The Lycos search engine's top search terms charts shows that anime is more popular than pictures of Britney Spears.

The Lycos 50 Top 10 Search Terms for the Week Ending August 6, 2005:

1) Britney Spears
2) Pamela Anderson
3) Neopets
4) Dragonball
5) Jessica Simpson
6) Poker
7) Paris Hilton
8) Pokemon
9) Inuyasha
10) WWE

Anime terms take over four of the top 10 spots on this week's Lycos 50,
including Neopets (#3), the popular virtual pet site, which reached its
highest rank ever with web users following news that the Neopets franchise was recently purchased by MTV.

Just behind Neopets are weekly web favorites, Dragonball (#4) and
Pokemon (#8), while Japanese anime cartoon female heroine, Inuyasha (#9), jumps into the top 10.

Meanwhile, five years ago this week, Britney Spears hit number one on The Lycos 50 for the first time ever, and today Britney Spears (#1) once again reigns supreme among web users.
