2. Hulu About to PURGE Some Major Anime
It just has not been a great couple of months for One Piece. After Toonami dropped One Piece on March 25th, it was announced recently that Toei Animation’s contract with Hulu will run out on April 28th. One Piece has long been a staple for Hulu since appearing on the website in 2009. This is a major bummer for anime fans and a major blow for Hulu. Such titles as One Piece, Fist of the North Star (avail. on Viewster), Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball GT, Digimon Adventure tri., and Toriko will be removed from the site.
