From 24 June to 29 July 2011, we invited J-MELO viewers to take part in an online survey* about themselves, the show, and Japanese music. We got valid responses from 573 viewers around the world. We hope you find the results interesting.

*We announced the survey in our international broadcasts on 28 June, in our domestic broadcast on 17 July, and on the J-MELO website.
