As of the year 2020, the viewership for the anime category on Netflix has doubled across many regions, with Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back – Evolution leading the most popular anime shows list.

Not only in the U.S., but Mewtwo Strikes Back was also the most-watched show in Asia as well, being the most beloved title in Malaysia, Singapore, and India. While Thailand watched Howl’s Moving Castle, the Philippines preferred Weathering with You, Hong Kong and Indonesia turned to A Whisker Away, and Taiwan’s favorite was Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Netflix recently announced that it will be expanding the anime category by realizing five new projects, and at that time, reports show that more than 100 million households watched an anime title in 2020, with a show or film from the genre reaching Top 10 across 100 different countries.
