It seems like forever since I last posted here! I hope you all are doing well!
The reason for my sudden post today is that I am actually currently conducting otome game research in Japan at Kanazawa University. The focus of my research is on the difference between how foreigners and Japanese otome gamers perceive otome games and their darker aspects such as yanderes and twisted characters (and yes, the faculty actually okayed it!) . In order to compare between the two demographics, I’m conducting surveys in English and Japanese as well as interviewing otome gamers and otome game companies.
The survey itself is 35 questions, but to thank people for taking part in it I will be holding a raffle on July 6th 2014 with about 200 dollars (20000 yen) in otome games and goods as the prize. The current plan is for there to be between 3-5 winners depending on how many people take part.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could share this survey with your friends and anywhere you can!
You only have to take one of the surveys as they are the same contents. Feel free to take it in the language you feel most comfortable in.
