Yuri Network News – December 5, 2009

December 5th, 2009

The end of the year draws nigh and I guess it’s time to start thinking about my Top Ten Lists. Number One will be easy but ugh, the rest is going to be hard – this year because we had a ton of good stuff to choose from. And here’s a few more titles, to complicate matters. :-)

Yuri Manga

Choir! was a horrible-looking comic strip that turned out to be totally tolerable, with moments of actual funny and a surprisingly genuine Yuri couple. Now there’s a second volume out.

I still haven’t had a chance to read it, but Japanese Yuri lists say that at least one of the stories in Nakamura Ching’s collection Chin-Man is Yuri.

Yuri Drama CD

YNN correspondent Katherine H. is glad to share the news that there is a *third* Saki original Drama CD in the works.

While we’re at it, I want to share the news that the Maria-sama ga Miteru Premium CD with original recording, is now available. Those of you who favor Yumi x Touko (by which I mean…Sean) will like the cover.

Yuri Anime

Moonphase announced that Mitsudomoe is going to become an anime. A single glace at the cover of the manga was enough for me. If you like the idea of fetuses in frilly dresses, and a vaguely sort of Yuri-ish feel then you’ll love this, I’m sure.

Snatches of Yuri

Akane-iro Symphonia – Ichijinsha’s *other* novel line has been putting out a few Yuri novels and this seems to be the latest. High school girls and desktop music, with Yuri.

Sakura Ricetto looks, well, Yuri with lots of service. Girls, bathing, Yuri. Yup.

Other News

Google has released a new Japanese IME for those of you who would like the ability to type in Japanese directly. If you do not read Japanese, it will not be a big help to you, but if you can type Romaji, it will. Like the Microsoft IME, it gives you choices for Hiragana, Kanji and Katakana when you type Romaji in. I like it so far, which is to say, for the twice I used it this morning. :-)

(IME is Input Method Editor, in case you were wondering. Read about them here.)

That’s a wrap for this week.

Thanks to all of you – you make this a great Yuri Network!
