"Neon Genesis Evangelion," a classic anime now on Netflix, tells the story of our lives
Megan Daalder

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a classic 1995 Japanese animated series that takes place in a future that is already our past, the year 2015. Yet it has never been more relevant. Described in the New Yorker as "a kind of Holy Grail for anime fans" because it's been difficult to find and watch legally until now, it was released by Netflix in English on June 21.
