I thought this would be easier since I initially wanted to use the genre analysis format... I ended up making so many detours... My entire week break from school is just gonna be spent on this side project, isn't it? If you have not read the previous threads yet: Novel Updates Analysis - General Trends (Feb 2020) [Part 1] Novel Updates Analysis - Genre Analysis (Feb 2020) [Part 2] Click here for my next and final thread: Novel Updates Analysis - Synopsis Analysis (Feb 2020) [Part 4] In this thread, I will be looking solely on tags! It's actually going to be a very long read, so I'm going to just split this thread into several posts, so you can just click on the table of contents to go straight to the information you like to see! Some bits would also be statistically heavy, such as tags/readers correlation section. So, just take note! 3. Tag Analysis Overview 1. Most Common Tags 2. Least Used Tags 3. Novels with Most Number of Tags Correlation of Number of Tags to Number of Readers [STATISTICALLY HEAVY] Most Common Tag Combinations 1. 3-Tag Combinations 2. 4-Tag Combinations Measuring Common 4-Tag Combinations 1. Ratings 2. Number of Readers Finding Subsets Between 2 Tags [MATH] Conclusion 3.1. Overview 3.1.1. Most Common Tags As of 19th February 2020, NU has a total of 766 different tags. The most used tags are, of course, “Male Protagonist” and “Female Protagonist”. Kind of interesting to see that we have more projects tagged with “Modern Day” than “Transmigration”. I honestly thought it would be the other way around. And… Why do we need separate “Sword and Magic” and “Magic” tags again? 3.1.2. Least Used Tags Over here we have the least used tags. I thought that we would have more novels with the Jobless Class tag, but it seems we only have 3 of them? And if we count all the Xianxia/Xuanhuan novels where the MCs marry their spouses and then leave them for higher realms, wouldn’t that count as long-distance relationships? :thinks: 3.1.3. Novels with Most Number of Tags A novel on NU has an average of 12.65 tags, and the novel with the most tags is Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyusoukyoku (LN), with… with… 182 tags. Yep, 182 tags. You can see just how big of a difference in the number of tags it has compared to the rest. I believe a certain a degree of cleansing has to be done~ I mean, look, even the WN version has less than half of the tags it has!
