This book collects the complete storyboards used during the production of Hideaki Anno’s Evangelion : 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone, the first of the three Rebuild Of Evangelion anime films. The storyboards are drawn by 4 different artists, including Anno-san himself and the quality of the art work does vary.
These storyboards were also previously included in the Evangelion Complete Records art book, but this is the first time they are published as single volumes.
This will surely be of interest to Evangelion fans, but for those who are used to the high quality art of Miyazaki Hayao’s storyboards this might be less impressive. Storyboards are ultimately a pre-production tool so the quality of the drawings really isn’t of top importance. There’s are some drawings in this volume, though not consistently through the entire book.
For those looking for beautiful Evangelion drawings, I highly recommend the Groundwork series of art books.
