‘Intrigue In The Bakumatsu’ Anime Adds Hulu Distribution

2 min read

Intrigue in the BakumatsuAdd another series from Sentai Filmworks that has expanded its audience as Hulu is now showing the entire twenty-six episode series in its original Japanese language with subtitles. The show, which received a bilingual DVD and Blu-ray release from Sentai, is being distributed via The Anime Network to Hulu and it’s available for people who belong to Hulu Plus so it can be viewed directly on a TV with the app on it or other devices. Intrigue in the Bakumatsu is an interesting series in that it’s one of the few shows of real length and depth that was streamed online, at least initially, rather than getting a standard late night broadcast. With the show having a good pedigree coming from Sunrise and directed by Ryosuke Takahashi, it was streamed through the GyaO streaming site back at the end of 2006 and into the winter season of 2007 for a total of twenty-six episodes.

Plot concept: It’s the Bakumatsu, the final years of the Tokugawa Shogunate, and wandering mercenary Yojiro Akizuki travels the length and breadth of Japan. In the course of his quest, he crosses paths with a traveling theater group whose members have their own dark agenda. Is it a chance meeting or the result of some, as yet, undiscovered conspiracy?
