Evangelion Fan Launches Petition Demanding Netflix Fix Its 'Egregious Error'

Fans of Neon Genesis Evangelion have launched a petition asking Netflix to restore 'Fly Me to the Moon' as the show's end credits theme.

"Netflix replaced the ending title song in their English dub of Evangelion," the change.org petition reads. "All other dub languages include 'Fly Me to the Moon,' the proper ending song."

As of writing, the petition is sitting just under 500 signatures. However, the cause has taken off on Twitter, with many expressing their disappointment the new dub not using the original ending song.

Each episode of the original version of Evangelion ends with a different cover of "Fly Me to the Moon," the 1954 Bart Howard song made famous by Frank Sinatra's 1964 recording. A video of all the songs playing one after the other is available on YouTube. Netflix does not seem to have licensed the song for use in North America, though it's seemingly been preserved in Japan.
