Very exciting news out of Brazil! YNN Correspondent Pâmela P. wants everyone to know that Newpop publisher has announced that Philosophia by Amano Shuninta and Sunset Orange Lips by Rokuroichi will be released in Brazil (link in Portugese). She says, “I am very happy because its the first time Yuri-centred manga will come to Brazil” and I have to say, I’m thrilled, as well! How exciting for Portugese-reading Yuri fans!
Mildred Louis’s delightful magical girl warrior webcomic Agents of the Realm has achieved a first print volume! If you’re not reading it, you definitely should take a look. Manga-influenced, but not a ripoff at all and a full roster of diverse characters.
Kurata Uso’s online Yuri collection Linkage (リンケージ 完全版) is getting the Perfect Volume treatment from Ichijinsha.

Teen Vogue has been a leading voice in the Resistance (and you can support them for an unprecedented $5 subscription) and among their voices is the brilliant Lauren Duca. Today I want to share her message to her internet trolls. It’s substantially the same position I have taken for the 15 years I’ve been writing here. Duca’s article is worth reading if you’re a woman with an opinion online or know one. ^_^
YNN Correspondent Jenna M. suggests we all take a look at the Indivisible Guide to help us resist, as well. I’ve had this downloaded for some time and it’s excellent, if depressing that we need it.
Kara Dennison at Crunchyroll News has the scoop on the new Rose of Versailles Valentine’s Day collaboration at Takashimaya’s Shinjuku store.
I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this site before, but Manifesto on Moral Mansex is a NSFW Tumblr on BL manga that makes me laugh (along with Terrible Real Estate Agent Photos and McMansion Hell) and I wanted to share it with you. We could all use a laugh. Enjoy!
