Hasn't this already been done (at least up to a year ago... coincidentally almost exactly a year)?

If you'll notice, this thread was actually created in March of last year. Regardless, he and I have both been doing this for years and years, completely independent of each other. I first started mine over six years ago, and this is merely a reboot of that after the original was lost when the old forum crashed. I typically update on a daily or semi-daily basis (as I plan to again once I'm caught up), whereas Ookii, when it's maintained regularly, usually waits until the end of each storyline.

 

Now, on to 2006!

*Kaoli is marked as a distinct character separate from her Second Life counterpart, just like Ellen and Tedd. This was an oversight on the original count that has been corrected.

**Pandora was not originally credited for her one appearance here, as it was in silhouette during a Q&A segment before her character was introduced.

***This is the second year (the first being 2004) that Elliot has not had the most appearances. As with that year, he placed fourth, and as with that year, it was Grace who took the top spot. This is the first time either Tedd or Susan have outranked him.

****This is the first time Justin has not had the fewest appearances out of the main cast.

*****This year is notable for having almost no appearances outside of the main cast, as is evidenced by the fact that no one aside from the eight of them broke out of the single digits. This is due to the bottle episode nature of the Grace's Birthday Part story arc, wherein most of the action is contained to a single evening in Tedd's house. Most of the other characters who did make appearances did so in flashbacks, fantasy sequences, or else during the brief Q&A segment and short series of guest strips at the end of the year.

2007 was a short year in terms of the archives. There were a lot of delays and missed days and gaps. It was so sparse, in fact, that tallying it up took well under an hour, though putting it all in here will likely take a little longer...

Um, shouldn't Nanase and Sarah have been respectively 5th and 6th to 300 in 2009?

No, because Sarah actually hit it in 2008 and didn't make any appearances at all in 2009.

 

2011 was a busy year - especially after the fairly sparse few years that came before it.

Right! Thanks for clearing up the confusion! :)

It's what I'm here for.

Man, doing 2012 this way was so much better than when I originally did it one day at a time, if only because it started off with what still to this day is what I consider by far the least interesting story Dan has ever done. Effing boar.

Phill was included in my original count, but that was before the extended cast started to balloon out of control. I try my best now not to include anyone whom I'm fairly certain will not make another appearance. I was iffy on Gary, for instance, and another from the upcoming list, but they're recent enough that it's still possible they might appear again, especially with Dan's penchant for re-using extras (the people at Rhea's party have appeared several times, including in the video store and at the movie theater, but I have never included them). Thus, despite Phill having a name, I was confident he would not be showing up again, and so he was cut.

 

Moving on. 2013 was a big year for a lot of characters - three in particular, as you'll see. It also saw the debut of one of my favorite new characters in years. Try and guess who it is.

I explained that higher up when they first appeared, but it doesn't surprise me that it got lost in the swarm. To clarify: All 4 of Elliot's alter-egos receive their own counts, and are listed as semi-characters (italics in the full count list), like Fox, and Susan's personality aspects. They also count as an appearance of Elliot himself.

Just one, obviously. That is to say, if Heidi and Cheerleadra were to appear in the same comic, they would each get one, and it would count as one appearance for Elliot.

 

2014...

Good lord, that card tournament dragged on forever. I'd forgotten just how arduous it was.

Damn. Another year like 2015 and I'll be officially expanding what I consider to be the "main cast".

*Please note that my opinions have no bearing on what is actually the main cast - only on how this list is presented.

*Ashley's count is the highest in any single year for a character outside the main cast. In fact, she has more appearances in this year alone than any other non-main character has in total, save two: Mr Verres, and Mr. Raven (whose all-time total beats her 2015 total by one).

**The above is actually incorrect, as it failed to take Diane's appearances from 2015 into account. Still, though...

Damn. Another year like 2015 and I'll be officially expanding what I consider to be the "main cast".

 

Splendid work, Illjwamh. It is good to have you back. :)

I'm having fun. :)

 

An important note before I post the 2016 count: this year will include the count from the NP-original story "Question Mark", featuring the story of how Sarah got her magic mark. It originally ran in 2015, but will be part of this year's count for the following reasons:

1. It was placed into the main story archives in 2016, and appears on the main page amidst the 2016 comics.

2. NP storylines aren't normally counted anyway, even if they're canon; the only reason this is being counted at all is because of reason 1.

3. I've already finished 2015, and I don't want to have to go back and change anything.

The appearances will be counted by the main story comic format. That is, each comic on the main page is actually made of several NP comics put together, but will count as one comic for the purposes of the list, because, again, main comics are what are counted, not NP.

All that being said, let's get on with it. We're in uncharted territory now, folks. Except for a few near the beginning, I've never done 2016 before.

*The observant among you no doubt noticed an extra bold name this time around. Diane has appeared every year since her introduction (except in 2009, when Tedd and Sarah didn't appear either), and for the last several years has consistently placed high on the list and played a significant role in various storylines. Based on the direction the comic is headed, that is not likely to change. Also to be considered is that for two years in a row now, supposed main characters (Susan and Justin, respectively), have only appeared twice. Thus, I will now be counting Diane as among the main cast, and will represent her on the list accordingly.

**I am also strongly considering doing the same for Ashley, but as she hasn't been around nearly as long, I'm going to give it another year or so for her to truly establish herself (and to make sure she doesn't disappear - having to demote her would be humiliating for everyone).

That probably depends upon what Dan does with them, but it could take several years to determine which pattern will emerge.

I can imagine several possibilities.  If Susan continues to use Li'l Nase as her go-to fairy for the important dramatic or comedic moments, Li'l Nase continues.

If one particular fairy becomes her familiar, that fairy is the new semi-character.

And if she rotates the lot, brings them up randomly, or uses them in a swarm most of the time, then Li'l Nase as a separate semi-character gets retired and "Susan's Fairies" is the new statistic.

Of course, that is just one set of options.
