View Full Version : Your Favorite Hulu Anime

For those that have access to Hulu and enjoy anime, what is your favorite comedy / adventure anime that's been dubbed into English? I'd like to find a new show and I'm looking for recommendations.

I've grown accustomed to watching subbed.
So I don't actually know which shows have dubs available.
I don't prefer one over the other.
Simply all the newer shows are only subbed.

Maybe tells which ones you've seen.

For the record, I don't know how helpful this place could be.

Also, I tend to avoid hulu since they over adified it.
(I made that word up)

When I first started watching stuff on hulu it was 3 ads(only15 or 30 seconds long) for an entire half-hour show.
Now 3 ads is half one of the breaks. Typically 3 breaks a show.
I don't mind ads, but they've overkilled it, IMHO.
Especially since they don't cut the plus users any more slack on that.
/ rant.

What especially annoys me about Hulu is that even if I pay for a Hulu Plus subscription, I still have to watch all the ads on the shows not specifically on Plus. What's the point of subscribing?

Like deadflowr I rarely watch dubbed shows, but if you want one suggestion on Hulu, then I'll throw out the zany Oh! Edo Rocket (http://www.hulu.com/oh-edo-rocket), a satirical look at political repression via a sci-fi story set in 1843 Edo. It has an especially good "localization" by its R1 licensor, Funimation. I'm told the English dubs for Baccano! (http://www.hulu.com/baccano) are pretty good as well.

Another good dub, though not on Hulu, is Aniplex's release of Nodame Cantabile (http://www.crackle.com/c/nodame-cantabile) on the Crackle site.

If you're serious about watching anime, you should try watching shows with subtitles. I'd start by trying the hilariously over-the-top Kill la Kill (http://www.crunchyroll.com/kill-la-kill) at Crunchyroll and browse around the hundreds of titles on that site. For suggestions I'd try the forums at Anime Suki (http://forums.animesuki.com/forumdisplay.php?f=15) and MyAnimeList (http://myanimelist.net/forum/?board=16).
