Yuri-ish Anime

Our top story this week is that Diskotek Media has announced the release of the 1973 original Cutie Honey anime TV Series.  Kisaragi Honey is the first Japanese superheroine who didn’t need a guy. How cool is that? Very cool. ^_^

Sentai Filmworks is going to release Special A with a dub.

Not sure if anyone cares anymore, but ANN has the 2nd Queen’s Blade: Vanquished Queens trailer is up for viewing.

Yuri-ish Manga

Seven Seas announced that they’ve obtained the license to Strike Witches:Maidens in the Sky and Girls und Panzer manga. YNN correspondent Shannon L also noted that they said they’re reprinting GIRL FRIENDS: The Complete Collection.

ANN reports that Tezuka’s Princess Knight is getting yet another manga remake. This one looks way better than the last. You can decide for yourself – Episode 0 is online on the magazine’s website. The Princess Knight anime from Nozomi RightStuf is also now available.

More fun watching – this fan movie. Just watch it…and smile.

The last days of the Revolutionary Girl Utena exhibit in Japan are approaching. Get your fix in soon!

Ian attended my Yuri Panel at Anime Next 2013 and had some nice things to say about it. Now I know what my new haircut looks like. ^_^

Alex Wu put together this nice guide to fan culture in general and Comic-Con, specifically, using questions and answers on Quora. Check it out. It’s worth a look.

Oh, and here’s something cool – a Pinterest item about Miss Fury, the first American superhero written by a woman.

    Nice!

    I’m a big fan of New Cutey Honey, so I’m looking forward to seeing the original series finally get it’s time in the spotlight.

    I’m also looking forward to Princess Knight. It’s actually quite some fun!

    A Girl Friends reprint must mean it did well for them. That’s fantastic news.

    Erica, did I miss a note about the Hayate X Blade 2 reports? I figured you’d definitely be interested in that if you hadn’t seen.
