The unofficial word is that Yuri Shimai is “on hiatus”. According to the report from a Japanese source sales were fine but, for various reasons, it has been suspended for the time being.
We will fervently hope that this is a restructuring, redesign, printing or distribution issue, and that it will be resolved and the magazine will be brought back soon!
This means that, once again, Yuri Monogatari is the only all-yuri anthology currently in print. (And we also fervently hope that, one day, it will be more than an annual publication.)
You can still order the existing issues of Yuri Shimai through Amazon Japan on the Yuricon Shop. If you do that it will show the powers that be there *is* an interested audience, which is never a bad thing.
In the meantime, we’ll just have to imagine how Ran and Julia get together….sigh.
