How many people watch anime and Manga?

Anime, or Japanese animation, is one of the most widespread subgenres of television programming, with fans in almost every country. Outside of Japan, die-hard anime fans have been importing their favorite shows for decades, first on physical media and then online, with fan clubs painstakingly translating each episode. Of course, this is done unofficially.

Fans of anime have embraced the Internet as a considerably more convenient and faster way to watch their favorite series. There are various dedicated streaming services that just broadcast anime titles because there is such a big demand for anime online. It is one of the best sites for ad-free anime material, similar to Hulu.

Because anime fans come from all over the world, it makes it logical for anime production to do the same. Western animated shows, such as Nickelodeon’s successful western animation Avatar: The Last Airbender, which borrows numerous stylistic inspirations from Japanese animation, are an example of this.

Because anime is such a global phenomenon, we’ll use Parrot Analytics’ global TV demand data to gain an overview of the subgenre in this article.

Countries where anime is popular:

In Japan, this is where you’ll find the most anime. Manga and anime are probably Japan’s most well-known cultural exports, and they represent one of the world’s most identifiable creative types.

The universe of Japanese animation, on the other hand, is far more diverse and nuanced than we in the West may realize. Only in the west does the term ‘manga’ refer to all Japanese animation. Anime is a term used in Japanese culture to refer to any surplus animation, whether Japanese or non-Japanese.

Importantly, anime is not merely a kid’s culture in Japan. Instead, mature anime programs such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Attack on Titan, Death Note, and Cowboy Bebop were highly popular. Many of these shows were created with adults in mind, with complicated topics and plotlines as well as three-dimensional and real characters in the west, we equate anime with Japan in the west, and Japan with anime nearly entirely. It’s a huge element of their cultural industry, and it’s possibly the country’s third-largest. This, of course, makes it a mega-business, bringing in more than $19 billion per year.

Nonetheless, one of the most astounding aspects of anime is its worldwide popularity. According to reports, Japan produces 60% of all animated television shows around the globe. The anime industry in China is enormous, and numerous channels and services that distribute anime in the West have increased its popularity.

Anime streaming services like Hulu and Funimation, as well as channels like Cartoon Network with Adult Swim and Toonami, have brought this media to an ever-increasing audience. Over a hundred thousand people attend America’s annual anime conference these days.

List of the countries where anime is most popular:

  • Japan 
  • Mexico
  • Spain
  • USA
  • Russia
  • Brazile
  • India

Mexico: In 1985, this country produced the first series of anime, called Dragon Ball.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Viewers in Mexico’s Golden Age don’t just stop watching anime once it’s been presented on television. They also grew up in a time when anime-related products could be purchased after school or at work.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Viewers in Mexico’s Golden Age don’t just stop watching anime once it’s been presented on television. They also grew up in a time when anime-related products could be purchased after school or at work.

These Mexican viewers from the 1980s and 1990s are now grownups with their own families. They may now share their memories of anime with their children via television, the internet, and other kinds of media.

The fact that Spanish-dubbed animes have made their way to Mexico has also contributed to a strong Mexican fandom.

     USA: According to my Knowledge America hosts ten of the world’s largest anime festivals.

For almost three decades, the United States has been a huge anime influencer.

     Russia: In Japanese animation, there are ‘more than 30 Russian characters.’

Many fictitious Japanese characters have Russian names, such as Anastasia, and Rasputin, which are also real-life, historic, or political Russian people.

Perhaps Japanese studios employ common Russian surnames like Putina, “Petrov,” and Romanova to make these fictional anime characters more relatable to Russian viewers.

Another argument is that Russia has been involved in conflicts since the sixteenth century.

     Spain: Only after Hindi but before French, Spanish is the world’s fourth most spoken language. After English and Japanese, Spanish anime websites appear in Google searches more than any other language.

     Brazil: Anime has been popular in Brazil since the 1960s, long before the era of Dragon Ball Z in the 1990s.

     India: From Doraemon to Dragon Ball to Naruto to One Punch Man, anime has a long history in India. But did you know that it all started with the Hindi-dubbed version of ‘The Jungle Book’?

 

I’d estimate that roughly 8% to 10% of the population watches anime on a regular basis. I don’t have any verification of that figure, but it’s what I’d guess.

As to why… To begin, it’s an intriguing aspect of Asian culture, but it’s a tv, so it’s bare bones. It’s just like any other show, only this one is animated.

There are a variety of art styles, maturity levels, genres, characters, and narratives to choose from. There is so much variety, and I believe it is highly innovative and attractive since producers have more artistic freedom. The feats that can be done in a live-action film are incredible, but there are some things that can’t be edited in. Because there are no laws of physics or health considerations for actors in anime, the producers can be more creative.

Also, there is a great deal of variety. I recently saw an anime adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. I’ve seen an anime where the main character is slime. I once saw an anime in which humans were turned to stone and remained thus for thousands of years. I once watched an anime in which teenagers were confined in a high school for the survival of the fittest-style game. There is only one. There’s a lot.
