Quick recap of this week’s top news: Shoujo anime is hot again.
CLAMP’s wonderful anime Cardcaptor Sakura is getting a Blu-Ray release and the third set of Riyoko Ikeda’s melodrama Dear Brother was fully funded on Animesols, so that will also be available for purchase when it gets a release date.
Sailor Moon Crystal is confirmed for 26 episodes, with a biweekly release schedule.
Niki Smith spotted Eros/Psyche on the Tokyopop Germany website. The artist, Maria Llovet, she tells me, is Spanish, and the book was first published in France. I hope one of our French or German readers will consent to doing a review!
From Pure Yuri Anthology Hirari, March saw the release of Hakoniwa Cosmos (箱庭コスモス) by Kuwata Noriko.
Girls Love Festival, the all-Yuri doujinshi show in the Tokyo area, has announced October 19, 2014 as the date for the 12th such event! Good on them for keeping it going. ^_^ Check out the cover for the Sailor Moon Yuri only section, by Amano Shuninta! I’m strongly considering going to this one…hmmm.
Comitia 108 is coming up on May 5th and with it a lot of original Yuri works, as well. Here’s a Pixiv preview of a Yuri doujinshi by Kano and a Yuri doujinshi by Himekawa Yukiko. (You’ll need a Pixiv login to read them…and, just a reminder, they are in Japanese.)
Rocket 24 found an artist that imagines the Sailor Senshi as lingerie models. Why not.
