Live Action Movies
From the “ehhh?” file, we’ve got news of Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, the creative team behind Xena, Warrior Princess picking up the option for a live-action movie version of Bee Train’s Noir. Immediately upon my tweeting this, fans began saying incredibly stupid things like, “It’ll be good as long as they keep Canta Per Me” or “Ohh, maybe that means they’ll do El Cazador too!” Quick note folks – they will change *everything,* location, stories, music, everything and no, they will not also do El Cazador. Get past that now, it’ll save a lot of tiresome teeth-gnashing down the line, supposing this project goes anywhere at all. Thanks. ^_^
The reborn Yuri Hime magazine will hit the shelves this week!
Also out this week is Kazuma Kowo’s Sayonara Folklore from Yuri Hime Comics.
And, at last, the final volume of GIRL FRIENDS by Morinaga Milk is available! I’d like to take this opportunity to ask all of you who have been enjoying this manga by reading scanlations to please *support* the artist by purchasing the manga. If even a third of you do, it will make a big difference to her.
Let me also call your attention to a new anthology called Flower Festa, which is a group work by a number of doujinshi artists – each artist has contributed a character, and a story using any or all of the characters submitted by the others. One of my favorite artists, Houjou KOZ of Circle UKOZ has contributed. It’s a neat premise and it looks like the execution will be fun.
Yuri Anthology Hirari is launching the 3rd volume with a new name – Pure Yuri Anthology Hirari, which I think is pretty indicative of the “slightly before story A” type stories that have been running in it.
And my last bit of news this week is a kind of WTF moment, as (according to the book covers in the stores) the third Volume of Morita-san ha Muguchi, slated for late next February, will come with a short anime. If you recall, this series is about a girl who never speaks, so the idea of it being turned into an anime is quite silly.
That’s a wrap for this week.
