English Translation: A Kiss For The Petals – Our Valentine’s Together

A Kiss For The Petals – Our Valentine’s Together (その花びらにくちづけを 二人のバレンタイン Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Futari no Valentine), the second light novel featuring Nanami and Yuuna, has been translated by Ralen. Download it and other light novel translations at this release page.

The roundtable at the end makes multiple references to “Sweet Enchanting Kisses”. This is the short story series published online between September 2007 and October 2009, not the visual novel later released with the same name.


 

Untitled-1Their first Valentine’s alone together

With Valentine’s Day a mere month away, Nanami is in a bind. This will be her first Valentine’s with Onee-sama. What kind of chocolate should she give her? Perhaps she could pour her passion into baking her a homemade chocolate cake? But what if she doesn’t like it?  Maybe an expensive store-bought chocolate would be the safer route. But then what about the cost…? There are just so many details to agonize over, but at the same time that’s half the fun.

And then, with one week to go, as soon as they’re alone together, Yuuna nervously approaches Nanami.

“Nanami, do you happen to know what day it will be one week from now?”

With Yuuna looking like she can hardly wait, Nanami responds without thinking, “But of course, Onee-sama.  I’ve got an extra-special chocolate planned for you!”

And so begins Nanami’s Operation: Valentine’s Day♪

Fanart: Rikka x Sayuki Table Turner (Updated 2 July 2014)

Rikka x Sayuki Table Turner

Yuriwhale’s latest installment of the “Table Turner” series introduces Rikka and Sayuki, as well as major changes to the format. Two 4-koma strips are included in each page, replacing the tangential side art. The cover image will instead feature the level of detail the side art had. As with all previous editions, the strips feature no dialogue. Starting with this page, there will also be no titles, completely eliminating any language barrier. Further pages will be published in the deviantART gallery. After this story, Yuriwhale plans to cover the Angels characters in a new series titled “Pillow Talker”, and then begin anew with Nanami and Yuuna.

Update 2 July 2014: With the final page of this chapter, Yuriwhale announced plans for a print compilation of all current Table Turner stories. Seven new extra pages will be included exclusively for this collection, one for each chapter as extensions of each story. Pricing and availability details are pending. After its publication, work on Pillow Talker will begin.

Fuguriya announced a new visual novel featuring Shizuku and Eris titled A Kiss For The Petals – My Sworn Love for You (その花びらにくちづけを あなたに誓う愛 Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Anata ni Chikau Ai) for release on 23 May 2014 as a download and 31 May 2014 on disc.

As it has yet to be announced formally by Yurin Yurin, it remains to be seen if this story will be included in the canon currently undergoing in their products.

The announcement has been translated by Ralen. See the original announcement for the cover image, the character profile images, and the sample event images, which are not safe for work.

English Translation: A Kiss For The Petals – Our Hot Summer Together

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. It should be noted that the writer roundtable in the end of the book contains coarse language.


 

02ReoOperation: Get Mai All to Myself!

Reo, filled with joy at becoming Mai’s girlfriend… Is in a particularly sour mood today. Mai, ever the sisterly Samaritan, is even more popular at St. Michael’s than ever! She seems to be paying just as much attention to Reo as she always does, but she’s totally ignoring her feelings!

“Mai, you jeeeerk!”

“After all this time giving in to her whims, I’m finally going to seize control back from Mai!” Reo cries.

As luck would have it, it just happens to be summer vacation, and Reo smirks at the thought that Mai’s obnoxious little fans won’t be able to get at her… But come summer break, Mai gets stuck watching her little siblings, and Reo’s hopes are dashed as her plans fly out the window.

But after Mai cancels her trip to visit her family in the country, could this sudden opportunity be their chance to be alone together?! And then it’s smooth sailing as they’re off to Reo’s family vacation home in Karuizawa…?!
