Live Action News
Wahooooooo! ANN reports that Sentai Filmworks has licensed the live-action Arch Angels, a crazy movie based on a cute shoujo comic Warau Daitenshi Mikaeru. I heaped praise upon this movie back in 2008 and have been praying daily for someone to license it. There’s a little akogare/crushiness, nothing more Yuri however, the movie stars Ueno Juri and has a nun with an eyepatch who has eyeball grenades, so I think that makes up for any perceived flaws. ^_^
Yuriten is a collaboration event to celebrate Yuri series by a bunch of Yuri artists (Including Kanno, Amagure Kido and Takasaki Hiromi) in Osaka in February and Ikebukuro in March, and as I will be in Ikebukuro in May don’t think I’m not gnashing my teeth in frustration at missing this. Grrrr.
Nari x Yuki Living (なり×ゆきリビング なり×ゆきリビング ) is a seeries that follows two coworkers who end up living together in an odd-couple-y fashion. The plot doesn’t sound all that Yuri, but the series is listed under the BL Comics on Amazon (which is where the Yuri is indexed. They really need a new category header.)
And we have Morinaga Milk’s new volume Hana to Hina ha Houkago (ハナとヒナは放課後) on the Yuricon Store, as well. ^_^
Lilies Anthology is an Tumblr project looking to publish Yuri comics. They are recruiting artists (unpaid) and have a few months of submissions in their archives and first issue is imminent according to a recent update.
Comic Natalie reports that Yuri Danshi is being released in a new 5-volume set and a in the May issue of Comic Yuri Hime Kurat Uso will have an extra “doujinshi” story, Ore no Yome Nanka Inee~” that I have zero hope for, but will refrain from further comment until I have seen it.
Also on Comic Natalie Murcielago‘s Yoshimura Kana, Baccano’s and Durarara‘s Narita Ryougo have a 4-part conversation with Fukami Shin about, presumably writing gonzo crime stories. ^_^
Komatsu-san has the scoop that former Takarisenne Reon Yuzuki is starring in a Bio Hazard/ Resident Evil stage musical on Crunchyroll news. Now take a moment to re-read that and think about the idea of a musical Resident Evil adaptation. Best of times…worst of times.
