25 Most Influential Japanese Anime In The US

Japanese Animation or (as it’s affectionately known in the US) “Anime” is a style of animation that has taken the US by storm. Known for exaggerated features (such as big eyes, oddly colored hair, etc) animes portray fantastic stories (usually about some supernatural power) that is not just beautiful to watch but also entertaining.

The story is too old to be commented.

I don't think the person that made this list understands the meaning of the word "influential".

Im very surprised there was no Digimon,Pokemon, Inuyasha or Yu-Gi-OH.

Personally I am glad it didn't mention yu gioh, digimon, or in unashamedly (the Manga is way better than the anime). Now I am surprised it didn't mention pokemon not my favorite anime, but it was the anime that started the whole card tournaments and battles, countless merchandise, video games that kept Nintendo handhelds selling than hot cakes, etc. Is really surprising due to how influential this anime was on the United States.

yu gi oh is WAY up there in terms of influential. I remember back in elementry school there wasn't one kid who didn't know what it was or have cards.

Same for digimon. That was one of the premiere animes to watch on saturdays. Can't say that for inuyasha though since it was a late night show and even then ment for kids 13+. Probably a little more mature IIRC.

I dropped Planetes pretty quick. I couldnt tolerate that annoying girl and i read spoilers that she stays like that the whole series so i gave up on it.

Seems more like top 25 anime in US list though.

Curses no mention of fairy tail.
