...The graphs are just so pretty
. Also, I have this crippling need-to-know complex. And ADD. And...yeah, you know the deal.Heavy Hitters (10K+ stories)( numbersnumbers )
It's been...uh...six months since the last check. This time, can't remember why, used decimals on the grand...oh well, it'll just complicate the comparison algorithm a little...
although I just remembered that I've always hated subtracting. Damn sneaky numbers, always borrowing without asking first!...
But yes! to the numbers: HP went up 21K, Naruto 25.5K, IY 3K. Roughly the same trends as always: Inuyasha fandom is in long-term cooling, Potterdom is still rolling along at the pace its sheer size requires, and the Narutards are still trying their darndest to cream Harry's British clock with a teeny-tiny (but very enthusiastic) Rasengan. Meanwhile, KH, FF7, Pokemon, Bleach, Supernatural, Stargate: SG-1, Avatar, Wrestling (god part of me still can't believe that section exists, and so prolific
at that~ XDDD), High School Musical, Prince of Tennis, Sonic, and House have all bumped up; that can probably be attributed to new material in the respective franchises. Happy news!: we have new members of the Cool Kids clique--Doctor Who and Death Note (w00t ♥). Also, Twilight doubled.( sad )
Also, on the D.Gray-front: pre-February I think the archive had between 500 and 1000 stories; by the 23rd it was 1464; 2536 by the fourth of July; 2637 on the 14th; and the current story count is 4396. If it keeps doubling every six months or so, and I do suspect that this trend will continue, then D.Gray-man will hit the Heavy Hitters in less than a year and work its way up. The second the dub hits major broadcast channels, all the odds are on the side of there-goes-the-neighborhood, here-come-the-numbers.
(this is just part one, I'm coming up soon with something specifics on Naruto and D.Gray-man and characters and all those shiny new toys that have been updated...though I'm kind of embarrassed I don't recognise half the names on the D.Gray-list, it's really annoying they don't put full names)
