The Best Anime in Hulu We Should be Watching Now!

We enjoy anime shows in different ways.  The majority choose to watch via free websites and the reason why is very obvious.  Why pay for something you can have for free?  But we can all agree that doing so will not help the anime industry other than spreading its popularity.  I too am guilty of this selfish act.  I really can’t spare a few dollars to pay a monthly subscription to watch anime on premium video-hosting websites like Hulu knowing that there are other important bills I need to settle.  Talk about the dark side of being an adult.  I really envy teens living in first world countries who can buy whatever they want and enjoy other privileges that money brings.  But that’s another story.  Going back to the main topic, paying to watch anime shows is a legit way to give back to their producers and writers.  It’s a way to help them earn and encourages them to do more.  So if you belong to the lucky group of people who can buy the latest iPhone model without even looking at its price tag, then you should not hesitate to subscribe and watch the best anime in Hulu.

There are hundreds of anime titles in Hulu so finding one that perfectly suits your taste might be a bit daunting.  But worry not my rich otaku friend because I created this list of the best anime shows on Hulu especially for you.  Enjoy and I hope you find one that will either rekindle your love for anime or deepen it to the point that you’ll read my other articles and support fellow Otakus!

 

 

Hunter X Hunter

 

This anime show tackles the beauty of friendship and freedom.  It follows the story of Gon Freecss, the son of Gin Freecss, one of the most influential Hunters in his era.  A Hunter is an individual who possesses unique skills which he uses to explore new boundaries in his chosen path.  He can be at the frontier of creating new food recipes or be the deadliest assassin there is.  Gin is an explorer so he left Gon as a child and went on to new adventures as a Hunter. When Gon was old enough, he set off from his home island to be a Hunter and know what makes it worth leaving your only child for.

 

 

Attack on Titan

 

An apocalyptic theme is common in anime.  Even so, almost all the anime shows that chose to follow this common path succeeded in getting enough fan-base to go on for a couple of seasons.  A good example is Attack on Titan.  It was a very popular manga series and its anime adaptation gave way for its fans to even grow by the millions worldwide.  So is it worth the hype?  To be honest, I’m not really a huge fan of Attack on Titan but I watched several episodes with a friend who enjoys it so much.  And I can say that it’s brutal and action-packed.  If you’re into gore, tragic deaths, and unpredictable series of events then this anime show is the right one for you.

 

 

Cowboy Bebop

 

Let’s forget about recent anime shows for now and focus more on their great-grandparents.  Anime shows like Trigun, Voltes V, and Yu Yu Hakusho started it all. But the anime genre was very limited back then.  Most of the anime shows lean toward fantasy were the main protagonists have special powers and need to embark on a dangerous adventure to either save his love interest or free his kingdom from a demon king.  Cowboy Bebop chose to avoid this cliché and told the story of a bounty hunter.  He doesn’t have special powers but his gunslinging skills and laidback attitude easily captured the hearts of anime fans.  If you’re looking for a retro anime that perfectly combined humor and action, be sure to put Cowboy Bebop at the top of your list!

 

 

One Punch Man

 

How powerful do you need to be to finish off every enemy with just one punch?  I don’t really have the answer to this question but you can ask Saitama, the main protagonist of the hit anime how entitled One Punch Man.  So what is One Punch Man all about?  The title says it all.   It showcases the life of a hero who can basically finish his job with just one punch.  He claims that he gained his insurmountable strength by simply doing basic physical training every day.  Like everyone who he shared his story with, I don’t believe it’s all that simple.  It’s more likely that he is not human and carries the blood of an alien race which can be compared to gods.  Watch One Punch Man in Hulu if you want to know more about Saitama and who knows you might think of a better guess than mine about the origin of his power.

 

 

Haikyuu!!

 

Volleyball is a famous sport so I started to wonder several years ago why an anime show based on it was still nowhere to be found.  Is volleyball not good enough?  Well, Haikyuu!! answered all my questions.   It’s an exciting anime about high school volleyball.  It’s realistic unlike other sports anime shows that exaggerate in-game strategies and techniques. You’ll not only enjoy heart-pumping volleyball action but learn interesting ideas on how to play better which you can apply to your next game.   It’s also a perfect anime show to binge on since it already has three seasons and the 4th one has been given a green light.  Every volleyball fan should watch Haikyuu!! and experience their favorite sport in a way only anime can deliver!

 

 

Naruto Shippuden

 

You can’t be called an anime fan without watching at least a single episode of Naruto.  I know the original series already ended and now they came up with a new one that features Naruto’s son but we should never forget that it was one among the few anime shows that started the craze.  I can still remember my friend recommending it to me when I was just in college like it was yesterday but it has been more than a decade now and Naruto has come a long way and managed to influence millions of anime fans across the globe.   If you are among the few who skipped Naruto, particularly Naruto Shippuden for any reason valid or not, now is the time to redeem yourself. Watch it and just thank me later.  It’s one of the best anime in Hulu for a reason.

 

 

Fairy Tail

 

Have you ever wondered how our world would look like if magic exist?  Don’t worry if you lack imagination to picture it all out since that’s why anime shows are for.  One good choice for this purpose is Fairy Tail.  This anime show features the struggles and triumphs of a renowned Magic Guild known as Fairy Tail.  They are often called to do dangerous missions and they never fail to deliver positive results.  This shows how powerful the Fairy Tail members are but what others often fail to realize is that this guild is not just a simple gathering of strong magicians. They are effective not just because of individual strength but mainly due to their teamwork.  Every Fairy Tail member treats their companion as family that is why they never leave anyone behind and would gladly face danger and defy their limits if it would mean saving a comrade and accomplishing the task at hand.  If you’re a fan of anime shows that center on friendship and other good values while offering intense magic battles here and there, Fairy Tail is perfect for you!

 

 

My Hero Academia

 

They say heroes are made, not born.  This famous quote is probably one of the inspirations behind My Hero Academia.  This increasingly popular anime shows follows the journey of Izuku Midoriya.  He is a normal child who like everyone else aspires to be as great as the hero they idolize.  Nevertheless, there is one huge obstacle in front of him in realizing this dream.  He is not talented nor does he have the strong and resilient body heroes normally have.  Any of us would naturally give up in this situation but Midoriya is different.  He has what it takes to be a hero in his own right because of his passion.  He does not take no for an answer and would do anything just to defy everyone’s expectations.  I know you’re rooting for him to be one of the greatest heroes someday and he probably will.  Why not watch his growth from the start?  Watch My Hero Academia now and get on board the hype train along with millions of anime fans across the globe!

 

 

Tokyo Ghoul

 

Can a monster be lovable?  I know it sounds impossible but it is the case with Kaneki, the main protagonist in the hit anime series Tokyo Ghoul.  How did he become a monster?  Is it something activated from anger like other typical anime characters with split personality?  Don’t continue reading if you don’t want to be spoiled.  Kaneki started out as a normal human being.  Ghouls exist in his world and humans are wary of them but Kaneki was living a normal life thinking that being attacked by Ghouls is the least of his problem.  But after several events, Kaneki found himself being attacked and almost eaten by a female Ghoul. He was saved by an unknown person but the cost was severe.  He ended up with Ghoul body parts inside him so he is now half-human half-ghoul.    Can he still live normally despite his unique condition?  Which side should he choose in the battle between humans and ghouls?  There’s no better way to answer these questions than by watching Tokyo Ghoul!  I highly recommended it especially for those who love protagonists who are both compassionate and brutal.

 

 

The Devil is a Part-timer!

 

If you’ve been reading by recent articles, you can attest that I’m an Overlord fan. But before Overlord, my favorite anime series is The Devil is a Part-timer.  For me, it is better even compared to mainstream anime shows like Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece.  And like everybody else, I’m still waiting for The Devil is a Part-timer to be continued.  There are just too many questions left unanswered and interesting plot twists that it has to offer.  So why do I love it so much?  The Devil is a Part-timer! offers a complete viewing experience.  It has action, drama, humor, and even romance.  What else would you ask for from a show to be entertained?  I have yet to find an anime series that entertained me as much as the Devil is a Part-timer did.  Well if you have recommendations please do share them in the comments section below.  Who knows you might have encountered a rare gem that I skipped for some reason.  And I’ll be sure to thank you in my next post.

 

To some, watching anime is a complete waste of time.  I advise those who think this way to ease up on the criticism and don’t judge the hobby without even trying it.  No matter what you guys say, watching anime is fun for me and my fellow Otakus.  And what else do we seek in this world other than happiness?  We have different ways to have fun and it just happens that watching anime is what gives us joy and excitement amidst this chaotic and often depressing world.  To all my Otaku friends out there, don’t let others stop you from doing what you love.  As long as you do it in moderation, you’re completely fine.  Remember that anything, how beautiful it might be, if done in exaggeration can lead to negative consequences.  As always, don’t forget to give this article a LIKE and continue to SHARE THE ANIME LOVE MINA!

Opposite attracts.  This is a common quote pertaining love.  And as we all know, a lot of heartwarming anime love stories started when the couple are in their high school years.  This is the point in life when you are old enough to start feeling attraction towards the opposite sex yet still immature to be shy about it which results to awkward and funny situations.  These wonders of puppy love composed most of the highlights in the anime series Toradora!

Kimi ni Todoke

If an anime show is based on a novel that has been adopted in both manga and in television, expect nothing but a good time.  Kimi ni Todoke is a wonderful love story between a shy and conservative girl and a popular boy in High School.  Sawako Kuronuma is bad at making new friends.  Because of her pale skin and long black hair, many are scared of her appearance claiming that he looks like a ghost.  She is also the type who rarely talks and if she does so scares others more because of her soft and eerie voice.  She thought her high school life won’t be any different until he met Shota Kazehaya.  What sort of events would make them closer to each other?  Can the shy Sawako be able to confess her feelings to Shota before it’s too late?

 


Kuroko’s Basketball

High school basketball is exciting and intense.  Being a high school basketball varsity is not as easy as many would assume because you are not only expected to do well in the court but in your studies as well.  Among the many Anime about High School life out there that also features basketball, Kuroko’s basketball is the best in representing both worlds.  Kuroko’s basketball is also considered by many as one of the best sports anime of all time.   It successfully touches the importance of friendship and teamwork in both the game of basketball and real life.  This anime show revolves around Tetsuya Kuroko and the Seirin Basketball club where he belongs.  Their team is far from perfect. They lack both members and talent.  Nevertheless, with the arrival of Kuroko and Taiga Kagami, a strong-willed and highly skilled first year, their chances of making it on the top of Japan High School basketball skyrocketed!

Externally, it looks like a normal school but unknown to normal people angels and devils compromise part of the student population.  The main protagonist is Issei Hyoudou, a class 3-B student who is a member of the school’s “perverted trio”.  As they name implies, they are the most perverted students in the school.  But don’t scorn him for this and set him aside along with common perverts since he comes with some good things too.  He is a pawn, a devil that has the weakest power level yet he strives to improve and eventually became the strongest.
