Snatches of Yuri
In the June issue of Nakayoshi, magazine “Your Melody (キミノネイロ) starts off with two girls kissing and a chapter-load full of ambiguous feelings…and no real plot. I don’t imagine this is meant to be a “Yuri” series, but you have to admit that Nakayoshi has been turning up the heat these days with lily-scented stories.
Horror comic Naname no Ongaku II (ななめの音楽) looks pretty darn Yuri.
And Machikado Hana da Yori (街角花だより) is scoring high on Japanese Yuri lists.
On her blog, Morinaga Milk-sensei debuts the cover of Comic High magazine with the first reprinted chapter of Kuchibiru Tameiki Sakurairo.
The 15th volume of Hayate x Blade special edition, will include a HxB doujinshi by Hayashiya-sensei! I’ve been a fan of her doujinshi work as Jesus Drug for ages, so I’m dying to see what she does with her own characters.
Italian Yuri fans have something to celebrate – the Italian language edition of Rica Takashima’s Rica ‘tte Kanji!? is now available from RenBooks. To celebrate, they created this adorable commercial spot:
From Twitter, Deb Aoki points us to the Today Show website’s article “From Kevin Keller to Batwoman, gay characters take center stage in comic books.” While I think “taking center stage” is obvious hyperbole, it does seem that gay and lesbian characters are more open than previously.
That’s a wrap for this week.
