The Day-to-Day of Yuri

Kimishima Aya and Kimishima Ai

Throughout June 2015 in the weeks leading to the release of A Kiss For The Petals – The New Generation!, series producer Mi Kara Deta Saba wrote a three-article series for Getchu titled “The Day-to-Day of Yuri” (百合あるある Yuri Aru Aru), a discussion of the fundamentals of the A Kiss For The Petals series that distinguishes it from other works in the genre, as well as the technical and thematic implications that arise as a result. Ralen has translated these articles for MangaGamer to promote A Kiss For The Petals – Remembering How We Met, which was published throughout eight articles. I consider them essential reading for fans of yuri, as they discuss how even a small number of self-imposed restrictions on content and storytelling can have a profound impact on a project.

The original articles contain a number of images related to The New Generation, both from the visual novel itself and exclusive to the Getchu articles. The former were not republished on MangaGamer, as the articles were repurposed for Remembering How We Met.
