Does anyone have an idea how popular One Piece is in Greece? I know it barely has a presence in the UK and US, I'm very curious about its popularity outside Japan.

Greek fan here.

It was a big hit when it started airing in 2002, even tho with several changes in character names it had no censorship a la 4kids.
Was cancelled early.

More info like the hilarious name changes.

Luffy = Drake
Nami = Bonney



If only they had known that years later we would have characters with those names.

I have respect for trying to emulate "We Are" in their own weird way.

I'm sorry but I cannot stop laughing at the Straw Hats' loyal vessel, the "Seaworthy Mario." Laughing

Gia! Sekando!

It's 2021 and Japan is hosting the Olympics. Manga/Anime references are at an all time high. I love it. lol If there's a Yu-Gi-Oh! reference, I expect it from a Japanese player since they've had to have read the manga.

Hello, also Greek fan here. The big three (One Piece, Naruto, Bleach) were always very popular in Greece, along with Death Note. Before them, we had Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and of course Pokemon and Digimon (all those shows were on TV). From the new generation, Attack on Titan is very popular, and I think lately also Black Clover - shounen series tend to do extremely well here. But I think One Piece still remains the most popular one, since it's the longest running and most famous one.

Anime in general are actually very popular in Greece. Salonica organizes a lot of conventions (nothing big, but what little we can do, we do, a previous mayor of Salonica once made an effort to cosplay as Sanji) and there is also a greek manga published named R.u.N. (it's about parkour) Popularity has boomed in recent years - Netflix has helped a lot, online platforms like Crunchyroll also.
