The North American anime distributor Funimation has announced that it has added the Shuffle!, Peach Girl and Slayers anime series to the Hulu online video service this week. Within the past month, it also added Black Blood Brothers, Blue Gender, Galaxy Railways, Kiddy Grade, MoonPhase, Mr. Stain on Junk Alley, Mushishi, Rumbling Hearts, School Rumble, and xxxHOLiC. Notably, Hulu is running Gainax's Shikabane Hime episodes just three weeks after their Japanese broadcasts.
In addition to Funimation, Viz Media and Gong have posted anime episodes on Hulu. Two other competing video services, Joost and YouTube, have slightly different lineups of Funimation anime series, and Funimation.com itself has a rotating lineup of episodes.
