It's the tenth of the month, so you know what that means. That's right! It's time for another in-depth analysis of clop!
My previous Rule 34 blog posts are available at the following links.
Without further ado, here's the latest Rule 34 statistics!
As of December 10, 2013, here's the state of Rule 34, according to Rule34.paheal.net:
Pokemon still holds the lead with 69,219 images. 1,572 new explicit images were added during November, giving Pokemon a 2.3% increase in porn from last month.
Touhou is in second place with 43,712 images. 483 new explicit images were added during November, giving Touhou a 1.1% increase in porn from last month.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is in third place with 42,244 images. 1,392 new explicit images were added during November, giving My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic a 3.4% increase in porn from last month.
DC Comics is in fourth place with 23,022 images. 181 new explicit images were added during November, giving DC Comics a 0.7% increase in porn from last month.
Street Fighter is in fifth place with 17,334 images. 196 new explicit images were added during November, giving Street Fighter a 1.1% increase in porn from last month.
Naruto is in sixth place with 16,900 images. 193 new explicit images were added during November, giving Naruto a 1.1% increase in porn from last month.
Marvel Comics is in seventh place with 16,510 images. 171 new explicit images were added during November, giving Marvel Comics a 1% increase in porn from last month.
Sonic Team is in eighth place with 14,783 images. 312 new explicit images were added during November, giving Sonic Team a 2.1% increase in porn from last month.
Digimon is in ninth place with 11,553 images. 154 new explicit images were added during November, giving Digimon a 1.3% increase in porn from last month.
Idolm@ster is in tenth place with 10,417 images. 22 new explicit images were added during November, giving Idolm@ster a 0.2% increase in porn from last month.
The fourth season of Friendship is Magic started since the last update, so I anticipated MLP Rule 34 to receive a substantial increase in content.
The first several episodes of season four certainly gave porn producers plenty of new material to exploit. While MLP's porn numbers improved over last month, they still couldn't compete with the output of Pokemon, which is currently riding a wave of new explicit imagery thanks to the release of Pokemon X and Y.
Pokemon deserves a special shout out, since it's the first series to ever generate more than 69,000 explicit images.
While Pokemon may have gained even more of a lead, the gap between second and third place continues to shrink. Touhou currently only has 1,468 more explicit images than My Little Pony. It won't be long before MLP finds itself in second place.
Now that we've gone over the monthly update for the top ten porn producers, it's time to analyze the latest data regarding Rule 34 images for the mane six.
As of December 10, 2013, here's the state of Rule 34 for the mane six, according to Rule34.paheal.net:
Twilight Sparkle has 6,356 images. 288 explicit images were added during November, giving her a 4.7% increase from last month.
Rainbow Dash has 5,456 images. 152 explicit images were added during November, giving her a 2.8% increase from last month.
Fluttershy has 4,713 images. 141 explicit images were added during November, giving her a 3% increase from last month.
Pinkie Pie has 4,686 images. 133 explicit images were added during November, giving her a 2.9% increase from last month.
Applejack has 4,043 images. 123 explicit images were added during November, giving her a 3.1% increase from last month.
Rarity has 4,024 images. 164 explicit images were added during November, giving her a 4.2% increase from last month.
Congratulations to Applejack and Rarity, who both reached 4,000 images!
Rarity also really narrowed the gap this month! She's still in last place, but only by 19 explicit images.
Special thanks to Infinion, who made these amazing graphs of the data I collected. [I will soon update the charts to reflect the current data.]
To start off with, here's the master chart of the top ten Rule 34 producers.
This chart represents more than three years' worth of Rule 34 data. In order to more closely examine the numbers, Infinion has broken the data into more manageable semi-annual charts.
Which brings us to Dec. 2013.
To get an idea of how far My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has come since its premiere, here's a chart highlighting the monthly numerical and percentage increase of MLP porn.
Now let's take a look at the Rule 34 stats for the mane six. Here's their master chart.
In order to discover what these numbers mean, we'll need to delve deeper. In order to do that, we'll break down the data into semi-annual chunks.
Which brings us to Dec. 2013.
Three years ago Twilight Sparkle only had 14 explicit images. Today, she has more porn drawn of her than any other individual character... with one exception.
As of December 10th, 2013, Street Fighter's Chun-Li has 6,803 explicit images, while Twilight Sparkle has 6,356 explicit images. Nearly 40% of all Street Fighter porn is of Chun-Li. In contrast, Twilight Sparkle makes up just 15% of My Little Pony porn.
When My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic premiered on 10-10-10, Chun-Li had 3,005 explicit images on Rule34.paheal.net. In the years that followed, Chun-Li would see her title as queen of porn challenged by an unasuming, adorkable purple pony named Twilight Sparkle. The following chart represents more than three years worth of porn data for Chun-Li and Twilight Sparkle.
What is it about this sexy Street Fighter which has prompted such peerless porn production? For more than two decades, Chun-Li has captured the hearts and hard-ons of fans throughout the world.
It's time to explore Chun-Li's history and find out why this feisty firecracker has garnered her the title "First Lady of Gaming."
Chun-Li's name translates into "Beautiful Spring." Officially, Chun-Li has no last name. She stands 5'7'' tall. Her measurements are B88-W58-H90.
Chun-Li is notable for being one of the first female video game characters. Street Fighter II was released in 1991. When Samus Aran was revealed to be a woman in the original Metroid game, it took everyone by surprise. While female characters like Samus Aran and Lara Croft exude masculine traits and mannerisms, there was no mistaking the gender of Chun-Li. She was a character who could embrace her femininity while still being considered equally as tough as the men of Street Fighter.
For 22 years and counting, her curvacious hips have been the stuff that wet dreams are made of. And of course, who could forget the appearance of Chun-Li's nipples from the shower scene in the Street Fighter II animated movie?
Chun-Li wears a traditional Chinese dress called a qipao, which has been altered in order to increase her range of movement. Her hairstyle is known as "Ox Horns," which is common amongst Chinese girls.
Chun-Li comes complete with a tragic backstory. She worked as an INTERPOL agent on the search for her missing father. It's later revealed that he was killed by M. Bison and Chun-Li swears to avenge her father's death.
There's been lots of questionable Street Fighter merchandise over the years. At one point Chun-Li was even made an honorary G.I. Joe.
Good grief! Just look at Chun-Li's man face! When Jackie Chan is a more feminine-looking Chun-Li, you know you've officially failed as a toy maker.
Believe it or not, Jackie Chan actually did dress as Chun-Li in the 1992 film City Hunter.
Chun-Li currently holds the lead for most porn of any individual character by 447 explicit images, but Twilight Sparkle is catching up fast. Once she surpasses Chun-Li, Twilight Sparkle will have more Rule 34 than any other individual character, which will make her the undisputed Sovereign of Smut. The Dowager of Dirty Drawings. The Empress of Explicit Imagery. The Ruler of Rule 34. The Princess of Porn.
The full import of this message is a little staggering. This is history in the making. Out of all the characters in popular culture, none other has risen through the ranks of Rule 34 faster than Twilight Sparkle. Even Pokemon, which boasts more Rule 34 than any other series, has no individual character with as much porn as any member of the mane six.
Thanks for reading and feel free to share any thoughts or opinions in the comments section. I'll be back next month with another Rule34 update.
