Hulu has accrued a lot of anime over the years, so sometimes it’s hard to parse what’s great. This week, Funimation write Anita Schuring previews [C] – Control, a critically acclaimed anime series that’s new to Hulu—and could be one of the best new shows in the genre. — Ed.

[C] – Control is a show that makes you think about money.
Kimimaro is a full-time student working his fingers to the bone just to make ends meet (we can all relate, as we’ve all probably been broke at some point) when, all of a sudden, some freaky dude with a cool cane promises him financial security!
But there’s a catch. His future is held as collateral in a surreal, parallel universe called the Financial District. Sounds like heavy stuff.
The cute but creepy antlered girls are a total bonus, too. There’s something endearing about a stoic girl in adorable clothes that eats cash like a goat—I can’t wait to see what else they do! And if I were Kimimaro, the first place I’d spend some of that dough is at an all-you-can-eat-sushi-on-a-conveyor-belt restaurant.
The intriguing characters and delightfully rapid-fire events in the first episode, plus the fact that [C] airs on Fuji Television’s hot noitaminA block, I’ll definitely invest in what’s next for our industrious Kimimaro.
