10 States in the U.S. That Are The Biggest Anime Lovers

The U.S. (the United States of America, or commonly called the USA) is a country that consists of 50 states and more than 327 million of citizens.

Now, this is what I was interested in the most.

The most popular queries (in overall) were:

  • wallpapers

The most popular queries and topics that are new and rising:

  • Demon Slayer: Kimentsu no Yaiba (considering how popular it is, no wonder)

  • Isekai (fans of the alternate world, huh?)

    I’m kind of confused by your Washington entry. By a lot of this about numbers and then the DC stuff.

    Yes, I’m from there.

      I was confused about it (I am European).

      Now I fixed it (at least I hope). Is it fine now? 😀

        Yeah, it gets confusing here to because we do have to say “Washington state”.

        And yeah, that’s fine. Thank you.
