This Week In Yuri

February 9th, 2008

Astute “Friend of Yuri” Erin has informed us that Yuri manga artist Morinaga Milk was interviewed on HiPa~ web radio, the web radio for the publishers of comic High. She says that the whole thing is about 50 minutes long, Morinaga’s segment starts at 13:30. For a nice little synopsis, check out Erin’s post on the Yuricon Mailing List. Thanks for the heads up Erin!

I’d forgotten to mention this earlier, but Comic Seed has been releasing current issues online. This includes Yuri-esque manga Girl x Girl x Boy about a love triangle between two girls and a boy. The boy likes one of the girls who likes the other girl who likes him.

To listen to the HiPa~ radio and read Comic Seed, you will probably need IE. No guarantees for Firefox or Opera, anyway.

Okazu has been named to the Top 5 of Anime Blogs on Blogged.Com. I’ve never heard of any of the other top 5, so I’m not sure how I should react. Yay? LOL

Let’s see, Yuri scan/sub group Lililicious has a new community on the Japanese social networking site Mixi. You can talk to Erin, Lili’s Rosa Chinensis, myself, and other Lili members – *and* practice you Japanese language skills all at once! Of course, you can always chat with the group on their irc channel, as well, but how much cooler is it when it takes you an hour to say something banal. LOL

Oh and for fun, since Valentine’s Day is coming soon, I thought that I’d help all of you with some suggestions – after all, not everyone has time, energy or skill to make home-made chocolates, here are a few ideas for Chocolates For The One You Love (TM). :-)

So I’ve scanned through Amazon and come up few thoughts for those of you at a loss for the perfect gift.

Classic Satin Box of Chocolates, for the tried and true approach:

Chocolate Dipped Oreos, for a contemporary fun feel:

Dark Chocolate Roses, to cover all the bases:

Nana’s Cookies for the Cookie hound in your life:

If your sweetie can’t have chocolate, here’s a fun Nostalgic Candy Box:

For the Vegans, a sweet little Valentine’s Gift Box:

And last, for those of you who want to roleplay Rei and Yoshino (or Sachiko and Yumi,) some decadent chocolate truffles!:

And don’t forget to remind your sweetie about White Day – I’ll be back
in a month with more suggestions. :-)

I can’t swear that I’ll do this *every* week, but I kind of like these Saturday Yuri News reports. What do you think of them? Let me know!

    I love the idea of a weekly Yuri News report, and I also love the fact that there’s enough Yuri news out there to justify a weekly report!

    I like the news report! It’s a nice little summary of things people might miss from the Yuricon ML. ^^ I know I myself am a bad fan and don’t check it nearly as much as I should. XD

    Thanks for the V-Day choc recipes! I’m gonna give Nana’s recipe a try for me lass ;)
    Anyway, I think the weekly news report is a good idea too. Perhaps some additional news on the latest Yuri manga/novels in Japan, and maybe “Yuri News International” with interesting Yuri scoops around the world!

  4. reina – I always publish news from around the world if I have it to publish.

    It’s up to readers around the world to send it to me so i can get it out there!

    I also love the idea of weekly news, and like melissa I’m as glad as there’s enough Yuri news to make it real ^-^

    I got a mental picture of Erica delivering the Yuri news on CNN or something :P
