* 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!

* ''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}} moë]] [[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]]'').

** The ''Hetalia'' fandom is ''the'' anime fandom amongst female Western anime fans right now, particularly those in the [[BoysLove slash]] and cosplay scenes. Go to a good-sized anime convention and try not to lose track of how many ''Hetalia'' cosplayers are around, nearly all of them girls.

** 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.
