Hello! I'm a master degree student in Tilburg University, Netherlands. My master thesis is about the online otaku behaviors. I conducted an interview for this issue. It would be a great help if you are willing to fill in the interview!

Here is the interview site:

Thank you again for filling the interview!
P.S. because it's an opened ended interview, filling by computer will be easier.
