According to press releases from Funimation and Viz Media, Hulu will be host to both the new season of My Hero Academia (also known as Boku no Hero Academia) and the sequel to Naruto, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.

Both series will be premiere in simulcast, meaning you'll be able to watch the episodes the same day they air in Japan. For Boruto the first episode will premiere in simulcast and the following episodes will be timed to weekly Wednesday releases. My Hero Academia will be a little bit easier to follow with the first six episodes guaranteed to become available with their Japanese counterparts and then weekly releases following the first half of the season.

Boruto is the story of Naruto's "rebellious" young son and a whole new generation of shinobi, many of whom are related to the surviving cast of the previous two shows, Naruto and Shippuden. From the trailer and early manga chapters, I get a strong Konohamaru vibe from the character of Boruto and, of course, a hot temper matched with the infinite potential of any decent anime leading man.

My Hero Academia was the smash-hit anime surrounding the story of a young boy who has all the necessary qualifications of becoming the world's finest superhero—courage, pluck, and a winning attitude—except for the that ever-important power. Last season's finale ended with the intense death of a beloved character and eager fans have waited to see the next arc of the critically acclaimed manga come into animated fruition.

You can catch My Hero Academia's second season on Hulu beginning April 1st and Boruto a few days later on April 5th.
