The era of streaming has knocked out industry giants like Blockbusters and paved the way for Netflix and Hulu. Gone are the days of walking into stores to rent movies on VHS tapes and DVDs. One of the best things about streaming services is that their content isn't limited to movies, but includes TV shows and documentaries. While there are lots of interesting facts about Hulu, one truth stands out for nerds and geeks: Hulu has a huge anime selection.
From classics like Samurai Champloo and popular shonen like Naruto, there's a long list of options when it comes to streaming the best anime on Hulu. However, Hulu also offers anime that isn't quite A-list, but is still pretty good. Of course, it can be difficult to find those solid B-list shows in the wide pool of anime available online because there's a ton of garbage shows out there. Check out the list below for a list of decent anime streaming on Hulu and vote up the ones that are entertaining and worthwhile.
