''Angelic Days'' is a manga HighSchoolAU (sort of) of the cast of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. It's really an adaptation of the video game based off of Evangelion called ''Girlfriend of Steel 2''.

The story of it continues Shinji's dream sequence in Episode 26 of the original series. In the HighSchoolAU, Asuka is his childhood friend along with Kaworu, Rei is an extroverted, easily excited new transfer student, Misato is the homeroom teacher, and Ritsuko is the school nurse. Yui Ikari is still alive. The Evangelions and Angels make up very little of the plot. Most of it is {{romantic comedy}} hijinks, and needless to say it ends much happier than the apocalyptic original series.

It lasted 6 volumes from 2003-2005.

!!Tropes related to the series:

* AccidentalPervert: Shinji is accused of being this after he [[CrashIntoHello bumped into Rei on accident]], though Shinji really saw nothing.
* AdultsAreUseless: Because Evas hate them. It's deconstructed at the end. When Toji becomes an adult, he becomes useless too.
* AscendedExtra: Kensuke is an EVA Pilot now, specifically piloting EVA-04, which, in the series, was destroyed before getting a pilot or (presumably) a Soul.
* {{Bishonen}}: Kaworu; it's lampshaded.
* CantTieHisTie: In its final volume Asuka fixes Shinji's [[{{Tsundere}} while complaining how she has to do this, and how Shinji can't, and other things, while blushing]]. The others take it as a sign that their RelationshipUpgrade is holding.
* CrashIntoHello: Shinji and Rei meet when the former bumbs into the latter.
* FinalBattle: Tokyo-03 falls under attack by an ''army'' of Angels. Not just one or two, but almost ''every''. ''Last''. '''ONE''', including Adam.
* FirstGirlWins: Asuka, the childhood friend and first introduced, is the one who gets TheProtagonist.
* GenkiGirl: Rei, of all people, is a high energy girl.
* HighSchoolAU: Downplayed.
** All the giant robots and angels and stuff? It's still there. It's just that Angelic Days is [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism idealistic]] and more focused on the High School parts than the mecha battle parts. In fact, there are only two major battles in the entire series, the first one being a fight involving Shinji and Rei double-teaming Sachiel and a full-scale war between the Evas and the Angels.
** Ritsuko and Misato appear to be school staff now, but they still have connections to NERV.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Shinji/Asuka is shipped by everyone. Kaworu teases them about it and bullies try to use Asuka's jealousy about it to convince her to join in bullying Rei.
* IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Rei and Kensuke give up Shinji and Asuka respectively so the latter pair can be together.
%%* LoveableSexManiac: Toji
* MindScrew: Just what ''are'' Kaworu and the Evas? Because the origins for the canon don't fit...
* NewTransferStudent: Rei and it causes drama early on. She's been one of these so often she didn't bother to get the school uniform so other girls thought she was stuck up and trying to stand out.
* RomanticComedy: The Angels are in the background and the personal tragedies are missing or downplayed so what remains is comedic hijinks with a love triangle.
* {{Tsundere}}: Asuka. She's less temperamental and more affectionate than the original.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: Asuka is [[FirstGirlWins the first girl Shinji has ever met by way of being neighbors and so she wins]].
* {{Yandere}}: "I'm a friend to Shinji. And ''only'' to Shinji." The person who said that was [[spoiler: Kaworu]].
