But take a look at the national rankings and not many followers of the developed countries, Sweden, Chile, Canada and is the top.Unfortunately Japanese YouTubers are not ranked yet.

The No.1 Pew Die Pie videos is here.

This video alone boasts  about 75 million times. I am sure English is crucial to get counts in the world of YouTube.

The next hit song of the Pico?

Pico’s new song “NEO SUNGLASSES (neo /PIKOTARO” is published 10/6 already have been played 11 million times.

But unfortunately this video is the Japan language lyrics.  I think probably this video does not attract English-speaking viewers as PPAP, especially children. I hope he keeps playing performances in English even though he is not good at English (and actually he is not fluent).  This Japanese performance reduce the possibility from the beginning.
