I am no longer collecting responses to the questionnaire, but if you're interested in the questions, here they are. I have yet to tally all 2000+ responses, but you can see an early analysis here. PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME FILLING IT OUT, BECAUSE THE "Submit Questionnaire" BUTTON HAS BEEN DISABLED!
Got a minute? I'd be profoundly grateful if you could help me with my research by filling out the following questionnaire about comics. I've surveyed more than a thousand Japanese readers about their manga-reading practices, but I still know very little about non-Japanese readers of sequential art. Although I know I can't get scientifically significant results with an online questionnaire like this, I figure every little bit helps. Because gender and sexual identity are an important aspect of my research, this survey is rated PG-13. If you are younger than 13 years old, get permission from a parent to fill this out. Also, please note that when I use the word "comics" in this survey, I use it to include manga, B.D., manwha, graphic novels–in short, any kind of sequential art except newspaper comic strips and editorial cartoons. Preliminary results of the survey can be seen here.
NOTE 1: Shôjo manga are manga that are first serialized in a manga magazine geared at girls or women. Manga such as Love Hina, Video Girl Ai, Oh, My Goddess, and Maison Ikkoku are not shôjo manga. Rule of thumb: if major female characters are portrayed with large breasts, then it's probably not shôjo manga. Female characters are not usually portrayed in a sexually titillating way in shôjo manga. If you're still confused, please read this.
NOTE 2: If you get an error message when trying to submit your response, please wait a few minutes and try again. It seems the software sometimes returns errors when two or more persons try to submit simultaneously.
NOTE 3: Once you have successfully submitted a response, please do not fill out and submit the questionnaire again! Multiple responses from a single person will skew the results.
