Yuri Manga

The first volume of Kawai Akira ‘s Bousou Girl’s Teki Mousou Renaiteki Suteki Project is (ボウソウガールズテキモウソウレンアイテキステキプロジェクト(B・G・M・R・S・P), Kurokiri Misao’s Inferno Girl, (インフェルノガール), both from Comic Yuri Hime hits shelves in Japan today along with other Yuri Hime comics.

Next month we’re getting something kinda cool….Fukami Makoto ‘s novel Girls Uprising (カズアキ×深見真百合姫表紙画集) which ran in the opening pages of the relaunched Comic Yuri Hime from 2011,  illustrated by Kazuaki’s awesome art. It was  a pretty crazy ass story, but of the written endeavors out of Ichijinsha so, so much better than most. For fans of Yuru Yuri‘s, namori, her illustrated Comic Yuri Hime cover story, truth, goes on sale next month as well.

Yuri Anime

This week we got news that another Comic Yuri Hime series was greenlit as an anime. Kuzushiro’s animal- and pun-themed gag manga, Inukami-san and Nekoyama-san should be here this year. YNN Correspondent “your friendly neighborhood Grisznak” says: visuals for the anime were revealed today. Thanks Grisznak!

Other News

I have two non-Yuri articles on tap this month. On Manga Bookshelf, I write about the third and most popular shoujo manga magazine, Ciao, for Magazine no Mori.

And I take a long, detailed look at Attack on Titan for Hooded Utilitarian. This is the follow-up I mentioned in the brief review I did here.

Thomas in Tokyo shared this picture of  the official Bodacious Space Pirates movie poster.

Fans of interesting female leads will be happy to know that David Weber’s Honor Harrington sci-fi novel series is being adapted into a comic and possibly some multimedia content as well by Top Cow and Evergreen Studios respectively.

Legend of Zelda, The Golden Ring and My Little Pony manga team, Himekawa Akira, has released some of their work on manga translation site Manga Reborn. Manga Reborn is still focusing on less well-known artists or less-well known titles by popular artists and, most interesting to me, they have been making Showa period manga available. Manga Reborn is legal and much of the manga is free. It’s a great resource, and all around great guy Taylor (Dude) runs it, you should check it out.

    So clearly it’s the even years that have all the Yuri now right? I’ve forgotten where we were in the past on-year/off-year for Yuri cycle so I’ll just assume that’s the case nowadays…

    A 4koma show with lots of bad puns too, is it wrong that I’m more interested at hearing that?
