hmmm, thunder cats and speed racer are the two oldest anime shows I can think of. Older than DBZ, older than dragon ball, older than voltron, older even than moble suit gundam. Well I guess you proved me wrong.

I'd think that Lupin III would be very popular as well.

actualy it's the Mysterius Cyties of Gold that ting is actualy on of the first japanice anime. I know it sound crazy but 2 weeks agow i saw it playing on tv and at the end i saw the credits well the names were japanice. This thing has been aired all over the world and translated in all most all lagushes in the world. I asked my friends mon and she told me that is was on off the first anime she saw on tv and the oldes playing on tv.
Dbz is nice and popular but this thing is even more and every one knows it.

Thundercats was american produced, produced for an american audience, and animated in Japan (was common back then).

What about Transformers? (There's a real limbo for those that know details about its background and origins, as far as "is it anime?" is concerned).

But my vote is simple. What anime has been around longest, second only to one series? Tetsuwan Atom/Astroboy!

As Garylisk said, the current most popular anime in Japan is Doraemon. Of all time, however, that would be close run between Sazae-San and Gundam, I think. Both of those have had an amazing amount of things produced for them, with over 1000 episodes for Sazae-San and over 10 series for Gundam. However, if you are wondering what <i>otaku</i>-centered anime is the most popular of all time, Gundam. Hands down.

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.


Well it appeared twice that I know of one Australian TV, as well as in New Zealand, don't know about everywhere, but in my travels I know alot of people who don't really watch anime or know of what anime is they watch cartoons and even the ones that aren't interested in either still have seen Evangelion. From Anime fans to the the not so interested it seems to be known, so I went with that as my choice. It also seems like for alot of people I know or have met or been in contact with it's the one that got them starting watching anime in the first place...:D

Evangelion aired on San Fransisco TV ^^.

dbz or pokemon, like the other guy said. Hardly anyone (anime fan or not) is going to say "Dbz/Pokemon? I've never heard of it before..."

I'd have to say either Detective Conan or anything Studio Ghibli

Detective Conan is a great show though.

Garylisk- I was about to say that :) so instead I'll give some info on it. Doreamon has over 1000 episodes...and it's been on tv for years. I think it's like the sesame street of Japanese culture. Something the last few generations all share from their childhood and makes it not only popular but it's stood the test of time.

A better question would have been what do you think is the most popular anime in america because most of the people here (including myself) have never actually been to Japan or Europe. I think that gives us very little to go on judging what is really popular anime wise. Anime is a *foreign* entertainment after all.

Most of the anime listed at the top of the page have been on tv, but there is also a huge fanbase in anime...(cons whew!) in which most people got started on tenchi, ranma, or Akira not DBZ or pokemon. Generation difference I guess..

honestly, who here has NOT at least heard of speed racer, the way you find the most overall populare is to find the one most people know about right?

Sure, everybody here has heard of Speed Racer, as everybody here has also heard of Dragonball, Evangelion, Trigun, etc, but none of those are the most popular animes ever made. You've got to keep in mind that those are all the big mainstream titles in <i>America</i>, while in Japan, the ones that are currently earning the top ratings are Doraemon, Sazae-San, Crayon-Shin Chan, Shaman King, Hamtaro, and the like. Japan is where 95% of the anime fanbase is, not in America, Canada, and Austrialia.
