Paris' 10th annual Japan Expo, which would be the nation's equivalent to America's Anime Expo perhaps, has attracted some new guests this year: Shintarou Akiyama and Yuuichirou Hirata, also known as the Prince of Tennis Musicals' Yuushi Oshitari and Kaoru Kaidou. A third actor, whose name appears to be Ryouzou Katou but who I can't find any info on (perhaps a newbie to TeniMyu?) is also a guest.
It's always interesting to me what otaku stuff catches on in places that are neither Japan nor North America-- Prince of Tennis has never been anywhere near as big here as in Japan, obviously, but apparently it's a bit more popular in France.
Can you think of other cases like this, where a country in Europe or South America or elsewhere latched onto an anime that wasn't as popular in North America?
