With over 17 hours of simulcasts to watch every week on Crunchyroll this season, keeping up with current anime can take as much time as a job! But what’s the best of the season? Everyone’s got their own opinion, of course, but sometimes, data can tell a fuller story, can get you closer to the anime most beloved among your neighbors. Today, we’ll be looking at the continent of Europe, and examining the most popular new simulcast in each country!
A quick note on methodology: this map is looking at which show has the most current viewers as of the most recent episode by state, excluding any continuing titles from the previous season. That's why sequels like Overlord II are included here, but anime such as Black Clover, Dragon Ball Super, or BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS are absent, despite their popularity.
Without further delay, here’s our map of Europe ~ !
Particularly compared to our map of the United States, this map is incredibly diverse. With more than a dozen anime taking one of the slots on the map, there’s no clear hierarchy in Europe as we’ve seen in other maps. citrus is the most frequent favorite on the continent, with twelve countries smitten by the drama surrounding Yuzu and Mei.
Interestingly, Europe’s most populous countries are split on their favorite anime. Although both Russians and Germans prefer DARLING in the FRANXX, Turkey is celebrating fandom with Sanrio Boys, France is logging in for Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody, and the UK won’t log off until they catch the latest Overlord II episode.
On a personal note, I’m thrilled to see the overwhelmingly charming Laid-Back Camp make an appearance here. While Malta and the Vatican aren’t the biggest countries in the world, I’m happy to know these places have such great taste!
