The second was the remarkable darkness in this edition. At one point it was borderline gore but that's what I like about this it doesn't go to far with what its trying to send out and that makes some of the dramatic moments in this story feel really dark and dramatic.
Don't get me wrong some of the humor is still retained in this edition but it is slightly more serious when compared to the anime TV stories.
The graphics in this book are completely different to your average manga books with the panels and dialogue boxes being sketched into the page superbly.
On a final note. In my view: if you ever buy just one manga series get this as you'll find it hard to find anything greater

In volume 2, easily the most valuable of the two volume series, contains a great added story that can't be seen in the anime (at least, not the entire thing). It involves Naota and Ninamori, and how they are actually very much alike. The anime buzzes through this quick interaction between these characters in thirty quick minutes, but in the manga it takes two chapters to tell it. I won't spoil it, but in the manga, Ninamori and Naota never go to his house because of the news scandal involving her father and his affair. It's actually so startlingly different and well done that I wonder why it was neglected in the anime. It could have added at least another episode to the short OVA. Another thing you'll notice is that one of the key characters in the series, Mr. Eyebrows, is gone completely. He plays no role in the manga.
This volume of the manga isn't perfect, though. The problem I had was actually a story problem, that being the abrupt ending, as though they just ran out of ideas. Also, like the first volume, the second volume has a strange, non-linear art style that is sometimes a little too wild and experimental. Few outside the fans of the series will find anything worth reading here. In fact, most who pick it up will no doubt leave with the impression that it was one of the worst manga they had ever seen. That being said, I can't recommend it to anyone but fans of the series, or possibly fans of Evangelion. Or for anyone who enjoys experimentation, because here is the ultimate experiment, and a good one at that.
