they really need to do the polls for people 15 years and up, this kiddy anime sucks lol
It's more something like ''Family anime'' I guess. The children first start with watching and the parents are watching with them and so the parents are also somehow getting addicted to an anime. Easy as it is.

Nice, Pokémon actually got a higher place. We're just 50 episodes behind in the Netherlands with the current amount of episodes.. It's actually not weird that Sazae-san is on top, as it's on of the longest running anime. It makes it pretty logic that the longest running anime are in the top. Still... Naruto Shippuuden? >.>

4-6 year olds are the biggest anime watching demographic in Japan. I mean, look at all the other shows on there, hardly a single one made with people over 15 in mind.

Pokemon has been in the top 10 (more or less) since it began. I'd say a lot of 4-6 year olds are watching it. I'd also guess a lot of older people are watching it as well, since it airs between Gintama and Naruto on TV Tokyo.
