Tubi TV has added Black Jack 21, the sequel to the 2004 anime adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's Black Jack manga, Yoshiaki Okumura's Monsuno Japanese-animated series, and Osamu Dezaki's 1978 Treasure Island anime.
Black Jack 21 ran from April to September 2006 on YTV and had 17 episodes.

Monsuno premiered on TV Tokyo in October 2012. The series premiered in the U.S. on the Nicktoons channel in February 2012. The 52-episode action series centers around "re-awakened Monster DNA that finds its way into the unsuspecting hands of adventure-seeking boys."

Yoshiaki Okumura (Antique Bakery, Elementhunters) directed the anime at Larx Entertainment. Yuichiro Hayashi (PES: Peace Eco Smile, Sōten Kōro) designed the characters and Shinnosuke (Blue Exorcist, Sorcerous Stabber Orphen) composed the music.
Treasure Island is Osamu Dezaki's 1978 classic anime series based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel. Discotek Media released the anime on Blu-ray Disc in March. The release featured all 26 episodes in 1080p with Japanese audio with English subtitles.
