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 to support this project two years running. 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?Coinciding with the start of A-Kon 25 (June 6th-8th, 2014, Dallas, TX) we launched the 2014 Anime Survey. A few months of data coding/cleaning/analyzing later we have posted the initial results on the past results page. We have just closed the 2015 survey and are working to clean/organize/analyze the results. We are continuing to work on the 2014 and 2015 data to put together longer (more in depth) papers about the collected responses for The Phoenix Papers (links will be posted on the publications page). You can sign up for email notifications below if you would like to be emailed when papers/results are posted. We hope this site will continue to grow into a storehouse for empirical data for anime/manga research for interested fans and researchers alike.
