Top News Articles of 2013

by Christopher Macdonald,

2013 was a big year for ANN's news team. You might not have noticed the difference, but we made a few changes to the way things are done, and we also invested in some special resources in Japan. The result, more news articles than ever before (539 in December 2013 versus 338 in December 2012), and a ton of exclusive news that we bring to you first.

So let's take a look at the top news articles of 2013. The end, and continuation, of the Fairy Tail anime dominates the list with the top 4 positions. Because this year's list was dominated by a couple topics, we decided to share the top 25 articles instead of the top 10.

Please note, this list is just the top 25 most read articles. It doesn't necessarily represent the most important news topics of the year.
