Dragonball Series hands down..it's very profitable simply from the series and the games...not to mention the other stuff that they have (toys ect.)

small fry..



bandai has been making loads of money off the gundam franchise for 30 years now..
in fact, they're the ones who pioneered the idea of merchandise.. they essentially create anime so they can sell the merchandise

Yeah I agree that it is Prince of Tennis and also Detective Conan
All of its film anime or live eaned billion yen and its existence of 10 years is the evidence it is a bankable anime


A bllion yen is only 10 million dollars or so. Thats nothing compared to DBZ, pokemon, doraemon, naruto, Bleach,etc....

I'm thinking Gundam and DBZ. Gundam because their franchise has been going on for a while now and still making money and yes...they too have there own theme park as well...or atleast there building one at Mt. Fuji...can't get any bigger than that! And DBZ because of all the dvds, toys, movies, cards, and whatever else they have to merchandise. Pokemon ain't the only one who got alot of stuff out their either!

Dragonball has to be up there already. Add to the fact that there's a live movie being made for the US. If it doesn't bomb, then it'll rake in that much more money.

Naruto has already become somewhat of a mainstream title to the level of DBZ.

it's gotten to the point where even people who don't like anime or care for it still knows what naruto is.

however in terms of years of popularity and devoted fanbase, Gundam is still #1. It's one of those timeless anime where even the old-skool ones are heavily respected.

it will take a while before any other shows catch up to that level.

Gundam and DBZ.

Yoshiyuki Tomino and Akira Toriyama probably have 10 private islands each by now. xD
