Netflix has announced that it will begin streaming Hideaki Anno and Gainax’s Neon Genesis Evangelion television anime, as well as the Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death & Rebirth and Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion films, globally in Spring 2019. Netflix’s announcement does not mention if the original English dub from the ADV Films release will be included.
The original anime and films are some of the most influential and critically acclaimed works in the history of the medium, but has long remained out of print and unavailable in North America. ADV Films’ last release of the anime was the “Platinum Edition” DVDs in 2004 and 2005. The company shut down in 2009.
