"A Cruel Angel's Thesis" Tops Anime Karaoke Charts for 6 Years in a Row

Followed by "Attack on Titan" anime 1st OP

One of the largest Japanese karaoke companies, XING announced the rankings for the most popular songs based on their online karaoke service JOYSOUND in 2013 (counted from January 1 to November 30) today. The No.1 song in the anime/tokusatsu/game category this year is, again, the 1995-1996 TV anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion's OP theme "A Cruel Angel's Thesis." The song has topped the chart for 6 years in a row at least since 2008 (no data before 2007). The only new comer in the top 20 ranking is Linked Horizon's "Guren no Yumiya," the 1st OP song for the Attack on Titan TV anime, and the top-selling anime song of the year.
