Yuri News This Week – July 26, 2008

July 26th, 2008

Short post today – I’m incredibly pressed for time.

Yuri Novels

Ichijinsha has released the first two Yuri Light Novels in their new Girls Love Line. Wild Bouquet looks to be a maid/mistress story and Period is a girls with guns thing that is notably illustrated by Shoujo Sect‘s Kurogane Kenn. Thanks to Kazu-kun for also sending me info on these. There’s previews of these novels in Yuri Hime S (plus an “Otomeiro Stay Tuned” clearfile by Fujieda) and some Yuri Hime Wildrose side stories in Yuri Hime as extras, so if you want to take a look before haring off and buying them, you can.

I do have to say, though, that for series supposedly part of their line for girls, these two novels look *awfully* like they are really for the guys. Unless “girls” novels really meant “novels about girls.” No clue and don’t really care one way or another. I’m just sort of thinking out loud. lol

Yuri Manga

WORKS by Eriko Tadeno is back in print! Place your orders now at the Yuricon Shop for this fabulous 100% Yuri collection.

Bandai has yet again announced that it has licensed the Lucky Star manga, which is probably good news for Konata x Kagami fans.

    I wasn’t going to go to Yasumicon, but now that I know there’s going to be a Yuri panel, I think I will! :D

  2. Katherine says:

    Wow, thank you for mentioning my panel! :D (My more tech-savvy friend and I spent all afternoon today finishing the last details of the slide show, like proofreading and editing clips.) And anonymous, thank you for wanting to attend! Hopefully it’ll go well. ^_^

    I heard something about Lucky Star’s author turning the KagaKona fanon into canon in the manga–so is that really true?

    Someone on the Marimite forum here: http://z3.invisionfree.com/MariMite_Forums has posted a lot of images of the RightStuf box set of season one of Marimite, complete with pictures of the Rosa Chinensis phone charm.

  5. dm – I have no idea. I’m sure fans hope so.

    @dm- there is more Yuri in the manga than the anime, but it’s all just jokes made by Konata. At least up to the end of volume 1.

    I went and searched everywhere for that panel and did not find it )’:

  9. Hi Anon – Usually panel times and locations are listed in the program book and/or schedule. If they are not the number one best way to find out where things are is to ask at con Information or the Panels Ops. One of those locations will generally know where panels are. This way you don’t have to wander around looking.
