Gun Gale Online
Karen has always felt awkward with her height. When you’re quite tall and literally a head above the rest, people tend to stare.
Deep down, she has always wanted to be the opposite of her height. So to get that fulfillment, she chooses to be a tiny and adorable girl in her online games!
But not only is she small and cute, but she is also a menace with a gun in Gun Gale Online. But then Karen gets roped into a battle royale. With her pocket-size adorableness and pink gun, how will she fare?
MMO games can be quite life-draining but also a source of joy and purpose for some. So when Momonga’s favorite MMO was about to close, he chose to stay logged in to the game until the very end.
But after waking up from an accidental sleep, he finds himself trapped in the game instead!
But it seems like years of mastery and grinding in the game has made him quite the expert in it. He has become the most overpowered being in the game!
The Irregular at Magic High School
Although he didn’t fare so well in the entrance exam of his new magic school, Tatsuya seems to be a very knowledgeable and talented student for his ranking.
His physical prowess in combat and technical know-how in magic are quite odd for a “Weed” like him. Now everyone labels him an “irregular” at school!
Maybe there’s more to Tatsuya than meets the magical eye.
Everywhere he goes, trouble follows him. Due to this reputation, Vash has been nicknamed “The Humanoid Typhoon” by people.
But this drifter is all about love and peace. He wants no trouble at all! Unfortunately, bounty hunters don’t care for his virtues, and they will do everything to capture him to get paid.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works
In this world, winning the Holy Grail is the most important thing for a master and their servant.

In this quest to attain the Holy Grail, who do you think will win?
The Tatami Galaxy
While eating ramen, a hopeless romantic third-year college student thinks back on his early years in college.
He desperately wants to live a fulfilling and love-filled college life. But since he constantly fails to attain this goal, he instead spends his time breaking couples and being anti-cupid to others.

But on this ramen-filled night, it seems like he can get another chance in love!
Looking for a romance anime to sweeten your anime marathon? Give Horimiya a try!
Horimiya is the tale of two seemingly opposite people who find out that they have more things in common than they thought.
Hori is the perfect student in many people’s eyes. She’s smart, kind, and pretty! This kind of triple threat seems so different from the quiet, meek, distant, and mysterious Miyamura.
But due to Hori’s responsibilities, she has little time to socialize. And due to Miyamura’s secrets, he is hesitant to open himself to others.
They both realize they’re in a similar situation and start to slowly open up to each other instead.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War
Need more sweetness in your Hulu anime marathon? How about we sprinkle a bit of comedy in it?
Kaguya-sama: Love is War is a rom-com anime about two people who just won’t admit their feelings for each other.
What started out as a game to see who will confess their infatuation first became dangerously real for these two hilarious love birds. They both later realize they like each other but are too proud to admit it!
Sigh – love is definitely a warzone for these two.
Snow White with the Red Hair
We’ve got a fairy tale recommendation right here! But instead of the usual Snow White, we bring you a redheaded Snow White who’s also a herbalist and a wonderful healer.
Shirayuki was living a peaceful life as an apothecary when the Tanbarun prince took notice of her and her hair.
Smitten by her locks, he wants to make her one of his concubines! Shirayuki understandably refuses.
She runs away from him, cutting her long red hair in the process. Thankfully, she meets another prince, a kind one this time, who helps her. But she ends up healing him from being poisoned!
Now, Shirayuki aims to be a court herbalist for this prince’s kingdom. But not only did she cure him, but it also seems like Shirayuki healed his heart as well.
The Heroic Legend of Arslan
Although not a warrior like his father, Arslan was still eager to prove his worthiness as the prince of his kingdom and the son of a mighty king on the battlefield.
Unfortunately, a betrayal has turned his life and kingdom upside down.
Now without a kingdom, an army, or even family, Arslan sets out to find any loyal allies remaining. He sets out to find the traitor, take back what is his, and become the king he was destined to be.
For anime fans who enjoy historical anime with kings, knights, and battles, this is a great anime to binge on Hulu!
Yu Yu Hakusho
Hulu has a lot of shounen fighting anime to choose from, but one of our recommendations is this classic title that had a lot of 90s anime fans do the finger gun.

In another surprising turn of events, the prince of the realm decides to give him another chance at life, but only if he becomes a spirit detective for him.
With the help of his rival-turned-friend, Kuwabara, as well as two mysterious demons, Kurama and Hiei, Yusuke then starts his new life as the spirit realm’s very own spirit detective.
The Promised Neverland
