I was perusing through some of the recently added tv shows on Hulu the other day (I have Hulu Plus so I can watch on my devices), and noticed that some live action Japanese tv shows have been added for (I believe) the first time.
They seem to be shows also available on the “DramaFever” web site, so let’s hope they catch on and more tv shows become available legally outside of Japan.
I’ll list the shows I’ve found down here and add to it if I see more activity.
In addition to now having the Pokemon and Pokemon Origins shows among tons of other anime:
AKB48 NE-Mouse TV ”AKB48ネ申テレビ” (Season 1) – which is a variety show starring the ubiquitous AKB48 singing group and hosted by grouchy comedian Hiroiki Ariyoshi.
You can also find the following dramas:
Future Diary – Another World “未来日記 Another:World”
Last Cinderella “ラスト・シンデレラ”
Mischievous Kiss “イタズラなキス Love In Tokyo”
Hours of my Life ”僕のいた時間”
A Clinic on the Sea “海の上の診療所”
Switch Girl!! ”スイッチガール！！”
Now, I haven’t seen these yet, but they are in my queue and I’ll be on the lookout for more.
Also, if you are not in the US and looking for a cheap way to access Hulu and american online tv, I recommend trying Hotspot Shield which can also be used on iOS devices and others. Hotspot Shield Elite
