* Manga/FairyTail level 0 in Japan.



* Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Easily a Level 0 in Japan, France (''Ken le survivant'') and Italy (''Ken il guerriero'') where it has mainstream popularity from the '80s to this day. In the United States, lack of exposure to the anime played against it. Even though the 1986 animated film and the first 36 anime episodes were dubbed, the lack of continuation dubbing the rest of the work, together with the release of an underwhelming live action film based on the series in 1995, played against its promotion in the United States. In recent times it has been getting more popular in the United States thanks to word of mouth, contact with the Japanese and European fandoms, the realease of games of the series, fansubs, some appearances in videogames like Jump Super Stars, and official releases by Discotek and Creator/SentaiFilmworks.



* Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Specifically, the parts that have gotten an anime adaptation (Parts 1-4) are of this level, with [[WolverinePublicity Part 3]] being a borderline Level 1; the parts that have not been adapted are around Level 3. In Japan [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff and Europe]], the series is easily a Level 0.

* ''Anime/ShimaShimaToraNoShimajiro'': While not unknown in Japan and Taiwan, isn't popular outside of it's target demographic, preschool teachers and parents for several reasons [[note]]Firstly, the shows are straight-on SliceOfLife {{Edutainment}} for preschoolers ala WesternAnimation/PeppaPig. And secondly, the show had a tendency to turn into an overly long commercial for educational toys[[/note]]. However, in other Asian countries it's practically unheard of, and it's only exposure in the west was due to a particular potty-training video that went viral[[note]]Pants-man Shimajiro[[/note]], and was quickly forgotten soon after.
