Evangelion's mechanical designer Ikuto Yamashita's official side story project "Neon Genesis Evangelion: ANIMA". In commemoration of the release of "Chogokin Evangelion -ANIMA- Super Evangelion" by Bandai in March 2010. it is a collection of drawings that explains the setting and illustrations of the main mecha. In addition to Yamashita's beautiful Super Evangelion illustrations, there are plenty of character illustrations by Hiroyuki Utatane depicting 17-year-old Rei and Asuka! From the world view to the mechanical setting and character setting, this is a book that allows you to understand the world of "New Century Evangelion: ANIMA".
