A Kiss For The Petals – Kaede-chan’s Newlywed Cooking

Private cooking lessons!
Let’s make it sexy with naked aprons♪

Summary:
Sara, who is being kept busy in the modeling industry, is as usual incessantly fawning over Kaede day after day.
Well, it’s not as though Kaede hates looking after her, but she does tend to spoil her.
Be that as it may, Sara is still a girl.  Despite Kaede’s insistence that “You need to know how to cook,” Sara always sweetly bluffs her way through it…

On one such day, Sara learns she has to present a homemade dish on a TV cooking program!
Of course, Sara can’t make so much as a single dish, so she goes crying to Kaede and ends up getting a crash course in cooking…

“Wh- What are you wearing, Sara?!”
“What all newlywed couples wear, of course… A naked apron♪”

Their lovey-dovey cooking is as sweet as always♪

Visual novel: A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael

Update: This title has been licensed by MangaGamer. Please see the announcement post for further updates.

Yurin Yurin opened its website at midnight Japan time on 21 July 2012. The site is twofold: one for Yurin Yurin itself, and another for their first product: A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael (その花びらにくちづけを ミカエルの乙女たち Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Michael no Otome-tachi), which was released on 30 November 2012. (This is a tentatively translated title.) Proxy pass-through is not required for either of these pages for images to load, as is the case with Fuguriya’s website. The site for the new release is not a single page, as with Fuguriya’s works; this new visual novel is much larger than anything Fuguriya has produced.

In anticipation of this release, Yurin Yurin is currently uploading a YouTube mini-drama series entitled Risa-Miya Theater, after the visual novel’s main characters. See my first post for it for more information. Yurin Yurin also posted “countdown voices” featuring very brief voice dramas between each couple for the last 12 days leading to the release. These are no longer available, so I am archiving them at this post along with English translations.

As a reminder, the possibility of an English license for this franchise depends entirely on the success of this first release. If at all possible, please support the developer. Your direct support is now more critical than ever.
Update 18 April 2013: Please see State of Localization for Yurin Yurin Products for updates on this topic.

Update 30 November 2012: A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael is available internationally at J-List. The price is currently $130.00, not including shipping.

Update 4 April 2013: Yurin Yurin has released this visual novel on Gyutto.com at a price of 6,800 yen ($70.60 USD, €54.61 EUR, £46.36 GBP). See this post for buying instructions, which have been verified to work with U.S. credit cards.

Update 29 August 2014: Maidens of Michael is no longer available at J-List. See the Buying Guide for information on alternative places to purchase.

In the event that JAST USA obtains an English license for this release, those who purchase the visual novel from J-List will receive a free download code for the English version, as was the case with My Girlfriend is the President. However, this is entirely dependent on Yurin Yurin’s decision to follow through as there is no guarantee that JAST USA, or anyone else, will be granted a license, regardless of sales.

If you have played this visual novel, feel free to post your opinion of it in the comments, as well as link to reviews on visual novel website, be they positive or negative, but please do not submit spoilers. I will collect them in a future post.
