This is my opinion and my opinion ONLY!!! Readers may have different opinions as I do. That is fine.
I have decided not to upload videos of Sono Hanabira Amakute Hoshikute Torokeru Chuu (Sweet Enchanting Kisses) and Amakute Otona no Torokeru Chuu (Melting Hot Adult Kiss).
As you guys are aware, I really enjoy the Sono Hanabira series and in my opinion, the characters are great most of the time with the stories also done well. The art style in both the main and the nurse series (I got used to them after a while) are nice to look at. Music and voice acting are also nice to listen to. Most of the time, I don’t even care about the sex scene at all. Interactions between the characters are enjoyable enough.
My views are very liberal when it comes to topics about sex, and I try to be as open-minded as possible. I don’t mind, or rather, I don’t care what kind of things people are into-it’s their choice. That’s why even in some “extreme” scenes in Sono Hanabira (like the infamous bathroom scene in the first Yunna x Nanami game), I just brush it off and continue with the story without thinking twice about it. However, since the series is dealing with some “topics” that are mature, I would like to draw the line where I think is reasonable. In my personal opinion, these two VNs have crossed the line.
To begin with, unlike the other stories, the relationship between Runa and Takako is that of student and her teacher, as well as being lovers. I find this not to be my cup of tea. As a teacher, Takako should have had known that these kind of relationship, if discovered, would be devastating to both her and her student’s future. Yet, at the end of the first game, she still decided that she would carry on with their “forbidden relationship”. To me, as someone who wants to become a teacher in the future, this act sets a bad example and it gives a bad impression of what a teacher is.
Secondly, I would like to talk about the background of their relationship. Runa, in the later parts of the first game, shows that, although she demonstrated maturity within school, she is still emotionally weak since she did not have someone that she can rely on, such as a motherly figure. The only person she had a connection to before meeting Takako was her “always absent” older sister, who also happened to be Takako’s first crush. I think Yi from Listless Ink blog explained this very well.
“Consent is not such a simple thing as “someone going after the other”, especially when children are involved. Consider this analogy: a child is enticed with candy for sexual favours and agrees. That does not constitute consent. Now, if we vary that a little, the same child is enticed with a need for a motherly figure, and is willing to provide sexual favours to whichever adult can provide her with that emotional support. We see that her supposed consent is perhaps not a true consent. (As an aside, that Takako does not even acknowledge this possibility makes her very deplorable.)”
To conclude, people may argue that since this is a work of fiction, these kinds of scenarios are acceptable. Nevertheless if the concept of being a work of fiction justifies anything and everything, then I may have to question the rationality of those people. Being a work of fiction just means that the scenario is made up, but that doesn’t make the scenario appropriate.
These are the main reasons why I have decided not to upload the walkthroughs of Amakute Hoshikute Torokeru Chuu (Sweet Enchanting Kisses) and Amakute Otona no Torokeru Chuu (Melting Hot Adult Kiss). I hope that you guys will understand.
