Yuri Network News (百合ネットワークニュース) – April 26, 2014

April 26th, 2014

YNN_LissaLink dump week to clean up my piles of bookmarks!

One week left for the 3rd and final Dear Brother DVD set and just over 3K needed. Okay, folks, this is it. Let’s all throw a few more bucks at this thing and get it done!

April 27th will bring the NicoNico Douga Sailor Moon Event, so if you’re around at 3AM EST, check it out live!

For a slightly different audience, the women’s bar Goldfinger is co-hosting a lecture event about same-sex marriage travel packages at the Hotel Granvia in Kyoto. The poster made me “awww~~”

Nakamura Ching-sensei has a new real-life manga webcomic series called Nakamura Ching no Surechigai: We shuraba.

Yen Press announced the license of a title from Hakusensha’s edgy Rakuen: Le Paradis magazine! They are starting with the completely unedgy, excruciatingly adorable, completely heterosexual,  14-sai no Koi, Love at Fourteen, by Mizutani Fuka. It’s full of warm fuzzies and sweet nostalgia. I like it a lot. I’ll still keep my fingers crossed for Collectors, though. ^_^

Pure Yuri Anthology Hirari, Volume 13 (ピュア百合アンソロジー ひらり) hit shelves at the end of March and the second Hirari Special Volume School Club Anthology After School! (ひらり、別冊 部活アンソロジー ほうかご! (2)) hits the end of this month.

Ryan Holmberg writes a very interesting article on the Matsumoto Katsuji and the American Roots of Kawaii.

Komatsu Mikikazu-san over at Crunchyroll writes that drama-themed manga/anime series Hitohira is getting a stage play. This hurts my brain a little, as the main plot was that the lead couldn’t speak loudly enough to act.

Oh, darn it Bruce, we missed the Yuritetsu event. /mumblethankheavensmumble/

A Hayate x Blade/iPod commercial mashup that works for me. What do you think?

That seems to have cleared out the ole bookmark backlog!

    So happy another Yuri series is coming over to the states!

    The Yuritetsu event involved the unveiling of a specially decorated pink railcar on the Yuri Kogen Railway, covered in illustrations of the characters squirming away happily beside each other. In apparent seriousness the railway site calls this the beginning of a dream collaboration, though I’m not convinced that wobbly pre-K girls are what the managing board of the Yuri Kogen dream about, and if they are I don’t want to know. I do think this was a lost opportunity, it would have been fun to write up an event report.

    Woot! Dear Brother made it before the clock ticked over from days to hours. Still have a day to get the series at the crowdfund discount price of $30 per set … and note that when pledging for the third box set, you can add the first two at the crowdfund discount price of $30 each.
