As part of their pre-Anime Expo updates, Mangagamer has opened up pre-orders for the first chapter of minori’s Supipara (2012). Which comes with the title “Spring Has Come!”. It’s also part of the minori fund-raising project, which means that sales for the game will contribute to the big pool meant to fund the release of further Supipara chapters. At of this moment, the page reflects that roughly 155K has been collected so far, and we’re about 45K away from funding chapter 02.
Story (From Mangagamer)
Yukinari Sanada, has returned to his hometown in Kanagawa Prefecture, Kamakura City, for the first time in seven years, and is greeted by his older cousin, Sakura Narumi (complete with maid outfit). He wanted to live in peace, but his life at the academy placed on the coastlands becomes bustling and brilliant while surrounded by a lineup of members with booming personalities like Hotaru Amano, the sharp tongued, half-Japanese beauty, and Alice Kamishiro, the lazy witch who loves modern-science and mail-orders.
Eventually, our protagonist is coaxed into joining the action committee for the academy’s traditional beauty contest by his close friend. He interacts with the heroines participating in this contest who are cute but each have an idiosyncrasy or two. Fun events (with their own difficulties) pop up again and again. Your story with “her” about smiles, peace, passion, and love, all while borrowing the power of a witch, is about to begin!
Price & release date
Pre-orders are currently available for $13,45 at Mangagamer’s site here. The release date is set to Jul 2016.
