Yuri Anime

Nozomi/RightStuf announces the Limited Edition DVD release of the first half of Riyoko Ikeda’s timeless classic of the French Revolution, Rose of Versailles. Check out their RoV page rov.rightstuf.com for a series preview and ordering information!

And, don’t forget while you’re there to pre-order your copy of Aoi Hana/Sweet Blue Flowers.

A little disappointed with the current season of anime? A Certain Scientific Railgun continues this April in A Certain Scientific Railgun S. (Also, you should watch Psycho Pass, but that’s another thing.)

The Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha As The Second movie is due out on March 22 and DVD and Blu-ray will once again include English subtitles. (There are multiple choices for various Special Editions, so I’ll just link you to the regular “Special Edition” and not the super special or regular editions. Feel free to figure it out on your own. ^_^; (Yes, that is the sound of me giving up, funny you should mention it.)

Sentai Filmworks has licensed the K-ON! movie. (There is absolutely no Yuri in it, not even vague service, FYI, but it was fun.)

Hahahaha! Sentai also licensed Kämpfer. Gosh I know we were all waiting for that one. Here’s my take on that series from when it showed originally. The Entrails animals were seriously great, but it’s up to you whether they were great enough to make watching the series worthwhile.


Yuri Manga

YNN Correspondent from France, vero, reports two new Yuri manga licenses from Taifu – Nanzaki Iku’s Sweet Little Devil and Morinaga Milk’s Kushibiru Tameiki Sakurairo, which will be known as Secret Girlfriends.

As a number of folks have noted that the Girlfriends Collection, Volume 2 by Morinaga Milk is at #5 on the New York Times Manga best seller list. ^_^

ANN reports that Kodansha has listed the first volume of the Sailor Moon short story collections for September, after the main series is complete. The second volume is slated for November.



A fan of Yuru Yuri has created a 3-D replica of the Amusement Club’s  clubroom as a dollhouse.

    Hello Erica,

    The link for rov.rightstuf.com is incorrect – it will take you to http://www.blogger.com/rov.rightstuf.com.

  2. “Also, you should watch Psycho-Pass”

    I’m so glad you found it worth watching! ^^ It’s my favorite thing airing right now. (As you might have inferred from my prolific tweeting about it. ^^; It’s fun to discuss- and share fan art of it, especially Yayoi and Shion- with other fans.)

  3. @Anonymous – Fixed. Thank so much for catching that!

    @Katherine – I’m planning on blaming, erm, crediting, you for getting me to watch it when I get around to writing a review. ^_^

    Wow, this news are full of all the reasons why I’ll probably be broke till summer… in a good way, of course. I already preordered Aoi Hana, K-ON and Railgun (among other Yuri titles I needed catching up on) so the second season of Railgun has really good timing.
    Also, the fact that the Nanoha movies have English subs is probably the best news this year. (Ordered them as well, but I wish Japanese Blurays weren’t so darn expensive!)

    It’s also nice to see that Taifu keeps releasing Yuri. I’ve wanted to pick up some of their manga to brush up on my French, but didn’t get to as of yet. Sweet Little Devil will definitely change that.
    One correction, though. Secret Girlfriends is their name for the “Kisses, Sighs and Cherry Blossoms” manga, not Girlfriends (the article just mentioned it was from the same author)
    In the case of that one though, I’ll stick with the English release^^

    Thanks for the news, it’s always good to know what to spend my money on next :D

  5. @Tukomi – Thanks for the correction! It’s been fixed. ^_^

    “A Certain Scientific Railgun continues this April in A Certain Scientific Railgun S.”

    Anyone else wondering what they will cover in the second season? I hope they will do the sisters arc but then I am a fan of the Index novels, and the sisters arc may not be much fun to others as it is all about Misaka with little of the supporting cast.

    “Also, you should watch Psycho-Pass”

    Yes, yes you should. After F/0 and Madoka it is nice to see something with more of Urobuchi’s earlier work.
