By email from Rinnne Aokaze, who is a scenario designer for games in Japan. He wants us to know about a Yuri 18+ game that has just launched 「彼女と彼女と私の七日」- Her and Her and Me – Seven Days With the Ghost. They are on Twitter here, if you want to chat with the circle who created it. Those of you who buy and play ero-games, I hope you’ll try this one and maybe write up a review, huh?
Itazura Choucho (悪戯ちょうちょ) looks Yuri, but it looks depressing as hell, too. At least the mope on the cover does little to convince me it is full of light and joy.
Lily Friend (リリィフレンド) is listed as a “Yuri Novel,” but as the main character is a guy who has a sis-con, I’m not convinced it’ll be a “good story.”
Katherine Hanson has an interesting look at Yuri characters who are out to their families in Manga on her Yuri no Boke blog.
Vertical is taking votes for license requests and Aoi Hana is on the list. If you’re on Facebook, let them know you’re interested!
Don’t forget to let JManga know you’re interested in Yuri from Hobunsha, while you’re at it. Drop by their free previews page and “like” Himitsu by Otome Megane. Read the free preview, while you’re there!
Last and totally least, Okazu has won the next round whatever Aniblog Tourney totally pwning Reverse Thieves. Thank you to everyone who voted! Next round will be against some other blogs, because this kind of thing is as endless as the NCAA tournament. In my imagination, Okazu and Yuri no Boke go head to head for the championship and then we’ll see who is loyal or not………….. (^_^)
The Japanese government is soliciting overseas entries for the 6th International Manga Awards. The site is in English, so if you are an aspiring artist, give it a try!
That wraps it up for this week.
