Light Novel English Translations

Update 14 March 2014: The Comiket 85 bonus novel has been translated.

As a result of Music Box of Memories being prematurely ended, Eden of Xeno has graciously given me permission to release their translations of A Kiss For The Petals light novels freely. Four light novels and eight Comiket bonus short stories were translated as supplementary material for Music Box of Memories for the benefit of readers who do not have access to them, as Music Box of Memories makes frequent references to events only seen in them. They have all been translated by Ralen. He has expressed interest in continuing to translate the remaining light novels. Later translations will be added to this page.

The translations are available in rich-text format (RTF) and PDF. Placeholders for the images in the original light novels have been inserted with references to page numbers from the original light novels. For example, a note reading “[Image on page 12.]” refers to the illustration on page 12 of the original book. I’ve inserted them into the points in the text that best match the images. The covers are also included as they are freely available on Fuguriya’s website.

Anzu Hana Official Website

anzuhana_banner

Anzu Hana opened her own personal website and YouTube channel today, with the assistance of Yurin Yurin. It was announced at her panel at Girls Love Festival 11. At present, the website has little content, with links to the A Kiss For The Petals music CDs released under her name, several other visual novels she was involved in, and an explanation of the origins of the website. Although the majority of the content is related to A Kiss For The Petals, the site will presumably be used for her own interests and other projects. The drawing above is of herself. The YouTube channel currently has no videos and uses the drawing as a placeholder.

Fanart: Reo’s Birthday

Reo's Birthday

The fifth doujinshi by Amanda and Yuri Landim was released to coincide with Reo’s birthday on 22 March. The titular birthday celebration is complicated by the appearance of Eris, who adds herself to Mai and Reo’s itinerary after a mistake on her part. Kuma Ichigoh and I did editing for this release. Kanduki Kamibukuro provided additional support.
