No, Germany is the most insane one. 80% of population is descendant from rapebabies and whole country hates itself. I guess Conan is followed there because Germans get immensely triggered by anything that has violence, plot, heroics, wholesome families, cute girls or sex. I hope your whole country burns to the ground thanks to migrant crisis and there is zero ethnic german left after 20 years. Fucking pathetic cuckold disgraces.

Get over yourself. Americans judge manga based on looks and One Piece has very unappealing art.

If you like cute girls and teen drama, something that looks like Popeye the Sailor Man isn't going to have it. Bleach and Naruto ruled supreme for very shallow reasons.

Oh, and One Piece sucks now, so there's now a legitimate reason to bash it.

OP suck because the art is retarded, along with the whole premise, hurr pirates with powers.

You do realize even if FUNi dumb got released from ep 1 here and 4kids dub never existed, I still seriously doubt OP would be popular in the US. Pirates are just not well liked here. Ninjas and stuff are super popular here. Pirates are not. All the pirate stereotypes don't help either.

Conan was the shit in Germany. Everyone I know watched it. Germans have a strange obsession with murder mysterys/crime fiction. There is a reason why 'Tatort' (a german crime/detectiv show) is such a huge cultural event that still produces amazing viewing figures even in an age where most people use the internet to watch their media.
>>
>>137730513
Everyone including elementary school children since it was right in their favorite timeslot.
>>
>>137730579
I find it amazing that Conan was shown in the afternoon back then. They wouldn't be able to pull that of anymore,Conan was pretty graphic, heck in the first episode someone gets decapitated on a rollercoaster.Nowadays parents would flip out if something like that was shown to kids at like 2 PM.
>>
>>137730513
Actually, people still request it to air today.
MAXX is frequently being asked by fans to air new episodes.

Thing with Conan was that it had the balls to be uncensored despite the main audience having been elementary schoolers. Like the mummy case where one of the victims was dismembered and her bodyparts carried around under the culprits shirt.
Kidz Zone even brought out fanservice poster like Ran and Sonoko in skimpy angel and devil clothing, like complete stockings and undergarments.

It depends on how TV stations handle anime.

In america, daytime TV for Anime is kinda difficult. For some reason even Naruto has to be edited, even tough it aired at 9pm I think? Detective Conan is unfit in an Adult Swim timeslot.
Tough for some reason Cartoon Network dropped Anime pretty fast alltogether. Then there are butchered adaption of One Piece does not help.

In Germany, it's been very prude like the US. But since private television, we have a tv channel that has aired anime since the 90's. Mostly it was still very old, but the viewerbase preffered over the american cartoons that aired there. Also the channel was kinda of wild and also aired more brutal movies during normal hours. The channel brought up a generation that views Anime as much more sophisticated and passionate than american cartoons. Anime like Rose of Versailles, Cat's Eye and Ranma 1/2 are unproblematic during child programme hours. However the channel at some point lost it's edge and thought copying 4kids was the better idea, so viewership dwindled and anime no longer had an attractive platform.

France had a 10 year run of running edgy and violent cartoons during the 80's and 90's and anime like Saint Seiya and Fist of the North Star became popular. However at some point, anime was looked down upon and teen oriented (with a bit more violence) had no longer a place in kids programming. Detective Conan came under critisism during child hours and was dropped.

Italy and Spain still actually have a popular childrens block during daytime with Anime like Dragon Ball and Shin Chan. Loads of anime not popular in america, got it's following. Namely Lupin III for Italy.

>>137730513
are you fucking 60? I know NOBODY in the 15-30 range who fucking watches tatort.
Only old people watch it and its a disgrace
>>
>>137725741
"apparently"
No, u just say shit
>>
>>137730769
Actually parents can compain, but German Youth Protection doesn't care and views it as unproblematic.

The morale of Conan is always that crime is negative, and chilldren have no problem viewing it. There is reason why Grave of the Fireflies is rated 6 years old an up.
>>
>>137731139
There were multiple channels in germany.
RTL II had Ranma, Cat's Eye, Kickers, Tsubasa, Heidi along with the likes of Digimon, Pokemon and Naruto later on.

VIVA and MTV had Record of Lodoss War, Hellsing, GitS: SAC, Gantz, Escaflowne, X and the likes.

VOX had fucking hentai like Midnight Panther, Tokio Private Police or Rei Lan and occasionally marathoned anime series. Like all of Hellsing or DNA2 in one night.

>>137731294
My parents never complained. They noticed that it had murders and stuff, but apparerntly that is ok for a 2nd grader to watch.

>>137731191
Yo I agree that it is one of the worst things made in german television but Tatort is still huge. I have friends that watch that shit every time it is on but not only that some bars have public viewings which are always packed full of young people. Tatort became kinda popular with hipsters I guess, everytime Tatort is on, twitter is full of tweets about it.

They are retarded to be fair. Either that or I got lied to cause I've been asking why Bleach never really got aired but One Piece or Naruto.
They told me Bleach is 16+ in germany so they can''t air it during day time. Then went on and said Fairy Tail is okay to air.
>>
>>137725741

>>
>>137731294
Yeah Germany is more about the fact if a show glorifies violence, not so much about violence itself.At the end of the day the bad guys were always caught and children learned that crimes are bad.
>>
>>137731346
The smaller channels aired anime too. But it's RTL II where it got a platform for a whole generation that preferred anime over anything else...the uncensored bloody throwdowns of Dragon Ball probably made children awe nationwide.

Sadly the run of the good RTL2 was very short in comparision to the anime airings in France, Italy and Spain.

Pretty much.
And nowadays, violence is mostly censored or saved for the adult block consisting of TG, DxD, AgK, HotD etc.
>>
>>137731346
Kabel1 had Card Captor Sakura and Shaman King
Kika had stuff like Heidi, Maja and Nils Holgerson
>>
>>137731544
Germany trusts kids and their parents a lot more than in the US. Here it is expected that as a parent it is your responsibility to tell your child if it can or can not watch something, if you don't and then you complain about the things your child sees on TV what kind of parent are you? Also children are trusted more to know the difference between reality and fiction thats why drugs blood etc. were not censored here.
>>
>>137731465
>I got lied to
Yep. We never aired Bleach because it's camouflaged shit. Fairy Tail is okay, because even children ccan tell it's shit, but Bleach is like a nasty food stain that you can't get out. Better not air something like that.
>>
>>137731695

>>
>>137731639
>And nowadays, violence is mostly censored

Actually no, MAXX is been pretty good about keeping anime uncut, even at daytime. One Piece and Naruto Shippuden are uncut there.

I think Italy no longer censors their anime either during daytime at smaller channels. Bigger channels always pussy out, even tough show mentally deranged reality TV nonstop.

>>137731821
There's been rumors about Hunter X Hunter and Gintama being added to the current One Piece/Naruto/DBZ Kai block.
I hope it's true.

Mainly for HxH. I cant imagine Gintama dubbed.
>>
>>137731906
Which HxH? First or second adaptation? Still waiting for FMA or FMAB on TV, the German dub is pretty good for an anime dub.
>>
>>137731840
Yeah even now the awful and bigoted term 'Killerspiele' is widely spread in german media. Games were always thought to be 'worse' because games are interactive while tv shows are consumed passivley.

>>137731139
In the US, anime is difficult because the network wants to own and control the production in its entirety. Anime are pretty much finished products.

Same thing happened to Top Gear which the americans stubbornly tried to clone before giving up and just airing the original.
