Can you name an anime that is more popular overseas than in Japan?

Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World) sold something like 300 units per volume in Japan yet I've seen a lot of western viewers call it a masterpiece.

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt probably does better over here in the U.S

Deadman Wonderland was a flop in Japan and far more popular over in North America

Didn't Trigun get a movie just because of how popular it was in the west?

yup, this is what I was going to say. Cartoon Network is the reason the (absolutely amazing) second season was produced and without it, we never would have seen the conclusion of this wonderful tale...

Hmm, heard it was a commercial flop in Japan and yet I only ever hear praise about it when discussed by Westerners. Got any numbers?

Fairy Tail apparently.
People say it gets bad tv ratings. But I find it hard to belive because of how many people on MAL and other anime sites say it's great

Number one. Number two. Those are the only numbers I know. Number five.

I thought Gurren Lagann was popular in Japan.

Deadman Wonderland. Show was pretty popular here in the states, but DVD/Blu-Ray sales and ratings in Japan were TERRIBLE, it bombed so hard. We will probably never see a second season because of that. It is really unfortunate because the show desperately needs a season two to wrap up all the loose ends.

I'm surprised Cowboy Bebop wasn't the first mention and it took until the second page for it to get mentioned.
