Either DBZ or Pokemon. That doesn't necessarily mean they're GOOD, just seen by more people than any other anime. I mean, when you've got it going on Cartoon Network, and hugely (in my opinion unjustly) publicized, there's no way anything else (as in more adult anime) can stand up to it. There's just too darn many kids watching TV that won't show most anime for it to be fair.

they may be old school, but they are the most popular considering they lasted so long.

I find this one interesting. Why would you say it's the most popular? I haven't heard of it appearing on TV outside of Japan or being as publicised as the others mentioned. I'm not trying to say you're necessarily wrong, just wondering what your reasoning was in picking that one.

I guess it's like a cult classic, just because movies like austin powers, rocky horrer picture show, and UHF didn't do well in the theaters and are by all acounts bad movies doesn't mean that people don't watch them. In fact they are some of the most famous movies around.


PS. thunder cats and speed racer.

But we're talking about most popular here. Not "lots of people like it" or "it has a strong cult following", but "which one has pretty much everyone seen, or pretty much everyone would recognize".

Like I said, considering the age of thunder cats and speed racer everyone and their grandmother knows what they are. DBZ is hyped now but it hasnt been around NEARLY as long as speed racer or thunder cats. So more people know aobut speed racer and thunder cats than DBZ.


I rest my case

I was wondering the same thing. I don't even have a working TV, and I have heard of DBZ and pokemon.

In America, I am not sure what the most popular anime series right now. It's either DBZ, Pokemon, Sailor Moon, or Yu-Gi-Oh.

In Japan, it's a no-brainer. A list was recently released of the top 100 anime of all time, and reigning supreme was "Doraemon", an old show about a cat who is afraid of mice.

So yeah. Doraemon.
