Top Story this week is via YNN Correspondents Shannon L and David M: Seven Seas has announced that they’ve licensed Morinaga Milk’s Gakuen Polizi. I have two things to note about that: 1) I’m glad it’s not Himitsu no Recipe, because that’s pretty dire so far and; 2) They’re using my transliteration of the title. I told you it looked stylish. ^_^
The September issue of Comic Yuri Hime (コミック百合姫) has a 3-D cover and back to pushing Namori’s Yuri Yuri.
Not-Yuri, but fans of Otsu Hiyori might want to get the Comic Rex collection, Otomodachi kara Hajimemashou (お友達からはじめましょう) by Otsu-sensei.
Once again a heads-up from Shannon, that Media Blaster’s release of Yamibo – Darkness, the Hat and the Travelers of the Books is slated for late October.
YNN Correspondent Joel K wants you to know Aniplex US has posted a trailer for the third installment of the Madoka Magica movie trilogy with English subtitles. He says, “The movie, set for international release on October 26th, 2014, will consist of all new material and will be told from the perspective of Homura-chan. The film will be distributed in the US by Warner Brothers and will be played in a (yet unknown) number of theaters across the country during the upcoming winter season.”
Via – I think, my Twitter feed – Missing Monday is a really nice little webcomic by Elle Skinner. “Missing Monday is a coming of age webcomic that follows Foyle Leaf and her growing relationship with Monday Rhodes, a girl from another world who appears one day through a doorway in an abandoned clocktower.”
Yuri Drama CD
An independently produced Yuri Drama CD, Kyouka-san Yuri Ryoudoku, (Kyouka-san’s Yuri Recitation) has a promotional video up on NicoNico Douga (you’ll need to be registered and logged in to hear it.)
I’ve been meaning to tell you this – mistress of manga knowledge and gift-giving, Deb Aoki, has a new blog and if you care at all about manga, you should bookmark it and read it. MangaComicsManga is, as the name suggests, two-thirds manga, one-third comics.
More really interesting reading, Adam B. Vary looks at the question Why Aren’t There More Gay Superheroes? over at Buzzfeed. He’s only looking at Marvel/DC, so don’t get bent out of shape that Uranus and Neptune aren’t mentioned. ^_^
Also totally worth reading, missturdle’s article, On the importance of Magical Girl Heroines & Weaponized Femininity, which is a nice discussion of how magical girls have and keep their own agency.
One more, because…cool! Chocolates For Breakfast, a 1956 lesbian novel has been re-released by Harper Perennial, with the scandalous(!) section that had originally been cut from the American edition. Read about the author – and that juicy (not really, but) section on AfterEllen.
