Ah, yes, what anime fan hasn’t at least dabbled in the absolute insanity that is Neon Genesis Evangelion? Well, if you never got the chance before, here’s your shot; the entire series and two of the movies will be coming to Netflix!
The entire 26-episode season, along with The End of Evangelion & Evangelion: Death & Rebirth, will be available for streaming. However, we don’t know much beyond that. The assumption is that the show will be available in sub and the original English dub. There are no defined dates, so the show and the movies may come out at different points in 2019.
If you need a synopsis of this weird but culturally-significant show, here’s one from MyAnimeList:
In the year 2015, the world stands on the brink of destruction. Humanity’s last hope lies in the hands of Nerv, a special agency under the United Nations, and their Evangelions, giant machines capable of defeating the Angels who herald Earth’s ruin. Gendou Ikari, head of the organization, seeks compatible pilots who can synchronize with the Evangelions and realize their true potential. Aiding in this defensive endeavor are talented personnel Misato Katsuragi, Head of Tactical Operations, and Ritsuko Akagi, Chief Scientist.
Face to face with his father for the first time in years, 14-year-old Shinji Ikari’s average life is irreversibly changed when he is whisked away into the depths of Nerv, and into a harrowing new destiny—he must become the pilot of Evangelion Unit-01 with the fate of mankind on his shoulders.
Written by Hideaki Anno, Neon Genesis Evangelion is a heroic tale of a young boy who will become a legend. But as this psychological drama unfolds, ancient secrets beneath the big picture begin to bubble to the surface…
Neon Genesis Evangelion, The End of Evangelion, and Evangelion: Death & Rebirth will all be available on Netflix in Spring 2019.
