One last entry before I leave for the Yuri Revolution tour – something to provide you with a few hours of fun while I’m in transit. LOL
There is a Japanese-language site called Small Call, that tracks all sorts of yuri-related news and info. The site has lists of yuri-related anime, manga, game, drama CD and novel sites. They also put together a list after every Comiket of the yuri-related circles that were present.
The last Comiket, in December 2004, was “Comike 67” – here is the list of yuri circles. Not all of the circles have websites, and some of those that do don’t really have good websites (i.e., no fun pictures. lol) but many of them do – and it’s nice to be able to see some of the major players in the yuri doujinshi field. Especially as these are the folks out there doing decent original yuri.
I highly recommend visiting these sites, taking a look at the art, reading the stories and sending encouraging letters to the creators. Remember – these folks are creating yuri out of love and getting little back for their pains. Knowing that they have an international audience would probably make their day!
I’m hoping to bring back some good yuri doujinshi for the Yuricon Shop, so keep your fingers crossed. :-)
So – while I’m traveling, keep busy with the Small Call Yuri Doujinshi circle list. Enjoy and I’ll see you in a few days!
