YNN Correspondents AudioErotica and Erin S. remind us that the first of the Tsubomi collections are coming out in August, starting with Ebisu-san and Hotei-san, Shimaism and Hoshikawa Ginza Yon-choume.
Also out on the same day is Tsubomi, Vol. 7.
For folks that like our Yuri a little more mature, Rakuen Le Paradise, Volume 3 is due to hit the streets next week. I know that I will never turn down more Nishi UKO.
Winner for this week’s oddest title is Rokuroichi’s Yuri Hime collection, Kuchibiru ni Saketa Orange.
Snatches of Yuri
There’s a series I haven’t looked at at all called Nishiburi, but a number of the Japanese Yuri lists mention that Volume 3 is totally Yuri, 5 out of 5 stars!! And in this statement lies the crux of the matter – this zOMG Yuri? One character says she likes the other character. This is exactly why I blog. Because that moment that, to so many of the male Japanese Yuri fans is the apex of Yuri is not, to my mind, the climax of a relationship, but the beginning. That, in a nutshell, is why we get so many “Story A”s, in case you ever wondered.
An illustrator that has done some work for Ichijinsha, and has done Sonohanabira and Strawberry Panic! illustrations, Sakai Kyuuta has an artbook coming out this summer called candy rain. One expects the Service quotient to be rather high, so if nekkid girls are what you’re after, save up your money and buy yourself a present. :-)
And for folks who like Hakamada Mera’s style, Yamaguchi Maiko’s Futari Poppo seems like a good bet.
Maria-sama ga Miteru Movie News
A week without Marimite news is a sad week, so I’m glad to tell you there is now a photo book available with photos from the filming of the Maria-sama ga Miteru live-action movie!
I shared this on the Yuricon Mailing List and thought I’d share it here, as well. And I may make Twitter News a semi-regular feature, since there’s a lot going on there. This week’s Twitter news is idiotic. :-)
For those of you who are fans of Hayate x Blade (that’s all of you, right?) joining Twitter just got even dumber than before. You too can befuddle, annoy and confuse a number of the HxB characters by talking to (or about) them on Twitter.
Kurea threatened to call the school guard on me. ^_^;;
That’s a wrap for this week.
