      It actually looks like funimation is only showing those episodes on their website not for free on itunes. Well at least from what I can see on Burst Angel’s itunes store page there’s no free episodes.

      Hulu has a few good anime series (like Mushi-shi) available in very nice quality. They all have english dubs, however, but that’s to be expected.
