St. Michael Girls’ School announced a music album titled Party Time! in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of A Kiss For The Petals on 26 December 2016. Advance sales began at Comiket 91 from 29-31 December 2016, and general release is scheduled for 22 February 2017. An fluffy blanket with the cover artwork is also available as a companion piece.
The album consists of opening and ending themes, a new song featuring most of the core cast, and spoken tracks by Manazuru Kou, voice of Houraisen Rena, regarding the radio shows Reo-ppoi Radio and Yuricycle Radio. A video promoting the album, featuring the track “Thanks To You ~Love Is All Days!~”, includes greetings by the cast of Snow White’s Knight. However, Takako is absent, as her voice actress, Azuma Yui, retired from voice acting on 31 December 2015.
Update 30 January 2017: An image of the front and back cover art was published by St. Michael Girls’ School, showing the casts of The New Generation and the Angel series on the reverse in chibi form.
Customers who purchased an advance copy from Comiket 91 without this cover are invited to contact [email protected] with a photograph of their disc and a shipping address to receive one free of charge.
Three promotional events are scheduled for the full release on 22 February:
- Curry Party!: Soup Curry Kamui, a specialty cafe in Akihabara, from 5-14 February
- Taiwan Party!: Fancy Frontier 29, the largest anime convention in Taiwan, from 11-12 February; this is A Kiss For The Petals‘ first official promotional event outside of Japan, excluding MangaGamer license announcements
- Collaboration Cafe Party!: JAM Akihabara, where a themed cafe was held in December 2016, from 14-23 February
The album and blanket will be available for purchase at Fancy Frontier 29 and JAM Akihabara. In the event that the album and blanket sell out at these events, prior to the general release, a solo performance of “Thanks To You ~Love Is All Days!~” by Manazuru Kou as Houraisen Rena will be released.
Soup Curry Kamui posted an image in the style of the Bikkuriman foil stickers to promote their event, which will be available in limited supply as a free gift to customers. The sticker name is the cafe, Soup Curry Kamui.
