Channel 4 is making its on-demand service the home of Anime this autumn.

100 hours of Anime series are being made available for free on All 4 this Autumn, with the first 10 series released this weekend.

The 14 titles in the collection, comprising 285 dubbed episodes, have been selected to "showcase Anime’s diverse range of styles and story-telling", according to Channel 4.

The collection includes introductory titles such as Tokyo Ghoul, Megalo Box and Persona 5: The Animation; nostalgic classics like Cowboy Bepop, Cardcaptor Sakura and Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin; and fan favourites including Gurren Lagann, Kill La Kill and Durarara!!

The Japanese art form of Anime is one of the most popular genres of animation in the world, representing a range of genres, styles and themes. From underground boxing matches to dentists for dragons, from interplanetary bounty hunters to an evil, superpowered school council, All 4’s Anime collection will thrill existing fans and introduce a whole new audience to the genre.

Charlie Palmer, Managing Editor for All 4, said
The Anime collection is a great addition to our growing body of animation on All 4. In making these series available to stream for free, we look forward to introducing a brand new audience to this exciting art form.
