The free, legal anime train rolls on as American anime giant FUNimation announced yesterday that video streaming site Hulu would be hosting free episodes of three additional anime series: Peach Girl, Shuffle, and Slayers. Hulu is already host to eleven other FUNimation titles: Black Blood Brothers, Blue Gender, Galaxy Railways, Kiddy Grade, Moon Phase, Mr. Stain on Junk Alley, Mushi-shi, Rumbling Hearts, School Rumble, Shikabane Hime Aka, and XXXHOLiC. Counting in titles from Viz (Bleach, Death Note, and Naruto) and other distributors (Astro Boy, Ikki Tousen, and Speed Racer), this brings the total number of anime series hosted on Hulu to twenty.
I think it's pretty clear by now that if you're not already using Hulu, you SHOULD BE. Free, legal anime? Online? On demand? How could any self-respecting, empty-walleted otaku pass this one up? Any readers already taking advantage of this great offer?[via Anime News Network]
