Steins Gate Hulu HeaderWhile fans of Steins;Gate are waiting for word on the sequel anime series, Funimation is looking to build a few more fans out there for the property as the show has returned to Hulu. Originally streamed back in 2012, the full twenty-four episode series is now available once again in its original Japanese language form with English subtitles. They’ve also kept the first four episodes in the English dubbed format on the service to try and hook people that would then hopefully find it on the Funimation site itself. Those that subscribe to Hulu can watch this show on their TV and mobile devices.

FUNimation has licensed and released the original TV series in North America on DVD and Blu-ray and also holds the license to the 2013 theatrical film, which has not been released yet.

However, their claymore is a hydrator and their hair dryer flips breakers, and the only invention that’s even remotely interesting is their Phone Microwave, which transforms bananas into oozing green gel. But when an experiment goes awry, the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what’s more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences—consequences that Okabe may not be able to handle…
