Top 10 Most Popular Anime in usa


I'll start with one of the most popular current anime. Why am I calling it one of the most influential in America? Because it is so popular.

Astro Boy

This is one of the first anime ever made. So definitely this is also one of the most impressive.


The series has recently received a lot of criticism from current generations of anime watchers.

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell showed us that anime isn't just for kids or teens.

Princess Mononoke

It's Walt Disney! This is not anime. Hayao Miyazaki was many people's first exposure to anime.

Voltron: Defender of the Universe

I had seen this cartoon in my childhood; I also had metal toys. Yes, in my days toys were made of real metal.

Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop was the anime for anime haters. The show appealed to a wide audience with its believable adult characters.


Many would argue with me for placing Naruto above Cowboy Bebop and other timeless anime, but Naruto is a gateway anime.


It is the most influential anime in America. Like Naruto, Pokemon isn't even considered an anime.
