Yuri Manga

From YNN Correspondent Komatsu-san, French Yuri imprint Taifu Comics plans to release Morinaga Milk’s GIRL FRIENDS in 2011 (in French, obviously). France continues to be a very girl-friendly space for manga. The final volume of GIRL FRIENDS hits Japanese store shelves in November…just after I leave the country….

Fans of questions never answered and running around and angsting alot are sure to want to pick up the first volume of Zettai Shoujo Astoria by the artist that did First Love Sisters, Shinonome Mizuo.

FINALLY, the first volume of Nobara no Mori no Otome-tachi will be out in early November – unlike everything else I want, which comes out after I leave Japan. I really think you ought to buy this one and read it. Really. Just do it.


Maria-sama ga Miteru News

YNN Correspondent Soul Assassin was kind enough to point us towards this Cobalt Shueisha special with photos from the filming of the Maria-sama ga Miteru movie. It made me all kvell-y and happy. ^_^


Other News

A new Hayate x Blade Drama CD – the first since the shift to Ultra Jump – is listed on Amazon. It’s cleverly titled, Hayate x Blade Ultra Drama CD! Ichiban Hoshi! Zekkyoutsumeawase!.

Not Yuri, but classic sistercest, here’s a a Graphic Novel of Christina Rosetti’s juicy poem Goblin Market.

Also not quite Yuri, but very Yuri-friendly, I took a long, lingering look at women’s manga magazine Feel Young at Mangacast.


That’s a wrap for this week.

    Girlfriends at Taifu comics is even more than a simple release. It opens the brand new Yuri section of the company!

    Life is about to change…

    I only hopes it gets to the shelves the same easy way Yaoi does.

    Actually, Taifu Comics plans to launch a Yuri collection (with girlfriends for first book of the collection) so there will be more Yuri manga, here in France, very good news.

    I pray for Marimite licensed in France, the anime is licensed in us, the manga and novel in germany, nothing here so far, snif.

  4. Thanks folks. That’s what an “imprint” is – a whole line of books.

    Imprint..eh eh.. Thanks. I’ve learned a new word.

    It seems The Godess Of Yuri heard her believers…

    Wait for February and other mangas like “Sasameki Koto” or “Shoujo Sect” (but “Marimite” can wait :p).
