Sentai Filmworks announces their English dub cast of Blue Drop.
Meanwhile, in another part of the shards of ADV, Section 23 has announced that they have licensed and will release a season set of CANAAN. The pre-order for the Complete Collection and a Blu-Ray edition of same is already up at RightStuf. (Not yet at Amazon, but I’ll put it on the Yuricon Shop as soon as there is a link.) Yay! I think we now have an answer to the question “what series will be Erica’s first Blu-Ray acquisition?”
Media Blasters has delayed several titles a month or two, among them Ikkitousen, Volume 3, Ikki Tousen Collection, Queen’s Blade, Volume 2, Rayearth Remastered, Season 2, Queen’s Blade, Volume 3, Queen’s Blade Complete Series, Queen’s Blade Blu-Ray Complete Series.
Gee, Blu-Ray for CANAAN, Blu-Ray for Queen’s Blade. Which makes better sense….
Seven Seas announced a pile of new licenses, among them To Aru Kagaku no Railgun (A Certain Scientific Railgun.) That’s good news in my book.
YNN Correspondent Sean brings the news of a sad parting. Morinaga Milk’s Girl Friends will be ending in the September issue of Comic High. It had to happen – she doesn’t really do after the happily-ever-after bits. It was a fun run, anyway.
I need to correct a news item from past weeks: The Maria-sama ga Miteru manga continuation started in the July volume of Za Margaret. I just got August and it picks up in the middle of the arc where Noriko and Shimako meet. Now we’ll all have to scramble to find last month’s volumes. Sorry….
Snatches of Yuri
The first volume of Roronoa no Atelier: Watashi no Takaramono is out. I managed to catch a chapter of this in Comic Blade, where it runs. It appears to have a group of three girls who are *very* close friends. It’s sort of post-apocalyptic, sort of fantasy. I have no idea what the story is about and don’t feel like looking it up. :-) Oh and look, it appears to be a sequel.
Namori-sensei, the creator of Yuru Yuri, has a new Yuri series starting in Caramel Febri magazine.
“Girl’s Comic” Otome Tsushin (which looks not really for girls, but for guys who want to think they are getting a glimpse into the world of girls) is said to have a few Yuri stories, some better than others, some more Yuri than others.
That’s a wrap for this week.
