Yuri Manga

Ikuhara Kunihiko has launched a Mawaru Penguindrum manga project called Penguinbear, some two years after the anime ran in Japan. (The Penguindrum anime was licensed in English by Sentai Filmworks and is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray,Part 1 and Part 2. Don’t miss it, it’s very interesting. ^_^)

Thanks to your support, Fujieda Miyabi’s slice-of-life Yuri romance Ameiro Kouchakan Kandan, is the number one best seller on JManga this week! I haven’t heard anything about Volume 2 yet, but here’s hoping. ^_^

From Wings Comics comes a collection of a Hirari contributor, Sasada Asuka’s, works the Sasada Asuka Collected Shorts Kira Kira no Natsu (ささだあすか短篇集 きらきらのなつ)

Yurist (百合人―ユリスト―第1号) has an utterly creepy cover, so I have no idea what the inside of this mook will contain. Could be interesting…could be not. ^_^;

Back in print is Suzumoto Beni’s Puppy Love, cover by Hibiki Reine. I previously reviewed Suzumoto’s Ibara-hime, also with a cover by Hibiki. It wasn’t bad, so I’ll give this one a try.

Onna no Ko Sekkeizu, (女の子の設計図) a Hirari collection, hits shelves in Japan next month. And Pure Yuri Anthology Hirari, Volume 10 does, as well.

Other News

Hooded Utilitarian‘s Noah Berlatsky wrote a piece on The Ethics of Scanlation for the Center for Digital Ethics and Policy. It’s a very good summation of a complex issue, with contributions from Mangablog‘s Brigid Alverson and myself.
