The five remaining A Kiss For The Petals bonus stories from past Comic Markets have been translated into English for Xenocross Volume 4 and the Volume 2-5 compilation. The bonus stories for Comiket 77 and Comiket 81 are already available in volume 4. (Fuguriya did not attend Comiket 79.) As of this writing, Xenocross Volume 4 now includes translations for all Comiket bonus stories. All of these translations have been added at no additional cost. For convenience, the existing bonus story translations are also listed below. The volumes from Comikets 75, 76, 78, 80, and 82 are new. It should also be noted that none of these stories are canon.

Update 17 October 2012: The Comiket 82 story has been translated.
The Comiket 75 story is “A Rowdy Open Air Bath!” This is the first instance where all the main characters (at the time, Nanami, Yuuna, Kaede, Sara, Mai, and Reo) were all gathered in the same place and interacted with each other.
The Comiket 76 story is “‘Just Because it’s a Pajama Party, Who Says We Have to Wear Pajamas?’ Said the Dirty Girl”. Similar to the previous story, this gathers the six Petals characters into a single place.
Enchanting Kisses on a Tropical Island! received a supplemental chapter in Comiket 77′s “The Bud Has Thorns”, which accompanied that light novel’s release. It can be seen as a transition between the prologue and chapter one. All eight characters at the time of its release are present in some form. It was added to Xenocross on 21 June 2012.
“Mai and Reo’s Petals Radio” from Comiket 78 was based on the bonus track from Zutto Issho no Natsu (ずっといっしょの夏 Always Together In Summer)*, the first drama CD featuring them. With some surprise guests and subject matter familiar to fans of all involved, this concept was adapted into Reo-ppoi Radio in January 2011.

Comiket 80′s story has “Nanami and Kaede Brag About Their Girlfriends”. This is the first bonus story that does not feature Mai or Reo. It is also the first time Nanami was seen since Kuchibiru to Kiss de Tsubuyaite (唇とキスで呟いて Whisper With A Kiss)*.
The Comiket 81 story asks, “What if a Yuri Couple from St. Michael’s Bumped into a Senior Couple at an Open Air Bath?” during the light novel Nukumori ni Kurumarete (ぬくもりに包まれて Bathed in Warmth).* This story takes place during that light novel as Mai and Reo encounter Shizuku and Eris during their bath in a public bath house. It was added to Xenocross on 19 July 2012.
The Comiket 82 story features “Kaede, Takako, and Skimpy Swimsuits.” In this story, Kaede and Takako are made to model swimsuits for Sara’s modelling company as Sara and Runa look on. This story bears some thematic resemblance to the end of Our Vacation Together. This is the second story to not feature Mai or Reo. It is also the first to have Runa directly interact with main characters other than Takako.
