I personally think it would have to be a classic like kenshin,inuyahsa,ranma 1/2 or even something like Dragonball

I think it's pokemon. In japan it is still quite popular.

Hmmm I'm not sure what kind of ones I prefer. I mean I love Kenshin (haven't finished) and Naruto (haven't finished) but I also love short ones like Hellsing.
Long ones have the advantages of you looking forward to the next episode (moreso Naruto because it isn't finished) but at the same time they can diverge from the story and become sidetracked in silly stories, although some can be funny :)
Hellsing on the other hand is serious and every episode has some meaning.

Hmmm but things aside I'd say probably the most "popular" would be: (in no particular order)

Neon Genesis Evangelion
Dragon Ball Z (unfortunately)
Pokemon (Unfortunately again)
Akira
Ghost in the Shell

Homer: Pffft English. Who needs that? I'm never going to England.
Mr Largo: Lisa, do you find something funny about the word "tromboner"?

Depends which side of the ocean you are on and how exactly you'd define popular but I'd say: Gundam, Detective Conan, One Piece, Macross, Cowboy Bebop, Eva in no particular order.

In sales though, I don't think you can beat Pocket Monsters/Pokemon.

In longest running anime it be Sazae-san 1600+ eps i believe.

Hunter X Hunter is really good and it probably will be most popular one day. Naruto is definitely gonna be the best series of all time since it's known everywhere now.

Dragon Ball or Pokemon are probably the most popular. We will have to wait and see about naruto but I think it will go far.

Yes, that's correct. Pokemon surely gives TV the best results. The magnates in our country wouldn't put up something that wouldn't guarantee some huge profit.
Speaking of which, almost everyone here thinks JAPANESE FAIRYTALE==POKEMON, Then there's some barrier around 12 years, where the younger think that it's cool and the older hate every Japanese animation thanks to this one experience. :(

OMG...liek I've bean banned cuz I'm n idiot. DUH ARMY GAME R0X0RZ!!1!!!!

Neon Genesis Evangelion is not very new, but it's fame and popularity is still very high.
Or has somebody around here never heard of it?

I think Neon Genesis Evangelion .

probably pokemon IS the most popular. i mean, it just totally exploded in the US.... but then again, it's probably one of the most unpopular animes too, in the sense that a lot of people don't like it =p

NGE I think... but really I don't known...

Cancel

I'd say Pokemon, Sailor Moon and Astro Boy. XD For an older age group, NGE is pretty well known. :)

One Piece could possibly become another series that'll become most popular although I haven't seen this series.
