What are the “Big Three” of anime and why does Attack on Titan generate debate about it?

Casual fans of manga and anime may never have heard of the ‘Big Three‘. Well, you may not have heard of the term, but of its members.


The ‘Big Three’ is the title given to the three manganimes that led to the worldwide popularity of anime in the 1990s. 2000: Naruto, One Piece and Bleach.


The popularity of the three sh?nen, picking up the baton left by Dragon Ball in the nineties, helped to consolidate the success of manga and anime in the West as never seen before.

But those times are behind us. Bleach ended a long time ago (although it is about to return), Naruto is maintained thanks to its sequel and One Piece, well, not everything is left behind.

This change of time has led some fans of Attack to the titans (Shingeki no Kyojin) claim that Bleach “fall” from the list of the ‘Big Three’ and be replaced by the series based on the manga by Hajime Isayama (Isayama Hajime).

In less than a rooster sings, the debate has been generated on networks, of course, with fans raising their hands to their heads for the fact that they want to touch the ‘Big Three’.

Others explain that the title is not a torch that the different franchises are passing, but rather commemorates a situation that will not be repeated: the worldwide rise of anime as we know it today.

The spectrum of answers, of course, ranges from the sensible and polite to the “but what to speak piece of…”. You know, Twitter…

Others have joined the debate, claiming that if Attack on Titan makes it into the ‘Big Three’, Night’s Watch (Kimetsu no Yaiba) should too.

Come on, it never rains to everyone’s liking in any fandom, and everything ends the same, with looooong debates on Twitter.
