After a change in simulcast days as requested by the licensor, Rage of Bahamut is now available on Hulu with the first two episodes being released at the same time. FUNimation is currently simulcasting the series on their site for EVS members with it being free to everyone on their site a week later through Hulu. Those with a Hulu Plus subscription can watch this show in HD on their TV, mobile and computer.
The series comes from the card game of the same name but has had little revealed in general about what its plans are and how it intends to adapt the game into this form. The show is being directed by Keiichi Satou at MAPPA using scripts by Keiichi Hasegawa with Naoyuki Onda serving as both character designer and chief animation director.
Plot concept: Two thousand years ago, the black-and-silver-winged dragon, Bahamut, terrorized the magical land of Mistarcia. The humans, god, and demons that inhabited the land united forces against the fiend and sealed its power into a key which was split in two, one half protected by gods and the other protected by demons. Now, Mistarcia is a peaceful realm – until a human woman steals the god’s half of the key. Based on the immensely popular digital card game, Rage of Bahamut is an exciting blend of action and fantasy brought to you by the creators of Space Dandy and Tokyo Ghoul.
