Maybe you were too bored. Maybe you were tricked by the word "sexy." Or maybe you are a closeted fan of Tabroid weekly article rankings. I don't know why you opened this page but you won't be sorry you did because this week's ranking has a wide variety of articles. Let's check them out.
No.1 article is a review about an optimizer app, Sakusaku, that speeds up your Android phone. The app itself was a hit in Japan because of its practicality and the cute panda, but I didn't exactly expect this to catch this much attention from abroad. If this means there are not so many apps like this out there, this could be a business chance. Booby prize goes to another Japanese app that counts "Likes!" on facebook for you. Both of them are in Japanese, but one comes in first and the other in last. I guess this goes to show how hard it is to predict what kinds of apps become popular outside Japan. I like that No.5 is about beautiful language teachers because it shows Japanese people's passion for foreign languages and beautiful girls.
Having such a variety in our ranking means having viewers with different interests. That's good news for us editors. But who knows, in next ranking we might have five different articles from No.1 through No.5 all about Japanese animations. Past rankings have shown that it's really hard to read what happens.
