Sprucing up its anime streaming quotient, Netflix to stream ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’

Netflix is soon going to stream Neon Genesis Evangelion worldwide along with four other anime series in spring 2019. In its ongoing pursuit to become a major player in the anime space with over a dozen premium anime series already streaming, the acquisition of the much-acclaimed Neon Genesis Evangelion is only going to boost its position. Neon Genesis Evangelion originally aired in Japan in the month of October 1995 with a 26-episode run. The series takes place in 2015 and sees Tokyo three under attack by mechanical monsters known as the Angels. Shinji Ikari, who is chosen to pilot the Humanoid Decisive Weapon Evangelion, has the fate of humanity on his shoulders. Earlier this year, Devilman Crybaby made an exclusive debut on the streaming powerhouse, followed by other popular series like Aggretsuko and B: The Beginning. Two films, the series-recut Death and Rebirth and the feature-length finale The End of Evangelion, followed in 1997, crystallising that the anime was more of a dooming horror than action. Since then, the animation studio has come back to the Evangelion with a collection of movies poised to reimagine and resurge the original series. Wait for Spring 2019!
