Tenbin wa Hana to Asobu ch2.

Tenbin wa Hana to Asobu (It Dances With Flowers)
Volume 1 Chapter 2

Download v1 ch2, Mediafire, Rapidshare

Translator: TsundereYuriko, Editor: Dolor, Scans: Audio Erotica
Age Rating: teen and up
Genre: Shoujo Ai, genderbender

Starting with chapter 2, we learn that Shuu is genderless, and can become either a male or female on her 18th birthday. Also, vampire. Upon learning this, Youko readily offers help in keeping Shuu's secrets. But how far will Youko go?
Manga Updates page.

I know what some of you may be thinking after reading this chapter: "OMG NOT YURI WTF DO YOU HAS TACOS FOR BRAINZ YURKO?"
Am I right?
Ok, so with the genderless thing, it is borderline Shoujo-ai. I believe we also never find out what Shuu becomes. But I am translating this work because I like the story. Don't bash it because it just doesn't fit the genre exactly. If you are a yuri purist, then by all means, just skip it and try out something else. But if you can enjoy it for what it is, then please, feel free to read it.
After all, things like Simoun and Kashimashi don't fit the genre either, but they're still great stories, right?


  1. Sorry, but I can't see how a relationship between a girl and a *genderless* vampire could qualify as yuri.
    Isn't yuri supposed to be between two FEMALE beings?
    This series is as yuri as it is het, since the vampire is NOT a girl and could easily become a boy in the near future.

  2. I like it very much..Shuu kinda lonely even though she hv a lot people adore her...Thanks for the hard work....Fyee

  3. Well, I think it's ok to label it as shoujo-ai, at least for the time being. I mean, this is what gender bender stuff is all about - confusion:P .

    Thanks for the hard work, it's unusual and fun to read:) *Hopes for more*

  4. thanks a lot
    shuu is a real tsundere 8-}

  5. @first anon: Read my disclaimer. I wrote it just for you.
    @Everyone else above: Glad you're enjoying the story!

  6. Thx for the work, and yes, I read stories for the stories, not exclusively for the yuri. To me, yuri doesn't make a story automatically good (though I may be more lenient because of the lack of yuri overall), and likewise, lack of yuri doesn't mean it will be bad. I think it's a good thing you are not closely restricted by labels like het/yuri, it has more potential for good things this way.

  7. @Yuriko
    I'm the 1st anon, and I wanted to point out that I never said that the series is not good or anything.

    Do you see any "bashing" in my post?
    Please, don't be unfair and read better, because I've just said that, for the reasons I've explained ("yuri" meaning relationship between two *girls*), I don't think the series can be considered yuri as you said.

    I never said anything about the quality of the story, or something like "not yuri = not good", so I don't see why you have to be so bitter towards me.

  8. Mmmmm! Tacos for brains... you know I do eat tacos de cabeza for breakfast every once in a while when I’m in Mexico, but enough about my feeding habits and on to Shuu’s. Genderless though “it” may be, “it’s” attending an all-girls school and the relationship that is developing now between Shuu and Youko is firmly in the girl x girl zone. Sure, Shuu may not have a clit but she doesn’t have a dick either! If that squicks you then leave your 1 comment of gender-rage and run along. (And yes, anon your post came off as complaining about why TY is even scanlating this at all since to you it is NOT yuri.)

    I, for one, am enjoying the gender neutral, tsundere vampire and her new BFF food source!

    My thanks to Dolor-san & Tsundere Yuriko-sensei for the new chapter!

  9. @1st Anon
    I don't see any bitterness going on, they were just simply telling you they had a disclaimer written to answer your question.
    Perhaps you shouldn't take it so seriously.
    It's just a label after all.

  10. @anon1: "I don't see any bitterness going on, they were just simply telling you they had a disclaimer written to answer your question."
    Anon1, Chasuu's thoughts are mine exactly. Though Audio Erotica may have a believable viewpoint, and I did at first find your comment mildly against my release, I felt that you made a very important point, which is why I put up the "non 'yuri' disclaimer". I never meant any bashing or anything, and I am sorry if I wrote in such a way to make you feel that. I put up the disclaimer to avoid any more confusion. It is my own fault for not having the foresight to put up the disclaimer, in case you could have avoided something you know you would have not liked beforehand. I will try to be more careful in the future, and I mean that.
    I should have been more clear. I'm sorry if you are hurt, I never meant it in a hurtful way. I say again: you raised a very important point, and I followed through with it. Some people may not want to read a genderbender story, which is why the disclaimer stays there.

    @Chasuu: Thanks for giving me the exact words I needed.

    @AudioErotica: It is a girl x girl scene. And remember everyone, Youko's admiration for Shuu began the very second she saw her, when Youko assumed Shuu was female. There are plenty of other moments in the book too where we see similar cases of people liking Shuu assuming she is female, as we will see in chapter 4. Even if it is a one way psychological yuri affection, (confusing as it is) then I warrant that I can keep the Shoujo-Ai tag.

    @Everyone else: Thank you for your comments.

    @Anon1 again: I'm sorry! I mean you no ill will, anon1! Please forgive me.

  11. well... whatever if it's shoujo ai or not... or even genderless... welll.. as i said whatever... what i have to say is I liked this history very much and Tsundere is doing a great work as always... This mangá is the one i'm likin the most from all u'r translatin (well.. candy boy also xD)...
    I'm glad ur doing it
    Thank you very much..
    see u in next release

  12. Thanks for the second chapter, Yuriko. I just hope that Shuu doesn't have to think that it must become male to love Youko.

  13. Thank for the release, this series 's very promising

    About whether this series a yuri or not, it's yuri....BECAUSE I SAY SO *muhahahhaha*.

    ... and to keep the yuri spirit, let pray Shuu will keep sucking more of Youko [s]body fluid[/s] blood ^////^

  14. Thank you..i really love this manga. Since Shuu like to drink Youko blod than she will turn to female when she is 18.

  15. Currently Shuu doesn't fit into any gender but at the rate she keeps drinking Youko's blood she will become a female. Plus she practically dresses as a girl.

    I think there is a 2nd volume based on what I've read on Okazu's blog site.

    Looking forward to more chapters...thank you.


  16. There are two volumes, and I intend to translate both. I'm almost done translating the first one already.
    I will tell you this, Shuu and Youko partly discuss the gender-age-18 thing in chapter 5.
    I haven't read 6 or anything beyond that yet, so I couldn't tell you what to expect beyond 5! I'm just as much in suspense as you guys are.

  17. Story gets brownie points for straight out stating "this isn't your regular vampires here", but you know I can't wrap my head around that 18 thing. That's a *socially and legally* important turning point in most countries, sure, but it ain't got jack to do with anything biological... I mean inasmuch Momma Nature cares people are "adults" by the point they can start reproducing, and the exact point of that varies quite a bit by individual but is generally reached several years earlier. And certainly not according to some kind of precise and predictable schedule...
    ...what do you mean, "digress"? =3=
    Anyways, 's a nice enough story. Keep 'em coming.

  18. Thanks a lot for new chapter
    I'm loving this manga.

  19. @Yuriko
    You're very welcome!
    Keep up the great work.
    I'm really looking forward to the rest of this one.

  20. this is great!
    btw where can i find more manga raws?

  21. thanks for the chapter 2
    please continue this manga
    i will wait it.
