The August 2018 issue of Kadokawa’s Young Ace magazine has revealed that Yūshi Kawata and Yukito’s Neon Genesis Evangelion: Legend of the Piko-Piko Middle School Students manga will end in the magazine’s next issue on August 4, 2018.
The story of the manga is described as:
Mysterious invaders are threatening Earth… so recruit a group of elite schoolkids to play videogames that secretly train them for the real fight that lies ahead. Does this plan sound familiar? Well, they’d better get a new plan, because the elite schoolkids are Shinji, Rei, Asuka, and Kaworu, and they’re too busy playing games to ever get in the fricking robot.
Kawata and Yukito launched the gag manga spin-off of Neon Genesis Evangelion in Young Ace in 2014. Dark Horse Comics is publishing the manga in English.
