Hulu has provided viewers with a grand and growing selection of movies and shows for various audiences, and now, fans can finally say that the streaming service has included some decent anime within its selection as well. Anime continuously grows as there are several manga and anime being produced every month, and anime viewership is always on the rise.
With anime being so popular in today’s society, Hulu has been able to stream popular anime for viewers who subscribe to their service. There is a lot of anime to choose from on Hulu, and there are even different genres of anime to cater to different tastes!
10 My Hero Academia
My Hero Academia started out as a manga that grew in absurd popularity, and soon after, the manga was turned into an anime TV show. My Hero Academia has quickly become one of the most popular animes in the modern day, and for a good reason!
This starts out with a young boy in a world where the majority of society has some sort of superpower. Unfortunately, this boy doesn’t have power but he still strives to become a hero. This starts him off on an incredible journey full of memorable battles!
9 One-Punch Man
One-Punch Man is very true to its anime name! It features Saitama in a world dominated by superheroes and villains. Saitama was once an ordinary man who decided to train until he could become a hero, and through his training, he became the guy who can beat anyone with a single punch.
Seemingly, Saitama could KO any enemy with a single punch, and this anime is generally Saitama going through his life fighting villains hoping that one day he could find a villain that could withstand his punch.
8 Attack On Titan
Those who are newer to anime or haven’t actually watched anime would have most definitely at least heard of Attack On Titan, and that is because the anime is one of the more popular shows today. In fact, Attack On Titan is one of the most-watched anime in the United States.
Attack On Titan is set in a fantasy world where a city is built surrounded by extremely tall walls. Outside those walls are Titans, which are incredibly large human-like creatures. This show follows the journey of a boy within the city, and soon the thoughtful story grows taller than a Titan ever could stand.
7 Fruits Basket
Fruits Basket is one of the more classic types of anime on this list and is easily regarded as one of the most heartfelt and beloved anime to ever exist. This is a romance anime that any viewer will fall in love with.
Fruits Basket was originally aired in 2001 (Hulu has this version), but it has the remastered 2016 version of the anime that stays true to its roots. This romance anime revolves around a girl who has roomed with two other boys, and soon enough, the anime pulls at heart with an incredible romantic storyline.
6 Demon Slayer
Demon Slayer is another newer anime that has reached to the top, dominating the industry with its masisve viewership. Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba is one of the best-looking anime, as the art style is definitely unique to the show.
This anime is set in a world where demons exist as monsters, who hunt down humans at night. One day, a boy’s sister is turned into a demon, and he sets off on an adventure to cure his sister. This show is emotional, thrilling, and one of the best anime of all time.
5 SPY X Family
SPY x Family is a brand-new anime that has quickly flared in popularity among anime fans. This is generally a comedic action anime that will put a smile on almost anyone’s face. SPY x Family is about a man who has knowledge of things that could disturb the peace on earth, and in order to combat that, he must “pretend to be a family man.”
While doing so, he must infiltrate, sneak around, and lie his way into the political world. Along with him is his “family” that works alongside him in a show with lovable characters and an enjoyable plot.
4 Naruto Shippuden
No anime fan can ever doubt the influence of shonen manga, which is anime that usually deals with martial arts, fighting, and powers, and is notably catered toward an audience of younger males. Naruto is one such anime that set the benchmark for the industry with its exceptional narrative, especially within the shonen genre.
Naruto Shippuden is the original’s show direct sequel, and it takes us ahead a few years when Naruto has to fight some incredible battles in order to pave his way to becoming the leader of his village.
3 Dragon Ball Super
Dragon Ball is no doubt one of the most influential anime to ever exist, as it easily introduced anime to a large majority of North America. Dragon Ball was first aired in the television world in ol’ 1986. The anime still runs strong today, and the manga is even further along.
The newest show of the franchise is Dragon Ball Super, in which the main characters are older, stronger, and way more power-hungry. Goku, who is the show’s main character, is on the hunt to fight the strongest warriors, giving us some of the greatest battle scenes with jaw-dropping visuals.
2 One Piece
One Piece is a part of many anime fans’ “big three.” The “big three” concept is the three best anime shows to hover above other franchises, and, more generally, among shonen anime. One Piece is also one of the longest anime shows, as it has well over 1000 episodes for fans to watch!
One Piece starts off in a pirate-themed world with Luffy, a boy who aspires to become a great “king of all pirates!” In this adventure anime, Luffy will come across many faces, battle against many foes, and claim the greatest treasures known to humankind!
Erased is one of the top anime TV shows of all 2016 and is one of the shows that fans would refer to when suggesting emotional masterpieces. Erased follows a young man who is attempting to make his dream of becoming a well-recognized manga artist come true, but there is something that curses him as he wanders through life.
However, he is pushed back in time whenever something life-threatening approaches him — this happens until “the threat is erased.” The emotional and down-to-earth anime is definitely worth a watch for any anime fan.
