In effect, the less a title has votes, the more it is pulled towards the mean (7.5057). In other words, these are the titles that many people agree are great. (formula)
bayesian rating = (v ÷ (v+m)) × R + (m ÷ (v+m)) × C
where:
R = average for the anime
v = number of votes for the anime

In other words, the popularity is the straight average score of a title (the value in the rating column) multiplied by the number of votes.
