Dangerous Women: Tales of Queer Villiany is at just about 2/3 the initial funding goal in our first week! I encourage you all to take advantage of the excellent backer pricing and rewards available to you and help us reach our initial goal quickly. You can also support us by sharing the campaign on your own groups and lists.

Stretch goals will give more money to the writers and we have a really cool stretch goal planned, so please help us out and back this awesome prose anthology of queer women and their quests for power.

Industry News

I came home last night to find this news – Kodansha has acquired Ichijinsha. The publisher of Comic Yuri Hime will now be a wholly-owned subsidiary of one of the three largest publishers in Japan. What that will mean for Comic Yuri Hime is as yet unknown, but consider that negotiations must have been going on for many months and Ichijinsha has planned for Comic Yuri Hime to go monthly in 2017. It may mean something and it may mean nothing for us. We’ll have to wait and see.  I found the article on Comic Natalie, but here is ANN’s writeup in English.

 

Yuri Manga

ANN has the scoop on the newest chapters heading our way of Rose of Versailles, which is moving quickly towards a 45th anniversary. The two new chapters will follow Marie Antoinette.

ANN also tells us that the Akuma no Riddle manga is coming to an end this winter. It is available in English in print from Seven Seas and in digital format on Global Bookwalker.

    So, Hibike!Euphonium 2 is off to a roaring start. The fireworks, the playing of solos for people, Reina’s territoriality at the festival.

    What is the line between yuri and bait? Does canon matter?

    Personally, I find no difference between yuri and bait. If I see yuri, I react to yuri, and the yuri is there. My perception.

    But, yeah, canon matters. We need representation, we need our good stories told.

    I’m sure these questions have been chewed over elsewhere, but I’m a noob, have a little mercy on me….
