Here in the land Down Under, the "bishie culture" isn't nearly as widespread. Racism and excessive drinking seems to do the trick, though! ;P *Fails at promoting Australia*

I almost fell down my chair when I read your comment, LOL \(T∇T)/. You read my mind...

No-one I know knows what a Visual Novel is, but I do have some friends that watches Anime and do a bit of cosplay (Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball, you know the drill T_T).

This forum is a blessing.. let our fangirling souls wander free in this forum! ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ

I doubt people here know such a thing exists! And I don't bother speaking to anyone about it either.

In Jamaica, virtually non-existent .__."

I got a few people into it though xD even if they don't get it they try it out ^^ and tell me what they think and fangirl with me xD

You have the occasional hardcore Otakus, those are the ones that use the Jamaica-Japan relationship whatever and go away. But they don't really know about Visual Novel games, they're more retro/PC/RPG/old school type gamers...and Pokefans xD

There are some card game fanatics xD but I haven't met my Katsuragi-kun yet ;A;

everyone else:

COD, Red Dead Redemption, FIFA....more sports games, Car racing games....shooters, FPS, etc etc and ugh =_____=

Oh god every time someone uses "cartoon" to refer to anime I flip a table :/ We have it slightly better than you though, our university has a good number of anime fans. Still the general population are pretty ignorant.

Very unpopular, I'm the only person I know who plays visual novels, most of the people get confused when I mention it, they don't know what it is T_T
I'm very grateful to the Internet and Internet shopping, otherwise I too probably would have never known about visual novels

I'd say very small. I am seeing a few friends link Otome game stuffs though I don't think they know what it is or if it's even a market.

Hats off to Jurassic Heart that got the attention of my one friend xD

I think if I were in a more densely populated area then I would meet more VN enthusiasts, but since I am currently residing in the boonies it's rare to meet anyone who uses the internet for more than Facebook...

I have one friend who enjoys VNs, anime and all that jazz, but she moved away to University, so no more awesome chats about routes we love.

My sister occasionally entertains my girlish ramblings, but she doesn't enjoy talking about this sort of thing. =/

Almost non-existent. If there are rare people who know about VNs, the first thing that will come to their mind is eroge.

For instance, I told my guy friend that most of the time I play VNs. His reaction was, "Isn't that ecchi ones?". I was like "Noooo you got it wrong. You must be thinking of eroge/galge, not otoge." /o\

I'm the same T.T I only have one friend who knows about otoge, but she is not interested in playing them TToTT and I also have one friend who loves romantic stories and admitted to me that she would play otoge if their were more translated in english that she could buy D: (So far, it's only Hakuouki and she doesn't understand, let alone know, japanese history T.T)
and if it wasn't for a certain gaming magazine, I would've never known the existance of 999: 9 Hours, 9 People, 9 Doors and the existance of vn and otoge :3. The sad thing is they only wrote one small article about 999 TToTT

I dont know? Because i never really met anybody who's into otome games in my country. My sis did play some of them i recommend to her but she has a short attention span orz.. so if she find it boring she quit after 1-2 days later :/ or worse after a few hours.. Sigh..

Popular or not? Uh .. I think in my country, those who enjoy doing their share of anime watching, are liking visual novels. Though, not much in majority.

Since I live in the States, I think VNs are somewhat known. The average American probably doesn't know what it is, but some people I've met from different sites that live in the States and play visual novels. There's companies like JAST USA and Aksys that do localisations but for the most part, it's still niche.

I don't know if it's popular, I doubt it. Plus, I don't spread around my love for VN and otoge. I know my friends they'll think I'm wierd (again [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]). Some of them who are watching the same anime as I am probably know what VN is but they don't seem interested.

That's why I'm glad to have found OH *hugs for everyone*

...Sadly... Most of them didn't know what is Visual Novel even after I told/explain to them (many times --my friends) they are still making question mark faces. Some of them tried Visual Novel once but then said it was dull having to read so much. =.=

Visual Novels is like a niche genre in my country sad
I made one for school assignment and most people doesn't even know it (My teacher actually told me to get them rewritten as "Interactive Multimedia").
The genre itself is not entirely unknown, but it seemed to have negative stigma attached to it, that some of my friends just doesn't tell other people that they're actually playing one.

Let's just say I would never say "visual novel" IRL and expect anyone to have an idea what I'm taking about. I convinced two friends of mine to play an otome game once, but they didn't seem to enjoy it too much, so I didn't insist.

I was shocked when, attending my first anime convention, one of the foreign guest cosplayers said she liked otome games, and many of the girls in the room started clapping. I was so happy Laughing dududu

Not much I think. In my country is very rare to found an otaku even at my old school and my university. So, not any my friend or peoples around me playing VN  Crying
