This year marks the 10th anniversary of Harukanaru Toki no Naka de stage plays. Nishimori also directed and wrote the script for last year's stage play adaptation of Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 6 Gentō Rondo (pictured right), which ran in May 2017.
KOEI released Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3 for PlayStation 2 in 2004, and released an "Ultimate" port for PlayStation Vita in February 2017. The game inspired two television anime specials: Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3: Kurenai no Tsuki and Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3: Owari Naki Unmei.
KOEI's Harukanaru Toki no Naka de romance adventure game franchise has inspired a number of game follow-ups, original video anime, and manga. The 2004-2005 television anime Haruka: Beyond the Stream of Time – A Tale of the Eight Guardians is based on the first PlayStation game. Bandai Entertainment previously released the television anime in North America, and the anime is now streaming on Tubi TV.
