A few weeks ago, I mentioned new free, legal streaming anime site Viewster. They have a really nice variety of Yuri anime. I mentioned series like Aoi Hana/Sweet Blue Flowers and Strawberry Panic! and YNN Correspondent Day wants you to know that all of Maria-sama Ga Miteru/Maria Watches Over Us is there too! There’s a bunch more, as well, including series that aren’t Yuri, per se, but are favorites among our readers, like Aria. Viewster is providing a great service, picking up series that had become hard to find and new titles, as well.
I just had a chance to read and will shortly review The Invisible Lesbian by
Oceanerosemarie and Murielle Magelin, translated from the French by Edward Gauvin and I’m going to have to recommend it. It was a pleasant, slightly ridiculous (in a real-life ridiculous kind of way) story of a woman coming out and getting used to herself. But what really sold me was the comedic timing. I didn’t just laugh…I guffawed. You can get this digitally on Comixology or in French in physical copy.
Buzzfeed takes a look at the paucity of queer superheros.
Ironically when considered in tandem with the above, Comic Book Resources discusses a cover of Marvel’s New Avengers, showing Captain America and Thor kissing as they soar above the city. I know it’s not our usual focus, but hey, it’s a nice picture.

Thanks to all of you – you make this a great Yuri Network!
