The anime industry is much bigger than Kpop overall but I'm not sure how much is in their countries of origin and how much is international.

Anime. I think it's about time J-pop to overcome K-Pop. J-pop is actually a good music.

I just did a social experiment, asked my friend what he thought of K-Pop, all he said was those fancams he keep seeing. I asked him what he thought of Anime, and he listed crazy animation, DBZ yelling, Jojo, Hentai Fanservice, weebs, and the occasional twitter trend.

Seems obvious IMO, anime is a lot more popular. K-Pop is a genre of music while Anime is a genre of entertainment, it's like asking what's more popular, Rock Music or Hollywood itself, the latter is likely to win in the end.

@faradaysloth: I remember my friend on Instagram whose follower's are 95% female JapaneseLiterature students making an Insta story about "K-Pop or Anime"... It was like 80% to 20% with K-Pop winning. That's crazy, I mean, we're talking about Japanese Literature students right here! I thought they were all weebs.

Idk about how it works outside of my country, but I can tell for sure that K-Pop is much more popular than anime among female Indonesians... Being one of them and all. I personally prefer anime myself though.

Lol, K pop is more popular. Most of you guys are virgins living in mothers basement and your friend is going to be virgin or neckbeard who likes Anime. K Pop has become more mainstream even in West( BTS) especially after Gagnam Style went Viral plus K pop hugely popular and mainstream in Asian countries.

Yeah here in America, outside of teenage and young adult females, K-Pop is more viewed as a, well, annoyance or meme type, but that's where I live.
