Sono Hanabira Anime Spoilers in Yuri Hime and Hanabira 9 Couple

Sono Hanabira anime spoiler yuri

Every once in a while, I like to write something about my favorite visual novel series (and my favorite yuri), Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo. When I saw this image, I knew I had to post something.

News of an anime adaptation has been circulating for a while. That is a spoiler from the anime.

Hanabira anime Yuri Hime 20 Spoiler

It all started a few days ago when a regular reader clued me in on this lovely page in Yuri Hime chapter 20 teasing the much anticipated Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo anime:

“Yi,
As I was reading yuri hime vol. 20 I saw this page…
I think its officially for 18+ only. you can update you post if you’re not busy.”
- hossammilan

I immediately looked around some sources for confirmation and found that spoiler image. There were previous doubts by some over the nature of the Sono Hanabira anime. Like hossamilan, I always thought it was going to be an adult OVA. These confirm that. (Good call Yi!)

Some have also been asking when it is expected to be released… confirmed to be on July 30th.

The page does not give much information. It includes just a brief synopsis of Anata to Koibito Tsunagi and short character introductions for Reo and Mai. If you have gone through the visual novel, there should not be anything too surprising (other than the stunning beauty of seeing Reo and Mai animated). If you have not played the game, I would highly recommend it, as it is one of the more popular of the Hanabira series.

Edit: More spoilers! Thank you, 10sigh_baka, for the Getchu link. ^ ^

Sono Hanabira Wallpaper Reo Mai

There is even more great news, albeit older news that I did not have a chance to make a post for. In an earlier comment, Sellers mentioned a new couple.

“Yi, Fatspanner: I wasn’t just spouting off random hopes, I’m too much of a cautious optimist to do so. Good ol’ Fugiy announced another new couple game for early summer, from what I’ve heard.”
- Sellers

Fuguriya has announced that there will be two releases this summer. One is a re-make of Anata to Koibito Tsunagi with slight differences. The other will feature a new couple. Planned for the end of June, Hanabira 9 will be drastically different from the rest. I am really looking forward to seeing this new yuri pair.

Anyways, huge thanks to Sellers, AXYPB, hossammilan, enri (who regularly sends me yuri related news), and other commenters. I love reading everyone’s feedbacks, even if they are just about your feelings for something. I always take what you write to heart.

Also, big thanks goes out to you readers. You are a driving motivation behind this blog.

With that said, I will be quite busy over the next few days. I graduated from college today! In a few days, I will be moving to Taiwan and staying there for the next two months. This will be both a stressful yet exciting time for me. With a lot on my mind and a tight schedule, please forgive my shortcomings in writing and responsiveness.

Much love, Yi

*p.s. One last thing, I usually like to allow some time for each of my posts to be on the top of the front page. I especially love my last post on Arakawa and homelessness, but unfortunately, it has not really had that much time to shine. So it would be so awesome if you could visit that post as well.

    Ohhhh!!!! OVAAAA!! XDDDD I CAN’T WAIT!!!

    N a Hanabira 9!!! XD
    Fuguriya sure knows how to make Fans happy!!! (+me) Hope its a good Pair!!! More Yuri!!!

    * n about the Arakawa and homelessness Post, for those who knows how to ply guitars n want the Arakawa ED TAB, I’ve made it myself. The DL link is at my reply on the Post. (http://listlessink.wordpress.com/2010/05/19/the-homeless-in-arakawa-under-the-bridge/#comment-5502)

    Arakawa is my 1st time making TABs, so i’ll give this link solely/exclusively to Listless Ink, no other Sites else. (except my Facebook profile)

    • Yi says:

      @Shinra: Hanabira 9 sounds really awesome. I hope it’s a good yuri pair too!
      I wonder what kind of a couple they will be.
      Again, thanks for the TABs! I really don’t want you to limit promoting your work online, so I wouldn’t mind at all if you wanted to share them outside of here. ^ ^
      They’re really nice.
      I will, of course, link it again in an eventual post. Love Arakawa’s music.

  3. Oh my… well, there’s not much to say aside from the fact that I’ll be watching this. Hope we’ll be in for a solid group of characters that’ll get a good amount of development.

    • Yi says:

      @zzeroparticle: Hehe… Don’t expect too much in terms of story, characters, development, or anything else. It’s not going to have depth or any sort of literary value.
      I’m excited only because Hanabira has a soft spot in my heart.
      I would only recommend it to those into yuri genre though.

    omg! i hope it will be release soon! *dying to see it*….

  6. Guy says:

    An OVA sounds good, visual novels are not exactly my favourite medium, and an OVA sounds good.

    BTW, where are the yuri PG13 series, where the sex happens off-screen? I think their lack is quite telling… of something.

    • Swordwind says:

      There are a lot of those. Of course, the quality of the majority of them are open to debate.

      On the other hand, Shoujo Sect/Innocent Lovers (and OVA) & Hen’s OVA are the only other 18+ yuri animation of any kind, to the best of my knowledge. And Hen really isn’t all that yuri.

      • Yi says:

        @Guy: I would suggest looking into Strawberry Panic for a PG13 yuri series. If you’re interested in yuri manga, then there are even more (one-shots, series…etc.).
        I also always kind of assumed the girls in Marimite are having sex off-screen, but that may just be me.

        @Swordwind: Off the top of my head, Strawberry Panic fits the bill the best. 18+ pure yuri is actually kind of rare. There seems to always be a man, a trap, or a futa mixed in most “yuri” OVA.

        • Swordwind says:

          Mmhmm. Yamibou & Kannazuki No Miko has the 13+ thing going on too, but both of those are bad. Yamibou’s the better, if I’d have to choose. Steel Angel Kurumi too, but it was so unremarkable I don’t remember it in the slightest.

        • Yi says:

          @Swordwind: Oh yea, I totally forgot about those. Yamibou… was decent for me. The character animation style looks a little off for me, and the ending is more than questionable. Kannazuki is great though (except for the mecha crap going on). I actually have not seen Steel Angel Kurumi, so will have to check that out.

        • Swordwind says:

          For both Yamibou & Miko, the main plot was inane and terrible. The Yuri parts, however, were well done. Which is depressing.

          It’d be the 2nd season & 3rd season of steel angel, I think the first one was more het.

        • Yi says:

          @Swordwind: Thanks for the suggestion!

  7. Smithy says:

    Doesn’t especially have to be 18+ for me but definitely am looking forward to the anime! ^^

    • Yi says:

      @Smithy: I might actually have preferred a normal anime rather than 18+. I think it would then force the characters to have more depth. I’m not complaining though.

  8. Fabrice says:

    Mhmm you like yuri hey..
    it seems alright to me, not favorite genre.
    anyway will look into the anime ^^ if it comes out.

    • Yi says:

      @Fabrice: I would actually recommend against this for you despite my excitement. Adult anime are always much more polarizing than regular anime, and if you are not into the genre, you might not want to waste your time.

  9. Shin says:

    I hate yurishit, but Peco is god.

    _______________________________________________________

    99% of bears have turned to rap music. If you are part of the 1% that is still listening to rock, put this in your sig.

    • Swordwind says:

      Regarding your sig, I was unaware that rap music was so prevalent among bears. Interesting.

      Also, how long have you considered yourself a bear?

    • Yi says:

      @Shin: Peko is god! He even got me to watch Mayoi Neko and I rather hate harem genre.

  10. Swordwind says:

    Congrats on your graduation. Do you know what you’ll be doing after those two months? I’m sure you will have fun, regardless.

    It seems that my punishment for being jovial is getting a quote that makes me seem like a hick from Hillbillyland, Backwater county. How lamentable.

    • Yi says:

      @Swordwind: Thank you so much for the congrats!
      Anyways, I’m in Taiwan to visit my family, relax, as well as take care of some serious personal stuff.

      Sorry about the quotation. If it makes you feel better, I have quoted further to give it some context, so that people know you don’t usually write like a hillbilly.

  11. Nopy says:

    I’ve never heard of the Hanabira series, but it looks good. I just recently started getting into yuri, and this looks like it might help me ease into the genre more :)

    Congrats on graduation, and have fun in Taiwan.

    • Yi says:

      @Nopy: Hanabira a series of visual novels that focus on pure yuri relationships. Anyways, if you are just getting into yuri, this may be a bit more adult than what you’re looking for. Though if you are looking for something more sexual, I think this has a very good balance.

      Thanks for the congrats, and I hope I’ll enjoy my time too. ^ ^

  12. 10sigh_baka says:

    Congratulations on your graduation! And have fun in Taiwan~

    Anyway I believe the OVA is going on sale as of July 30, according to this source: http://www.getchu.com/soft.phtml?id=683983&gc=gc

    • Yi says:

      @10sigh_baka: Thank you so much for the information and the link. I’ve updated the post to include them. ^ ^
      Also, thanks for the kind words!

  15. hossammilan says:

    “Hanabira 9 will be drastically different from the rest. I am really looking forward to seeing this new yuri pair.”
    Hmm… Drastically different… maybe the couples will not be school girls like the previous games , that would be interesting. BUT Please don’t even think about involving MEN, or it will be drastically Disastrous.

    • Yi says:

      @hossammilan: Yep yep, I am all for a fresh take on Hanabira as long as they keep penises out. We’ll see though in several weeks.

    • AXYPB says:

      Fuguriya prides themselves on not including anything like that. Even in the second and fourth games at least, male characters exist and have lines but they’re never seen or heard. Their refusal to let anything get in the way is the major reason I follow them and it’s extremely unlikely they’ll start now.

      • Yi says:

        @AXYPB: I’m fairly positive that this will still be yuri, but Fuguriya has been involved in hetero visual novels. Still, the Hanabira series has been really strict, which is good. ^ ^

        • AXYPB says:

          They use a different name for non-yuri productions as stated in their FAQ. If this was to change, I would hope we would hear long before it becomes a fact.

        • Swordwind says:

          Axy’s pretty correct. They’ve always, consistently stated they intend to keep Hanabira as it is. Of course, they could always change if they wanted, but I don’t that happening without a significant change. Their business plan seems to be pretty successful right now.

        • Yi says:

          @AXYPB + Swordwind: Thanks for that information. That puts me at ease. ^ ^

  16. biotoxic says:

    Awesome news, both on graduating & Hanabira OVA.

    I remember the announcement of an anime, but I wasn’t expecting it to be adult. Should be interesting.

  17. AXYPB says:

    I hope the next couple is an adult pair. “Drastically different” can only mean that the characters are not in high school.

    • Swordwind says:

      Actually, they’re probably just planning on changing the color of the textbox to…RAINBOW! MY GOD!

      We’ll see.

    • Yi says:

      @AXYPB: That would certainly be really nice. ^ ^
      It’d be nice to get away from the school.

      @Swordwind: Yea… I don’t know to what extent the differences will be. It might end up being on something relatively insignificant.
      Just a few more months and we’ll know.

      • AXYPB says:

        The new couples are already different enough by virtue of age differences and nationality. I would think that a couple different from them would be either adults or junior high schoolers.

  18. Mihabel says:

    OMG!!! only two months left then :D

    Now lets hope someone get it subbed fast :>

    Cant wait for it *_*…

  19. Ningyo says:

    I see some areola! Naughty naughty!

    …Then I scrolled down and saw a breast in full, so I really should just shut up. Though, I like Hanabira’s visual style, so it doesn’t seem unsavory in any way. No complaints here, and will check it out when it comes around; glad that it’s 18+, because it won’t seem half-assed and only for the sake of titillation (among other reasons).

    More importantly, grats! On graduating. Leaving the academy, Yi sets foot into the world to blaze a legacy…
    I fear as much as I look forward to the time when I’ll need to leave the securities of school and do the same >.<, so power and fortune to ya.

    • Yi says:

      @Ningyo: Haha. What would this blog be without some occasional, out-of-place yuri ecchi.

      I remember someone wrote this of my blog:
      “Gosh, Listless Ink is a blog I’d probably enjoy reading a lot but it’s got so many HUGE ecchi pictures in random posts that I can’t read it <_<"
      -Aorii.

      Anyways, thanks for the congrats!
      I'm taking a year off before entering medical school, so not completely done with school yet, but the feeling is nevertheless similar. A bit anxious, very nervous, but really excited!
      Good luck with school and have a great summer. ^ ^

  20. enri says:

    Congrats on your graduation!
    I have a birthday on 29th of july, so i concider the release of the anime on 30th as my present, teehee…
    + me too wanna go to Taiwan for 2 months.. :(

  21. softz says:

    It seems to me that this is another girl-girl relationship, huh. But more importantly, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your graduation. BRAVO!

  22. Xine says:

    Congratulations Yi!

    Yuri is not a genre that I would normally watch but I enjoy reading your posts. Hanabira characters look really pretty. Have a great time in Taiwan. ^^

    • Yi says:

      @Xine: Thanks. It’s an exciting time for me. ^ ^
      Anyways, if yuri is not your thing, then I’d suggest staying away from Hanabira.

  23. Mira says:

    I am highly anticipating this OVA, I hope it satisfies and caters to every Hanabira/Yuri fan. If ChuChu’s yuri brand A1C receives popularity – I’m sure they’ll consider more girl-girl projects in the future

    • AXYPB says:

      Hopefully they’ll start with Kaede and Sara.

      • Swordwind says:

        And then we can see more of Kaede without the glasses and braid combination. I like her better with her hair down – she acts more assertive.

        • AXYPB says:

          Have you read their second light novel?

        • Swordwind says:

          I can’t say I “read” it in good faith – translating seemed like to much work for me. I did look at the pictures, and liked Kaede & Sara’s dress-up. Thank you for your consideration, regardless.

        • KeiichiMamoru says:

          where did you guys get the 2nd light novel of Kaede and Sara?

          @topic : oh 2 great news at the same time, OVA releases on July 30th? I can’t wait for the OVA and the 9th Hanabira.

          By the way, congratulations on graduating, Yi.

        • Swordwind says:

          http://www.mediafire.com/?iti0btmdtmc

          Sorry for the late reply; putting up mirrors on MediaFire is slower than I would like.

        • KeiichiMamoru says:

          @Swordwind – thank you very much.

      • Yi says:

        @KeiichiMamoru: Thanks for the congrats. I’m very excited for Hanabira 9 too as well as for the anime.

        @Swordwind: Thanks a lot! I think I actually don’t have this light novel at all, so thanks. ^ ^

    • Yi says:

      @Mira: I hope this turns out well too and that more will come in the future.

      @AXYPB: I actually would like to see the latest pairs more, but I’d be happy with any other Hanabira anime.

  25. Tsukimori says:

    Congrats on the graduating.

    Anyway, according to Bonku, at the end of one of the Hanabira doujin light novel things, Fuguriya discussed Hana9, but it was pure speculation.

    He said he would like to make it about Runa’s sister.. or perhaps involve her, but I don’t see how that would work. She might be in college, but St. Michael’s college? Weird. Unless it takes place in her high school days, but that wouldn’t work. And they can’t mess with Takako x Runa.

    …That’s just pure speculation, though. Hopefully this “drastic difference,” will be wonderful. I would hate it if it were based on Runa’s sister.. I didn’t really get a good impression of her while playing through 7.

    • Yi says:

      @Tsukimori: That would certainly be interesting. Thanks for that little bit of speculation though. ^ ^
      Anyways, I kind of liked Runa’s sister, but I think I’d prefer a fresh pair as well.

      Also, thank you for the congrats!

  26. Zemial99 says:

    Ah, Congratulations Yi! You Graduated! *Thumbs up*

    Anyway, Now I’m really gonna see the Sono Hanabira OVA when it comes out (subtitled that is). I cant wait! xD

  27. GreenApp says:

    Woa, thank you Yi and everyone for this extreamely exciting News. I’m really looking forward to the OVA and Hanabira 9 Couple. This summer gonna be HOT.
    That’s all I can say.

  28. ecchiman says:

    Ecchi Man approves of this news. Happy happy joy joy!

  29. Dragon of Hourai says:

    1.Honestly ur the best XD your my only source for Hanabira that and Gratz on finishing college i envy you. also i here your working with Tsundere translations are you helping translate Hanabira 3?

    2. im excited to here about a hanabira 9 (wow fugy is fast!! 8 came out not to long ago XD) and a remake of Hanabira 3!? pluse those new pics of the Hanabira 3 anime ack! to much good news to process i think in need to lay down for a bit XD

    • Yi says:

      @Dragon of Hourai: Aww… you flatter me. ^ ^
      I do work with Tsundere Translations, but right now I’m just helping with Candy Boy manga.
      Anyways, Fuguriya has been quite productive lately, which is a great thing for us fans. ^ ^

  30. Yuki says:

    I can’t wait for it to release~ I’m quite curious to who are going to be the voice actors. If Kugimiya Rie gets Reo though… I would not be as surprised, if EVER. xD! They rarely hire popular seiyuus for Adult OVAs but but, it’s free to dream right? xD!

    And I can’t wait for the new couple too~ I’m so loving every couple so far. XD!

    • Yi says:

      @Yuki: I would so love Kugimiya Rie!! Is there any other seiyuu as experiences as her in doing tsundere lolis?

    • AXYPB says:

      I will be surprised if the original voices aren’t kept here. I don’t know if it’s regular practice to use different actors for anime adaptations from games, but I can’t imagine anyone else playing any characters from this series.

      • Yi says:

        @AXYPB: I have no idea the usual practice for voice actresses either. Well, as long as it fits the character, I don’t mind who does it.

        • Tsukimori says:

          Usually for adult adaptations, the VN seiyuu are kept.

        • Yi says:

          @Tsukimori: That’s good to know. ^ ^

        • AXYPB says:

          It is. Call me a purist, but I would not be as excited as I am if it was announced that different voices were used here. No such announcements were made, so I think the voice work is already finished.

        • Yi says:

          @AXYPB: I have to confess. I can never really tell apart voice actresses as long as they sound rather reasonably similar. Still, it’s good to know and safe to assume that Reo and Mai will still be Reo and Mai.

  32. FT says:

    Well… I’m just starting to enjoy yuri fully..I played all Hanabira VNs until now and let’s hope for a great yuri pair in the next one too…I think the OVA will lose some of the game’s art quality :(
    On another note:I thought Mayoi looked a lot like moving CGs rather than normal anime…and that the characters were somehow similar…but I would have never guessed that Peko did the art for it too(now it adds up)…and for another one I plan to play: Touji no Sato(or something similar)

    • Yi says:

      @FT: Peko’s CGs have this really pretty glossy look to them, so to animate that completely in every frame would be kind of hard. Still, the anime will be done by the same people who did Strawberry Panic, so I’m not too concerned about art quality.
      Mayoi Neko… has very inconsistent art now that it’s switched directors. Peko did the illustrations for the light novel, but as per usual for anime adaptations, the original artist does not have full control over the animation. Still, I think Peko’s characters and art does show through a bit. Love him!
      I haven’t heard of Touji no Sato, but it looks decent. Enjoy. ^ ^

      Anyways, thanks for visiting. I’m always super happy to see a fellow yuri fan’s comments.

  33. AXYPB says:

    I did some research and I found that the OVA is #1 on the most preordered anime list on Getchu. I didn’t realize this was so popular.

    • Yi says:

      @AXYPB: Wow, I’m actually a bit surprised. Good job Fuguriya!

      Thanks for the research, AXYPB! ^ ^

      • AXYPB says:

        In the weekly list for overall orders, only the DVD and Blu-Ray editions of Evangelion version 2.22 topped it. Since that was released, the OVA is above even the upcoming Blu-Ray volumes of Angel Beats and Bakemonogatari in preorders, which I understand are somewhat more worthy.

        Speaking of that, do we even have any idea how long it will be? If they’re charging full price for it, I would expect up to 90 minutes.

        • Yi says:

          @AXYPB: Beating Bakemonogatari and Angel Beats! That’s quite an achievement.
          Anyways, the length is a good question. I had always assumed that it’d be a single episode OVA, so either 30 or 45 minutes… But that’s completely unfounded and I hope it’s longer. We’ll see June 30th.

        • AXYPB says:

          Not to mention that it ranked just under Evangelion. Considering how popular that is, scoring next to it also speaks volumes of its anticipation.

          Also, someone else is independently subbing the YouTube series.

        • Swordwind says:

          Axy, you got your shit together, mate. Thanks

        • Yi says:

          @AXYPB: Shingx is subbing the web series… I’m not very interested in that though. Will wait for some real animation.

  34. AXYPB says:

    chuchu’s website opened up yesterday. At the moment it’s only half-functional and doesn’t have anything we haven’t already seen, but I’ll keep track of it for any kind of promotional video or stills.

    • AXYPB says:

      A development: The website states that the runtime is 23 minutes. I wonder if that’s per episode or the entire OVA, because that seems a little lean for all of the buildup over the months.

  35. Yi says:

    @AXYPB: I wonder how many episodes it is. I suspect that only 1 episode will be released on the 31st and it’d be 23 min. More might come in the future though. I’m not really basing that on anything other than experience with other OVA releases (Shoujo Sect).

    Thanks for being so on top of this. ^ ^

  36. wahaha says:

    Hmm, based on the extra (basically made up of the Fuguriya staff discussing the game and ideas for future games) of the Erisu/Shizuku light novel that was recently translated, I’m thinking that Hanabira 9 may be a harem type scenario starring Runa’s sister (and probably high school-aged Takako). Which is indeed, different, for a Hanabira at least. Maybe not drastically, actually makes it sound more like a typical eroge.

    • AXYPB says:

      That was only speculation. It may not even figure into the final product in any form. It wouldn’t make much sense for a single character to be featured twice at different times. It’s different, but I get the feeling that the new pair are new characters.

    • Yi says:

      @wahaha: That would certainly be a drastically different approach albeit still within the bounds of Hanabira. It’s something I wouldn’t mind seeing either.

      @AXYPB: I want to point out though that all the older characters have a second visual novel. I actually could see Runa’s sister being in Hanabira 9. Still, all this is just speculation. Can’t wait!

      • AXYPB says:

        Now that I think about it, it wouldn’t make sense to me for Runa’s sister to be in the ninth game. She has never been referred to by name and it would make some of the seventh game and the net series sound awkward if she is now. It makes sense that Runa didn’t, but if Takako’s relation to her is as close as the rest of them, it would sound strange if she was revealed to actually have a name that Takako never said out loud.

          @AXYPB: True true! We’ll see soon. Either way though, I wouldn’t mind a more harem-y storyline this time. One thing that Hanabira has been missing has been conflict. Unlike other visual novels, the romance has always been very linear and the pairing set from the beginning. I would like to see either a girl having to make a choice or a harem type “pairing.”

        • AXYPB says:

          I’d rather not.

    I’ve ordered the DVD along with the first print drama CD that comes with it. I’ll get to uploading it when it arrives :3

    In case you want to see, the Getchu page was updated with the final cover art. And it’s still #1 in preorders.

    Oh, and one more thing to get ready for the Hanabira anime (if you’s seen this already): The Trailer: http://www.a1c.jp/~chuchu/lineup/koibitomov.html# (If your computer supports Quicktime video players of course)

    • AXYPB says:

      It pains me to watch this because we’ll have to wait many more years to see other pairs this fluidly animated.

    • Yi says:

      @Zemial99: What a coincidence! I got a twitter message just a few hours earlier about this trailer.

      Making a new post soon. Thanks for the info!

      @AXYPB: Glass is half empty. ^ ^
      I do see your point though. I think the last time I saw something of this quality was Shoujo Sect and that was way too long ago.

    Just wondering, was Hanabira 9 supposed to be released end of June, or was the couple supposed to be revealed in June? I’m dying to get some news on the new game and its “drastic differences.”

  45. Selli says:

    The 9th pairing is supposed to be different from the rest. Well, they already did the teacher and student pairing, they have an older pairing, the next pairing I think might be a 3-girl pairing. That would be much different and rather interesting for sure. Just my two cents. ^.^”

    • Yi says:

      @Selli: That was my first guess too. Anyways, there has not been any more news so far, so I’m beginning to doubt my sources. It may end up being just a rumor.

      • Selli says:

        Well if they follow the pattern they already set; three different pairs of girls, two games per pair, then they need another pair and a new game for all three pairings. XD And if it is a three-girl pairing, then it might take longer to draw…

        And they have those three chibi girls all over their site (Misaki Shitara, Rin Aso, and Aoi Otsuki) are they ever going to get their own game? I have a feeling that they will and since they ineract on those little blurbs on the site that they might be made into a three-girl pairing…

        • Yi says:

          @Selli: I really want to see the other three girls in something as well. They’re too cute not to be in one.

          “they might be made into a three-girl pairing…”
          That’d be perfect. If it happens, I could die without regrets. j/k

    Here is the Trailer 2 of the anime:

    Voice of Mai is change.I don’t like this voice,the voice in the game is better!

    • Selli says:

      I like this Mai better, the Mai in the novel I found annoying. I like Reo’s voice from the novel better though, she sounds too innocent in the OVA and she is supposed to have that stubborn and slightly nasty side to her.

    • Yi says:

      @Tsuchiya: Thanks for the download! The voice of Mai is different, but I think I can live with it.

      @Selli: I actually really like the original Mai. Her confident, big-sister personality is really endearing. I thought the trailer voice sounds much gentler and created a slightly different image of her.

      • Selli says:

        I like soft voices, that’s probably why I like ‘em so much. XD They’re a lot softer and kinda cute… It also makes them seem a little bit younger…
