Macross on Google Trends

Macross on Google Trends

Was checking on Google trends the volume of searches conducted that are related to Macross. Being the 30th Anniversary of the anime, Macross, I'd expect some web activity already from the fans. So far just a blip during the tail end of 2011.

With an anime such as Macross Frontier supporting the 25th Anniversary of Macross, you can really see how the interest picked up during the latter part of 2007 to 2008. I'm assuming if the producers decide to release a 30th Anniversary anime this would also follow the same trend.

The difference I'm seeing between the 25th Anniversary and the 30th Anniversary, in terms of the media. Is that this time there are social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, that can be harnessed to promote more effectively the milestone. Especially since the penetration and acceptance of the said sites has reached the main stream. Wherein almost everybody has a twitter and a facebook account.
