This Week in Yuri – December 6, 2008

December 6th, 2008

Yuri Live-Action

Let’s start off with something a little different today. Takarazuka has announced that they will be doing a Phoenix Wright show in February through March. The Takarazuka website has a peek at the poster for the show. This performance is Cosmos troupe, for those of you who follow TK. :-)

Yuri Anime

Right Stuf has announced that they have updated the Maria Watches Over Us website, with new trailers and spiffy downloads for fans of the series. There’s also official character profiles now for Touko and Noriko.

Meanwhile, on the Japanese-language Marimite website, Gokigenyou.com, you can see the character design for Shouko – a character I cannot *wait* for you all to meet.

Also, because this ought to be a challenge….The Rose Mansion is coming to life again in Second Life, on 12/12 and 12/19 at 11PM Japan time. News about the events can be found here – in Japanese, of course. I’m going to try and make one of the events. I don’t know if it will work, and I’ll probably be hopelessly lost, but…

Yuri Drama CD

I’d completely forgotten to mention that there are BLUE DROP drama CDs – Volume 1 and Volume 2 – that were put out this year. They both seem to deal with the story from the first volume of manga (not the anime) and are further delineated into “Lover’s Side” and “Traitor’s Side.” Intruiging, huh? I’ll add these to the “to-get” lists and report back when I’ve had a chance to give them a listen. :-)

Yuri Manga

The newest 100% Yuri anthology from ALC Publishing, Yuri Monogatari 6 is up for a limited time/limited audience pre-preorder special. Members of the Yuricon Mailing List and J.D. Glass’s newsletter were treated to a special discount and extra gift order. Expect a more open pre-order period after the holidays. And I’ll do a sneek peak then, too. It’s going to be a fabulous anthology!

No “Snatches” today. It’s been a long week. I’ll try and play catch up next week with a list of obscure stuff you don’t care about. lol

    “Takarazuka has announced that they will be doing a Phoenix Wright show in February through March.”

    Do they ever release recordings of their performances? Say a DVD or a soundtrack?

  2. They release all of them. You can buy them directly on the Takarazuka site, but the do not ship outside Japan. You will need to use a buying service.

    Yay, a new Takarazuka show! ^^ The tickets are so hard to come by, though… (When I was in the Tokyo area just over a year ago, I tried getting tickets, but they were all sold out. > <) Those two Marimite Second Life events sound cool, though. I just thought I would mention, for Milk Morinaga fans, that her first anthology of collected Yuri Hime stories, Kuchibiru Tameiki Sakurairo, is out of print. (I'm having a heck of a time trying to get it now.) Hopefully there will be a second printing? Otherwise I'll just try to get a good quality used copy.

    I noticed on the RS site that they say the December issue of Otaku USA comes with marimite stuff… which would be all fine and good if you could actually go the store and buy it… but you can’t. Both Borders and Barnes & Noble magazine vendors no longer carry it (only the first issue was available and when that didn’t sell they dropped it). So… I’m guessing you have to buy it online if at all.

  5. @Senbei – call around to different stores. I’ve seen it here in both B&N and Borders.
