A Kiss For The Petals – My Darling Lover

That cute young girl is still playing queen,
and it’s got her girlfriend Takako twisted up in knots?!

Synopsis:
Runa had really hit it off with the Best Couples from St. Michael’s high school department.
Takako just can’t help her pleasure at seeing Runa mature like this.
But with all the Best Couples hard at work on the Fall cultural festival, Runa, being from the annex facility, is feeling a bit left out…

“Maybe you can spend more time getting involved with girls from your own class.”
“Our school doesn’t have a real cultural festival, it’s just an educational show-and-tell.”
Runa’s passionate drive to shift the tone of the cultural festival has got Takako a little worried…
Will this be a nerve-wracking passionate yuri experience for the both of them?

Reo-ppoi Radio Episode 68 (Updated 12 December 2013)

YouTube user momoiro koneko has uploaded Reo-ppoi Radio 68 on their channel, which was originally uploaded on Niconico on 23 November 2013. A pre-show was released the week prior. Manazuru Kou (Houraisen Rena) guest hosts once again.

The cold open for this show in the first thirty seconds of the video features Anzu Hana and Manazuru Kou discussing the more devoted fans of Sonohana (nicknamed “Mikajo-mates”). I discussed this segment with Tomino Nakiyoshi and Ralen and they gave two interpretations of it, respectively:

  • Kou states that she is so dedicated to the series that she once talked to Greg (me) on Twitter.
  • Kou makes a remark saying that if such a fan were asked about how much they like Sonohana, they could say “I like it so much that I talked to Greg on Twitter.”

Of course, it is quite unusual for this show to discuss my own Twitter activity, especially since I have no recollection of chatting with any cast member myself, on Twitter or otherwise (Reo-ppoi Radio letters notwithstanding). I am currently investigating precisely what she could have meant by this statement. At present I am led to believe that if they are following me, they are doing so in secret, either under an alias or manually. In any case, this statement may be implying that the staff (or at least Manazuru Kou and Anzu Hana) now considers me and/or my Twitter account to be synonymous with the most dedicated fan of A Kiss For The Petals.

Update 12 December 2013: After a thorough examination of my past Twitter activity, I could find no evidence that I have talked with any Sonohana cast members, unwittingly or otherwise. Episodes are normally recorded about a month ahead of their release, so I looked through my record of interactions from October and earlier. I’ve considered that one of my Japanese followers could be one in secret, and while some of them regularly retweet updates from Petals’ Garden, I’ve not had any Japanese Twitter users try to contact me directly for Sonohana discussion. In any case, given my conclusion above, I can only imagine what their response (if any) to my most recent letter will be.

Yuriwhale has published a new Table Turner series, this time featuring Rena, Takako, and Runa. There is currently one page available, seen above. In the artist’s words, there is no speech in these strips, so anyone should be able to understand them. Further pages will be published in the deviantART gallery.

A Kiss For The Petals – Risa-Miya Theater Complete Release

The final version of Risa-Miya Theater is now available as a torrent file. These files are different than the previous releases on this site; all videos have been re-encoded, and the first five episodes have updated translations with quality check from Rika-chama and Virus123. In addition, several episodes have been manually edited to correct flaws in the source material. The individual download links on the previous release pages will be updated for the new versions. The videos on YouTube for episodes 1-5 will be replaced for the new translations; all episodes will be updated to include a link to this page.

Risa-Miya Theater (りさみや劇場 Risa Miya Gekijou) is a video series released by Yurin Yurin on YouTube between November and December of 2012 to promote A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael. Episodes 1-5 take place before Maidens of Michael, and episodes 6-10 take place after. The conclusion of episode 10 can also be seen as a prelude to A Kiss For The Petals – Lovers of the Atelier, the sequel to this visual novel. Despite this, these episodes are otherwise not directly related to the main story and are considered non-canonical. 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.

The English translation of A Kiss For The Petals – Risa-Miya Theater (その花びらにくちづけを りさみや劇場 Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo – Risa Miya Gekijou), in collaboration with Yuri Project, continues with episode 8: Are We Really a Best Couple?

The MKV video file has two subtitle tracks – one including the English translation seen in the YouTube video, and another including the Japanese transcription on which it was based.
