Thought that you were never going to hear from Bandai again once they closed up shop back in January? Well you would be wrong my good sir or madam! You would be wrong indeed because this week a mailer went out announcing that the company has added two titles to the streaming site Hulu.
Sword of the Stranger is the 2007 production from Studio BONES and director Masahiro Ando (CANAAN, Hanasaku Iroha) about a young boy who meets a nameless samurai who is haunted by his past and has vowed to never draw his sword again. When the pair are pitted against a group from China called the Mings, a feudal lord and a group of monks all hell breaks loose in this action drama.
In the 1999 feature titled Jin-Roh, produced by Production I.G, an alternate version of Japan is shown where Constable Fuse is part of an elite police force. After witnessing a girl commit suicide, he is forced to undergo retraining but finds himself serving as a critical link between the Capital and Local police.
If either of these have ever been on your radar before, now is a great time to check out these titles. I hear nothing but good things about both of them!
