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.
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:
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.”
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.
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.”
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.
