This survey was passed out at the beginning of my presentations (on romance manga or paranormal Japan) at anime conventions. If you wanted to be entered into the raffle where I was giving away free books and comics, then you had to fill one out. Since the conditions were not ideal, the survey results should not be taken too seriously, but they are fun and interesting. Most respondents were 20-30 years old from a mixed group of females and males.
