Yay! Fu~Fu (ふ～ふ), Volume 2 is slated to hit shelves in Japan in April. Woot! Boo, Fu~Fu, Volume 2 is the final volume. But the ending is spectacular, I promise you. ^_^
YNN Correspondent Tomo K. wants you all to know “Dowman Sayman’s Nickelodeon Green (ニッケルオデオン 緑) came out last month. This is a collection of 13 short stories which were published in Shogakukan’s IKKI magazine. Each story is 8 pages long. Two of the stories have a Yuri twist.
In “Inshu Bancho”, a girl’s saliva suddenly turns to sake, so her female friends start kissing her to “have a drink”. In “Hikkii and Gakkii”, the class rep keeps bringing school handouts to her hikikomori classmate whose home is filled with trash. The two girls finally confess their feelings for each other when the ward office decides to come take away all the trash.
The series is still ongoing in IKKI.”
Thanks Tomo, we appreciate the heads up!
Via @tougehiro on Twitter, Miniskirt Space Pirates (Bodacious Space Pirates) is now a manga from Asahi Comics. Reviews are comparing it to the TV series and finding it lacking. The manga covers Volume 2 of the novels – the Golden Ghost Ship arc.
Rakuen Le Paradise (楽園 Le Paradis), Volume 11 is available, have you bought it yet? ^_^
Real Bian manga by Japanese gravure idol Ichinomiya Ayaka about her coming out as a real lesbian in the Japanese entertainment world is now available in full for free with download of the Zero One Viewer,(the green link in the middle). DL the viewer and choose the complete Real Bian from their menu – the title is in English, so it should be relatively simple. The book is in Japanese.
While I wasn’t looking Sabagebu (さばげぶっ) has gotten a Volume 3 and Volume 4. Volume 4 is supposed to be turning up the Yuri-o-meter to high. I wouldn’t be surprised, given the earlier volumes. (Here’s a refresher on the series, if you’ve forgotten the Survival Game Club.)
ROD REHABILITATION, Volume 1, with the new, completely different, Yomiko, goes on sale at the end of April.

One More Lesbian’s Lesbian Film Guide: Friends, Lovers and Other Complications covers Desiree Lim’s Sugar Sweet which I saw in San Francisco in 2002 and was released on DVD in 2011. If you missed it the first time around, check out this tale of true love and lesbian porn. ^_^
Hidamari Sketch‘s not-Yuri couple Hiro and Sae will be graduating in a very special episode this month. A promotional video for the episode is up on YouTube. If you like Hiro x Sae, you’re gonna want to watch it. ^_^
