Default Anime Fan Study

Hey, I'm at university and one of my media assignments is to do a virtual ethnography where I ask questions and get an understanding of how the fandom I choose understands media as part of their social and everyday life. I chose to look at western fans of anime, as I am a fan of anime and I find it interesting how people become attracted to anime even though, most of the time, it is not made for our culture. If you feel uncomfortable with me asking questions and want me to delete this thread then I will, and all your responses will be anonymous, in my study, you can even pick your own nicknames for me to use instead of your online usernames, if you don't pick one for yourselves I will make one for you. Please state that you are happy for me to use your response in my study in your comments. You may pull out of the study at any time by messaging me and/or stating that you no longer wish to be part of the study in this thread.

So my questions are:
- What first attracted you to anime?
- What do you enjoy about anime?
- Do you prefer anime to western made animation? If so why?
- Do you feel you are ever directly advertised to watch anime? If so why?
- Do you ever feel that anime is directed to western culture?
- What do you feel are the positives and negatives of anime?
- Do you think anime ever reflects western society? If so how does it?
- How do you watch anime? (for example: streaming, TV, etc.)
- Do you think you have much power in the industry as a fan?
- Do you feel that western culture has embraced anime?
- Do you participate in this fandom? (for example: do you make AMV's or create fan fictions?)
- Do you feel like you're part of a community being a part of this fandom?
- Do you think there's a hierarchy between fans in this community?
- Do you prefer watching dubbed or subbed anime?
- How often do you participate in anime forums' threads?

Please try to answer the questions in as much detail as possible.
It's up to you on whether you just want to answer one question, a few of them or all.
If you are ever unsure on what the questions are asking then please feel free to ask me what I mean.
If you wish to discuss anything else that you feel would be helpful to this study please do.
Thanks .
