We’ve touched on a number of expiring titles recently in terms of streaming, both through Funimation and Hulu’s service, and now WTK has put together a list of Hulu expiration dates for series that have Aniplex involved in them to some degree and could potentially revert back at that point. As always, dates are fluid and can change easily based on a huge number of factors. But if you’ve been holding off on some series that you want to check out that are on the list, both short and long term, keep this in mind.
With 2016 expiring titles, we definitely recommend checking out pretty much all of them, but especially Brotherhood and Birdy the Mighty: Decode.
- – 03/31/16: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
- – 03/31/16: Fullmetal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shamballa
- – 07/31/16: Fullmetal Alchemist
- – 10/14/16: Birdy the Mighy: Decode
- – 10/28/16: Sound of the Sky (via Manga Ent)
