All 30 issues of Chronicle
Title Evangelion Chronicle
Original Publication Date July, 1, 2006 - September, 15, 2007 / August 24, 2010 - January 6, 2011
Publisher Sony Magazines / DeAgostino
Pages roughly 1600
Dimensions 28.5 x 22 cm (11¼ x 8¾ in.)

Evangelion Chronicle is a roughly 1600-page encyclopedic publication on Neon Genesis Evangelion published by Sony Magazines with the endorsement of Gainax and Khara. Its contents are distributed across thirty serial, magazine-like issues that began publication on 07/01/2006 and completed on 09/15/2007.

After that initial run, DeAgostino took over the licensing deal and worked on ten additional issues, starting from 08/24/2010 and ending by 10/26/2010. These issues were created to coincide with the theatrical release of Evangelion 2.0, and update the encyclopedia with contents of the New Theatrical Releases. Following that, they released another ten issues, starting from 11/02/2010 and ending in 01/06/2011. These final issues were developed to introduce new fans to the world of the previous TV series and films, detailing the changes between the New Theatrical Releases and the original source material.

The fifty issues are intended to be collected and their contents reassembled into binders. Each issue is bound with weak glue to facilitate easy removal of the pre-hole-punched leaves. All of the pages are fully labeled, so organizing them into the proper encyclopedic format is an entirely intuitive process, however time-consuming. Additional money may be spent on purchasing official Evangelion Chronicle binders (listed at 1,790円 for the first binder plus dividers, and 990円 for the dual set of binders 01 and 02, and sporting a Yoshiyuki Sadamoto illustration of several Evangelion characters), although any quality 4-cm, three D-ring binders should suffice.

Chronicle has relatively little information that is strictly new, although it is a bountiful and in many ways indispensable resource for the hard-core Eva fan. As Evangelion Chronicle is an officially endorsed supplementary source, its contents are considered third-tier canon[1]. Unfortunately, it is all in Moon-runes Japanese, and translations are elusive things.

The publication has a dedicated team of illustrators, all of whom seem to be working on Evangelion for the first time. Hirofumi Ichikawa and Youichi Fukano (M.I.C.) are dedicated to the Mechanical Sheets and Character Sheets, respectively. Takuya Io contributes a majority of illustrations to other sections. Other contributors include Syuji Imai, Kakuhiko Kakoi, Tomotake Kinoshita, kmyu, Naochika Morishita, Kaito Oomoto, SHISHIZARU, K2 Shoukai, Yoshihiro Takahashi, and Tayuki Yanase.

In addition to the primary encyclopedia, The Essential Evangelion Chronicle Side A (10/25/2007) and Side B (11/26/2007) have been published. These seem to be "digest" volumes with no unique content apart from the cover art, although further confirmation is required. Both these volumes and the individual issues are now out of print, and the official website was discontinued during Spring 2008 or earlier.


The following provides (or will provide, at least, upon acquisition of issues 29 and 30, GIVE REICHU YOUR MONEY) a full "table of contents" for Chronicle in its complete, encyclopedic format. Summaries of the specific information contained within the individual sheets ("Content Details") will be gradually furnished. The names of the sheets in both Japanese and English (as provided by Chronicle) are supplied, with literal title translations occasionally supplied in parentheses. Note that Chronicle's English language titles sometimes include "non-standard" Romanizations, spellings, and translations.

This page has been updated and laid out based on the newest DeAgostino release instead of the initial Sony Magazines one, though bear in mind that the page numbering for the topics that coincide between the two versions is exactly the same.

Binder No. 00

Binder No. 00 contains two main sections, Mechanic Sheets and Character Sheets. This binder uses a blue shade for the logo letters and the insides of it, in an allegory to Eva-00'.

The cover contains a drawing of Rei, superimposed on top of a portrait of the Eva-00' and Kaworu in the left top corner by the background, in an art by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. The inside of the cover of the binder has a picture of Eva-00 amidst of throwing the Spear of Longinus, in an art by Hirofumi Ichikawa. The back cover uses a background gray and white image of Rei, and in a small box on top of it a picture of Rei, leaning against a destroyed wall in her plug suit (one of Sadamoto's more famous images).

Series Guide

The collection starts with an 8-page Series Guide, containing and detailing the plans for the collection, including a final list of Sheet numbers for the first three binders in the collection (plan which was thankfully followed).

I. Mechanic Sheets

Includes Evangelions, Angels, and more "properly" mechanical things. Evas, Angels, and Jet Alone receive fold-overs: a double-page spread with an original illustrations by Hirofumi Ichikawa on one side, and information on the other.

The Binder separator cardboard page front contains a red and black drawing of Eva-01, along with Shinji right after putting his plug suit on (art by Youichi Fukano). In the back, a gray and black illustration of the Eva-01 after going berserk. The only red detail in the illustration marks Eva-01's eye for added impact.

Binder No. 01

Binder No. 01 contains four main sections, Timeline Sheets, Tactics Sheets, Installation Sheets and Technology Sheets. This binder uses a purple shade for the logo letters and the insides of it, as a reference to the usual color of the shield of Eva-01.

The cover contains a drawing of Shinji, on top of a close portrait of Misato and the Eva-01, with a backdrop of fire, in an art by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. The inside of the cover of the binder has a picture of Eva-01 standing on one foot while carrying the Pallet Rifle, in an art by Hirofumi Ichikawa. The back cover uses a background gray and white image of Shinji, and in a small box on top of it a picture of Rei, Asuka, Misato, Shinji and Kaworu, Shinji having a nice cup of coffee and using Misato's well-known cross necklace (again, art by Sadamoto).

III. Timeline Sheets

Step-by-step "walk-through" of the series, illustrated with screenshots and production images. It calls itself a "chronology," though is inconsistent about shuffling events into actual chronological order. For example, while events from Episode 21 et al. are arranged chronologically (on two sheets of "back story") before the story proper begins, a number of flashbacks, such as Misato scolding Shinji after the Shamshel fight and Eva-00's activation test, maintain their "in-episode placement."

The Binder separator cardboard page front features the same drawing of Eva-01, this time on purple and black, with Asuka sitting in her plug suit on (art by Youichi Fukano). In the back, the same gray and black illustration of the Eva-01 after going berserk, with a purple detail in Eva-01's eye.

Binder No. 02

Binder No. 02 only contains a section, Extra Sheets. It contains an assortment of details about different events, terminology, about the TV series and theatrical releases (up to The End of Evangelion), the title cards, video games and more. This binder uses a red shade for the logo letters and the insides of it, as to refer to the color of Eva-02's shields.

The cover features an image of Asuka in her sunflower yellow colored dress, besides of a close portrait of Kaji and as a backdrop, the Eva-02 looms in darkness, drawn by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. The inside of the cover of the binder has a picture of Eva-02 handling dual grenade launchers, in an art by Hirofumi Ichikawa. The back cover uses a background gray and white image of Asuka, and in a small box on top of it, the world famous picture of Asuka in her dress atop the NERV logo (art by Sadamoto).

VII. Extra Sheets

As detailed before, The Extra Sheets contains detailed information about the series, including some interpretations and conclusions that might or not be even considered third-tier canon.

It divides itself into four subsections: Glossary (in the ever-wonderful Japanese kana order), Planning Documents, Topics, Theme Song Collection and Lists of Staff for the series and theatrical movies.

Though this binder only contains this section, it was released with a separator cardboard as well. The front of it features the same drawing of Eva-01, this time on dark orange and black, with Kaworu in his plug suit seductively sitting by (art by Youichi Fukano). In the back, the same gray and black illustration of the Eva-01 after going berserk, with some dark orange detail in Eva-01's eye.


40 sheets of key terms, people, places, and so forth, down to minutiae only mentioned or seen on screen once -- even the most hardened veteran may find the listing full of previously unnoticed items. The Glossary includes some extra-canonical items like video game characters and Eva weapons, as well. Illustrated with captioned screenshots.

For a translated listing of the glossary's contents, see Evangelion Chronicle (Glossary Index).

Binder No. EX

To coincide with the theatrical release of Evangelion 2.0 : You Can (Not) Advance, DeAgostini (the latest beholders of the Evangelion Chronicle license), released a limited series of extra 10 Evangelion Chronicle issues with details about the Evangelion 1.0 and 2.0 films, along with a new binder and separators to contain them. This binder is, stylistically, pretty similar to the original binders, while using an dark orange shade for the logo letters and a bright orange color for the insides of it, presumably in a reference to the orange tinted glow present around the Evangelion 2.0 logo and the lettering used in the official poster and publicity materials typography.

The cover feature the official film poster for Evangelion 2.0 : You Can (Not) Advance, an original drawing with Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. Also, in the back cover, the original film poster for Evangelion 1.0 : You Are (Not) Alone. In the inside of the binder, a bright orange colored hexagonal backdrop.

Binder No. EX contains five sections. The first three of them prefixed with the "New Theatrical Release" denomination to differentiate them from the originals: Character Sheets, Mechanic Sheets and Story Sheets. Along with those, Puchi Eva Sheets and Extra Sheets to complement.

  1. Bochan_bird: "Gainax's involvement in Evangelion Chronicle is basically that of original rights holder (royalties!) and "Overall Supervision." However, Gainax does not appear to be directly involved in the writing, editing or publishing. Of course the source material comes from Gainax and I am sure that they have a lot of input, but the magazine itself is authored by TRAP, edited by Wave Inc. and Meglomania Inc., published by Wave Inc., and distributed by Sony Magazines. So again, Gainax's involvement is that of "Overall Supervision" like with the RCB."

This article bears the unpleasant designation of "Stub." This is a Bad Thing. Provide a great service to NGE fan-geeks everywhere by making it awesomer!
