Hulu’s Best Anime Titles to Stream Right Now

Hulu has usually always had a pretty good anime catalog. Though now that Disney has taken initiative in securing animes for themselves, we may see a shift in the streaming competition for this industry in the future. With Disney also owning Hulu most of its anime if not all will stream there in the U.S. It’s a really good library of anime with most being English dubbed, even being comparable to Hidive’s dubbed library to an extent. Here we’ll be looking at Hulu’s best anime it has to offer.

While many of the best anime libraries belong to either one of the big three anime onlys services, Crunchyroll, Funimation, and HIDIVE. Many mainstream streaming services like Hulu or Netflix have added a nice anime catalog so people who are just now getting into anime can just start with these for now. Also some of these titles may be available on other services like Netflix or Disney+ Depending on your location.


Number of Episodes: 367(S1-S6) 13(TYBW) Sub & Dub

Genre: Comedy

Bleach is Hulu’s only anime exclusive so far and it’s a big one especially with it streaming a fan favorite arc. Although, there are some people who aren’t fans of Disney trying to gain exclusive rights to certain anime. Either way at least their mature titles like this series will stream on Hulu in the U.S & others instead. Right now bleach is streaming its most intense arc yet, the Thousand-Year Blood War.

Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?(Familia Myth)

Number of Episodes: 37 (S1-S3) Sub & Dub

Genre: Comedy

The show revolves around a young kid bell cranel and a lonely goddess hestia who are striving to achieve their dreams. If this is a series you’d want to always keep up to date with then I’d recommend getting HIDIVE instead which has it as a simulcast. But if not then you can just keep watching it on Hulu till it eventually gets updated in the future.

Chainsaw Man

Number of Episodes: 12 (S1) Sub & Dub

Genre: Action, Comedy

Chainsaw Man is the latest trending show that’s also available on Hulu other than crunchyroll. The story follows the MC Denji as he’s forced to hunt devils to survive this hellish world. However, with the help of his pet pochita the chainsaw devil, Denji will make sure to live a better life. If you’re already familiar with animes like Jujitsu kaisen and demon slayer, then this will certainly peak your interest.

Spy x Family

Number of Episodes: 25 (S1) Sub & Dub

Another fan favorite anime is also available here, this one of course being more grounded and family friendly.

The character that we mostly follow is Anya the telepath since she knows her parents secret.
