From YNN Senior Correspondent Grisznak, we have more excellent news -Polish publisher Dango have announced that they will release Kimi Koi Limit by Momono Moto in November. I hope the Polish Yuri fans are taking advantage of all these great releases! And I hope you get the sequel, Rainy Song, as well.

Thai Yuri Manga Lily Love (which I reviewed in 2015) is now available in English in print! Preorders are being taken now! and the new edition will include a few extras beyond the Thai edition.

Yuri Essays

We’re going to wrap up today’s report with some personal good news. I have had my first ever article for an academic journal approved for publication. Yayyyyy!

“On Defining Yuri” is slated for inclusion in Transformative Works and Cultures, No. 24, “Queer Female Fandom,” guest edited by Julie Levin Russo and Eve Ng, which will appear on June 15, 2017. Finally! a definitive look at why there can never be a definitive look at Yuri. ^_^ When it’s published, I’ll be sure to include a link to it.
