List Rules Vote for the best Hulu anime, regardless of how many episodes are on Hulu Plus.

Here is the list of the best anime streaming on Hulu, as determined by anime fans like you. Hulu has quite an expansive collection of top anime, but since the site isn't always the easy to navigate, we've decided to rank this list for you. From classics like Cowboy Bebop and Sonic X to modern hits like Naruto Shippuden, they really do have it all. And if you can't find it on Hulu, you can find plenty of good anime to watch on Crunchyroll. Some of these top Hulu animes feature great black anime characters as well as some of the most hated anime characters.

Featuring popular anime series like Death Note and Attack on Titan, this list of the best anime currently streaming on Hulu includes a variety of genres. If you're into romance, horror, action, or even ecchi (you can admit it), Hulu has them all of your anime favorites, including Maken-ki! and Fairy Tail

Some of the shows on this list of Hulu anime may require a Hulu+ subscription to view all the episodes, but most are available for free. Both subbed and dubbed anime options are available, so don't sweat if your prefer one or the other.

This list is updated as Hulu adds new anime, so you check back to see how the new Hulu anime is ranking compared to the existing.
