Event

I’ll be speaking today at Montclair State University, for their annual Chibi Con. My talk is called Warp, Weft and Fringe: Expression and Interpretation in LGBTQ Manga and Comics, we’ll be exploring how we rewrite the narrative laid out by the artist as we read. I hope you can join us!

Yuri Anime

Sort of no surprise, really, ANN Reports that the new Sailor Moon anime has been delayed.

Aniplex USA has launched a new streaming anime channel via Hulu, with many popular anime series including, for our purposes, R.O.D. the TV, Fate/Zero, Vividred Operation and Madoka Magica. Presume regional restrictions, because duh.

Sentai Filmworks has licensed the Yuyushiki anime, which I have yet to watch. Anyone a fan and want to write a review?

Other News

This week, my career as a woman with an opinion on the Internet hit new weirdness with the publishing of my response to “Why Is Having a Rational Opinion Against Gay Marriage Considered “Homophobia”? on Slate.

And this has nothing to do with anything but my personal fetish for girl gangs…check out this photo essay of 1950’s British girls wearing Edwardian clothing known as the Teddy Girls. ^_^

  1. Thanks, but I’m looking for someone who is already a fan. I will eventually watch it myself, so at that point I could just write my own review. ^_^

    It’s very much in the same vein as YuruYuri. Slightly different dynamic, as there are only three principle characters, but so far it’s quite similar. I’m a fan of both shows, but I think a review would be quite short at this point. :) I’m following it on Crunchyroll.

    I’ll give it a few more episodes to develop and if no one else has stepped up, I’ll be happy to write something.

    Have you watched _Vividred Operation_? It’s cute… overly fanservice-ish, but in a way, a sly wink-and-nod parody of the whole magical girl genre.
