If you ask any anime fan these days what the most popular franchise is (and by that I mean not simply anime and manga, but also games, figures, costumes, etc), then you'll probably be answered with something like Full Metal Alchemist, Bleach, Naruto, Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell, etc, etc. However, this was not always the case.
