Top story this week comes from Comic Natalie who announces that, with the January 2017 issue (on sale in November,) Comic Yuri Hime is moving to a monthly format. This is a first for a Yuri manga magazine. Congrats to the folks at Ichijinsha and gambatte to all the manga artists.
Huge news from Denise Schroeder, creator of Yuri Manga Before You Go for Sparkler Monthly. She has announced that, if the Year 4 Sparkler Monthly Kickstarter reaches full funding she’ll be creating a third story in her Yuri series, which will take this to a full graphic novel size.
I’ve repeatedly sung the praises of Sparkler Monthly and this news gives me chance to do two things I like doing – promote good manga and promote a worthy, diverse Kickstarter. The folks working on Sparkler totally get their audience’s interest in Josei, BL and Yuri manga, Light Novels, and Voice Dramas and provide a wide variety of styles and story. If you’d like to see more and better of all of this, please consider throwing some money at them!
