So… it’s the original? Not a live action remake that isn’t needed? That’s kind of awesome. [LINK]
Neon Genesis Evangelion, the acclaimed mech-meets-psychological-drama anime, is finally coming to streaming. Netflix announced that it has acquired the anime classic, alongside its two sequel films, and will add them to the service next spring. Evangelion ran for just 26 episodes between 1995 and 1996. There hasn’t been a way to stream Gainax’s beloved series before.
Also coming to the streaming service starting next summer are new Saint Seiya and Ultraman shows, both classic franchises in their own right; a stop-motion anime based on the adorable Rilakkuma bear will also air on Netflix next year.
