February 20th, 2010

Welcome to your weekly edition of the Yuri Network news. I’m Erica, anchor for today’s broadcast.

Yuri Anime

YNN correspondent bystrouska, shares that “Japan Expo Sud, Japan Expo’s Southern baby sister con, which will is being held in Marseille on this weekend, will have advanced showings of… Aoi Hana. Which is awesome,” bystrouska says, “as it means that Aoi Hana DVDs will be coming our way in a not-so-distant future.”

Right Stuf/Nozomi is relaunching their Aria site, with news on about the third season and of the anime, Aria the Origination and the OVA, with the addition of new content – including new “virtual postcards from Neo-Venezia” and a trailer, plus wallpapers and avatars.

Yuri Manga

Okazu Superhero and YNN corespondent Eric P. has spotted the news that Saito Chiho, best known among Yuri fans as the artist of the Shoujo Kakumei Utena manga, will be attending Animazement in North Carolina.

Yuri Drama CD

Ever vigilant as always, YNN correspondent Katherine H. reports that a second original To Aru no Kagaku no Railgun Drama CD is up for Pre-order.

I just finished listening to the Sasamekikoto: Longest Day of Sumika Drama CD and the song is still stuck in my head. Not the opening or closing song – the birthday party song. It was…special. Review forthcoming.

Other News

Totally unrelated to Yuri, I have recently done two Guest Reviews for those worthies of manga blogging, Deb Aoki of Manga.About.com and David Welsh of Manga Curmudgeon. For those of you who read Okazu for my reviews, (as opposed to those of you who read for Yuri only) I invite you to read my reviews of Stan Lee’s Ultimo, and Kurouda Iou’s Sexy Voice and Robo which I reviewed as part of the Manga Movable Feast – and I hope you’ll read the other reviews that were part of the MMF. The Feast was an idea born on Twitter, that legendary place where many manga bloggers gather to discuss things and basically squeal over the good and squall over the bad. :-) I enjoyed both these titles, for what it’s worth.

That’s a wrap for this week.

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