Wordle is an interesting little application you can run on your computer. What you do is copy and paste a large body of text and creates a keyword cloud of that text. Words that are used more often than others appear larger. In this example I have removed all common words such as "the" as well as "and," because that would make the text cloud harder to read. Also the fun thing about Wordle is that you can customize the font and colors to your pleasing. That said I have always preferred sans serif fonts on Wordle over the alternatives...they just look better. Also I don't like Wordles with black backgrounds. Then again I use the white versions of every Whiskey media site (this one included) so maybe I'm just weird. For a good Wordle on a balck background check out the Wordle for the U.S. Constitution. Wow...I'm using the word "Wordle" as an adjective more than I feel comfortable with.

MOVING ON! So here is a half a dozen Wordles (damn it I did it again) of the more popular and detailed character pages on Anime Vice (some are better than others) for your enjoyment and speculation. Also feel free to use Wordle to turn any wiki entries into curious works of "art":

Goku

Available here.

Monkey D. Luffy

Naruto Uzumaki

Ash Ketchum

Ichigo Kurosaki

Interesting. I seen this in Biostats this semester. After this week of finals, I try it out on the character wiki pages.
Here is the link to Natsu Dragnil's wordle.
Also a picture.

Here is a link to Lisanna's page. I choose the color Kindled to highlight Death and Family, and I choose Lucida Sans because the words Family and Death are between Natsu and Lisanna.
