Okazu in 2015 – It’s All About You (and Yuri)

January 4th, 2015

Hello! It’s already been an amazing 2015 and we’re 4 days in. We started the year with a look at the comics ecosystem in which we live, and already, we have a Yuri Network that is already kicking into gear with one event report – and another to come – interviews, Guest Reviews and eventually I’ll get to tell you about the cool books I just finished. ^_^ I should be exhausted thinking about it all, but instead I’m excited and energized and inspired.

So, to share with you my thoughts on you – and all that we’re doing here on Okazu and Yuricon, I’ve recorded a video to let you know how far we’ve come and where we’re headed and how you can help us get there! We’re already working on giving the Yuricon Shop the facelift it deserves – I can’t wait for you to be able to you, know, browse and search in different ways and do stuff that the Amazon shop interface never really gave us. When we make that second goal on Okazu’s Patreon, we’re gonna have a kick-ass Shop unveiling, with prizes and lollipops and balloons. (Well, maybe not balloons, they don’t ship well, but lollipops are still a possibility.)

So thank you and I hope you’ll watch this video. It took me 14 takes to get it right. I was halfway to throwing the camera into the street and cheering when it was run over by a car. Rude language may have been used, too. So please watch the damn thing. Thanks. (^_^)

    You said in the video that the first two essays would be a “sneak preview”. Can I take this to mean the ultimate intention is to publish (or make available digitally) a fully English-translated version of the book?

    Because that is something I would be highly interested in purchasing.

    • No. We’ve got permission to translate a few for Yuricon essays page. but I’m not publishing anymore. It would be a nightmare to publish this book. Aside from the dozens of permissions and contracts, I’d sell 12 copies. It’s the very essence of “not worth the effort.”

      By “sneak peek” I mean, Patrons will get early access to the essays we have before they become publically available. We’re up to three and I hope to get a fourth.
