    Differences between the anime and manga?

    Hey, I've been reading the manga, and I read somewhere that the anime is quite different, is this true? If so, how does it differ?

    Evangelion is pretty special because in this case the anime came before the manga.
    I don't have a full list of changes but the biggest difference is in the character development. I suggest checking wikipedia for all the differences.

    I don't know how someone who had actually read the manga could say something like that...

    The anime and manga are incredibly different... especially as the series develops in it's later stages. The manga is more detailed, especially in character interactions and background information. Quite a bit of information only implied or guessed by fans in the series has been confirmed by the manga version. Dialogues are longer, character development deeper and at least two characters have changed drastically from their original interpretations, Asuka gets (I think) a far more sympathetic treatment, Kaworu a less messianic one, major relationships/connections that are not established in the series (Rei and Kaworu, etc) are established. Events in the timeline are changed, others are added... While major happenings follow the outline set forth in the anime and do nothing to directly contradict information given there: quite a bit MORE happens in the manga that changes the potential meaning/implication of some of those events.

    ex. in the anime, Kaworu is

    lets just start with the first volume:

    1) During the first angel attack, Misato and Shinji are saved by Rei, Piloting Unit Zero. Doesn't happen in the anime, and in the anime, Rei uses Unit 1 once, and that was in an experiment.
    2) Shinji has a vision of his mother when Unit 1 goes berserk. That doesn't happen in the anime until Unit 1 is swallowed up by the Shadow angel.

    And to further emphasize the differences: In Volume 6

    The way I see it, the manga is a refined retelling of the story.

    well, in the manga kowru was packing an EVA-sized chainsaw... thats kinda cool...

    i agree with aceman, which what he describes should have happened anyway.
    but i altogether like the anime more, personally...
