YMMV: Anpanman

  • Americans Hate Tingle: Kokin-chan, Dokin-chan's Blue sister who won't stop crying tends to be wildly unpopular with American fans, but In Japan? She gets a lot of fanart from Pixiv.
    • Dokin-chan herself, who won't stop being a Tsundere to Baikinman is also wildly and regularly unpopular with American viewers, but she's ranked below Kokin-Chan in the Popularity Poll in Japan.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The "Epic" version of "Anpanman's March" from "Dolly's Star of Life".
  • Ear Worm: Many of the songs from the show, especially from Dreaming, can so catchy that you can't get your mind off of it!
  • Foe Yay:
    • Between Anpanman and Baikinman, especially in the kindergarten movies...but that doesn't count, since they are friends in those.
    • One could consider Baikinman and Dokinchan as foe yay, considering how Dokinchan treats him usually. This troper also still has no idea why Baikinman doesn't kick her out his house. She's rarely nice to him when she actually needs his help. He always listens to her and never tries to do her any harm, even protecting her and saving her from time to time. This troper wants that Dokinchan realises what a good friend she has made.
  • Ho Yay
    • Well, since they are friends in the kindergarten movies, Anpanman and Baikinman would count as this.
    • Also Baikinman and Horrorman. WTH
    • In a Valentine's Day episode, after watching Cupid go to work on some woodland creatures, Baikinman cheerfully has this monologue in his UFO: "Make Anpanman fall in love with me . . . I mean, no, make me fall in love with Anpanman - no, no , no!"
  • Les Yay: Shiratama and her assistant Tsukiko in the special "Tsuki Koto Shiratama". Being Takarazuka performers helps. Also Tsukiko with Dokinchan in the episode.
  • Periphery Demographic: It has to exist one way or another what with the show running this long. Though a more surprising case is that they do have fans from the West who are indeed not in the targeted age group albeit very underground, and often leads to expressing their "frustrations" toward certain characters. Famously, Naganegiman. As usual, these kind of things happen in Tumblr.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion:
    • One of the not-main characters called Shiratama was quite confusing, and is that even more when seeing her friend.
    • Shiratama and her friend are Takarazuka performers.
    • Akachanman, the young child wearing the pink costume who became a primary character sometime ago.
