The January issue of Comic Yuri Hime ( コミック百合姫 2016年 01 月号) is hitting shelves in mid December.
From Kasuga Sunao, December sees Sumedo Jigoku no Inferno ( 住めど地獄のインフェルノ) hitting shelves.
YNN friend and on-the-spot reporter for Crunchyroll News, Komatsu-san, tells us that the 13th volume of Yotsuba&! (よつばと!) is out in Japan, almost three years after Volume 12, and comes with the news that there are approximately 13 million copies of the series in print, including the translated copies. That’s pretty amazing.
Crunchyroll reports that Nickelodeon is streaming the entirety of Legend of Korra this weekend. Go, watch!!
ANN reports on a line of clothes inspired by Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Please excuse me while I remain fascinated by the continued squeezing of this rock for blood. It seems practically never-ending. But then, the game Puzzle and Dragons* just did an Evangelion collaboration. (The Shinji/Eva 01 Tamadra said “I won’t run away!” which made me laugh.) Some series are just never going to be allowed to die, they are way too lucrative. ^_^
From Crunchyroll once again, we get a report on Yuru Yuri’s creator namori-sensei drawings to celebrate the Blu-ray release of Yuyushiki.
Komatsu-san has two more reports of interest this week: the original character designer for Omajo Doremi has drawn a series’ picture book.
AND the first commercial footage for the upcoming Princess Knight stage musical, which honestly, is looking damned cool. The promotional poster is awesome. ^_^
Smithsonian Magazine has an article on Françoise Mouly, a former editor at New Yorker magazine who started Toon Books, a company bringing out educational comics specifically for encouraging kids to read. (Yes, this hardly seems world shaking to us, but if it takes another zOMG! article to push comics, then fine.)
