White Album (Howaito Arubamu) is a Japanese adult visual novel released on May 1, 1998 for the PC by Leaf.
Due to the game's strong addictive qualities, White Album is also known as "White Drug" in South Korea.
An unofficial Korean translation was released in 2003. Also in 2003, a renewal package of the game was released compatible for the Windows 98/Me/2000/XP.

White Album is the first bishōjo game made by Leaf that has not used the title of "visual novel", so there are some differences between the system of White Album and the other previous Leaf games. One of the most distinctive feature is that the game's hero already has his girlfriend, so the objective is not to form a new relationship, but to either keep the girlfriend, give up, or act as if nothing happened.

A set of 66 White Album trading cards were released in 1998.

War of Genesis III

War of Genesis III is a console and computer role-playing game released by Softmax in 1999. Additionally, this title is unofficially known as War of Genesis III: Part 1 to distinguish the sequel, War of Genesis III: Part 2. Part 1 contains episodes 1, 2, and 3, while Part 2 contains episodes 4, 5, and 6. Though continuous in story, there is a time gap between the two parts that is millenias long.

War of Genesis 3 is a turn-based role-playing game with a minor element of real time strategy game. This minor real time element is called the Legion System. For example, a small number of individually uncontrollable characters surrounding the leader character is considered as one whole player, contributing a faster pace of duration for a huge scale combat for a turn-based Tactical RPG.

Now no longer in service, The War of Genesis Arena was an extra feature for The War of Genesis III: Part 2. It was a game in which players controlled one of the characters in War of Genesis III Part 1 and Part 2 to play a cooperative SRPG style game online.

Episode 1 : Shivan Scimitar
Saladin, whose real name is Philip Pandragon, leads a mercenary group called the Shivan Scimitar. He joins in the civil war going on in Tur with intentions to weaken the nation so that the Kingdom of Pandragon can take it over, but finds himself falling in love with Sherazard, who is a young daughter of Scieiman the 5th. He abandons his intentions, but soon the weakened nation of Tur gets invaded by the kingdom of Pandragon. Sherazard is murdered by the Beaumont and Saladin goes in a deep bout of depression and rage.

Episode 2 : Crimson Crusade
The story follows a zealous young man, the Grandduke of Beaumont, referred to as simply "Beaumont." He conquers all the resistance within the Pandragon Kingdom's territory, and becomes the king of the Kingdom of Pandragon, overthrowing the aristocracy that had been characteristic of Pandragon for ages (Beaumont views the aristocracy as reason for Pandragon's weakness in comparison to the amount of territory it controls, because the nobles wouldn't unite for a common cause). When he invades the nation of Tur--under the declaration of a "Crimson Crusade"--it is revealed that his brother, Philip Pandragon, is alive.

Episode 3 : Apocalypse
Christian de Medich is the main character in this episode. Christian and his partner Joan Kartwright work for ISS (Imperial Secret Service.) They investigates the cult following of a former ruler of the Geysirian Empire, the Dark Prince (A.K.A G.S., Karl Styner). Along the way, they meet up with a mysterious individual who refers to himself only as "The Iron Mask." With Iron Mask's help, they find a conspiracy that will doom the world that they live in. Before that happens, the Iron Mask offers an unconventional solution, which Christian reluctantly accepts

Video Girl Ai

Video Girl Ai is a manga series created by Masakazu Katsura and published by Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump. It also has an anime adaptation. The manga is published in English by Viz Communications and in Spanish by Grupo Editorial Vid. It was formerly published in the anthology Animerica Extra by Viz.

It was started in 1990 and continued until 1993, and fifteen manga volumes were produced. The first 13 volumes tell a story about a video girl named Ai Amano. The last two volumes, which came years later, focus on a video girl named Len, hence the new name for these two volumes – Video Girl Len. In fact, a pun is present here which is lost in translation; the two video girls' names, "Ren" and "Ai", combine to form ren'ai – a Japanese word used to describe the type of romantic comedy that Video Girl Ai is. Although they have different protagonists, the "Ai" and "Len" sub-stories are not entirely unrelated; they take place in the same setting, with a similar premise. Two characters from the first 13 volumes also appear in volumes 14 & 15. Volume 15 concludes with a bonus chapter about Video Girl Haruno. Her story is totally separate from the stories of Ai and Len.

A live-action movie of Video Girl Ai was released in 1991.

The Video Girl Ai anime is a six part OVA series which was produced by I.G. Tatsunoko. The series was released in 1992 by Jump Video. It roughly covers most of the material found in volumes 1 and 3 of the manga (and some of Volume 2). The character designs for the anime remained faithful to the manga style.

It is commonly speculated that the author, Masakazu Katsura, used this series as what could be described as a pilot; although he wanted to write a straight romantic comedy, he included sci-fi and action elements, so that the series would guarantee to be a success with both his publishers and (teenage male) audience.

Video Girl Ai was followed in 1993 with another sci-fi/romantic comedy manga DNA² and by the straight romantic comedy I"s in 1997.
