Rikka-Sayuki Theater (夏雪劇場 Natsuyuki Gekijou) is a 10-episode video series released by Yurin Yurin between November 2013 and January 2014 to promote the release of A Kiss For The Petals – Snow White’s Knight. These videos take place some time during the middle of the visual novel; their canonical status is unclear.
The English translation has been produced in collaboration with Yuri Project and edited to include a visual novel-style message window. English and Japanese subtitles are available, both of which mimic the text of the visual novel.
This translation is available as a direct download, torrent, and as a compilation video on YouTube.
There is a double meaning to the Japanese title. The word 夏雪natsuyuki is comprised of the second characters in Rikka and Sayuki’s names written as kanji, 六夏 and 沙雪. However, the Japanese name for the previous mini-drama, Chiaki-Ringo Theater, used the first components of each character’s name, not the ends. Read literally, natsuyuki means “summer snow”, which alludes to the themes of the visual novel Snow White’s Knight. An alternate name for this series could therefore be “Summer Snow Theater”, but I’ve elected to follow the pattern set by the previous mini-drama series.
