The Mexican Netflix page lists the series but does not have a trailer, so I can't tell about it...

So, are we also getting The End of Evangelion on Netflix too?

Yes, we are getting NGE, Death and EoE.

I think this is most definitely a way to get people interested in Shin Eva, even if indirectly. Interest in NGE leads to interest in the Rebuild.
Plus the Netflix release date one month before (likely) the next big Shin Eva news drop.

Edit: On the Netflix app no subtitles appear for me anymore during the Eva preview.
Edit 2: Ok just a one time glitch lol.
Spanish subs. Don't remember their similarity to the DVDs right now

You have to use the desktop version to see subtitles: https://www.netflix.com/title/81033445

In your version Gendo uses the term "angels" or "apostles"?

He uses "Ángeles", which is the common name for them among fans too. :)

Having personal experience and knowledge of the behind the scenes way Netflix operates -
Khara has no hand or input in when or how Netflix releases NGE. Most likely Netflix approached them YEARS AGO with a big check requesting a window of exclusivity on the streaming rights. Khara took the check and once the already existing contracts that were in place with or international streaming services was up Netflix could stream the series. When and how Netflix puts NGE up on their service is up to Netflix alone. Out of courtesy Netflix might - MIGHT - inform Khara a few days before they make an announcement but that's it. Sounds like they gave Khara that courtesy.
Netflix doesn't have to deal with distributors, marketing teams , etc because it's a Direct to the Consumer service & so play by their own rules because they can. One of the key reasons a lot of other studios are building their own streaming services - besides the money of course - is few people appreciate Netflix's "Our Way or the Highway" style of marketing, announcing and releasing things online. Filmmakers for example would love to be able to hype up their movies on Netflix for months and "set a date" but they don't know when their work will go up on Netflix and they have little to no input. I and peers have worked with a few production houses - some small, some big - that have made films exclusively for Netflix or have had their films bought up by Netflix after completion. The constant among all is the people who made the film weren't given much forewarning when their work was going to be released - at most they would receive a 72 hour heads up before an announcement was made - and in some cases they would only find out their work was on Netflix when it was already on.
I can't confirm this but I think last year when Netflix dropped THE CLOVERFIELD PROJECT on the service right after the SuperBowl even Paramount Pictures (who sold it to them) was only informed at the last minute as a courtesy.

Khara is probably planning something now to tie in with the NGE Netflix release but those plans were probably put into motion at around the same time that we as fans found out it the series was being dropped online on June 21st.

Interesting insight.
I don't know if khara has something planned in relation to the Netflix release specifically (other than the well timed bluray rerelease), but I think the general effect of the show being widely available will be good for Eva as a whole (as its fandom has been a bit dormant lately) and thus Shin Eva.

This is showing up in Canada Netflix now, for June 21 release:
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion (with preview, subtitled)
  • Evangelion Death (True)^2
  • The End of Evangelion
Quality of the preview looks far better than Platinum DVDs.

However (but hard to judge from such a short clip) the subs are worse than Platinum.

What is bad about the subs? (I don't see the English ones)

Is this Legit? Sounds like the old dub.

Some say it is, some say it isn't. Can't tell nowadays.

Looks like a fan edit. Netflix trailers for things in other languages tend to be in the original language with subtitles, not dubbed.

Fan edit most likely.
At an almost 3 minute runtime that trailer is way too long for something so small stakes & not a true Original in the Netflix library.

And they mention the wiki that stole our content (instead of helping to make our wiki better) FIRST.

Disgusting. Fuck em.

Definitely original Manga audio...
And that is NOT a trailer... It's a SPOILER bomb!
I seriously doubt anyone would make a trailer that spoils the whole thing nowadays...

Why is that Netflix has a page up for the TV series but not for the movies? :um:

Pretty sure they only got the rights for the NGE and EoE. Could be wrong.

There is actually a page for EoE already, not sure about Death. It just doesn't have a preview. I don't have the link but a screenshot was posted earlier in the thread. I think it's just being hidden like NGE was for the first month or so of the page being up.

They have Death as well. I'm amazed how many people aren't reading the announcement with all the details on the first page before commenting in the thread.

By the way, I have noticed how their trailers are quite action-heavy and seem to present Eva as a mostly action anime - the release date trailer was entirely built out of Episode 9, for instance. Perhaps Netflix is trying to market this to a more "general" anime audience, and this could presumably bring in that audience over to our humble forums. So much confusion.
