But will the two be able to stay together when secrets leak out and egos are at stake?

Whew! We finally finished this kinetic novel..... two weeks after the Yuri Game Jam 2019 has ended... A new record...
Due to our busy schedules, we were unable to release this by the due date of Yuri Game Jam 2019, but we still wanted to make it in even if it meant being late!!
This year's story is a little more adventurous kind of, though it still packs the same cheesiness as our previous entries. At first we wanted an absolutely ridiculous plot and literally make a joke game. However, it ended up being tamer than what we envisioned. Due to the lack of time to work on this game, the game might be lackluster, we sincerely apologize for that if you find it so! We are so sorry if you find that it's a downgrade from our 2018 kinetic novel ; n ; As previously mentioned, this started off with a very ludicrous plot! But due to old habits, it ended up being cheesy and fluffy, our specialty!
With all that said, we do still hope you enjoy this year's kinetic novel! And please don't hesitate to leave feedback! :)

I was expecting nothing but this was actually a fun ride and I hope you have a nice time with your other projects (And +18 scene when?)
Haha thank you! Glad to hear that you enjoyed it in the end :' )
Ah this is the very first game I played made by TeamANPIM. It is the art that attracted me to download your games (idk why but the art kinda reminded me of FLOWERS, a Japanese yuri game series aka my fav), and all of a sudden, 有中文了！Thank you Tomomi-san!
The opening was very straightforward, something like "Are you a lesbian? Come on I know you are a lesbian and I'm a lesbian too.
Marry me Be my gf!" A bit of nonsense at the beginning, and then everything just goes -- SUPER CUTE *SCREAMING*!!! 5 stars!
I love FLOWERS too! Unfortunately I haven't finished Autumn and Winter yet, but one day... Funnily enough, Team ANPIM's name was from a line in the game when I was playing it with a mediocre machine translator LOL. I'm super thankful that this game got a Chinese version for international fans to fully enjoy! Thank you for enjoying the game and liking the art too! 谢谢!!
I was wondering if you'd be interested in having your game localized to French? I'm looking to expand my translation portfolio and wlw games are very important to me, so I'd be more than happy to work on translating your game (for free ofc!!) Let me know if you'd be interested!
I want to introduce the game to friends who have macs, and I realize that your game is not without Chinese mac version.XD
Hi sorry, we're currently working on it! We'll have the mac version as soon as possible!
Hello! Good news! The mac version is now uploaded! :)
Hey! It's my first time playing one of your visual novels, I'm on somewhat of a binge for them recently. I have to say, I really enjoyed this. The characters are compelling, even if there's really only two of them who matter to the story. Part of me likes to believe this is an advantage, though, as it makes the plot easier to follow without much interruption from other characters. It's very focused, I feel, and it really made my day to just... play it through. Looking forward to trying your other titles in future. Keep up the good work.
Thank you! Comments like these always make my day <3 Hope you enjoy our other games just as much as you did this one! :)
Do your other games not support Chinese? I really enjoy your game. I love the gender discussion in your game, which is not available in many Chinese and Japanese ACG games, and they do it pretty poorly.
Unfortunately, our other games are not yet available in Chinese :( Because we're a small group, it's hard to find people to translate for us. We were only lucky enough to have someone offer to translate for free, but they're really busy. Hopefully they will be able to translate our other games in the future! Thank you for enjoying our game!
If Im available I'll try translating your games^^
Just finished it and all I can say is wow, the art, the story, everything is just so beautiful, I loved every second of this. I cried, I laughed, I worried, I got really immersed into the story, it was just so touching and heartwarming. My poor little lesbian heart. Gosh, thank you so much for such a wonderful experience <3, this is one of my favourite vn's ever from now on.
Aaaah thank you so much!!! So happy that you enjoyed our game! Honored to have it as one of your favorite vns ever!!! wooo!!!!
Per-goddamn-fection. I love every part of this. You did a great job with this! I'll watch your career with great interest.
Really Nice short story and like the other say, really nice art.
Thanks for your creation !
i love the art and i feel like my gayness level has once levelled up , not like i care tho , i like being gay xD anyways i feel relatable to Hinata
a d o r a b l e
great art and great game!
I've been looking for yuri visual novels to satisfy my lesbian needs for cannon wlw games and the story is just AHHHH in the best way possible. Loved every second!
Thank you for enjoying our game! Hope you'll be able to play our other ones as well! :)
its so cute!!! thank you for creating this. aaahhh as a useless pan girl i can really relate to our dear mc Hinata xD your writing is a style i really like <3
Thank you very much!! I can also relate to our useless lesbian Hinata LOOOOLL Now if only a cute girl will come up to me and tell me to be their girlfriend :'( Thank you again for playing our game and hope you enjoy our others if you plan on playing the rest! <3
cute game! im pansexual myself and relate to hinata. 10/10 ^^
Hi it's me again!! After I made the video I actually replayed the game a few times because I like it so much and can't stop thinking about it!! I'm a member of a game translation studio called Yuriatelier, and the others asked if I had any recommanded games to translate into Chinese. So I'd like to ask for your permisson to translate this game! If there are any concerns, we totally understand and respect your decision!
Oh my goodness yes!!! OF COURSE!!!! Feel free to message us on twitter @Team_ANPIM, and we can go through the details there! Let me know if you'd prefer another method of contact though!
I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this story, but it turned out to be really cute! And as a useless lesbian myself, I found Hinata to be very relatable. Thanks! <3
Haha, super happy that you liked the story in the end! Thank you for playing our game! I'm sure a lot of us can relate to Hinata (me included LOOL)
WOWOWOWW!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE TRANSLATED PLAYTHROUGH, YOU'RE AMAZING!! 你真的很厉害欸！！！辛苦了！！ Super happy that you enjoyed our game! <3 Thank you so much for taking the time to do the oral translation! :)
Also, the orange-haired math teacher might look familiar if you do play one of our other games ;)
Edit: I've watched some parts of your playthrough (I'll probably watch it all tomorrow) and it's hilarious! I love it, and your translations are perfect! :D
!!!!!! I totally did not expect you to understand what I'm saying so I'm really embarassed now/////// I just finished Sensei's game today and the video should be up before tomorrow!! Thank you for watching the video I'm so excited to know that you like it!!!!!!!!!!! And again I really like your games!!
LOL, no, don't be embarrassed! It's interesting and fun to hear people's reactions while they're playing and it's not often that we are able to do so, so thank you! I'll share your videos with some of my Chinese friends as well, since they've been wanting to play but can't because of the language barrier. Thank you very much again for the oral translations, and thank you for enjoying the games! :)
For some reason I can't play the game, every time I click on the application file and try to open the game it does absolutely nothing, I would really love to play the game, but I don't know how to fix this problem. I could probably say that it isn't the game's fault, but I don't really know since this has never happened to me before when I have downloaded other games on Itch.io, so I don't really know what is causing this to happen. I should mention that I am using window's 10.
Oh hmm... it might have something to do with your antivirus or firewall. We're going to try looking into it so it doesn't happen for future games, but we're not too sure if we can fix it for this one. Super sorry for the inconvenience! :( But yeah, check if your antivirus or firewall is blocking the application, that's the first thing that comes to mind when stuff like this happens :\
ok so pretty but y the title so long hehe
i cant download it on windows 10 for some reason, which is a shame because this honestly looks like such a cute game :(
Oh hmmm, that's weird... I just tried it on my own system that's running Windows 10 and it downloaded fine. Hmmmmmmmmm, what kind of error shows up? Or is the download simply not starting at all? Try clicking on that link there on the download page and enable alternate download methods, I've never tried it before, but it might work!
Either says download error, forbidden or it just doesn't load so I played it on my friend's laptop.
GREAT GAME BY THE WAY!
I don't know how you guys managed to fit so much emotion in an hour, I love it so much :D
Aw man, I'm so sorry it didn't work on your computer! Thanks for giving it another shot and trying it on your friend's laptop!! And thank you so much for your kind review, super happy that you enjoyed the game in the end <3
Does anyone know where the Title screen's music is from or is. I've been trying to look for it and im struggling, cause i really love it
On the subject of the VN/game i came in not expecting too much, and i came away with a genuinely heartwarming and emotional story that i binged incredibly quickly. The characters where lovable and i genuinely cared for the two leads and their slow build up of their relationship with an ending that left me genuinely happy and drama that felt natural and not forced, and served to push both characters forward. It was literally perfect, i cannot think of a single flaw in this game/VN
Thank you so much for your kind words about the game!!! Aaaah!!!!!!!!! We really appreciate the support and love, and we're super glad you enjoyed it fully <3! It makes us super happy to hear that our characters can have that much of an impact!!
As for the title track, I think I manually sped up this royalty free track: http://musicmaterial.jpn.org/new_music/tomorrow.htm
If you want the sped up version, it's here: https://sta.sh/0r3glbcr7ka (I hope the link works, but let me know if it doesn't!) :)
This was so sweet and heartwarming to read. I love how teasing Hana is and that Hinata occasionally turns the tables on her with it. I'll definitely be checking out other releases.
The story is just PERFECT. Every single words really make up the story. Even though the game is not too long, it feels like you've been reading their stories for hours. Their story is really touching and really gave me a comfortable feeling. Thank you so much for making such a wonderful game. Even tho I'm not gay, I guess I would support it. :D
I just played this game and it really got me I really really like the story line it was really well made I totally recommend😌👍🏾
Hello! I recently just finished playing the game, and i don't think i have ever been this amazed by a Visual Novel. I play a lot of Visual Novels often, but this one hit me a certain way. Maybe because the fact that i am a desperate lesbian myself but we do not talk about that-
Although some parts irked me, i have completely fallen in love with this VN. So i must ask, is there any place that i may be able to send Fanart to you? Or somewhere where you would be able to see it.
My apologies if it's already written somewhere or somebody has already asked this, i made an account specifically so i could ask this question and i went through some comments, i'm not very knowledgable about this site, either.
(or if anyone could tell me thatd be great too)
Thank you so much for the support! <3 We're super glad you liked it and even have given it such a high praise ; u ; THANK YOU!!
As for fanart, you can post it on twitter and @ us at @Team_ANPIM :D We would love to see your art!! <3 Or if you don't have a twitter, I believe copy and pasting a photo onto the comment section here works as well if I remember correctly.
Thank you so much again, and we're looking forward to seeing your amazing art!!! WOO!!!
i think it broken because not let me save but I saw a walkthrough of game and I love it
make more game u good
Oh I'm so sorry that happened! I just tried it myself and it seemed to have saved fine, so I'm not too sure what the issue here is :( But thank you for trying and watching a playthrough! Thank you for the support! :)
BEST VISUAL NOVEL I HAVE EVER 'PLAYED'!
THE STORY- THE CHARACTERS- THE SOUNDTRACK- THE ART STYLE- THE DIALOGUE
-I LAUGHED, I SMILED, I GOT WORRIED, I TEARED UP, I FELL IN LOVE
thank you sm for creating this amazing visual novel !
really cool game , i enjoyed playing it <33
I've played every of your yuri VNs, and I love this one most. So cute and sweeeeet!
(Why there's no lesbian around me
This was so cute. I absolutely adored this story! I enjoyed this so much and am so happy with how it ended. The writing and the artwork were so beautiful. I can't wait to see more like this!
Thank you so much for your kind words! <3 There's bound to be more cheesy and fluffy yuri to come! :')
Beautiful story! Absolutely amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed every line! I laughed, I cried, and felt totally attached to both of these characters. This is definitely in my top 5 of Visual novels and I have played over 50 of them. I would love a sequel from the time they went to college. I love cheesy and fluffy lesbian visual novels!
It's super reassuring to hear that you loved the story! This one turned out a lot better than I expected, and I'm super honored that this sits in your top 5!!
So cute, its just too bad this isnt a reality for me tho lmao(;´༎ຶٹ༎ຶ`)
good story and art :) i like this game :)
Thank you so much for this vn, man I'm shocked I didn't get diabetes 😆
Just loved it!!!
Ahem, CAN WE GET R-18 SOON?! *puppy eyes*😚😜
I've been trying to download this and it either keeps saying it's unavailable (or my firewall blocks the connection), or the download just doesn't start. Is there a direct link to download it like on a Patreon page or something instead?
Why does it gotta be so cute !?! >-<
