As the article, most of these are being streamed via Hulu, similar to many shows on Funimation and Viz's portals. It's just like Viz streaming One Piece.

Well, I have no interest in watching most of these shows online, as the ones I like I already own. I have even less interest in watching them on 4Kids site.

It's good to see more companies streaming though, but it would be nice if they would have some more original material.

And once again, Canada gets shut out. Rolling Eyes

By the way, does anyone else find it extremely hilarious that you can watch Fist of the North Star on a 4Kids site?

Because I don't think it was ever uploaded to Hulu.

The rumor is that the video quality for Airmaster was so atrocious Hulu rejected it.

oh yay, Doremi'll be on there (although, I hope the toonzaki exclusive streams are as good as Hulu. I always hated 4kids.tv's video player)

oh well. I'll check it out once I'm back at home.

wonder if they'll be nice and throw an uncut sub version on their too.

If Fist of North Star can make it then I dont see why not. I dunno if all the giant cutesy eyes and sparkly colors are considered unsafe.

Come on 4kids that's just cheating. So is this need stream site as hard to navigate as their old one was?
On fist of the north star, yeah well Captain Harlock's not that much better with the regular appearances of naked women. You think they would have learned to better screen their titles after One Piece.

Too little, too late.

We still want uncut Tokyo Mew Mew, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Shaman King 4Kids.

Is this just a site that is linking to other videos already. Or are they actually hosting and providing a service to other copyright holders.

If so they must think that its a real revenue stream. Funimation and others would be better off improving there own sites instead of using youtube or hulu.

I makes me laugh (chuckle, rather) that "Toonzaki" is hosting shows that A.) aren't licensed by them and B.) have shows that aren't 100% clean or G rated.

But knowing 4kids, they will mess it up somehow and or do something really stupid and anger the fans in some fashion. In addition, 4kids will probably try to censor the majority of those shows or attempt to make them non violent at all. Which is impossible with Fist of the North Star.

Makes me wonder what Funimation will have to say if 4kids did this without permission,as well as the other companies involved.

4kids can't touch them. They are just embedding the hulu streams like ANN does. Nothing more.

FUNi isn't going to care. 4kids doesn't need to get permission beside signing up with hulu. It is in the contract with Hulu that the shows are available to be embedded by certain parties and it gives both FUNi and Hulu revenue for every view on the Toonzaki site as well.

That is probably the most eclectic list of anime I've ever seen, how did they choose what they're streaming?

I pity any kid that checks out Shiki without knowing it's horror, good show but it would've scared the crap out of me when I was a kid.
