Random Curiosity

Fullmetal Alchemist: Milos no Seinaru Hoshi – Movie Trailer »« Quick Update on Broadcast Schedules

Thanks For Reading! 70 Million Visits and Counting!

Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai   Meruru Figurine

In just seven months, Random Curiosity has been graced by another 10 million visits, so I’d like to once again thank all our readers for continuing to make this site one of your regular stops on the Internet. It simply wouldn’t be what it is today without its readership, which motivates me to continue on to the best of my ability. The five-year history that was about to come to a close has officially become six, coinciding with the one-year anniversary of things under my tenure. Both Kiiragi and Prooof are approaching their first full year as writers as well, so I’d like to thank them for all they’ve contributed. The same goes for Takaii, who’s taken on a fair number of shows in the past six months and handled them very well.

This isn’t the same Random Curiosity that Omni left behind, but I hope the changes made in the past year are seen as positive ones. This includes the ever-so-popular season previews that I’ve tried to improve by making them more comprehensive than in years past. A goal of mine has always been to promote a more open-minded view on anime, so hopefully the fairly objective coverage on a diverse range of shows has achieved that to a certain degree too. For me, one of the most satisfying aspects about blogging anime is helping people discover new shows that they would have never considered and sharing in the discussion of them. After all, it’s about being a fan first and foremost, and our mutual interest in anime.

Since August, the site has seen 600 new posts, 32,000 new comments, 18 million new page views, and of course 10 million new visits. We’re quickly approaching the 5,000 post mark and have already past the 205,000 comment mark. Again, thank you all for helping Random Curiosity grow, not only as an anime blog but as a bit of a community as well. This one’s for you guys!

    I bow down before greatness. 10 million in 7 months is a big number…

    Many thanks to Omni and Divine! may Random Curiosity have twice more year than its anniversary.. that means if you’re on the 6th year anniversary, I wish you 12 more years to come. and when you made it to you’re 7th, I wish you 14 more years to come.. and so on! (simply put it, I don’t want you to close down… ever!)

    I’m a big fan of this site since going in hibernation way back 2006.

  • March 24, 2011 at 1:35 pmROFLWAFFLELAWL

    Ahh the g’ol days of Random cur. Oh how long its been.

    Tough times with Omni’s departure and happy times with the re-imagining of RC.

    A lot has happened. But I’m glad it was with you guys. Hoping to see more in the coming seasons!

    Keep it up guys!

    No surprise there, this is after all the greatest new anime review/preview site ever created!

  • March 24, 2011 at 2:50 pm1Lau

    Yay for us and hurray for RC and the team! May many more visits come.

    Congrats on this remarkable milestone! Let’s hope for 70 million more!

    No, thank you guys for a great website dedicated to animes.
    Hope we can stay on this course and get another 10 million in 7 months.

    Congrats and thanks for all your hard work Divine, Kiiragi, Prooof, and Takaii^^ Keep up the good work!(>^-^)>

    Congrats all! Keep up the top notch work <3

  • March 24, 2011 at 4:35 pmstargeizer

    Wow… 6 years… seems a very short time in retrospective (lurking here since 2006, but not very vocal anyways). Congrats to Divine and Co., and a special thanks to Omni, wherever and whatever he’s doing nowadays.

  • March 24, 2011 at 6:09 pmVor

    RandomC is by far the best anime blog out there. Thanks for all your hard work guys!

  • March 24, 2011 at 6:10 pmMrBrownSound

    No, Randomc, thank you for keeping the site spam free and for all the great posts all these years. Congratulations to the current writers for making the long haul. Say hello to Omni for us.
    Lol is it ok that I see Omni as some mystical godlike being that left the midst of this website to conquer other immense problems unknown to us. Yup he’s up there in my top list with Danny Choo, Joshua Jackson, and Ajay Bhatt.

    Lol Anyway I hope to have my future children read this very website. Keep the posts coming Randomc.

    Congratulations on a fruitful year for the new RC, folks.

    I very much liked visiting Omni’s RC often to check up on the latest shows being talked about, but I absolutely LOVED the new RC headed by you guys, Divine. No disrespect to Omni, whatsoever, for without him, RC would not have been possible, after all. And credit must also be given to Omni for finding a worthy successor to hand the baton of RC over to. So it is his legacy as much as it is you guys’.

    Keep up the good work.

  • March 24, 2011 at 7:18 pmAi Ling

    I have to say, I’ve been following Random C since 2007. And since then it’s been the best. You guys never fail to let me down!

  • March 24, 2011 at 7:27 pmMc-Taz

    Of course! Anyone who visits Random Curiosity knows it’s one of the absolute best anime blogs!
    Keep up the good work guys.

  • March 24, 2011 at 8:45 pmShinjiro

    Good job to Divine and all the writers here! Keep it up! ^^

  • March 24, 2011 at 10:02 pmShalaKairos

    No, thank YOU for providing us with a place that makes you forget about the troubles of life. I’ve always been a huge fan of the site for many reasons and try to share those reasons whenever I have the opportunity. Sometimes I meet lovers of anime on Xbox Live. I always direct them here.

    Congratulations and thanks for your hard work. ^^d

  • March 25, 2011 at 4:51 amanishuma

  • March 25, 2011 at 11:20 amdxb_blackwolf

    This is my third season following RandomC and I’m really glad I discovered it. Thank you for making anime even more enjoyable and for personally making me a better reader :D (I really did need some motivation in that area ^^’).

  • March 25, 2011 at 4:15 pmJusuchin

    A round of lager for everyone (of age). Y’all done a good job since Omni, and I’m sure he checks up on the site here and there. On to 4 more years of continued growth and development!

  • March 25, 2011 at 6:03 pminnerchihiro

    I love this site. Thank you guys for all the work you put into it.
    By the way, do you plan to change the banner soon Divine? Just curious :)

  • March 25, 2011 at 6:08 pmvoidgnesis

    omni would be so freaking proud right now, im sure he is whatever epic stuff hes doing now. Kiiragi, Proof, Takaii, and especially Divine for all your hard work, Doumo Arigatou Gozaimasu

  • March 25, 2011 at 8:22 pmsealouse

    Hey congrats on everything. I also noticed you added a recent comments section. Thanks. Is there any chance of increasing the number of entries in the RSS feed? It only goes up to 12 for me and I’m thinking at least 20 would be ideal.

    • March 26, 2011 at 5:41 amDivine

      Done. The RSS feed will now sync the latest 20 entries.

  • March 25, 2011 at 11:56 pmdeafvader

    RC ftw!

  • March 26, 2011 at 4:19 amNaYa

    One of the best anime blog sites there is, if not THE best. ;)
    Great job and thank you for all your hard work.

  • March 26, 2011 at 5:00 pmRockmanshii

    Congratulations all of you.

  • March 27, 2011 at 5:47 amJustine

    Congrats! I’ve seen several other anime review blogs, and none of them is as worth attention as yours. It’s really an amazing website :D

  • March 27, 2011 at 6:11 pmCris

  • March 28, 2011 at 4:11 amIchigomaru
