Can an anime's popularity be gauged by the amount of fanart?
>>
Yes, especially if it's non-h. Same with doujins.
>>
Is touhou the most popular anime?
>>
>>101204141
It's certainly the most popular otaku franchise.
>>
>>101204033
Nope.
Certain moments and characters just tend to generate a lot of fanart, regardless of how popular the series actually is.
>>
>>101204165
Yet shows with the most amount of fanart are usually the most popular ones.
>>
>>101204033
not anime, but kancolle and 2hu did

maybe uhh Madoka? and... and SNK,
i can't think anything else
>>
>>101204141

It can be a factor in calculating a show's popularity. It's not the end-all be-all though. Some shows just generate more fanart even if they're less popular than another franchise.

These are danbooru's highest franchises.

better question: is there any Anime so obscure that in only has absolutely zero fanart? even old anime like time bokan or weird one like cat soup have some
>>
>>101204515
>zero fanart
practically impossible
>>
>>101204364
don't get me wrong, i like 2hu, but somehow my butt felt plugged seeing that
>>
>>101204364
You should actually check Pixiv's numbers.
>>
>>101204515
anime is impossible,
but manga? there's a lot of literal hidden gem that are very, very exclusive that only a small portion of people know it's existence
>>
popularity? yes
if is any good? lol no

No.

When I'm seeing the amount of bytes of all Touhou remixes combined I feel a bit dead inside.
