Yuri Manga

It’s a festival of blossoms, today. The Endless Room saga from the Tsubomi anthology has been released as a collected volume. (Room in a hotel, all the people who stay in it, their lives and loves…)

Also from Tsubomi, comes Tandem Lover, a story I thought started off crudely, but then softened up quite a bit. And Kuroyome, another Tsubomi series that I can remember nothingwhatsoever about, has got a collected volume, too.

And, while I’m at it, the 10th volume of Tsubomi itself is available now, and Volume 11 will be available in April.

The fourth volume of Pure Visual Yuri Anthology Hirari, will be hitting shelves in April, as well. (Wow, a non-Hobunsha title.)

From the creator of MAKA-MAKA and Mars no Kiss, Torajirou Kish,i comes a new story hailed by all the Japanese Yuri lists, Otome no Teikoku. It’s a Young Jump title, but there’s a synposis on the Business Jump website that boils down to “schoolgirls gone wild.” Ho-hum.

Hobunsha, the publisher of Tsubomi is re-releasing Hakamada Mera’a Saigo no Seifuku in two volumes. Volume 1 and Volume 2. (Tecnically, they are the Upper and Lower volumes, so don’t be surprised if the entries on Amazon JP does not say Volume 1 or Volume 2.)

Back to the bizarro world for a moment, in which Oka’s  Hen is being reissued. I know Gantz is a huge hit, but do they really expect the audience for that to be interested in this? Lucky for Yuri fans, though, who can get a copy of this long out of print Yuri story.

And to end this section, something for me – Rakuen Le Paradis, Volume 5 will be available at the very end of February.

Snatches of Yuri

Of possible interest to Yuri fans is Onee-sama ha Budokai de Odoru. Could be good, could be typical, JP Yuri lists rated it with a high Yuri temperature.

Onna no ko no Naisho Hanashi Collection has a horrible title, but a line-up of names that write Yuri or almost-Yuri, an,d so, if you are the kind of person who still insists on believing that there’s a secret world behind the gauze curtain and you’re getting a peep or two…this will likely be a perfect book for you.

That’s a wrap for this week.
