What The Hulu/Funimation Deal Means For Anime

Daniel Kurland Dec 5, 2018

Hulu and Funimation made a massive deal that will put them at forefront of anime content.

Anime in North America has come a long way from being relegated to a dozen VHS tapes in the corner of a rental store in the “Japanimation” section. Not only are there now multiple streaming options for anime fans, but the genre has pierced the mainstream in a number of substantial ways, like Adult Swim’s popular Toonami block and theatrical releases of titles. Competition only continues to heat up between distribution channels like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, but the latter has just made a major power play that should substantially shake things up and also make it a lot easier for people to get the best anime content.

Hulu and Funimation have already been in cooperation with each other, but their latest deal proves they are in it for the long haul.

Anime Classic ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ to Make Global Streaming Debut on Netflix in 2019 (Videos)
Get ready to learn how to say “what the hell just happened?” in Japanese. “Neon Genesis Evangelion,” one of the most acclaimed — and straight up weird — works in anime history, will be available to stream globally for the first time when it debuts on Netflix in 2019.

The announcement came during Netflix’s Anime Lineup Presentation, held Tuesday in Tokyo.

Produced by Gainax and Tatsunoko Production, “Neon Genesis Evangelion” originally aired on TV Tokyo from October 1995 to March 1996. Set in the far-future year of 2015, the show tracks a war between humans, defended by pilots who control giant bio-machines called “Evangelions,” and aliens called “Angels.” Drawing imagery from Kabbalah, Christianity and Judaism, “Evangelion” is particularly celebrated — and notorious — for its insane ending. The uninitiated can watch the teaser trailer above.

Neon Genesis Evangelion Finally Debuts On Netflix Streaming

Shamus Kelley Nov 27, 2018

After years of being legally unavailable outside of Japan, the classic anime series finally makes its way to Netflix worldwide.

Get streaming on Netflix, Shinji! For being one of the most beloved and influential anime series of all time, Neon Genesis Evangelion has been nearly impossible to track down legally for years. While the series is constantly referenced in best of lists and scholarly articles, if you didn't live in Japan and weren't willing to pay high prices for DVDs or Blu-rays, you would not be able to get the classic series.

Netflix is about to change all that. In a surprise move, Netflix announced that Evangelion will begin streaming worldwide in the Spring of 2019. You can watch that announcement here, featuring the series' absolutely breathtaking animation.

Pretty Packaging: The Revolutionary Girl Utena Boxset Wins All Duels

(Its full title is the Revolutionary Girl Utena 20th Anniversary Ultra Edition boxset, but hey, what's in a name...) The nineties were an interesting times for anime. On a technical front, computer graphics were slowly but surely becoming cheaper, allowing even lower-budgeted television productions to start using them. On an artistic front, creators started having fun with (in)famous eighties anime tropes, spoofing them and deliberately messing a bit with audience expectations. Several series from the late nineties became unexpectedly popular, classics even. Titles like Neon Genesis Evangelion and The Spirit of Escaflowne seemed cookie-cutter teen stuff at the start, but both turned out to be so much more. Another title from that time is Revolutionary Girl Utena, which looked to be a romantic high-school comedy...
