Atarashii Prelude


Atarashii Prelude x365: A Year Of LOLWUTs, You Lost Mes And Plain BS


Before I even realized it, a year has passed since this site was founded by my senior and co-founder, gaiden, which also marks the anniversary of my very first foray into blogging of any kind. Since I've been meaning to do this but never found the opportunity nor necessity for it before this, here's a statistical overview of Atarashii Prelude for the past 365 days.

What I'm Going To Sound Like For The Rest Of This Post. 


Most Viewed Post

While it may be unfamiliar to some, Singaporean anime fans will remember a dark period in time around a year ago during the Odex Holocaust Saga, in which the aforementioned anime licensing company was cracking down on downloaders and prosecuting hem. A shitstorm of biblical proportions manifested itself after one of its directors, Stephen Sing, gloated over his so called triumph over these people, which was subsequently exposed on a local tech forum. I took the liberty in summarizing what was posted and included a wanted poster of the said director(which made the imagehost I was using crash due to bandwidth overload) and just like that, I now have over 24,000++ views for that single post to date. The LOLWUT post came at a respectable second place, with the actual figure messed up after I accidentally corrupted the database, with trackbacks linking to another post instead, though it chalked up a total of 18,000++ views based on the figures from the old site alone.

Most Commented Post

Unsurprisingly, the most viewed post also gained the most number of comments, be it from enraged fans, amused sympathizers or just apathetic bypassers . You guys also seem to like the idea of Genderbended Haruhi almost as much. The more recent post on female fans came real close to edging the latter.

This was me in my past life.

Top 3 Most Searched Keywords For

Hur hur. I referred to myself the most, by redirecting anyone who wanted to view the Seitenkan post.

Other Stats

Total Posts: 306(prior to this post)

Total Comments: 2197

Setsuna is my biggest fan with 99 comments so far. The Queen of Yukan trails behind with 79. Faye loves me just as much, expressing it through her 75 comments .Then there's this Daniel guy, whose tally I didn't keep track, but let's just say there's a lot of them. A lot for a spam bot that is.

If I had started blogging much earlier, like 400 years earlier, this would have been the outcome:




In the end, none of this would have been made possible without everybody's support, taking into consideration the droves of episodic summary blogs out there, though I guess there's a market for one with crude 4chan styled writings, and for that, I thank you, since I'll never be able to produce thought provoking articles or satirical commentary on anime, with my limited vocabulary and shallow knowledge.

Lastly but hardly the least:







Yeah, you can tell I've been waiting a long time to use these images, though I realize I probably lost about 2/3 of viewers with them. For those still sticking around, here's to another year of random fandom mumbo jumbo.
