With yet another release by Fuguriya, I thought I should do a quick short post on more Sono Hanabira stuff. An artbook by Peko featuring the stunning artworks associated with this series has been announced. It is planned for release on July 30th, the same day the exciting OVA will be released.
Fuguriya sure has been hard at work this summer!
Personally, this announcement actually makes me even more excited than the release of the anime. Artbooks have always been one of my favorite way to show support for the anime industry, and Peko’s gorgeous illustrations makes this an easy purchase. Further, priced at 1400 yen, it is really cheap for a 68-page full colored book. Though I really hope the artbook will have some original illustrations not seen before in the games or on the website.
A funs side note. As AXYPB pointed out, in one of the preview images, Runa (blonde, second from the right) apparently has larger breasts than Reo (farthest right). This is particularly interesting especially because the seventh Hanabira with Runa has been one of the more controversial and less popular of the games. Many have thought that Runa is just too loli. On the other hand, though less endowed, Reo does not suffer from this lash back to pedophilia. She has really enjoyed her role in arguably the most successful yuri visual novel ever. Quite ironic indeed.
Perhaps the age difference in the romance between Runa and her sensei plays a role.

With my brother going to medical school and my sister and parents staying in Taiwan, I am left alone at home in California with so many bills to catch up on and so many errands to run. I will not be able to post as long and often as I would like for the next few weeks, nor will I be able to respond quickly.
