YNN_MariKYuri Anime

How excited was I to read on ANN that Crunchyroll is streaming all 70 episodes of Card Captor Sakura? Ridiculously happy. I have the Tokyopop release, but they had some technical issues with the last two volumes and I’d love to just watch it in HD. NIS is re-releasing the series on 3 DVDs sets (Set 1, Set 2 and Set )3 and a Hybrid Blu-ray set . I’m of the opinion that the BD for this series should be worth it. When CLAMP is good, they are very good. ^_^ The stream starts August 12. I can’t wait!

The Yuyushiki anime series is being released by Sentai Filmworks on DVD and BD, as well.

It’s not Yuri, specifically, but there’s a *lot* of Yuri doujinshi for Kantei Collection, (Kancolle for short)  and it is, not terribly surprisingly, getting an anime. Fujieda Miyabi is spearheading one suchdoujinshi anthology, also not terribly surprisingly. ^_^ (This isn’t being shipped outside Japan, unfortunately. I’d like to see it.)

The good folks at ANN spotted the Yuru Yuri OVA trailer out in the wild ahead of it’s November Japan theatrical release.

Victoria McNally recaps Episode 3 of Sailor Moon Crystal with Yuri goggle set on “not all that high, really” and still sees plenty of Yuri. ^_^

LGBTQ Manga/Comics

Via YNN Correspondent Elizabeth F., the “Pathfinder comics has a fabulous lesbian couple as the leads.”

Volume 6 and Volume 7 of Shimura Takako’s Wandering Son are, somewhat amazingly, for sale. I’m not sure how these are doing for Fatagraphics, but I’d love to see them blow sales records out of the water.  Volume 7 was as far as I’ve heard about, what with their kickstarter last year. It would be a bloody shame if this series stops short here. Do buy these, please.

Other News

Because some folks really seem to like this kind of thing, here s Fudanjuku, a “woman as boys” pop idol group video, that feels like the beginning of a bishounen game. ^_^

You may have heard that Cosmopolitan magazine has tried their hand at lesbian sex tips. Well, here’s an actual lesbian’s attempt at using them. (NSFW, funny as hell.)

    As an added newsbit, Funimation just announced at Otakon the acquired home media rights for ‘Riddle Story of Devil’, as well as license-rescues for ‘Haruhi Suzumiya’ and ‘Lucky Star’!

    With this new show, Strike Witches, and Girls und Panzer, the full land-sea-air trifecta of military moe is complete. (I doubt you’ll find Kancolle any more appealing than the other two.)

    Hi Erica I just finished my reveiw of the new CCS blu ray set. It basically compares the old pioneer DVDs to the new set. I’d love to send it to you. How and where should I send it?
