When an anime is good there’s no denying it. The ones that get around to other countries and make an impact there often can predict which fandoms will last and which ones will pitter out. Crunchyroll has compiled a few lists for Spanish Heritage month and one of them was which anime were the most popular in Latin America. Not surprisingly some of the ones included are “Naruto,” “Demon Slayer,” and “One Piece” that seem to be popular almost everywhere. Find the complete list below!

What is surprising is that “Sailor Moon” is not included on this list. Many people from Latin America love the series but perhaps it’s a bit too old now to be considered for the list. If you haven’t seen what anime Crunchyroll’s Fall slate you should. A lot of these on the list are going to be added to, like “Spy X Family” which will be continuing its run. “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” is one of the ones that is forever being put out. Fans just can’t get enough of the Hidden Leaf!
