A roughly 100-page perfect bound print book and a PDF.

Why “Rebirth Dilemma”?

Evangelion is constantly reiterating, reconstructing, and rebirthing its characters into same-but-different scenarios. The name “Rebirth Dilemma” seeks to put this aspect of Evangelion front and center, especially now that the entire show is being reborn into an age where fandom is more prevalent and accessible than ever.
