1. Attack on Titan
Attack on Titan is a popular anime series available on Hulu that shows an action-adventure thriller. It is set in the last stronghold of humanity’s resistance to the titans. It involves many of its characters’ lives, and the constant suspense keeps it interesting to watch.
2. My Hero Academia
My Hero Academia is an action thriller that has been regarded as one of the best shows in the last half-decade. It tells the story of a child with no abilities who is bestowed with abilities by none other than his hero.
This anime series touches on a variety of subjects, including good and evil, as well as the current superhero culture. The action moments are spot-on, and the narration is spot-on.
3. Black Clover
Black Clover is an adventure show set in a magical world. It’s presently airing, although there were still a lot of episodes in the works when I was writing it. The plot revolves around two young guys, one with amazing magical abilities and the other with none at all.
They both join The Magic Knights in the hopes of one day becoming the Wizard King. Because of its resemblance to magic users and guilds, it’s been dubbed Fairy Tail Jr by some. Hulu offers both subtitled and dubbed versions, so you have complete control.
5. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is one of Hulu’s most popular fantasy-adventure anime. The tale follows the Elric brothers as they experiment with forbidden magic, uncover evil plans, and search for the Philosopher’s Stone. It’s an old program, yet it still holds up to today’s standards. Unfortunately, Hulu does not contain the original Fullmetal Alchemist. That one, though, is available on Netflix in both subs and dubs.
5. Panzers and Girls
Girls und Panzer is a sweet little show about girls who compete in a school tournament by driving tanks. Its focus is on human interactions rather than the tale itself, but that’s a hallmark of many kinds of reality shows.
The season eventually circles back around the girls winning a national competition for their tank combat abilities. The series is only 14 episodes long, so it’ll be over in no time. However, it is only available with subtitles.
K-On!! It’s a slice-of-life show about four (later, five) girls who belong to a school music club. They sing, eat cake, and work to improve their interpersonal ties. K-On is one of the anime responsible for the slice-of-life genre’s immense popularity and success in Japan, therefore it’s an obvious choice for this list.
Toradora! is a sweet romantic comedy about two people who have crushes on one other. They try to set each other up with their crushes, but it usually doesn’t work out. The characters, on the other hand, begin to bond as a result of the quality time they spend together. There are some slice-of-life themes as well, but the main focus is on romance. It’s a fast-paced show with good dialogue and fun. Hulu only carries the subtitled version, which is a bummer because there is a dubbed version.
8. Your Lie in April
Your Lie in April is a love drama about a boy who plays the piano that is subtly written. After his mother dies, he loses the desire to play it, but after meeting Kaori, a violinist, he rediscovers it. Kaori has a crazy attitude and just wants to accomplish one thing: play the violin with our hapless protagonist. The show has a total of 22 episodes and practically every episode is used to explain the plot. It’s a must-see for anyone who like romantic films.
9. Food Wars
Food Wars is a funny drama about a teen who enjoys putting his culinary skills to the test. He’s always on the lookout for new flavor combinations and enrolls in a cooking school to further his education. The plot revolves around his adventures at school and all of the turmoil that comes with them. The show has some very hilarious situations, and its cheerful tone makes it enjoyable to watch.
10. One Punch Man
One Punch Man is an action comedy about a bald man who punches everyone in the face. Despite the constant mayhem that surrounds him, he rarely seems to want anything to do with it. The contrast of setting up a major combat scenario only to have Saitama crush the villain in a single blow is comedic gold. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on Hulu, whereas Seasons 1 and 2 are not available on Netflix.
Danganronpa is a mystery thriller with a tinge of dark terror. A group of students is stuck in a game show in which they must execute the perfect murder in order to be released. Monobear, the game show’s host and major adversary, keeps an eye on them. The show doesn’t pull any punches and is a fun trip all the way to the end. It’s based on a video game, and there are several further installments in the franchise.
12. Death Note
Another popular anime that can be found on Hulu is Death Note. It’s a thriller with elements of mystery and terror. When a student discovers a notebook with people’s names scribbled in it, it kills them. A large amount of the show centres around a detective and a pupil on a cat-and-mouse search. The anime is available on both Netflix and Hulu, and the live-action remake has gained a lot of attention.
Blood-C is one of Hulu’s top anime series. It’s a violent action thriller with elements of horror. Saya and her father protect a small, remote village from a race of monsters that can take control of inanimate items and use them to murder people. If they can stomach it, those who get a buzz from action, death, and destruction will almost likely enjoy this one to the utmost. We don’t recommend this to children or anyone who becomes dizzy when they see blood.
14. Elfen Lied
Elfen Lied is a bloody thriller with a smidgeon of terror. It tells the narrative of Lucy, a psychopathic killer with magical abilities, as well as a newly evolved race known as Diclonius and a government plot to eliminate them. Dark fantasy and science fiction elements are also present in the anime, which help to propel the story along.
It was difficult to choose only a dozen or so anime for this list, so here’s a long list of honorable mentions including a bunch of more wonderful anime on Hulu that you might enjoy. Fairy Tail was one of the shows we wanted to feature.
Bleach is an older anime that has been shown for quite some time. We can’t suggest this one enough because Hulu offers all 366 episodes, both subbed and dubbed. The plot is fairly complex, but it centers on a man named Ichigo who gains the abilities of a Soul Reaper. It’s a typical action-adventure series.
The iconic mecha-action franchise Gundam is the godfather of anime, and Hulu has multiple shows from the legendary mecha-action genre. Gundam 00, Gundam Wing, Gundam The 08th MS Team, Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans, and the still-in-development Gundam The Origin are among the Gundam series available on Hulu. Mecha fans should definitely check them out.
17. Kill la Kill
Kill la Kill is a dark action-adventure anime with a twist in the plot. It tells the story of Ryoko and a sentient piece of clothes that she encounters. In hunt of her father’s murderer, she and some companions take on a full school of people. The visual style is a bit divisive, but the tale is captivating.
18. Madoka Magica
One of the most well-known titles in the magical girl anime genre is Madoka Magica. It follows Madoka and her companions as they grant a wish and transform into magical ladies. Before the show takes a sudden and dark turn, the first few episodes are beautiful and pleasant.
19. No game no life
There will be no game. No Life is comparable to Sword Art Online in that it is a “new world, new life” show. It follows two shut-ins as they defeat a deity in chess and are granted the chance to live in a virtual reality world. They opt to do so, and the adventure starts.
The plight of a minor god with almost no followers is the focus of Noragami. After an accident separates her soul from her body, he agrees to favors for five yen and befriends a young girl, but strangely does not kill her. The action-adventure series has a lighthearted tone to it, but it can also be suspenseful when needed.
