Japanese Wikipedia = “AV, AKB48 & SAO”


Wikipedia’s otapedic tendencies have again been attracting attention, this time with a national comparison of the most viewed Wikipedia pages revealing the most viewed page on the Japanese edition in 2012 was a list of porn stars, followed by AKB48 and a long list of anime, as compared to the English version’s fascination with Facebook and the Chinese edition’s love of Japanese porn.

The 10 most viewed articles on ja.wikipedia.org for 2012:

1. List of AV actresses 18,569,543

2. AKB48 7,133,542

3. Momoiro Clover Z 5,979,052

4. ONE PIECE 5,211,171

5. Arashi (group) 5,089,781

6. Taira no Kiyomori 5,000,971

7. Sword Art Online 4,956,457

8. Kuroko’s Basketball 4,782,796

9. Neon Genesis Evangelion 4,347,356

10. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure 3,799,078

This is of course not the first time Wikipedia’s pronounced national drift has been remarked upon.

China’s shares Japan’s love of porn (and indeed most of her porn stars) and is impressively subversive, although just what is behind their fascination with favicons is not clear:

1. Baidu 4,907,569

2. Favicon 3,956,858

3. Wiki 3,340,748

4. Falun Gong 2,897,659

5. List of AV actresses 2,729,207

6. Wang Lijun incident 2,554,837

7. Bo Xilai 2,319,808

8. AV actress 2,173,394

9. Tiananmen Square protests 2,145,147

10. Running Man (Korean show) 2,123,488

By way of comparison, the same ranking for en.wikipedia.org, bearing a depressing resemblance to the sort of thing to grace the top page of Yahoo!:

1. Facebook 32,647,942

2. Wiki 29,613,759

3. Deaths in 2012 25,418,587

4. One Direction 22,351,637

5. The Avengers (2012 film) 22,268,644

6. Fifty Shades of Grey 21,779,423

7. 2012 phenomenon 20,619,920

8. The Dark Knight Rises 18,882,885

9. Google 18,508 719

10. The Hunger Games 18,431,626
