Aya has certainly adjusted to her new home now, but when she was first brought in, she could never gauge the mood, and was constantly stepping on landmines, disrupting the family harmony!
“Every time you opened your mouth, you would say something wrong. Mom ended up looking like she wanted to cry.”

So today, Ai has announced she’s making sweets to make it up to their mother!
But of course she’s never made anything before, so she’s totally dependent on Aya for help…
“Hey, are you going to make them or not? Which is it?” “Aya, you’re so heartless!”
Their frisky yuri cooking has only just begun♪

Product announcement: A Kiss For The Petals – Remembering How We Met

On 24 June 2015, St. Michael Girls’ School hosted a livestream on Niconico to promote the release of A Kiss For The Petals – The New Generation!, which is due for release on 26 June. During that stream, it was announced that the visual novel Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Deatta Omoide no Koro ni (その花びらにくちづけを 出会った頃の思い出に) featuring Risa and Miya will be officially released in English under the name A Kiss For The Petals – Remembering How We Met.

English translation: Sisterly Guidance

Sisterly Guidance

A second short story series promoting A Kiss For The Petals – The New Generation! was launched on 12 June 2015. Sisterly Guidance (姉妹のみちびき Shimai no Michibiki) features the students of the main St. Michael campus giving counsel to the students of the annex facility featured in The New Generation. This marks the first proper crossover between the two main series. The translation by Ralen is hosted on this server as a mirror of the original pages.

The translation is hosted here at http://petalsgarden.axypb.net/trans/newgene/onayami.html

Along with White Lily Memorial, the series will further elaborate on the characters of A Kiss For The Petals – The New Generation! ahead of its release on 26 June. The first story features Aya asking for advice on her sister Ai’s meddling from Mai and Reo. As of this post, the first of two currently available chapters has been translated.

The New Generation! Demo Version

newgene-demo-1 newgene-demo-2

A demo for A Kiss For The Petals – The New Generation! was released on 29 May 2015. I have uploaded to MediaFire for the convenience of non-Japanese readers.

As with the demos of previous visual novels, it contains a short portion of the introduction and excerpts of one love scene from each couple’s individual story. As with the visual novels proper, you will need to use a Japanese locale to run it. You can use AppLocale for this purpose; I recommend this modified version of AppLocale.

White Lily Memorial

On 15 May 2015, St. Michael Girls’ School launched a free short story series titled White Lily Memorial (白百合のメモリアル Shiro Yuri no Memoriaru). The translation by Ralen is hosted on this server as a mirror of the original pages.

The New Generation! Opening Movie and Voice Samples

St. Michael Girls’ School published the opening movie for A Kiss For The Petals – The New Generation! on 21 May 2015, as well as four voice samples for each character on the character information page.

On 15 May, the full voice cast was revealed:

  • Onohara Hazuki: 田中理々 Tanaka Lili (Twitter: @tanakalili)
  • Suou Manami: 椎那天 Shiina Amane (Twitter: @shiina_amane)
  • Kimishima Aya: 柚木サチ Yuzuki Sachi (Twitter: @yuzukisachi)
  • Kimishima Ai: 椿乃なお Tsubakino Nao (Twitter: @tsubakinonao)
  • Takahata Rina: 綾瀬とまり Ayase Tomari
  • Misawa Nagisa: 三日月一花 Mikazuki Ichika

Tanaka Lili is able to communicate in English. I encourage Twitter users to congratulate her and inform her of the series’ international following.

Tsubakino Nao is a known voice actress for extra roles in past visual novels and is now performing in a lead role, similar to Manazuru Kou, who voices Houraisen Rena and extra characters.

One of the standout moments of this video is at 1:17, which shows Manami’s internet persona “MANA”. It has not been mentioned since the initial reveal inDengeki Hime’s December 2014 issue.
