So, I was browsing around online and I came across some BJD discussions and I see people discussing/mentioning companies that people tend to buy their first doll. Then I remembered a reoccurring question I have: "What is the most common company that people get their first doll from?". So, out of curiosity, I went onto this forum here on DOA and decided to take time and compile all of the data. This data is compiled of responses from over 800 doll owners telling what their first BJD was. Just so you know: *Entries were not included if -The doll was off-topic (i.e Pullips) -It was a duplicate/re-submission by the same user. -It was a hybrid. (I love hybrids but it would make things more complicated.) -the post was for some reason complicated to understand. *If there was an artist or sculpting team that worked under a company, they were most likely grouped with them. *In the charts below, all the companies included in the data may not show up on the chart but they are factored in. The Results (As of 12/29/17) EDIT: The charts do not list all the companies that were used in that data. You can go to the original spread sheet if you're curious. The Original Spreadsheet Despite all the hours of work I have put into this, it's still fallible. If you have any tips or suggestions on how to better the data, please let me know.
