Okazu News: New Banner and "Opinion, Part 3"

November 8th, 2006

This week has been a bit busy, what with preparations beginning for Yuricon 2007 Yurisai, our festival of Yuri. Look for some signs of life on the Yuricon website soon, as we start developing programming, video, guests and contests for this exciting one-day event! Registration is slated to begin in January.

In the meantime, as we’ve made it to yet another November here at Okazu, I thought I’d offer up the opportunity once more to ask me anything, anything at all, as long as it’s not absurdly personal (“What’s your bank account number?”) I promise to, as I have in the past, answer everything with my usual brutal, yet somehow adorable, honesty. Questions about Yuri are always welcome, questions about ALC and Yuricon are VERY welcome, questions about Maria-sama ga Miteru are always fun, but don’t be afraid to make me think. I’ll warn you though – I’m not good at logic questions, I tend to think in bursts of intuitive thought, so if you’re proposing a difficult logic question, I’ll pass. I never liked those. ^_^

Ask your questions here in the comments section, or feel free to email them to me with the subject “Your Opinion” and I’ll do my best to answer them all. I won’t promise to be nice, but I’ll do my best to be funny. ^_^ The last two ventures into this were a hoot, so I’m looking forward to your questions! (And I have a personal bet with myself about them…let’s see how I do.) No limit to the number of questions you can ask, but no promises about the number I answer.


While you’re thinking up a good questions, please feel free to use one of the wonderful new link to Okazu banners, complete with “Yuri Okazu” logo as created by my beloved wife! We have two sizes – the small banner is about 2.8″ long and the super-sized version is about 4.8″ long. Please spread the word and spread the love and link to Okazu! (I was going to include a tagline “Okazu – when you’re hungry for yuri” but decided to skip it on the banner. Feel free to use it or not. ^_^ And see if you can ID everything we put in our little “Yuri Bento” box there.

    Ok, here goes. (actually 3 questions)

    What do you think of Tsundere, the Tsundere Fad and Tsundere Fans?

    I have an actual question, a silly question, and a completely irrelevant question.

    1. Do you think there might be another Yuricon event in Japan?

    2. If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one Yuri manga series, what would it be?

    3. In your opinion, what was the main cause of the decline of Mediterranean civilizations at the end of the bronze age?

    Some dumber questions…mwahhaha
    1. What hentai fetish makes you cringe?

    2. Have you evern been to a gay bar?

    3. Would you turn away from Yuri if the fans became as obsessed as say, some yaoi fans? (i.e. Your inbox would be litterally mobbed if you insulted Kanamiko and such.)

    How did you get such an awesome job? Related question: Will ALC ever hire trans or editors? Stupidly related question: Do I really have to live in NYC or LA to work in publishing? Somehow even stupider question: Should I bother getting a Blogger account?

    What kind of music do you listen to, anyways? Any specific bands, albums or songs you’d feel like recommending? Any all-time favourites? Weird curiosities? Anything else you’d like to say about your taste in music, or music in general?

    Wow, these are some really good questions. Though I have a feeling I know what you’re going to say for about 90% of them.

    Hmm. Let me see if I can contribute. . . . What would you do with ALC if you won the lottery?
