    Most popular anime in America

    Like This Thread!
    This thread is for what you think is the most popular anime in America ever. If I forgot some suggestions, please tell me. I'm not counting movies only such as Spirited Away.

    Yeah, it's clearly no contest. Pokemon is the most popular show, based on advertisement and the fact that it's still going. Most of the choices aren't even known among casuals.
    Hit list:
    Lose =/= Loose
    Canon =/= Cannon

    I'm having a hard time between Pokemon, Speed Racer, and DBZ. DBZ's the top anime property in the US and has been an elite anime in America for years but Speed Racer and Pokemon are just a step ahead. It's either Pokemon or Speed Racer probably. Yu-Gi-Oh! isn't far behind either.

    I'd say Pokemon is better known as a game than anime series and that the most well-known of the lot listed here would probably be Dragonball Z.

    Very true. Yu-Gi-Oh! is more popular as a game than a series probably. Speed Racer is also very popular because of the movie and all the products and advertising that was poured into the movie.

    Speed Racer popular by the movie? The same Speed Racer that flopped and the toys are STILL stinking up toy aisles?

    I agree with HellCat about Speed Racer.

    At least in the USA, it's always had a bit of a cult following and nothing more.

    Yes, I know the movie bombed, but there was so much advertising in that movie that it really made more people aware of its exsistance. It was already popular to begin with.

    Dragonball (Z) and Pokemon are pretty high-up on the list!
