Neon Genesis Evangelion: Girlfriend of Steel 2nd, Gainax’s 2005 adventure anime-style video game and accompanying manga, exists in an alternate universe established in episode 26 of Neon Genesis Evangelion. It functions as the bonus episode to this visual novel. Though it’s connected to Neon Genesis Evangelion, it’s unconnected to Neon Genesis Evangelion: Girlfriend of Steel, despite the confusingly connected names. The protagonist here, Shinji Ikari, is also the hero of the original series, and players help him navigate his day to day life in Tokyo-3. Characters from the original series populate this edition but with radically altered personas. The game has dating sim aspects and dateable characters.
