It's always fun to know how people abroad see Japan differently from the way we see it. Our article view ranking never fails to make me re-think about my country, especially when the most popular article is about poop. Oops, it's not about poop. It's about a pet poop. Yay Japan...
I have no idea how come raising a pet poop got so much attention from abroad. I just hope it changed people's image for Japan for the better.
The interesting thing is that in the Japanese version of the ranking this pet poop article would have been ranked close to the last and the article about Friendpix that was the least popular here could have been the top of the rank. Cultural gap much?
The second place goes to show LINE's global popularity. Especially in Asia, LINE seems to enjoy a great amount of support. My personal favorite here is Nikkan Kuma Nurie. I guess coloring knows no border.
Okay, let's hope we'll have more fun poop surprise in the next ranking. Stay tuned!
