So check the best anime shows and movies on Hulu below
Attack on Titan (4 seasons)
The manga Attack on Titan is one of the biggest selling of all time, and the anime adaptation has rightly become one of the most acclaimed in recent years. The tale of the gigantic man-eating Titans and heroic Eren Yeager is both horrifying and thrilling, and brings something genuinely new to the post-apocalyptic sub-genre.
One Piece (6 seasons)
The hugely popular One Piece follows the bizarre and very funny adventures of rubber-bodied Luffy and his crazy crew, the Straw Hat Pirates. The series has been running since 1999 and will soon hit its 1000th episode. The first six seasons are available on Hulu, and it's never too late to find out why it's one of the most watched animated shows ever made.
The international success of Katsuhiro Otomo's dazzling 1989 adaptation of his classic cyberpunk manga did much to introduce Western viewers to anime and is now considered one of the finest sci-fi films ever made. Akira is essential viewing for new anime viewers, and endlessly rewatchable for longtime fans.
Ninja Scroll Movie
Ninja Scroll was one of several anime movies that helped the genre gain popularity in the West in the early '90s, as well as establishing Madhouse as one of Japan's most important animation studios. It's a bloody and exciting film set in feudal Japan, that mixes gory action and supernatural horror.
Grave of the Fireflies Movie
Without question one of the most powerful war films ever made, Grave of the Fireflies was written and directed by Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata. It follows two orphaned siblings as they struggle to survive towards the end of World War II. It's a beautiful and devastating masterpiece that remains an absolute highpoint of the genre.
Eden of the East (1 season)
While most of the shows on this list are adapted from manga, Eden of the East is an entirely original series. It's a mystery conspiracy drama about a young man and woman who finds themselves involved in a strange game to "save" Japan. The unpredictable plot and likeable characters make it addictive viewing, even when it's not entirely clear what is going on.
Death Note (1 season)
Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's acclaimed manga has spawned a variety of adaptations and spin-offs across TV and movies, but the initial anime show is still the best. A young man finds a book that causes the death of anyone whose name is written in it, so he sets about ridding the world of evil. Death Note asks questions about fate and morality as well as being a dark and gripping supernatural thriller.
Blue Exorcist (1 season)
In a world where demons occupy a dimension parallel to our own, twin brothers discover that their dad is Satan, and start training to become demon-fighting exorcists to stop him. Blue Exorcist is a mix of horror and dark fantasy, and fans of both genres should check out its excellent single season. A follow-up series, Blue Exorcist Kyoto Saga, is also available on Hulu.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba (1 season)
Based on Koyoharu Gotouge's hugely popular manga series, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba is set in TaishÅ-era Japan and focuses on the war between humans and demons. This stylishly animated and exciting show has become a cultural phenomenon, with the recent Demon Slayer movie, Mugen Train, scoring the biggest foreign language opening weekend in US box office history.
My Hero Academia (5 seasons)
The ever-popular My Hero Academia returned in May with Season 5, and each new episode is currently Hulu every week. But if you're yet to see any of the show, then you can catch the previous four seasons, and follow Izuku Midoriya, a boy born without powers in a world filled with superheroes, as he trains to fulfill his dream of becoming one.
