They let us audition- AFTER we found out auditions were being held and raised a fuss. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they threw out the files as soon as we left the studio. They never had any intention of involving us.— Amanda Winn Lee (@amandawinnlee) March 23, 2019
Fans are already lamenting this confirmation from the O.G. Evangelion voice cast that they won't be returning. So long, an thanks for al the awesome memories!

netflix: we’re redubbing it
me: oh cool! the og dub is pretty iconic though im not sure if ill—
netflix: with no option to listen to the original english dub! haha!
me: Hey Why
In world where everything is customizable, Netflix is giving fans very little choice.
@netflix You guys reallllly fucked up with not putting the OG dub of Neon Genesis Evangelion your service. Not interested. I'm all for a redub, but the fact that you so rudely snubbed the great voice actors who made the dub of that show work was really cruel.— Nathan Wilburn (@NathanWilburn1) March 27, 2019
Yeah... not including that OG dub might wind up backfiring on Netflix. Anime die-hards aren't feeling this!
@NXOnNetflix so question why is Hunter x Hunter and inuyasha and all these other animes on Netflix are allowed to keep their original English dubs but neon Genesis evangelion doesn't just saying Netflix there are a lot of people who love the original English dub for that show.— Ethan Phaneuf (@ethan_phaneuf) March 27, 2019
Seriously, it's not like other Netflix animes are forced to give up their original dubs - so why is Evangelion being treated differently?
I’m no longer excited about Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix after learning it was being re-dubbed. The original english dub was fine, don’t fix what ain’t broken, but who knows, maybe the new dub will blow me away. Only time will tell— what fite 4 (@NoahAnime) March 26, 2019
Fans sure don't like this - but some of the more level-headed ones are open to being impressed all over again.
Neon Genesis evangelion... #care2 https://t.co/8ZJl7AI7Eg this is a petition to get the original English dub added to Netflix along with the new one Tiffany grant is asuka I can't accept anyone else please sign to protect the dub that's been around for so long and rightfully so.— Ethan Phaneuf (@ethan_phaneuf) March 26, 2019
Netflix better prepare: anime fans aren't going to take this blasphemy lying down. Bring on the petitions!
