When people think of anime streaming services, they usually think of Crunchyroll or Netflix. And while these all have their individual perks, such as extensive libraries or their own anime originals, Hulu also provides a good experience for anime fans.

In comparison to Netflix, it has more diverse anime titles and they even put some newer anime releases up the day after they air, like Attack on Titan: The Final Season, Spy x Family, and The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2.

It's important to mention that unless you buy the plan without ads you will have to experience those, so if that's a negative for you, you may want to look elsewhere at streaming services like Crunchyroll, who's premium plans are completely ad-free. If you are interested in watching anime, in addition to other TV shows and movies, though, I would highly recommend Hulu, especially if you get their ad-free plan.

Before I get into the list, I want to add Akira, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, Code Geass, and Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood as some of the best anime on Hulu. These, in particular, are talked about and recommended enough that I want to highlight others for various reasons.

I want to mention these well-known, longer running shows as well that you may have already caught up on. If you are new to watching anime, however, these are staples and are also some of the best on Hulu: Gintama, One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Dragon Ball, Assassination Classroom, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and Soul Eater.

Also, be sure to check out all of the anime that's coming in 2022 and all of the anime releasing in 2023 as well to see all of the new anime that's coming to Hulu.

With all that said, here's the best anime on Hulu right now!

Best Anime on Hulu

Best Anime on Hulu - Spy x Family Hulu

Spy x Family

Episodes on Hulu: 12

Sub or dub? Sub only

Why I recommend Spy x Family: Spy x Family, which is adapted from the manga by Tatsuya Endo, is one of the best new anime to release within quite some time. It is one of the most well-adapted series I've watched as of late, and as a huge fan of the manga, I couldn't be happier with how the team behind the anime as well as animation studios CloverWorks and Wit Studio brought the series and its characters to life on screen.

Everything from the thrilling action scenes to the funny expressions of the characters to the heartwarming moments, were faithfully recreated in the first part of Spy x Family Season 1. Part 2 is on its way in the Fall 2022 anime season by the way, so more episodes are on the way soon!

Spy x Family is a story about an immensely charming family that's anything but typical. The father Loid aka Twilight is a spy, the mother Yor is an assassin, and the daughter Anya is a telepath. They were all brought together by Twilight because he needed a family to complete his mission that requires he infiltrate the highly prestigious Eden Academy to get close to his target Donovan Desmond.

This is a family of mysterious misfits that share more in common than they realize; Each with secrets of their own that makes for an interesting dynamic, and this in turn, adds a lot of humor to the dialogue and interactions between them.

There’s a strong juxtaposition between the setting and the overall feel of the series, but this is a large reason as to why it’s so amazing; Underneath it all, it's serious, but it never comes across this way thanks to its lighthearted and humorous approach. Spy x Family is one of the best anime on Hulu right now, but it's streaming on Crunchyroll too if you'd like to check it out.

In other news, Tatsuya Endo's Tista manga, which is about a mysterious female sniper who calls herself Sister Militia, is releasing in 2023!

Best Anime of 2020 - Akudama Drive

Akudama Drive

Episodes on Hulu: 12 (1 season)

Sub or Dub? Sub only

Why I recommend Akudama Drive: Akudama Drive just released last Fall and it was one of the best new anime releases of 2020. While I had high hopes for this one from the get-go, it ended up surpassing my expectations by becoming one of the most profound and emotionally-stirring releases I’ve seen in recent memory. Akudama Drive has a lot of action-packed, thrilling scenes, but there’s so much more to this anime than meets the eye.

Akudama Drive is only 12 episodes long, and while it’s a quick watch, its story develops and builds beautifully over the course of the season. It’s set in a unique and interesting cyberpunk/dystopian world, so it features bold and striking animation, but what really makes this one sing is its characters and the impact it has from beginning to end.

Best Anime of 2020 - Id:Invaded


Episodes on Hulu: 13 (1 season)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Id:Invaded is another series that, like Akudama Drive, just released in the Fall of 2020 and it also ended up being one of the best new anime series of the year. It’s very reminiscent of another one of my favorite series on this list, Psycho-Pass, so if you are a fan of series like these that explore the concept of justice and are crime thrillers, I highly recommend this one as well. While it’s similar in terms of its themes and premise, I want to stress that Id:Invaded is a completely unique series that stands on its own.

Since Id:Invaded explores the mind of serial killers and follows the individuals that work to identify and capture them, there are a lot of dark and harrowing scenes that take place throughout the series that will hit you hard emotionally. Aside from having a well-written and intriguing story, it's exciting to watch the mysteries unravel and you don’t want to miss characters like Narihisago aka “Sakaido'' and Hondomachi in action.

Best Anime on Hulu - Steins;Gate


Episodes on Hulu: 24 (1 season)

Sub or Dub? Sub only

Why I recommend Steins;Gate: Anywhere you look for anime recommendations, you'll see people talking about how Steins;Gate is a masterpiece. And when I hear someone say that, I usually think they are being overly zealous in their assessment, but that's not the case this time around. Steins;Gate is a masterpiece, and while that has been said over and over again, I have to say it again for those of you who have yet to experience it.

Time travel is a subject that usually isn't executed well, especially in anime, but here it sets the example for how it should be done. With time travel comes skepticism and critics, and Steins;Gate is self-aware of that. As you watch more and more of the series, you will find yourself less a skeptic and more a believer, and that's really what makes this series so successful.

The idea that the person who discovers time travel is a cooky, paranoid, "mad scientist," is something that has been explored before, but while Okabe's personality is built from this stereotypical profile, there's a gentleness and magnetism about him that makes him stand apart. Science is meant to be empirical, but it is emotion that drives Okabe to carry out his research, and this is what makes Steins;Gate's story so enveloping and twisted.

Complexity is something that Steins;Gate has a lot of, but the story doesn't get lost in all the details, which there are a lot of. It gets pretty science-y, but its not like some lecture hall discussion; It's members of a lab who also happen to be comrades working out a puzzle, but also experiencing life together.

Steins;Gate is full of characters with personalities you'll love, particularly all the people associated with the lab, like Okabe, Kurisu, Mayuri, and Daru to name a few. The dialogue throughout is amazing. All in all, it is the strong bonds that forms between the characters that bring this anime all together.

The main reason I wanted to mention Steins;Gate is because it is somewhat of a slow-burn for the first 10 episodes, but it really changes pace after that point. With that said, the first 10 episodes allow the story to evolve in a way that makes it really impactful, so this pacing serves a purpose.

For those of you who may have dropped it early on or have yet to watch it, I wanted to make sure this was something you are aware of. Keep going, because it really is one of the best anime ever created.

Best Anime on Hulu - Hunter x Hunter

Hunter × Hunter (2011)

Episodes on Hulu: 79 (2 seasons)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Hunter × Hunter: With complex relationships, unique characters, and profound arcs, Hunter × Hunter is one of the best anime to watch anywhere, let alone on Hulu.

The story follows Gon on his adventure to find his elusive Dad and become a Hunter. Along the way, he makes new friends and fights some of the most riveting enemies in anime.

One of the main things I like about Hunter × Hunter is that it has many different arcs that all feel fresh, because they take inspiration from different genres of anime. Of course, Hunter × Hunter is a shounen at its core, but arcs like the Greed Island arc, for instance, is one Isekai fans will enjoy. Point is, it has something for everyone.

I've said this before on a previous post, but I almost dropped Hunter × Hunter early on in the Hunter Exams. I'm glad I didn't, because I would have missed out on one of my favorite anime of all time. With that said, the story does take some time before it amps up, but stick with it because it will make up for it in ten-fold later down the road.

You can learn more about what we thought of each arc in Hunter x Hunter in our Hunter x Hunter Arcs Ranked post!

Best Anime on Hulu - The Promised Neverland

The Promised Neverland

Episodes on Hulu: 23 (2 seasons)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend The Promised Neverland: The Promised Neverland will tear out your heart, put it back in, then tear it out again. And I know that doesn't sound pleasant at all, but with an anime where everything is not as it seems, you are bound to have some dark times ahead of you.

The Promised Neverland's ability to create tension and suspense is some of the best I've seen in anime. The manga as a whole is better than the adaptation in terms of its story and development, but as far as the art and atmosphere go, they did it justice. Regardless, I personally still think it is one of the best anime to release in 2019.

The thrills and chills that you'll experience as you cheer on the orphans of Grace Field House is something any anime fan should experience, especially those of you who love horror and psychological thrillers.

Best Anime on Hulu - Death Parade

Death Parade

Episodes on Hulu: 12 (1 season)

Sub or Dub? Sub only

Why I recommend Death Parade: In Death Parade, people are judged not only for the lives they lived, but also the choices they make following their death. "Visitors" arrive at a bar without any context as to how they got there. As far as they are concerned they are alive, but little do they know, they are already dead. And it is the job of arbiters, like Decim, to determine whether their souls will be reincarnated or cast into something ominously called "the void".

In twisted games lead by the arbiters, the guests of the bar will be pushed to the edge of their humanity. When it comes down to it, how will they act when they are faced with the choice between life or death? Meant to draw out the worst or best in these individuals, these games are designed to show the true colors of the souls who are playing them.

As you watch these people struggle, you begin to empathize with them. Some of the guests stories really blur the lines between good and evil. You'll begin to question whether these people are truly bad or not, and realize it's not just their actions that matter, but also their reasoning behind them.

Moral dilemmas, like these, make Death Parade a mentally-stimulating watch, but it's the emotions you'll feel over the course of the series that will resonate the most.

Best Anime on Hulu - Fire Force

Fire Force

Episodes on Hulu: 36 (2 seasons)

Sub or Dub? Dub only

Why I recommend Fire Force: Fire Force is receiving some criticism, because people don't think it is as good as Soul Eater, which was also created by Atsushi Ōkubo. And while I agree that Soul Eater is better, I decided not to compare the two so each could shine on their own. Yeah, one flame is brighter, but that shouldn't stifle the others flame, which is also bright as well.

I do want to say that Fire Force didn't hook me until the 2nd half of the first season; It was here that you get some backstory and context as to why Company 8's members joined the Fire Force. I personally find the whole premise of fighting fire with fire as well as the world Fire Force exists in to be unique. It's a story full of conspiracy and tragedy, and while it's one that develops slowly, it does pick up later on.

I also found the characters of Fire Force to be interesting. Shinra is hot-blooded and wants to be a hero, even though people call him a devil. Arthur thinks he's a knight and wields Excalibur, which has plasma in place of the blade. Some of the characters have child-like delusions because they were forced to grow up fast, and I found these quirks to be both humorous and endearing. The interaction between Arthur and Shinra, in particular, is entertaining; It's somewhat similar to the relationship you'd see between characters like Natsu and Gray.

Fire Force, like a lot of anime, centers around a band of misfits coming together for the same cause. Each have their own demons, but you'll watch them rise out of the ashes to become better, stronger version of themselves, and that alone makes Fire Force worth the watch. The story mainly follows Company 8, but you'll meet likable characters from other companies, such as Benimaru along the way. One of the best fights in the entire series involves Benimaru, so that is something you have to look forward to.

The way the fights are animated make Fire Force a true joy to watch. The powers of each character, even the supporting ones, are intriguing in their own ways, especially when they go head to head with their enemies. Another highlight of the animation is the depiction between light and dark that is shown in the scenes. The use of highlights and shadows is beautifully done, and it is details like these that make the visuals in Fire Force so striking.

Fire Force is by no means perfect. The first season takes some time to ramp up as with many other anime, but it's still one of my favorite releases to come out last year. In the second half, everything starts to heat up, so don't give up on it before then. It deserves more credit than it has received and I really hope you give this one a chance if you haven't already.

Best Anime on Hulu - Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Episodes on Hulu: 37 (2 seasons), all 7 episodes of the Mugen Train Arc are also on Hulu

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon Slayer is one of the best anime to come out in 2019, and while it didn't surpass releases like Dororo or Vinland Saga for me that year, it came close.

The one thing that really stands out about Demon Slayer is its bold art style. When you see it, its character and charm is unmistakable. Instead of blending in, it seeks to stand out in anime, and in that regard, it is unrivaled.

Demon Slayer's story feels familiar since it is a tale of demon slayers vs. demons, but it provides a fresh take. Its narrative is one of its biggest assets; You'll experience moments that will break your heart and others that will warm it. The fights are dynamic and exciting to watch, so there is a lot of action throughout as well.

Demon Slayer's animation is among the best on this list, and while some push it off as nothing other than a visually-appealing anime, it's much more than that. Yeah the anime is eye-catching, but it is Tanjiro and Nezuko's relationship and journey that make Demon Slayer amazing; These two light up the dark world they live in and their story is moving to witness.

Best Anime on Hulu - Kaguya-sama: Love Is War

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War

Episodes on Hulu: 12 (1 season)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Kaguya-sama: Love Is War: As someone who commonly watches anime with pretty depressing themes, I need a pick-me-up every once in awhile. I just so happened to stumble upon Kaguya-sama: Love Is War in between shows, and was happily surprised with how much I enjoyed the series. It even ended up becoming one of my top anime of 2019.

It made me laugh throughout, and while it doesn't do anything miraculous story-wise, you just have to love it for what it is. If you are looking for an entertaining and fun watch this anime is for you, but if you are looking for the next most profound anime, probably not so much.

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is predominately a rom-com, and while it has a few stereotypical moments you've probably already seen before in the genre, its take on love isn't like the rest.

Telling someone you love them isn't easy, but it especially isn't for Shirogane and Kaguya. They are both rivals at their elite school, and while they respect one another, they hate admitting defeat. And what would be the greatest defeat of all? Admitting their love for one another. Whoever confesses it first will be considered the loser. This forms a game between the two as they try to force the others hand and get them to admit their true feelings.

I personally enjoyed the premise, because it turns something as seemingly simple as love into an intense chess match between two intelligent and talented individuals. The mind-games between the two is reason enough to watch this anime.

Watching them behind the scenes as they struggle to hold back their love for one another is also endearing and heartwarming to watch. Apart from all of that, the animation is top-notch as expected from the studio behind it, A-1 Pictures (Black Butler, Sword Art Online, The Seven Deadly Sins).

The one criticism I have is the narrator, who can get kind of tiresome. Not as bad as ones like heard in Hunter × Hunter since he actually serves somewhat of a purpose in this show, but annoying at times nonetheless.

I realize it might seem funny to include Kaguya-sama: Love Is War on a list with shows like Steins;Gate, but I personally appreciate the other side of anime that, while not as deep, provides you with a fun time nonetheless. Kaguya-sama: Love Is War deserves more credit than it is given. It manages to stand out in a genre that's known to rehash things. And while it's not going to make you think about your existence or ponder the world, it's a refreshing watch.

Best Anime on Hulu -Kill la Kill

Kill la Kill

Episodes on Hulu: 24 (1 season)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Kill la Kill: I've talked about Kill la Kill before on the site, but I feel I can't talk about this anime enough. It follows Ryūko Matoi on her quest to find her father's killer. To do that, she must first defeat all of her enemies at Honnouji Academy, some of which are armed with "Goku Uniforms", which give superhuman capabilities to those who wear them.

Ryūko later finds herself with a special uniform (a "Kamui,") of her own named Senketsu. Together, Ryūko and Senketsu will fight their way to the top to find the answers she is after.

What ensues in Kill la Kill is absolute madness; It's over-the-top, but this is what makes it so enjoyable to experience. Ryūko is a badass, but there's also a softer side to her that I really like. While the fights/action scenes are a main contributor to its appeal, it's the story and the plight of the characters that make this anime one of the best.

I also want to note that there is a lot of fan service, so if that's not your thing, I feel you. But, there's plenty of substance in this anime, so it's worth pushing through these moments. Its excessiveness doesn't cheapen its story by any means, which is a true feat for any anime, let alone Kill la Kill to pull off.

Best Anime on Hulu - Mobile Suit Gundam 00

Mobile Suit Gundam 00

Episodes on Hulu: 50 (2 seasons)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Mobile Suit Gundam 00: Aside from Iron-Blooded Orphans, which I'll talk about next in this post, Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is my favorite in the franchise.

The series follows Celestial Being and its Gundam Meisters, Setsuna, Lockon, Allelujah, and Tieria, who are fighting to change the world. They want to make the world a better place where war no longer exists, but ironically to do so, they are going to have fight.

In Gundam 00, all of the characters and the reasons they fight are complex. They have a moral compass, but all are willing to bend it for the sake of humanity's future. The struggles from their past that lead them on this path resurface along the way, and you watch these characters not only fight those who stand against them, but also their own demons.

With interesting characters and a strong premise, Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is one of the best series in the Gundam franchise. This is one that any anime fan will enjoy and I highly recommend you catch it on Hulu while you still can.

If you are looking to get into the Gundam universe, but don't know where to start, check out our Mobile Suit Gundam Watch Guide!

Best Anime on Hulu - Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans

Episodes on Hulu: 50 (2 seasons)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans: Out of all the series in the Gundam universe, Iron-Blooded Orphans is my favorite. Why? Partially because of its story, style, and characters, but mainly because it's grittier and more visceral than the others.

If you you feel intimidated by the 40-year history of the Gundam franchise, I highly recommend you give Iron-Blooded Orphans a chance. You don't need any previous knowledge to understand it as its a completely stand alone story.

Tekkadan and their push for a better future is one to behold, whether you are a fan of mecha anime or not. As expected, there is a ton of action in the series, but its full of substance as well as it tackles large issues like poverty, war, and child soldiers.

I highly recommend giving Iron-Blooded Orphans a shot if you haven't yet, because its characters, world, and plot are among the most well-developed I've come across yet.

Best Anime on Hulu - Psycho-Pass


Episodes on Hulu: 33 (2 seasons)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Psycho-Pass: As far as world-building goes, Psycho-Pass is one of the best. Set in the future, where something called the Sibyl System exists, humans are monitored and judged by their "Psycho-Pass", a number that determines a person's threat level to society.

In this society, those who's "Psycho-Pass" labels them a "latent criminal" are destined for a life of judgement and imprisonment, but a select few have been given the opportunity to become Enforcers. But, this "freedom" they are granted comes with a leash, dubbing them the hunting dogs of the Inspectors who watch over them.

They do all the dirty work to keep their Inspector's mind, and therefore, their "Psycho-Pass" clear. You couldn't have hooked me more with a premise. This world is one where justice is supposedly dealt by an objective hand, but everything no matter how perfect it seems has a flaw. Since everything isn't as peachy as it appears, Psycho-Pass is the ultimate dystopian story.

As mentioned prior, it is one of the best at world-building in all of anime. Everything about this futuristic society is thought out from the tech to how the government would rule and its people would live. The gun the Enforcers use, called a Dominator, is the most badass weapon I've seen in all of anime. Every detail transports you into a different time and place, and you really feel like you are a part of Psycho-Pass' world as you watch it.

Characters, like Enforcer Kogami, Inspector Akane, and main villain Makishima, and their interactions with one another, are compelling. The dialogue is amazing and the moral dilemmas presented prove just how easy it is, even for a good person, to cross the line. Crossing the line, and the difference between who's good and who's bad, is the main issue explored here, and it's done really well.

It's also not afraid to get violent and bloody, which I appreciate. Many anime tip-toe carefully when it comes to dark subjects, but Psycho-Pass is one of the few that isn't afraid to delve deep into the abyss. All in all, it has some of the most interesting episodes I've ever seen, and it's one you definitely don't want to miss on Hulu, or any other streaming service for that matter.

Best Anime on Hulu - Erased


Episodes on Hulu: 12 (1 season)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Erased: Erased is a murder mystery, psychological thriller, and supernatural story wrapped into one anime, making it quite the triple threat. The story follows Satoru Fujinuma, a struggling manga artist, who's gifted with a phenomenon he calls "Revival".

At first, he time travels only minutes before a negative event is about to occur, but he is later accused of murdering someone he knows, which causes him to leap back 18 years in the past to his childhood home.

Satoru suspects that in order to find the murderer from his future, he will have to solve the murders that occurred in his hometown, particularly his classmate's Kayo Hinazuki. Basically, to change his future, he must first change the past, and this makes for a really interesting story.

As you watch Satoru, who's 29-year old brain is now trapped in his adolescent self, relive the events that unfolded from his childhood, you are pulled into his world. It's almost like a memory reel; He remembers himself experiencing these things, but his mature mind sees details and pieces of the story clearer than he did before. It's intriguing to see him walk through 1988, almost like he's an imposter in his own timeline.

As the story twists and unfolds, you follow Satoru and his friends as they journey to find the real killer behind the murders and abductions that plague their small town. And with kids behind this thriller, it's even more entertaining watching as they work try and solve the mystery, and even more so, save their classmates.

You'll see the best and worst in people in Erased. It's a heartbreaking story, but it's one of the most touching anime I've watched as well. From start to finish, Erased is one of the best to ever be released. There isn't a single bad episode in the series, and that's something I've said about few anime. To give you an idea, Steins;Gate and Terror in Resonance, which are also on this list, are the only other anime I've made this claim about.

Best Anime on Hulu - My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia

Episodes on Hulu: 109 (5 seasons)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend My Hero Academia: My Hero Academia is not underrated. In fact, it's well-known and popular, so while I don't feel it needs an introduction, its presence needed to be felt on this list. Why? There are a lot of people out there that push MHA to the side simply because they don't like how mainstream it is.

If that's you, I really hope you give My Hero Academia a chance. It isn't just some childish, run-of-the-mill superhero story like you'll read on some Reddit threads. Yeah, sometimes it falls within the tropes that are commonly found in action-based anime, but the same can be said for any shounen.

And while it does have a bubbly presence most of the time, there are darker themes, like human experimentation explored within the seasons. You aren't going to get blood and gore--although you do get some of that in the manga in comparison to the anime--but you are going to witness some great action-scenes/fights and follow a great story along the way. And as far as characters go, both the villain and hero sides have interesting backstories, development, and quirks. The villain's backstories are just now coming into play in Season 5, so it's about to get that much more interesting.

One final point I have to mention is that I appreciate the fact that the characters in MHA aren't invincible, even the world's number one hero. The humanization of these larger-than-life heroes make them that much more relatable and likable.

It's an all-around well-developed anime that I highly recommend to anyone, especially those of you who haven't given it a chance or are just getting into anime.

Best Anime on Hulu - Terror in Resonance

Terror in Resonance

Episodes on Hulu: 11 (1 season)

Sub or Dub? Sub only

Why I recommend Terror in Resonance: Terror in Resonance is one of my favorite anime of all time, and for good reason. For starters, it's story is tragic, exhilarating, and powerful. And most importantly, it shows that, at the heart of it all, we all just want confirmation that we exist. Without that, are we even alive?

The series is about a string of terrorist attacks carried out by masked figures the world knows as "Sphinx", but we know them as Nine and Twelve. These two boys have a tragic message they are trying to convey with their attacks, and they enlist Detective Shibazaki to uncover the hidden meaning behind it all.

This is another anime on this list that makes you question who's really good and who's really bad. In the end, someone's reasoning for doing something matters just as much as the action itself. You'll find yourself rooting for what most people would label the "bad guys".

There's a game of cat and mouse that also ensues, and more developments over the course of the season, that will hook you even further. When I first watched Terror in Resonance, I completed it in one sitting, because it is good at making you want to find out more. If that's not testament to how amazing it is, I don't know what is.

Aside from it being an exhilarating watch, it will dig its way into your heart. Nine and Twelve's story is one I'll never be able to forget no matter how much time has passed since I've seen it. And if that wasn't enough to hook you, Terror in Resonance's animation, choice of scenes, and music are phenomenal.

Best Anime on Hulu - Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan

Episodes on Hulu: 75 (4 seasons)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Attack on Titan: As one of the best anime to release in recent times, it's no surprise that Attack on Titan is on this list. Much like others on this list, AOT features a world that's captivating, but what sets it apart is how terrifying it is thanks to the titans that reign outside humanity's walls.

The lore alone is enough to make Attack on Titan worth watching, but it's the plight of the characters within the Survey Corps and their journey(s) that really hook you.

With a perfectly developed story that is full of mystery as well as discovery, Attack on Titan is one of the most well-rounded anime you can watch. It's bloody and gory, but it's also full of substance.

On top of all that, the animation is some of the best I've seen. The movement of the characters, especially when they maneuver with their gear, is something to behold. The scenes are impactful and highly effective in the way that they not only grab your attention, but also give you goosebumps. Also, Attack on Titan, Season 3 (Part 2) is one of the greatest showings in anime to date, so you have that to look forward to.

Attack on Titan is just one of those anime you can say hardly, if anything, bad about. Yeah it's popular, but it's popular for a reason. It deserves every bit of praise it gets, and it's definitely as good, if not better, than everyone says it is.

Best Anime on Hulu - Death Note

Death Note

Episodes on Hulu: 37 (1 season)

Sub or Dub? Sub and dub

Why I recommend Death Note: Death Note has a unique and thrilling storyline that puts it in a world of its own.

It's a story about Light Yagami, who finds himself with immense power thanks to the Death Note--a notebook that allows the user to kill a person simply by writing their name it as long as they've also seen their face.

Since he envisions a world where crime is a thing of the past, Light takes justice into his own hands and starts dealing punishment via the Death Note. This attracts the attention of law enforcement, who enlist L to capture him. What then ensues is a game of cat and mouse between L and Light.

As two incredibly intelligent and strategic individuals, L and Light's battle is one of wits. And even though there's no hand-to-hand combat or physical fights, the battle between these two minds is not short on action or suspense.

The most exciting thing about Death Note though is its take on moral dilemmas. With great power comes great responsibility, but when said power gets put in the hands of high school student who thinks he's a god, lines are bound to be crossed. It's just a really interesting premise, and you'll find yourself more and more captivated as the story unravels.
