Hi

I'm the head of the volunteer department at a convention called Anime Detour and I'm trying to decide what type of prizes to get. What are some of the popular animes out there?

Naruto, One Piece, Bleach (since they are considered the Big 3)...

More recently, though:

Sword Art Online
Attack on Titan
Tokyo Ghoul

(There are others; I just can't think of anything else at the moment... )

You can also take a look at the popular anime lists on community ranking sites like MAL and Hummingbird.

If it helps, there's a somewhat old thread on Reddit that lists the top selling anime from 1979 through 2013 here: Reddit

BUT... if you're using these as prizes, keep in mind that tastes will vary pretty widely from one person to another. (Edit: plus, sales numbers can be skewed by unrelated promotional tie-ins, too)

The Big 3 are considered Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach.

Free! is also notably popular, though mainly among young ladies. As are other sports anime such as Haikyuu!! or Kuroko no Basket. Many of KyoAni's works could be qualified as popular, actually; Haruhi Suzumiya, Clannad, K-ON!, Hyouka, Kyoukai No Kanata etc.

Some of the popular anime from last season: Tokyo Ghoul, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, Dramatical Murder (girl series, it's a Boys Love), Zankyou no terror

Then there's also these . The first Sailor Moon series. Cowboy Bebop. Evangelion. Death note. Code Geass. Attack on Titan / Shingeki no Kyojin. Fullmetal Alchemist. Soul Eater. Durarara!! Psycho pass. Ouran High school host club. The echelon of series related to Monogatari. Kuroshitsuji / Black Butler S1, S2, and most recently Book of Circus, Higarashi, Kill la Kill, Oreimo etc. etc.

It seems best when they're going to be prizes, though. Broadest appeal and all that.

Insomnist, you are an intelligent person. I would like to believe I am an intelligent person. I was hoping we can have an intelligent conversation.

What do you want?

I just have a relative who helps run conventions for a living, and it's pretty much guaranteed she won't know much about what the subject matter is beforehand. Without making any assumptions about the OP, if they're in a similar situation I just think it'd be great if we could aim to be helpful if we can since they dropped by and not troll the thread much.

I've never been to a convention though, so I'm not really sure what kind of prizes would be popular.

Grand prize could be a neko mimi headset (the ones that moves on their own).

get some posters: any type is fine, just not the precure stuff.

Oppai mouse pads can be a good score.

Perhaps you can gift cr subscriptions <- this is a good prize, free anime.

VIP pass to an event, such as the cosplay contest (HUGE PLUS, best of all, it is free).

There should be VAs there, perhaps get a poster and have them sign it and make it a prize.

now that i look at the thread more carefully, people just listed random anime because all they read was "popular anime."
