Release date

Neon Genesis Evangelion: Shinji Ikari Raising Project (新 世紀 エ ヴ ァ ン ゲ リ オ ン 碇 シ ン ジ 育成 計画 [?], "Shin Seiki Evangerion: Ikari Shinji Ikusei Keikaku") is a computer game based on the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. The character design and artwork is done by the mangaka Kengo Yonekura. The player assumes control of Shinji Ikari, the protagonist and main character of the normal Neon Genesis Evangelion series, and schedules his daily life to prepare for battles with Angels and other major plot points.

Every Sunday, the player can choose two activities per day for Shinji to complete over the next week. What Shinji does influences his parameters (for example, taking Battle Training will increase his ability in Eva battles). On these Sundays, Shinji and Misato can also take part in extra activities, such as shopping for items which have various effects on Shinji's parameters, or going to work at NERV, which unlocks new Eva equipment. Battle controls are menu-driven and the outcome is determined by a combination of different parameters. At various points in the game, Shinji will also be asked to make dialogue choices which can influence events and conversations that follow.

The game also introduces three new female NERV technicians: Kaede Agano (阿 賀 野 カ エ デ [?], "'Agano Kaede '")[1] (voiced by Ai Shimizu), Satsuki Ooi (大 井 サ ツ キ [?], "'Ōi Satsuki '")[2] (voiced by Maria Yamamoto), and Aoi Mogami (最 上 ア オ イ [?], "'Mogami Aoi '")[3] (voiced by Yui Horie).

The game is available in Japanese and Korean for Windows PCs and has received fan-translations into English and Russian.[4]

Plot [edit | edit source]

The game features three main story routes, known as Thanatos, pathos other campus, respectively. Each route goes for a different amount of "episodes", which can last between two and eight weeks of in-game time and focus on a specific segment of the story. Which route the player ends up on is primarily determined by the hidden Independence parameter. There is also an additional route known as the Kaworu Nagisa Education Project, unlocked after beating the game (see Kaworu Nagisa Education Project section.)

All three main routes can be identified by the player by looking at the dialogue box shown in each episode. The Thanatos route's dialogue box has a dark gray border with the words 'Neon Genesis Evangelion' embedded above the character portrait. The Pathos route's dialogue box is a lighter gray with two green stripes on either side of the character portrait. The Campus route's dialogue box is purple with a gold trim around the edges. After episode 21, the player is locked into the route they're on, except in the case of Campus which allows the player to decide between it and the Pathos route on episode 24.

Routes[edit | edit source]

Thanatos [edit | edit source]

The Thanatos route loosely adapts the story of the original show and spans 26 episodes. The first seven episodes of this route are compulsory in every playthrough. Like the original series, this route sees main character, Shinji, summoned to NERV by his estranged father, Gendo Ikari, and tasked with piloting an Evangelion unit. He is placed under care of Misato Katsuragi, who functions as his guardian and parental figure. He and the other pilots, Rei Ayanami and later, Asuka Langley Soryu, must fight alien-like beings called Angels in order to prevent the Third Impact from occurring.

While it cuts out certain things from the original series for time constraints and adds in some original scenes and character interactions, the Thanatos route does not diverge from it in any substantial way. It adapts up to a brief version of Episode 26 ', and culminates in an ending featuring the red sea from the end of said episode.

Pathos [edit | edit source]

After episode 7, the player will have the ability to move to and from Thanatos and the Pathos route, a version of events which basically follows the same plot outline but in a more comedic fashion. This route sees Shinji and the other characters doing a number of recreational activites to progress in the story, such as selling ice-cream, camping and synchronized swimming. This route also sees both Toji Suzuhara and Kensuke Aida becoming Eva pilots. It culminates in the Third Impact being prevented, as well as a number of additional, optional endings determined by the player's stats.

Campus [edit | edit source]

Starting in episode 21, the third route, Campus, which loosely adapts the alternate, slice-of-life-esque world presented in episode 26 of the original series, may be unlocked by the player. The campus route is what inspired the manga of the same name. This route sees Shinji attending class in a universe with no Evas or Angels, living a normal life as a teenage boy, where the staff at NERV are now his teachers and the original Evangelion series is a fictional work written by he and Kaworu Nagisa in class. Mana Kirishima is also now one of the students of class 2-A, and his mother, Yui Ikari, is alive and away on international work. This path culminates in one of two ways: either the player chooses to have Shinji end the Evangelion story with 'a happy ending in the new world', and the path will continue until episode 26 and give the player one of several Campus-specific ending combinations, or they will choose to end it by returning to the original world and the path will Terminate on episode 24 and return to the Pathos route instead. If the second option is chosen, it will be revealed that the campus route was a dream of Misato's.

Gameplay [edit | edit source]

Parameters[edit | edit source]

During the game you may raise Shinji's parameters, which influence the ending and gameplay. These include:

  • Intelligence (学力, ""Gakuryoku ""): The higher this is, the less likely Shinji will fail tests. It also aides in shooting accuracy in battle (in combination with synchronization rate).
  • Physical strength (体力, ""Tairyoku""): The higher this is, the less likely Shinji will become sick. It also increases the strength of attacks, as well as the Evas' defense in battle (in combination with sensitivity and synchronization rate).
  • Morality (道 徳, ""Dōtoku""): The higher this is, the more likely Shinji will listen to Misato during battle.
  • Sensitivity (感受性, ""Kanjusei""): The higher this is, the higher the Evas defense during battle will be (in combination with physical strength and synchronization rate).
  • Sex appeal (色 気, ""Mohawk""): The higher this is, the more attracted the women in the game will be to Shinji. It may also trigger some weekly events (i.e. an event where Misato confronts Shinji over hiding pornography magazines in his room.)
  • Synchronization rate (シ ン ク ロ 率, ""Shinkuro-ritsu""): The higher this is, the greater shooting accuracy (in combination with intelligence) and greater defense (in combination with physical strength and sensitivity) an Eva will have. A higher synchronization rate also means that Eva Unit-01 will go berserk after taking less damage in battle.
  • stress (ス ト レ ス, ""Sutoresu""): The higher this is, the more likely Shinji will get sick. It functions primarily in relation to the physical strength stat; if stress is lower than strength, Shinji will stay healthy.
  • Work progress (仕事 進 捗, ""Shigoto Shinchoku""): Misato's progress into developing new weapons, based on how frequently the player selects the "NERV Official Work" option from the Sunday menu.
  • Money (所持 金, ""Shojikin""): On the first Sunday of any given month, Misato will receive either 10,000 yen, or 7,000 yen if the city was damaged in the previous battle.
  • Independence (自立 度, ""Jiritsu-do""): A hidden parameter; the amount Shinji has will affect which game path you obtain.
  • Affection (好意, ""Koi""): A number of hidden parameters (for Misato, Asuka, Rei, Mana, Satsuki, Aoi, Kaede, Kaji and Shinji's Friends); These stats are related mostly to romance events and determine which endings Shinji may get.

Scheduled activities[edit | edit source]

The bulk of the game involves the player scheduling Shinji's week every Sunday. The activities he can partake in will affect his parameters in the short-term and, subsequently, the outcome of the game the long-term, including which route the player ends up on and what ending they get.

  • Misato Katsuragi - Misato's affection is influenced by the extra choices available on Sunday. Choosing the Cleaning option will raise it by 5, whereas choosing the NERV Official Work option will lower it by 5. It also raises by 7 every time Shinji attends Battle training classes, given that he is alone. A high affection parameter for Misato can result in a romance ending.
  • Asuka Langley Soryu - Asuka's affection will raise by 5 points every time she and Shinji attend a scheduled activity together. It can also be raised by 5 points by Cleaning on Sundays. A high affection parameter for Asuka can result in a romance ending.

  • Mana Kirishima - Mana is unlocked through Shinji joining the Music club at the start of the game. Mana's affection will be increased by 10 points every time Shinji attends her club. A high affection parameter for Mana can result in a romance ending.
  • Satsuki Ooi - Satsuki's affection will raise by 7 points every time Shinji attends the Sensitivity Enhancement Program or Culture School, given that he is alone. A high affection parameter for Satsuki can result in a romance ending.

  • Kaworu Nagisa - Kaworu does not have an affection parameter. Instead, attending a scheduled activity together will drop everyone else's affection stats by 20 points. If the affection parameters of both the women and Shinji's friends are below 200, this can result in a romance ending.
  • Kaji Ryoji - After Kaji arrives in the story, his affection will raise by 5 points every time Shinji attends the Fitness Enhancement Program or Sports Club, given that he is alone. If his affection is higher than 200, extra dialogue from Kaji will be present in Pathos Episode 26.

High affection with friends can result in a number of different endings, namely the World Without Shinji endings.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Angel battles occur once every few episodes. These battles will generally conclude one of two ways: in the first, Shinji and the other pilots will defeat the angel using their weapons, and in the second, Unit-01 will go berserk after taking too much damage and the angel will be destroyed that way instead. New and more powerful weapons for battle can be obtained using the NERV Official Work feature in the Sunday menu. The battle menu contains several options:

  • Wait (待機, ""Taiki""): On Misato's menu. Puts the N2 minutes on stand-by until the next round.
  • Armed Building (武装 ビ ル, ""Busō Biru""): On Misato's menu. Fires N2 mines from the armed buildings, attacking the angel.
  • Attack (攻 撃, ""Kogeki""): On the Eva menu. The Eva will attack the angel with or without a weapon.

  • Wait (待機, ""Taiki"")): On the Eva menu. The Eva will wait for an incoming attack from the angel and counter it.

Battles may also cause damage to stores. This will result in 3,000 yen being deducted from Misato's monthly allowance from NERV in order to rebuild destroyed buildings. Stores may be closed for short periods of time following this occurrence.

Endings[edit | edit source]

Each route in the game has its own set of endings.

All routes have endings determined by Shinji's affection parameters, with the owner of the highest affection (or Kaworu, if the others are all low) being the focus of the ending. Some endings also see Shinji taking on a career path and are determined by his other parameters, primarily physical strength, sex appeal and morality; these are found in both the pathos other campus routes, and come in combination with a relationship ending.

Bonus Episode: Kaworu Nagisa Education Project[edit | edit source]

After the player has finished the game once, an extra episode known as the Kaworu Nagisa Education Project (渚 カ ヲ ル 養成 計画, ""Nagisa Kaworu Yōsei Keikaku"") will be unlocked. This episode functions as a fourth, separate gameplay route, in which the player takes control of Kaworu Nagisa and must complete four weeks worth of scheduling in an attempt to seduce Shinji, on command of SEELE.

The aim is for the player to match Kaworu's schedule up with Shinji's as much as possible. Every Sunday, Kaworu will have the option of asking Ritsuko to complete an investigation into Shinji's schedule as it is entered by Misato into the database. This will only show half of his schedule; the other half, which stays the same each week, must be worked out by the player through trial and error. The player can instead decide to have Kaworu take a lesson from Ritsuko on humanity. If this option is selected, Shinji's schedule cannot be accessed that week and will need to be guessed instead. Following Shinji's schedule will result in bonus events occurring once a week on Saturday.

The bonus episode functions slightly differently to the main game in terms of parameters. The most important parameters are stress, morality and Shinji's hidden affection stat. Kaworu's stress raises by 20 points every time he completes a class and will start to skip his scheduled activities if his stress is higher than his morality. It can be lowered by attending free time with Shinji on Thursday mornings.

This episode has four possible endings, determined by how closely Kaworu followed Shinji's schedule as well as his morality parameter. The endings are not named.

  • Ending 1: Occurs if Shinji's affection is over 500 points and morality is not Kaworu's highest parameter. This ending sees Kaworu and Shinji run away together, while SEELE prepare to start the Human Instrumentality Project.
  • Ending 2: Occurs if Shinji's affection is over 500 points and morality is Kaworu's highest parameter. This ending sees Kaworu betray SEELE and tell Shinji about their plans, as well as his own identity as an angel.
  • Ending 3: Occurs if Shinji's affection is between 300 and 500 points. This ending sees Kaworu die after Shinji tells him that he can't leave NERV to be with him.
  • Ending 4: Occurs if Shinji's affection is lower than 300 points. This ending sees Kaworu die after Shinji fails to meet with him.
