Crossposting as an excuse for research  
Alright. The semester is almost over, and like a fool I've procrastinated writing my research term paper until... now. What the heck can I research that I can write a quick paper about?

Well, duh. Anime. I decided that if I write a paper about anime, then I can rewatch Fullmetal Alchemist and call that research. Sweet.

Unfortunately, my brilliant topic had to be narrowed down to anime fan culture in North America. This means that I need to conduct actual research.



Can you all answer these questions for me?

a) Identify whether you're male or female

b) Explain (briefly) why you like anime and manga

c) If you're a girl, explain why you (may or may not) like shounen series

d) If you're a guy, explain why you (may or may not) like shoujo series, if your masculinity isn't greviously offended by admitting it


This is an informal survey and will never see a printer's press-- my sole object in conducting this survey is to pass my writing class. As such, although I may quote your responses in order to make a point in my paper, it will be anonymous and uncredited and only one other person in the world will ever see it. Thank heavens I don't actually want to publish this, or my university would expel my little hiney for being so unacademic.

A) I'm female.

B) To me, anime/manga are forms of entertainment. I find that a lot of anime/manga are more enjoyable than other reality shows and such. Anime/manga also cover a large variety of topics which could range from comedy to death.

C) Shounen series are some of my favorites. I enjoy a good action or adventure story. Those appeal more to me than shoujo series most of the time since I tend to shy away from the romantic or everyday-type stories.
