On Tuesday, Microsoft, Yahoo! and Google released their lists of the top 10 terms on their online search engines for 2009. "Naruto" made the Yahoo! list at #6, beating out such terms as "American Idol" and "NASCAR."

While no anime-related phrases topped the Google list for "Fastest Rising (Global)," some were among those with the largest surge in the last year. Three anime-related terms were on the top 10 list for "Fastest Rising in Entertainment (Global)": "Transformers" at #2, "Naruto Shippuden" at #4, and "anime online" at #8.

No anime-related terms made Microsoft's Bing search website list. "Michael Jackson" topped the lists on all three search websites.
