** It technically did, but it was cancelled after only half the series was released due to poor promotion resulting in poor sales.

* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn!'' is one of Japan's most popular anime and it shows at conventions but compared to is ''MASSIVE'' fanbase in Latin America (especially Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina), its native land just can't hold a candle. Oh God, where to start? A good 20% of doujins of the series are in Spanish and on there are more than 3,300 fanfics of the show in a Latin language on Fanfiction.Net. Many forums and Facebook groups are in Spanish. If you go to an anime convention in Mexico or Brazil, there ''will'' be Reborn! cosplayers! The anime is also a big hit in Spain and definitely France. While nowhere near as big as in the Latin countries, it's still not obscure in the US because its one of the most popular shows on Crunchyroll. Maybe Latin America likes the fact that the Mafia is in this show?

*** Italians fronted most of the budget for ''WesternAnimation/LupinIIITheItalianAdventure'', which meant they got to show it even before Japan! And yes, it's set in Italy.

** ''Doraemon'' has been hugely popular in Taiwan in the four decades since his introduction, to the point where the titular cat was an unofficial mascot of the country. The first ''Doraemon'' theme park was also opened in Taiwan in Taoyuan back in 2010, and he's a mascot for everything from portable electric fans to motor scooters, is a regular sight in the country's famous and widespread convenience stores, and popularized dorayaki (his favorite snack) as a street food.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' was well-received in Japan, but it never lived up to the hype of its predecessor, ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. In the West, however, where ''Evangelion'' is highly polarizing, ''Gurren Lagann'' is seen as one of the best anime ever made, and there's a bigger divide over which show is better there.

In the West, however, where ''Evangelion'' is highly polarizing, ''Gurren Lagann'' is seen as one of the best anime ever made, and there's a bigger divide over which show is better there. Notably, in Japan the series had to compete both with thematically-similar contemporaries in the genre, and many of its most popular themes appeared not just in ''Evangelion'', but also the very successful ''Anime/GunBuster'' before it. In the United States in particular, many of ''Gurren Lagann'''s competitors did not air (lacking Gainax's international pedigree), and ''Gunbuster'' was relatively unknown, making its own premises seem unprecedented.

* ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' was a flop in its native country, but America has given it ''plenty'' of attention. This is no doubt thanks to the fact that Americans appreciated Creator/StudioGainax experimenting with Western-style animation (of course, there were the otaku who said that [[BrokenBase BECAUSE of said Western-style,]] [[NoTrueScotsman it shouldn't count as anime]]), SurprisinglyGoodEnglish, and the fact that Daten City is modeled after American cities. Americans also found Panty's and Stocking's rude, crude, and openly-sexual behavior refreshing after dealing for so many years with {{moe}} [[TheIngenue protagonists]] [[BackToBackBadasses they kicked ass]] and not only enjoyed sex [[LieBackAndThinkOfEngland instead of passively enduring it]], but actively sought it out, something feminist otakus praised. It was a MagicalGirl anime that [[{{Seinen}} adult males]] could proudly say they're a fan of, and has often been compared positively to shows like ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' and ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'' with all that [[RefugeInAudacity lewdness going on in there]]. When the [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic soundtrack]] gave a hint that there might be a second season, Americans collectively flipped their shit. When they found out a few months later that Hiroyuki Imaishi, the creator of the series, left to found his own studio, Creator/StudioTrigger, Americans mourned the loss. Many considered sending facetious death threats ([[InsaneTrollLogic it worked with]] ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion EVA]]'').

* ''Anime/SonicX'' was much more popular in the U.S. and France than in its homeland; the third season never even aired in Japan.

* ''Anime/SonicX'' was much more popular in the U.S. and France than in its homeland; the third season never even aired in Japan. Given the fact that [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] is [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff already popular enough as it is in Western regions]], this comes as no surprise.

** In the era of Stands, ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Diamond is Unbreakable]]'' is considered to be the series' BaseBreaker bordering on Dork Age in Japan following the beloved ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Stardust Crusaders]]'', but in the west this is reversed, with Jotaro being considered a NinetiesAntiHero compared to the more sympathetic Josuke.

* ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' is already quite popular back in Japan, however it's popularity in the west has outright exploded, especially with the release of the anime, due to a combination of both HotBlooded themes and it's satire on over-the-top Shonen Manga, yet still being an AffectionateParody, being anticipated to be one of the biggest hits since ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. The [[AwesomeArt amazing]] [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome animated]] anime adaptation has helped the Western fandom grow even further.

* ''3000 Leagues in Search of Mother'' ended up being very popular in lots of countries (from {{the other Wiki}}) The series was dubbed into several languages and became an instant success in some countries, such as Portugal, Brazil, Spain, Venezuela, Colombia, Germany, Chile, Turkey, the Arab world and Israel. In Israel it was broadcast as a marathon each and every summer holiday, managing to traumatise enough kids, that at least some of them made parodies of it when they grew up. compare [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHkgleNoksE the original]] to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvvtulTrT1Y the parody]].

* Anybody remember ''Goal FH''? You might know it as ''Goleadores'' instead. It was pretty popular in Latin America around the time of the 1994 FIFA World Cup... perhaps not as popular as ''Captain Tsubasa'', but it's well-remembered. However, outside of Latin America not many people know it. The number of times it is mentioned in this wiki can be counted on one hand and you'd probably still have about four fingers left when you're done counting. ''It doesn't even have an article'' (not even a ''stub'') at TheOtherWiki. Goes ''way'' beyond "obscure," more like almost non-existent'', really...
