Some time ago, NHK searched the ages of OP readers. This the new of that moment:
It would be interesting to see what will be the distributions among OP readers here in MH; so, what group do you belong to?Quote:
Sorry for the grammar mistake in the question: belongs*

I'm in that 19-29 group. For 2 more years at least. Started watching OP when I was 15, I think.
I'm also in that group (19-29). Started a fantastic adventure with OP 6 or 7 years ago.. If i remember correct
Oh yeah. Not so long anymore and i will come to the next group. ^^
And as i started with One Piece i was in the first group!
I guess it's too much to hope that I'll follow One Piece in the last group as well?
Meh, I feel so young here. I started watching One Piece when I was nearly 16, or 16 already but even though I really love this manga and anime, I honestly doubt that I will read/see it till the very end. No particular reason, just my opinion.
Shouldn't the first option be 1-17 though? I predict a huge percentage of my kindred, as most here have grown up during the 90/00s.:-P
I'm 21, started reading it I think when i was 18 or 19?
The poll options are grouped in such a way that it will badly skew results. The Japanese poll was conducted at Kinokuniya Bookstores, the largest chain in Japan, polling a large cross section of Japan. The population being polled at MH is very, very different. The vast majority of our members are between 18 - 29 years old. We have only a very small population of members under 15. Grouping 18 year old members with 1 - 17 will not tell you anything about who is reading One Piece. There are too many 18 year olds, and too few 15 or below. So many of our members are between 19 - 29, grouping them all together will not tell you very much either. If you really want to learn something about the age of One Piece fans, my advice is something more like:
That would better reflect who comes to MH, and thus who potentially is reading this thread. The current poll reflects the customer base of Japan's largest bookstore, a much different sample population.
- 1 - 14
- 15 - 17
- 18 - 24
- 25 - 29
- 30 - 39
Don´t forget though, the result NHK has refers to the volume readers or rather the volume buyers, it does not include the readers who prefer to buy WSJ.
- 1 - 13
- 14 - 18
- 19 - 24
- 25 - 29
- 30 - 39
- 40 - 49
- 50 or more
In that way the groups would cover what you point to, and also we could add the total results in a way that makes possible the comparison with the Japanese search: still you have in those groups the data about 1-18, 19-29, 30-49, 50+. :-)
Started when I was 10, I'll be 17 next week
I'm also in the 18-29 group, though I started reading when I was 16 after reading up to the current chapter in naruto I needed something more and couldn't resist reading at least the other "big three"
Well I turned 21 in march lol... I watched back since 4KidsTV had it in America until it got cancelled the first time here... never knew about the edits until I started reading manga with my friends at my technical college... and then I picked it back up, it's funny how awesome it was the second time around even though I didn't mind the edits lol
