Oh, the eternally sad story. :???:

I'm pretty sure (and trust me, I was never so sure as I'm right now), NOBODY in my area is listening to Eurobeat. No, better, they even don't know, what Eurobeat is. They would just say: "Ehm..., yeah, that's some... kind of music, right? Yes, ehm...I heard about that... maybe! I don't know!"

I can't imagine, that in my area are actually people, who knows about Eurobeat. I mean, Eurobeat was never mainstream (thank god), and if something's not mainstream, it's automatically unknown. And when I see people listen to music, then it's just the whole Hip Hop-filth or that mainstream-crap, that you hear every fuckin' day on the radio. The usual shit, you know. >_>

But to be fair, I never asked the people, what they hear and I never told them, what I hear. For example my parents. They know, that I love Rock and Metal. They also see me always wear my headphones. But actually they don't know, what I really hear for music. Just because I've never told them. And yes, they also never asked me.
But maybe it's just a little too embarrassing for me. I mean, it's awkward enough, that they know, that I watch anime, but then this kind of music?
Yes, it's always the same! It's difficult to talk about! Or do you have no problems? I mean, I would like to show my parents (and maybe some other people), how cool Eurobeat is and what's so special about. But that could probably meet with rejection or even worser. I don't know. I just can show people on the internet, how awesome Eurobeat is, but in fuckin' RL? Nah...

So, the popularity here is.... zero. Not 0,1% or 0,2%, it's really zero. Maybe I'm the only Eurobeat-fan in my area. But it's alright for me. The most important thing is, that I can enjoy Eurobeat. It's enough for me to be a huge fan.

It was never marketed outside of Japan, mostly because of Avex, so it is to be expected that no one knows of. Same thing with k-pop unless they market outside US like BTS and such.
