In a recent press release Funimation announced that it had officially acquired the new Gainax title, Shikabane Hime Aka.

Beginning October 24 Funimation will begin streaming high-quality full episodes of the series through their video sharing partners YouTube.com, Joost.com, Hulu.com, as well as their own video sharing service at funimation.com. There will also be a US$1.99 download option on funimation.com.

"Shikabane Hime (Corpse Princess) is a horror-action anime which tells the tale of a girl named Makina who is one of the living dead. If she is to ever find peace, she must hunt down and destroy her own kind. Aided by a secret society of monks, Makina's quest to rid the world of the undead begins. Makina is voiced by Japanese television star Nana Akiyama."

Couldn't care less about this anime as it's terrible but I'm happy to see Funimation picking titles up so quickly.

I have no problem with this unless the streaming isn't free >_>;
I mean if its supposed to be the same as watching it on TV is should be free right?
= __= I hope only the download will have a cost.

Who said putting it on my FAL team is a bad idea?

Weird that they went right for the worst show of the season.

If you can call this 'the worst show of the season' then you obviously haven't watched Kurogane no Linebarrels. IMO that show is worse.

It will be better with English dubs. The voice acting by the amateur idols sucks. I hate that kind of marketing.

It is underrated, but far from the best FUNi could have taken.

A very progressive move on Funi's part...good to see them thinking outside the box.

A 1.99 an episode to own is a really good price.

You probadly should cry if you like this anime, because I think there's a 50/50 chance that they'll make you pay $1.99 to watch an ep.

Well, didn't expect this to happen. As long as the streaming is free, this could work.

As for the quality of the anime itself, it isn't that bad as most people are claiming it to be.

You have more faith than I. With this news I've already relegated this series to my Dropped list, and what I've got will likely go to the digital oblivion.

I honestly cannot recall Lunar keeping a series after a license report, and this is close enough to it.

What is wrong with you people, this is what we want, Funimation is putting a show on youtube, HULU, Joost, and download to own less than a month after it aired in Japan subbed.

So it has all the qualifications of a good realease, "oh no my fansub group may drop it" GOOD, it is coming subbed leagally to the USA.

The only problem is of the 4 shows I am watching this season this is number 4, not bad but not great.

Ugh, there goes FAL... :'(

I'm happy they grabbed this one though (aside from FAL). It's one of the lowest on my priority list, so it doesn't bother me if subs quit on it. Sorry for everyone else that's worried about it, though.

On-hold for now, I will wait and see how good the stream is before venturing further. Good news for this show though, however undeserved it may be.

Lunar will drop this now, I don't think we have to worry about that. Unless it's a different Lunar?
Lunar already dropped this.

You see, my problem is with that to the USA part. No chance to buy it for those of us in other countries.

Damn, I might have to agree with you on that one. Although I usually don't watch dubs, I have confidence that whoever will be doing Ouri will hopefully be MUCH better than the Japanese VA now.

Are Youtube, Hulu, and Joost all unavailable in non-USA countries?

LOL at everyone who just doesn't want to pay though, since all of those websites are free.

I wasn't crazy about watching this series but I'll check it out since Funi's putting it out there. Glad it's not just youtube, I like Hulu a lot. <3

oh, these little earthquakes

Not unavailable, but obviously the quality will not be the same as the download version's. Not to mention the fact that I'd just like to keep the file on my HD, not just watch it on some site.

The solution to that is easy.

1. Get RealPlayer.
2. Open a web browser in RP (or use your favorite with the plugin).
3. Navigate to a Youtube video.
4. Click the view in high quality button.
5. Put your mouse pointer over the video, a download video button appears in the upper right corner.
6. Wait a bit and you'll have the file on your hard drive.
