This is the kind of news that makes me glad to be alive: Scott Green at Crunchyroll News notes ” the National Federation of All Japan Guide Dog Training Institution has followed a couple of years of Puella Magi Madoka Magica posters with one depicting Bodacious Space Pirates‘ Marika walking a candidate puppy.”
Thanks to the eagle-eyed Erin S. for this one: Digital Manga Publishing has listed Sweet Blue Flowers Vol. 1 on their Upcoming Titles. I’ve asked them to keep me in the loop if they get any other Yuri titles. So the series may be ending this summer in Japan, but here’s a sign that it may be rescued here. I’ll keep you informed if there’s any new news.
For folks with mailing addresses in Japan, Ichijinsha is selling the Comiket promotional collections Sayuri Hime 2-6 for 1000 yen each on their website.
YNN Correspondent DM00 says, “Crunchyroll is adding (at least part of) R.O.D. the TV to their streaming collection. Premium members get the first 13 episodes, while free members get 3 per week.” R.O.D. The TV was the first anime series I ever awarded a score of 10 to here on Okazu. If you have never watched it, I hope you will. It’s quite wonderful.
Two things of note in finance this week. The US Senate passed an Internet sales tax. I’m going to be honest – I have no objection paying tax. Had this law been passed a few years ago, we might still have book stores.
And, as of the moment I am writing this, the dollar passed the yen once again, for the first time in some years. If you’ve been holding off buying from Amazon JP or visit Japan, now is a very good time to do so.
That’s a wrap for this week! Become a Yuri Network Correspondent by sending me any Yuri-related news you find. Emails go to anilesbocon01 at hotmail dot com. Not to the comments here, please, or they might be forgotten or missed. There’s a reason for this madness. This way I know you are a real human, not Anonymous (which I do not encourage – stand by your words with your name!) and I can send you a YNN correspondent’s badge. Thanks to all of you – you make this a great Yuri Network!
