** The current ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY XY]]'' series of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has been [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel better received in the West]] [[AmericansHateTingle compared to the reception to]] the ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite BW]]'' season, which was seen as the DorkAge of the anime in the west. However, back in Japan, reaction is the opposite, the show has become FranchiseZombie, and went from being constantly being in the Top 10 anime in ratings each week, to now only making it once or twice a month if it's lucky. The rise in popularity of the ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' anime has also taken away ''Pokemon'''s title as the top anime on Creator/TVTokyo.

* ''Olympus no Poron'' was a comedic manga that spoofed Myth/GreekMythology, which spawned in the early Eighties an anime series, "Ochamegami Monogatari Kolokolo Poron". "Poron" is obscure in its home country and almost everywhere else, but in Italy was renamed ''C'era una volta... Pollon'' ("Once Upon A Time... Pollon'') and gained a strong following that more or less goes on to this day: it is considered a prominent example of kids' programmes in the '80s, and they even got to publish an Italian version of the decades-old original manga!

** The series is also treated with godlike stature among kids in Indonesia's neighbor Malaysia.

The fact that the show has the best Malay dub in said country [[note]]Most anime(or any animated works in general) in Malaysia get sub-par dubbing and [[LongRunner long-running]] ones tend to get screwed regularly due to ExecutiveMeddling.

* If we speak about a certain anime faction that can be found in several countries, we can say that {{cosplay}}ers are in love with [[BaseBreaker the very polemic]] Misa Amane from ''Manga/DeathNote''. Misa's character design is pretty cute and it's actually not that hard to bring to real life in cosplay, so many female ([[CrossDresser and some male]]) cosplayers of ''several'' nationalities have embraced her. In fact, the model Francesca Dani started as a cosplayer -- and one of her signature cosplays is Misa.

*** [[TallDarkAndHandsome Sasuke]] [[RevengeBeforeReason Uchiha]] is a BaseBreaker in the Western fandom with the tendency to be outright hated more than loved, but the Japanese are quite fond of him. The situation is completely reversed with [[EmotionlessBoy S]][[NoSocialSkills ai]], who fares as a significantly less liked character in Japan than in the Western fandom.

* The anime of ''Anime/KinnikumanNisei'' in North America, where it was called ''Ultimate Muscle'', so much so that 4Kids bought another season.
** The original Kinnikuman was popular in Catalonia, where all 137 episodes were dubbed in Catalan. This was the only country that finished their Kinnikuman dub. (France bailed out around 57 due to Brocken Jr.) Having a good dub with a good for Kinnikuman that matched Akira Kamiya's wacky to serious voice style pretty well probably helped.

* While ''Manga/KodomoNoOmocha'' was popular in Japan and even had some success in the West, Italy is just nuts for this anime. It is named ''Rossana'' there (In Italy they used 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!

* While Anime/MapleTown is forgotten in some parts of Europe and the United States. The series is still popular in Spain.
* The Manga series ''Manga/HappyHappyClover (Happy Clover in France) has started becoming pretty popular in France. The French translation company "Nobi Nobi" has also made a few posts on the company's Facebook page featuring the characters. The series also has become well-liked by French readers and parents due to the setting and how great the characters are.

* Despite being huge in it's country of origin, ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' is also popular in quite a few other countries:
** The show is huge in Taiwan, where the show airs multiple times a day, has merchandise sell out frequently and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoAQDGvNAPg draws huge crowds to events related to the show]].
** It is also popular in Korea, to the point where the first movie based on the series made more money than ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' in the country.
** Fidgephant (known as Morezou in Japanese), a Yo-Kai that causes people to [[PottyEmergency really need to use the restroom]], is one of the least popular characters in Japan and was complained about by many parents in the country. In North America, the character is one of the most popular Yo-Kai and is commonly used by Nintendo to promote the series. It helps that North American children really like ToiletHumor.

* CombiningMecha ''Anime/VoltesV'', while being a notable HumongousMecha series is largely overlooked in its native Japan today. However, it has become an adopted cultural icon in the Philippines. This is partly due to the fact that it was banned during the reign of the hated Ferdinand Marcos, allegedly due to the fact that the show's BigBad reminded the dictator too much of himself.

** It's also ABSURDLY popular in Indonesia, for starters, it's one of few anime series that is still aired in Indonesia as of 2013, the other being ''Manga/DragonBall''. During school and national holidays, Doraemon movies and anime are always aired regularly alongside newer western animated movies. Lots of merchandise is named after the series. This makes it rather popular amongst old and young children alike, even those that is born long after the initial run.
