Yuri Network News – (百合ネットワークニュース) – October 4, 2014

YNN_LissaYuri Events

Quick reminder that the next two weeks there will be no YNN, as I’ll be reporting from Geek Girl Con and Girls Love Fest one after the other.

If you are going to be in Japan for the Kaigai Festival, consider popping over to Kyoto for Fairy’s Residence, a Yuri event that appears to be replacing Maiden’s Garden in that city.

The Queers & Comics Conference is accepting proposals for their May 2015 event! Get your panel or workshop suggestions in today.

Not specifically LGBTQ, but the MoCCA event in NYC has also announced April dates and a new location. I find great indie stuff there every year,


Yuri Anime

ANN reports that the voices for the leads in upcoming anime Yuri Kuma Arashi have been cast and that the staff for the Lyrical Nanoha Vivid anime has been chosen. They have the preview for the Yuru Yuri anime OAV that is getting a theater release in late November.

ANN also reports on a winter Psycho-Pass movie with the writing team of Urubochi and Fukami once again.

The Sasamekikoto anime  is getting a Blu-Ray Box  release in Japan.

And Maria-sama ga Miteru is also getting Limited Edition Complete Series Blu-Ray Box set release! So tempting….


Yuri Digital Comics/Webcomics

Denise Schroeder’s fun little “Story A” Yuri comic Before You Go,  is now available on Comixology. Publisher Chromatic Press reports brisk sales and in a recent Facebook update hinted that there was more Yuri ahead.

YNN Senior Correspondent Erin S. has a follow-up to Mira Ongchua’s the mermaid and the sailor, which has now been enhanced and is available for download, for pay what you want. And she suggests we all take a look at Carey Pietsch’s The Witch’s Daughter.

From the Queer Comic group, I found Minority Monsters, “They didn’t know they existed, until they found. themselves.” They include Madame Lucie Decline the Asexual Succubus, Sir Fabulous the Bisexual Unicorn, Queen Ravishment the Polyamorous dragon and others. Totally wonderful. ^_^

Heidi MacDonald at The Comics Beat pointed out this free downloadable comic, Under The Apple Tree, by Sarah Winifred Searle about a time-traveling teen girl. You know what to do.


Yuri Manga

Seven Seas has added Non Non Biyori manga to their line-up, so fans of that anime will be happy. ^_^


 Other News

Comic Artist Mari Naomi has written an illustrated guide to Writing People of Color, (if you happen to be a person of another color.) If you are a writer of any kind, please read this and share it widely. It’s entertaining and helpful.

From Comic Natalie we learn that Sailor Moon isn’t the only series getting the premium accessory treatment. Check out this cute CardCaptor Sakura clutch bag bundled with the December issue of Nakayoshi magazine.

        Ohhh I see, now I understand why there aren’t pictures on the internet, thank you very much, and thanks for the answer, Erica!! uhm, Do you know more Yuri events on Japan? or How could search them in japanese?

        • I just did a post on LGBTQ friendly evnts. I’mon mobile right now, so just look at the events category on the sidebar. Fairy’s residence is the only other one I know right now. A good way to learn about events is follow Girls Love Fes on Twitter. They post about events of interest.
