Welcome to the final Yuri Network News of 2014! Before we move on with the news, I want to stop and thank all of you who have sent in Yuri-related news over the past year, my trusted YNN Correspondents – and a special shoutout to our Senior YNN Correspondents, Erin S. and Grizsnak, who have really been pulling out the stops this year. Thanks to all of you – you make this a great Yuri Network!
ANN has the third Yuri Kuma Arashi trailer up for our perusal. A plot seems to have been settled on. A plot idea, anyway. (Crunchyroll adds in some Christmas-themed logos and art from Morishima-sensei and Twitter.)
Back to ANN for this amusing note – DLE is streaming Frogman’s Rose of Versailles parody shorts which are highly amusing.
And again ANN reports Non Non Byori is getting a second anime season.
Via Jennifer Camper, grab a hold of this LGBTQ comics collection by Side by Side, the first ever of it’s kind in Russia.
Via YNN Senior Correspondent Erin S. we have a webcomic with fairies and witches called Gay Birds by Mariana S. Costa.
Not necessarily LGBTQ, but ass-kicky and interesting, webcomic Princess Retribution has a kickstarter to collect and print all five volumes as a GN.
Japanese TV Talent Ichinose Ayaka, whose public coming out was accompanied by the creation of a manga called Real Bian, has just announced her impending marriage ceremony and a desire for it to *not* be merely a ceremony, but to be accompanied by actual rights. The fight, my friends, is on. It’s going to be a slow one, but this is the opening round.
I am not the only person obsessed with crossing King Arthur and Sailor Moon! Yay! Next time you want a fix of archetypes being all archetypical, check out my Courtly Tales of Crystal Tokyo series and cap it off with Studiodisa’s Holy Avenger Sailor Moon art!
And because I’m in the mood, here’s a link to some Sailor Uranus/Neptune Korra/Asami crossover art by Sleepy Senshi. It’s kind of obvious who the artist thinks is the most confident in each couple. ^_^
You need this Youtube cut of Japanese female metal bands. I don’t consider them all metal, but some sound pretty darn good.
And I know you need to watch io9’s supercut of Super Sentai heroines transforming. Obviously.
Balogun has put together a nifty list of 10 Black Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists I’d Love to Work With (or work with again)! The art and links are fantastic, go click, read, think, buy, fan at.
Coming up, it’s time for our Top Ten Lists of 2014! I wonder what I’ll write? ^_^

Not to the comments here, please, or they might be forgotten or missed. There’s a reason for this madness.

Thanks to all of you – you make this a great Yuri Network!
