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.
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.
… 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. ^ ^
