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.

* Japanese fans (and the creators) have pretty much forgotten about ''Manga/OutlawStar'' and while it's not as popular as its fellow [[SpaceWestern Space Westerns]] ''Cowboy Bebop'' and ''Trigun'', it is still well-known in the United States, airing on Creator/AdultSwim, and getting multiple re-releases right up until the 2012 death of Creator/{{Bandai}}'s American branch. One theory why it's so popular is that the premise is basically the anime version of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' (which came later; the similarities are so great that fans have repeatedly asked Creator/JossWhedon about it). Having a kickass intro doesn't hurt, either. [[http://www.toonamifan.com/toonamioutlawretro1.html Here's]] a more detailed analysis.

* ''Anime/TheBigO'' did poorly in Japan and ended up only making 13 of a planned 26 episodes. However, its overseas popularity was enough that it was UnCancelled four years later for another 13 episodes co-produced by Creator/{{Sunrise}}, Creator/{{Bandai}} Visual, and Creator/CartoonNetwork. Keiichi Sato, the show's designer, said this was ''[[BatmanGambit exactly what he expected]]''.

* ''Anime/SecretOfCeruleanSand'' is quite a obscure Anime. But in Norway, it has a huge fan base, because it's one of the few animes to be aired there that's not an obvious choice of anime viewing.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': While the magical girls are all extremely popular in Japan, there's a noticable divide between Madoka and Homura and the other three in terms of popularity. In the west, however, Mami and especially Kyoko (Sayaka suffers a bit from AmericansHateTingle) are just as popular as Madoka, if not more, while Homura's popularity is cranked UpToEleven.


Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* ''Anime/PrincessSarah'' and ''[[Literature/LittleLordFauntleroy Little Prince Cedie]]'' was so incredibly popular among Filipinos that the network that distributed the show in the Philippines created a live action movie for both series and a TV Series for the former specifically based on the anime to cash in on it. In fact, the former got reaired again on Philippine Television (On the same network it aired years ago), thanks to some local memes involving the characters.
