Good times

Others view 22-year-old Wang Zilu as a super student. He graduated from high school a year early through an experimental program in Hebei province's Handan.

He was accepted by the country's top aeronautics science and engineering school, Beihang University.

He spent his senior year as an exchange student at Sweden's Lund University.

He enrolled as a doctoral student at Beihang's Fert Beijing Research Institute, studying spintronics in the school named after Nobel physicist Albert Fert.

While his academic career is outstanding, his hobbies are typical.

"I play games-all kinds of them," Wang says.

"I've played computer games since I was a kid. I also like Japanese anime, such as Detective Canon and Naruto."

Gaming is the second-most popular pastime among the demographic, with 58 percent of those surveyed naming gaming as their favorite leisure activity.

Music took the top spot, with 62 percent.

Perhaps surprisingly, reading beat out watching videos-although by 1 percent at 40 percent.

Cartoons and anime (considered a separate category) followed closely-and tied with travel-at 37 percent.

The age group is particularly fond of nijigen-literally, the "two-dimensional realm"-a Japanese word they use to refer to anime. Many frequent the video-streaming site, which is hailed as "the portal to nijigen".
