Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo | A Kiss for the Petals Series

Updates – Due to my inability to continue managing this page, I will not be updating this page anymore. Comments will be kept open, but I will not likely be addressing them.

Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo (その花びらにくちづけを) began as a simple yuri visual novel that features a really light yuri story. It emphasized the soft romance between two girls and quickly became one of a kind in a world dominated by fetishist and heavy materials. It was also one of the firslonging t ecchi visual novel that features purely yuri relationships. Because of its uniqueness, it soon gained widespread popularity not only within the niche, but among many anime fans.

Following the success of the first game, Sono Hanabira quickly expanded into a series of games that all cater to the sweet fluffy side in us. Since its humble beginning, the visual novel series has also prompted several associated artworks, light novels, drama CDs, an artbook, and even an anime adaptation.

Impeccably complemented by Peko’s gorgeous artwork, Sono Hanabira is definitely one of the most adorable things I have ever seen.

  1. it looks like EOX is back up again. so if you want to buy Musicbox of Memories or comiket chapters, i suggest you guys do it now before they shut down again.

  2. Stockings-kun says:

    Do you guys play the game even if its not translated?

  3. learned that EOX is no longer translating Sono Hanabira Light Novels. they are now only translating bonus stories from Comiket….
    well, back to fan translation i guess…

    • Yi says:

      I’m curious. Is there a fansub group for the light novels? I know some individuals have been doing them very well before, but not sure if they are still.

  4. any news about Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Lily Platinum english translation?

  5. unknown :D says:

    iv seen videos of the translated version on hanabira maidens on yuri project website. how come they havnt released a download yet.

  6. Erisa-chan says:

    A Question: I really like the endings of the games, well so I’m asking if someone has ’em uploaded or zipped somewhere. I really want to listen to ’em everywhere T^T

  7. Danny says:

    Are there any translations for “summer for the two of us”? I haven’t been able to find any translations anywhere.

  8. where never gonna see those pathes

    • Yi says:

      Maybe. But maybe if we just wait a little longer—and it doesn’t even have to be an act; you just have to sit around and do whatever you normally do—the patches will come.

  9. I’m so excited for the newest Sono Hana patch! I wanna play bad!

  10. anybody know route for hanabira 13?

  11. Superfly says:

    Apparently the VA for the new girls is confirmed, unfortunately no voice samples yet

    Rikka is 緑川円 (Midorikawa Maru?).
    Sayuki is 咲智ゆん (Sachi Yun?).

    Sayuki VA is a rookie apparently in contrast of Rikka’s who has done things like CLANNAD and Little Busters

    Source: some kind anon in /u/

  12. I’m curious as to whether anybody is going to do Hanahira yet. It’s adorable and I wanna play.
    And I said I was excited for the newest patch. Which means to me at least that it’s not out yet. The anticipation is exciting!

    • i think there was a guy who was working on it… but i think he dropped the project. what a shame.

      • That is a damn shame. But I don’t blame him. I’m currently translating something right now too and it’s a pain in the arse. So for those who keep nagging for the damn patch for 9 need to work on the patience. It’s harder than you think, trust me. And I used to be one of the naggers. :P. So, be patient, Sono Hanabira is worth it.

  13. coldenic says:

    a fan art made ​​by Peco, Hajime Kunihiro from “Saki” … is very similar to the characterization of Rikka … right? O.O

    • Yi says:

      They have very similar looks and designs, but I think personality-wise, there are some stark differences. Notably, Hajime Kunihiro, if I remember right, has a darker streak.

  14. AXYPB says:

    A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight has been delayed to 20 December 2013. A demo will be released on 22 November.

    In addition, countdown voices will be published two weeks prior to the new release date and a new mini-drama will launch on 15 November.

  15. seno natsuro says:

    i dont know why there isn’t any new patch released yet !
    i asked before and someone told me there is one in ( 15/10 ) and we r now in 8/11 and i didnt see any news
    there is a lot of new hanabiras coming .. if the translate of one game gonna take about 2 years .. so the translate of the other games will be come in 2018 or after 9 years :((
    come on guys 😦

    • ShizukuErisuFan says:

      Translating stuff is not as easy as you think it would be, same goes to scripting and patching works. The fan-translation groups are trying their best in providing you the translated game, so just wait for them to be done.

    • if they could have release it sooner, i’m sure they would have done. translation takes long time, not to mention that they are fan translators who has lives outside translation projects.

    • Yi says:

      @seno natsuro: Rushing them really doesn’t help. If you have nothing to contribute to the translation, then please just be patient. If you think you can do a faster job, then do it. The fan community will be highly grateful. Otherwise, your impatience comes off a bit like selfish whining.

    • anabona32 says:

      Patience my dear…Patience is the best skill of a good warrior.

  16. Superfly says:

    Anybody have an alternate link to DL the audio-made visual of Suki Suki Mai-san?
    cause it looks like Fileserve is in permanent maintenance

  17. Yurizuki says:

    When I was extracting “Our Campus Life” drama CD, I got a wrong password notice on part 8 of the whole mp3. It’s just me or anybody here got the same problem?

  18. AXYPB says:

    Yurin Yurin released the first episode of the mini-drama series A Kiss For The Petals – Rikka-Sayuki Theater (その花びらにくちづけを 夏雪劇場 Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Natsuyuki Gekijou) on 15 November 2013. Like Risa-Miya Theater and Chiaki-Ringo Theater before it, it will be 10 episodes long and formatted after the visual novel it is promoting.

    There is a double meaning to the Japanese title. The word 夏雪 natsuyuki is comprised of the second characters in Rikka and Sayuki’s names written as kanji, 六夏 and 沙雪. However, the Japanese name for the previous mini-drama, Chiaki-Ringo Theater, used the first components of each character’s name, not the ends. Read literally, natsuyuki means “summer snow”, which alludes to the themes of the visual novel Snow White’s Knight. An alternate name for this series could therefore be “Summer Snow Theater”, but I’ve elected to follow the pattern set by the previous mini-drama series.

    • listening to those two reminds me of someone from previous games. but i can’t quite pin onto who they reminds me of… is it just me? maybe that’s because i don’t understand japanese well.
      the voices fits the characters nicely! i’m looking forward to the full game 🙂

      • anabona32 says:

        I’m back!
        Well I actually liked a lot of the voices…Mainly the blue-haired girl!
        It sounded funny (I like it!)
        and very diferent to the others ones to me in a good way.

    • Yi says:

      Haha I like the seasonal contrast between the two characters! Clever puns get me~

      Anyways, thanks for uploading them to Youtube, and I’ve linked the playlist.

  19. Marking says:

    For those who like to buy their visual novels to support developers, but didn’t want to go through the hassle of buying physical copies or paying more for them, Gyutto is an option for buying digital version of visual novels, including the SonoHana series. As of November 15th, it is now possible to buy them overseas again using a credit card. Don’t know how? You can click here for the details!

    If you’re only interested in buying SonoHana visual novels, you can click here for ones made by Yurin Yurin and click here for ones made by Fuguriya. Note that VNs from will NOT work in a Mac and/or Linux system via Wine. You’ll need to use virtualization software along with a copy of Windows 7.

    • Yi says:

      Oh wow, that is a really nice guide, and thanks for the information on how to purchase games. It is incredibly important for the fans to have a route to support Fuguriya, and such informations are necessary. Thanks!

      I’ve linked the guide~

  20. bit of translation update on lily platinum.
    currently, 16 out of 18 chapters has been translated. DeltaCake has been really busy for past few month on the translation 🙂 at this rate, it looks like lily platinum will be fully translated very soon 🙂

  21. I’ve made copies of some English bonus stories.
    Since EOX is keep getting off line, shell I upload them here?

  22. I just wanted to say that I got a request to translate Wrapped In Your Warmth, do any of you know if anyone is doing it already?

  23. Miiku says:

    Thanks for the links but i don’t know why i can’t play it 😥

    • Yi says:

      You have to be a little more specific about your issues. Also, check the faq linked at the bottom of the index. It may address your problem.

  24. rienyan says:

    miya’s priceless reaction when she saw risa hugged by rikka!!!

    • nonbi says:

      I actually felt bad for Miya considering that she lost her cool in front of the others.
      But the Rikka/Sayuki naked apron scene was hilarious.

      • satsunyan says:

        She was actually crying, and panicking, and Risa was like “how do I get out of this situation, omg Miya’s crying” xD

      • anabona32 says:

        I dont fellt bad AT ALL I laughed HARD without any regret…Her reaction was so funny that i almost died alone here. Besides is really refreshing to see a new side of this poker faced lady XD

      • anabona32 says:

        I feel sorry for using this meme here but i laugh…The face and the dialogue said that she was being delicate and was embarrassed while her face said definitely :”That ass” on that image. Then later on when she began to grope…that really do not surprise me one bit XDD
        …I just found odd that in this scene there is an error in the image…
        When the hand position changes a part of the apron disappears in the chest area, i hope that they fix it…There are so little images and they still leave these errors go?It sure sounds laziness or sloppiness here, maybe they were hurrying to finish?Hard to tell since it wasnt the first time and that the debut was delayed :/

        • nonbi says:

          Peko’s got around 100 CGs to complete before his deadline so I completely understand the smaller errors. I’d rather have a delayed release than an incomplete one anytime.

        • anabona32 says:

          Eeh…To be honest…still sounds lazy or incompetence of the suporting staff, especially considering that the game itself has so few pictures :/
          A doctor always has a busy schedule and still do not leave an Operating taken by half because of it. A Job is a Job after all…in the end everyone is busy.

  25. Lily Starflame says:

    Does anyone know where I can watch the Reo x Mai Diaries? They aren’t on Youtube anymore and I tried looking through the comments on the main page but couldn’t find anything. 😦

  26. here are the links to english bonus stories. i had to copy them word by word so if there’s spelling/grammar mistake. i’m sorry.

    • Yi says:

      Lovely! Thank you so so much, empbike dear~♥
      I’ve added it to the index with much gratitude.

      p.s. Is there an easier way to do so without having to manually type them out? It seems like a lot of work on your part.

  27. ShiraYuri says:

    I already downloaded ShiraYuki Trial version and it doesn’t work. I click it and…: Anyone help, please? I downloaded it from three links, and neither works.

  28. Lily Starflame says:

    Oh wow, in Japan both, Kaede and Sara’s, and Takako and Runa’s relationships are completely legal. How…progressive? …un-biased? …sweet? No, none of the words are the one I’m looking for…

    • Yi says:

      I like “progressive.” I actually enjoyed Kaede and Sara’s relationship, but Takako and Runa’s sits a little more uncomfortably with me. It gets into the issue of consent—is Runa actually mature enough to consent?

    • empbike says:

      Bit of correction, Runs and Takako’s relationship is illegal. Age of consent in Japan is 13, and teacher-student relationship is only legal if it is non-sexual.

      • Yi says:

        Not sure what you mean by correction, but yes, national age of consent is 13. However, I don’t think there is any law against teacher-student relationships. More relevant than either of these legal definitions, though, is the ethical dilemma we have here. Runa is presented as a far more precocious child than most, but whether she is that mature for a sexual relationship is the real issue for this fictitious work.

  29. Marking says:

    So I noticed that all of dclives’ “Audio Made Visual” SonoHana projects have been lost due to the file hosting services shutting down. I can’t seem to contact him about these projects, but I did manage to get one of the projects “Suki Suki Mai-san”. While the site already has an audio file along with a script, this MKV file puts the two together and adds a visual to put english subtitles on it.

    You can download the movie here.

    If anyone else have the other “Audio Made Visual’ projects he made for SonoHana, it would be nice to see them again on the Internet since it seems like they’re lost forever.

  30. satsunyan says:

    Dropping by to tell that, after derping around the Shizuku/Eris Drama CD. They’re actually going to get married soon. xD apologize for some translation inconsistencies, but however I’m pretty sure about 90% of it. xD

    • w-w-wait, what? O_O
      wait, hold on a sec.-
      looks like i missed a lot of things here O_O

    • Yi says:

      Wow, that’s an unconventional timing, but I guess when you know, you know. Good for them!

    • anabona32 says:

      I did see that coming…My only surprise was that Mai did not ask formally before.
      Well who knows?Maybe they are the next to make it?I hope so!XD

      Besides i am curious about one thing: MaI’s family seems to be completely familiar with Reo but little is known about her mother knew about something…anything going on.

      I wonder how would her reaction…I’d love to see some little drama about this issue for once.
      I like how everything is fresh cute and natural but the fact that everyone always being in accordance is a bit boring and sometimes disappointing….I’d love to see a little more drama in this issue just for once :/
      (But as long as they can stay together in the end of course…XD)

  31. Nicki says:

    I always get this error. how do i install the vn?

  32. Vampire(G)Girl says:

    Why must people take something beautiful and ruin it, if you played the game then you’ll see that Runa is the one going after Takako. So why must you make some big deal over consent when she doesn’t evens need it!

    • Yi says:

      1. If by ruining it, you mean thinking and engaging in fiction, then I suppose I am ruining it.
      2. If the work can’t stand up to scrutiny and discussion, then it isn’t so beautiful or deserving.
      3. In the context of this particular work, underage sex is the biggest deal. It is, after all, the entire premise of their relationship.
      4. Consent is not such a simple thing as “someone going after the other”, especially when children are involved. Consider this analogy: a child is enticed with candy for sexual favors and agrees. That does not constitute consent. Now, if we vary that a little. The same child is enticed with a need for a motherly figure, and is willing to provide sexual favors to whichever adult can provide her with that emotional support. We see that her supposed consent is perhaps not a true consent. (As an aside, that Takako does not even acknowledge this possibility makes her very deplorable.)

      The argument can be made that Runa is mature enough to differentiate between what type of relationship she wants or needs. I don’t think she is. There is also an issue of whether Runa is mature enough for a sexual relationship, especially at an age when her sexual maturity may not even be fully developed.

      I hope I have further ruined this “beautiful” thing.

  33. ouch, that last part hurt but it was intended in a good way.

  34. booooooom! says:

    id feel sorry for any of these girls being in a rance game xD

  35. Marking says:

    For those who have been playing the SonoHana visual novels on their Macs, you’ve probably noticed that the Window icons are pretty ugly to look at. Not content with this, I went through and created iOS 7 inspired icons all current SonoHana VNs. If you’re got a MacBook Pro with Retina display, this will benefit you greatly.

    You can download the icon set by clicking here!

  37. Marking says:

    So for those who have been downloading some of the media files that I’ve uploaded here, you may notice that the links that start with “” no longer work. Since that is the case, I’ve redone the links and will post them here as one big comment:

    • Yi says:

      Consolidated with your other comment with the other translations. Thanks dear. ^ ^

      • thanks Yi, i appreciate it. however, since EOX released all the bonus stories for free, i think it’s better to download them from AXYPB’s site. they don’t have pictures though but i’m sure the professional’s work is better then armature’s work like mine.
        i would like it but his website is offline.

      「その花びらにくちづけを 天使たちの約束」
      The above link is the teaser site for the new game.
      The new couple looks like Narumi and Akira from the Blue Series. It says that this game will probably come out next spring in 2014. However, knowing gaming companies, it’ll probably come out around next summer is what I’m guessing, with all the last final touches, adjustments, and all.
      Personally, I am excited to hear the opening song for this because of Anzu Hana’s (杏花)song.

      • Yi says:

        Thanks for all the updates, Get_Lucky, and the detailed information, セイラ. ^ ^ They look lovely. ♥

        I’ve now included them in the index. I’m excited about Anzu Hana too!

    I’ve found the download link for Shirayuki no Kishi. But you’ll need a RyuShare premium account. Anybody want to give it a try?

  45. says:

    Do you have any reliable source for hanahira characters’ age?
    Even though they look so young but I think I have evidences that they are high schoolers and even the third-year student.
    The first thing is their uniform. They have the same uniform as high schooler in the main series, include the summer uniform (in the light novel Noisy Girls of the Beach – 渚のかしまし娘たち) , while Runa’s elementary and middle school uniform look different.
    The secound point is the classroom back ground. They have the same classroom design as Shizuku and Erisu’s classroom. And in SH8, when Shizuku was giving Erisu a tour, Shizuku said:
    – 「今でこそ沢山の校舎がありますが、初めは人数も少なかったものですから、建物はこの旧校舎だけだったの」=「Nowadays, there are a number of buildings here, but originally this was the only one. There weren’t as many people attending back then, after all.」
    – 「教室も少ないので、ここで学べるのは、わたくしたち3年生だけなんです」=「There aren’t many classrooms either, so only we third-year students have lessons here.」
    – 「当時の文化を感じられる作りで、学生からも人気なんですよ」=「The building has the look and feel of the culture back then, so it’s quite popular with the student body.」
    (source: yuriproject wiki
    Doesn’t that meant Hanahira girls are indeed 3rd year highschooler? Then they are even older than many characters in the main series? Maybe they look as old as Shizuku and Erisu in the chibi CGs :D.

    • セイラ says:

      Yes, they’re in highschool. It’s just the artwork that is different. They might be in their freshman year (first year in highschool) though, because I think I remember them talking about Shizuku and Erisu as “upper classmen”. So, just think of them to be around 16 years old. However, in the game world, there’s an inside joke on how all characters are over the age of “18.”

      • says:

        Talking about Shizuku and Erisu as “senpai” makes Hanahira girls younger than them but that doesn’t mean Hanahira girls are not 3rd year students. Because the order of the time line in Sono Hanabira is not the same as the order of releasing (SH 1,2,3,7,8 start at the same academic year’s begining, which obviously means SH 4,5,6 occur after SH 7,8). Btw, I can’t read Japanese at all so can you tell me more about how they talk about Shizuku and Erisu?
        Connecting evidences then they should be 3rd year students (in the time Hanahira occur) and Hanahira occurs later than the time Shizuku and Erisu graduate. This explain why they didn’t take part in the St.Michael’s Best Couples, and ready to take part in the next Sono Hanabira visual novel!

        • セイラ says:

          Hmm… yes, you’re right. I guess you could assume that they are in their third year if you want. It’s been a while since I played the game. I just remember them talking about the (りりプラチナム) the Lily Platinum during the game. Lily Platinum was something popular with the underclassmen at the school, so the fact that the characters referred to Shizuku as Lily Platinum, I just assumed that the characters were underclassmen as well.
          I would also keep in mind that the maker for Hanahira はなひら isn’t Yurin Yurin ゆりんゆりん. It was Fuguriya ふぐり屋. Therefore, the time they made this game, the idea of the St. Michel’s best couple voting didn’t even exist. Also, Hanahira isn’t a 18 plus rated game, so that just might be the reason they don’t exist in the Yurin Yurin games.
          I guess it is just up for interpretation about their age. It doesn’t state their ages on the sites or anything so.

        • Yi says:

          Oh wow! That’s incredibly careful reading. I love this! ^ ^ I think the uniform is really the most convincing evidence of their being in high school. Their year seems to be as you said as well. This is wonderful Sorayume. Wonderful indeed. ^ ^

          セイラ’s point on their relationship with Shizuku and Erisu is fine too. This really puts Hanahira in perspective with the rest of the series. Good work! (I like the explanation that the couples in Hanahira are younger than Shizuku, but Hanahira occurs when they are in their third years.)

    Walkthrough if anyone wants it:


    For the first runthrough (not sure if you need to complete the new main couple’s story first or not but I’m assuming you do):

    1,1,1,1,2, then 1,1,1 gives you all the new couple scenes

    Then replaying from the start all over again,

    1,1,1,2,1 leads to a choice where you can choose which of the 5 couples you want

    1 leads to Risa/Mika, 2 leads to Yuuna/Nanami, 3 leads to Kaede/Sara, 4 leads to Mai/Reo, 5 leads to the original couple

    After that, each couple route has 3 choices, and just choose 1,1,1 for all of them EXCEPT Mai/Reo, do 1,1,2, to get all the scenes.

    And, finally, if you happen to replay any of them, you might get a choice at the end on a black screen. 1 shows the credits again, 2 goes to the title screen. Not sure if this showed up in any previous games, just something I saw when repeating a couple’s route.

    please could someone upload the game Snow White Knight for Mega or Media Fire? onegaiiiii TT_TT

  54. AXYPB says:

    On 20 December 2013, the day A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight was released, Fuguriya announced three new products for release during Comiket 85 on 31 December:

    A Kiss For The Petals – Our Private Morning Straight from a Movie, a drama CD featuring Risa and Miya.
    A Kiss For The Petals – Kitten Love, a drama CD featuring Rikka and Sayuki.
    First Love Melon Kiss, the CD single featuring the theme song to Snow White’s Knight. Curiously, Mai is featured on the cover despite the theme being sung by Anzu Hana.

    Additionally, Fuguriya addressed concerns over the omission of story routes for Takako, Runa, Shizuku, and Eris in a news post dated 12 December 2013. In short, the introduction of a new couple made Yurin Yurin unable to include them within space limitations, so they elected to keep their involvement minimal. They are now working on new dedicated products for these couples, but did not give details.

    • AXYPB says:

      Yurin Yurin also announced the visual novel A Kiss For The Petals – The Angels’ Promise but has not given a specifc release date outside of next spring. It features Inatori Akira and Hikawa Narumi, who were previously seen as supporting characters in the previous two Angel series visual novels. This will conclude the first set of visual novels for the Angel series.

    • Yi says:

      As usual, thank you so so much for all the updates. All products have been added to the index now, including a placeholder for The Angels’ Promise. It’s also good to hear that Fuguriya is still expanding Shizuku and Eris’s roles in Hanabira. I feel like it’s been too long since I’ve seen those two prettiest girls. ^ ^

    I downloaded the new game Shirayuki no Kishi! but I can not open it TT_TT
    what can I do? anyone know how to fix this?
    I really want play it…

    (before I have not had any problems with previous games)

    • Have you set your region to Japanese? I get that error when I don’t change the setting or use app locale

    • セイラ says:

      How did you download it? And where?
      If it’s an ISO or an Mds/mdf, you might need Alcohol 52% or Alcohol 120% to get it to work after you have extracted it.

      • anabona32 says:

        It was too good to be true, it dont work for me either, i changed the region and everything and nothing changes, the strange thing is that i did the same for maidens of michael and everything worked well, but in this one it dont even open… T-T

        • dunno about you guys but, i think you need AlphaROM Cracker installed to your computer. well you see, everything i need to install/play VNs are already in my computer so i’m not sure which one worked on mine. hope that helpes

        • JbstormburstADV says:

          If you could mention what file extension is attached to the disc image, it would go a long way to help. In any case, instead of ARC, I would see if I could get a copy of PowerISO available and mount the image to a virtual drive instead of trying to extract directly, if that’s what you’re doing.

        • Yi says:

          The files contain a .iso and .mds. I use MagicIso. Daemon Tools should work too.

  57. Get_Lucky says:

    What are your thoughts on the new game? Im having a blast with it but I’d enjoy to hear your opinions too including Yi’s (once she got free time that is -3-)

    • Yi says:

      Of course. I’m very behind on this series of games right now, and I will post a review of some of them eventually.

      It was a busy and harsh semester last, and it will probably be another difficult one coming up. Hopefully, I get to enjoy myself over this short break I have right now. I’m really glad you value my opinion. Thanks darling. ^ ^

  58. kawaiiotakustrawberry says:

    (Just saying) don’t you guy’s think that wouldn’t it be cool if they made a Yaoi or straight version of Sono Hanabira Ni Kuchizuke Wo?

    • Get_Lucky says:

      yaoi might be reasonable but Japan already has a ton of games like that, same goes for heterosexual ones, but I think yuri is the only possible way to capture such romantic and sweet and erotic moments like the ones Sonohana has in abundance

    • As someone who’s folliowed/stalked this blog for a few years now (BTW, Yi, hi again), I feel that Sono Hana can only work through yuri, as while I’m sure that hetero and yaoi VNs of the same emotional capacity have or could pop up, it’s really hard to make something in either subset completely sympathetic without losing interest or leading somewhere else. Additionally, Fuguriya and Yurin Yurin have both gone on record saying that they will dedicate themselves to yuri, so I doubt it would ever happen.

      • Yi says:

        Hi JbstomrburstADV! I remember your Nanoha avatar. ^ ^

        Agreed that I doubt it will happen, and if they ever did go in that direction, it will be under a different label.

    • sorayume says:

      Sono Hanabira series is specialized in PURE yuri.
      Yurin Yurin claimed it recently(10 October 2013):
      “Harems of female protagonists, sex toys simulating male genitals, dick-girl transformations, gender bending, and entanglements with males, to say nothing of grotesque depictions of bodily fluids or depressing plot developments, are all completely absent. Its distinguishing characteristic is its portrayal of sexy, romantic relationships between girls. Its appeal isn’t just cute girls having sex, but in the fun, lighthearted depiction of couples going out on dates and stealing kisses in school.”

      However, there are some existence of hetero and harem thing. I.E:
      Rena(runa’s older sister) has a big harem;
      Otsuki Aoi (Nanami’s friend) is a shotacon;
      Shitara Misaki (Nanami’s friend) is in love with her older brother;
      Asou Rin (Nanami’s friend) is in a threesome relation, although not confirmed thier gender, they seem not to be 2 boys; and in Shira no Kishi, it’s the first time there is a boy in the CG (Mai’s youger brother).
      (source about Nanami’s friends
      But they are not going to make products about anything other than pure yuri.

      • Yi says:

        Great points. ^ ^ I’d add too that most of those characters named are support characters, and some are especially minor (Mai’s brother).

    I just found out that you can delete the game slot’s by going into the SAVE folder and deleting the GAME.SAV files Will that affect the game in any other way?

    • JbstormburstADV says:

      I don’t think so. I’ve deleted the Save files for the older games a lot whenever I wanted to do a clean install. I also did it when I compiled the first twelve games (Hanahira and Maidens of St. Michael included) on MEGA, so I think you’re good.

    • sorayume says:

      For SH1->10 and Hanahira (I haven’t played other VNs), you can delete save files in SAVE folder to delete game slots. And notice that there are two special things:
      – There can be a save file with a number like 99 (while normally you have 50 slot which should be numbered as 00->49). This is the file for quick save.
      – There is a CONFIG file. It contains config (of course 😀 ) and your progress (extra unlocking). Deleting it will make your extra all locked (The game automatically generates a new config file when you run the exe file). You can also copy a CONFIG file to ANOTHER VN(for example from SH3 to SH5) and it’ll unlock your extra! Although not always completely unlocked because of the amount of CG, for example the 5th ev in SH3 has 1 CG and the 5th ev in SH5 has 2 CGs then you’ll miss the 5th ev’s secound CG; and Hanahira has more events than others.

  65. saberfang321 says:

    Just thought I’d give you the heads up, I started playing The Angel’s Spring Romance, and the couple featured in that game are not Chiaki and Ringo. It’s a new couple, and their names were Yuuno And Satsuki :). In the Sono Hanabira tab you still have them listed as Chiaki and Ringo.

This includes the light novels Our Christmas Together, Our Vacation Together, Enchanting Kisses on a Tropical Island, Seize the Summer, and eight of the nine Comiket bonus stories.

    So guys do you think that it’s possible that the eris x shizuku and takako x runa couples return to be “playable” in any of the canon SH games coming from now on? Or do you believe that the tendency is that these couples start to being even more forgotten just simply vanishing in the upcoming games? I really want opinions from others since these two are my favorite couples and I really disappointed with the last game where they not have even a significant participation.

  79. satsunyan says:

      The upcoming nurse one or the last main Sonohana game?

      • anabona32 says:

        I was talking about Snow White’s Knight XD (Shirayuki no Kishi), the other one with the nurses I’m not interested in following/accompanying.

        • Patient 0014 says:

          Why were you disappointed? What makes you think that?
          I think it was pretty great

        • anabona32 says:

          It was boring to be very honest….and I generally hated the individual stories.
          1- Reo was alone in most of her screen time (or with Mai’s brothers)…what was the poit of that? I like Mai too! Why so much focus on the tsundere alone? I do like her interation with Eris indeed but we almost didnt see Mai’s face…

          2- Kaede and Sara….for me the “I will be a model too just because Sara says so” Sounds TERRIBLE, weak and of the character to me…(i know that this isnt new) but it sounds like the authors are wanting to do fanservice too bad using Kaede because of her breast size and ignoring her (and this dont works for me)ignoring her reserved personality. Ok she dress up for Sara and vice versa but for the cameras?Just because she says so?No.

          3- Kaede and Sara again…I do love these 2….maybe because of that i have to say that i deslike this….they have the shortest H-time (just 3 scenes if i do remember well) and in 2 of them they were role-playing….they were not being themselves, i mean c’mon! :/

          4 – Shizuku and Eris! …WHY?!

          5- The main story was more “exciting” thing and still….It wasnt so good…
          So she had a pretender?So what if everybody KNOWS that she will stay going out with the other girl anyways? The story was going so good so far but then they tried to do this big predicable drama about this when they never ever dared to put drama or some reality in the stupid Pedophile couple (That thanks GOD wasnt on these one, i hate this “couple” SO hard XDDDD). That was terrible, I could not decide if I could laugh or cry with that.

        to be honest my japaneze isnt perfect too, and i just understand a fer things so i did not get why she was missing too, later on i just knew that she was in the hospital and something had happened with her mother so she was there for her. First i I thought she had an accident or was sick but in the end I was surprised that she was pregnant, i also missed a lot of the things that happened but at least thats what i know ^^

        I am self taught and I’m learning just listening now and i also do not understand the written words…but at least thats what i know, i hope i had helped.

    • ShizukuErisuFan says:

      To be honest, the latest titles seems to be suffering on overused plots and recycled ideas… which makes them not as interesting as previous ones.
      Also so far, the ‘Nurse School’ titles have a big distinction in the story vibes as they were written by a different scenario writer (original hanabira series were written by Sano and JUN, the new spinoff were written by madoka). In my opinion, Madoka is trying hard to make the story fits well with the originals but as a result she failed… There were too much melodrama and unnecessary plot tweaks in both nurse titles.

      • Patient 0113 says:

        We have a mixed bag here, while most people think the latest games had the best stories so far, some people think they’re weak compared to the older ones, I think they’re improving a lot lately but to each on his own I guess

      • anabona32 says:

        You used the right word here: MELODRAMA! Its amazing how when there is a change between the writers of a story always something really good is lost..

      • anabona32 says:

        Pitty but maybe it’s a good time to me say goodbye to this series and go back to see the regular stuff again. ( Ive never been too much into yuri stuff anyways)

      • Yi says:

        Admittedly though, overused plots and recycled ideas are both prevalent in yuri titles across mediums (manga, anime, visual novels), especially when one has seen enough yuri stuff. The difference is in which character tropes are paired with which and in what scenario and with which gimmick. That said, I don’t mind.

  89. Atheya Finyl says:

    Can someone help please! How come the English patch for Hanabira 2-8 are not working?

    • tamed lion says:

      The links from the patches redirect you to
      Unfortunately, AXYPB’s Homepage is currently offline.

      • Atheya Finyl says:

        Oh! then I can still download them I just have to wait until AXYPB is online, right?

        • tamed lion says:

          Yeah, I guess. But it has been nearly a week since the website went offline.
          I wonder what he’s up to…
          (Maybe working on a beta patch for Hanabira 9? can’t wait >.<)

          From an anom in /u/, (maybe he arked AXYPB through email)

    Here’s the new preview movie to the new game if anyone is interested.

    • kawaiiotakustrawberry says:

      Can’t wait for it to come out for download!

      • セイラ says:

        Me too! It seems like the nurse Sono hana series isn’t as popular as the Classic Sono hana series (which is understandable considering how long it’s only been out), but I honestly like the nurse series too. (I have no idea why they made the chest sizes the way they did though… )
        Madoka, the writer for this series is pretty well known for her scenario writing in the yuri world. I am especially excited for this couple because I feel like Madoka likes characters similar to Akira considering her past work in other yuri games… There’s always a tsundere with long black hair. Haha

  92. kawaiiotakustrawberry says:

    This fanvideo is so cute!

  93. if you guys are interested, here are translations for Rikka-Sayuki Theater.

  95. Mayjaplaya says:

    I’ve been a yuri fan for a few months now, but I just recently decided to jump into Sono Hanabira. Now I can’t stop playing them, even though they’re dangerous for my health!

    I’m happy there’s such a big, comprehensive yuri series like this, and I’m happy there’s a big, comprehensive blog for this series.

    I was on the Wikipedia page for the series, and there’s a link on Reo’s seiyuu’s name (“Anzu Hana”) that actually leads to Hisako Kanemoto’s article! Are they actually the same person? Is Reo… Ika Musume of all characters?!

    • Yi says:

      I’m glad you enjoy this series!

      Someone brought up the idea that Hisako Kanemoto is Anzu Hana sometime ago. It was pretty much dismissed then as there is no conclusive source that they are the same. I’m not sure why Wikipedia has Anzu Hana redirected to Hisako Kanemoto.

      • Mayjaplaya says:

        Ok, figured it was an old theory anyway.

        Even though there’s no conclusive evidence, now that I’ve been exposed to the speculation I can’t help imagining a “degeso” or “naika” at the end of half the things Reo says. Not complaining though! I enjoyed Ika Musume.

        • Yi says:

          Haha, I enjoyed Ika Musume as well (well, the first season that is). “Baka Mai degeso” has a nice charm to it. ♥

      I may be understanding this wrong, but if it’s about my inattention to this blog the last months, I apologize for that. My life is quite busy these days, and it’s difficult for me to find the time and mental energy to attend to everything after a long day.

      I try though.

      Also, trailer looks beautiful! Thanks. ^ ^

    • anabona32 says:

      Lol? Its HER blog…She can talk here about what she wants, what was that for?
      Talking only about hanabira its not her obligation…she does it because she wants and if one day she does not want anymore it will be a pitty, but also would be only for her business, she have her own life so she is the only one here who can really say what “can paid more importance” XD

  97. Kami Nii-sama says:

    Hello everyone 🙂 . Any updates for the translation of SonoHana 9 game???
    im looking forward to it. btw thanks for this community i always get updates ^_^

  98. セイラ says:

    >>So there was an update saying that Madoka is going to continue write more scenarios for the Nurses’ Sonohanabira games in the future.

    It turns out that there was a debate whether they were going to go through with the games or not after the latest Narumi and Akira couple. However, Madoka has said that because of all the supporting fans, she has been asked to write sequels for the Nurses’ Sonohanabira games…

    >>Also, Madoka said that later on in the month (probably before the Angel’s Promise comes out), there will probably be those youtube mini theater things with Akira and Narumi since she finished writing the short scenarios for that… (like the RisaMiya Gekijyou and the Rikka Sayuki one)

    >>Considering how much Yurin Yurin is putting emphasis on this Akira Narumi couple, it seems like they are really expecting it to be a big hit on the Nurses’ SonoHanabira side. I don’t know why, but that seems like the case looking at how organized and detailed they are going through with this.

    • Yi says:

      I’m a little out of touch, but I wonder how popular the nurse series is. That there was a debate about going through with the Narumi and Akira games seems to suggest that perhaps the nurses haven’t been that big of a hit, and the emphasis on Akira x Narumi couple may be a new effort to gain some momentum on this front. This is just pure baseless and pointless speculation on my part though.

      • セイラ says:

        Haha, same here. Totally agree with you. Let’s see how it goes. But it doesn’t hurt to speculate right? LOL
        Hope they can do whatever they are trying to do.

  99. セイラ says:

    So this is for the ReoxMai fans. If you really like Reo or Mai, you would probably enjoy watching the Reoppoi Radio (玲緒っぽいらじお). Anzu Hana is the personality for this radio and she talks about all sorts of stuff… Stuff that I can’t really keep up with honestly. She speaks in her “Reo” voice though and sometimes guests from the games come and visit.

    There’s this uploader who is really dedicated at posting the video up on youtube, so if you’re interested, check it out. (link) >>>>

          The game IS already fully translated, but since they are still checking for any errors on it, there’s not an english patch ready for release

    So far, Narumi x Akira is the best nurse school title so far though still got some dragged parts here and there. Akira have mixed personality that of Reo and Shizuku.

    • セイラ says:

      Me too! Before playing the game, I really liked Akira, but after playing it, I think I like Narumi more. I like her personality.

      • YuriFan300 says:

        I haven’t played the game, but I just looked through the CG of the game and had a question about it. I noticed that most of the pictures had Akira crying. What was that about? I appreciate it if anyone can tell me. Thanks 🙂

        • セイラ says:

          About Akira crying…. she kinda had some past issues… haha
          Not that she doesn’t have issues now, but lets just say she’s like a kid, would be a good way to explain it possibly?

  110. YuriFan300 says:

    Hey, has anyone heard the Drama CD “Our Campus Life”? Because I listened to the whole thing recently and in Track 10, I kind of understood what was going on. I was probably thinking that Eris is teaching Shizuku some English, but I could be wrong. I appreciate it if anyone could tell me. Thanks! 🙂

    • YuriFan300 says:

      Sorry, I meant “listened to”. My english isn’t very good. By the way, the 10th track of the Drama CD was very funny! 🙂

    • satsunyan says:

      That’s about right. But Track 10 is a “Free Talk” corner. So in Free Talk corner, Eris is basically teaching/making Shizuku say embarrassing English lol. “Moe Moe Englishu!” That’s what she said.

      • YuriFan300 says:

        Thank you, Satsunyan. 🙂 Yeah, I think that every Drama CD has a “Free Talk” corner at the last track, so that’s why I was asking what was going on.

        • satsunyan says:

          That was the most quality free talk corner I have ever heard. Mi Ei (Shizuku’s VA)-sama’s English amuses me a lot, because she’s so good at it. Makes me love Shizuku more ❤

  111. YuriFan300 says:

    I just had a thought: Wouldn’t be great if Sono Hanabira was an anime series? It could feature all the couples and I think the main characters would be Nanami and Yuuna, just because Nanami’s friends Aoi, Rin and Misaki are involved. What do you guys think?

    • YuriFan300 says:

      I’m saying this because one OVA is not enough.

      • Doobie_Brothers says:

        I totally get what you’re saying, an anime series (or another OVA at least) would be a gift sent by the yuri gods, and im up for the idea of Nanami and Yuuna being the main characters, it could start when Nanami met her and then work it out from there, and as the series go, the other couples show up as well

        • Reikia says:

          Would be awesome, yes!
          And this idea was pretty good with it starting with Nanami meeting Yuuna and later the other couples show up.

    • Yi says:

      Agreed! That would be totally awesome! ^ ^
      There would probably need to be substantial addition to the story other than an adaptation of the visual novels. There’s a lot of fluff and sex scenes that I’m doubtful would fit an anime series well.

  112. YuriFan300 says:

    I’ve been a fan of Sono Hana for a year now, and I’ve noticed a few things about it. One, I know that Mai and Shizuku are close friends and Reo and Eris have a one sided rivalry. Does it always involve having big breasts, and does Eris even care about this rivalry?

    Also, I’ve noticed lately that Risa and Miya somehow resemble Madoka and Homura (if any of you know these two). If not, they are from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Is it true?

    Lastly, it seems that Kaede and Takako are friends as well and I can tell right away that they have a couple things in common. 1. They are both shy. 2. Their lovers seem to be the dominant ones (if I’m phrasing it right). But what else do they have in common? Or is that just it?

    If anyone can explain it, I would really appreciate it. Thanks 🙂

    • Drinkie says:

      Since i can’t read Kanji/Katakana i can’t answer these too well but here goes.

      1. Reo’s and Eri’s rivalry i’m not sure about i’ve heard they do have one but no idea why i’m guessing it is due to breast sizes.

      2. I’m only about half way through the Risa/Miya theater i’m gonna carry one once Maidens of Micheal FINALLY get’s a eng translation but so far no i’ve not noticed any similarities i’ve not seen the Rebellion Story so no idea about Homura’s “current” form but neither her Moemura or Hommando forms resemble either Risa or Miya same with Madoka.

      3. About Kaede by Sono Hana 4 she’s mostly the dominant one in her’s and Sara’s relationship i’m replaying it now and i’m certain however again i can only understand the ones that have been translated into english so far so from 7 onwards i think it is my knowledge is seriously lacking.

      • Doobie_Brothers says:

        Reo and Eris relationship is more like a love-hate one, Reo doesn’t like Eris because she’s more well endowed and Eris likes to tease Reo about her petite form, but despite that, they care about each other in fact in the ErisShizuku route in Maidens of Michael she does a great favor to Shizuku in regard to Eris.

        Also Takako and Kaede have something else in common, they both have huge breasts 😛

        • YuriFan300 says:

          Oh, I see. Because in Maidens of Michael, there’s some CG pictures of Reo and Eris. one is when they present some valentines, another is when they fight over something and the last one is when Eris is hugging Reo, probably apologizing to her or something.

          In Snow White’s Knight, there is a CG on Reo and Eris again, this time while drinking tea. I’m thinking that Eris is teasing her again because of Reo’s expression, but I could be wrong. Anyway, that’s what I think those pictures are about. What do you guys think?

        • Doobie_Brothers says:

          Eris was hugging Reo as thanks for SPOILERcalming Shizuku since she thought Eris left her for good after their graduationSPOILER

          Im not so sure about the rest of the CG featuring them, my memory is a bit fuzzy at the moment

    • Reo and Eris are Frienemies (Friend/enemy). it started when Mai and Reo meet Shizuku and Eris in open air baths. (Comiket volume 81 bonus) but now they are friends.
      also, in later series, Kaede becomes less shy and more bold. she even started modelling.
      i don’t know much about Risa and Miya

      • YuriFan300 says:

        Kaede is less shy? That can explain the drama CD “Kaede-chan Super Mode”. But thanks for the info. I always get the impression that Kaede is always the shy person. I don’t know about Takako, though. I’m guessing she’s like Kaede, too, where she becomes more of a bold person, but I could be wrong. I get the impression that Takako is always shy as well possibly because of Runa or that’s just Takako’s personality.

    • satsunyan says:

      Mai/Reo and Eris/Shizuku are all basically friends. Reo is just “Tsundere” over Eris’ “Monster Breasts” and this is why they often get into arguments, although it’s more of a “one-sided argument” on Reo’s side, because Eris would never argue with people. Basically, Eris doesn’t care about this rivalry. If she wants Reo’s good-side, she’ll just fish her with sweets. LOL.

      About MiyaRisa, people have noticed that ever since the concept art came out.

      About Kaede/Takako, this is probably because they’re both shy girls who has younger lovers. Most likely.

  113. Sanae says:

    Hey, I’ve just listened to Rikka and Sayuki Drama CD “Kitten Love” and I understand a little about what’s going on, at least the beginning that is. So, Rikka finds this little kitten somewhere and decides to show Sayuki. But when she does, Sayuki becomes very timid or something for some reason, leaving Rikka dumbfounded. Then later, Rikka becomes even more surprised when she sees Sayuki-san actually playing with the kitten.
    So I’m further into the drama cd and it seems that Sayuki was crying about something. Was Rikka angry with her? Or did Sayuki-san feel so guilty that she had to cry? I don’t know but that’s the impression I’m getting. Would someone please explain it to me if they ever listened to their Drama CD?

    By the way, the kitten noises were so cute!~ 🙂 🙂

    • Eity says:

      Basically Sayuki loves cats, but very embarrassed about it (because of bad happening in her childhood), and tries to hide it from Rikka. So at one side she wants to hug kitten, but on the other putting her best effort, to not show any interest. But later when Rikka left, Sayuki started to play with kitten… and was discovered by Rikka, whe she come back. So she was crying because she was seen and worried that Rikka would not think well about it.

  114. YuriFan300 says:

    Oh, I forgot to mention this yesterday: I’ve just realized that there are more tsundere girls in the Sono Hana series, like Reo, Risa, Shizuku and Akira. I don’t know about Ringo and Runa though. Somehow, I’m feeling that the writers got the other tsunderes because of Reo. After all, Reo is the Number 1 tsundere in the Sono Hana series.

    Also, I’ve been questioning about which Sono Hana character teases their lover the most. I bet it’s Mai since she’s head over heals with Reo and her cuteness. Eris could be second since she makes Shizuku’s tsundere personality to happen. (I think). And then, Miya teasing Risa and then Narumi probably teasing Akira as well. (By the way, doesn’t Akira resemble Shizuku because of the hime-cut hair of hers?)

    Lastly, in the Sono Hana Nurse Series, I keep having the feeling that Ringo is a tsundere as well, but I could be wrong. She seems to act like it a little bit due to Chiaki being all over her.

    So, if any of you guys can tell me which character teases their lover the most and how the writers got more tsundere girls, let me know. Thanks.

    • satsunyan says:

      Character that teases their lover the most is 100/10 Miya. She’s an opportunist, she’ll tease Risa in wherever/whatever situation there is because 1) She knows Risa is a serious person 2) Since she’s a serious person she doesn’t care about getting back at her 3) Risa is too Tsundere Miya can’t help it.

      Out of all the Tsundere in the series, I believe Risa is the most generic one, because she’s kind to everyone, except her object of interests. (Remember how Miya/Risa started with love-hate lmao). Reo is the “Tsun” Type of Tsundere, where she’s basically just like that and the dere is reserved for the lover during dere moments. Shizuku would be considered the “Dere” Type since she’s mostly dere, but if push comes to shove and Eris decides to troll her she becomes Tsun. Not sure about the Nurse games, never played them.

    • nonbi says:

      Ringo’s not a tsundere. She just gets mad for being treated like a child.
      Akira is “Tsun” since she’s harsh to everyone but opens up to Narumi. Narumi does tease Akira, but Narumi messes around with everyone.
      We got more Tsunderes because Tsunderes are good, enough said.

  115. Sanae says:

    Does anyone like Ringo’s voice in “Longing of an Angel”? For me, I didn’t really think it fits her because it sounds a little older than she looks, but as I started watching the Chiaki and Ringo theatre, I got used to it more and more. Chiaki’s voice is awesome, considering she’s soft-spoken and all. Anyway, that’s my opinion of Ringo’s voice.

    • nonbi says:

      I think that Ringo’s voice suits her and it’s cute. Even though she’s around 18 her voice has a slight “squeak” to it making her sound immature. Ringo’s easily the most childish out of the nursing students even though she tries not to. So I think her voice is perfect for someone like her trying to act more grown-up (and failing).

      • Sanae says:

        Eh? I thought Chiaki was the childish one. Am I missing something here? But then again, I haven’t played the game nor can understand Japanese.

        • nonbi says:

          Chiaki is mostly mature but acts sloppy at home (around Ringo). Ringo is childish so even her friends treat her like a kid at times.

  116. SnarkWolf says:

    I’ve been a fan of SonoHana for about two years now and recently, I’ve been wanting to write a fanfic since there appears to be very little of them. Currently I have two ideas (AU/Fantasy/Action): crossover with Baccano! and a story involving the girls battling dinosaurs created by a mad scientist. (It sounds silly, yes. But I have a very active imagination. :D) So what sounds cool and how do I portray/present the story?

    • ChAkA kHaN says:

      well, the idea of Sonohana characters being alchemists, mafia thugs, etc. sounds like a promising idea but the other one seems interesting too, I think you’ll have more luck with the first one but if you feel more relaxed when you’re working with your own ideas then go try the second one, it all depends in what you want to do with the story after all.

      • SnarkWolf says:

        Thank you. If I have the time to do so, I’ll re-watch Baccano to get some ideas and get down to writing.

    Nintendo announced Tomodachi Life for 3DS to be released in North America and Europe this June. I offer these Mii characters for those planning on playing it.

  118. YuriFan300 says:

    For those of you who know Rena, Runa’s little sister, how old do you think she is? I know for certain that Takako is in her early 20’s, probably about 24 or so. I’m probably thinking Rena is about in her late 20’s or early 30’s. That’s what I’m thinking because Sono Hanabira rarely tells us the character’s ages.

    • YuriFan300 says:

      I’m sorry, I meant Runa’s older sister.

    • Yi says:

      I think she should be around Takako’s age. Their high school lives overlapped, which probably suggests that they’re within three years of each other. So, late 20’s seem like an appropriate guess.

      • Sanae says:

        Huh. Rena sounds a little older than her early 20’s. Because i learned that when Takako started high school, Rena had just started college. Later on, Rena became Takako’s tutor. Is that correct?

    Does anyone think Peko’s art is better than it did from the first Sono Hanabira game? I can sort of tell the difference from the first one to the 12th game, Maidens of Michael and Snow White’s Knight. I could be wrong, but I’m sure that it’s the same artist.

  121. YuriFan300 says:

    The models seem a bit different ever since Maidens of Michael came out, so I’m a little curious about how he did them.

  122. Sanae says:

    OK, I looked up Snow White’s Knight recently and noticed on the relationship chart that Rikka and Risa are chlidhood friends. And because of that, Miya seems to be jealous of Rikka while Rikka is scared of her. To me, I can understand why Miya would have such rivalry with Rikka, like having Risa all to herself, but what would make Rikka scared of Miya?

  123. venz says:

    It says on the synopsis for Maidens of Michael and in the sono hanabira wiki that Reo is “the star singer of the cultural festival.” However, I don’t really know when that happened in the games. Did I miss something? Is it in the drama CDs? I really want to know and see/hear what Mai’s reaction was when she first heard Reo sing! Someone help? :3

    • ChAkA kHaN says:

      I believe it was on one of the Drama CD’s, but since almost none of us cant understand what was going on them it’s hard to tell o3o

  124. ChAkA kHaN says:

    New Drama CD about Yuuno and Satsuki coming up soon!

    Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Soreha Marude Nagai Yume.
    Release date: TBA
    Source: the fine folks at /u/

  125. YuriFan300 says:

    Was anyone else shocked when you first heard Anzu Hana’s voice as Satsuki? To me, I was very surprised that she would have such a wonderful voice instead of her high-pitched, yet adorable Reo voice of hers. I mean, I found out that Hana voiced Satsuki as well just a year ago. And to be honest, I got so used to her Reo voice that I was actually shocked to hear her real voice as Satsuki. Besides, I’m amazed how long Hana can keep up with her high-pitched voice when she plays Reo. Anyone agree?

    And speaking of voices, which seiyuu fits Nanami more? Because I looked up her character and it says that she’s voiced by several different actresses, including the drama CDs. In my opinion, I think her voice in Snow White’s Knight and Maidens of Michael fits her the most. Don’t know about the first and 6th game. I mean it’s okay, it’s just that I don’t have any other opinion on it since she’s voiced by more than one actress.

    • nonbi says:

      I love Reo and Satsuki’s voices, Anzu Hana is quite talented. The recent Reoppoi Radio were hilarious – having to switch between Reo and Satsuki must have been tough.

      I prefer Nanami’s voice from the 1st and 6th games. Ever since the full-price games, they made everyone more “cutesy,” like Reo getting slightly higher-pitched and Nanami getting a new voice. I got used to Nanami’s new voice, but it just doesn’t have that “spunky ordinary girl” feel to it that made her stand out.

      • ChAkA kHaN says:

        I agree, her old voice, or the one used for their second Drama CD, was adorablelicious and really fit her character

        I never understand why they dont use that one for the new games? perhaps you’re right, they sticking with that voice because they think its cute

  126. YuriFan300 says:

    You know, since Mai and Reo are friends with Shizuku and Eris most of the time, I’m feeling that’s probably the reason why they made the drama CD “Dark-Haired Lovers”, in which we never get to listen to. Just wondering, does it take place after Maidens of Michael or during? I can never keep track of what time period those drama CDs were made, like in “Our Campus Life”, I think it takes place after Shizuku and Eris’s graduation and going into college (at least, that’s what I read in the synopsis). By the way, what is the “Secret Black-Haired Society” that Mai and Shizuku are in really? I mean, I know it’s a secret and all, but can someone at least give me a few hints or so? Thanks.

    I also listened to the Drama CD “Kaede-chan Newly Wed Cooking” and I’m kind of in the third track or fourth track. While listening to it, I feel totally lost. I understood most of it as usual, but when I got further, I have no idea what’s going on. Anyway, on the 3rd track, I sort of had this impression that something went wrong when Sara came home or something and she was crying. So, Kaede offered her some food to calm her down. I can’t remember what happened after that.

    Then, on the 4th track, I think it was Sara or Kaede muttering to herself as she was in her room or something. (I can’t tell between Kaede and Sara’s voices because they sound a little similar). Anyway, something happened there and I think Sara slipped and knocked over some pots, making Kaede worry. Next, Sara went outside for some reason cause I heard some wind noise and Kaede was trying to stop her. The next thing I heard was, “Kaede-chan . . . sayonara.” And then, I heard another wind noise and a thud on the ground, leaving Kaede crying out to her lover. I don’t know if Sara’s trying to commit suicide or if it’s just a dream Kaede’s having. Can someone explain this to me if they listened to the Drama CD? I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

    • Drinkie says:

      Damn i really hope that last one is just a dream especially considering just how deeply Kaede and Sara loved each other in Beloved Photograph to the point where Kaede proposed to Sara but yeah i’d like to know what’s going on now

  127. Sanae says:

    So . . . what do you guys think of the 2nd Sono Hana game? I mean, I’ve watched someone actually play it on YouTube and he didn’t like it. He said something about the game not having a good story line or something. I don’t know, but it seems that the 2nd game wasn’t as good as the 1st one. In my opinion, it’s okay, but now that I think about it, it really doesn’t have a good plot to it other than Kaede meeting her cousin again.

    • ChAkA kHaN says:

      Well, the first 3 games would have some weak plots if they were a regular VN but for an eroge its pretty good, the cool thing about Sonohana is that not only the characters develop but the storylines as well to the point you can see that Maidens of Michael or Snow White Knight have some nice storylines

  128. nato says:

    i would like to know if they are still working in sono hanabira patch 9 and 10. because there is not news about it and there are not saying anything about this patch?

    can we please have some news? maybe when you think it will come out this year or the other and are they still working on it?

    • Kami Nii-sama says:

      i would like to know too

      • ChAkA kHaN says:

        The translations are done, the only thing left to do is check for any errors and the like, those sort of procedures take their time but apparently its “almost” in the final stages so look forward to it

  129. AXYPB has released preview MSD for 9th and 10th game. this is only for preview and is not final edition.

  130. Sanae says:

    Is there going to be a Narumi and Akira theatre of some sort or not? Because I keep having the feeling that it will never happen.

  131. Sanae says:

    I have a question about Akira regarding “An Angel’s Promise.” I saw a CG of her past and was wondering what was about. Did someone die or something? And also, there was another where there was a chibi version of Narumi and Akira and Akira was picturing herself as a skeleton. Is that what she sees herself or is it the other way around? I appreciate it if someone can explain that to me. Thanks. ☺

  132. Sanae says:

    Okay . . . I’m totally lost here. I just realized that the committee Yuuna and Nanami are in has a few different names other than Environmental Protection Committee, like Campus Beautification Committee or Environmental Infrastructure Council. Can someone explain that to me? I would appreciate it if they would. Thank you. ☺

    By the way, I just noticed something: when looking at Yuuna, she does seem like an “Onee-sama” (Big Sister) to me, especially her figure in Maidens of Michael and Snow White’s Knight. Is that why they had Nanami calling her that?

    • ChAkA kHaN says:

      Those are just different ways to call it, no big deal.
      And, in the first game, after they became a couple, Yuuna asked Nanami if she could refer to her as ‘Onee-sama’ when they are alone, there’s no reason to it I guess other than being one of Yuuna’s dreams, personally, i think its cute

  134. milekai09 says:

    guys can i ask do you have the english translation for risa x miya light novel.. give me a copy pls T_T

  135. coldenic says:

    “Easter egg day” – cute love ep.7
    continues the story of Mai and Reo, this time with a special of  Easter day :p

    • Sanae says:

      Um, I tried to access your site, but it says “Mature Filter On”. Does this comic contain some mature content or something? If it does, I can’t access it. By the way, your “Feed Me” artwork is super cute. It just keeps getting better and cuter at the same time. 🙂

  136. YuriFan300 says:

    Does anyone know how long it takes to translate a Sono Hana comiket bonus story vs a Light Novel? By the way, a new Light Novel translation for Mai and Reo just came out! Check it out!

    • LN takes longer time to be translated for obvious reason of them being longer. however, they don’t get translated that often anyways.

      • YuriFan300 says:

        Ok, I know that light novels take a lot longer than comiket bonus stories, but specifically how long does it take? Because I’ve been noticing that the new comiket bonus stories take about 3 or 4 months after its release. Is that correct?

  137. AXYPB says:

    A Kiss For The Petals – Our Hot Summer Together (その花びらにくちづけを 二人の暑い夏 Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Futari no Atsui Natsu), the first light novel featuring Mai and Reo, has been translated by Ralen. Download it and other light novel translations at this release page.

  138. Sanae says:

    I’ve been questioning about Mai’s voice since I heard the OVA. It seems that they’ve raised the pitch a bit to make it seem cuter, I guess. I don’t know. But, in my opinion, I prefer Mai’s voice in the Visual Novels. It sounds more mature and kind of boyish. What do you guys think of Mai’s voice in the VN vs the OVA?

    • tamed lion says:

      Yeah, they’ve raised the pitch for both Mai’s and Reo’s voices (My first thought was that they got new voice actresses (hope that will never happen!! >.<))
      So yes, i totally agree with you. The more boyish voice Mai has in the VN's just fits her perfectly.
      Same goes with Reo. I don't want to say she sounds boyish, but her voice is a little more husky (if thats the right word) than in the OVA.

  139. YuriFan300 says:

    Wow! I just read the English translated Mai and Reo Light Novel Our Hot Summer Together and I’m surprised that the whole thing is in Reo’s point of view. In the other one, Seize the Summer, it’s in both Mai and Reo’s point of view. For these two, they are really made for each other.

    Speaking of Reo, I have some questions about her. It seems that she has a fear of strangers and is often alone at her apartment. What made her have this type of fear? Was she always this lonely and aggressive before she met Mai? Is her tsundere personality the only thing that made her popular? Knowing Reo, she must have a difficult childhood and I kind of feel bad for her. What do you guys think of her other than her aggressive self? If someone can explain that to me, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks.

    • Drinkie says:

      I would also like to know the reasons behind her fear of strangers something must have happened it could be due to her parents not being there all the time or something else

      • coldenic says:

        I’ve also been very impressed about how Reo saw life … caused me much pain the beginning, but at least I’m glad she’s found a great person as Mai, to accompany her ever … even she has to often caring for younger siblings

        love this light novel, since, showed us a little more about the history of Reo, their past and their points of view about Mai and its relationship

        Thank you very much for translating this beautiful light novel TT_____TT

        • Sanae says:

          Hey, I have an idea. How you draw something about Reo’s history or something like that? That could be added to your “Cute Love” episodes, if you wanted to. Anyway, it’s just a suggestion since your art is always cute and beautiful. 🙂

        • Sanae says:

          I only speak English. And what’s “chronicle of tsundere”? Is that a title of your next project?

      • Sanae says:

        Sorry, I meant “How about”. My english isn’t too good either.

        • Sanae says:

          Oh, by the way, I’ve read the newly translated light novel as well and honestly, I liked it when it was in Reo’s point of view. It gives me a whole new perspective on her and some of her background. Anyone agree?

          Also, about Reo’s fear of strangers, I don’t know how she has that fear either, but there is one part in the third game where Mai tries to have Reo make friends with some of their classmates and it didn’t turn out too well. It just made Reo angry after the girls were being all over her. Is that one part of her fear or am I missing something?

        • coldenic says:

          Reo was saying that she was afraid of strangers because she did not want to trust anyone … to not get disappointments
          in fact, she did not want to have friends to not suffer … (poor little)

          that’s why she became an insecure girl

        • coldenic says:

          me gusta mucho tu idea de ilustrar las “cronicas de una tsundere”
          lo habia pensado… pero creo que lo voy a hacer, gracias por tu sugerencia

          PD: qué idioma hablas? mi idioma nativo es el español

        • coldenic says:

          I like your idea of illustrating the “chronicle of tsundere”
          I had thought … but I think I’ll do it, thanks for your suggestion

          PS: What language do you speak? My native language is Spanish

          (sorry … I wrote in Spanish -__- )

    • Sanae says:

      I only speak English. And what’s “chronicle of tsundere”? Is that a title of your next project?

      • coldenic says:

        my project will be called as the prologue of Our Hot Summer Together, “The Melancholy of a Ferocious Beast”

        I will illustrate what relates Reo

    • Yi says:

      From what I remember of their first visual novel, Reo’s fear of loneliness and tendency to push away others stem partly from her home life, where her parents often had to leave her alone for hours on end due to work. At least, that was the impression I got.
