Ballad of a Shinigami is a heart-warming tale that revolves around Momo the Shinigami, or god of death, and her black cat companion, who interact with the world of the living. Every time a human heart is touched by the Shinigami, the world is filled with kindness, and sadness...

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora focuses on the developing relationship between Yuuichi Ezaki and Rika Akiba. Both are teenagers who share the same hospital in Yuuichi's hometown. Yuuichi is drawn to her despite her unreasonable behavior. But when Rika confides in Yuuichi about her illness, he understands the reason for her willfulness: Rika doesn't have long to live.

Keitai Shoujo begins with Hiro Aida, an ordinary high school student with no girlfriend. Then one autumn day, he downloads a screensaver for his mobile phone. Suddenly, with a bright flash of light, his phone transforms into a little girl. The girl Rin proclaims, "If you don't find a girlfriend by Christmas, I will return to my world forever, and your mobile phone will disappear." Finding a girlfriend -with this mission Hiro's adventure begins with Rin. Keitai Shoujo is a unique offering in that it places the outcome of the story in the hands of its viewers.
