* The anime adaptation of ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' bombed in Japan, resulting in its cancellation after 12 episodes. In America, however, ''Deadman Wonderland'' became a SleeperHit and currently rivals ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' as the most watched show on the revived {{Toonami}} block.

** ''LightNovel/ThePetGirlOfSakurasou'': Nanami, Sorata's classmate, who's in a similar place in life and becomes his best friend. Bolstered by her [[TheWoobie many other struggles]]; she wants to be a voice actor, but keeps failing auditions, and her parents aren't exactly supportive. [[spoiler:This makes the fact that she doesn't get the guy seem especially unfair.]] [[UnfortunateImplications Made awkward]] by the tendency of her fans to imply that her rival, Mashiro, is "[[AmbiguousDisorder too autistic]]" to have a proper relationship.

* Although ''Manga/JunjouRomantica'' is by no means lacking in popularity, there is a significant amount of Western fans who enjoy the [[IdiosyncraticShipNaming Egoist]] storyline and avidly dislike the rest of the manga. Likely this is a result of the pairing having less UnfortunateImplications, a smaller age difference, and Hiroki being a by-the-book {{Tsundere}} (a more popular character type in the West).

* ''Hikari no Densetsu'' is a popular {{shojo}} manga about rhythmic gymnastics in Japan during the mid 1980s. Despite its high production values (being produced by Creator/TatsunokoProduction, the same anime studio that produced the aforementioned ''Anime/SpeedRacer''), the anime adaptation was a huge flop in its native country and was CutShort after only 19 episodes. But in Italy, where the series was renamed ''Hilary'', the anime was extremely popular and still is to this day; they even released the manga there. The anime series also gained popularity in France, Spain and Germany.

** While mostly overshadowed by the later parts of the series in Japan due to being before Stands and [[MinorityShowGhetto featuring a completely non-Japanese main character at a time when such was viewed as anathema]], Part 2 is widely considered to be one of the best by Jojo fans outside Japan, who enjoy its protagonist's absurd levels of HotBlooded and CrazyAwesome. In fact, Joseph being regarded as the best main character is one of the few things that the English-speaking fandom can come close to a consensus on. Some StupidSexyFlanders may or may not also be involved with Part 2's popularity, what with all the the memetic degree of MachoCamp and HoYay / LGBTFanbase resulting from having the testosterone-enriched equivalent of a CastFullOfPrettyBoys, plus all the hilariously [[{{Stripperific}} oversexualized male designs]] and fabulous posing involved.
** Italy remains the only western country where has been fully released and has significant popularity. The series has a strong cult following around the world though. 1/5 of the cast is Italian and one of the 8 parts takes place in Italy. Italians love JoJo, and JoJo returns the favor.
