The study found that the series starring Luffy and company is the one with the highest reception in 25 states.
Where to see One Piece?
The reason why One Piece would have such popularity is based on the fact that it is easy to find its chapters on the internet, due to its dissemination on pages like Crunchyroll. In addition, Netflix, the streaming giant, began to have it on its billboard from June 2020. It should be noted that the anime began broadcasting in 1999.

Pokémon is positioned in second place because it is the most sought after in eight states. CenturyLinkQuote highlights that Pokémon is one of the anime that marked the childhood of many and the one that opened the doors to other anime around the world. Said title began airing in 1998 as part of a promotional campaign for the Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue video games.
In third place, we see Naruto because he was the most wanted in six states. This is not surprising, since this anime established a very peculiar way of running and put the famous ramen on the map.
Anime such as My hero Academy, Death note, and Sailor Moon also appear on the list. After this, netizens wonder why the Attack of Titan anime is ranked lower. The reason is that this anime, according to the survey, is only popular in the state of Utah.
