Hi!

I'm writing a dissertation chapter on anime and manga fans-- please consider helping by taking a survey! (Oh, and I have permission from Crunchyroll to post this, so please don't lock the post )

I’m a long-time fan of anime and manga, and a Ph.D. student at Miami University. For my dissertation I am writing a study on Japanese communication, with a special focus on Japanese pop culture. I plan to include a chapter on how fans outside of Japan, particularly in North America, interpret and respond to Japanese communication strategies as they are found in anime and manga.

I’m writing to ask you to participate in a confidential online survey about how they watch, read, and respond to anime and manga. The survey should take about 15 to 20 minutes. Since the survey does not ask for your name or any contact information, there is no way to go back later to change answers, so please give yourself enough time to complete the questions in one sitting. The survey will stay open until December 31, 2011.

You might see an invitation to take this survey on multiple sites you visit—please only take it once!

The survey is open to all participants aged 18 and over.

Please note that I am conducting this survey as an individual fan and student—while I have the site administrators’ permission to recruit on this forum, it is otherwise in no way connected to Crunchyroll. There are no special benefits or penalties for participating in the study or not—though I hope you may find the questions themselves interesting and I plan to share some of my findings with this forum after the study is complete.

If you are interested in participating in the survey, please visit the survey site at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/animefans.
The survey is hosted by SurveyMonkey, so you will be directed away from Crunchyroll’s website. If you have additional questions about the survey or study, feel free to contact me directly at [email protected]. Also, please note that the Miami University Institutional Review Board has approved this study, number 11-241.

I hope you participate in this survey—and feel free to share this invitation with other anime and manga fans you think might be interested in taking part!

Thanks,
Dom Ashby
