It is an original scenario which roughly introduces Etou, Kaji, and Kira by retelling a few of their in-game events. Characters visuals are based on f changes in the anime. Theme songs were Soukyu no Score ~The score in blue~ by stella quintet+ (OP, performed by Tsukimori, Tsuchiura, Shimizu, Hihara, Yunoki, and Etou's voice actors) and You're in my heart (ED, performed by Kaji's voice actor). An event to celebrate the DVD release of the TV specials was held with Mamoru Miyano (Aoi Kaji) and Satoshi Hino (Kiriya Etou) as the voice actor MCs.
Several CDs and databooks were created. Free samples of the four panel comics anthologies published by Koei can be read online at Gamecity. The Neoromance Jewelry entry for the series uses f character motifs.
