension and action in this installment are definitely not to be missed!"
