In a recent poll of ANN readers who buy Newtype USA at the newsstand, 45% said they intend to stop reading.

In a recent Anime News Network poll regarding Newtype USA, 45% of respondents that buy (or bought) Newtype USA at the newsstand said that they intend to stop buying the magazine, while only 15% intended to switch to a subscription.

Although a very high percentage of readers that chose to answer the poll indicated that they intended to stop buying Newtype USA, the poll itself can not be considered conclusive as it did not ask participants why they planned to stop buying the magazine, and polls of a similar optional nature are more likely to be answered by people who are unhappy with the current state of affairs.

Corrected Poll results Based on Newsstand Buyers Only:
I used to buy at the newsstands, but intend to stop. 537 45.2%
I used to buy at the newsstands, and intend to continue. 252 21.2%
I don't know what I'm going to do yet. 222 18.7%
I used to buy at the newsstands, but intend to subscribe 177 14.9%


Total number of respondents that purchase(d) Newtype USA at the Newsstand: 1188
