    The comic is great, though. I've seen the show - it's a more standard version of the comic's madness.
    I have not read the comic. Yet.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion is coming to Netflix tomorrow. Been wanting to watch this one, glad I’ll finally have a chance.

    Damn this is suddenly looking like a very different show compared to first two seasons.

    So I’m already reading a lot of complaints about Netflix butchering this. They apparently poorly re-dubbed it, changed a lot of the dialogue including classic lines, removed a lot of the soundtrack, and didn’t get the licensing for “Fly Me to the Moon”, which is apparently a theme song in the original release. Thinking I might try elsewhere to watch it now, I’d hate to watch an inferior product if I don’t have to.

    I'm reading some of that too, as an about-to-be first time viewer. As for the sub, the discussion from bilingual/Japanese people make it fall into the realm acceptable for me, because it seems like a more "exact" translation so the difference is about interpretation, not being superior or inferior. The only real blemish to watch it on Netflix for the first time for me is the missing "Fly Me to the Moon" in the episodes' end credit (also, I think they didn't remove a lot of soundtrack as much as only the music cues from that song? Are there more?). I'm gonna check if Netflix Thai has it, or if it's missing from everywhere but Netflix Japan. Apparently the transfer is great enough for a lot of fans to say it's worth it, but I'm going to wait for more people to weigh in.

    I didn't hear specifics on what music was removed, if it was only cues to that song or otherwise. I might give the sub a watch if that's the case (I typically prefer subs over dubs anyhow), and maybe rewatch it later in a more accurate format if I wind up liking it. After all, I've seen several different versions of DBZ over the years, so I'm used to watching different tinkerings of a show.

    So where IS a good place to watch the "good version," whatever that may be? I've never seen it and always wanted to watch it, but I don't really wanna buy DVDs for something I've not even seen before. Is it at least acceptable enough for first-timers?

    If I didn't accidentally buy bootlegs of all of it, I would absolutely watch the Netflix versions before purchasing.

    I quit watching after Season 7. Anyways I bet there is a nice blu ray box set of the show somewhere.

    One good thing about living outside of America is that we are probably not going to be subject to the same degree of splintering in streaming as you guys. I can't imagine NBC offering their own service in Korea and instead they will just sign over the rights to a local company or to Netflix. Here's hoping! (Disney will probably want to launch worldwide though, I assume.)

    As far as I've heard there are no plans to launch all the DC/Disney streamings in South America either.

    There's no killer app for DC at this point. But I'm really looking forward to revisiting The Simpsons on Disney+

    Just can't wait for all the thinkpieces about Cuphead's latent, buried racism.

    I'm starting to think Netflix does this shit on purpose just to generate buzz, a la the Post and the Times.
