St. Michael Girls’ School Column – The Day-to-Day of Yuri Vol. 5

FB Post

Hello there.

This is A Kiss For The Petals series producer Mi Kara Deta Saba.

Once again, I’ve been given the chance to write about certain day-to-day particulars you become aware of as a yuri game producer.  I hope you’ll enjoy hearing about all the subtle differences between yuri games and male/female romance stories.

“But” We’re Both Girls?

When you’ve been making yuri games as long as I have, you get a lot of recommendations and opinions from Petals fans about series outside of this one.

In fact, some opinions that are more common than you might think are…

  • When the main character keeps excessively repeating “But we’re both girls…”
  • When, during the confession, they make a point of saying “Our sex doesn’t matter.”
  • When, during the story, they throw in random mentions that male/female relationships are the norm…

…There are a surprising number of people who are sick and tired of these sorts of depictions.  Every one of these things denies the naturalness of yuri.

Well, it’s not like I can’t sympathize with the script writers, though.  You try to introduce drama in order to amp up the script, and… that’s just how things turn out.

However, hardcore yuri fans like us know that girls who like girls are the most natural thing in the world.

That’s why, when we see the main characters troubled by those sorts of things, it feels like the work itself is forsaking yuri.

Well, I talk a big game, but as a hardcore yuri fan myself, my hope is just to see more and more different kinds of yuri continue to flood the market.

Well, we’re just about to that point for this time…

May the world overflow with yuri♪
