While there are a lot of streaming providers out there, there’s also some welcome overlap that makes things accessible in some ways that keeps you from having to have dozens of services to pay for. The Anime Network brings a fair number of their shows over to Hulu for streaming, gaining access to a wider audience, and that pays off in drawing people to their site as well who want a heck of a lot more. The latest show to make the leap from them is Gatchaman, which Sentai Filmworks is releasing on DVD and Blu-ray on December 10th. The lengthy show which totals over a hundred episodes has just the first three episodes up at the moment, subtitled and in its original language, but more will certainly be coming as it’s a very strong crossover title that will draw in casual fans. The series has similar distribution as other shows from The Anime Network in that if you have Hulu Plus, you can watch it beyond just your computer and stream it to other Hulu Plus connected devices.
Plot concept: In the near future, the international community is thrown into chaos by a series of attacks by the evil criminal organization known as Galactor, and only the Science Ninja Team Gatchaman is capable of stopping the threat. Hand-picked by the brilliant scientist Dr. Nambu, the five young members of Gatchaman are ready to face the most nefarious plans of Galactor; and win!
