When various votes about the most expectant and disappointing anime have been initiated by Japanese anime otaku, another poll is also launched by anime lovers in Europe and America in 2011 spring, about voting for ten of the most famous anime.

Sure enough, the result is different with what Japanese anime lovers vote.

Famous anime in Japan don't appear on the list of top ten. But some connotative works and anime that are less popular in Japan are deeply loved by European and American audiences.

Now, let's take a look at top 10 famous anime in Europe and America.

It's even loved by anime otaku overseas. Thus, it's really unnecessary to talk about the connotative level on this opus, XD.

Top 2: Nichijou

It's emphatically popularized in Kyoto but received a bad result successively. This work, voted to be the most disappointing anime in 2011 spring, won the second place in Europe and America. This sounds really unbelievable.
