YNN Correspondent Roundup
From YNN Correspondent Ellen K, news that Takarazuka is working on another anime/manga -related character show, this time the infamous thief Lupin the Third.
YNN Senior European Correspondent Grisznak reports that Polish doujinshi company, The Cold Desire, is looking for a authors for the second edition of their Yuri fiction anthology. They have previously released a Yuri manga anthology with Polish authors and a volume of Yuri fiction. Great news that they’ve found enough creators and readers to go a second volume. Good luck to them. ^_^
YNN Correspondent Jin notes that ANN has reported amazing news – Yuri Kuma Arashi, a joint project with Utena and Penguindrun director Ikuhara Kunihiko, with character designs by Morishima Akiko is being made into an anime. This should be interesting, at the very least. ^_^
YNN Senior Correspondent Erin S has a massive pile of lovely queer webcomics that she wanted to share with you all:
Once Upon A Time There Was A Prince from the Crispy Fish Tumblr
A little love story about mermaids and tattoos - from the Charmingly Antiquated Tumblr
From The Great Experiment: The Hand of a Princess. This was fantastic. ^_^
Just a note on Tumblr – Tumblr has great mechanics for sharing within Tumblr, but exceedingly poor mechanics to rtain attribution and credit. If you have a Tumblr thing to share, if you can send me the link to the actual real original, that’d be great. Creators – put your damn name on your comics!
To this list of fantastic social commentary in comic form I want to add Karine Charlebois‘ Illustrated Guide to Issues of Harassment, Representation, And Media Criticism, written up on The Mary Sue. This was just a lovely little conversation with readers who still aren’t quite cluing in. I suggest bookmarking it, it will probably come in handy at some point. ^_^
That’s a wrap for this week! Become a Yuri Network Correspondent by sending me any Yuri-related news you find. Emails go to anilesbocon01 at hotmail dot com. Not to the comments here, please, or they might be forgotten or missed. There’s a reason for this madness.

Thanks to all of you – you make this a great Yuri Network!
