Crunchyroll Reveals Map of its Most Popular Simulcast Anime of Winter 2018 for the U.S.


The winter season of anime is well underway for 2018, and with all the exciting new shows plus the leftovers from last season, there seems to be no lack of anime to watch whatsoever. Crunchyroll seems to have picked up on this and hence have revealed a popularity map for their simulcast shows in the U.S.

The map in question shows Crunchyroll’s most viewed series in each individual state for the Winter 2018 season, based the most recent episode viewed by the consumers of the shows. Unfortunately, it excludes continuing titles from the fall 2017 season, so apologies in advance for those expecting to see heavyweight titles like March Comes in Like a Lion and The Ancient Magus’ Bride. With that out of the way, on to the results!

Crunchyroll's Map of U.S SimulcastsDARLING in the FRANXX takes the cake due to its wacky and wild action scenes, with enough people watching in 12 states to make it the most popular series! Overlord II, on the other hand, catered to fans of its original source material and highly successful first season and managed to emerge victorious in the 3 most populated states of the United States. Pop Team Epic also appears to have captured quite the audience with its surreal and ludicrously over-the-top approach to comedy.

Some other honorable mentions include Citrus, with its modern approach to homosexual romance, Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody, with its tried and tested “transported to another world” anime, or Isekai anime for short. Fans of original Cardcaptor Sakura also showed their undying loyalty to the franchise and even managed to make it a victor in a select few states.

Crunchyroll currently has a whopping 53 anime simulcasts this season and since this isn’t the first time that Crunchyroll has done something like this, we can expect many more such maps in the future!
