Anime Analytics

Analyzing the global anime scene

About This Data

This data was scraped from MAL (MyAnimeList), and then became available here. MyAnimeList is an anime and manga social networking and social cataloging application website run by volunteers. The site provides its users with a list-like system to organize and score anime and manga. With this information, users can find out more about their favorite animes, look for new anime to watch in the future, or even use an analytical lens and try to understand what makes successful shows successful. This dataset includes the title, type, mean rating, number of scoring users, status, number of episodes, start date, end date, source, and SO much more.

Things to try in the data set:

Group Data

Roll data up into groups of values within a column to look for trends. Place groups inside of groups to drill down another level, then group again!

Filter Data

Use the filters to narrow down the file to the values that interest you most. Only show values that include, exclude, contain, or are greater than a value (to name a few). Then add another level of filtering with AND / OR logic to dive deeper.

Search Data

Not sure where to start? Use search to find values in the file and then go back and filter or group the entire data set down to just that value.

Key Insights

Overview

Whether you have been a fan for years, or this is your first time hearing about it, the global anime market size was valued at USD 24.80 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 26.89 billion in 2022. “Anime refers to a specific style of cartoon produced or inspired by Japanese animation. Think of it this way: all anime shows are cartoons, but not all cartoons are anime. The art style associated with anime is very unique and recognizable. You’re probably familiar with the large eyes, wild hair, long arms and limbs, and more. This exaggerated design helps the characters more easily express emotions — of which there are plenty in anime”(source)
