In Hana to Hoshi 2 (花と星), the high powered ping-pong rivalry that might be love continues, now as a love triangle.
In Ohana Holo Holo, Volume 4, (オハナホロホロ) Maya learns that her feeling are not as dead as she thought they were.
Rakka Ryuusui (落花流水) has a seventh volume hitting the selves in November.
K-ON! has two collections, K-ON! College, (けいおん! college) which follows the 4 principles of the anime in college and K-ON! Highschool, (けいおん! high school) which follows Azusa, Jun and Ui in their senior year in high school.
Also streeting in November is Girl’s Ride, (ガールズライド) a Tsubomi Comic collection.
More Yuri Hime Comics on the way too, starting with Kodama Naoko’s Fujiyuu Sekai (不自由セカイ).
Kawasumi Hiroshi may have finally written the Yuri sports manga we’ve been waiting for. In Kaze Yori Saku (風より疾く) Volume 1 a rivalry blooms, and in Volume 2, it looks awfully like more. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
And to finish off this week, from Comic Natalie comes this fun tidbit – Fujieda Miyabi was chosen to do the poster for the Fall Headphone Festival in Tokyo. (High-quality headphones are a boom right now both here in the west and Japan, in case you were wondering “why?”.) Like most male-dominated things, this particular boom is accompanies by art and photos of cute girls wearing headphones. You may have already seen Vocaloids in some of the more popular models. It’s all moe to someone.
New York Comic Con is coming next weekend – I’ll have Rica and my schedule up sometime this week. She’ll be doing signings and I’ll be doing some giveaways!
That’s a wrap for this week!
