Looking for clues on their missing friend, adventurers stop to help fight the local drought in Winged Cloud’s Sakura Forest Girls 2, a yuri visual novel now available on Steam.
Sakura Forest Girls 2 follows the adventures of Yaya and Aiyana, a pair of girls born into a family of shamans. In their childhood, the girls’ village was attacked by a group of strange monsters. While they survived that encounter, their childhood friend Koko went missing. Three years later, they have embarked on a journey to find her together and allied themselves with a witch named Maia along the way.
With Maia’s help, the trio has now made their way to a village led by the kind-hearted princess Arie. The princess agrees to help the group find their friend, if they can help her first; her village is suffering from an unusual drought, which Maia may be able to address thanks to her magical powers. As the witch prepares for a ritual, Yaya spends time with Arie and the two of them grow closer, causing Yaya to consider abandoning her search for Koko to remain with Arie. Meanwhile, Arie’s high priestess Imala seems to be scheming behind the girls’ back.
Yaya is the protagonist of this tale. She was trained to be a hunter by her parents, and she’s good at hunting with her trusty spear.
Yaya is a cheerful, energetic young woman who always looks on the bright side of life. She’s very protective of her childhood friend, Aiyana, and she dedicates herself to cheering Aiyana up.
Though a good-natured woman, Yaya has something of a short temper, and often comes to blows with Maia – particularly when Maia tries to tease her.
Aiyana is an anxious, awkward girl born into a family of shamans. Though those with white hair are believed to possess immense magical powers, Aiyana is quite mundane, and has no special abilities to speak of. That did not stop her from being bullied and mistrusted while growing up, however.
Aiyana is a delicate young woman with little in the way of stamina. She feels faint at the sight of blood, and can’t stand the thought of hunting. She often relies on Yaya to fight her battles, which leads to her feeling like a dead weight, despite Yaya’s constant reassurances.
Maia is a mischievous witch whose age is something of a mystery. She dislikes speaking about herself, but she adores ferreting out other people’s secrets, then teasing them relentlessly.
Maia is very gifted with magic, to such a degree she can commune with the spirits, alter the weather, and flip cute girls’ skirts up with errant gusts of air (to Yaya’s chagrin).
Maia is no ordinary human, but a witch, and – as such – her sense of propriety is somewhat skewed. She has no regard to personal space, and gets a sadistic kick out of making cute girls squirm. Yaya is her favorite target.
Arie is the young, inexperienced princess of the village where Yaya, Aiyana, and Maia find themselves in their search for Koko. She appears graceful and dignified, but gets flustered easily, and often worries about making a good impression upon others.
Arie is highly respected among her people, but she has no genuine friends. Her subjects revere her too much to consent to using her first name, and insist upon calling her ‘your highness’.
Arie tries to act as though this does not bother her, but deep down, she desperately desires a friend.
Imala is Arie’s high priestess, and her chief advisor. Older than she appears, and significantly more experienced than Arie, Imala is well-poised to give sage advice whenever it is needed.
Imala possesses a good deal of magical prowess, but how powerful she is remains a mystery.
Imala is rarely seen without a smile, but there’s something shadowy lurking beneath it.
Sakura Forest Girls 2 is now available for PC and Linux on Steam for the promotional price of $7.49 until August 2nd, at which point it will cost $9.99. Adult content for the game has to be installed separately, using a patch available on Winged Cloud’s Patreon.
