Yuri News This Week – March 21, 2009

March 21st, 2009

Off we fly, into the wild Yuri yonder!

Yuri Anime

Sasamekikoto anime has been confirmed. I’m flabbergasted, gobsmacked and tickled. Hopefully, those of you who see Sumi and Ushio will be moved to buy the manga, which is absolutely delightful.

And speaking of delightful, there is a trailer up for Aoi Hana. No animation as of yet, but you can see the pretty watercolors from the manga and say “oooh.”

Snatches of Yuri

Looks like a new web-based Mai HiME property is on the way: Mai HiME Rebundei Nekohime Blog. Based merely on a superficial glance at the web page, I already hate it. lol

George R points an enthusiastic finger at the novel Memories Off 2nd ~ Precious Hearts, which has unexpected and not entirely craptastic Yuri. He has provided a review which will surely be used at some time in the future. :-)

Otoshite Apri-gal is also something that, based just on first glance is nothing I want to read. But those of you who disagree with me on mostly everything will surely like it!

And last for today is yet another Mangatime Kirara (KR Comics) series called Manken which is in every single Yuri list, so I guess it has Yuri, huh? As it’s KR, I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s probably a 4-koma, with a wacky girl, an average girl, a butchy-ish girl and the other girl. :-)

That’ll give you something to chew on while I take a few days off and go do other, completely non-anime/manga things that involve people who don’t read any of this crap. See you when I get back!

    Yay for Sasameki Koto!! XD I sent an e-mail to Afterellen.com this past Wednesday to let them know about this series and the Aoi Hana anime coming up, since both shows would be very relevant to their interests (and they cover international shows as well as comics and American animation), but they haven’t mentioned either series at all this week. (Several months ago, I also tipped them about some new Yuri DVD releases in the U.S., and the result was, once again, dead silence. *shrugs*) But it’s great news that the series is being made in the first place. :)

    And the new Mai-Hime light novel being released online isn’t winning me over either (cat ears on the new protagonist on page 1…and moe Haruka?), and I’m a pretty forgiving/hardcore fan of the franchise. ^^;; Ideally, (according to my warped fan metality), they should just give Natsuki her own series.

    Hey Erica I’d like to support Sasameki Koto. I recently came across it because of your updates and have read some of it online but how do we buy the manga?? Was it released here in the states? I apologize if this has already been address… I’m kinda of a noob :)
