Thank You! – Site Growth Over 10 Months

The site has seen incredible growth in the past 10 months. I never expected to get this many visitors. I expected it to be more like when I had a crappy anime site in the Geocities days where I’d be happy to break 50 views (40 of which were my own). A lot of this can be attributed to the power of Google, but this is really a testament to a dedicated PAD community that wants more supplemental content. I’d like to thank everyone for coming to the site; I probably would’ve quit long ago if not for all the interaction and kind words I get from visitors. That being said, I’m just going to continue to blog about whatever the hell I want and hopefully that proves entertaining and/or informative enough for you to come back.

  1. It’s a shame it requires a wordpress account to be able to like in the first place. I’ve greatly appreciated your blog and I’m glad you stuck with it, you’re reviews and analysis are informative and helpful. It lets me read about the trends on JP and I get a lot of up coming news from your posts that I wouldn’t otherwise. Hopefully it has been a positive and rewarding experience for you!

    • Yeah, I don’t like the WordPress like system just for that. You should be able to login with a social media account of your choice and be able like through that.

      That being said, likes don’t really mean that much, on this platform especially. Comments mean a lot more to me, so I’d rather have that than a like.

  4. Congrats Setsu, I would like all of your posts but since I am signed in through FB the site wont let me.

    Regardless, you are doing an amazing job.

  5. Congratulations! The content on your blog is fantastic and I’m happy to see it doing well. Hopefully this keeps you motivated to keep posting as often as you do — I imagine it’s a lot of work, especially stuff like reviews which are time-sensitive.

    Here’s to another 10 more months!

  6. You really are the best, man. Even when the posts are about stuff I’ll never deal with, they’re interesting. The fact that you’re a great resource for news and conjecture, and that you take the time to answer questions and give advice is amazing. You’re a throwback to an earlier Internet era, when people shared opinions and gave advice without being subjected to a constant stream of abuse.

  8. I have to say, I just found out about your blog today and it has been a joy to read. Maybe it’s the fact I just love reading game related information but your blog has definitely been a pleasure to have stumbled upon. Keep up with the random posts because I love reading about them!

  9. Wow, look at that curve!

    I stumbled here around May looking for farming team options, here’s my impression. PAD discussion was starved, largely limited to extreme edge cases of IAP or non-IAP, and JP discussion was even more scarce. Over the last year more attention has been paid to JP updates out of concern over dramatic shifts and inflating multipliers, which paved the way for more meaningful discussion over game balance and farming setups.

    In this way I think you filled that demand nicely, a neutral overview of what works and why, without discriminating based on IAP vs. non-IAP or JP vs. NA. And it was fun to track your progress along the way! From 5 combo to 5 color and all sorts of new playstyles.

    Anyway I’m glad your diligence has paid off and wish you the best drop rates. I’ll keep reading along from salty rants to idle musings, at least until Gungho runs this train into the ground. Then we can all find a less expensive hobby.

  10. This blog is the only real English repository of ultra-end game information, strategies and discussion. Tons of great information and a huge amount of data and analysis compared to any other source

  11. I first found your blog because of your JP/NA tracker, then I found your Beelzebub write up, and realized I was playing the game all wrong :-p. This was about a month before Awoken Bastet hit NA.

    I decided I needed to really learn things, so I started checking in here daily, watching videos, looking for write-ups (surprisingly hard to find good ones). I’ve beaten every challenge 10 since I got bestcat and friends done.

    So, Thanks for this blog, revolutionized my PAD-ing!
