* The ''LightNovel/CoffinPrincessChaika'' anime quickly became a cultish SleeperHit in America and the overseas anime fandom in general, mostly due to Chaika herself--she comes off as a cute-yet-badass foreigner, a character type that unsurprisingly appeals to non-Japanese anime fans--but also because of the quirky and [[AmericanKirbyIsHardcore often brutal]] fantasy setting. Meanwhile, in Japan... the second season was cut short due to abysmal sales of the first.

* France loves Creator/LeijiMatsumoto so much, he's actually a ''knight'' there! Before being knighted, he collaborated with French electronica duo Music/DaftPunk (both of whom were big fans of ''Anime/CaptainHarlock'') to create ''Anime/{{Interstella 5555}}''.
* For some reason, a number of MagicalGirl shows and old-school shoujo series have done quite well in Europe and Latin America, but are nearly forgotten in their native Japan and just can't make in the US. Examples range from ''Manga/AiShiteNight'', ''Anime/MajokkoMegChan'', ''Manga/TokimekiTonight'' to more mainstream fare like ''Manga/SailorMoon'' and the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise (the latter two ''are'' popular in Japan too).

** ''Dragon Ball'' is the most notable anime franchise to achieve relevance among general audiences in Hungary. Its initial cancellation sparked a large outcry, and it remained popular despite being off the air in the following decade. Even whilst the anime market was on the brink of crashing at the start of the 2010s, certain TV networks decided to reach back to the franchise, producing a dub for ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' and re-airing ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' because they knew people would watch them. The fact that ''DBZ'' is broadcast at all in an environment that's otherwise hostile towards Asian media is a testament to its popularity.

* During UsefulNotes/TheNineties there was a ''huge'' demand for anime in Latin America after the success of mainstream series such as ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''Manga/DragonBall''. There were therefore many series that received cult status in there, even when they were quite obscure in Japan or the USA. These include ''Anime/IrresponsibleCaptainTylor'', ''Anime/BtX'', ''Manga/HellTeacherNube'', ''Anime/GhostSweeperMikami'', ''Manga/KishinDoujiZenki'' and ''Anime/DottoKoniChan''. It is especially noticeable in the case of the later show, ''Koni-Chan''. The series is practically unheard-of in Japan, but it's big in LatAm. Try to Google "Koni-Chan", and you are more likely to find the [[SuperlativeDubbing LatAm Dub]] than the original version.

** The anime was one of the first anime series ever distributed in Russia, and even being not so popular today, while its current status has been relegated to cult classic today , it spawned a whole ''generation'' of Russian otakus back then.then. To the point that many current committed otakus and even casual anime fans in Russia today are not only in their thirties and forties, often crediting Sailor Moon as their gateway series, but a significant portion of otakus in the country are still Moonies despite the series being relegated to cult popularity today. Even many of younger generation of otakus often seek out the series and in turn become devout Moonies in turn and the series is famous enough even Russians unaware of anime can recognize the titular protagonist.

** Together with Doraemon and Dragon Ball, Conan is consider the True "Big 3" in Vietnam. You can't go to a book store and not seeing piles and piles of at least 2 of them, often all three. This has to do with the fact that they are the first manga to reach Vietnam and thus a big part of the 90s kid childhood.

* While ''Manga/KodomoNoOmocha'' was popular in Japan and even had some success in the West, Italy is just nuts for this anime. Seriously, it is named ''Rossana'' there (In Italy they use to rename characters with western names to make them more appealing to the audience as Japanese culture was still new for the common viewer) and its popularity was ''enormous''! On Wikipedia, the Italian page is twice as long as English or Japanese and even the main characters have their own separate pages! Also the Italian dub is one of the very few to have all the episodes dubbed in Italian. It was also one of Italia 1's top anime! That's how big ''Manga/KodomoNoOmocha'' is in the boot heeled country!
