Let’s see what the Yuri Network is doing this week!
Seven Seas has announced the license for Akuma no Riddle: Riddle Story of a Devil, with an Autumn 2015 release date.
Okazu readers in Japan might want to look at the new online manga magazine service that Amazon JP is launching for Kindle. Based on current region issues, I don’t expect we’ll be able to access it outside Japan. ^_^;
Comic Natalie reports Oiwa Kenji is launching a new Yuri fantasy in GUM magazine called “Aka to Ao no Ehrenberg”. (Thanks Orphireus, for the clarification.) Just a heads up, despite the pretty color picture on the news article – GUM is where Ikkitousen runs. Just so you know what to expect. ^_^
Yurikuma Arashi launched this week. I haven’t had a chance to see it yet, but please share your spoiler-free opinions in the comments!
ANN has the scoop on the second Psycho-Pass movie trailer.
While Hollywood is busy white-washing Ghost in the Shell by giving Scarlet Johansson the lead, Studio IG is releasing a new animated GitS movie in summer 2015. Check out the trailer and sigh with relief.
ANN also has the second Ikkitousen: Extravaganza Epoch trailer for us.
Out in the real world, Vietnam has abolished their same-sex marriage ban, becoming the first Asian country to allow same-sex marriages!
Marcy Cook has an article on the The Mary Sue with 10 Rules for Making a Transgender Superhero. (Of which we need more, so get to it!)
In a transparent, but welcome, effort to compete with Marvel’s wonderful Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan, DC is launching a new Power Girl, sans boob window or Aryan looks. Tanya Spears looks awesome as a young WoC superheroine, let’s keep our fingers crossed that they give her the writing team she – and her readers – deserve.
The LGBTQ Rights Index page Equaldex has launched a new page tracking LGBTQ Kickstarters. If you’re looking for a good cause, or want to support a LGBTQ artist but don’t know where to start – check it out!
Know some cool Yuri News you want people to know about? Become a Yuri Network Correspondent by sending me any Yuri-related news you find. Emails go to anilesbocon01 at hotmail dot com. Not to the comments here, please, or they might be forgotten or missed. There’s a reason for this madness. This way I know you are a real human, not Anonymous (which I do not encourage – stand by your words with your name!) and I can send you a YNN correspondent’s badge.
Thanks to all of you – you make this a great Yuri Network!
