Anime fans rejoiced when Netflix announced during last week's Anime Lineup Presentation event that they would stream Hideaki Anno's megapopular and iconic anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion, as well as Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death & Rebirth and Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion films around the world next spring.

While obviously excited, fans of the original dub voiced concerns over whether the original ADV Films dub would be featured, or if Netflix would choose to re-dub the classic series. As many longtime fans of the series identify Shinji, Rei, and Asuka with the voice acting performances of Spike Spencer, Amanda Winn Lee, and Tiffany Grant, the concern was understandable.

Director for the Evangelion's original dub Winn Lee confirmed that a new dub was in the works, and while disappointed expressed confidence in new director, saying "whatever happens, Eva is in good hands."

Tiffany Grant (Asuka) recently shared a petition, collecting the signatures and messages of fans who want Netflix to feature the original cast. At the time of writing the petition has 1,192 signatures.
