Bokura ha Minna Ikiteru! (ぼくラはミンナ生きテイル！) is being touted as a animal ear and Yuri high school story.
Kaname Etoile ( かなめエトワール) Joining the ranks of Nakayoshi and Ribon magazines is is Sho Comi. with this long-awaited ballet/ Yuri mashup we all knew had to be written eventually.
YNN Correspondent Jenna M points out a followup to a story in a May 2008 YNN report:
“Robin Brenner has just published some of her research with Snow Wildsmith on the relationships American LGBTQ fans have with Yaoi and Yuri, in a book called Mangatopia. The chapter is called “Love Through a Different Lens: Japanese Homoerotic Manga through the Eyes of American Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Other Sexualities Readers”.
The Google books preview is available here, but isn’t complete.” (Erica here – it shouldn’t be complete. People who want to read the book should buy it, or borrow it from their library system. Otherwise the authors don’t make money.)
Thanks Jenna for the update!
That’s a wrap for this week.
