The following is a list of the most watched series globally on the streaming service Crunchyroll. Important to note that certain region are very limited in choice of content, and this affects certain series’ level of popularity.
North and Central America
It seems Russia is more fond of fanservice than its European neighbors.
North Korea’s favorite appears to be Citrus. This is a surprising twist to be honest but a welcomed one.
Darling in the Franxx is a rather surprising choice for Iran.
Overall, My Hero Academia appears to have really taken the world by storm this year and I’m feeling more confident then ever with my prediction that it could be the next title of the Big 3. Meanwhile, Naruto (Boruto) appears to still dominate in the Shonen world, especially in Africa and Asia. I was surprised to not see One Piece more prominently featured.
