  • With the recent content deal with Disney, Hulu now has the majority of U.S. networks on board its TV and video streaming site. But, with the recent deal, will Hulu run afoul of U.S. anti-trust laws? I sure hope not. Hulu rocks hard and breaking it up seems pointless.

    I’ve seen the first movie and it certainly does look a lot sharper then the anime. Of course, you’d expect that with a bigger budget and about a decade’s worth of advances in animation.

    I still like it though!
