7. Crayon Shin-chan: 8.9
Written and illustrated by Yoshito Usui, Crayon Shin-chan follows the daily life of a five-year-old Nowara Shinnosuke and his parents, baby sister, dog, neighbors and friends. An anime adaptation of the series began airing on TV Asahi in 1992 and was formally ended on February 5, 2010 due to the death of the author.
As a big-mouth, the protagonist Nowara Shinnosuke always defies logic. Precocious and jealous, he is the so-called mean boy. However, his cheeky character won him many fans across the globe. Even today, his emojis have often appeared in Chinese social media.
