Neon Genesis Evangelion, Vol. 9: tell me, I pray thee, thy name Kindle & comiXology
Pride in being an Evangelion pilot--that is the essence of the Second Child, Soryu Asuka Langley. But the day she was chosen to be so was the most horrible of her life--and as that truth rises to consume her, Shinji finds a new comrade in the strange, beautiful and disturbing Kaworu Nagisa. Born on the day of the Second Impact, he has been sent directly by SEELE, which alone knows him by his real name--Tabris, the Angel of Free Will.
Eva Vol. 9 contains a Japanese sound FX glossary plus a special bonus article on Kaworu, the mysterious stranger of the Evangelion story.

Good luck and happy hunting!
The cover features Kaworu in the foreground, and Asuka in the background. For you who don't know whose those characters are or what they look like, Kaworu is a pretty boy with albino-like features (like Rei.) Asuka is a redheaded teeange girl with blue eyes. In the picture, Asuka appears to be floating upside down with the head of Evanglion unit 02 behind her. She has somewhat of a dazed/hypnotized expression, and is in her plugsuit. Kaworu in sitting with his elbow propped up on his knee, wearing the school uniform, and smiling out at the viewer For those familiar with the anime, he looks somewhat thinner and larger eyed.The main color is red.
This is the blurb that was on the back:
Pride in being an Evangelion pilot-that is the essence of the second Child, Soryu Asuka Langley. But the day she was chosen to be so was the most horrible of her life-and as that truth rises to consume her, Shinji finds a new comrade in the strange, beautiful, and distrubing Kaworu Nagisa. Born on the day of the Second Impact, he has been sent directly for SEELE, which alone knows him by his real name-Tabris, the Angel of Free Will.
This is the volume of Evangelion where the differences between the manga and animation really shines through. Saying too much would ruin the plot, but expect major differences in events- mostly due to the differences in personality that everyone already underwent in earlier books. which is better relies entirely on individual preference- I was displeased, but only because Kaworu is my favorite character and I feel he is no longer anything like the character in the anime. The alternate scenarios used, however, are surprising and enjoyable, and for those who are jadedly anticipating a simple repeat of the anime story, prepare to be stunned. Some huge key changes lie in Kowaru and Shinji's meeting, Asuka's past, and the level of devastation after a certain Angel Attack. An afterword by Carl Gustav Horn does a good job of summarizing and analyzing the what and why of Yoshiyuki Sadamoto changing what he did, as well as drawing connections to a mark twain novella, "The Mysterious stranger.
There is one major annoyance that has nothing to do with the quality of book, but with the author and publisher; reaching deadlines. I bought my manga from another seller because Viz, for some reason, had problems with reliable distribution until more than a month after the initial release date. Borders sold out quickly and could not restock for the longest time. At the same time, the next volume of a manga usually takes around a month to 3 months to be released. I think the time between 8 and 9 was about 5 months. And now according to the book itself, Yoshiyuki Sadamoto hasn't worked on the manga in japan for 8 months. That means it may take as long as a year to two years for the next book to be translated into english. But I guess most diehard Evangelion fans will endure the wait...
