Just like title says.
Is Goku the most popular anime character ever?
@mainjp: lol I just realized there is an official Goku day in Japan wtf. Is he thought popular there? Btw who is luffy
Nvm I looked him up. I recognize him, people really think he's more recognizable than Goku? When I wear my Goku shirt out here in America one in like 5-10 people will be like "hell ya awesome shirt DBZ is the best"
Is there any other manga/anime character popular enough to be an ambassador of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics? Or to have their own officially recognized day in Japan?
Sailor Moon, Naruto, Luffy, and Astro Boy are also ambassadors for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Kinnikuman also has a holiday officially recognized in Japan.
It's Pikachu, but Goku isn't far behind. Adults who have never even watched anime recognize Goku and Pikachu, or at least the brand they represent.
This. You can show some random person in a third world country Pikachu, and they'd probably recognize it.
Goku? Ehhh.....much less likely.
