posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Dragon Ball #3 for 2003, but anime dominates TV list and places in movie list.

Lycos announced their top 100 searches of 2003 this week and after two straight years of being the top searched for item, Dragon Ball closes 2003 as the 3rd most searched for item of the year.

In the most searched for movies of 2003 Cowboy Bebop: The Movie ranked 19th and 5% of Matrix related terms were for The Animatrix (The Matrix was the most searched for movie).
