Is Game of Thrones popular in Japan? Game of Thrones is the biggest show in the Western World but is it known or even liked in Japan?

Last time I checked, no. but I have heard this its popularity has risen a lot in Asia recently so things may have changed since then.

I have a friend who's from Osaka and she's never heard of the Song of Ice and fire books or the TV show. "Not popular here I think" she said in Engrish.

Although oddly enough my same friend is a high-ranking member of the Tolkien Society's Japanese sector

rumor has it that it's not really all that popular due to access to it. just because it's world wide, doesn't mean all the world can access it. bad marketing on HBO's front, but it's known here and there but not really popular. but I can imagine there are some things highly popular in only Japan and nowhere else, so not all things are global I suppose.

Depending on how popular Berserk may be in Japan you think it would, but also maybe not since one of the many many reason the series sucked is because all 3 movies performed well below expectations.
Then again with Berserk and HxH who wants to deall with a serious famous for hiatus that will never end?
