Sayuki: And my name is Shirakawa Sayuki.  Likewise, I am a freshman at St. Michael’s.  It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
Rikka: Aww, that’s awesome, Sayuki-san!  You just did a perfect job of conveying your graceful charm with class and style.
Sayuki: Goodness, such praise… I’m so delighted, but also so embarrassed… Ahh, you’re too kind to me, Rikka-san!
Rikka: If you want to see just how beautiful Sayuki-san is, just play the game and you’ll all be sure to see for yourselves.  Ahh, you really are incredible, Sayuki-san.
Sayuki: That would be A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight which will be going on sale in just 14 more days.  We’re looking forward to your support!

Rikka: R- Risa-nee!  This is huge!  It’s incredibly major!
Risa: Rikka! What could possibly be so important to get you in such a panic?
Rikka: W- Well, Sayuki-san, she… she made a lunch for me by hand!  And it was full of all my favorite foods!
Risa: Whoa, that is a big deal.  But wait, something even bigger than that is happening!
Rikka: Huh?  What on Earth could be more important than Sayuki-san’s hand-made lunch, Risa-nee?
Risa: A game that features you, and me, and all the other Best Couples, A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight, goes on sale in just 13 more days!

Miya: Ahh, Risa… You’re looking cute as ever today.  You make me want to do all sorts of lovely things to you.
Risa: Arrgh, geeze!!  All you ever do is have your way with me, Miya! Well, I’m not staying quiet anymore!  I’m gonna get you back double!*
Miya: Oh, you’re going to pay me back twofold?  I’m thrilled to hear that, Risa.  Hehe, that makes for two times the lovemaking.
Risa: I, I was just kidding!  I’m not, I’m not really!
Miya: Oh, we can’t have that now.  If you don’t do anything, then I’m just going to have to increase my efforts one hundredfold!*
Risa: Eeee!  When A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight goes on sale in 12 more days I’ll buy twice the copies if you’ll just let me go!

Shizuku: That’s true.  This new environment has been a bountiful source of stimulation for us.
Wh-, Eris!  What are you doing?!
Eris: Hehehe.  I think your body has been developing quite a bit too, Shizuku.  It’s time for a physical.
Shizuku: Wh-, Ahhh!  That tickles, Eris!
Eris: And you can be sure to do a thorough check on my development too, okay?
Shizuku: N- Never mind that!  There are only 10 days until A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight goes on sale!

Takako: Haah… Lately, Runa seems like she’s getting pushier by the day. Haah…
Runa: Sensei, I’m sick of hearing you sigh all the time.  Forget about that and hurry up and get dinner started, would you?
Takako: I’m just not in the mood for that right now… Haah…
Runa: There you go again.  Hmph.  What’s with you today, Sensei?  All you’ve been doing is sighing.
Takako: It’s just, whenever I think about how you’re just going to push me around again in this next game… Haah…
Runa: O- Oh yeah, that’s right!  There are only 10 more days until A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight goes on sale!

Mai: Hey, Reo!  What’re you doing at an important time like this?
Reo: I’m looking online to see what new sweets the department stores have.  They’ve just started selling marrons chocolat.
Mai: We’re about to start selling something way more important than that, Reo!
Reo: Come on, Mai.  There’s nothing new going on sale that I could care more about than… Huh!?
Mai: It’s coming out.  It’s coming out this year.  After nearly a year, a new release is about to go on sale, Reo!

Sara: I can’t wait anymore!  Ahh, why can’t it come out earlier?  I want my new Kaede-chan CD that comes bundled with a handshake ticket!
Kaede: Huh?  You’re looking forward to my new CD?  But you know that was delayed due to various circumstances, right?
Sara: Whaaat?!  No way, I don’t believe it!!  I already ordered 100 copies!  I’ve spent all this time looking forward to getting to shake your hand!  Then what are you looking forward to, Kaede-chan?
Kaede: Isn’t that obvious?  In just eight more days, A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight goes on sale.  Let’s go get it together, Sara.

Yuuna: Nanami, I want to tell you something.  Once I graduate from St. Michael’s, I’ve decided to become a skin diver.*
Nanami: Ba-ba-ba- What on Earth has gotten into you, Yuuna Onee-sama?!  That sounds like some crazy idea you got from watching morning TV soap dramas!
Yuuna: Not at all!  I want to go out and catch sea urchins with my own two hands so I can make bowls of delicious sea urchin rice for my precious Nanami!
Nanami: You really have been watching too many soap dramas… But there’s something even more important than diving in the ocean!  Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten, Onee-sama!
Yuuna: Hmmmmm?  Do you mean about the two of us joining an idol group?
Nanami: We’ve got enough of that with Sara-san and Kaede-sama!  A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight goes on sale in just seven more days, Onee-sama.

Risa: Hey, Miya, what exactly is this?
Miya: Oh, that?  It’s one of those stuffed bears you’re so fond of.  They were selling them in front of the train station, so I bought one for you.
Risa: Th- Thanks…  Hm, but this one’s a little different from the Puchikko Bears in my collection.  It seems kind of sinister, and has kind of a Nobuyo vibe.
Miya: You think so?  I rather prefer this kind.  Right now I can just imagine him saying “You all better buy our game!  U-pu-pu-pu~!”* or something like that.
Risa: M- Miya, put it down!  I think it’s about to self-destruct!
Miya: Hehehehe.  A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight goes on sale in six more days.

Runa: Sensei still isn’t back from shopping yet… Hnnn.  What’s taking her so long?!
Rena: I’m home!  Runa, Takako, I hope you’ve been well.
Runa: Welcome home, Sensei… Wait, I mean Nee-sama?!  What are you doing back in Japan?!
Rena: I had some important business to attend to!  I wanted to see how much my precious students and adorable little sister have developed this past year.
Runa: Nee-sama… Uh, but, how are you planning to see that?
Rena: You’re just going to have to see for yourself in A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight when it goes on sale in five more days.

Eris: Hey, Shizukuuu~ Let me copy your notes~
Shizuku: And why is that my problem?!  It’s your own fault for sleeping during class.
Eris: Aww, but the only reason I was so sleepy is ‘cause I was fooling around with you all last night.  This is half your fault, too, you know.  You should own up to it.
Shizuku: Wh- Wh- What are you talking about?!  Honestly, Eris, you just do whatever you want whenever you want!
Eris: Hehehehe.  I’m just a free spirit like that.  You know this thing between us is just a passing fancy, after all… Just kidding *mwah.*
Shizuku: E- Eris, not here…
Eris: Shizuku… You’re blushing…
Wh- Shizuku?  Where are you going?  A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight goes on sale in just four more days, you know!

Reo: Hey, my mail-ordered snacks are missing!
Mai: My goodness!  This is serious, Reo!
Reo: Hrrr… I’ll bet the victim is among us.
Mai: Well, yeah.  I mean the victim is you, Reo.
Reo: Wait, I messed that up.  I meant the culprit is among us!  One truth prevails!*  You ate them, didn’t you, Mai!

Kaede: Aw, that’s embarrassing… But as long as it’s you, you can stare as much as you like.
Sara: Wow, really?  Are you falling for me all over again?
Kaede: Sara, I couldn’t possibly fall for you any harder than I already have.
Sara: Eeee!  Kaede-chan!
Kaede: Hehehe.  There are only two more days until A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight goes on sale, Sara.

Yuuna: Ahhhh… Hehe… Hehehehe.

Yuuna: Hmm, want me to tell you about it, Nanami?
Nanami: Yeah, of course I do!
Yuuna: Well, you see, I had the most wonderful dream today.  Ahh, just remembering it is making my heart pound!

Sayuki: I don’t even need to think about it, Rikka-san.  Today I want to go to the game store.
Rikka: Huh?  You want to go to the game store?  I didn’t know you played games, Sayuki-san.
