Hello! i'm selling some Hakuouki merchandise at my sales post! :) feel free to take a look and ask if you have any questions!

I was curious about how Hakuoki North America version's sales number is going so I searched the web and figured out it ended up selling over 30000 copies in the first week of release. And most comments in Amazon are very positive as well.
which I think is really a good number as the first otome game released in America. Since I’ve left the States for quite a long time I don’t know how the taste of fan girls in English-speaking countries has changed. Are fan girls there today familiar with otome games at all? Or is it still a pretty new genre for them? If Otomate is to release another one in North America, which one do you guys think will sell well, stories based on/related to Japanese history/culture (like Hiiro no kakera, Nisei no chigiri, Genroh, Toki no Kizuna, etc), games which have already been animated (Amnesia, Hanayaka nari wagaichizoku, Brothers Conflict, etc), or games which are totally fantasy or modern style (like Wand of fortune, NORN9, Diabolik Lovers, Glass Heart Princess, etc)?
And one more thing is, if, not just Otomate, but other otome game companies are to pursue the western market, what can be done to attract the non-gamers or non-otaku to buy the products?
I really would like to know how western and Asian fan girls are different so if anyone can give me some ideas I’d be very happy!! Thanks very much!!
