Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Anata to Koibito Tsunagi Trailer

Sono Hanabira Anata Koibito Tsunagi anime OVA release

With less than two months until the release, the trailer for Anata to Kobito Tsunagi OVA (その花びらにくちづけを – あなたと恋人つなぎ) is now on chuchu’s website.

Since it is only a minute and a half, I thought I would just upload it. Please be warned that this might not be safe for work. Some may even call it p0rnography, but I personally consider it simply artistic expression.

Like @angelx03 and Zemial99 (who both sent me the chuchu link), I was surprised at how well animated this is. I knew it was going to be decent, as the animation team has also worked with Strawberry Panic. However, based on the kind of videos Fuguriya has made in the past, I was convinced the production would cut some corners.

Fortunately, the animation in the trailer looks pristine. Consider the short snapshot of a scene at 0:52. The way the body moves in response to outside pressure is just so detailed and so sensual. It really speaks to how fluid the anime is going to be. Furthermore, Reo and Mai are gorgeous. Peko’s designs have not been butchered and the girls are just as adorable as they are in the visual novel. They do look a bit more slender though, which is a bit reminiscent of the girls of Strawberry Panic. I actually really love that petite touch.

Several scenes from the trailer indicate that the anime is most likely going to follow closely the visual novel, Anata to Koibito Tsunagi (Hanabira 3). The sex acts in the nurse’s office and at Mai’s place correspond to events from the visual novel. Some scenes even remind me of the CGs. I am not sure what I think of this. On the one hand, I appreciate that the anime is canonical to Reo and Mai’s story. On the other, it is always nice to see something new. Of course, there is also the possibility that the anime will include more than the visual novel, or that it will be an alternate retelling, which reveals yet another side to this sweet romance.

If this anime adaptation does well, more will probably come, especially with the rise of yuri in anime in general. According to AXYPB, the pre-order sales for Anata to Koibito Tsunagi on Getchu have beaten out even the upcoming Blu-Ray volumes of Angel Beats! and Bakemonogatari. I am optimistic about more yuri anime in the future from either Fuguriya or chuchu.

    Mhmmm, *looks around…
    Im going to watch this,..hell ye!

  3. Swordwind says:

    I think I’d appreciate new content over repetition. Regardless, it looks, well, gorgeous. Looking forward to this one. Thanks for the post.

    • Yi says:

      @Swordwind: Yea, I think I would’ve liked new content too. However, that’s expecting a bit too much as most people might not have played the visual novel. Further, how Mai and Reo became girlfriends is a really adorable story, and it’d be a terrible waste not use show it.

  4. k1y0 says:

    looking forward to it too!

  5. phro says:

    legit. I am anticipating this the most aha

  6. Mihabel says:

    The animation is exellent and beautiful…..UGH I WANNA SEE IT SO BAD >_<!!!

    Hmm any idea of who is gonna get it subbed?

    Oh and I agree that we need more yuri anime!!

    • Mihabel says:

      Oh and the dvd cover look reaaly nice🙂

    • Yi says:

      @Mihabel: The animation is indeed excellent. It looks on par with regular anime and definitely better than low budget ecchi OVA’s.

      I’m guessing Shingx would probably sub it, but I’m not sure. Some group definitely will though.

      Lastly, agreed about the DVD cover!

  7. Well, hey the music’s pretty nice. I wonder if they’re using the music from the VN for all this since the piano does have that sort of tone that I’ve come to expect from VN music…

    • Yi says:

      @zzeroparticle: The music from the trailer is elegant and romantic. It’s not from the VN though, so I’m guessing the anime will use some tracks not from the VN.

  8. AXYPB says:

    The OVA is 23 minutes long, and this trailer shows about one minute of it. Call me pessimistic, but now I have to wonder how much of the remaining 22 minutes is story if this is to follow the visual novel.

    • Yi says:

      @AXYPB: The visual novel does have a bit of story and a lot of dialogue. I don’t think the OVA will have problem filling 23 minutes. How they do it and what lines are used though is a different matter. Do you prefer more story or ecchi?

      • AXYPB says:

        I follow this series because it struck a good balance. I’m genuinely interested in the story, but obviously the draw here is the ecchi. I’m just curious how it will compress the entire visual novel in a half hour and maintain that balance. Seeing the trailer did nothing to ease my fears there, although it did assure me of its aesthetic quality.

        On a more positive note, I was contacted by kamyu yesterday by e-mail. He informed me that translation will resume soon despite the long wait. There’s hope for my project yet.

        • Yi says:

          @AXYPB: From the trailer, it looks like it might be more ecchi focused. However, it is just the trailer and trailers tend to show only the most exciting parts. So I guess we can’t really tell.

          Good luck on the translation!

        • Swordwind says:

          That’s actually great news.

  9. biotoxic says:

    Looking good. The OVA is proving to be very popular already. I’m looking forward to the release.

    The end of July looks to be promising, what with BRS nendo/figma, Seena swimsuit and Queen’s Blade Vol 2 (R1 DVD). I’m sure I’m forgetting something else good that’s happening…

    • Yi says:

      @biotoxic: Summer is always huge in terms of releases and merchandise. I’m also excited for Strike Witches 2 and I’m looking forward to the figures that are going to be released.

  10. phro says:

    I wonder if the voices are going to be the same as the visual novel ._.

  11. Shinra says:

    Yaaayyy!!!😄 Finally a trailer!! but July 30 is a long wait… and I agree with u Yi, this is not porno but ART. The Graphics does look alittle Low Q than the game version though. At least we got to see the trailer, too bad there is no talking in it… Hope they will make this OVA popular like Strawberry Panic and make more OVAs than just only Hanabira 3. ;D

    *Reo x Mai is AWESOMEEE!!! My fav Yuri couple in all Hanabira series!!! Xd

    BTW, will u be posting the links where to watch or to download when this releases?

    • Yi says:

      @Shinra: The CG from the visual novel tends to have this glossy look and is very very beautiful. It’s a bit unrealistic to expect that look for an entire 23 minutes of the OVA. That said, the animation quality is much higher than your usual low-budget ecchi anime.

      I’m very hopeful that there will be more anime adaptations to Hanabira.

      Also, agreed about Reo x Mai. It’s one of my favorite couples as well!

      Anyways, I think I’ll probably link one or someone might in the comments. *hint *hint. ^ ^

  12. Persocom says:

    ooh, I’ve seen pictures of these two before from game cg. count me in as interested, it does seem quite artistic and tasteful. I’ll be looking forward to this OVA now ^^

    • Yi says:

      @Persocom: Yea, the game CG’s for Hanabira are arguably among the most popular yuri CGs around. Reo and Mai being the most popular pair from the series, their faces are well recognized among many yuri fans. Now they’re getting an OVA, which is really exciting.

      • Swordwind says:

        Actually, I think that the final picture of the first game (Nanami & Yuuna kissing in the street) is probably the most well known. Reo & Mai are most likely the fan favorites (The Hanabira 8 couple is apparently pretty popular, too).

        • Yi says:

          @Swordwind: I forgot about that image.

          Anyways, this what I think what the majority of fans may think about the couples.

          Mai x Reo – tsundere loli + responsible yet a bit dirty minded sister makes a really good pair.
          Erisu x Shizuku – A great pair. Very likely to be fan favorites, but 8 is too new.
          Sara x Kaede – Sara is a very successful character, but I think Kaede misses the mark a bit (at least for me).
          Yuuna x Nanami – The secretly naughty onee-chan x a straight forward, simple minded girl. A classic pairing that would have been a fan favorite if it were not for Yuuna’s somewhat… different fetish. (I don’t mind though)
          Runa x Takako – a favorite for me, but I think the loli factor may have been too much for some. Reo is about right for a loli, and Runa may have pushed the boundaries too much.

        • AXYPB says:

          Kaede reminds me of someone I once knew, so maybe I’m being biased when I say I don’t get why few people like her.

        • Swordwind says:

          I like Mai x Reo quite a bit. For reasons I’ve already stated, I prefer Mai over Reo.

          Erisu x Shizuku are my favorites. I completely agree that they would be at least as popular as Mai x Reo if they were introduced earlier, and I think that they are already pretty close.

          Sara x Kaede are a nice pair. I actually like them both, but one thing irritates me. Kaede’s braid. It pisses me off. I can handle glasses, and I can somewhat tolerate a braid, but the combination is awful. I don’t think that is a legitimate argument for rating a person, couple, or game, however.

          Yuuna x Nanami is…OK. Yuuna always struck me as looking incredibly high in a lot of her character portraits (but not so much in the CGs). Worse, the first story wasn’t as good as any of the others. I don’t think that the scene you mentioned was the only factor.

          Runa & Takako….I’m pretty strictly in the “that’s too loli” camp. Thankfully, Fugi has plenty of alternatives.

          Axy:
          Well, I can’t speak for others, but I actually like Kaede’s personality. I do think that she can be a bit of a pushover, but I have the most trouble, as I mentioned above, with that braid.

          The both of you:
          Upon typing this post, I experienced a revelation. Where is the ponytail girl in this series?

        • Yi says:

          @AXYPB: I guess Kaede is just not my type. I tend to prefer a more stark personality, and to me, she’s a little too passive.

          @Swordwind: Kaede’s glasses annoyed me, but I don’t mind braids. For Yuuna x Nanami, I actually liked the first story, but I may be biased simply because it’s the first of its kind for me. I think it may even be the first pure yuri visual novel ever released.

          Runa… I guess I’m a lolicon.

          Ponytail girl?
          Come to think of it, I was flipping through Peko’s artworks the other day, and I didn’t see a single girl with a ponytail.

        • AXYPB says:

          If Kaede’s personality bothers you, you might like the drama CD “Kaede-chan Super Mode”. She is anything but passive in that, except in the extra track.

        • Yi says:

          @AXYPB: I really should. I’ve received several strong recommendations for that. I’m guessing Kaede really shines in it.

        • Swordwind says:

          I find the lack of a single ponytail disturbing. This is a problem. Fix it, Yi.

          If I liked Ponytails, I could very well be irritated.

          The first game had a coherent story that I’m fine with. It’s relatively lackluster for the series, however.

        • Yi says:

          @Swordwind: It seems ponytails may be going out of style a bit. I have been seeing a lot less of them in anime in general. Peko also seems like he never much had an interest in them.
          That’s too bad…😦 I actually like ponytails.

  13. Mira says:

    !
    Thanks for this, you beat me to it
    A wonderful mood I was to arrive home to see this news ^.^

  14. Johnny says:

    Great trailer !
    I was surprised by the respect of the protagonists’ measurements (Mai’s boobs are bigger than Reo’s, like in the visual novel), for the best (in Shoujo Sect, that i love very much, all girls got big boobs !), and it seems so cute and romantic !

    YURI POWAAA !!!

    PS :
    by the way, i found a trailer of another yuri anime, “Kuttsukiboshi”

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=05A2HJ9D

    I hope it will be hot !!

    • Yi says:

      @Johnny: I like their proportions too. ^ ^

      I haven’t heard of Kuttsukiboshi, so thanks for the trailer. Now I’m excited to see the anime. Is it going to be ecchi or just romance?

  15. Hellomotto says:

    To be honest, I have never heard of the visual novel before. I’ve also never watched exposed, uncensored sex in anime either. However, if it is not pornography and is instead artistic expression–that is, the sensual side of their relationship–then perhaps I will be willing to explore this. The animation does look quite good, though I’ve really never been the best judge at animation quality.

    I guess it’s another anime to add to my list, though it’ll be very interesting to see how it turns out. Thanks for the introduction to the series. =D

    • Hellomotto says:

      Oh, and I just noticed: Are these the two that are chibified and have your RSS feed thing? If so, that’s so cuute! RSS feed chibis, unite!

    • Yi says:

      @Hellomotto: Technically, it’s not uncensored. Anyways, I’m much more about the relationship, and the sex scenes are just a nice bonus. However, I think most people will simply consider it p0rn, and I’m guessing the ecchi will take more than 80% of the emphasis… So explore at your own risk.

      The RSS feed chibis are in fact Reo and Mai! Sharp eyes. ^ ^

  16. 2DT says:

    There’s a certain warmth to the trailer that draws me. Maybe it’s the attention to touch and proximity. Pornography in general is very gymnastic, which certainly looks fun sometimes, but often it misses the simple appeal of bodies in contact, of the “love” in lover. I hope the rest of the OVA lives up to that.

    • Yi says:

      @2DT: I agree. Sometimes a simple shot of a loving couple cuddling does more wonders than the most extreme acrobatic positions. While I don’t mind too much the hardcore stuff, I personally prefer a bit more subtlety.

      Well, based on the visual novel, there shouldn’t be too much toys or kinky stuff, so hopefully the OVA keeps that direction.

  17. FatSpanner says:

    Yuri is the best genre in anime, no questions asked!

  18. FT says:

    more yuri less yaoi…isn’t is great?😀 not that I don’t like yaoi but I’d rather watch 100 hours of yuri anime than 1 hour of yaoi…then again yaoi is ok but yuri is still the best🙂 have to agree with FatSpanner on this :D…it’s quite disappointing to see so many yaoi manga/visual novels and the few yuri ones…it’s still great that there are more yuri anime than yaoi anime :p

    • Yi says:

      @FT: I share your enthusiasm, although I don’t actually mind yaoi that much, especially in manga.
      I think in terms of anime, yuri has gained more popularity in recent years, but in doujins and mangas, I feel that there are more yaoi materials. Still, I usually hang out around yuri, so I might have a skewed view of yuri vs. yaoi distribution.
      Anyways, more yuri is always good. More yaoi is good too. More of any genre of anime is good for all fans.

    Wow……….Just……wow

  20. sora says:

    I’m from Brazil, now I’ve learned a little English, does not go much for my mistakes.
    In Brazil is very difficult to talk with someone about yuri, express what I feel about this visual novel that I find very beautiful, I love ^ ^.

    by video, to me this will be muto beautiful ^ ^ ew.

    • Yi says:

      @sora: “In Brazil is very difficult to talk with someone about yuri”
      I have a hard time talking to people about yuri too in real life and I think I have pretty accepting friends. I don’t know much about Brazil, but I could imagine it being that much harder to express your feelings about yuri. Good luck. ^ ^

      Anyways, the anime should be really good.

  21. xX777Xx says:

    Geez I wish I understand Japanese. So I can help at translating =_____=.

  22. xX777Xx says:

    OMG… I’m having a nosebleed now… This trailer is really good. Can’t wait for the anime😄

  23. sora says:

    July 30, the till which is very close.

    Even though the spawn is not pretending to flee from their origins of visual novel.As characters are very similar to visual novel, I thought the characters would be that skinny or in strawberry, nothing against the art of strawberry! in my opinion is pretty well yuri is the best feature in my opinion, in my opinion!.

    will I soon see that ass! will be epic ^ ^.

    reminder:
    not understand what I said because I am stranger, my English is not very consistent

    • Yi says:

      @sora: I kind of like the slender look though, but yea. The yuri is indeed the best feature!

      Thanks for the comment. ^ ^

  24. SparkyTheGryphon says:

    Okay, I really need to come out of quiet, lurker mode and post, because this is so darn exciting. I gotta say, the last thing I expect from the Hanabira creators was an anime. Hopefully it’s put up on the Internet somewhere real fast after it’s released. Any anime with real obvious yuri in it has my full attention. x3

    And there’s a Hanabira 9 coming up too? Seems like only yesterday that the sixth one was being released. ;P

    • Yi says:

      @SparkyTheGryphon: “Any anime with real obvious yuri in it has my full attention.”
      Yep yep. That’s what I look for every new season. Ecchi yuri is even rarer so that’s even more attention grabbing.

      “And there’s a Hanabira 9 coming up too? Seems like only yesterday that the sixth one was being released. ;P”
      They’ve sure been hard at work.

    • AXYPB says:

      I don’t think we’ll see either the next visual novel or that artbook until after the OVA is released.

      More good news regarding the second translation: p4s replied to my call for help. He tells me that he’ll gather more support for the patch.

    Definitely going to pick this up, I liked the art from the game (though I only mostly saw just the several graphics), and yuri is definitely mah thing in ecchi.

    • Yi says:

      @Panther: Peko is a master. I have always loved his artworks. From Hanabira to Mayoi Neko, Peko’s characters are just so adorable.
      This anime looks great, and yuri ecchi is the best kind of ecchi!

    Finally a Peko work being properly animated…unlike another anime…
    Can’t wait to see this!! good thing we don’t have that long of a wait left!
    I agree Peko is awesome.

    • Yi says:

      @gelosut9: I’m assuming you’re talking about Mayoi Neko. It really is a shame with the director changes, inconsistent animation, and crappy story.

      Peko is still awesome though!

  31. AXYPB says:

    Just for fun, I looked up some more rankings. On DMM.co.jp, the OVA ranks 14th in anime DVD monthly orders as of 21 June. DMM’s anime storefront specializes in 18+ titles, so it has significantly narrower competition. It’s also being sold at a discount there if you’re interested in a physical copy (5283 yen, down from the suggested 7140), but I don’t know the conditions of it.

    • Yi says:

      @AXYPB: The top sales from DMM all seem to be hardcore titles though, so I’m not surprised a rather softcore OVA like Hanabira would not be at the top.

      Thanks for the link! 5283 yen… I never knew DVD prices were this steep. I’ll eventually get this though.

  32. Kairu90 says:

    The animation from the screen caps looks amazing. This have definitely curved my interest to do some more research on the series and the visual novel. I have seen many CG’s floating around various image boards of these characters, but never actually knew who they were.
    Thanks for this post ^^

  33. phossil says:

    Hope they keep the good quality design in the anime. ^^

  34. softz says:

    This seems to be a girl-girl-relationship type of anime. Am I right? But what the heck, I should at least watch an episode of it🙂

    • Yi says:

      @softz: Yep yep. This is a yuri anime. There is only one episode announced so far so it might be nice to just check it out. Do be warned though that this is an 18+ anime.

  35. glothelegend says:

    animation does look good, and I’ll agree that it’s not really pornography, as it was pretty tastefully done and there looked to be several moments of emotion involved. I’m still not going to watch it though, even though I like yuri.

    • FatSpanner says:

      @glothelegend: Lol you are missing the event of a lifetime in yuri history!

    • Yi says:

      @glothelegend: I wouldn’t blame anyone for not wanting to watch this. I don’t expect a deep plot or an enlightening theme. And it’s explicit, which may turn even more people away.

      I’m just always excited to see yuri romance.

  36. Ningyo says:

    “Some may even call it p0rnography, but I personally consider it simply artistic expression.”
    The conundrum that we will forever war with for the rest of time. Oh, how we, all of the same species, can see things so differently… *runs outside to serenade Hanabira*

    Ah, so it’s another one of those minute-long trailers, huh? Well, true that they didn’t call it a *pilot*, but you know I still have a history with those. But yes, that quality does look smashing. Quite the production, so far. I won’t overextend and reckon anything I shouldn’t.
    More like, what happened to that *deep breath* BRS anime?

    Just googled it, July 24th, apparently. Imagine if they were 10 minute-long shorts? HAH!

    • Yi says:

      @Ningyo: “Some may even call it p0rnography, but I personally consider it simply artistic expression.”
      I do believe this, but I also wrote that partly to stay out of trouble. ^ ^

      I still don’t understand why BRS pilot was a pilot while this is a trailer. I guess the difference is that BRS pilot was packaged with cover art, inserts, and such, and actually released, while this is simply a teaser on a website.

      “Imagine if they were 10 minute-long shorts?”
      … And if they only had 6 episodes. Gosh I hope not.

  37. FT says:

    I get the feeling this OVA will be the Evangelion of Yuri Hentai(or maybe Hentai) in terms of popularity😀 I would like to say K-On instead of Eva because of its lighthearted atmosphere but K-On has practically no story whatsoever😀

    • Yi says:

      @FT: Agreed. I think this will exceed its predecessor, Shoujo Sect Innocent Lovers, in terms of popularity, and really raise the bar for yuri ecchi.

      I think K-On! would actually be a more apt analogy. I don’t think Hanabira will have the kind of in depth exploration into serious themes as Evangelion does, nor will it have the same winding plot.
      Like K-On!, this will probably be quite light hearted with a fairly straightforward story.

  38. Tiffy Tran says:

    It comes out on July 30th, but then I’d have to wait for it to be subbed and what not, so basically I would be watching it around August, right? But, still, very excited for this anime. Hopefully they’ll be coming out with more Yuri like this and Shoujo Sect.🙂

    • Yi says:

      @Tiffy Tran: August sounds like a reasonable estimate. Well, months go by in a blink of an eye for me, so it shouldn’t be too long of a wait.

      “Hopefully they’ll be coming out with more Yuri like this and Shoujo Sect.”
      I hope so too. Chuchu seems to be an exclusively yuri production, and it’s unlikely they’ll create a brand for a single OVA. So it’s very likely that more will come in the future.

  39. hisui19 says:

    i wanted to ask, where’s the 6th installment of hanabira? can’t seem to find it here…

  40. Nopy says:

    That trailer was far better than what I thought it would be. I usually don’t watch yuri (the only one I’ve seen is Shoujo Sect), but now I really have to see this.

  41. Judei says:

    There are many people who love yuri anime in the world.
    I am very glad because I am Jpanese.

  42. UnchainedMelody says:

    Given the mention of Strawbetty Panic I was expecting character designs that not only deviated from Peko’s artwork but also made my eye twitch just watching it. Granted even moments in the VNs make my eye twitch with small problems here and there but! Getting back to my point, with this trailer I was suprised by not only how they look but as how well the animation seems to be done. I claim to be no expert but it was nice to see something clean, well done and true to the VNs.

    It would be fun to have the same voice actors but I’ll be happy if they manage to grab the essence of each character.

    The waiting is a pain though! >_< A month feels like an age and even worse is when you have to go back to Uni when it'll be translated and all that, but atleast it'll be nice to get some form of anime on my list of things to do again.

    I must also add: *squee* Reo is -too- cute!😛

    • Yi says:

      @UnchainedMelody: I agree that the animation does deviate from Peco’s works, but I think they’ve kept the characters true enough that those two are easily recognizable as Reo and Mai. Further, as animations, I do not expect the same quality as CG’s, and relative to other ecchi OVA around, I thought this looked great. I also think that the character style done by Strawberry Panic people is a great replacement for Peco’s designs.

      I’m not too worried about the speed of the subs. There are several fansub groups that are really very fast on these things. Still, end of July does seem like forever.

      “I must also add: *squee* Reo is -too- cute! :P”
      Yep yep. ^ ^

      That’s a shame. Reo doesn’t sound bad, but Mai sounds pretty different. Not bad, but different.

      Good trailer though.

      @AXYPB: Thanks for the link! The voices do sound different from the original. I wonder why though?

      @Verdure: Agreed. I can live with these voices.

      • AXYPB says:

        I was discussing this with a friend and he reminded me that it’s not uncommon for anime adaptations of visual novels to not match the original voices. He theorizes that these new voices are actually for the ninth novel and that the new pair is so different that the voices need to be tested first with this OVA. I don’t know about that, but the best reason I can come up with is that the studio wanted voices who were more experienced with animation as opposed to visual novels, even at the cost of faithfulness to the original work. It would certainly be a fair trade for the “high-quality” label that chuchu advertises themselves. That or the original voices were too busy with the YouTube series to record this one.

        At any rate, I can get used to them. If anything, we should be grateful that they’re at the same level as the originals. At least the animation is as top-notch as ever, right? Whatever the reason is, I’m looking forward to the next update on Fuguriya’s site that will definitely explain that, the delays, and why they haven’t posted anything about these developments in months.

        • Yi says:

          @AXYPB: I agree with the first part, but I also think it might be a bit of a stretch to guess that they’re testing out voices for the new pair. On the other hand, it’s possible that the seiyuus from the visual novel are too busy with the Mai and Reo diaries. Or perhaps chuchu just has a separate list of seiyuus they prefer from Fuguriya.

          I found it weird that Fuguriya’s site seems to have just kind of stopped since the update about Peco’s illustrations. They haven’t even mentioned the anime at all. On the other hand, the anime seems to be more in the hands of A1c/ chuchu than Fuguriya. Well, maybe more updates will come later; hopefully one about Hanabira 9.

    Yeah, it’s a little sad it’s not the same seiyuus (even though i’ve been expected for it).
    However, it’s always cute and ecchi !
    OMG ! D-22 !!
