Who We Are
Welcome to the International Anime Research Project.
Are you Real?
Yes, we are real scientists. And yes, it is part of our jobs to go to conventions and talk to lots of fans. We are grateful to have received the support of A-Kon staff for this project for the past three years. Also, the support of AnimeFest for allowing us to attend this year. A goal of the project is to disseminate findings from the anime community to the anime community. Findings from the project will be shared for free in the The Phoenix Papers, at future conferences, and on this website.
What is on this Website?Preliminary results from past surveys are posted on the past results page. These are results that we put together soon after the data is collected. We then work to put together longer (more in depth) papers about the collected responses for The Phoenix Papers (you can download these from the publications page). You can sign up for email notifications below if you would like to be emailed when papers/results are posted (or follow on Facebook or Twitter). We hope this site will continue to grow into a storehouse for empirical data for anime/manga research for interested fans and researchers alike.
