The Sentai Filmworks pickup of The Fruit of Grisaia earlier this season has netted the show some additional digital distribution, exposing it to more audiences out there that, in the end, can help how it’s eventually released on home video. The latest addition is with Hulu, where the first episode is now live for the series, which you can also watch below. Those with a Hulu Plus subscription can watch this show on their TV and mobile devices under the current licensing restrictions.
Tensho directed the series at studio 8-Bit based on scripts by Hideyuki Kurata while Akio Watanabe will be joining to provide the character designs.
The series stars Takahiro Sakurai as Yūji Kazami, Hiroko Taguchi as Amane Suō, Ryouko Tanaka as Yumiko Sakaki, Kaori Mizuhashi as Michiru Matsushima, Tomoe Tamiyasu as Makina Irisu and Ai Shimizu as Sachi Komine.
Plot concept: Mihama Academy is less of a school and more of a prison. With a massive wall surrounding all sides, this private academy is both protected and isolated from the outside world. But while Mihama Academy may not seem appealing to your average student, it is a safe haven for those looking to hide from the various cruelties that life has dealt them. One such student is the stoic Yuji Kazami, whose closest shot at leading an ordinary high school life lies only within the walls of Mihama. But when Yuji transfers to this untraditional establishment he finds that his chance at “normal” may be further than he thought. As the first male in a school with only five female students, Yuji’s arrival threatens to disrupt the carefully crafted illusion of daily life at Mihama. And as Yuji begins to adapt to life in his new surroundings he soon learns that behind the innocent faces of his classmates hide secrets that are nearly as dark as Yuji’s own.
