Google recently released its year end Zeitgeist
listing the top searches of 2003. While there were no anime figuring prominently in the top Google.com searches, Inuyasha
ranked third on Google.ca. Meanwhile Gundam
ranked first on Google.co.jp and was the only anime related search in the top ten, Yu-Gi-Oh!
ranked first overall on Google.de (Germany), Shin-chan
ranked sixth on Google.nl (Netherlands). Thanks to Ryan and Jesse for pointing this out.
