Top 13 Best Anime on Hulu Shows
Hulu presents an array of fantastic anime available on its platform. It’s among only a handful of streaming providers to offer Dubbed Gundam shows, and there are many other fantastic choices in addition. Hulu can be a bit humorous for anime. Some shows aren’t complete as Netflix. But, Hulu does have a bad habit of having certain shows that are dubbed (English voices) for a portion of the time and subtitled (Japanese voices and English subtitles) part of the time. We’ll be trying to stay clear of those as much as we can, as it’s a jarring and uncomfortable experience to switch between these two modes. Hulu has an excellent range of anime across different genres. Here are the best anime available on Hulu!
Top 13 Best Anime on Hulu Shows
My Hero Academia (action-adventure)
My Hero Academia is an action-adventure shonen that is among the most well-known of the past half-decade. The show follows an account of a child without any powers, who is later granted powers through the hands of his superhero. The show explores broad issues like evil and good and reflects the superhero culture that’s popular right now. The action sequences on the show are well-done and the story is excellent. It’s still on the air, which means new episodes are coming out for this show. It definitely goes beyond ultra.
Black Clover (fantasy)
“Black Clover is a shonen-style fantasy adventure. It’s at the midpoint of its current run, but there are a lot of episodes on the air at the time of writing. The story is about two men in their teens, one of who has incredible magic powers and the other who has no magic at all. They both join The Magic Knights in hopes of becoming the Wizard King in the future. Many call this Fairy Tail Jr because of the similarity in its structure with guilds and magic users but they could not be more different. Hulu offers both subbed and dub versions, meaning you can choose which you like.
Attack on Titan (action-adventure)
Attack on Titan is an action-adventure thriller that is among the most popular series across North America. It’s about the human race’s last stand and its struggle with the giants. It is a fast-paced and brisk show in the life of a lot of its characters. The continuous battles and suspense make it an enjoyable experience too. The later seasons tend to focus more on the story than action, however, the show doesn’t seem to lose its charm. It’s a classic as long as you’re able to stomach it.
Girls and Panzer (slice-of-life and moe)
Girls und Panzer is an adorable little show about girls who drive tanks to win an annual school competition. It’s more about friendships than a story, but that’s sort of the norm for every slice-of-life show. The girls make their way towards a national championship while forming bonds. There are a lot of fun and zany moments and despite the amazing battle scenes with animated tanks throughout the show, It does not take itself too seriously. Overall, it’s a great show.
K-On!! (slice-of-life and moe)
K-On!! is a slice-of-life-style show about four (eventually five) girls who are part of the school’s music club. They perform music and eat cakes, as well as establish their friendships. K-On is among the shows that contributed to the enormous popularity and popularity of the slice-of-life style in Japan and is an obvious selection on this list. The animation is well superior and the music is also top-quality. It’s adorable, and fun and it’s an absolute must for anyone who loves slice-of-life.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (fantasy)
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is one of the most viewed fantasy-adventure series on Hulu (or anywhere else). The story follows The Elric Brothers as they play using forbidden magic to unravel dangerous plots, and search for the Philosopher’s stone. The show is older but stands up well to modern standards. Hulu has sub and dub versions of the show, therefore you can watch the show however you like. Hulu does not offer an original Fullmetal Alchemist, unfortunately. It’s available on Netflix in both subs and dubs.
Toradora! (drama and romance)
Toradora! is a romantic drama that follows two lovers who have a love for different people. They attempt to hook one another up with their love interests and usually fail. But, they begin to form bonds due to the fact that they spend so much time together. There are a few slice-of-life aspects too but romance is the most significant feature here. The show is well-paced with some great comedy and dialogue. Hulu only offers the version with subtitles, which is unfortunate because there is a dubbed version available.
Food Wars (comed)
Food Wars is a comedy-drama about a teen who enjoys cooking. He is always searching for the most delicious flavor combinations and enrolls at a culinary school to improve his abilities. The story follows his experiences at the school and the drama that goes along with it. There are some hilarious scenes within the show and its lighthearted style makes it a pleasant watch.
One Punch Man (comedy)
One Punch Man is an action comedy about a man with a beard who takes out everyone in one punch. Despite the constant chaos around Saitama, he does not like anything to do with it. The comedy gold is the contrast of creating an epic fight scene and then having Saitama destroy the villain with one strike. Hulu offers season 1 and season 2. Something Netflix is not yet able to offer.
Your Lie in April (drama and romance)
Your Lie in April is a beautifully romantic story about a young boy that plays piano. He loses the motivation to play when his mother dies but finds it when he meets Kaori who is a violinist. Kaori is a wild character and is determined to do nothing else than play the violin alongside our protagonist. The show is 22 episodes and uses nearly every episode to present the story. We won’t give away the end however it’s great to watch for drama and
Love-struck romance lovers.
Danganronpa (mystery and thriller)
Danganronpa is a thriller mystery with a few light horror elements. A group of schoolchildren gets trapped inside a show in which they have to commit the perfect murder in order to escape. They are being watched by Monobear who is the host of the show and principal antagonist. The show has a few punches and offers a fun journey until the final. The show is based on an online game, and there are many other shows that are part of the series.
Blood-C (horror and gore)
Blood-C is an action thriller that incorporates elements of horror. Saya as well as her dad fight an isolated, small town from the ravages of beasts that could take everyday objects that are inanimate and then use them to kill people. Anyone who loves the thrill of death, action, and destruction will definitely enjoy this movie as long as they are able to stomach the idea. We wouldn’t recommend this film to children or anyone who is frightened by seeing blood.
Death Note (mystery and thriller)
Death Note is one of the most popular series on any online streaming platform. It’s a mystery with suspense and horror segments. Students find the notebook which is a death trap when the names of people are written inside the notebook. The prevalence of the show is the hunt for a cat and mouse between a detective and a student. Netflix has been praised for its decision to do the live-action remake, but the show is available on Hulu.
