<< ## As is usually the case, the US version of a manga is a much thinner one
## that panders to the standard perception in US of what one volume of
## serialized comics should look like. As a result, 7 issues does not amount
## much content-wise. The Japanese manga undoubtedly goes beyond that.
## However, this is *not* complete, far from it. Because the pace of
## serialization is very slow -- around one episode every two months in
## a monthly manga magazine called "ACE-A". The anthologized "tankouhon"
## has a smaller page size than the US version, but much thicker - having
## around 5-6 episodes (I forgot how many exactly). There are up till now
## 4 volumes of manga in "tankouhon" format published, and Asuka just
## finished her synch drill with Shinji and killed the duplicate Angel.
## It is estimated that not until end of 1998 will the vol.5 come out. >>
Wow, thanks for the info! I didn't know the manga came out bi-monthly in a
magazine. I always thought the anthologies were the original format, and the
Viz versions were just slices of the "tankouhon." I have to correct the flawed
info I've given to my friends before they find out the truth from someone
