** Be aware that Hulu is very aggressive at detecting attempts to access it through proxies, VPNs, tunnelling services, or any other tools meant to disguise a user's true country of location. It may be playing Whac-a-Mole with such services, but it does so with unparalleled zeal.

** On further examination, ''{{Mushi-shi}}'', ''Anime/BlueGender'', and ''Manga/CorpsePrincess'' are all Creator/FUNimation titles, and are also available on [[http://www.youtube.com/profile_play_list?user=FUNimation their YouTube channel]]. (I was surprised to find that ''SH'' was Gainax's latest series, and that it's STILL AIRING IN JAPAN. Wow. Maybe I'll watch it on Hulu, just for that.) So ''IkkiTousen'' (GONG) is still unexplained (trying to get the panty-shot demographic?) but the rest are. If Bandai Entertainment follows in Funimation's footsteps, we should be seeing Haruhi and TTGL before too long. Now what about ''{{Slayers}}'' and ''OnePiece''?

*** They have ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''Series/{{House}}'', ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', and ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' among [[http://www.hulu.com/browse/popular/tv?timeframe=all_time their most popular series]]. And I don't think ''ShikabaneHime'' really qualifies as a "cult show." ''{{Naruto}}'' certainly doesn't. If they were going for that, you'd think they'd have gotten ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' or something.

* Do they have a strategy with the anime series they're adding? ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', and I suppose ''Manga/DeathNote'' are pretty clear. ''Anime/SpeedRacer'' and ''Anime/AstroBoy'', I guess they're trying to hook the older crowd. But the rest - ''Manga/IkkiTousen'', ''Manga/{{Mushishi}}'', ''Anime/BlueGender'', and ''ShikabaneHime''? What's up with those?

** You can also easily access Hulu (and in general, foreign streaming services) using "hola". You can download it at "hola.org". It's pretty freaking awesome.

** ''BlueGender'' makes sense because it's basically a nerd's dream series. It's ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' with the sex cranked up to 11 and all the satire surgically removed.
