Evangelion, Vol. 1, contains a Japanese sound FX glossary plus special bonus commentary by series mecha designer Ikuto Yamashita, as well as the famous "confession letter" written by director Hideaki Anno in the months before the original TV series premiere that laid out his deeply personal motivations to make Evangelion.

This first volume of the manga adaptation of my favourite anime of all time starts out pretty much the same way the show did. That being said, there are changes made, and in my opinion, for the better. Neon Genesis Evangelion's manga was written and drawn by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, the character designer for the anime, and it really shows with the downright beautiful artwork, and incredible storyline. The deviations from the anime are spectacularly done, without becoming strange and alienating hardcore fans of the anime. I highly recommend this to anyone that's seen the anime, and everyone that hasn't. You won't be disappointed.
