Sentai Filmworks had a number of anime series expire on Hulu last year that were distributed by The Anime Network and they’re now coming back online here and there under the Sentai banner directly. The latest to do so is the twelve episode series Samurai Harem, which they originally acquired back in late 2009 and released on DVD back in 2010. The full run is now available in its original Japanese with English langugae subtitles to be checked out and those that subscribe to Hulu can watch this show on their TV and mobile devices.
You can check out our review of the full series here.
Plot concept: His skill with a sword is magnificent, but his social skills still need a lot of work!
After many long years perfecting the art of fighting, 17-year-old Yoichi Karasuma is sent down from the remote mountains where he has been raised thinking that he’s going to study some new martial arts techniques… but what he’s really going to learn about are some slightly more practical things, like electrical appliances, modern clothing and, most especially, how NOT to make girls to want to kill you!
Unfortunately, that last lesson is one Yoichi may not survive, as his new dojo is infested with the infernal creatures in the form of the Ikaruga sisters, and they don’t really seem to understand how “proper” girls are “supposed” to behave! Will Yoichi’s bushido blade be struck down by the fearsome charms of Ibuki, Ayame, Chihaya, and Kagome? Or will the equally lethal girls from the rival Tsubame school be his undoing?
