We begin today with an ANN report on a series from Comic Cune (of which I have reviewed an issue or two.) The ever-so -vaguely Yurish Pan de Peace!, with cute girls hugging each other cutely and a bakery setting, is getting an anime.
Crunchyroll has that news that Sentai Filmworks has licensed Bodacious Space Pirates: Abyss of Hyperspace for Blu-ray and DVD. I haven’t seen this yet, and am looking forward to it! Even more awesome, Sentai has licensed the extraordinary Den-Noh Coil. A lot of folks are going to be happy to see that licensed!
We are loading up on a couple of new designs for the Yuricon Store and the first new “I Love Yuri” design is up! Created by Althea Keaton, this adorable rainbow-themed comic panel design is available on t-shirts, phone cases, mugs, journals and more via our Redbubble shop. Check all the color options for shirts and be ready to let the world know you love Yuri at your next anime con or Pride event. ^_^
ANN reports that Hagio Moto’s early BL classic, Poe no Ichizoku, is getting a live-action series on Japanese TV.
Graham Kolbiens and Anne Ishii have launched an awesome Kickstarter called Queer Japan to create a documentary on Japanese lifeLGBTQ . It will feature out manga artist Tagame Gengoroh among other visual artists.
I want to end this with a reminder that Konno Oyuki has a new series about friends whose relationship become something more in college. Friends is a light novel from Shueisha. You *know* you want to read it. ^_^
