Out of these eroge which franchise is the most successful. Also what's your favorite visual novel franchise? Thank you. (P.S. Fate/Stay Night doesn't count because if I put it in we all know what's going to happen).Last modified on 2019-09-13 at 07:14

Out of the choices it has to be Rance. Excluding Fate/Stay Night the most sucessful eroge franchise might actually be Kanon, being the last step to making eroge part of otaku culture and spawning two anime, one being very sucessful.

Successful in terms of what? Financial success? Longevity? Creating quality products? Popularity? Being historically-defining?

It's obviously Rance.
Think you should've put in Nekopara or Muv luv or Fate Stay Night instead of 9-nine & ChuSingura lol.Last modified on 2019-09-13 at 20:55

Going by my personal definition of what eroge is I gotta go with Rance. I personal think Majikoi has best balance of some plot and eroge/sex given choices. The rest have too much plot and seriousness for me to get invested in an eroge. Rance has most sex with some plot as well even if I am not a fan I still argue it has most important requirement in spades vs rest would make argument is not as much an eroge as vn that has sex. A movie that has sex is not consider a porno just because of that.

Obviously, Fate Stay Night has the 1st place, the creators made more than 3 billion $ from FGO. Nasu probably is the most successful writer ever, I doubt even the most popular western writers have more money than he has now.

Steins Gate with more than one million copies sold might be the second. Yeah, I know it has no ero.Last modified on 2019-09-18 at 08:43

In the Western side, definitely Rance out of all of those. Other than F/SN and all of its spinoffs, Nekopara is arguably the top when it comes to eroge sales wise. The problem with Muv Luv is that it hasn't had much staying power past its initial KS. I guess there are the Grisaia spinoffs, but those mostly stay afloat with constant kickstarters.

As far as visual novel franchises go in the West in general, Rance is somewhere in the middle. It's not a runaway hit in the mainstream like FSN or Phoenix Wright, but it's not hopelessly obscure either.

#11, because it'd be a no-contest- read the thread, it has been explained multiple times...
