Sapphic story of a romance that begins with blackmail

ツユチルレター 〜海と栞に雨音を〜

Story

The prestigious private girls' school, Kikyou Academy, educates young ladies from elementary age to university. With cell phones forbidden on school grounds, letter writing is a pastime for many of the girls. One day, Shiori Minato is asked out by an older girl she doesn't know--Mikoto Kurahashi. Shiori: "She's confessing to me... But why does she look so angry?" Still, she says yes, thinking of it as an opportunity to build something between them.

One day, popular student Mikoto Kurahashi receives a blackmail letter, threatening to harm her sister, Yumi Kurahashi, unless she asks out a first-year student named Shiori Minato. At first, Mikoto thinks it's a prank--until Yumi gets hurt. So, she asks Shiori out in order to protect her sister. Mikoto: "Was so she desperate to date me that she'd resort to blackmail?" Mikoto starts dating Shiori believing her to be the blackmailer. At the same time, Shiori struggles to get Mikoto to engage with her. It's June in Kamakura, and the hydrangeas are blooming. Two girls are brought together, their relationship manipulated by blackmail. And so begins their bittersweet story...

Stage

Kikyou Women's Academy

A private girls' academy that educates students from elementary school through to university. The campus is situated atop a hill about fifteen minutes from Kamakura Station. The academy has strict rules its students must abide by, and cell phones are forbidden on school grounds. Consequently, letters are still used as a form of communication, and the girls use their shoe boxes in the entrance hall as letter boxes. Students who attend the school from elementary age through to university are expected to leave as perfect examples of well-educated young ladies.

Kamakura

An ancient city steeped in history, popular today as a tourist spot. Famed for its hydrangeas, June sees the city streets awash in blue and purple flowers. Close to the sea, the Enoshima Electric Railway line running from Kamakura to Fujisawa offers stunning views of the ocean.

Character

Shiori Minato

CV:Mai Kadowaki

Class: Chrysanthemum, First Year Birthday: May 19 Blood type: A Club Affiliation: Sewing Club

A quiet, gentle, nondescript girl. However, she's quick-thinking and has a strong sense of self. She enjoys sewing and crocheting, and has a tendency to get lost in her own little world. When Mikoto asks her out, she senses something guarded about her that intrigues her. Although she doesn't understand Mikoto's true intentions, she decides to do her best to make things work between them. Aoi seems to like her and often talks to her, but she doesn't know what her intentions might be, either.

Mikoto Kurahashi

CV:Reo Kurachi

Class: Camellia, Second Year Birthday: August 11 Blood type: AB Club Affiliation: None

One of the prettiest and most popular girls in school. She receives a lot of love letters, but dislikes how many people ask her out based on her looks alone. Cool and aloof, she prefers to be on her own, and isn't often found hanging out with other girls. She cares deeply for her sickly younger sister, Yumi, and has always felt a strong duty to protect her. However, she herself seems to rely on Yumi in some ways. She starts dating Shiori in order to keep Yumi safe, despite suspecting that Shiori is her blackmailer.

Yumi Kurahashi

CV:Sawa Haruoka

Class: Lily, First Year Birthday: March 15 Blood type: AB Club Affiliation: None

Mikoto's younger sister. She's been sick from a very young age. When at school, she spends most of her time in Infirmary Room 2, studying on her own, although she's often absent from school altogether due to hospitalizations and appointments. Since no one else spends as much time in the infirmary as she does, she treats the room as her own, decorating it with her personal things. She usually has her nose in a book and, having had to grapple with her own mortality, has a more mature personality than her elder sister and a more philosophical outlook on life.

Shori's good friend and classmate, she's a kind and caring girl with a bubbly personality and a penchant for gossip. She puts others before herself and is a late bloomer when it comes to romance. As Yumi's confidante, she sometimes visits her in the infirmary and delivers letters on her behalf.

A tomboyish girl who's friends with Mikoto. She doesn't like to hang around in big groups, making her and Mikoto a well-matched pair.

Still, she hates when people assume she knows everything that's going on.
