Okay, so here we go. I hope no one hates me too much after this review…
Episodes: 12, each about 10 minutes long
Genre: Drama, Yuri
Yuma and Hotaru have been best friends since childhood, but after Hotaru gets her first boyfriend, Yuma feels like the two of them are drifting apart. She gets a boyfriend herself, but as things seem to work out more with him, Hotaru starts acting weird, trying all sorts of things with her as “practice” for her slowly building relationship with her boyfriend Takeda.
Since we’re still in the middle of yet another year packed with yuri visual novels, it would be a crime to go without some fresh news for longer than a few weeks. So here we have some pretty damn awesome info for you. Let’s start right away with my personal favorite~
Okay, guys, hold on to your seats because what’s gonna hit you now is the best news ever! So MangaGamer yet again listened to our demands and will translate another Sono Hanabira title for us! Though, that is definitely not the best part of it, since it’s not just going to be any of the numerous SonoHana installments. No, it’s gonna be my personal favorite of all of them, A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael. This one is the first all-star title, featuring the first five couples the game series had to offer, as well as introducing one of my favorites, Miya and Risa.
Having rebelled against the will of God, archangel Lucifer is cast out of heaven, doomed to spend the rest of her days in the pits of Hell. However, there is no way Lucifer would go without a fight, so by the time she arrives in Hell, she’s already made two allies, one being a human girl named Maria Totsuka—who she more or less unwillingly made her immortal slave—as well as the aspiring demon lord of envy, Leviathan. Together with these two, she begins her journey of revenge, challenging all of the seven deadly sins to reach her goal.
Some of you already anticipated this exact outcome, but for others, this comes as a total surprise. For me, I kinda saw it coming, seeing just how much support this work has gotten from the very beginning. It’s also one of the few ongoing ones that besides Citrus—which for obvious reasons wasn’t featured in this tournament—is definitely one of the most popular ones around right now.
Personally, I had a feeling and the hope it would be this awesome kind of non-Japanese vs Japanese kind of finale, and that was actually how things had already turned out in the past few rounds. I just loved seeing your reactions to so many of the awesome and oh so close “fights” that took place this tournament.
Okay guys, it’s finally there, the big finale of this tournament that we’ve all been waiting for.
Yet again, the last round was brutal and there’s no word more fitting for what happened in these past days of voting. It was a very close match in both cases. Pulse only made it with an advantage of a few votes and it seemed to be a very close match for Bloom Into You as well. In the end, I’m glad to see these two showing up as the remaining competitors for the
iron, uh I mean yuri throne, making this the Japanese vs non-Japanese finale that a lot of us has been waiting for.
Here’s to the last week of voting! Have fun, and let the most deserving manga/comic win~
I gotta admit, seeing Girl Friends getting kicked out by Pulse is very surprising, to say the least, but that’s what makes this tournament so interesting! Now it’s a clean 2 vs 2, Japanese vs non-Japanese works. How exciting is that, and who would have thought the non-Japanese works would make it so far?! Just imagine if we got a finale with only Ratana Satis’ works…
It definitely stays interesting! As always, enjoy voting!
