Yuri Anime

Media Blasters has put the release of Ikkitousen: Great Guardians on indefinite hold. Not surprising, but not cheery news.

Nico Nico Douga will be streaming the first episode of the Shoujo Magi Madoka Magica anime with English dub, on February 10 at 11:30 p.m. EST. Other countries getting streams are Japan, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. I hope they’ll be streaming a sub too. Dub only means I’m watching it raw, if I can.

RightStuf has let me know that they have a countdown on the first two seasons of Maria Watches Over Us. This means that they are down to their last few hundred art-box copies of the anime. If you’ve been holding off, now is a great time to get this anime and spend some quality time with the ladies of Lillian Girl’s School. A quick looks tells me that Season 2 is down to just over 50 copies left, so don’t wait too long!

Not Yuri, but come on, if you didn’t love Hamutz Meseta in Book of Bantorra, you obviously weren’t paying attention. I so very desperately want a “Must kill Hamutsz Meseta” t-shirt. I told Sentai Filmworks so, since they’ve licensed it.

The wife is watching Inu x Boku on Crunchyroll and notes that Yuki-Onna is all over the girls in pervy-guy fashion, so if you’re looking for something new to watch, you might want to give that a try.

Yuri Manga

New one from Hakamada Mera Kanojou no Sekai (彼女の世界) from Ryuu Comics.

Chou no You ni, Hana no You ni, (蝶のように花のように) is an Yuri Office 4-koma. Yep, it had me at the word “office.” ^_^

Other News

Hrm, this is interesting, Yuri Hime is starting up a new Yuri novel series, starting in March. The first one to hit the shelves is Morita Kisetsu’s Note Yori Yasui Koi (ノートより安い恋)

And a third all-Yuri doujinshi event is proliferating. In May at Comitia 100, there will be a section of Yuri-only called Yuribu. Yuribu has a commercial on Youtube, how fun is that?

Didja ever wonder what the Yuri manga artists watch? Well, a bunch of them have been talking about 片思い FINALLY by SKE48. Here’s why:

That wraps it up for this week.

  1. I’m totally in favor of the dub. I know some people find that sacrilegious, but I find that with subs, I pay too much attention to reading the subtitles… a dub lets me pay attention to the art!

    Well besides a character acting like a “pervy guy,” is Inu x Boku actually any good?

    Speaking of Nico Nico streaming, have you watched episode 01 of Black Rock Shooter yet?

  3. @Felix- I don’t know. My wife is enjoying it, but we have very different tastes, so what she likes I may not. I haven’t watched it at all, yet.

    Haven’t had a chance to check out BRS, yet either. It’s been a busy week. ^_^

    @Felix- Inu X Boku is so far is a comedy/fan-service show that is not nauseating to watch. Mainly due to being genuinely funny and the service being evenly spread between both the beautiful girl/guy demographics.

    As far as Yuki-Onna goes she was interesting in the first episode but it later turned into just a repeat of the same gag and then turned pervy.

    @Mara – Thanks for the description.
