Candice debuted today in the anime, and I swear her skirt's shorter than Dawn's. Why on Earth would she wear that in the middle of flipping winter?
Yeah, I agree with you, if it weren't for DBZ and Pokemon, none of the other anime you've mentioned would have even been shown in America.
In terms of popularity, I'd rank anime this way:
One Piece (the pirate anime with Luffy)
Sailor Moon (shojo, but had a male fanbase, and imo, it had decent fights)
Yeah, May was pretty crazy. I can't believe she did that. She probably did that on purpose just to tease/flirt with Ash. You know Ash though, he's only interested in winning fights, which Ash kinda won too easily in Hoenn, but at least he actually earned the badges.
Well, it's popular in the sense that it has conventions, I'll give you that. But in terms of having a significant amount of Ratings? well, probably not. The only shows off of the top of my head that ever managed to get decent enough ratings to air the episodes mainstream outside Japan were Pokemon, Yu-gi-Oh, Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, that pirate anime with Luffy, and I think Blue Dragon [that IS an anime, right?]. Oh, and Naruto. Even then, only Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon have ever managed to get actual theatrical releases [by that, I mean they were in theaters for a significant amount of time and not as a special one-day event like the Bleach movie.]. Oh, and the Studio Ghibli films, which I think are the only movies other than Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon to actually warrant theatrical releases outside of Japan.
Not to mention, in I think "Brave the Wave", or was it "Sharpedo Attack", May stripped in front of company [it was offscreen, of course, but still.]. Yes, she did actually strip and didn't merely wear a bathing suit offscreen [Max's reaction to her doing that implied that she actually stripped].
