I don't understand the "Popular" category.

Is it based on star ratings/reviews?
Is it based on the amount of views that particular anime gets?

Today I've seen anime's like World Trigger, Ace of the Diamond, The Testament of Sister New Devil etc. high on the "Popular" section of Anime. However some of these anime's only have a few user ratings and aren't the best.

Since profile achievements are given based only on web browser activity, my own speculation is that it is based on ranking the amount of web player hits over some unspecified rolling amount of time, probably the last 24 hours, since oftentimes shows being simulcast will show up on the day they have an episode release.

Totally unofficial, of course. I doubt anyone representing CR will ever reveal that.
