Hulu Removing Over 150 Anime Titles June First

anime on hulu (2)

June is shaping up to be a rough month for streaming fans.

First Netflix announced that nearly 600 movie titles would be leaving the streaming service June 1st.

Now Hulu has announced that a huge batch of anime is being removed from their library as contracts are set to expire next month as well. This comes at a time where Hulu has also lost rights to their Criterion Collection as that movie library will be moving to an exclusive deal with a new streaming service.

As things consider to fracture in the streaming world, anime is of course a top priority for many of the streaming services. The wide array of genres under the anime umbrella contain titles that are popular to appeal to a bigger audience, as well as those that help bring in new subscribers due to difficulties in finding some of rarer titles. In other words, anime has a growing number of streaming services that have found people are willing to subscribe to their service and this is starting to fracture a bit; one centralized hub for a majority of anime titles is seeming less likely to happen.

Hulu has been a major hub for anime fans for quite some time, but as a recent fan post on points out, Hulu is about to lose over 150 titles of both some famous and obscure anime. As Engadget reports, this is likely a purge of titles that are not performing that well on Hulu to justify them paying for the rights to stream it.

Here are the following anime titles being removed from Hulu June 1st:
