On 10 October 2013, Yurin Yurin published an “About” page giving an overview of the entire A Kiss For The Petals franchise, as well as information on St. Michael’s Academy for Girls. These pages have been translated by Ralen.
What is “A Kiss For The Petals”?
A lovey-dovey, extremely dirty, romantic comedy full of yuri goodness♪
It’s a yuri series distributed by Fuguriya, a circle specializing in yuri.
Harems of female protagonists, sex toys simulating male genitals, dick-girl transformations, gender bending, and entanglements with males, to say nothing of grotesque depictions of bodily fluids or depressing plot developments, are all completely absent. Its distinguishing characteristic is its portrayal of sexy, romantic relationships between girls. Its appeal isn’t just cute girls having sex, but in the fun, lighthearted depiction of couples going out on dates and stealing kisses in school.
October 2006 saw the distribution of the first release, titled A Kiss For The Petals, and since that time the total number of released yuri-only products has grown to:
- 10 games
- 12 drama CDs
- 3 radio DVDs
- 3 music/VA CDs
- 15 short stories
There’s also Reo-ppoi Radio, a wildly popular web radio series hosted by Anzu Hana, the voice behind fan-favorite character Kawamura Reo!

The following is the translation of the information page on St. Michael’s Academy for Girls. However, there appears to be a contradiction regarding the era in which the school was founded according to Fuguriya and Yurin Yurin. A Kiss For The Petals – Sweet Enchanting Kisses states the St. Michael’s was founded in the Meiji period, while later releases from Fuguriya, such as A Kiss For The Petals – Dyed with an Angel’s Petals, state that it was founded in the Taishō period. Tweets by Fuguriya on 4 January 2016 clarified that the Meiji period is the intended time period.
Saint Michael’s Academy for Girls
The school is formally known as St. Michael’s Academy for Girls, or St. Michael’s for short.
A large-scale private educational institution, it was originally founded in the early Meiji period for the upbringing of young ladies of nobility.
With an escalator program comprised of kindergarten, elementary, middle school, and high school departments, it’s what you might call a prep school for girls.
*Mid-program admissions are accepted, but examinations are required.
The school teaches Catholic humanitarianism at its core, and it’s common to find the sisters mingled among the regular teachers, having taken up the mantle of teachers themselves.
Following the tradition of “Good wives, good mothers,” there is a particular emphasis on lessons and practical training in the so-called “domestic sciences.”
*Of course there are the fundamentals like cooking and sewing, but training is also offered in things like making soap out of leftover oil, or cutting children’s hair (what’s known as the “Mama cut.”)
However, it’s not as though there are no male instructors. There just aren’t any young male instructors at present.
In addition to the high school department, there’s a home economics junior college, a theology department, and a nursing school, with the nursing school cooperating with the adjacent Saint Michael’s General Hospital in hands-on learning.
Areas of the campus include:
- Tree-lined path
- Rear garden gazebo
- Ancillary branch’s central courtyard
- Central courtyard
- Nursing school classroom
- Nursing school practical room
