Of the fourteen classifications identified by IDEA, four were represented by the female main characters found on the “Top Ten” lists: visual impairment, deaf-blindness, emotional disturbance, and orthopedic impairment. These graphic moves suggest interesting spatial and temporal juxtapositions and facilite visual transitions from panel to panel, breaking down the clear separation of narrative moments and instigating a flow approaching (though still very far removed from) the rapid frame-to-frame transitions found in film.

The origins of eroge began in the early 1980s, while the computer industry in Japan was struggling to define a computer standard with makers like NEC, Sharp, and Fujitsu competing against one another. [28] The PC98 series, despite lacking in processing power, CD drives and limited graphics, came to dominate the market, with the popularity of eroge games contributing to their success. [28] [29] Due to the vague definitions of any erotic game, depending on its classification, citing the first erotic game is a subjective one.
