A while back, Yuki left a comment asking about the characters in this image. They are Nanami, Yuuna, Sara, Kaede, Mai, and Reo from the first six games. But who are those two up in the corner?
After a bit of browsing through Fuguriya website, I found out that they are Takako and Runa from the web series. It seems that Takako is the usual clumsy moe teacher, while Runa is the young loli student who seems to be the bossy, arrogant, oujo-sama type, a character type that I really really love. I imagine there to be lots of teasing and reversal of authority between the loli and the teacher.
Anyway, on a recent update from Fuguriya, they have announced that a seventh Hanabira game will be released in November (edit: review for the seventh Sono Hanabira is up) featuring this teacher-student pair from the web series with a rewritten scenario.
Thanks to Yuri Downloads for telling me about this preview.
The other announcement is that another pair is due in December (edit: review for the eighth Sono Hanabira is up). Not much information is known so far. The pairing is between a mix exchange student and a Yamato Nadeshiko (“classic ideal woman”). The Yamato Nadeshiko girl looks like Mio, and that is just really cute.
Both of these games will follow the usual rather tame style of Sono Hanabira visual novels. There will be no males, no futas, and no toys.
Fuguriya sure has been busy recently. I think it is rather nice to see some new pairings, so this is simply wonderful. In particular, I am looking forward to seeing Runa. Those character types have always been sort of a favorite of mine… I’ve secretly wanted someone to own, tease, bully and boss me around in my severe M mentality… Just kidding… Ok. That was definitely too much information…
