YNN_MariK Yuri Anime

Last week I took a moment to wax poetic about my favorite lesbian couple in anime, Haruka and Michiru on Quora. This week you can learn to love them too, as Sailor Moon S is now available streaming on Viz’s Neon Alley, subbed – the dub is slowly catching up. I’m looking forward to the S dub for the first time in ever.  ^_^

Yuri Manga

New on the Yuricon Store this week!

One of the new re-prints from Ichijinsha, Rokuroichi’s Kuchibiru ni Saketa Orange Special Edition (くちびるに透けたオレンジ 新装版). They are also putting together a special edition reprint of Saburouta’s Citrus 1 Special Edition (Citrus 1 新装版).

Kuzushiro’s Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san gets a spinoff volume, 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 we now have the much-anticipated English translation of sci-fi lesbian Bande dessinée,  The Infinite Loop. We definitely need more Yuri sci-fi and I’m very much looking forward to reading this story.

Yuri.pl on Facebook reports that the fifth and final volume of the Polish edition Morinaga Milk’s GIRL FRIENDS is hitting shelves today!

Comics Alliance had me screaming in joy with the news that Lumberjanes To The Max hardcover volume is coming in November! Aaaaaaahhhhh!

Yuri Live Action

Did you enjoy the creepy/funny/fanservice-y Innocent Lilies? Well, Denpa-gumi is back with Innocent Lilies 2 – White Witch Academy streaming on Viki.com. Expect slightly higher budget for costumes, zero extra budget for plot or scripting. ^_^
