10 anime which are available in Hindi dub
Anime, a term originating from Japan, refers to the art of animation. It encompasses a diverse range of genres, including action, adventure, comedy, and romance. Recently, anime has gained substantial popularity in India with the emergence of various Hindi-dubbed series and movies. These adaptations have contributed to the growing fanbase of anime enthusiasts in the country.
Anime's popularity has seen a significant rise in recent years in India.
