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.
