Whatever. I'm going to write this post as though those stats mean something and these posts are popular with real live people. Here's the list, plus my theories on why they're so popular:
1. Post-vacation post
I listed 10 different manga and books in this post, something that always seems to attract
2. Avatar: The Last Airbender, the Complete Book 1 Collection (non-Japanese animation, TV series)
Avatar: The Last Airbender is insanely popular, and with good reason.
3. Amnesia (anime TV series), via Crunchyroll
This TV series made me angry, and it's quite possible that my anger was entertaining. At least Higurashi: When They Cry was supposed to be horror. As far as I know, Amnesia is considered a romance series. I do not understand how something can be considering a romance when the romantic lead (or one of the romantic leads) drugs the heroine and, when she resists, locks her in a cage.
Wow. I get angry even thinking about this series.
4. Avatar: The Last Airbender, the Complete Book 2 Collection (non-Japanese animation, TV series)
Again, Avatar: The Last Airbender is super-popular. So much so that it spilled over onto to two of my posts. Impressive.
5. Chi's Sweet Home (manga, vols. 2-8) by Konami Kanata
Like I said, the Internet loves cats and kittens. Although it's not like this post has any pictures of her. Shouldn't my post about volume 1 have been more popular?
6. Dead Inside: Do Not Enter: Notes From the Zombie Apocalypse (book)
The Internet loves zombies, too.
7. Pandemonium (graphic novel) written by Chris Wooding, illustrated by Cassandra Diaz
If anyone at Scholastic reads my blog: people really, really, really want a second volume of this series. I still have people stumbling across this post, looking for info about the non-existent next volume. Amazingly, they outnumber the people hoping someone has turned Mara, Daughter of the Nile into a movie.
Pandemonium was okay, but essentially unfinished, so I agree with the visitors who'd like another volume. And I also agree with the people who'd like a Mara, Daughter of the Nile movie.
8. Earthrise (e-book) by M.C.A. Hogarth
Earthrise is a self-published science fiction book. I know that Hogarth has quite a few fans, and the cover of this book is absolutely gorgeous. It's still surprising to me that this post somehow racked up over a thousand page views, even if a good chunk of them are spam views.
It's the first book in a still-unfinished trilogy, so maybe that helped attract a few views? Who knows.
I'm really looking forward to the third book, by the way.
9. Black Butler (manga, vol. 1) by Yana Toboso
Everybody loves sexy demon butlers, don't they?
10. The Complete Persepolis (graphic novel memoir) by Marjane Satrapi
Um. Graphic novels are popular? Other than that, I've got nothing. The Complete Persepolis is fairly different from what I usually review.
