Meh. It’d be a lot more interesting and compelling reading if they actually had them ranked by number of views and not alphabetical order. But anime licensors are so secretive about this stuff for some reason.

Seeing Jojo's Bizarre Adventure on all of these lists - Part 5, no less, we made it all the way to Part 5 - is so weird for me, as a fan for such a long time. I still didn't really believe it was anywhere close to "anime fan mainstream" until I started seeing clips on YouTube with millions of views, the kind of thing reserved for stuff like Dragon Ball Z or whatever.

A real shame Fruits Basket doesn't seem to be anywhere on these lists. I think it's a fantastic reboot. It sure seems popular on the CR list on the days it comes out.

Hang on, how can One Piece be on the list of most popular shows in the UK? The show isn't available to watch on Crunchyroll in the UK.

How is One Piece on the UK top ten? It's not available in the region.

I'll give CR a ring about the UK list, thanks for pointing that out!

As popular as Hunter x Hunter is, I'm still surprised it beat currently airing Shonen shows like My Hero and One Piece. Not that I'm complaining. Glad to see people are watching Mob.

It's in alphabetical order. We have no idea what is on the top of these lists (other than speculation).

No big surprises on these lists, but it is always fun for me to look at them. This season I am watching Ace of Diamond Act II, Attack on Titan 3, part 2, Bungo Stray Dogs 3, Cinderella Nine, Demon Slayer, Dororo, Fairy Gone, Fairy Tail, Fruits Basket, Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu, Kono Oto Tomare!, Miru Tights, MIX, The Rising of The Shield Hero, Sarazanmai, Senryu Girl and Why the Hell are You Here, Teacher!?

I am streaming 11 of those on Crunchyroll.

It is good to see that the Re:Zero anime is still doing great though I think the Bleach anime deserves an award for making the top 20 list more than 7 years after it ended. The Bleach manga spoiler[was popular since it was a good fantasy adventure story but the popularity meant that the manga continued years longer than it should have.]

No surprises here from these lists. Shonen stays winning.

I believe that's because depending on viewership, that's more money for the top rated shows, so they don't want to reveal who gets how much slice of the pie, and also likely because other studios can't see who negotiated what royalty rates.

Are other regions mixed up or catalogued in the UK region chart that are being counted?

Speaking as a non-US anime fan, Fruits Basket was licensed only in the USA, never in Latin America.

Not in Latin America is correct, but "only in the USA" certainly is not. Per animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-04-02/crunchyroll-adds-new-fruits-basket-anime/.145320

The series will debut on Friday in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and the Netherlands.

Crunchyroll let me know it was a mistake. I've replaced the old graphic with their updated one.
