Aokana Drama CDs Vol. 3 and 4 Now Available on Steam; Include Hot Springs Talk and a Comfy Sleepover

Without a prior release date announcement, publisher NekoNyan has revealed that Aokana Drama CDs Vol. 3 and 4 are now available on Steam. These are Japanese-voiced audio contents with English-translated transcripts that expand upon the scenario of the games. The events themselves aren’t supposed to be particularly relevant to the general story but the CDs should allow players to enjoy some more quality time with the girls.

The Aokana Drama CDs can be bought as an add-on to Aokana: Four Rhythms Across the Blue at the cost of $7.19 each with a 10% discount for the first week sales. Volume 3 includes a 25-minute-long audio of Asuka Kurashina (CV: Sawada Natsu) and a 27-minute-long audio of Mashiro Arisaka (CV: Sera Mito). The theme for these “dating diaries” are hot springs.

On the other hand, Volume 4 has short intros for Asuka, Mashiro, Misaki, Rika and even Aoi. After those, we get to listen to 32 minutes of the girls doing a sleepover at Rika’s house. This should be a comfortable look at their outlook and the kind of conversation they can only have by being together with no boys (especially no Masaya) around.

The original visual novel, Aokana: Four Rhythms Across the Blue, was released for PC and Switch and tells the story of a young man called Masaya Hinata and a group of girls who try to compete in an aerial sport called Flying Circus. While he was a prodigy once upon a time, he had turned his back on the sport after defeat. By getting to meet Asuka, Mashiro, Misaki and Rika, he’ll have to once again enter the stage, this time as a coach.

In case you missed it, check out our review of Aokana and the Mashiro-focused fandisc Aokana – EXTRA 1. Also keep in mind a second fandisc called Aokana – EXTRA 2 that will be released in Japan in May 27 should give players the chance to enjoy an extra time with Misaki Tobisawa.
