Other News

In case, you missed it yesterday, I highlight a few of the best Yuri anime and manga that has been or is about to be released in English on the Okazu 2012 Yuri Gift Guide. Please take a look!

No Straight Lines: 4 Decades of Queer Comics is destined to become a definitive book for fans of LGBT history and Western Independent comics.

Just in time for your holiday wishlist here are a couple of translated artbooks of interest:  Vertical is publishing The Queen’s Blade Visual Collection, while UDON is putting out the ROD Official Archive.

From the Yuricon Mailing List, Polish Yuri and BL manga anthology, Cold Desire, is looking for submissions.

The Entertainment Club lives up to its name as Yuru Yuri is holding yet another special event and celebration, with even more goods for fans to spend their money on.

Manga translator Ana Moreno discusses her experience with Morinaga Milk’s GIRL FRIENDS on her blog, Manga Gunkan.


Yuri Manga

Michiru and Maya are at a breaking point. Will they part forever or find something to keep them together? Find out in Ohana Holo Holo, Volume 4. (オハナホロホロ)

The story of two girls, their cameras and burgeoning feelings continues in Kanoujo to Camera to Kanjoujo no Kisetsu. The first volume of this was surprisingly good. (彼女とカメラと彼女の季節)

Tsubomi (つぼみ), Volume 21 hits shelves in December. I’m still kind of amazed that this anthology has survived and here it is heading into its 5th year!

Hayate x Blade (はやて×ブレード 17), Volume 17 also graces our lives in December and we are that much the better for it. ^_^

No more Yuri than it ever was, but FYI  Hidamari Sketch, Volume 7 (ひだまりスケッチ) also has a December street date.

And one last “that’s still on going?” for us, Morita-san ha Mukuchi Volume 6  (森田さんは無口) came out this week. 6 volumes of one joke – admittedly funny volumes, but wow.

Ohzawa Amane’s shorts for Hirari Magazine have been collected into Kano x Kano (彼女×彼女カノカノ).


That’s a wrap for this week!
