Originally simulcasting this past spring on Crunchyroll, The Anime Network announced that they would be streaming Fuun Ishin Dai☆Shogun on their service on December 12th. Now they’ve expanded it to another service as all twelve episodes are now streaming on Hulu but have it all live right now. Those with a Hulu Plus membership can also stream it to your connected TV apps and other digital devices. The property is an original work based on the story by Kazuya Sasakura that was handled by JC Staff & ACGT with Takashi Watanabe directing. It’s bringing together giant robots and samurai with a good bit of romance as well by all appearances.
Plot concept: The arrival of foreign ships on the shores of Japan has been thwarted by giant robots called Onigami, and what would have been The Meiji Restoration has been completely erased from history. Now, in this new Japan isolated from the rest of the world, one man has the power to summon forth the might of the Onigami once again… as long as he remains a virgin. But with a beautiful ninja warrior at his side, will Keiichiro be able to focus long enough to defeat the evil forces now threatening Japan?
