A lot of rebooting, reworking and re-releasing is going on in the Yuri manga world right now. With the dissolution of Hirari and Tsubomi magazines, Ichijinsha has picked up a number of older titles for Kindle-only releases. This means that they are not available to buyers based outside Japan, but it’s darn interesting to see them bring so many old series back as digital releases.
Here’s a small selection of older Yuri titles I’m seeing up for JP Kindle release:
Mitsukini Hajime’s Musou Honey (妄想HONEY)
Hakamada Mera’s Yozora no Ouji to Asayake no Hime (夜空の王子と朝焼けの姫)
Yoshitomi Akihito’s Futari to Futari (ふたりとふたり)
Himawari Souya’s Sakura Buntsuu (さくら文通)
Sakamoto Mono’s Pie wo Agemasho, Anata ni Pie wo ne (パイをあげましょ、あなたにパイをね)
Kindaichi Renjurou’s fascinating Josei collection by a male author, Mermaid Line (マーメイドライン)
In addition to loads of Kindle releases, Ichijinsha is releasing new editions of several older titles:
Rokuroichi’s Kuchibiru ni Saketa Orange New Edition (くちびるに透けたオレンジ 新装版)
I love that so much Yuri is available digitally and frustrated as heck that I can’t just buy it that way.
Ichijinsha is continuing to release new Yuri Hime Comics manga, as well:
Nekota’s Tomiko no Kimochi (トミコの気持ち)
An anthology about which I know nothing, called Kimashi (キマシ)
Kuzushiro’s spin-off from Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san, Ryuuzaki-san to Torao-san, Yuri Hime Short Story Collection. (龍崎さんと虎生さん ～百合姫短編集～)
And the September volume of Comic Yuri Hime (コミック百合姫 2015年 09 月号), which will ship mid-July.
The folks over at St. Michael’s School for Girls, are at Anime Expo right now(!) and have a Sono Hanbira short story collection, Shiroyuri Memorial, planned (白百合のメモリアル).
Planning on attending San Diego Comic-Con 2015? Prism Comics and Northwest Press have teamed up to bring you this year’s Gay Agenda. ^_^
