This week's article view ranking has turned out to be a cut-throat competition because we've had two big names in the game; Lum-chan from a famous Japanese manga classic, The Return of Lum and Mami Tomoe from another popular Japanese animation, Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Both of them also enjoy a large population of international fans. Let's see who has got the last laugh.
The first prize goes to Mami Tomoe. Puella Magi Madoka Magica's recent news of its movie adaptation and game adaptation must have helped it. To be fare, however, I should say that it was winning by a nose. This week's God-no-one-saw-it-coming award goes to Tomica. I knew that we have ardent fans of their plarail, model railway, in Japan, but it seems like they got fans outside of Japan as well.
On the other hand, this week's oh-wait-we-thought-you-guys-would-love-it-though award goes to the Booby Prize winner Finger-shaped Earphone Jack Plug. I guess the Japanese horror movie trend didn't do much for this one. Alright, that's it for this week's article view ranking. Stay tuned and we'll surprise you with fresh articles.
