So what's the most popular anime of all time ?
>>
Akira? Something old?
>>
Dragon Ball? Pokemon? Death Note? Attack on Titan? Haruhi?

Pick any of the above. It's probably right.
>>
>>101088117
>Haruhi
No.
>>
>>101088018
Doreamon
>>
If you go by what pops in the head of a random person in the street when prompted then Gundam in Japan and Pokemon in the world at large.
>>
Pokemon
>>
Sazae-san
>>
>>101088018
DBZ easily. It's known worldwide and has probably been dubbed into more languages than any other show ever has. I think it's still getting dubbed and released in new countries even today. Plus it's meme power is so wide spread that I know people who've never seen a single second of any anime but know what a super-saiyan is. Or at the very least get the reference.

It sort of like how people who've never seen Star Wars or could care less about sci-fi (yes, I've met people in their 30's and 40's who've never seen Star Wars, any of them) but still know what you're talking about if you mention light sabers, the force, or Darth Vader.

DBZ has become a ubiquitous part of pop culture in a way that no other anime has or probably ever will.

>It's known worldwide
Haven't read any further.
Probably Pokemon is the most popular, but it doesn't make the series any good.
>>
>>101091023
nah, pokemon
>>
>>101088421
>>101091274
>>101091340
Pretty sure Pokemon is better known for its games, than it is for the anime.
>>
Must be Pokemon
>>
>>101088117

>Pick any of the above.

>Haruhi
>Death Note
>AoT

You're a retard.
>>
>>101091362
It's still the most widely known anime
Whether the show is watched more or not
>>
Guessing Dragonball or Naruto
>>
>>101088213
Winner! Pokemon might be runner up, but I think Doreamon has twice the generations of asian fans, asian vs western popularity of anime in perspective as well.
>>
Pokemon definitely.
>>
pokemon, db or/and one piece
>>
>>101091410
*Your a retard
>>
>>101091514
I think so as well. judging from what I saw in Hong Kong
>>
>>101091984
>>
>>101091362
Considering everyone thinks the male MC in each game is named Ash for some reason, and Yellow exists, hardly.
>>
Evangelion?
>>
>>101091514
I'd still say, worldwide popularity, pokemon is the highest.

even though doreamon is the highest grossing anime of all time
>>
>>101088018
Boku no eoten.
>>
It's either Sazae-san or Dragon Ball, you uncultured fucks
>>
>>101093272
>not Doraemon
>>
>>101093272
I don't even know what a Sazae-san is, this is how much popular it is.
DBZ
Pokemon
One Piece/Naruto

with that order
>>
>>101093407
Oh, it's just the longest fucking running anime of all time, that still consistently gets top ratings in japanese TV, newfriend :)
>>
>>101093407
>>101093550

And is watched across all demographics, from toddlers to old man
>>
>>101093550
It's not only the longest running anime of all time, it's the longest running non soap-opera TV series in history
>>
>>101093550
What does it matter if it's the longest or whatever? Isn't this a most popular anime thread? I've been watching anime since 2007, and I have never heard of it. Also, google "popularity".
>>
>>101093550
so youre telling me that if u go to america or europe and start asking people in random: do u know what dragonball is? and do u know what sazae-san is? most people will answer that they know what sazae san is?
>>
>>101093668
Try to google japanese anime TV rankings. Good luck finding any week where Sazae-san wasn't in the top spots. It doesn't matter it it was last week or 40 years ago
>>
>>101093550
It's only popular in Japan.

Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, or Pokemon is the most popular anime world wide.
>>
>>101093776
I don't know about America, but most people in most European countries would know Dragon Ball. It was a incredibly huge cultural phenomenon. I knew a 70 year old dude and a couple of housewives that watched it.
>>
>>101088018
Pokemon
>>
What anime is your picture threadstarter?
>>
>>101093929
Boku no Pico
>>
>>101093866
In America, Dragonball Z is probably the most popular and well known anime. People are only answering Pokemon because they grew up watching it. It isn't that popular, and most people don't know it's an anime.
>>
>>101093929
SAO
Shit Anime Overall
>>
Doraemon.
>>
>>101093929
Boku No La Kill Than Black
>>
>>101093929
It's Shingeki no Kyojin (aka Attack on Titan)
>>
>>101093967
>because they grew up watching it
Same could be said about Dragonball though
>>
>>101088018
doreamon, shin-chan
>>
>>101093929
You can't be serious.
>>
>>101094102
At least one will take him serious and at least one will be his own reply
>>
>>101094102
my anon can't be this buthurt
>>
>>101088018
DBZ, Pokemon/Digimon and Shin-chan might be the most popular in Latin America
>>
>>101091362
No. It's pokemon.

There is not a single english speaking person I've met who was born in time to watch the first season of pokemon who doesn't know the lyrics, and even oblivious adults know it exists.

Even my sister who's a whole decade older than I am, and didn't really watch T.V., always used to mock me by shouting "I wanna be the very best," "Gotta catch 'em all, POKEEEEEMOOOON" etc.

Oreimo. Also known as School Days.

Speed Racer

Dragon Ball Z, Cowboy Bebop.

Rozen Maiden
K-On
Gurren Lagann
Code Gayass
Shitgeki no Kyojin
Kill la Shit
Evangelion
Sword Art Online
Haruhi
Lucky Star
Death Note
Madoka
