* ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII'': (1997, along with YoshinoAoki): Akari Kaida composed the majority of this game's music, and also sang the ending song with Yoshino Aoki -- this soundtrack is one of Kaida's most memorable works. When ''[=BoF3=]'' was released, its music was a somewhat [[LoveItOrHateIt controversial point]] -- some people lauded the creative use of jazz+funk music in the fantasy setting, while others thought jazz [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks had no place]] in any fantasy RPG. Kaida did not return to compose ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'', which was composed entirely by Aoki (though with an arrangement of a song or two Kaida had composed for ''[=BoF3=]''). As years have passed, the music of ''[=BoF3=]'' has aged fairly well.
