Top News (for me) this week: Hayate x Blade 2, Volume 1 (はやて×ブレード2), by Hayashiya Shizuru-sensei is a thing that exists right now in the universe! Whee! Hijinks and idiots at the new Tenchi Academy.

Sweet Blue Flowers (Aoi Hana) by Shimura Takako is available from DMP in Kindle format! Grab a copy while you can!

Hopefully by now, you’ve all had a chance to read Morinaga Milk’s Gakuen Polizi, Volume 1 in English (Amazon/ RightStuf), out from Seven Seas. Volume 2 is now available in Japanese, and for pre-order in English on Amazon.

Ikeda Takashi’s Yuri dramedy Whispered Words Volume 2 (Amazon/RightStuf) and Volume 3 (Amazon) are both available for pre-order!)

This coming week brings us a pile of Yuri Hime Comics: Kimi-iro Shoujo (キミイロ少女),  Pastel Days (ぱすてるディズ), Himitsu no Kakera (秘密のカケラ), and Hakkou Snowflake (薄光スノウフレーク).

Not Yuri, but of interest, ANN has the news that Dark Horse has licensed the Fate/Zero manga. I’ve read the first three volumes and its pretty much exactly like the anime, so we’ll get Fate being all cool and courtly to Irisviel at the very least. ^_^

Yuri Anime

ANN writes that there’s a new Ikkitousen series in the making. Ikkitousen: Extravaganza Epoch will be an OVA, going direct to Blu-Ray sometime soon presumably, as the official site says 2014.

Sailor Moon

Premium Bandai knows you’re sitting around wishing you had a cute little cosplay set of your fave Senshi…so thye went ahead and made you one of each. Sets include neckband, collar, pantiy and skirt. You’re on your own for a white leotard.

Footage from the second Sailor Moon MusicalPetite Étrangère is aavailableon the official Sailor Moon You Tube channel. ANN has the write-up!

LGBTQ News

The Smithsonian Museum has added a LGBTQ History collection to their Museum of American History which includes media of all kinds, from campaign buttons to protest posters to episodes of Will and Grace. (Don’t laugh, if you think about it, that sitcom, Ellen and other TV show were some people’s firsts exposure to LGBTQ people!)

The new DC TV show Gotham is slated to have Renee Montoya as the Latina lesbian detective we all know and love. Victoria Cartagena will play Renee and the actress is totally aware of what a positive representation means to viewers.

CBR put together a terrific look at LGBTQ comics for young readers that were present at SDCC.

    Yay for Renee Montoya. She’s one of my all time favorite comic book heroines. I love Hayate X Cross Blade so a second series is AWESOME.
