Joysound, a Japanese karaoke system provider revealed the annual rankings for Anisong tracks that were sung the most at Joysound karaoke outlets throughout Japan. The data was collected from both Joysound and UGA series systems between January 1st to December 31st of 2013, and not surprisingly the same song landed at the top for the 7th year, while a new song released in 2013 came in second.
