Next year Netflix will start to stream anime royalty in Neon Genesis Evangelion.
This was announced yesterday together with a short trailer embedded below. The 29 episodes of the series – plus the two movies The End of Evangelion and Evangelion: Death (True)2 – will be available in the US Spring of 2019.
For the rest of the world that’s anywhere between March and June.
Those, like us, outside of the US may need to wait and see if Evangelion arrives on our local version of Netflix. We’ve seen it confirmed for Brazil, Latin America and Portugal so far, but a good VPN will get you in regardless of where you live, as long as you have a Netflix subscription.
That last part is particularity important here as the show will apparently stream exclusively on Netflix, going off of the video description on YouTube.
Something missing from this news is the Rebuild of Evangelion movie series. These three films, which will eventually include a forth, are a total reboot of the franchise which changes it so much that it can be considered desperate from the series.
One last thing we have to mention is a warning. If you’ve never watched any of this show, or any other anime before, and you’re thinking “this could be my chance to watch it”, go right ahead, but be prepared for a lot of disturbing and confusing content.
We suggest watching the 28 episodes blind, hopping on Google to find out what the hell you just witnessed, and then moving onto the two included movies and finally to the Rebuild films. Others will suggest other ways to watch it (The End of Evangelion movie is actually an alternate end to the series) but this is just our recommendation.
