Every anime fan has heard of, or even watched, ‘Naruto’, ‘Bleach’ and ‘One Piece’. Till this day it remains in our hearts as the major mainstream animes of the 1990s – 2000s. With the end of Naruto and Bleach, and the continuation of One Piece, it makes us wonder what made these three animes so popular and why/if the series have ‘fallen’.
While interesting, this is a topic that's already been done. Super Eyepatch Wolf for instance covers the struggles of both Bleach (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACq7tgjHdGA) and Naruto (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74REUpOg2B4). Many video essays on the appeal and popularity of One Piece have also been done. If someone were to pick this topic, I suggest approaching it from a broader angle... using the Big 3 as case studies for how certain animes become popular. Is it their appropriation of existing historical icons/myths/legends? Is it their ability to adapt the original manga (if any) in an accurate and/or respectful manner? The binary between anime and manga should probably be considered, too. – Starfire4 years ago
