Strip by: bc56

{A graph indicating the number of Nermals [Y axis] in each year [X axis] of existence of SRoMG, showing a rise to a peak of 8 in all of years 3, 4 and 5, and more inconsistent frequencies since then}

The author writes:

I came up with the pun and was surprised no one had used it yet*. I counted the number of strips Nermal appears in per completed year of SRoMG, starting on the 15th November of each year.

The most interesting finding, I think, is that the large number of Nermals in years 3 through 5 corresponds to a certain meme that was making the rounds at the time.

[*It makes a subtle appearance in strip #361. -Ed]
