Budget Direct, which is an Australian insurance seller, wanted to do something to attract the internet’s attention.
Netflix Originals were the starting point for this mission. The company uses Google’s Keyword Planner to work out what the most searched for Netflix produced titles in every country in the world has is, looking back over the last 12 months.
I don’t know where you are, but the odds are in my favour if I guess the most popular anime in your country is The Seven Deadly Sins.
Yep, that map is a break out of the anime only results from Budget Direct‘s research.
The company also looked into;
- Kids Shows
- TV shows
- TV Drama
- TV Comedy
- Reality Shows
I guess each one is potentially a different audience to reach out too.
Of course, Geek Native and readers can speculate on why The Seven Deadly Sins was so popular. The anime was changing studio between seasons, and there was plenty of concern that the baton would be dropped.
There was also a concern when early clips of the Imperial Wrath of the Gods censored blood splatter. In this case, The Seven Deadly Sins searches are as much due to concern from current fans as it could be interest in new.
Castlevania also gets a look in, especially around central Europe. Again; we can speculate why!
Beastars dominates South America. It likely polls in the top three in most places. The feature-length Blame! and Ultraman are both strong performers, but really, it’s the motley crew and their battle against the invading demons that cover the globe with their presence.
