Honey's Anime


This summer night is all but quiet. Tons of people are chattering and walking back and forth looking at the rows of food stalls and game activities. In front of those stalls are Honey and Bee-kun looking around for someone, when Mo-chan and Bombon shyly approach them. Bombon is wearing a purple traditional yukata with an elaborate butterfly pattern. Her braids are tucked up into an updo. Honey is looking at her ​​bedazzled by her changed appearance, an expression that makes Bombon blush a little.

Shortly after, the night sky is filled with what looks like hundreds of colorful “flowers”. Honey has a warm expression in her eyes.
