Pass...I hate Hulu service. Their UI is pretty terrible on the XB1. Also prices will be going up again now on Funi stuff. Gotta roll that cost for licensing all this new anime into something.

I wonder how bad this will effect the other guys on Hulu like NIS and Sentai that both have content on their. Figured something was coming up with Hulu since Funi was really pushing their crap on there.

The one thing I like about Hulu is that it’s on the Switch. Love watching stuff in bed on the Switch in handheld mode. That display is top notch.

I have Hulu mainly for Western TV shows, not really for anime. Though, I like the convenience of watching it on that display in bed. (Plus, it being 720p makes it razor sharp for both SD content- with minimal upscaling- and HD content. Considering most anime are made in the 720p to 900p range of resolution, it’s a perfect fit)

Hulu supposedly has 1080p streaming available now, but I don't see any way to determine what titles have it. I notice after their most recent website redesign you can't really tell what shows are available in HD and which ones aren't without playing one and seeing what quality options are listed while streaming. Some of the Sentai stuff they have was put up years ago and is only available in SD (not referring to ADV DVD-era).

Sentai Filmworks Announces English Dub for To Love-Ru Anime

Quote:
Sentai Filmworks announced on Tuesday that it will release an English dub for the first anime adaptation of Kentaro Yabuki and Saki Hasemi's To Love-Ru manga.

Sentai Filmworks describes the story:

One should always understand other people's customs before making commitments. Unfortunately, Rito Yuki had no idea the planet Develuke even existed when their Princess Lala teleported naked into his bathtub, let alone that touching a girl's breasts is how they propose marriage!
Given that he was in the tub when she appeared, and slippery soap suds being what they are, Rito's now engaged to a beautiful girl with a pointed tail. Worse, various aliens are showing up on missions of varying hostile intent, the girl that Rito really loves is still completely unaware of his feelings, and all of the new customs he's got to learn seem to involve touching a girl's chest! (Okay, maybe he'll get used to that last one, but he's still in high school and a bit intimidated.) Can a nice boy from Japan become the next King of Galaxy A or will he just end up feeling like a boob?

Sentai Filmworks released the anime on two DVD collections in 2009 and 2010, and again in one collection in 2011. The company released a Blu-ray Disc set in 2014.

I don't really care too much for the series beyond really liking the season 1 OP song (same artist as the opening for Someday's Dreamers 2 which is one of my favourites), but if it means they'll also finally get the OVAs I might get rid of what I do have of the series to get the new set/s. They've only confirmed the first season for now as far as I'm aware but I'm sure it'll sell.

When I said it was 720p, I meant the display on the Nintendo Switch.

Hulu has 1080p streaming, I can confirm that from how it is on my TV.

Well, at least Hulu's inability to implement 5.1 won't hurt them when it comes to anime.

Saiyuki is a steal at that price. Plus, 3 Discs. Because it has lossless audio- Justin doesn’t do it on the Discotek SD-BDs, unless there’s space for it (Nuku Nuku). I love how Sentai is doing Lossless on all- then it’s a real upgrade!

So Votoms is something I've been waiting a while for. Sucks that it's SD only. The TV series and most (if not all) of the OVAs do have Blu-Ray releases in Japan

Just checked and Votoms is only in 480p on HiDive too.

It's another Sunrise show, so maybe if people make a big enough stink about it they'll get the HD rights like with Ideon.
At least with Xabungle, there was no Blu-Ray release.



Edit: Most of this is not correct. See below.

Yeah, for me - this is a must buy. This series it's amazing. I hope for release OAV-s and sequels too

Nope, in Japan release only a few OAV-s for this series on BD. Main series only on DVD.

I was wrong ignore my first post lol.

So I did more research. TV series is completely DVD only.


The Last Red Shoulder 1 episode OVA
Big Battle 1 episode OVA
The Red Shoulder Document: Roots of Ambition 1 episode OVA
Armor Hunter Mellowlink 12 episode OVA
Shining Heresy 5 episode OVA
Pailsen Files 12 episode OVA and Movie

The above don't appear to be on Blu-Ray either.


Phantom Arc (Gen-ei Hen) 6 episode OVA is on Blu-Ray in 6 volumes in Japan.
Case;Irvine 1 episode OVA is on Blu-Ray
Votoms Finder 1 episode OVA is on Blu-Ray
Alone Again 1 episode OVA is on Blu-Ray


Definitely going to pick this up and hopefully they can release the OVAs in one or 2 sets. Maybe a SD OVA set and an HD OVA set.
