A lot of old staples showing up again this year––perhaps you could say the survey likes beating dead horses––with quite a number of new titles in the top 25 too. General demographics are very consistent with previous years this time:

Preferences for voice acting and adult content remain fairly consistent as well, with the primary concern for most respondents being whether content was changed or removed when compared to the original Japanese release:

For fun this year we asked about preferences regarding the gender of a game’s protagonist and its love interests! Opinions seem to not be nearly as strong as you might expect, with over half of respondents having no strong preference regarding the protagonist’s gender and 20% having no preference on the matter for love interests:

That’s about it for the survey this year. Thank you all again for participating! Our first convention of the year will be Anime Central (May 19th – 21st) and we hope to see you there!
