Hulu looks like it’s getting some new anime titles for us this fall. Quite a few, really. And they all look fairly interesting, to say the least.
All you anime fans are going to be in for a treat this October. At least, all you anime fans who have a Hulu account. For everyone else, well, perhaps this might convince you purchase a Hulu account? Or perhaps you could head on over to Crunchyroll if you want free anime and don’t mind ads?
In any case, here’s the full list of Hulu’s anime lineup.
Dragon Ball Super: Complete Season 1 (English Dub)
Dragon Ball Super is the anime adaptation of the manga of the same name by Akira Toriyama. Set 10 years after the defeat of Majin Buu in a quiet, peaceful world; Goku’s wife, Chi-chi, orders him to stop being a bum and find a paying job. Goku takes every chance to avoid this. Meanwhile, Goten and Trunks set out on an epic quest. Their goal? Find Videl the perfect present.

Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon: Series Premiere (English Sub, Simulcast)
Did you know Inuyasha is going to get an anime sequel? Me neither, not until recently. The story of Yashahime goes that twin girls Towa and Setsuna reunite after 10 long years, only to find out that they’re the half-demon daughters of, dun dun duuun, Sesshomaru. Joined by Inuyasha and Kagome’s own daughter, Moroha, the trio set out on a quest to discover their lost past. Hyped yet? As an Inuyasha fan, I approve of this.
