Anime Motivation is known for original posts from a data stand point.

Being the first anime site to do this style of content since 2016, it’s not surprising.

It’s only natural a post like this would be on the horizon.

In the past it’s been about:

  • Countries where hentai is the most popular.
  • Countries where manga (and anime) is the most popular.

And a similar format for Pokemon, Redo Of Healer, Crunchyroll, not to mention anime vs Hollywood (statistically) and many others.

This time we’ll be talking about the most popular anime by country, instead of where anime is the most popular in general.


A comprehensive list with visual maps

The data is taken from:

  • Google.
  • Ahrefs.

And 187 countries were analyzed to come to the below results.

The list first started out with 100 anime titles, then was narrowed down to 20 anime with a time frame of the last 90 days!

Let’s get started.


1. Most popular anime by country (worldwide)

  • Pokemon.
  • Attack On Titan.
  • One Piece.
  • Dragon Ball Z.
  • Demon Slayer.
  • One Punch Man.
  • Death Note.
  • Yugioh.
  • Bleach.

When you measure the most popular anime by country, worldwide, POKEMON comes out on top. Mostly thanks to America.

But it’s also true with Australia, and some parts of Asia.

One Punch Man is particularly popular in a specific part of the world. With the rest (not including Naruto) split up across the maps.
