Because it amuses me here are the top 5 posts for the 1st quarter of 2013:

  1. Bodacious Space Pirates (2012): (hopefully not) Final Thoughts.
  2. What are YOUR Comfort Anime? Enquiring minds (well mine) want to know
  3. Dvořák’s 9th and Shin Sekai Yori
  4. Girls Und Panzer (2012 – 2013?): Second Thoughts
  5. Girls Und Panzer (2012): First Thoughts

The popularity of the Bodacious Space Pirates post from last year reflects the seemingly endless optimism with respect to getting a 2nd, or even 3rd, season. Sorry, still not happening.

The Comfort Anime post evidently struck a chord somewhere: the only post from this quarter to make the list, and also the one with the most comments ever.

The Shin Sekai Yori post was a throwaway after watching one episode, and I suspect that the sudden popularity means that Dvořák’s 9th symphony From the New World has become critically important to the storyline. However I’m way behind on this series and the experience of getting spoilers from blog hits is noteworthy for its novelty.

The two Girls Und Panzer posts were probably due to the impending release of the final two episodes, and I expect these to drop away after this.
