Wakasa Kyouichirou (若狭 京一郎)
Many years after the opening of the country…
The circulation of money and businesses grew because of steamships and railroads, and people’s lives were also drastically changed. Western practices were adopted one after another and pop culture, such as moving pictures, literature, paintings, and theater, were also greatly developed.
There was an upsurge of freedom and a trend towards openness between people, but a freedom to openly enjoy romantic love was not guaranteed.
Young men and women secretly exchanged letters and conveyed their feelings to each other… It was an age where such romantic love was a matter of course.
The Hakumei Academy set an example of unprecedented educational plan in this age of integrated education, after a policy of compulsory education, and above all it shocked society with its principle for coeducation between men and women in its university department.
Even in Hakumei Academy, it was rare for women to go on to the highest educational institution called “university” and so, inevitably, they became targets of longing by the men.
Of course, you, who attended this Hakumei Academy, were also a target.
Before long, it became the fashion to “exchange letters” between the men and women who shared the same school building.
Much thanks to Noir for the commission!! This is a really cute series that I remember listening to way back, so it was a pleasure to come back to it with better comprehension. Psst, Satou Takuya is also in this series— I’M NOT BIASED. R18 content warning but this is just sweet, sweet fluff.
Because of how Milky Chain has a general synopsis and then character descriptions, I’m also going to translate the character description so that people have a better idea of what they’re getting into here.
Wakasa Kyouichirou – Professor at Hakumei Academy’s University Department.
Though he’s young, he’s valued highly for his research results and excellence as an instructor, and so he’s been newly appointed to the academy.
He’s popular among the students for being easy to talk to and gentle.
The letter you’ve never been able to hand over was picked up, and the distance between you two grew closer.
PRESENT: Higashikuze Junya (東久世 潤也)
PAST: Emperor Aoi (葵月帝)
A Revolving Love is Like a Lotus ~ The Two Who Remember ~
Let us go around and around, until the day we love (meet) again…
The one you met when you were reborn was the beloved of your “previous life”…
This is a love story about two sets of memories–
(Someone stop me!! From constantly picking up projects!! No, to be honest though, I’ve been wanting to do this one for a long time because I’m a sucker for these types of stories and this volume struck me so hard in the heart. Normally, I’d provide a synopsis but there’s actually a prologue track that does it at the beginning so yay! R18 WARNING!)
EDIT 2018/08/11: Added the Milky Chain tokuten, thanks to @shngml for providing that one to me ;w;.
