A Kiss for the Petals – The Joy of Loving You | Anata wo Suki na Shiawase

Sono Hanabira Anata wo Suki na Shiawase yuri visual novel CG

Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Anata wo Suki na Shiawase (その花びらにくちづけを あなたを好きな幸せ) is the fifth installment of the yuri Hanabira visual novels by Fuguriya. The story revisits my two favorite Hanabira characters, Mai Sawaguchi and Reo Kawamura, from the third Hanabira, Anata to Koibito Tsunagi.

Hanabira 5 Anata wo Suki na Shiawase Hanabira yuri CG

I had low expectations for Hanabira 5, simply because I thought this might just be one h-scene after another. However, although it is indeed just a string of h-scenes, the story and the various conflicts that this cute couple faces are surprisingly nice. (Actually, I always expect Hanabira to have bad stories, and I’m always surprised). Told through the perspective of Mai, the visual novel further explores the interactions between Mai and Reo. Most of that relationship involve the ecchi Mai sadistically teasing the tsundere loli Reo.

Tsun Tsun Dere Dere!

To sum up the eroge quickly… Reo fails her classes and Mai helps her to pass. To reward Reo for passing her quiz, Mai agrees to go on a date with Reo. One day during class, Reo is called to the school office. She returns acting strangely. After a lot of worrying and probing, Mai still does not know what has happened. This results in a huge fight between Reo and Mai, because Mai feels that Reo does not trust in her enough to share her problems… They eventually make up and ends in lots of love love ♥.

Of course, what I love the most about Hanabira are the HCGs. The art style is extremely clean and delicate, which is quite fitting for the pure and innocent(?) yuri genre. Moreover, I love the character designs and clothes of both Mai and Reo. I like their uniform clothes, and I especially love the somewhat emo punk look that Mai rocks in one of the scenes, and apparently Reo loves it as well.

Kind of a funny scene here. Reo is spellbound by the cool and hot looking Mai in her new outfit, and so Mai takes advantage of Reo’s entranced state to ask her to do some pretty ecchi things…

… Some slightly NSFW CGs…

I enjoyed Anata o Suki na Shiawase quite a lot. It is probably among my top favorite yuri visual novels, albeit unlike the other Hanabiras, this one was much shorter. It does start out strong though. In fact, I got a bit embarrassed and flustered playing this. Hehe… Anyway, it is certainly a nice and sweet story.

As usual, the game has adult scenes, so yea… don’t check it out if you’re not supposed to. Now I’m off to play Hanabira 6.

Please please please support Fuguriya by buying the actual game. I bought mine in Taiwan. It comes with more than just the game itself, but also has the cover and inserts and such. In my opinion, the games are all fairly cheap and completely worth it, so please buy the games if possible. They can be found online too. I provide the download only for sampling purposes, because we all hate buying the wrong stuff. But if you really did enjoy Hanabira, do go out and get it. Anyways, enjoy and drop a line if you downloaded from here. ^ ^

    Absolutely Awesome! Got to go now to… err… take care of some personal hygiene. :-D

  6. Wow, nice. I didn’t realize the game was up to 6 installments already. I actually own the first two… I’ve been putting off viewing them for so long because I wanted to master more Japanese first, and sitting by it using a dictionary on every line would ruin the experience. Darn you and your knowing Chinese and your Chinese game option! (I think that’s how you said you read them)

    Reo and Mai seem very… inversely proportional.
    I love the pic with the crepes.

    Seeing this makes me want to go back and try viewing part 1 again.

    http://sonohanabira.countpacula.com/ They’re still working on it… let us all wish them the best.

  7. Snark says:

    Hmm…the lesbians are nice, but I notice a distinct lack of giant robots. This will not do!

  8. Yi says:

    @izaakmak: Hehe, glad you thought it was awesome.
    @Tsundere Yuriko: Yea, I use the Chinese translation patches because my Japanese is even more shaky and crappy. That’s why it’s taking me so long to finish playing Amaranto, which is really heavily plot based. And let’s wish the translation group luck.
    @Snark: The lack of giant robots can be disappointing, but I don’t particularly mind. To each his own. ^ ^

  9. wow! thanks for the link Yi, has been a while since I have played Hanabira (I have 3 games), so I will download this new one.
    Also, I would love if u upload the CG, please.

  10. Yi says:

    @Yuri Downloads: There is also a fourth one beyond the first three that you might want to check out as well: http://listlessink.wordpress.com/2008/12/22/anata-to-koibito-tsunagi/

    Also, Hanabira 5 – o Anata o Suki na Shiawase HCG pack: http://www.mediafire.com/?mvl2gdzzzmt

  11. shijima says:

    Thank you for the pics!
    I haven’t managed to finish a single game yet, it’s on my todo though. =)
    My fave pairing is Mai x Reo.
    For some reason Mai sort of reminds me of Syouko from Aoishiro (just in looks though).

  12. Yoshimi says:

    Sorry for trouble you,but I don’t know why when I download the game from your site but when I click setup….this is appear

    what does it mean,why I can’t setup??

  13. Yi says:

    @shijima: This is my favorite pairing by far too. In fact, if you were only to play one game out of the six, I’d suggest playing either the third one, or this one. Mai also kind of reminds my Syouko. Perhaps because they look similar?

    @Yoshimi: Just rename the Japanese directory from “花びら5_DL版” to “Hanabira 5″ or anything in English, and click Hanabira 5.exe to play. There’s no need to set up. Enjoy.

    @piggy-san44: We go way back in our blogging days and I love reading your blog.

  17. Thank u Yi, the one missing was ‘Aishisa no Photograph’, I wil download it ^_^
    Also, thanks for the CG link ^_^

  18. Yi says:

    @Yuri Downloads: No problem. Also, I did link the wrong one for the fourth one. It should have been Aishisa no Photograph.

  19. piggy-san444 says:

    Add another one to the d/l list :) I have these all saved on my computer somewhere but I forget where I put them!!

  20. Yi says:

    @piggy-san444: If you can’t find them, you could just download them again. Downloads for Hanabira are pretty easy to find on the internet. ^ ^
    … Or you could buy them. I actually bought the first two when I was in Taiwan last winter.

  21. Yuki says:

    oh, If I’m not wrong there’s a sixth one called ”
    Sono Hanabira ni Kuchiduke wo Kuchibiru to Kisu de Tsubuyaite” Right? XDDD and i saw this cute chibi pic, but do you know who are the two characters at the far back? XDDD

  22. Yi says:

    @Yuki: There is indeed a sixth Hanabira, and it features Nanami and Yuuna. The two characters in the background are a classmate and a teacher from the same school. They have their own small yuri story going on; it can be found on the Fuguriya site.

    http://fuguriya.sakura.ne.jp/sp06chuu.html

    By the way, that’s a really cute picture. Source?

  23. Yuki says:

    Oh, Thank you very much! =DD Although I can’t really read Japanese (So I listen to the voices to understand a bit what’s going on XD) so maybe I’ll just browse a little, do you know their names? =D

    And oh source I found it from danbooru here:

    http://danbooru.donmai.us/post?tags=sonohana

    I’m not really fond of hotlinking, it’s such a bad habit of other people, and I forgot to put up my source, XDD Thanks a lot for that answer =DD

  24. Yi says:

    @Yuki: Oh it’s on Danbooru. I hate hotlinking too, so I always either upload images myself or link to top level. Anyway, I actually don’t know their names. I’ll try to find out though.

  25. Yuki says:

    @Yi: Oh, Thank you very much! Fuguriya just keeps on getting us in the dark, oh how wonderful the Japanese Language is, hahahaha! xD

  26. Yi says:

  31. Yuki says:

    Oh Hello Yi~ I DLed the one in Badongo as well. when I extracted it there’s a folder called “DX” and inside it, it has a setup, what’s that? XD

  32. Yi says:

    @K: No problem.

    @Yuki: Don’t worry about the DX. I think the DX folder just helps get rid of the requirement for Direct X.

  33. Yuki says:

    @Yi: ah I see Thank you =D

  34. Sion says:

    Nice review of the game. I can’t understand japanese, so your review sheds some light on the scenario that goes on .

    Like you, I love the Reo/Mai pairing just because of how nice they look together. I also liked Mai’s emo punk look too haha.

    Do you have any information on Sono Hanabira 6? I can’t seem to find any anywhere. Thanks in advance.

  35. Yi says:

    @Sion: Thanks. It’s always nice to hear feedback. ^ ^
    Hanabira 6… I’m not sure where you can get it easily. I will make another post for it sometime later, so if you want to check back later… yea.

  36. Sellers says:

    This Post has absolutely NOTHING to do with the posts above. It however, regards an issue with visual novel games like such as this one that Yi helped me to correct. Because this is last page regarding an actual Hanabira game, I’ll post here. (If you find it more appropriate elsewhere, feel free to move or have me displace it, Yi).

    Regardless, if your computer’s language locale is set to Japanese, but it still is experiencing difficulty reading Japanese text, your OS could be the issue. Users of Windows 7 have experienced difficulty with foreign text (It is replaced by boxes, dots, and other useless figures).

  37. Yi says:

    @Sellers: This is a good place to post that. Thanks for the information. I think Yuki also mentioned something similar. She got text to work somehow though but then lost the voices.

    http://listlessink.wordpress.com/2009/11/02/more-hanabira-stuff-amai-hanazono-and-background-music/comment-page-1/#comment-2401

    Thank you so much for the information that Windows 7 messes with foreign language settings. I’m sure this will be very helpful for those who are trying to find out why their games are not working.

    Hopefully, this issue gets fixed sometime. As for me, I guess I’m staying on Vista for a little bit longer. I really need foreign languages working perfectly for what I generally do.

  38. Yuji says:

    Is there a Chinese patch to this game? If there is, can I get a link to it? 3Q~

  39. Sellers says:

    Oh, something on the Windows 7 issue. Apparently, people have been able to solve it by changing an additional setting:

    Control Panel -> Change Display Language -> Administrative -> Change System Locale for non Unicode programs to Japanese

    Beats the hell out of me why they’d make it a separate control. Sorry for the late response; I honestly kind of forgot about it.

  40. Sellers says:

    Happy to help.

  41. Yi says:

    @Sellers: Thank you so much for the mirrors. ^ ^

  42. Yuri4life says:

    Thx for all the hardwork ! i can read chinese so this is indeed great for me ! When the anime came out please pose it up !!!! xD You are the man,if u are though…lol

  43. Yi says:

    @Yuri4life: No problem. A lot of thanks go out to Sellers as well. I’ll definitely try to post the anime when it comes out.

  44. lolrockgeologist says:

    you rock~

    just found out about these wonderful VNs. this particular couple is -gorgeous- ;-). can anyone tell me if it needs to be played in order? that is, Hanabira 1 first, then 2, and so on? or can I jump straight to 3 (which I have my eyes on)? hope this wasn’t mentioned somewhere and I missed it.

  45. Sellers says:

    You can easily skip the first two and just play three with no repercussions to the understanding of the story in three. To be honest you could probably play any of them in any order that pleases you. But, I would recommend against playing 4 before 2, 5 before 3, and/or 6 before 1. Otherwise, knock yourself out.

  46. Yi says:

    @lolrockgeologist + Sellers: As Sellers said, the first set of three can be played in any order as they are stand alone pairings. The second three of the 6 games each build upon the pairings established in the first three games. The seventh game is yet another stand alone pairing.

  47. Yumeless says:

    The download link in the description that you give for all the Hanabira (the Hanabira 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) it’s for the japanese version?

  48. Sellers says:

    All the Hanabira game links (1-7) are in the (standard) Japanese language unless otherwise stated.

  49. Yumeless says:

    Ok, thank’s. ^^ (it’s just as I want, I can read japanese but no chinese…)
    Are there a link for the 6 and the 7 in this site? I search but I don’t find. é_è

  63. Jojo says:

    oh, and is there like and online book or story of the 3rd hanabira? if so, can i have the link

  64. Sellers says:

    I’m relatively certain that there are no special mac versions of Hanabira. If the normal version doesn’t work, then you’re probably out of luck.

    I’m just as certain there are/were web publications of all the couples, including this one, but I am afraid I don’t have the ones with them in it. My humble apologies. Maybe Yi can help you? Conversely, give me a few days and I’ll have found them, in all likelihood.

  65. darkitsuki says:

    I can’t wait to play this one! I would buy it, but seeming as I don’t have a credit card…

    • Yi says:

      @darkitsuki: I hope you like it. I would highly suggest that everyone who likes it to buy the game. They’re really pretty cheap and it’s nice to support Fuguriya.
      But of course, not all have access. ^ ^
      Have fun!

  66. Kevin says:

    Is it translated to english? Or do I have to play it in Japanese? I’m not good at reading hiragana katagana etc.. :(

    • Yi says:

      @Kevin: It’s not translated into English. Good luck and enjoy the game.

      • Wiliam says:

        What not in english !! ow it kind of dissapointing can anyone giving any walkthrough
        ? By the way tell me how much are the novel when I read about 8?

        • Yi says:

          @Wiliam: It’s not translated, but you should have no problem unlocking all the CGs.
          “By the way tell me how much are the novel when I read about 8?”
          Sorry… I don’t understand this question.

        • Swordwind says:

          I think he’s lamenting the total cost of the series, seeing as you’d have to pay for eight separate novels. Or, Possibly, he is disenchanted by the amount of memory they take up (Which is a little silly to complain about in this case).

        • Yi says:

          @Wiliam + Swordwind: They go for 1700 yen each (1900 yen for the packaged version). So less than $20 each.

        • Swordwind says:

          Mmhmm. I wasn’t validating his comment, I was attempting to translate.

          Of course, when you get up to eight games, the total price isn’t inconsiderable for a student.

        • Yi says:

          @Swordwind: Yea I figured that, but I thought it is still probably useful information to put out there. Agreed completely that eight games are pretty considerable price-wise, and as a student, I don’t see myself buying all eight at once. Luckily, I’ve been slowly getting them over months, so it doesn’t feel as hefty on the wallet.

  67. Wiliam says:

    By the way, I already download it dan extract it , But Why I Couln’t Play It TT

    • Wiliam says:

      wew finally I found why I can’t play it now I have change my folder game and play it ^^ by the way when I check where I download it said “Sample download linked here:”
      It’s only the sample (TT) I thought It the full version

  68. NL27 says:

    Just to make sure, none of these Sono Hanabira games are translated?

  69. xX777Xx says:

    I wish I could read Japanese thou T^T. And I also can’t read Chinese so I only listened the voice and understand very little bit *sobs*. Maybe I need to learn Japanese from now. These games are too good to be missed ^ ^.

  70. xX777Xx says:

    Sorry for bothering you again ^ ^”. Can I ask CG download link for Hanabira 6 & 7? Those pretty CG really drive me nuts XD.

  71. KJ says:

    Thanks for all this, I think I struck gold :D I’m lucky I can read chinese cuz I can only somewhat guess at Japanese

    Do you have a chinese patch for 6 and 7 ?

    Again, thank you for sharing all this awesomeness

  72. Adalyn says:

    Hi,
    I have download the game and also the chinese patch, however, the words that came out are just ??? and @@. Can anyone please help me? Thanks :)

    • Yi says:

      @Adalyn: With the Chinese patch, I think you might need to set your computer language settings to the appropriate language, either simplified Chinese or traditional Chinese. I forgot what the patch is in, but try doing that. Hopefully that will fix the problem. Have fun!

  73. Adalyn2 says:

    @Yi thank you for your help

    • Yi says:

      @Adalyn2: Enjoy some fluffy yuri. ^ ^

      Edit: I just realized some of your other comments got marked as spam by the often flawed Akismet. :(
      Anyways, no need to thank me. ^ ^

  74. Eddie says:

    urmm… how come this 5th installment of the game’s larger than others? just curious

    • Yi says:

      @Eddie: I’m guessing that’s because it’s the best one (not really). ^ ^
      Just kidding… I had no idea that it was bigger.

  75. Rin Tohsaka says:

    Wait… there’s a CG set for all the VNs EXCEPT Hanabira 6?!

    THIS IS AN INJUSTICE!

  76. adel91 says:

    hello Yi.
    It seems that i have problems downloading the Chinese patch for Sono Hanabira 5 because whenever i tried downloading the Chinese patch from mediafire, avast would stopped the file , saying that the file is infected.

    i am quite troubled though, wondering if the patch itself has some problems. but if there is no problem about the patch and that i wouldn’t want to deactivate Avast, is there any way for me to get the file?

    Hopefully you could suggest me some ideas to overcome my problem.Thank you, Yi.

    • Yi says:

      I think that’s a problem with an oversensitive Avast. I am sure the patch has no problems. I’ve tried it myself as have many others. My suggestion would be to disable Avast for a little while when you download the patch. If you don’t want to do that… I’m not sure what can be done, since either way, you’re going to have to download from somewhere. And Avast will block it.

      Good luck. ^ ^

  77. Ichigo says:

    this looks like the best one out of them all. *sighs* sucks that i cant read japanese….
    english patch?
    i feel depressed when i think abou not being able to play these games T_T

  78. Johnny says:

    Some of them complain of not having english versions… what can we say about german people, italian people, spanish people who doesnt understand english (yes it exists, like there are french people who dont understand english) ?

    • Yi says:

      Haha, yea.
      If anyone absolutely can’t wait, I suppose the quickest way is to use some program to roughly translate the text and brute force through the visual novel. Or just learn basic Japanese and hopefully get the gist.

  79. Eddie says:

    although i’ve finished with the 6th game, is there any chance that the english patch is going to come out soon? chinese patch’d be fine too, i didn’t really just want to see the CG i want to know te story also, though i understood alittle, it still troubles me, since i suck at translating

    • Yi says:

      No idea about that. :(
      I’ll post patches as soon as someone has it released, so I guess the only thing I can suggest is just to check back occasionally.

  80. Johnny says:

    Hanabira-kun will do 5th patch after 7th and 3th. But i dunno anything bout 6th (2nd Nanami x Yuuna).

  81. Surprise says:

    So I got the game and when I try to install it all I get are numbers and stuff like that. And yes I got the patches and when I played the en. version only the text worked most of the times errors were popping up and I was never able to instal the full version. Got any tips to help me with this? @_@

    • Yi says:

      Hm… I’m not sure what you’re talking about exactly. The download shouldn’t require installing. Just extract the .rar file and play.

      Also, this one doesn’t have an English patch.

      Good luck. ^ ^

    I just finished savouring Hanabira 5 today, and I feel compelled to say it here lol.
    Reo is (forgive my language) so..damn..cute…and…such tsundere *squeals* and Mai is cool and… perverse (but it’s a good thing…). My head filled with fluff overload, omg~ This Hanabira have a storyline that is better than I expected. Oh, Hanabira 5 is my favourite now. Along with other Hanabiras that I’ve played. …I mean, all of them are my favourite, I couldnt decide which is the top one or *mumbling on and on*…

    Okay I’ve done ranting.

    • Yi says:

      Haha, I feel the same way. ^ ^

      I actually really enjoyed how “perverse” Mai is. It’s so fun to watch her play around with Reo. It’s part of what makes this tsundere shine. That scene at the clothing store… ♥

      Anyway, it really is super hard to decide on a favorite.

    Hello, I have a problem whit this game, and all the solutions I have find doesn’t work, so please help me :(

    When I lunch the game, I have that: http://i.imgur.com/ktyV0.jpg

    Thank you for help me ;_;

    PS: Sorry if my english is bad, i’m french =P

    • Yi says:

      Hm… I really don’t know. You may not have the proper languages installed or something. Did you use the English translation patch?

      Anyway, I hope you get it to work somehow. I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more help. :( Good luck.

  90. White says:

    An english patch? O.o

    Where? x)

    I have the japenese installed on my computer (Vista)

  91. Johnny says:

    The english patch will be out in 5 days.

  92. White says:

    Ho, yes i need it! Can’t wait D=

  93. Johnny says:

    Thank you very much !

  94. Johnny says:

    I’ve finished yesterday ! Well, the plot is a little “so so”, we see this lovely couple in their daily life (and first it begins with a hot scene), with some cute moments (when they eat crepes 2gether) and a lot of ecchi moments, particulary in the dressing room : Mai can be really pervert (but less than Yuuna I think) and Reo shows us an ecchi side of hers :).
    I also enjoyed Kaede & Sara cameos (the latter is still so cuuute), particulary when the latter runs faster than Usain Bolt to find Kaede-chan back…
    Well, let’s go back to Reo & Mai… the last part is a little darker than the rest ( i felt sad for Mai, we can see how much she loves Reo) but all that will have a happy ending, with some emotion !

    My 2 favorite quotes (from Mai) :
    “I was looking your butthole. My eyes stared it before me realizing.” & “Your butt is so round… and its insides are cute too.”

    Damn, this game becomes naughtier & naughtier :an almost-done golden shower, Kaede then Reo who turned into Fountain Women, then Sara’s little butt hole and now that… so good !

    YURI POWAAA !!!

    • Yi says:

      The story is pretty good, but not especially spectacular. However, I think this game has one of my favorite H-scenes of the whole series: the one in the dressing room. It’s just so cute, sexy, and arousing. I really enjoyed it. Mai can be quite a sexual beast. And I love her so much for that. ^ ^

      Agreed. The cameos are really nice. They add a lot of little flavor to the games and tie them to something larger than just two girls. The bit with Kaede and Sara is pretty funny~

      The last part… is a bit more emotional than the earlier parts, but I wouldn’t it’s really dark. Dark is far from Sono Hanabira’s style. But still, I do really appreciate this one being a little weightier.

      ““I was looking your butth*le. My eyes stared it before me realizing.” & “Your butt is so round… and its insides are cute too.”

      Oh my~ ^///^

      So naughty!

      • Johnny says:

        It’s not my fault if Hanabira 04 & 05 got some H-scenes naughtier than usual : blame it on the plot :p

        And yea, the dressing room scene is pretty good !

      • Wonderllama says:

        My favorite H-scene is the first one, when Mai teases Reo until she’s begging Mai to suck her… very sexy. IMO the third game had better scenes and poses, but this one has better dialogue. I was really sad when I thought Reo had left Mai for good!

        I also noticed that Mai was slightly attracted to Sara. I loved that ^ ^

        • Yi says:

          Loll. So descriptive. ^ ^ I enjoyed that scene a lot as well. I thought the third game had better story, but it’s understandable, since the chase is always more exciting to the audience than maintenance of a relationship. Of course, this one is super adorable as well. I think I actually like some of the scenes from this one more; certainly the dressing room scene. It also has better outfits I think.

          “I also noticed that Mai was slightly attracted to Sara. I loved that ^ ^”
          Haha, I can see them being good friends. And Mai is a bit of a lolicon.

  95. Ami_chan says:

    where is the english patch???i cant find ir,sorry @@
    plx!post here some mega upload or something similar way of catching it

      By the way, I like ur pseudo : are u a Sailor Mercury’s fan ?

    • Yi says:

      Just head over to this page: http://goo.gl/qb6cA and scroll down to find the section for The Joy of Loving you and there should be a link to AXYPB’s patch page as well as all the information on this series.

  96. Oh what a beautiful piece artistic work, truly awe inspiring deep devotion they have for one each other…thank you.

    I extract it with winrar, so what do I do now?
    and how to download the english patch?

    sorry I new to downloading it…. anyway thank you very much!!!!

    • Yi says:

      … If people would just actually read the post. And honestly, this whole thing is supposed to be a review, but here we are, mired in comments about downloads.

      Anyway, to get the patch, follow the link in the post. There’s further directions there.

  102. Jick says:

    Hi, I can’t seem to get the right choices as I always get the HALFWAY END thing. Do you know the answers/ choice?

    • Yi says:

      They’re buried in the comments of a post: http://goo.gl/MAqVI

      Anyway, here it is:

      There you go~
      There may be a couple other ways to get to the True End, but this is how i got it.

      Hanabira 2: 1-1-1
      Hanabira 3: 1-1-2-1

    I tried renaming the file in English and copying all the things in the file into a new one but I still can’t run it. It doesn’t work either if I try to run it by using the English patch (the ‘run when finished’ option). Any help, please?

  104. Nyannyan:3 says:

    I think i have the same Error. because i have the applocale, j-lenguage, and that kinda stuff… the error message say something ’bout “Window:file blablabla VOICE.something….”

    • Nyannyan:3 says:

      I must apologize about the way I say the message of error… but im not at home rite now… those parts are the only thing i remember now… T.T i will input the whole message for u to see, if can help me… us…

      • Sari says:

        There are two packed files here, part01 and part02. Unpack both. You’ll get two directories, Hanabira 5.part01 and Hanabira 5.part02. Move all the files from the part02 directory into the part01 directory and remove the part02 directory. Apply the patch and it’ll run. You don’t need applocale or anything else.

      • Yi says:

        Thanks Sari honey~

        I’d like to add a suggestion. A quick fix for many errors people have had is simply dragging all the files from the unpacked rar into a new folder. Hope this helps. ^ ^

        • Nyannyan:3 says:

          O.o wow actually thought that the 2 .rar files were one sole…. but now that u told me i peek on both files and both files are differents rar’s xD, that why i got the error messages :3 THX A LOT!!! Sari And Yi!!!!!!

        • Yi says:

          Credit goes all to Sari for recognizing the issue right away. ^ ^

    About the first and second part. I added the second part to the first part. Then added the English patch to the first part. When I finished the first part it said someone about the end of the first part. When I saw that I thought I didn’t finish it so I added the English patch to the second part but it didn’t work. So did I finish the game or not? The ending was good so I think I probably finished it?

    • Yi says:

      I’m not sure what you’re talking about…

      If you were able to play the game, then there is no problem with the patch.

      To check whether you finished the game, you can go to the CG page to see if you unlocked all the scenes. If not, you made the wrong choices while playing through the V.N. Make different choices to unlock the true ending.

      • Anonymous says:

        I probably unlocked it…I was at the part where Mai found out about Reo’s parents remarrying and that they have to move away but Reo fought with her parents to stay. It seems like a pretty happy ending so I think I’ll just leave it at that ^_^

        • Yi says:

          Icic. Yea it sounds like you did get to the final ending, although both are happy ones. So if you’re still unsure, just check the recollection page to see if there’s an empty box. If not, then ^ ^.

    • Sari says:

      The second part just contains the file for the voices, nothing to translate there or anything and if you did something wrong the game wouldn’t play anyway.

      Figuring out whether you got the real ending is simple: did you get the ending credits movie? Then yes, that’s it. If you just got dumped back to the title screen you got the premature ending instead.

  107. Metaler says:

    So far I’d say this is my least favorite game in the series. It’s by no means bad, but it just feels a bit… bland. I just felt that the story didn’t know which direction it was heading. It was really cute and sexy, and I found the interactions between Mai and Reo to be adorable, and the last parts of the game really touched me. Almost made me shed yuri tears. D:

    The scene in the dressing room was absolutely priceless. Reo getting almost high just from seeing Mai in that emo outfit was really cute… And hey, I don’t blame her. I love that kind of clothing too. :3

    • Yi says:

      I think compared to the origin story (the third) and some of the other couples, this one may feel a little more cliché. Certainly, there isn’t as much action/plot-driven story as there is just simple character building/ development. Both may explain why this felt a little more bland.

      On a related note, I’ve found that the sequels to each of the couples tend to run into the aimless problem, where without a clear goal (the girls end up together), the V.N. often feel directionless. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but just an interesting note.

      Loved the dressing room scene. I think it is probably one of my favorites. Mai is too precious! ♥

    I need an English patch for this one. links to the English patch here, doesn’t work for me at all.
    I tried searching at google, but they’re all no good.
    I really really, need help. I’m almost done with Hanabira 3 too :( (finished Hanabira 4 months ago)
    please! and thanks

  110. veryberry says:

    TTwTT
    I finally finished this one. well actually I feel bad. It’s a good thing this is a download game so I can play it again whenever I want. xD

    anyways, I’m freaking sure of it. This is the best Hanabira couple ever!!

  111. Belphegor says:

    Please help me unlock all the CGs.
    I have repeatedly played this but there are 4 missing pictures in my CG Gallery…
    when I finish playing the game it only says “Half End” yeah something like that…

    • Yi says:

      Links seem fine to me, except the one that links to AXYPB’s site. Give it some time.
      Which link are you talking about? (Might help to be a little more specific, especially when you really have little to contribute. Thanks! :) )

  116. Shizuma says:

    Thanks!, I liked all the games of the serie up to now, I now this one won’t disapoint me.

  117. DarkWyldchilde says:

    Query, while I actually found this on disc at con I ended up working it from the download as I couldn’t get any recognizable way to install it. Now I get to the part where they just finish making love after learning about Reo nearly having to move.

    There’s the talk of the weddding dress and Mai agreeing to wear it, and then it says “HALF end” (or something similar) and then ends with no credits.

    It seemed finished, but I’m afraid I’m missing something.

    • DarkWyldchilde says:

      Okay, went back in specifically it says “Halfway END”. It also has one memory, and four CG’s still blanked.

    • DarkWyldchilde says:

      Sorry, replying to myself becuase when I confirmed follow accidentally deleted.

      • tamed lion says:

        If your getting Halfway End or not depends on the decisions you’ve made on your way through the game. When you get that message, just try to go back and make different decisions.

        • DarkWyldchilde says:

          Ohhhhh thank you very much! I hadn’t run into that before.

          Guess that means I’ll have to start over and play all the way through again…

          Which I knew I’d do anyway. :)

        • DarkWyldchilde says:

          Okay, I’ve done this three more times now, and I’m still getting the Halfway End. I’ve tried switching up my answers to the three question points.

          -When Reo watches Mai with Sara and Kaede.

          -When Reo fails the test and Mai agrees to tutor.

          -When Reo asks Mai out on a date as reward for passing the test.

          Looking up top it’s an extra classroom scene I am missing in the 4 CG/1 Memory, but I’m just not hitting it.

          Can anyone give me a hand? Maybe tell me what answer set I need?

        • Yi says:

          Sorry to see that you’ve had such frustrations with this one. If I remember correctly, the correct choices to get to the complete end is 1-1-1-1 (or possibly 1-1-1-2). 1 is top choice; 2 is bottom. Good luck. ^ ^

        • DarkWyldchilde says:

          Thank you so much. The funny thing is out of 7 of the 8 I got them first try. It’s one of the things that makes it so frustrating. That and anything, no matter how good can become tedious the 4,5,6 etc tries.

  118. Titi says:

    I’m sorry for bothering you with this, but when I play this, it went well for a while. Then after that, a message popped up saying something about IMAGE, and Reo’s picture (the one where it’s not an event CG) on the screen disappeared. After several dialogues, the message popped up again, and her picture reappeared. It’s not that big of a deal, but it irritates me a bit. Is this problem initially present in the game? I applied the patch in two situations, one is after I extracted the .rar file, and another is after I installed it. The message popped up both time. Please reply?

    • Titi says:

      Sorry, I’m replying to myself because I just saw that it’s not only Reo’s picture that disappeared, but also Sara’s when she had a conversation with Mai. And it happens quite a lot. I don’t see Sara on my screen at all, unlike Reo, whose picture reappeared after several lines.

      • Yi says:

        It seems that you may have an incomplete game that is missing some images, but not missing key components since you can still play. I’d suggest re-downloading the game somewhere. Hope this helps. Cheers.

        • Titi says:

          I’ve redownloaded using the mirror link and at other websites. The problem still persists. But I guess it’s fine, since it’s not that bad. Thanks for replying. :)

        • Yi says:

          Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. Good luck with everything, Titi darling. ^ ^

    Hi…and i just want ask about that i can’t download the chinese patch ’cause its been deleted or invalid in mediafire, any other place i can download?

    Greetings! Very useful advice within this post! It’s the little changes that will make the
    biggest changes. Many thanks for sharing!
