Pickup!Solid yuri nukige

I admit, this game isn't an outstanding visual novel; the story is fairly plain and it does feel like a doujin project in some technical aspects, like the fact that the paper dolls don't have many different poses and the BGM is forgettable. That said, it's very good as a yuri eroge, and it fulfills its purpose of creating a fun fantasy for ~5 hours. Unlike some nukige, SonoHana doesn't feel hollow, and despite the amount of ero-scenes, it doesn't feel like porn. Everything in the game is tasteful - even the kinky stuff - and the dialogue is extremely entertaining to fans of the yuri subgenre. Above all, SonoHana is a great yuri nukige that embodies the ideal of schoolgirls in love, and the sex is as enticing as it is pure and sweet.

Notable facts: a fan translation of this game is available, which is what allowed me to play it. Also, you might recognize the illustrator, Peco, as the artist of a couple other eroge and the light novel series "Mayoi Neko Overrun" which was adapted into an anime in 2010.

Girls can have sex too... without the help of men.

OK, let's be clear there - I think that two girls making out and having sex is one of the most beautiful sight one can have the honor of seeing. That said I feel there are way too few English language games dealing with that concept. So, saying that I was eagerly waiting for Count Pacula's translation wouldn't be a lie.
First thing I noticed was that "Sono Hanabira" looked good. I really liked the art from the very beginning and dove right into it. This is a mostly linear visual novel. That might be a turn off for some people but not for me. Sure, choices are there but they only determine if you are going to reach the true ending or end the game prematurely. So what about plot, characters and sex? Well, that is where the game is lacking. Plot is paper thin - it's more or less a collage of random sex escapades betwixt our two lovebirds (I didn't expect anything more from a VN that is basically a nukige). But characters are shallow too. Nanami and Yuna act like typecasts and never break out of it. Admittedly, some of the scenes are quite memorable - i.e. Nanami finding out that Yuna has an affection for her, but there are less of them that one would like.
Now what about sex..? Here is a mixed bag. Some scenes are good, some not so good and some are boring. Truth to be told, they get better in the later part of the game as the writer got into the tracks and that saves the game... for the most part. One of the scenes near the end in the bathroom is even very memorable. (In)famously so if I might so say. But here are only a few such scenes.
In the end the game was kind of disappointing. I would have given it a lower score, but I rose it a bit for the fact this is the only yuri themed game accessible for western players. Final verdict 7/10.
P.S. I couldn't run the game on the Windows XP SP2 machine in Japanese locale. I was only able to play it on a Windows 98SE OS on a virtual machine. Minor annoyance, but a real mystery for me.

Pickup!Well worth the purchase

This has to be one of the better yuri themed games out at this point in time that doesn't also deviate into straight themes.

The art quality is very good with particular attention drawn to the CG and the music is subtle enough to not interfere. The voices also fit the characters well which goes a long way to enhancing the play experience. It's also a good length for the price.

If I was to look for downsides it would probably consist of there being no plot to speak of, which is a shame, as I believe fleshing out the characters could have made it that much better. Also having the choices make more of a difference to the outcome would have been nice.

Pickup!Awesome

The quality of this yuri game is top notch and worth the above average price. This game is easily the best yuri game I've ever seen and I'm very glad I decided to get it. The artwork is phenomenal and the voices fit the mood and game very well. Its a sweet little story of two girls who love each other and passionately make love to each other. What's not to love about that? I highly recommend this game and if you think you might enjoy it or already enjoy it, check out the other two yuri games by fuguriya as well.

Pickup!Amazing

I want to use so many more words to describe this game but all I can come up with is amazing.

This is a lesbian love story. The two main girls are classmates who hit it off very quickly. Being a comedy there are a more than a few embarrassing moments for the girls and some comical glomping.

What stands out the most in my mind is the art. It is spectacular. The group that made this obviously spent their time on it. It looks as good if not better than most much more expensive titles. The second thing you notice is the voice acting. The characters voices match well and there is quite a bit of dialog.

I recommends this title to everyone.
