Yuri Network News – June 2, 2012

Yuri Manga

The third and final volume of GUNJO by Nakamura Ching is on sale! (羣青 下 ). This series still remains the most amazing manga I have ever read. I hope you’ll support the artists and buy the book.

Fujieda Miyabi’s Twinkle Saber Nova, Volume 4 (special edition) is up on Amazon.JP. I’ll be honest, I didn’t even realize this was continuing!

Distressing news from Tsubomi, Higashiyama Show’s Prism is suspended for the moment because of concerns about plagiarism from photos on the Web.

Yuri Anime

Okazu Superhero Eric P. wants you all to know that the trailer for Funimation’s reissue of Yoshitoshi Abe’s Haibane Renmei is live on its own webpage, along with episodes available to watch online. (You’ll need to have registered and endured their horribly slow site, but for free streaming, it’s a decent deal.)

    I watched Haibane Renmei often and loved it deeply. But I hadn’t sensed any Yuri in it. Where did I miss the point?

    Hi!

    I just noticed this news clip http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18256087 on independent bookstores in the U.S. and I wonder what you think of it. :) How much of this do you think is applicable to selling translations of comics in the U.S., and how much isn’t?

    If it is Higashiyama Show who is in trouble for plagiarism that is weird. Getting into trouble for something like that when you consider everything else they seem to draw other than Prism…

  4. @Anonymous – Some fans (myself included) liked to see an intense emotional connection between the two leads, some didn’t. It’s how you look at it.

    @Anonymous – I don’t really have time or inclination to watch videos, but I can say this – in the vast areas of American covered by malls, there are few independent bookstores. Thos work better in cities and where they already have a strong following. Nothing about book selling in stories will have next to anything to do with manga, which is a niche of a niche.
