I wonder why is One Piece so low in America, but so high in Japan.  Then why is Naruto the number 1 Anime in America

Naruto is pretty big everywhere.  I think One Piece is super hardcore on the power of friendship and teamworks, which makes it a homerun in collectivist societies but it goes so far with that idea that it doesn't quite resonate in societies that are more individualistic and the other elements of it aren't able to overcome that in those regions. 

That's my nice way of explaining my view on it...

Maybe One Piece would have done a little better in the states if it hadn't had such a shitty debut. Thanks 4 Kids!
