Snatches of Yuri
The second Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha movie trailer is streaming for your squeeing. I cannot express how much I am looking forward to Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A’s 2nd. On the topic of Nanoha, if I had $300 I could afford to throw away, I would so buy this.
Queen’s Blade is streaming special introductions to the new characters on their Queen’s Blade Rebellion website.
You probably all saw this while I was at MangaNEXT, but a completely new R.O.D. series, Read or Die Rehabilitation is in the works. This is not an alternate universe, it’s a completely different story, that promises to be darker than the original. As the original manga and novels were quite dark, I’m concerned that this may be “torture the characters instead of have a plot” territory. Of all the R.O.D. properties, the original manga was probably the weakest. On the other hand, Read or Dream turned out pretty decent, so I’ll keep expectations at a minimum and judge it when I see it. ^_^
Shinyuu to Watashi no Sukina Hito (心友と私のスキな人) sounds like a somewhat frustrating relationship between two girls who are super close until one falls for a guy. I’m told that the end is a happy one (for us.) It ran in Sho-Comi magazine, so anything is possible.
Centaur no Ayami (セントールの悩み) Volume 2, goes off the charts with Centaur Yuri. I just don’t know if I can bring myself to read this. I much prefer to to not ever think of centaurs in middle school, much less having sexual relations.
Hinata Cafe Youkoso (ひなたＣａｆｅへようこそ) is getting high Yuri scores from blogs I disagree with. I’m not seeing pandering dressing-undressing scenes as “Yuri” but perhaps it’s another girl leering or something. Whatever.

And good news for me at least, Kimi no Tamenara Shineru (姫のためなら死ねる), Volume 2 will be hitting the shelves in April. I’ll get you a link as soon as possible, so you can not miss the wacky adventures of slacker Sei Shonagon and Murasaki Shikibu.
That wraps it up for this week.
