I've somewhat disappeared from LJ due to various factors, mostly involving my dissertation and my parents' visit. So I'm only sticking my head above the water, so to speak, in order to ask those of you who read manga, or manga scanlations, if you would be so kind as to take my survey (so that I can write an awesome dissertation and get a good grade and graduate and get my awesome dream job and move to London and I don't know, open a kitten orphanage in my spare time).

Commercially Translated Manga and Manga Scanlation Reader Behavior Survey

If you'd also ask your friends to take it, that would also be very appreciated. The more results I get, the better. Please be entirely candid and truthful in filling it out, too, I'm not trying to skew my results in any direction. ;-)

*clings* I surveyed! Have you thought about posting it on the MangaFox forums?

Thank you for responding! I have posted it to MangaFox, and I'll probably put it up on a couple of other forums as well, try to scrape up as many respondents as I can. If you happen to have free time (how likely is that, at this stage? Not at all, I'm thinking . . .), and you felt like posting the link somewhere, by all means feel free. ;-)

Done! Though I'm not sure I'm supposed to be in your sample, since you seem to be targeting people living in English-speaking countries, if I judge from your "other English-speaking countries" option and the fact that you separate the UK from Europe (!)

Anyway, I look forward to the results. You may be interested in expanding the survey to other languages (... like French), since there are pretty heavy manga markets in here.

Good luck with your study!

Thank you so so much! I really appreciate it, you have no idea.

I am specifically targeting manga as translated into English, since there has to be some parameters to my paper, and my foreign language skills are pretty pathetic. But having respondents from non-English speaking countries does help to illustrate an important point for my paper-- that is, the international nature of the fan community-- so I'm very glad that you answered it. ^_^
