The AEUG and AnimeFrance.fr in Animeland

195-142Last summer, the AEUG performed, through AnimeFrance.fr, a nationwide survey aimed at French anime watchers. The purpose of this survey was to learn more about the habits, the expectations and the opinion of the French anime audience, thus providing the tools required to analyze the French anime market.

The preliminary results of this survey are available today in Animeland, the leading anime/manga-related magazine in France.

The whole results of the survey will be available in December, on AnimeFrance.fr.
