Well… at least according to this blog, it isn’t ^^;. Some of you might remember that not too long ago, there was a period when this blog pretty much became “Kamen Rider Inochi” and that was probably confusing some of you haha. I did that very intentionally just to gauge reaction, interest, feedback and discover if others have similar feelings toward KR; according to the KR poll (500 voted), opinions were split right at 50/50 so it’s “damn if I do and damn if I don’t” xD.At the same time, I was also analyzing the stats to see how the KR stuff flows with the rest of the blog’s contents (mainly Gundams) and I must say… it was very interesting (to me at least). Let’s take a look at what I’m talking about…
The SHF Kabuto was my first KR review of any sort and thus, it is the “oldest” of the review and it has garnered 777 hits to date. Peak view at around 210
And this is the total traffic count for the “Kamen Rider” general page to date. Busiest day was at 67 visits. Both this and Kabuto’s page were added a little over a month ago. Now…
Here’s the total traffic count for the MG Astray Red Frame’s review page to date XD. 923 views just on its first day and it has already surpassed both the KR general and Kabuto page’s combined total in less than two weeks XD!!!
So looking at the big picture, Kamen Rider really isn’t as popular as I thought it would be when YOU GUYS (re)introduced it to me ^^;. Despite being a 50/50 on the poll, most of you are obviously here for the Gundam (I guess the blog’s name have something to do with that…).Semi-unrelated subject but 9/03/10 took the title of “busiest day EVAR” on this blog… which it took from the day MG Shining Gundam’s review was out… which it took from the day of MG RF’s review… which it took from the day of this year’s blog’s anniversary ^^;. Haha I apologize if it sounds like I’m bragging but I see this as more of a milestone than reaching an arbitrary “x number of hits” ^^;.
Even if Gundam beats Kamen Rider in popularity here, this whole point is made moot simply for the fact that I don’t blog about what’s popular; I blog about what I am personally passionate about :). This doesn’t mean I’ll ignore your opinions though, since I do take your words into serious consideration (be it review requests, photos, random stuff, etc) and fulfill it if it is within my reach. I’m just saying regardless of stats or popularity, I’ll continue to make posts/reviews/whatnot about what I like… be it Gundam, Kamen Rider, Gaogaigar, cars, food, etc… that is what we call “Inochi” ^^.
“It’s NOT over yet, Gundam! Just you wait! We might only have 5 Riders now but soon, THE REST OF OUR COMRADES will join in! Then ALL YOUR GUNPLA ARE BELON–….hmm?”
“UGHHH!!!… oretachi… sanjou…”
“… need a hand there, buddy?” o_o;
