ANN reports that Universal Studios Japan is hosting the K-ON! cast accompanying an installation of life-sized (but not realistically proportioned) statues of the characters. The K-ON! movie debuted today in Japan yesterday. ^_^ I’m pretty sure I heard the screaming over here.
If you’re around Ikebukuro at then end of the year, take a trip over to Sunshine City, where in the Cultural Hall you’ll find a Madoka Magica Exhibit. A map has been released with exhibit info. (The first time I ever walked into that space, there was a Sailor Moon festival going on. You cannot tell me there wasn’t a god involved with that. ^_^)
The 2nd Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha movie will have a summer release. I cannot wait. Sadly I won’t make it over there to see it, so will have to wait for the DVD release again. Boo-hoo.
And fans of Strike Witches will be thrilled to hear that the second Box Set will include an English dub and subtitles.
Now this sounds a bit different, in a completely not different way – Centaur no Ayami ( セントールの悩み) is a typical highschool Yuri love story, starring magical creatures. The heroine is, as the title spoils, a centaur. If you’re a hooves and horns fan, this looks like a good bet. I’m on the fence about it, myself, so if you do get it and want to write a review, let me know!
Morita-san ha Mukuchi (森田さんは無口) is headed for a 5th volume.
OKS books is putting out an 18+ Yuri collection called Shiroyuri Girls Love Paradise (白百合Girls Love Paradise). This is explicitly (hah hah) targeted towards guys, so I’d expect lots of uncomfortable groping and bodily fluids, and less pleasant-looking sex.
Liar, the folks that brought us Sapphism no Gensou has a new Yuri game, Okujou no Yurirei-san. Erm, “Yuri Spirits on the Roof.” Cute art, I’d love to have a review of this too, if someone is planning on getting it.
In a blatant attempt to prove that I really do read manga that has nothing at all to do with Yuri, I’ve written an article for Hooded Utilitarian this month that teaches you how to be a pretentious git about food and drink, the manga way: Eat, Drink, Read Manga.
That’s a wrap for this week.
