Another day and another dollar for 25-year-old Red-Panda Retsuko. Her modesty and diminutiveness lead to her being exploited by her lazy colleagues and whether it be sexist and misogynistic remarks by her boss and being annoyed by her condescending co-workers Retusko has a unique way of relieving her stress… singing death metal at her local Karaoke bar.

The End of Evangelion (1997)

The End of Evangelion doesn’t serve as a sequel to the series Neon Genesis Evangelion, rather it served as an alternate ending to the story. The film isn’t receiving the Netflix Original treatment as far as we are aware but Netflix acquiring the film could indicate otherwise.

The Plot

The story of End of Evangelion follows much of the structure of the series but offers an alternate ending. For the series synopsis look above.

Runtime: 101 Minutes

Genre: Sci-Fi, Drama

Prior to the release of The End of Evangelion the franchise had a film that consisted of footage from both the series and from the film.

Forest of Piano (Season 2) Netflix Original

Release Date: 24th June
Seasons: 1 | Episodes: 12

2018 was a fantastic year for anime titles on Netflix. Landing in the latter half of the year, Forest of Piano was nothing short of excellent. Despite the CG animation used throughout the Piano playing series, it did not fail to impress.
