'Neon Genesis Evangelion' comes to Netflix June 21st


Netflix

Netflix’s flood of content includes a significant anime pushGhost in the Shell, Ultraman — and as part of that it’s going to be the first streamer with Neon Genesis Evangelion on tap, worldwide. The classic series will go live on Netflix June 21st, complete with all 26 episodes plus the two films: Evangelion: Death True² and The End of Evangelion. There’s a brief trailer to help reacquaint you with its mech action and melodrama, but we figure you can just mark your calendar.

DC Universe celebrates Batman's birthday with free access March 30th

Batman is about to celebrate his 80th ‘birthday’ (his first appearance in Detective Comics) on March 30th, and DC Universe is using that as an opportunity to hand out more freebies. The service is providing free access to a wide swath of its Batman movies, TV shows and (of course) comics for 24 hours that day, starting at midnight EST. It doesn’t include everything — most notably, Christopher Nolan’s movies will remain locked behind a subscription. However, you’ll still have access to quite a large chunk of the Dark Knight’s catalog.

The pre-Nolan Batman movies will be free, whether it’s classics like the 1989 Tim Burton release or, er, less-than-well-received titles like Batman & Robin. There’s also a veritable deluge of cartoons, including the legendary Batman: The Animated Series and Super Friends. DC is somewhat choosier with its comics, but this still includes some issues of Detective Comics (sadly not Batman’s debut in #27), Batman and Son and the Superman/Batman series.

Naturally, there’s a hard sell involved. Anyone who’s new to DC Universe can get their first month for 80 cents (get it?) between midnight EST on March 29th and the end of April 4th. It’s clearly hoping you’ll be sufficiently enthralled that you’ll pay for a subscription after the free day is over. Nonetheless, it’s still a relatively pain-free opportunity to see if you’ll like what the service has to offer.

Everything coming to Hulu in April 2019

Happy April!

Catching up on the winter TV you missed? 

Be sure to not skip over I Am The Night on Hulu this month. Starring Chris Pine and India Eisley, this dark mini-series tells the real-life story of Fauna Hodel, a young woman mysteriously connected to the infamous Black Dahlia murder. Sporting one of the most satisfying endings in a period drama, this is one limited series worth doubling back for.

If you’re looking for spring fashion inspiration and a whole lot of drama, search no further than The Bold Type: Season 3. Kat, Jane, and Sutton are back at Scarlet Magazine ready to find themselves, make inside jokes, and complain about New York stuff. What’s not to love? Seasons 1 and 2 are currently streaming on Hulu. Season 3 premieres 4/10.

On the movie front, Hulu’s got a whole slew of options, but none are as tense as A Quiet Place. For viewers who missed out on John Krasinski’s directorial debut in theaters last April, this is a great opportunity to check out the runaway horror success. Just make sure you watch it alone, in the dark, and with headphones. You can thank us later.

Check out everything coming to and going from Hulu in April 2019 below.

Top Pick: Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine (2015)

Ex-CEO Elizabeth Holmes wasn’t the first Silicon Valley star director Alex Gibney profiled, and she likely won’t be the last. 

For streamers in search of more insight into the cutthroat world of tech business after watching HBO’s The Inventor, check out Gibney’s take on the late Steve Jobs. Offering a fairly well-rounded look at the legacy Jobs left both at Apple and in the tech world at large, Gibney tackles one the 21st century’s most perplexing and prolific figures with a deft hand. 

It’s not as juicy as The Inventor, but it’s just as interesting. Check out the trailer:

Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine begins streaming on Hulu April 14.

Crunchyroll raises its monthly subscription price to $7.99

Crunchyroll is announcing its first major price increase since the anime streaming service launched in 2006.

Prices for its premium subscription will go up in the United States, Great Britain, Australia and the Nordics — in the U.S. and Australia, the monthly price will increase from $6.95 to $7.99 (or $79.99 per year), while British subscribers will see their bill go up from £4.99 to £6.50 (or £64.99 per year).

You don’t need to pay to watch Crunchyroll content, but a subscription gives you access to an ad-free experience, simulcasts shortly after a program airs in Japan and full access to the Crunchyroll library.

The company says it has 12 million active monthly users and 2 million paying subscribers.

As for why it’s raising prices after so many years, a spokesperson suggested this is a natural part of Crunchyroll’s evolution, as it has transformed from a site that depended on fans for (often-pirated) content to one that works with all the major Japanese licensors, and claims to hold more than 90 percent of the world’s anime content in its library.

“Crunchyroll has the world’s largest collection of anime and we are grateful to have focused on building out such a robust library for over the last decade, without a significant price change in our company history,” the spokesperson said. “However, due to rising costs of content and infrastructure, now is the time to introduce new subscription pricing. This price increase will help us bring our community more of their favorite shows, allowing us to create even more experiences for them to connect with each other and through shared passion for anime.”

Current monthly subscribers will be able to continue paying their current price for another three months, while annual subscribers will be “grandfathered” at their current price for another year.

This comes amidst broader corporate changes. Following AT&T’s acquisition of the company now called WarnerMedia, it also took full ownership of Otter Media. And WarnerMedia has clearly been rethinking the strategy behind its individual streaming sites as it plans to launch a more comprehensive service later this year.

Amy Poehler would be totally up for a 'Parks and Recreation' revival

'I'll put on my suit again.'

We may now know the reason why a Parks and Recreation revival is yet to happen — and the issue doesn’t appear to be the willingness of certain cast members.

The problem may be that the show’s co-creator Mike Schur is just too damn busy.

“Mike Schur is currently working on about five shows,” Amy Poehler (aka Leslie Knope), told Variety on the carpet for Thursday night’s Parks and Recreation 10th anniversary reunion event. 

The good news? She definitely didn’t rule out the possibility of a return, once Schur has a bit more time on his hands.

“Whenever Mike is ready, I’ll put on my suit again for sure,” she said.

Parks and Recreation kicked off in 2009, then ended in 2015 after seven seasons.

Your move, Mike.
