And while we’re talking Yuricon, the Shop Update is moving forward apace. Beta testing will begin  in mere days.  And then I will spend my days and nights adding manga until my hands seize up. You can be sure, from now on, every time I report on new manga, I’m going to be thinking “D’oh! Gotta get that in the Shop.” ^_^

Yuri Manga (D’oh!)

Amano Shuninta’s Ayame 14 (あやめ 14) first volume hit shelves this month, along with Ohsawa Yayoi’s Spice Girls (スパイスガールズ), both from Yuri Hime Comics

Hitting shelves next week, also from Yuri Hime Comics, is The 13th volume of Yuri Yuri (ゆるゆり). Later this month, we’ll see Takemiya Jin’s Chou Chou Nan Nan (喋喋喃喃).

From Ryuu Comics we’ll be seeing  Manfuku Yuri (満腹百合) which appears to be about a female couple and food. This sounds perfect to me! I can’t wait to read it. ^_^

From Hirari Comics, we can look forward to Engekibu no Majou to Kishi (演劇部の魔女と騎士)  Seijun Shoujo Paradigm (聖純少女パラダイム) and Watashi no Iyana Tomodachi (私の嫌いなおともだち). How exciting that Hirari is doing what they said they do and releasing the volumes of the stories we were enjoying so much!

Sailor Moon

Here are utterly useless Outer-Senshi-themed Sailor Moon things that you need to buy. I know you do, because I do, too. ^_^

While we’re doing some Sailor Moon wallowing, via YNN Correspondent Elizabeth F, here is ANN’s report on the third Sailor Moon Musical.

Other News

Via YNN Correspondent Serge, here is an overview of an interview with Ikuhara Kunihiko and Morishima Akiko on Yuri Kuma Arashi. Worth reading.

In 2011, a pilot for a Wonder Woman TV series was filmed. There was a lot of talk about it, and discussion of lead Adrienne Palicki’s costume. We saw a really cool teaser…and then DC and NBC, remembered girls had cooties and the project died. Well the entire pilot is available to watch online. Go watch.

And from YNN Correspondent JRBrown, here is Bara manga artist Tagame Gengoroh on his newest manga series. While bara (which is by gay men for gay men and usually portrays large, beefy and/or hairy men) is not usually within our playground, this series is addressing real issues of gay families. Ototo no Otto, My Young Brother’s Husband, is the story of a Japanese man who moved to Canada and married another man there, bringing his husband back to Japan to meet his twin brother.  This sounds extremely interesting to me. Thanks JRB!
