Another streaming series is coming to a close soon with Bandai Visual’s stream of the Media Blasters version of Simoun. The twenty-six episode series is currently on Hulu in its original Japanese form with English subtitles and has a slotted June 17th, 2016 expiration date. This definitely gives you plenty of time to check out this very fun title with a yuri angle to it.

Plot concept: In the peaceful theocracy of Simulicram, everyone is born female. At age 17, each maiden undergoes a special ceremony where she chooses her sex. However, only Pairs of maiden priestesses can synchronize with the ancient flying ships known as Simoun needed to defend Simulicram. These Pairs refrain from undergoing the ceremony as long as they wish to keep piloting their Simoun. Aeru is recruited to be a Simoun pilot after a terrifying attack by an enemy nation decimates the squadron known as Chor Tempest. To earn her wings she needs to find her way into the heart of Neviril, Regina of Chor Tempest. But Neviril’s heart still belongs to her previous Pair, lost in the battle when she attempted a forbidden Simoun maneuver.
