Coming up from Ichijinsha next month are the collections Twin Kick (ツインケイク) by Aoii Hana, Renai Higan Nekomedou Kokoro Tan (恋愛彼岸〜猫目堂ココロ譚〜) by Shinonome Mizuo and, of course the May volume of Comic Yuri Hime (コミック百合姫5月号).
And here’s some uber-exciting news: Yuri manga legend WAKO has a new Yuri story in Ai no Taiken Special Deluxe, April Issue, entitled “Love Birthday.”
Snatches of Yuri
Two new collections from Honey and Honey creator, Takeuchi Sachiko will be of interest to those people who like her work: Meisou Love Game (迷走ラブゲーム), which appears to be more questionably amusing real-life tales about her and her boyfriend, whom you may remember from Otoko ni Naritai. The reason I say “questionably” is that he was a jerk to her in the first book and this book seems to cover his having affairs, which I personally would not find entertaining at *all.*
Also from Takeuchi is Hana Yori Jyoshi (花より女子) which covers “team love” in the lesbian world, like events at bars and group dates.
There is a “new”.hack series, .hack/Quantum that appears to have a smidgen of Yuri, notably in the Drama CD.
And just in case you can’t get enough great heroes being turned into buxom girls, Shin Koi Hime Musou has been turned into a manga. Why? I don’t know.
Also to be filed under “why?” is the shift in Sabagebu, which is running currently in Nakayoshi, (and which will be a future review) towards the Yuri side. “Sabagebu” is short for “Survival Game Club” and it is quite chock full of wtf. I’m really liking the direction Nakayoshi‘s taking these days. ^_^
That’s a wrap for this week.
