Episode 47 – The Return of Evangelion!

Episode 47 - The Return of Evangelion!

The Angels have returned, and so have the numerous thinkpieces and hot takes. That can only mean that the ever-so-polarizing Neon Genesis Evangelion has landed on Netflix, and we’re here to have an extended discussion all about it, the elements in it that have changed for this new release, and why this new iteration of the 1995 classic series is what it is. But before that, we have a few news pieces to talk about, including some top-sellers in Japan for the first half of 2019, the latest additions to Toonami coming this weekend, some new shows hitting Netflix in July, and the news that Evangelion 4.0 footage will be premiering – it seems that everything always cycles back around to Evangelion, doesn’t it?
