Hulu Gets Anime Streams From Viz Media25 Sep, 2008 By: Chris Tribbey
Online video service Hulu.com will now carry uncut Japanese language versions of three Viz Media properties: “Naruto,” “Bleach” and “Death Note.”
The episodes will be subtitled in English, with “Naruto” and “Death Note” available now, and “Bleach” rolling out later. Hulu offers the videos for free, and has about 200 feature-length feature films and 400 TV series.
“We are very excited to launch ‘Naruto,’ ‘Death Note,’ and ‘Bleach’ on Hulu,” said Ken Sasaki, VP of strategy and business development for Viz Media. “Hulu gives users the ability to customize their viewing experience online. We invite longtime, as well as new ... fans to check out Hulu.com for the exciting episodes that are available for unlimited streaming.”
