Above is an end of the year review of what happened in the Gorillaz fandom in 2016 plus some individual character stats and picture tallies. If 2015 was the year of hype, 2016 was the year where the hype died, came back to life, took a few wrong turns and then finally hit its stride by the end of the year. Whether we had official news or not, the fandom STILL made things happen. With 2016 over, it’s looking like we’re finally getting to the album release. Thanks for keeping things interesting during what could have been another year of waiting ❤️.
One note about the picture counts: I didn’t count the times there were duplicates of the same picture, but like, with a different filter or something (example: that triple Noodle post in different color gradients that counted as one.)
Other stories and events (some of which are ongoing): Guessing the meaning of instagram activity i.e. who is Mavis?, trying to figure out the release date before an actual release date (looking to the number 23 for answers), debate over Noodle (in general), and finally, memes. Feel free to add on anything I may have missed!
