When Netflix announced that it would be featuring the seminal anime classic Neon Genesis Evangelion, fans of the 1995 TV series by studio Gainax, as well as neophytes who hadn’t yet seen it, waited anxiously to see how it would be handled by the streaming giant. Especially of curiosity was the possibility of a brand new English language version of the show, supplanting the previous one done by licensor ADV. Cast members from that dubbed version, including Amanda Winn-Lee, Tiffany Grant, and Spike Spencer all but confirmed that Netflix was going a different direction on social media.
Like many anime fans, I was completely blown away by 2013's Little Witch Academia, which was made by Studio Trigger for the Young Animator Training Project's Anime Mirai showcase. Fan enthusiasm was so high that when a sequel was announced later that same year, a Kickstarter campaign launched to fund its extension to 50 minutes met its $150,000 goal within hours, and eventually raised a total of over $625,000. Clearly fans around the world were extremely passionate about this franchise.
This same passion reached a fever pitch with the announcement that Little Witch Academia would be made into a proper series airing in early 2017. However, when fans discovered that Netflix had acquired the streaming rights for the show, their excitement suffered a blow, due to the way Netflix releases its content.
Right now Netflix has a pretty sweet collection of anime available to watch instantly. Gurren Lagann is one of them as well. However, Netflix members should avoid watching the via the service, especially if you haven't viewed it already.
That's because one of the most important episodes, episode 8, is missing!
