Searching "Initial D" in Google Trends reveals some interesting data...

Hawaii dominates the search volume index. Apparently, Hawaiians are more interested in Initial D than any other state in the U.S.

Here is a more complete interest map for the whole world:

As you can see, Malaysians are the biggest fans of Initial D in the world. Well, according to Google Trends, at least.

WoW, that's really interesting!!!
But i think why Malaysians are the biggest fans of Initial D, is because of that Japanese type '頭文字D' on google, not 'Initial D'!

Why i don't see Japanese characters?

Good point - I don't know why I hadn't considered that! Well, I just searched for "頭文字D" and this is still surprising:

It seems even when searching for Initial D as "頭文字D", Japan is still not the most interested country - that honor goes to Taiwan!

I believe the Regional Interest data is not an absolute number, rather it is based on percentage of that specific country. For example, Taiwan has about 30 million people, and about 30,000 of them searched the term "Initial D," that's 0.1%. Then Japan has 125 million people, and let say about 62,000 of them searched the term "Initial D," that's roughly 0.05%. So even though the absolute number of searches from Japan is twice as many as Taiwan, it is not so based on percentage. At least that's how I think it works.

I think aliens messed around with the statistics. derp.gif

Either way, these are really interesting! California is pretty close behind Hawaii. Although I'm surprised that there aren't more states that are colored in a darker blue. You'd think that Nevada would be... oh wait. It is a little more blue than the states around it. Nevermind.

I wonder what caused the peak to increase in early 2011. Was this because of AS6?
