‘Barakamon’ Anime Begins Hulu Distribution

2 min read

As the series has gotten a late start on its simulcast from FUNimation, Barakamon has now landed at Hulu for secondary streaming and it’s bringing the first three episodes with it. The show is one that definitely makes out better for having so much at once to start with and could help it to build a bit more of a following outside of the must-see-it-now crowd. Those with a Hulu Plus subscription can watch this show on their TV and mobile devices.

Masaki Tachibana directed the series based on the scripts by Pierre Sugiura with character designs by Majiro. The series stars Daisuke Ono, Junichi Suwabe, Yuuki Kaji, Koki Uchiyama, Nozomi Furuki, Rumi Ohkubo, Rina Endou, Seiya Hirata, Megumi Han, Tanuki Sugino and Fumihiko Tachiki. Kinema Citrus will be handling the animation for the production.

The manga series began in 2009 by Satsuki Yoshino and released its eighth installment last fall in compiled form. Yen Press picked up the series for distribution here earlier this year as well. Satsuki Yoshino has had a few other series running prior to this one with a handful of anthology books and short stories as well as the five volume release of Princess of Mana.

Plot concept: Seishu exiles himself to a small island to recapture his passion for calligraphy after an unpleasant encounter with a critic. While this island hideaway appears to be a tranquil paradise, there are many surprises in store for the young artist.
