Neon Genesis Evangelion is officially coming to Netflix.
All 26 episodes, plus the films The End of Evangelion & Evangelion: Death (True)2, will be available to stream come spring 2019.
The synopsis reads: “Evangelion is set fifteen years after a worldwide cataclysm, particularly in the futuristic fortified city of Tokyo-3. The protagonist is Shinji, a teenage boy who was recruited by his father to the shadowy organization Nerv to pilot a giant bio-machine mecha called an “Evangelion” into combat with alien beings called “Angels”. The series explores the experiences and emotions of Evangelion pilots and members of Nerv as they try to prevent any and all of the Angels from causing another cataclysm, and as they deal with the quest of finding out the real truth behind events and organizational moves. The series features imagery derived from Kabbalah, Christianity, and Judaism.”
Reviews from fans are pretty incredible. For example: “This is my all time favorite anime, it dives deep into psychology, philosophy and also deals with issues like depression. The overall message easy to miss is however about hope and keep moving forward, I can’t say anything that has not been already said. Watch this show you wont regret it.”
Another added: “This anime teaches us a lesson that without friends, it is tough to survive. This anime is all about fighting the enemies(angels) and the personal problems of many characters. In the last two episodes it is difficult to understand that what happens to the humanity at the end, in last , they show that Shinji Ikari has changed his mind of living a world with friends and everybody congratulate him. In the manga ending , it is show that Rei takes the form of Adam and creates a black moon, and is seen talking to shinji, and shinji ask her to stop this and make it normal. Later on Shinji is seen as an extrovert who is seen happy.”
We can’t wait.
