Hmm. It is hard to tell. Visual novels in general do not see the light of day at the stores, and whenever I merely mention "visual novel," people assume that I am talking about manga – graphic novels. Term confusion is kind of disappointing. It is only through the internet that I have found the concentrated masses of VN-playing people. Come to think of it how many mere bishoujo games have been released on a non-mobile in the States? I can really only think of the otome games here.

I agreed. When someone come and ask me 'what are you doing?' I answered 'I'm playing Vn now' do you think what his/her repaly to me again? they said 'It's game? you only read and choose.. what a waste' And then I'm so Very Mad 

They never understand me.. Oh God.. Frustrated

none of my friends 
nor people i know play 
visual novels/otome games/daiting sims..
im all by myself o.o
(sayy hey this is one of the reasons I joined otome hearts also it was to meet others who share the  love otome games with me .. xD)

the worst part of being the only one playing among my friends is:
when im caught playing an otome game
i get looks...and um people get the wrong idea of what im doing... >.>


Summary: where i live VN/otomes not popular at all= Bleh 

but  I love otome/VN regardless and am not ashamed of it at all (i do get embarrassed by the looks i get though because in real life im kinda shy..)

Not popular at all here. Not a lot of my freinds play them T^T I made a vow to only cosplay from visual novels now [aside from the cosplays I already own] in hopes to getting more people to know about them. =) Also I'm starting to art more VN characters too xD Why aren't these amazing things more popular!!!!

default walking through a mini otome lane

Post by Guest on 27/01/14, 07:34 am

 i heard P3P is kinna new
(time passes fast so sorry if I am incorrect and its been out for 2 yrs - Bert sweating -)

america doesn't have many games 
that i know of that are officially translated 
and are available in many stores
so maybe thats partially why some people in my country
 don't know / want to play otome games.
 
  i do think of otome games as a privilege 
and I am not the type of person
 to demand games in my language
 nor do i expect imported prices to be cheap
(although for somethings I may wait for the price to lower lol  Frustrated )


I do own and play otome games in japanese 
and it doesn't stop me from happy ends -yayy- 
I always have to import stuff 
or play otome apps in english/japanese
 as well as downloading fan made games  Oh you~ 


this is both a good and bad thing 
not having many otome games  in my country. 
Good meaning it doesn't get way over popular
 and that the ones we have translated 
are usually cheaper than importing.


 bad meaning that I don't know anyone
 who likes otome games outside of OH (otome hearts)
and certain games i cannot get my hands on easily..
 but hey i'm very thankful
 i have some place to talk to people 
who understand my interests ^_^
sorry for such a longgg post 
you get a cookie if you read this all the way though..
-tosses cookie in air for you to catch-

Well, I don't live in an English-speaking country, so VNs aren't popular at all. And the price for VNs in my country's money currency is pretty big (especially shipping fee and all)  sad
I can barely find an otaku in my group of friends, let alone someone who actually plays VN Crying

I don't know how popular they are to the masses but considering we at least get the english translated here I guess it's okay. It's a small portion though, I've never seen Hakuoki or anything in a shop but I buy all my stuff online so that's okay.
As for people I know, the girls at least, it's pretty popular. I got a friend into it, she's a sucker for pretty, red-haired boys, and she showed me Hakuoki first actually I also talked to a friend in school about Diabolik Lovers and everthing so we're that little circle of friends that like and play them, but sadly none of us can speak japanese so that's that.  Oh you~ 
(This post has a lot "that's okay"s and my english tends to fail me again. And for your information: I live in Germany so we actually get almost everything that comes out in America etc. The chance that an english-translated Otome doesn't come here is very small. But they'll have to be translated first, I don't know about a company here that'd do that..)
