With the upcoming release of the series on September 22nd, 2015 on DVD and Blu-ray from Sentai Filmworks, the distributor is now streaming the Hamatora TV series on Hulu. While we expect the dubbed version to appear down the line in a couple of months, right now we’ve got the full run in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. Those who subscribe to Hulu can watch this show in HD on their TV, mobile and computer. Having just reviewed the series , we definitely recommend checking this one out overall as a whole season work.
