With Netflix set to bring out the original Neon Genesis Evangelion TV series as well as the two feature films that were produced with Death True and The End of Evangelion this month, King Records in Japan has lined up some plans for new home video release editions. The distributor has set a July 24th, 2019 release for a Blu-ray box set priced at 18,000 yen that will include the above projects and all their original extras from prior releases. Additionally, fans can get the eight volumes of single Blu-ray releases for 3,800 yen each, with the last one being 3,600 yen. They can also do the same with the DVD side where it’s at 3,500 yen per volume and the final being 3,300 yen.
This is basically a priced-down version of the 2015 material that was released.
The plan is for a global streaming debut to happen in the spring of 2019 with details to come regarding it. Check out their trailer for it below and the recent music video King Records released for the new CD in Japan.
