Best 20 Completed Anime on Crunchyroll, Netflix, Funimation & Hulu

While watching an anime by its time of release is certainly fun, it can also be a bit annoying for some. There are many fans who don’t like to wait for episodes or even seasons for several years to know how the story ends. For them, we’ve made a list of the best 20 completed anime on Crunchyroll, Netflix, Funimation & Hulu.

For this list, we’ve taken those anime that have completed their story or source materials. So, we’ll be leaving anime like Ouran High School Host Club or Blue Exorcist, which have little chance to get a series renewal but haven’t completed the story of the manga yet. 

Now that we’ve cleared that up, we’ll be moving on to the best 20 completed anime on Crunchyroll, Netflix, Funimation & Hulu.
