Manga: Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days

Angelic Days is a manga High School AU (sort of) of the cast of the hugely popular Neon Genesis Evangelion. 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 Evangelion. In the High School AU, 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:

  • Mind Screw: Just what are Kaworu and the Evas? Because the origins for the canon don't fit...
  • New Transfer Student: Rei and it causes drama early one. She's been one of these fo often she didn't bother to get the school uniform so other girls thought she was stuck up and trying to stand out.
  • Romantic Comedy: The Angels are in the background and the personal tragedies are missing or downplayed.
  • Tsundere: Asuka but unlike the original she's less temperamental and more affectionate.
  • Victorious Childhood Friend: Asuka, see First Girl Wins.
  • Yandere: "I'm a friend to Shinji. And only to Shinji." The person who said that was Kaworu
