Hello everyone !
Yes, they’re here : results and analysis of Alyst census 2015 answers! From september 1st to october 1st, 1029 of you did answer to this census!
The first goal of the census is to locate you, in a way to be able to see if there is other Alysts in your area. Here is the great map of Alysts :
This map also allow us to see in which cities you’re the largest group, to look for cities where we could go (for example, during conventions).
As you may see, biggest group are in: Paris (69), Lyon (39), Toulouse (22), Bordeaux (22), Lille (22), Nantes (15).
Beside France and bordering countries, we were glad to receive answers from Japan, Sweden, Italy, Poland, DOM-TOM and much others!
Note : Since people didn’t tell their states for USA, we gathered everyone in the “country” category to analyze data.
Census contained also questions about you, dear Alysts, and here is the sum up of your answers.
Beside female and male genders, we adid allow other options. Thus, a part of your answers (35, which is 4%) tends to not tell their gender, whereas 5 people consider themselves as agender or genderfluid. Those last two options were registered under the “Other” category for the data analysis.
Several answers weren’t considered but deserve to be mentionned anyway : we had answers from 2 aliens, 1 watermelon, 1 female magikarp, 1 plane tree, 3 unicorns, and other wonderful creatures…
Those results can be compared with the general analytics we can see on social networks (for example Facebook) : there is average 65% women for 35% men.
Which medium age did you expect for Alyst community? With 985 answers, it’s 17 years old (17.79 to be precise). Alysts ages go from 10 years old to 44 years old, with most of them between 15 and 19 years old.
Three of you were century-old (wow!) but weren’t considered in the results for a better analysis.
You still can notice that 46% of people who take the survey are adults.
WHERE DO YOU USUALLY BUY YOUR CULTURAL CONTENTS (MANGA, GOODIES, CD, etc.)?
We let you choose between buying online, buying at specialized shops, in a bix box store or other places. People who did choose the “other” option said all “conventions” : we gathered then those answers under the “convention” category.
It was a multiple choice question. 967 people answered to this one. Results below shows cumulative answers.
The vast majority of you buy their merchandising in specialized shops (conventions included) and online!
HOW DID YOU DISCOVER ALYS?
You could only give one answer between several options.
Answers were gathered under various categories. Thus:
- « Partners broadcast» category gathers broadcast by song composers on their channel or VoxWave broadcast partners where are released PVs (YouTube, Wakanim, Soundcloud). It includes also artists platforms (DeviantArt, Page Facebook, Soundcloud…) who took part in an official content creation. If you followed Tatsuki’s work for example (Avenir, Hajime Ni, Marche au pas) and you discovered ALYS by this way, your answer is inside this category.
- « Info website » category gathers various specialized or general news websites (Vocaloid.fr, Crunchyroll, Manga-News…).
- « Others » category gathers various internet searches, randomness and TV broadcast where the project is mentionned.
- « YouTube » category only refers to general YouTube searches and navigation. Subscriptions to partners channels are counted under the “Partners broadcast” category.
986 answered this question.
The two main sources of ALYS discovery are social networks and creations broadcast on various platforms and networks. It shows very well the crowdsourced and participative aspect of the project : creations with ALYS help growing the project impact like a synergy, which is allow then to give artists more visibility, and so on.
DID YOU KNOW A VOXWAVE E-SHOP EXISTED?
How do you want to get thos adorable cutiepie goodies then? And some new ones are coming soon… 🙂
DO YOU BUY GENERALLY GOODIES YOURSELF OR DO YOU ASK SOMEONE (PARENTS, FRIENDS…)?
Only one choice was available. A lot of you told us they wantd to buy ALYS goodies but didn’t have the money. We seperated two groups : people who do not want to buy ALYS merchandising, and people who want to buy some but can’t do it yet. This distinction can lead to a bias.
3 people said “it depends”. To clarify results, we did not add those mentions.
55% of you buy ALYS goodies including 40% who buy them themselves.
For physical shops, don’t forget you can find us at conventions of course, but Tanigami Genève (Switzerland) shop also sells ALYS goodies!
40% of you don’t buy ALYS goodies. Did you enjoy more watching contents? Are you waiting for something specific from us? We’re listening to you!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ALYS SONG UNTIL NOW (AUDIO ONLY)?
At the time of the census, SHARDS had just been released. Multiple choices were allowed.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ALYS PV SO FAR?
Just like for the previous question, SHARDS PV had been released. Multiple choices were allowed.
Tendency joins the one of your favorite songs. We’re relieved: you’re logical and coherent (how thta we had doubts about it?)!
IN WHICH LANGUAGE DO YOU READ NEWS ABOUT ALYS?
As you may know, we write english translations for almost all of our contents (and mostly the more relevant). This means twice more work. We wanted to know if it is really useful for you.
Without surprise, the biggest part of you is French-speaking. We’ll keep translating news anyway, but only the more relevant to keep up with the project.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN ALYS?
Multiple choices available.
Singer at first sight, it’s reassuring to see you like first her voice. But ALYS is a muse and so it’s reassuring too you like with almost the same level artists around her and her appearance.
WHAT IS YOUR JOB?
We received a lot of various answers, from art cabinetmaker to chemistry technician, along with web developer. It was really interesting!
Sadly we couldn’t detail everything, but we tried to gather the 757 results in 3 different groups : Students, Unknown/jobless and Employee/Auto-entrepreneur.
And this corresponds to Alysts age results!
And in conclusion, here is one of the wish we received. 🙂
A big thank you for your answers! Let’s meet at a next census or a next event!
Feel free of course to irganize meetings in your area, this is what the census is for, we will share news about it!
Keep SHL ! <o>
