Blog anniversary

I got the notification yesterday that it’s been a year since I started this blog, and despite how it might look I don’t expect to abandon it.  (Maybe making this a good long post is what I need to get back into the habit?)

So, how has the year gone?

My most busy month was back in November, which isn’t too surprising since that’s also still the month when I blogged the most. (What is surprising is that those posts seem to have been more long-term popularity than many of my later ones too; in the last week when I posted nothing new except a reblog, “NaBloPoMo” has gotten the second most views of any tag/category, after “anime”.)

And now, some lists.

Top “recent” commenters (if this isn’t the same as the top all-time commenters I apologize to whoever got left out; I don’t think I know how to check that), not counting myself:

1. mochirochi – her most recent post is about a movie based on a manga: Trailer: Heroine Shikkaku – Live Action Movie

2. NotAPunkRocker – her most recent post is It’s 9 to 11 Somewhere

3. nikki – her most recent post is Infinity Dreams Award…and Indefinite Hiatus

4. miharusshi, whose most recent post is [ASS] #16 – Let’s Go

5. Jay Dee – his latest post is about one of Jupiter’s moons: Astronomy Quick Facts – Aoede

Most commented-on post: Anime Challenge Bonus: Favorite Scene

Search Engine Terms

“sailor moon 8 bit music” – here

“bird transformations cartoon pictures” – uh…

“violence jack and devil man crossover” – I think the basic idea is that the main character of Violence Jack is a reincarnation of the main character of Devilman, after the universe gets reset or something.

“coleco gemini donkey kong” – My first video game!

“best super robot transformation” – How about this one:

“mecha that changed anime” – That might be worth a whole post, but for now, a partial list: the four most influential mecha series, in chronological order, are probably Mazinger Z, Gundam, Macross, and Evangelion.

“if the law of equivalent exchange in fullmetal alchemist is a scientific law how can it be ignored” – That’s really specific. My answer would be because it’s not a truly absolute law, it’s just close enough to be treated as one in everyday situations. Similar to Newton’s law of gravity in real life; it’s not 100% absolute, but outside of extreme situations the differences between it and general relativity are small enough to ignore for practical purposes.

“super cartoon smash ball z great ape” – I have no idea what this person was looking for.

“facebook spellcheck doesn’t recognize scientific names” – I’m not surprised.

 

That ALMOST makes sense

For the first time, someone has gotten to this blog with an “adult” search term. Specifically, my search engine terms for yesterday include “futanari”. (Japanese for “hermaphrodite”, in English pretty much only refers to the hentai variety. )

Okay, I’ve used that word on my blog once, so I guess I could understand it. (It was a video of the song from a series of that nature. Still probably not what they had in mind.)

Except for one thing; that particular post does not have any views for yesterday. So, uh, what?

Search engine terms

I’m seeing “unknown search terms” more often so this kind of post might get less common.

“1st transforming mecha” – This is from yesterday and seems to have found the most relevant post already, but there were no hits yesterday for this one that says a little more about Raideen.

“blue transformer drill” – If you weren’t looking for Cybertron Menasor, maybe it was Twin Twist?

“katebasma sto tablet angry birds transformers” – It’s Greek to me… actually I’m pretty sure it’s misspelled Greek.

“worst happy meal toys ever” – The only time I’ve mentioned Happy Meal toys I was talking about what are probably some of the better ones…

“fullmetal alchemist dog die” – I hope this wasn’t the same person who searched for “anime challenge pets”…

 

Search Engine Terms

“divergent dystopia”, “tris anti hero divergent”, “divergent characters based on enlightenment” -Okay, I’m not sure what that last one had in mind, but it’s interesting how my very first non-test post keeps showing up in searches.

“anime challenge pets” – Okay, sure, I guess someone might search for that specifically.

“super robot wars og theme song” – Not entirely sure which one you meant, but here are the two most likely:

In keeping with the crossover theme of this week’s posts, here is ROCKS, the theme from the PS2 SRWOG games, in a decidedly non-OG video.

And here’s the full version of MAXON, the OP from the anime series Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector, with a crossover picture.

“is project x zone canon” – I think so, but I didn’t go into much detail there.  This might get long.

Search Engine Terms

I was looking over my search engine terms and these stood out.

“anime hair that goes up then down” – I assume that search found this, but if it didn’t, here you go.

“anime with a crazy main character” – What it actually found was probably the same set of posts, but since I mentioned Ryoma Nagare maybe that’s okay.

“zoe quinn dark enlightenment” – I didn’t know what “Dark Enlightenment” was and I kind of wish I still didn’t. I still don’t know why anyone was searching for that phrase, though; neither Zoe Quinn nor ‘gamergate’ is suggested to be connected to ‘Dark Enlightenment’ on any page that my search found, not even the ones that seemed prone to conspiracy theories.

What’s a “marcbot space spino”?

I was looking at my search engine terms and noticed a few things. Most of them have had something to do with either Spinosaurus or the Cannae Drive (the quantum vacuum plasma thruster), which seems to go against the “long posts index better” advice I’ve heard.

But one term I saw a few days about was “marcbot space spino”. What? I’ve never even mentioned MARCbot (until now). I can actually guess how my blog came up for that search  (“space” and “spinosaurus” are consecutive in my tag cloud.), but why was anyone searching for that word salad in the first place?
