If you have a Hulu subscription and love sci-fi anime, then you're in luck! Hulu has a wide variety of good science fiction anime currently streaming right now, and we're going to rank them with the help of your votes.

As of right now, there are over 30 different sci-fi anime on Hulu, but some are more categorically "sci-fi" than others. Hulu anime that best represent the sci-fi genre include Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Psycho-Pass, and Steins;Gate. If you haven't seen all three of these, you really need to make them a priority! Other good science fiction anime streaming on Hulu are Infinite Stratos and Cowboy Bebop (another masterpiece you need to watch ASAP if you haven't.)

Even if you don't have a Hulu subscription, vote up the sci-fi anime on this list that you have seen and loved.
