most tv anime in the top 10 stay one air cuase of Tv ratings not DVD sales


I admit you do bring up a good point. Though if I may ask, why does moe not get good TV ratings but really well DVD/BD sales?


im sorry but i have no idea example i use Eva as the eexample that was a lte night anime that got 11.00 % tv ratings and good VHS/LD/DVD ect sales while late night anime today thinks its fine to get under five percent tv ratings

people say well anime is better state than it was in the 80's till the pre crash era no there is more Chanels to fill so more anime is produced it its not that less was produced back in the day there was less demand for anime to be prodcued cause of lack of time Slots to fill

Moe Shows get crap ratings on n TV

The fact that you even have moe shows on tv makes me very envious

Wait, did somebody seriously say that Berserk is unpopular? Miura can probably do one chapter a year and still play Idolm@ster for the rest of his life.

I probably don't have to mention how well the recent Bebop Blu-ray Box sold either.

Damn, I'll just quote what I said before in another thread.
It's a legend based on real activities going around on japan right now that I found on a strange, creepy book.
Here it goes:

Fact:
Fetish elements (ecchi, gore, moe and many many more) is easier to produce than original/intelligent stuff (duh!)
Then:

1st Act - Alienation and the Genesis Trigger!
They alienate kids with fetish content in kid's anime so they'll grow up with perverted mind creating a new world.

2nd Act - Even more Ecchi and Moe are produced to complete the Endless Hypnosis!
The grown up kids will now buy those since they've been alienated by their last anime generation.

3rd Act - Alienated artists appear for the Calimity Renewal!
Kids now artists, grew up with perverted minds so they renew the generation and are ready to dominate Japan with fetish everywhere.

4th Act - Total annihilation and the New Genesis!
Now Japan has been conquered by perverted minds, original artists are forced to produce ecchi/moe show.

5th Act - The Calamity Genesis is completed!
Now Anime industry only sell Ecchi and Moe, the vanquish is over.

EXTRA 6th Act - The Chrono Shifting Effect!
There's a legend that there will be only one healthy Japanese artist "he was in vacations in Hawaii so was not affected" will succeed in reverting the Calimity Genesis and bring back the healthy anime once more. He will save humanity from self destruction!
It's him... DateYutakaaaaa! Yutakaaaa! Yaaaaa! Aaaaaa! It's him!


It's true because DateYutaka can be read along these sentences.

Hmm.... I wonder just how popular Evangelion actually is in Japan, I mean... is it.. like Simpsons status popular?!?

They love it and it's considered one of the best animes. Anyway, from what I've heard SAO is actually rated highly in japan. Also they luv them some moe shit.

Oh you again , I didn't say it is more popular than one piece but it is popular 78K+ sales even Madoka didn't outsell it, novels selling really well and getting adapted in this summer , must mean it is somehow popular, right ?

You mean it's because of it's content that they think it won't be popular on the higher watched timeslots.

I am only explaining why it had low ratings as for they picked that time slot it is because of it's content ( Gore + Ecchi ) all series that have those kind of elements get pushed back to the late night time slot not because they thought it won't be popular they can't foresee the future.

Yes that's what I was explaining, you didn't mention that it was because of the content that they made it that timeslot. It sounded like you were saying that it was just because of the timeslot that it doesn't have as high as ratings as other shows.
They can't foresee the future but it's not hard to figure out that an anime with gore and ecchi won't be popular or fit at times when families are watching tv. I know in America it's like that, idk about every other country.

The taste for Western is different than in Japan. Look at gaming for example, Military game like FPS does extremely well while the JRPG does little. Not only that but Western like their Cartoon to be funny or a parody of some people, like Family guy or South park.

Because of those genres , it was pushed to the late night timeslot ? Well, eva got pushed to late night and still earned it, WON it , Deal with it , it will never be as popular as the top anime of japan. Anytime and anywhere.


Nvm wrong thread, i thought this thread = Which anime is more popular in japan = Top popular anime in Japan .

Popular anime but with less awards :[ derp. I have all the bd sales, but with 1-2 awards. Rofl

K lets , take a regular anime, and not one piece or FMA , as bake will get kick in the face

Anime like Eureka Seven , sure it has less sales, no fuck you, its sales was rocket. Won tons of award compared to it.

And no, I can't predict the future, but for now,bake is nothing much.

Those kind of people show up every once in a while.

Judging from prior examples of this guy, it's evident that there's no use trying to reason with them, I don't even try to respond properly to them anymore.

They'll usually just make more and more threads about "moe is killing the industry", "Why is older anime better" or in some cases "Anime fans are stupid."

Funny thing is that a lot of them don't even watch the supposed "moe-shit" before passing judgment.


You don't need to eat shit to know it tastes bad.

And I have had the misfortune of watching such trash.


Name them.

btw, is this trash?


Come on, tell me how you don't have to watch them to know what they are.
Tell me you can judge it by it's cover.

Go ahead, tell me.

Only picture one looks like moe-shit. Picture 2, 3 and 5 definitely not. The fourth, not sure. It seems too innocent, more like Chobits.

You should probably not judge images by their cover.

edit: Man you guys fucked up the quote chain.

Doing a quick google search Bakemonogatari sure is popular :
The light novel series ranked sixth in the 2009 issue of Takarajimasha's light novel guide book Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi!; Koyomi Araragi ranked sixth in the Best Male Character while Hitagi Senjōgahara ranked seventh in the Best Female Character.
The anime adaptation won the Users' Special Award in the 2nd annual DEG Japan Awards/Blu-ray Prizes.[38][39] Over one million DVDs and BDs of Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari have been sold

Funny thing is that a lot of them don't even watch the supposed "moe-shit" before passing judgment.


You don't need to eat shit to know it tastes bad.

And I have had the misfortune of watching such trash.


Name them.

btw, is this trash?


Come on, tell me how you don't have to watch them to know what they are.
Tell me you can judge it by it's cover.

Go ahead, tell me.

Only picture one looks like moe-shit. Picture 2, 3 and 5 definitely not. The fourth, not sure. It seems too innocent, more like Chobits.

You should probably not judge images by their cover.

edit: Man you guys fucked up the quote chain.

What has the tone to do with it looking like moe-shit?

How silly. ALL anime is more popular in Japan by virtue of the fact that it's created for Japanese demographics!

The question itself is what is the animes that are MUCH more popular in Japan than in the other countries.

For example, X anime is widely popular in America and Japan too, but Y anime is only popular in Japan, while Z anime is only popular in America but not in Japan.

Anything that isn't localized here will have practically no chance of being more popular than in Japan. The only shows that I can think of that might have a bigger fanbase internationally are Cowboy Bebop and The Big O.

Really, though, who's knowledgeable enough about this and what statistics do we have to work with in order to determine popularity? I just think it's a silly question and it invites moe trolling which is apparent in this very thread.

You have tv ratings, awards, dvd sales, movie sales, video games, and probably a couple of other things that help you determine popularity. And people who do the moe trolling do that in every thread, they don't need a special one.

Popularity is really a mix of Global fan base, DVD sales and Awards (and some other Categories). Although, it really is just DVD sales and Fan Base. Saying that, its hard to say that which is the most popular, unless someone literally got all figures and got an average from them -.-

This is obvious but Studio Ghibli films are really popular over there. They're always make tons of money in Japanese theaters when they're just released.

One, that's an immense amount of information to collect and analyze.

Two, how truly reflective of popularity are any of those things? How do we define popularity--by fan numbers or casual watchers? Awards really don't mean much (independent film awards represent niche bases). Though TV ratings would work, but how is that data collected and how accurate is it? Especially when considering niche interests, merch/BR/DVD sales might speak more than TV ratings, but it might also represent a very passionate minority.

Three, where can we find comparable statistics outside of Japan? This is the biggest problem. As far as I know, there's little data on western fans.

Again, it's a silly premise because we have no data to work with and it's hardly objective. Don't let that stop you; I get the point of the thread. I just wanted to point out that everything stated therein is groundless. Also, just because moe trolling happens in a lot of threads does not mean we should facilitate that.
