Yuri Anime

I already pointed to this yesterday, but for those of you who missed it, RightStuf is doing a deep discount on all 4 seasons pack of Maria Watches Over Us for $84.99 That’s about $100 off the retail price.

Crunchyroll has added the surprisingly not-cute Kiddy Girl-and. I was unable to make it past the first episode and stopped reading the manga, even though I was getting the magazine for something else, for what that’s worth to you. If you liked Kiddy Grade but felt that the leads needed to accidentally lose their underwear more often, then you’ll love this series.

Sentai Filmworks has announced that they have licensed Shin Koi Hime Musou and Shin Koi Hime Musou Otome Tairan, expect both in Spring 2011.

I can’t remember if I mentioned this, but Sentai also released the extremely odd series, Uta-Kata, which appeared to be one thing, was actually something else and suddenly developed a Yuri couple one episode (aside from the leads, which fans slashed instantly.) There were definitely some good qualities about the series, and a whole lotta holes in the story that were never filled.

Yuri Manga

Coming in 2011 from Ichijinsha, is a book with the subtle title Dream Yuri Ane.

Also appearing on shelves in early 2011 is the second volume of Ohana Horohoro and Octave, Volume 6.

Oh, and I have no idea how much Yuri this will have, but Oshima Towa (High School Girls) has got a new volume out called Bustician. This series (I am not making this up, I swear) follows the wacky hijinks of two women who work in an aesthetic spa, helping women to increase their bust sizes. (Sean, I’ll leave that one to you. Let me know how it is.)

    Oshima’s quite busy lately, what with this, the High School Girls’ sequel, and her autobiographical comic in Manga Action.

    “Bustician”?!!! That sounds like the greatest occupation ever!!!

    I should have been finished with the first episode of ‘Kiddy Girl-And’, but a part of me went ahead and gave it one more go. However, episode 2 pretty much confirmed just how beyond mentally impeded this series is. Whatever (for lack of a better word) charm ‘Kiddy Grade’ and ‘Uta Kata’ had, it wasn’t here. At all.

    I’m glad I read this when I did; I didn’t notice the sale that RightStuf had up for Maria-sama, until I read your entry..! Thanks for the heads-up ;D, considering I’ve been meaning to by the series for quite some time ;P.
