The latest in the _Petals_ series, the short story, “Michael’s Villainess,” is currently being serialized on Pixiv~♡
Today, we’ll be giving you a synopsis, as well as introducing our protagonist, Kurara.
*You can read the story here♡
“A Kiss For The Petals – Michael’s… Villainess?!”
I used to be a 29-year-old office lady who loved yuri, but somehow I suddenly found myself in the Petals universe…
Now, I’ve been reincarnated as a St. Michael’s student?!
“Ahh?! It’s Yuuna-sama and Mai-san… and over there’s Kaede-chan♡”
I was in a frenzy over seeing all the characters I admired…
But then I realized I was in the body of Inatori Kurara, the character introduced in the latest Petals work, “A Pair of Strangers.” That’s right… Kurara was the one who teased and bullied our heroines until she was ultimately thrown out of St. Michael’s…
She was the villainess?!
“St. Michael’s students have a ‘yuri backstage pass’…”
“There’s no way I’ll let myself be thrown out of this paradise!”
A first year student at the Saint Michael Girls’ School junior high facility, a so-called “pure” Michael’s girl, having attended since kindergarten.
Her true identity is… a 29-year-old office lady who loves yuri, reincarnated(?) into the Petals universe, and presently vowing to “raise her popularity!” by being helpful and studying hard, in the hope that she can somehow avert the story’s ending where Kurara is expelled from St. Michael’s.
As a hardcore yuri fan, she’s particularly fired up about collecting (spying on) each couple’s yuri scenes.
As of this writing, the work mentioned in the synopsis, “A Pair of Strangers,” is currently a fictional work for the novel. Whether it is the title of an actual upcoming product is yet to be determined.
There have not yet been any announcements regarding visual novels featuring Kurara or other characters illustrated by Takanobu, including Noel and Takai Sakura. However, it should be noted that the visual novel A Kiss For The Petals – Sweet Melting Kisses was first published as a web novel and later adapted into a full product, eventually to be integrated into the storylines of the other main couples in Maidens of Michael. This is only speculation and is to be treated as such until further information is made available. Furthermore, Kurara shares a family name with Inatori Akira (稲取晶) from the Angel subseries; relations between them, if any, are currently unknown.
