Sweet Blue Flowers began publication in the pages of Ohta Publishing’s Manga Erotics F in November 2004. The series spans eight collected volumes. Viz Media describes the title as:
Fumi Manjoume, an introverted, bookish teenage girl, is beginning her first year of high school at Matsuoka Girls’ High School. She enters the school year with her heart broken by a previous relationship. At about the same time, she reconnects with her best friend from ten years ago, Akira Okudaira, who is now attending Fujigatani Girls’ Academy as a first-year high school student. As they reconnect, they both deal with their own respective romantic problems, and help each other get through them.
An eleven-episode anime adaptation was produced by J.C.Staff, which aired in the summer 2009 broadcast season. Right Stuf currently holds the domestic rights to the Sweet Blue Flowers anime.
