Yuri Network News – September 5, 2009

September 5th, 2009


So much great Yuri news this week!

Yuri Anime

November is going to be a bang-up month for Yuri fans, with Sasamekikoto in Japan and El Cazador here, and now we have yet another thing to look forward to: Arca Jeth (and many other people!) want you to know that Sentai Filmworks announces that they’ll be releasing Blue Drop in November as well. It’ll be coming out as a season box set, for a reasonable price. Can’t ask for better. :-)

Yuri Manga

YNN correspondent Sean G. is pleased to note that the new Udon Press editions of the Silent Mobius manga has begun. Volume 1 is out, and full of Rally Cheyenne goodness.

And in case you hadn’t heard the news, Dark Horse will be putting out a Cardcaptor Sakura and Magic Knight Rayearth in omnibus editions.

Also in November, Sylwia says that the Comix Grrrlz website is publishing their first Polish lesbian comic book anthology. Their project is not concentrated on manga style arts. “We want to publish a book contains different art styles and different views at sappho themas (also from male perspective).” Release date will be in November. As soon as they can, they’ll put a page up on the website for sales. Keep an eye open for this, as it joins the Dutch Open-Minded collection as the second European Yuri doujinshi.

YNN Correspondent Katherine H. reports that Volume 1 of Naomura Tooru’s Shitsurakuen is coming out on September 18. Fans of Utena should take note, because it has some similarities.

Yuri Drama CD

Katherine also joyously proclaimed to the Yuricon Mailing List that a Aoi Hana Drama CD is on the way.

Other Yuri News

Simon B says that Animate says the Aoi Hana fanbook has been delayed to the 8th.

    It’s way more fun to send in news via the comments – and it’s surer to get published via the comments than via the news bulletin.

  2. A valid way of looking at it, except that I do post news items that are sent to me, more often than ones that are added after the fact inn the comments.

  3. For this weekend (something you should add to the news bulletin), here’s Guren Onna (a comedy/suspense TV series starring Ai Takabe):

    Two interesting facts:

    1.) Ai Takabe (the geeky teacher) is one of the lead voices in Aoi Hana.
    2.) The high school where she works at has students wearing Lillian-style uniforms.

    Minor nitpick: El Cazador part 1 has been delayed and is now scheduled for release in December.
