Original, uncut Japanese versions of NARUTO, BLEACH and DEATH NOTE animated episodes (subtitled in English) are now streaming on Web video service Hulu.com.
Hulu has more than 100 content partners and offers nearly 900 show and movie titles, including 200 full-length feature films and 400 television series with hundreds of videos added to the service each week. NARUTO and DEATH NOTE launched in the United States on Hulu this week. BLEACH and new episodes of each title will be added regularly on Hulu.
The launch with Hulu is the latest expansion of VIZ Media’s strategy to make available a variety of hit animated series through Web-based, video streaming outlets. Hulu, launched in March of this year, provides free accessibility and offers users the freedom to legally share full-length episodes or clips via e-mail or embed them on other web sites, blogs and social networking pages.
NARUTO, DEATH NOTE, and BLEACH have emerged as three of the world’s most popular Japanese animated series, each attracting millions of devoted viewers with a blend of stylish animation, multi-faceted characters and riveting story lines. Each series is based on a popular manga series and enjoys tremendous international popularity.
