She says that she especially has difficulty with a leading role and with adlibbing. "Obscene Model" (August 1999) was another video in which Kanazawa had to use her acting abilities. She played the role of a race queen who seduces her sponsor and her cameraman. This video also included a scene in which the actress visits a man's home—an amateur—and performs for him.

VCDs and DVDs

In addition to videos and DVDs, Kanazawa released several works in the VCD format. She initiated a four-volume "Special Edition" VCD set in December 1997. All of these releases contained selections from Kanazawa's videos and images in the .BMP format. The first VCD "SUPER BEST" in this series had highlights of Kanazawa's debut and scenes from "Tough Adolescence".

This one also featured highlights from four previously released videos, as well as behind-the-scenes images.

Kanazawa's first DVD release was a reissue of her debut video. Much was made of the visual clarity of the still new medium in advertising the release. It was claimed that the picture was so clear, Kanazawa's pubic hair (the display of which was banned by Japanese censorship laws), could be seen.

Fetish videos

Kanazawa has also appeared in several fetish films focusing on particular sub-genres of the AV industry. Her January 1999 entry in Alice Japan's popular nihongo|"Female Ass"|女尻|Meijiri series focuses on various manipulations of the actress's posterior, and includes scenes with panties and lotion.

In magazine shoots, Kanazawa often appears dressed as a schoolgirl. Her first video to make use of this common theme in Japanese erotica was "Uniform Indecent Doctrine", released in October 1998.

In addition, this "cosplay"-themed video had Kanazawa wearing the costumes of a nurse, an elevator girl, and a policewoman in a miniskirt.

Autobiographical videos

"Legend Of An AV Idol" (February 1999) was Kanazawa's first video for Atlas. This release focused on Kanazawa's career and stories of how she reached the number one spot in the Japanese AV industry.
