According to Google, Chainsaw Man has been the Most Popular Anime of Fall 2022 globally.
Google Trends’ report of anime-related queries among 51 countries during the fall anime season confirms that Chainsaw Man is the Most Popular Anime in the World. Not only that, but out of the 51 countries from the data, Chainsaw Man is the Most-Searched Anime in 49 of those countries.
It should be noted that this list is based only on the popularity of the seasonal anime that are ongoing right now. Overall, One Piece still comfortably sits on top as the Biggest Anime in the World in Google.
The hype surrounding Chainsaw Man was unlike anything ever before.
The hype surrounding Chainsaw Man had been insane all year, and the anticipation for the anime’s release was unlike anything we have ever seen in the medium. And while it may not have maintained the popularity and hype it garnered during its premiere, it has been the Most Popular Anime from the Fall Season Globally on Google since the day it premiered.
The anime adaptation has also given the manga series a huge boost, as expected, which has landed the manga among the Top 20 Best-Selling Manga Series for the Fiscal Year of 2022. The manga series has already sold over 1.2 million copies since the premiere of the anime.
Chainsaw Man is the Most Popular Anime of Fall 2022 in North America.
According to Google Trends, the countries in which Chainsaw Man is the Most Popular Anime right now are as follows: Japan, USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Newzealand, Ukraine, South Korea, Russia, Kazakhstan, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, Hungary, Vietnam, Poland, Romania, Costa Rica, Thailand, Morocco, Argentina, Portugal, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil, Israel, Indonesia, Mexico, India, Philippines, Colombia, Algeria, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Egypt, Ecuador, Singapore, Malaysia, Peru, Taiwan, Hongkong, Turkey, Bangladesh, and Bolivia.
In Iran, the series is the joint Most Popular Anime of Fall 2022 alongside SPY x FAMILY. Chainsaw Man has truly been a mammoth hit for Jump, and we just can’t wait to see what heights of popularity and success it will reach.
My Hero Academia is more popular than Chainsaw Man in France.
The Second Most Popular Anime in the World based on Google queries for the Fall 2022 Anime Season is My Hero Academia. The series beat Chainsaw Man in France and South Africa and has been the Most Searched Anime in both these countries.
My Hero Academia is currently airing its stellar sixth season right now, and after a very disappointing Season 5, it has finally managed to win the fans back, with the anime doing a splendid job at adapting the best and most pivotal arc in the story yet.
New episodes air every Saturday on Crunchyroll in North America and on Netflix in South Asia.
SPY x FAMILY is the Third Most Popular Anime of Fall 2022 around the world. Both the anime and the manga are breaking all sorts of records in Japan, and it has been another massive hit for Shueisha.
The show’s family-friendly appeal and the lighthearted comedy-filled story have managed to captivate the hearts of many. The anime is popular for the polar opposite reasons from Chainsaw Man, with its easygoing and wholesome nature being its most significant selling point. It has been a refreshing and utterly enjoyable slice-of-life anime, and hopefully, long may this anime continue to get the love that it deserves.
In fourth place is Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War, the much-awaited return of one of the big three. While many remember the latter part of the Bleach series as less than any sort of remarkable, the Thousand Year Blood War has delivered in every single episode so far.
From the animation to the music and soundtrack Bleach is known for, Pierrot has done a fabulous job with the production. Bleach is back, and it is glorious.
Blue Lock is the best of the rest and has garnered a decent amount of popularity globally. According to Google Trends, the anime has been searched more than Mob Psycho 100, Golden Kamuy, and the rest of the bunch from Fall 2022.
Blue Lock is a sports anime that is shonen and anime in just every sense. If you think Kuroko’s Basketball is detached from reality, this one is miles off of it. It’s absurd and so over the top, and that is what makes it so utterly enjoyable and fun to watch. If you haven’t checked it out, you definitely should.
