The Big Four
Posted 1/24/12
For some reason I always wanted to ask this question and it has some thing to do with "The Big Four". When i say "The Big Four" I mean Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, and Fairy Tail. I love each and everyone of them one more than others but i want you to tell me what you think. In which order do you think would be right if it was order from amazingly popular to not that amazing?

You forgot Gintama, Pokemon, and I'd put Yu-Gi-Oh are also part of this as well. There is other series out there that can join these "Big" anime but at the moment doesn't seem to as big as these. Anime like Sket Dance and Beelzebub could up for discussion but let's see what the studios decide to do with the anime.

But here's how I'd rank the Big Anime

One Piece
Naruto
Bleach
Gintama
Fairy Tail
Pokemon
Yu-Gi-Oh

Well, if u count the current ongoing animes right now, I would say:

Naruto Shippuden
Bleach
Gintama
One Piece
Fairy Tail

Not in any order but ye. Yu-gi-Oh may also belong to that category but tbh, it's not a direct sequel as the previous 3 seasons so it's disputable. Pokemon probably also belong to that category.

Hmm, you subtly raise a good point here. It would be appropriate to switch from saying "Big 3" to "Big 4", Fairy Tail is plenty far. Being long-running alone isn't enough reason to give "Big" status, hence why Gintama and even Detective Conan and its almost 650 ongoing episodes aren't counted.

Really, in my mind Reborn counts too, I treat it as ongoing. It's pretty clear that they stopped the show as an experiment to avoid all the whiners that complain about every filler. I expect Reborn will return when they can give a lot of content without fillers (personally, I'd rather be watching a show than not watching it; I'd rather them take a shot at fillers).

My personal preference of them in order:
Bleach
Fairy Tail
[Reborn]
Naruto
One Piece

Being stuck at episode 205 on One Piece may have influence on my rank of it, I'm probably missing out on better content others may know.

I'm pretty sure that their overall popularity is directly proportional to their age though, One Piece is so very massive in Japan.

Yes, you are.


Anyway, I think it's still too early to include Fairy Tail.
Longevity should be considered in this kind of list.

We don't know if Fairy Tail would still be as popular in the future so..



1. One Piece
2. Naruto
3. Bleach


These 3 remain as the three biggest shounen titles in the industry.

My order goes like this:

One Piece
Naruto
Bleach
Fairy Tail

Which, if you look at the TV rankings every once in a while, only One Piece cracks the top 10, with One Piece being in there every week and while Naruto very rarely makes the grade. So if you are basing your discussion on being the "biggest" or most popular (shounen) anime, you have to consider Detective Conan and Toriko. Though, understandably, the TV rankings are from an obviously Japanese standpoint while this thread is purely Western.

Out of these, my order is:

Fairy Tail
Bleach (Due to the fact I love Gray, Fairy Tail is just a little higher in enjoyment - I really like both though !)
One Piece (Again, really really like, but just not as good as Fairy Tail and Bleach to me.)
Naruto (Never was into Naruto, and the episode's I have seen are just not good. Don't like it one bit.)
