I haven't seen it but I have heard of it before. I don't know how popular it is over here though.

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41769858

Hundreds of episodes so it's been around long enough to constantly get the attention of more and more people.
It was also on Adult Swim and/or Toonami for a short time IIRC. Souljaboy is a normie that watches TV.

It's been around for a while, it's just nowhere near as popular in the west as it in Japan. The reason being the tone of it is too strange for western audiences. It's seen as too adult for children and too childish for adults. The anime is called Detective Conan in Japan but had to be renamed for its English dub because of trademark issues.

Then you have adults watching Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh and Naruto in the west. All meant for a younger demographic in Japan.

Except those shows are watched by kids in the west as well. Shows made for kids and shows made for adults can both be enjoyed by adults, but usually on different levels, so it's difficult to work out what level Detective Conan is supposed to be enjoyed on for westerners.

Only a handful of the 800+ episodes, 20+ films and odd OVAs have gotten western release.

Lots of Japanese wordplay makes translating tricky. Also rights ownership issues.


Watch Milky Holmes instead.

Or a serious detective show like Ghost in the Shell or Saint Tail.

They chose pleb-tier Son Goku as Olympic mascot instead of Kaneda and Tetsuo.

Goku isn't even Japanese. He's a ripoff of a Chinese folk hero.

goku is more culturally recognizable than anyone in akira. goku is "the anime character" for over a billion people, i doubt akira has that much cultural reach.

talk shit about dragonball z and akira toriyama all you want, but dragonball is a cultural institution at this point. akira can't hope to have the same reach. sure it has 90s nostalgia behind it, but it was never agressively marketed as hard as dbz was. also it's easier to buy the rights to a series like dbz than a movie like akira.

it never stood a chance to begin with.

Historical influence > recognizably.

And Akira is far more influential than Drangonball ever was or will be. But you '00s kids can't understand that.

Really, something from Ghibli would have been the best choice.
