Since there was one anime/manga-related survey that is all about the fandom and characters (Anime/Manga Fandom Survey http://wtw-x.net/index.php?topic=377.0), how about another survey about anime, manga and a bit of games?

Here the survey goes...

1. List all the anime that you're familiar with(meaning you've seen at least a bunch of the episodes and you know the story and characters fairly well)?

2. Out of those, list your favorites(doesn't have to be in order.)?

3. What was the first anime you ever watched, when did you first watch it, and what was your first impression?

4. List some of the manga you're familiar with?

5. What type of anime usually interests you?

6. What type of anime least interests you?

7. What, in your opinion, do you think is the most important factor in an anime? (popularity, animation quality, characters, story, having everything revolve around a cool game/toys/robots, etc.)?

8. Which do you generally like better, anime or manga?

9. Which do you usually prefer, dub or sub?

10. List some of your favorite Japanese voice actors and some characters that they play. (Japanese character names too)?

30. When did you first watch it?

31. What was your first impression?

32. Do you watch this anime in its dubbed or subbed version? Or both?

33. Which anime haven't you watched but would like to?

Here are my own survey answers...

1. Pokemon, Monster Rancher, Digimon, Wolf's Rain, Kimba the White Lion, Ouran High School Host Club, Azumanga Daioh, Ginga Nagareboshi Gin and Ginga Densetsu Weed

2. Wolf's Rain, Monster Rancher, Azumanga Daioh, Digimon, Ginga Nagareboshi Gin and Ginga Densetsu Weed

3. Hmmm...let's see...I had first watched Kimba the White Lion when I was a kid, I thought that it was just a Saturday morning cartoon until I realized that it was an anime when I looked up on a website years later.

4. Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, Ginga Densetsu Weed, Digimon and Wolf's Rain

5. Usually an anime that is all about animals, monsters or some comedy shounen/shoujo anime but in a modern setting like school.

6. I don't like the ones without a plot or any overrated popular anime like Naruto.

7. Definitely the characters. I love becoming "attached" to these wonderful characters in these animes. Seeing them become stronger as the story progresses. I love the animes with a ton of reccuring characters like Digimon, GNG and GDW

8. Manga, it is more complex, it doesn't cut out the violence and it does not have a rushed storyline like Ginga Densetsu Weed (I swear that GDW manga is better than the anime).

9. The Subs, it depends on whether the dubbed anime is good or bad.

10. Ummm...I don't really know most but I should list...Hiroshi Kamiya (Kouji Minamoto), Kenichi Suzumura (Kouichi Kimura), Junichi Kanemaru (Ryo Akiyama), Hiroki Takahashi (Impmon/Beelzebumon), Yuto Kazama (Yamato Ishida), Nanaho Katsuragi (Kudamon), Soichiro Hoshi (Masaru Daimon) and Mamoru Miyano (Kiba of Wolf's Rain and Tamaki of OHSHC)

11. I don't care much about dub voices but here goes...Mona Marshall (Toboe, Terriermon, Izzy of Digimon and Sheila Broflovski of South Park) and Derek Stephen Prince (Ken Ichijouji and Impmon/Beelzemon)

12. I think it would be Pokemon for the worst English dub but I don't know about the best dub.

13. I actually hate popular anime and here is the list...
Naruto - too overrated and too much fillers
Inuyasha - Yawn...even if Kirara gets me interested
Fullmetal Alchemist - even if the Nina-Chimera (I have heard) interest me, I find it boring
Bleach - blah...
Death Note - Boring...
Beyblade - Stupid little fad...
Yu-Gi-Oh - Same as Naruto and Beyblade for stupid fads

14. Ummm...I don't do it unless somebody says something.

15. *Shrug*

16. Ho shit...Here we go...
Wolf's Rain: Kiba, Hige, Blue, Tsume and Hubb

18. Digimon: Gomamon, Patamon, Tailmon, Renamon, Calumon, Impmon, Gaomon and KUDAMON
Monster Rancher: Tiger and Hare

19. Bah! I don't play video games

20. Those background music and theme songs from Digimon and Wolf's Rain

21. Wolf's Rain: Hige/Blue, Kiba/Cheza and Hubb/Cher
Digimon: TK/Hikari, Sora/Matt, Joe/Izzy, Michael/Mimi, Ken/Yolei, Daisuke/Wallace, Matt/TK, Ken/Matt (Adventure 01 and 02), Rika/Ryo, Kazu/Kenta, Takato/Henry (Tamers), Kouji/Kouichi (Frontier), Masaru/Tohma, Ivan/Nanami and Ivan/Yoshino (Savers)

22. Youtube, downloaded videos on the computer, TV and VCDs

23. "Moumentai!" - Terriermon
"This is the worst!" - Yoshino

24. Ummm...the Digimon movies in subs not the dubbed version

25. Digimon. The storyline is complex, has some action, comedy, good monster designs and the characters are fun to adore.

26. JOE KIDO, he is an underrated handsome nerd and he's fun to watch. His Digimon partner Gomamon is also cute and awesome.

27. Ummm...I don't know much...

28. Ummm...

29. During the Pokemon vs Digimon war

30. 1999

31. I thought it was a rip-off of Pokemon until it went deeper for the storyline.

32. Dubbed...but not the American dub, it's a Singaporean dub (follows the Japanese elements but it's in English) and some subbed episodes

33. Ummm...Suggest some good anime that are all about animals or some school comedy just like Azumanga Daioh
Would you like to try?
