If you’ve been around for a while, you might know that my favourite blog stat is the search terms people use to get to my blog. Unfortunately, 99% of them are unknown but I still manage to get a fun one once in a while.
I actually do an overview of my blog’s search terms every year. Stats I’ll Show You Mine If You Show Me Yours or Stat of The Year! But I think my posts started to get way too long and unwieldy. So this year I’ve decided to Marie Kindo this post and only keep the search terms that bring me joy!
The overwhelming majority of my search terms are either searches for particular episodes of shows I am reviewing weekly. This is why episode reviews tend to have fantastic views or some variation of nudity in anime bisexual, pan-sexual or hentai searches. I rarely post anything remotely raunchy, I assume that blogs that are more dedicated to ecchi content have crazy views. Good on them! If ever I actually come up with something interesting to say on the subject, I’ll definitely jump on board.
So after getting rid of those and all the fairly normal terms most aniblogs get, I’ve managed to narrow the list down to the more fun ones. Sadly, I feel like I get a lot less random nonsense searches and that makes me a bit sad. On the other hand, I am getting way more drinking game searches. Now, this may just be because 2020 was a year where people felt the need to drink more but in any case, it’s nice to see my brand shine through!
And now, on to the search terms!
This term came up a full 5 times and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am. My blog is a lot of things and if just one of those can be an anime mullet appreciation blog, I will have made it! There are only so many times I can talk about the prevalence of mullets in anime but I will do my best to get another couple of mullet themes posts out next year!
what are the drinks in death parade
I like that this search is relevant to my theme and so precise. This is a search with a purpose. Sadly they did not find the answer to that question on my blog nut they did find a recipe for one of the drinks in Death Parade. Arguably the most famous one, the memento mori. I hope they liked it.
son goku chinese legend
I really loved writing this post but it hardly made a splash when I published it. That’s o.k., I expected this one to be a less popular post. So seeing that some people have found my blog searching for that particular post makes me pretty psyched!
аниме питомец хироки и цукаса
I’m only putting this in because interestingly there were a number of Russian searches for the anime Pet. Pretty much no one seemed to care about this anime when it was airing and I was one of the few to review it till the end. The fact that the series seemed to have generated considerable interest in the Russian market really intrigues me.
is there “romance” in that time i got reincarnated as a slime
I really like this search because it sounds a little like something I would search for. Mostly to avoid a show. I’m not sure if that’s what this particular searcher was going for. And I do mention it in my review so yay!
nosebleed roshi so cute
I don’t have any DBZ posts on my blog. I mention the show from time to time, it is rather unavoidable in the anime space but I haven’t dedicated any posts to it. I’m going to guess I used a screencap at some point.
Sounds pretty hawt. I did write a post on best anime daddies a long time ago. Actual fathers mind you but a lot of them happen to be super attractive. What’s this, attractive anime characters? Who would have guessed it?
anime girl face up
Is that a threat? I honestly can’t tell what this person was looking for. I know the expression “face-up” is used in doll customization when they repaint a doll’s face but otherwise I haven’t heard it at all. Some part of me thinks this may be yet another sex thing. But I don,t know what that thing could possibly be.
monthly girls’ nozaki-kun deconstruction
I really wish I had written this post. I’m planning on buying all the manga so maybe I can write it then!
confused anime girl
Sounds about right
gorgeous anime negligee
I think it’s the use of the .word gorgeous that really tickles my fancy here. Where they hoping to buy one? Also, I have no clue how they found my site through this. I couldn’t reproduce it so I don’t know which post they landed on. I think Akame from Akame ga Kill has really awesome jammies. Does that count?
the island of giant bug boobs
Obviously, this person was looking for ecchi pics from the Island of Giant Insects. I get it and there’s actually a ton of search for hentai or fanservice from that movie. What I like about this particular search though is that out of context it really does look like they were trying to find giant bug boobs. Are the bugs giant or are the boobs? I like to think that my blog is contributing to the evolution of a new subculture. We have furries, we have scalies and now…antennaeies?
This is so many levels of yes that I can’t even explain it!
harukana receive grandpa is the turtle
I really like this theory. I wish the show had leaned into it more. Hopefully, we’ll get another season that explores this particular phenomenon.
is it wrong to pick up girls in a fanservice
Again, I really know what this search was going for but the way they abbreviated it is awesome. Also, I would figure it is a little wrong to pick up girls in fanservice unless you have explicit consent.
which kind of metaphor is dangers can strike at any time?
See this is what I’m talking about. Random! I love these searches. I hope the searchers don’t end up too frustrated at just how unhelpful my blog is.
anime actually i am nude
More of a statement than a question. I like this one. Of the tons of nudity searches I got, this is the most baffling, which makes it the best. There are also a lot of naturist searches which I am assuming is another word for nudist. For some reason, those searches specify that they only want to see girls…
does followers over quality of products, which in return could lead to many people creating a bad reputation that could rapidly spread over many social media sites.
I mean sure. I have a post about followers on WordPress. Sadly if the search led to me I think this person did not find what they were looking for.
Just a nice blanket search!
anime with a guy with ocd and white hair
It’s killing me to know who they were actually looking for. Is it death the kid? He has some white hair. Accelerator, not that OCD just kind of a jerk. I’m still not sure.
I reviewed Demon Slayer with Crow 🙂
scottie anime dormouse
Again no clue. I once had a search term on my blog for “Scott from Mechanical Anime” so this may be yet another foreshadowing of the upcoming invasion.
maika sakuranomiya is cute even tho she isn’t supposed to look cute
I completely agree. I’m not sure she wasn’t supposed to look cute, maybe just a little mean.
anime girl big ass high socks
I think this may be missing an “and”. Although I also like the idea that someone was just looking for huge socks.
caress anine gifs
I’m just not sure and for once I think there may actually be such a thing as anine.
I looked it up, this Twitter user exists. Seems like a nice enough chap but his Twitter is private and I didn’t have the guts to start following him out of the blue.
fapswrvice is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon
I just really liked the term fapservice. I think we should start to use it for clarity. After all, fanservice doesn’t have to be sexual and this just gets to the point.
who were you before they broke your heart
OMG!!! That is so sad and poetic and how did it end up on my blog???? Don’t worry, heartbreaks suck but they are also very precious in a way. I cherish all of mine. They make you appreciate when you meet a good person and that’s quite a gift.
And that’s all I got for you this year. Told you it was very tame. This said I got A LOT of searches for Grancrest and for Jeweller Richard. Two shows that I thought had not been popular when airing let alone a year later but there you go. I also got a lot of very disturbing searches. I’m thinking a purely hentai dedicated blog would do gangbusters.
You know how some bloggers write about implied relationships in anime? Shipping in post form essentially. Is there something like that for implied hentai. Taking normal anime then writing about how it’s secretly pr0n. Cause that would do amazing and honestly sounds like a fun read.
