Yuri Network News – November 27, 2010

Snatches of Yuri

CANAAN, Volume 2 from Kadokawa Comics has been out for a while, but since I just started rewatching the anime, it’s in my head. So why not check that out?

Daremo ienai looks really interesting. It’s being published by Hakusensha and the Amazon package deal is with Rakuen le Paradis, so I’m guessing it skews towards an older female audience.

Himitsu, by Otomo Megane is subtitled “Secret Love” and the cover features two girls holding hands. This is a KR comic and with all those things I project that it is /drum roll/ Story A. When it hits the shelves next month we’ll know for sure. (YNN Correspondent Erin S. confirms that this is a collection of Otomo’s stories from Tsubomi anthology, so I feel even more confident that they are Story A. ^_^)

From bottom-feeding Champion Red comes Minori Scandal. The first line of the first review on Amazon JP reads “I love Yuri hentai!” and the cover shows a girl – I assume it’s Minori – looking “sexy” for our bottom-feeding pleasure. I’m done with it, but if you decide to throw money at it, feel free to write a guest review!

I’m sure that, somewhere, someone likes Gokujouu, but that someone wasn’t me. It’s made it to Volume 3, more’s the pity.

Densho is said to be very, very, Yuri by people I almost always disagree with. ^_^ I have absolutely no idea what it’s about and am adding it to the report to be as comprehensive as possible.

Yuri Manga

Back in the world of manga that doesn’t make us sad to be alive, Uso Kurata has a new collection out from Ichijinsha. Sore demo Koi wo Suru will be hitting shelves on December 18th.

Yuri Hime Wildrose is undergoing a name change. From now on it will be known as Yuri Hime Girl’s Love. It remains to be seen if the content undergoes any change.

Maria-sama ga Miteru News

Take a deep breath. According to Shueisha’s release list, a new Maria-sama ga Miteru novel will be out on December 28! I’ve been enjoying the O-shaka-sama ga Miteru series, (with the exception of the odious Andre-sempai) but I’ll be thrilled to return to Lillian for a bit. As I have not been reading Cobalt Shueisha, I can’t tell you when the stories are, if they include any of “our” Yamayurikai or what. Maybe someone else can help us out on that end.

Yuri Anime

You may remember the manga I mentioned last week, A Channel. It’s being turned into an anime. The official anime website has announced the staff and the names are familiar to many Yuri fans. Folks that worked on Strawberry Panic, Saki and Strike Witches are gathering together to work on this moe 4-koma to anime.

That’s a wrap for this week.

    I was checking on amazon and came across something shocking: Uso Kurata has a second book out! “How come that wasn’t mentionned on Okazu??” Turns out it obviously was and I simply missed it… Oh well. Better late than never!

    I unfortunately can’t say that the cover is promising at all, but…

    In Linkage there was also a story about very young girls that I didn’t care at all about plus another one about sisters (story was pretty nice beside that though), but it didn’t stop the overall book from being stellar in my opinion. Amongst other things, it had adult women already being in love, it had my favorite short story ever and it had a story that reminded me of El Cazador a tiny bit (Complete with the girl being called El and the doctor being called Rozenberg) that has the best final line in any manga ever.

    Even though there’s one story I really don’t like and one I’m pretty “eh” about, Linkage might still be overall my favorite manga.

    So even though I don’t like the cover at all, I’m going to buy this one soon and hope that the “young schoolgirls on the cover” parts are only a few stories, and not the entire manga. I’ll admit I’m a bit afraid to be completely disapointed by the content especially since I know absolutely nothing of the stories in it beside the cover, but… I’ll take the risk anyway :)
