Hentain dating sims
In anime, dating sim is shorthand for dating simulation.
So much so that retailers such as Amazon and Rosenqueen have sold out, demonstrating to publishers that there is indeed a fanbase.
Throw in the fact that it had a very polished turn-based strategy system and you have the first truly successful English-translated bishoujo game.

#6: Phantom of Inferno (DVD, Nitroplus/Hirameki Intl.)Phantom of Inferno put Nitroplus on the map and was later adapted into an anime known as 'Requiem for the Phantom.'

It is the dating sims, interpersonal stories, and the fine art of moé that take center stage.#9: Princess Waltz (PC, Pulltop/Peach Princess)Pulltop's audaciously entertaining piece shows what happens when Uno meets hentai.Often referred to as a “Fate/Stay Night clone,” Princess Waltz tells the story about a royal dance where six princesses compete for the right to marry the Prince of Eldhiland.The premise may sound more like something you would expect from a shovelware title like Natsume’s Princess Debut, believe me when I say it’s not.Instead, the story is closer to an action genre anime like My-Hime in which sexy schoolgirls fight using special weapons and powers, and if that doesn't turn you on...my friends, otaku you are not.Fourteen years, if you're counting from the beginning of the series.
