Denis Murphy writes- Both the Dynasty Warriors and Gundam series are absolutely massive in Japan. Though greatly different in terms of content, both franchises have an equally big following of fans. That said, there is love for these franchises in the West as well, but not to the scale of in Japan. I mean, back in 2009 Japan built a full-scale replica of the RX-78 Gundam. Now that's countrywide fandom for you!
