Anime on Hulu (if it ever launches in South Africa)

A two months ago after I wrote a piece about Disney Plus it then emerged that Disney has bought a majority stake of Hulu. Bob Igor then said that they are planning on launching it to the international market with Africa a big part of that unlike with Disney Plus which didn’t have an Africa timeline.

So me being me I then thought it would be nice to check if there is something that I would love on Hulu if it was ever to come to South Africa and guess what it came down to, yeah the Anime side of things. Mainly due to my recent love a fair with the genre.

So I was able to check with multiple sites and what they (Hulu) offer. I am only going to disclose stuff that IMDb has suggested that I watch based on the shows and movies that I’ve watched in the last.

Death Note

An intelligent high school student goes on a secret crusade to eliminate criminals from the world after discovering a notebook capable of killing anyone whose names is written into it.

I know I might have messed up my viewing experience of this by watching the live action movie they have on Netflix.

Cowboy Bebop

This follows the misadventures and tragedies of an easygoing bounty hunter and his partners aboard the spaceship named Bepop.

Please note that at the moment Netflix is said to be working on a real action series based on this or the manga.

Attack on Titan

After his hometown is destroyed and his mother is killed, young Eren Yeager vows to cleanse the earth of giant humanoid Titans that have brought humanity to the brink of extinction.

One Piece

One Piece follows the adventure of Monkey D. Luffy and his friends in order to find the greatest treasure ever left by the legendary Pirate. The famous mystery treasure named “One Piece”

Dragon Ball

Dragon Ball tells the tale of a young warrior by the name of Son Goku, a young peculiar boy with a tail who embarks on a quest to become stronger and learns of the Dragon Balls when once all 7 are gathered, grants any wish of choice.

Yeah, I know this used to play on SABC 2 however I just want to watch the full thing from episode one to the last one.

Naruto Shippuden

Naruto Uzumaki is a loud, hyperactive, adolescent ninja who constantly searches for approval and recognition, as well as to become Hokage, who is acknowledged as the leader and strongest of all ninja in the village.

Yeah, this also used to play on SABC 2 but then I never got the chance to watch it because by the time I get home it’s done.

My Hero Academia

A superhero-loving boy without any powers is determined to enrol in a prestigious hero academy and learn what it really means to be a hero.

Bleach

High school student Kurosaki Ichigo is unlike any ordinary kid because he can see ghosts. After an accident with a hollow, He got power. So begins Kurosaki Ichigo’s training and city as Shinigami, Soul Reaper.

You might have to correct me if I am wrong on this one but I think I saw it play on SABC 2 meaning that it’s their current Anime show and Netflix hasana action movie in their service.

Tokyo Ghoul

A Tokyo college student is Attached by a ghoul, a super-powered human who feeds on human flesh. He survives, but becomes part ghoul and becomes a fugitive on the run.

They (Hulu) seem to have more prominent Anime shows than what Netflix has but that’s understandable due to the fact that its been said that Netflix recently joined the anime side of things. I could’ve put more shows on the list but I think for a start this would be enough in their anime catalogue for them to convert me from Netflix to Hulu.

  1. 🙂 I live in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago; which is situated in the Caribbean. We do not have Hulu here either.

    However, a lot of people use the streaming services of Netflix.

      1. Understandable this side we have Netflix, Showmax which is fully owned by the biggest Satellite TV company in the country and then there are smaller services which are mainly pushed by Network providers.
