In the meantime, I wanted to give you a glimpse in between the covers, so you can get an idea of what you’ll be seeing this year!
We are very excited to have Circle UKOZ returning with their beautiful and subtle stories. The book starts off with two stories by Nishi UKO: “Grass” and “Make a Style,” both of which are sequels to the story in Yuri Monogatari 5, following teachers Zuka-chan and Enomoto in their relationship.
Newcomer Maria Bieganska has drawn a surreal and evocative story about loss, need and love in her tale “40 Minutes.” Sample of the art can be seen to the left. It’s dreamlike and beautiful.
In “Sakura Gun,” lesbian novelist J.D. Glass tells us a tale of the epic fight against evil and to protect the ones you love, in this side story to her newest novel American Goth. Sample on the right.
Mike Hayes and I have teamed up together to teach you “How to Tell The Difference” – because we’re pretty sure you all need the help. lol
In “Miho-chan’s Memories,” Rica Takashima looks back at little Miho’s early years, to point out that some things are just…obvious. lol
What do you get the girl who has *everything*? Althea Keaton ponders this age-old conundrum in “For the Girl Who Has Everything.”
Houjo KOZ, the second half of Circle UKOZ takes a long, hard look at exactly what “love” means through the words of a popular singer who never stops to think about what she’s saying, in “Sinful.”
A party, a major misunderstanding and a looooong list of “Univited Guests” cause humorous chaos in Jessie’s B’s world of cracked characters.
Greyscaled’s “Speak Love” is a look at the end of a relationship – and the ironic turn that it takes to put it back together.
And we end the anthology off this time with a lovely, poignant story by Eriko Tadeno about the trials, tribulations and triumphs of a really long term relationship in “30th Christmas.”
Several other extremely talented individuals have also contributed to this volume: Susan Knowles, Sirk Tani and cover artist Kristina Kolhi have all provided art for our viewing pleasure.
There you have it – an early sneek peek at the upcoming Yuri Monogatari 6!
