Here’s a few tidbits of Yuri news that have been floating around my inbox for a few days:
From Poland – Yuricon ML member Grisznak has had a History of Yuri published at the biggest Polish manga and anime portal, anime.com.pl Grisznak will also be involved in several Yuri and Yuri-related panels at Polish cons in 2008 – check out the Yuri Events Page on Yuricon for details. (And if you are running or know of a Yuri-related panel or event anywhere in the world, please email me so I can add it to the Events Page!) The Polish Yuri community is amazing – go Polish Yuri fans!
From Japan – Rica Takashima says that she intends on drawing more Rica and Miho for us! \o/ I’m not above using evil means to pressure her, so we can do a sequel to Rica ‘tte Kanji!?. So, in the comments field, please put your wishes for more Rica and Miho, and I’ll collect them and forward them to her. lol
From US – Yuricon has been updated with new items on the Shop, new events and starting this weekend, we have a new Japanese-language home page. Most of the interior pages are in English as of yet but, little by little, we’ll be converting as many as possible to Japanese. This is a very exciting first step forward on something we’ve wanted to do for some time. Many thanks to Katey, our website translator!
(I’m going to try my best to post Events in their native language going forward as well, so if you are sending in an event or panel, please include the information in your native tongue as well. This is all part of our plan for total world domination. LOL)
If you have news you want to share about events or Yuri anywhere in the world, email me – Yuri fans want to know. :-)
