A quick data dump today. I’m out partaking of some local history before the entire National Park Service ends up being closed, now that they are part of the resistance. (Go check out their page right now as they celebrate Black history month.)
You are invited to join me and publisher Anne Ishii at the Rainbow Manga talk at Hunter College, NYC on March 10th. Please RSVP at the link above.
The 2017 Yuriten event in honor of Canno’s Anoko ni Kiss to Shirayuri wo series will be held March 18-26 at Ikebukuro’s Marui building and from there, moving to Osaka, Comic Natalie reports. Manga artists Amagure Kido and Hirao Auri will be participating.
Crunchyroll has added older anime Gakuen Alice, which while not a “Yuri” anime has a lovely deep friendship and (spoilers) a dance between the two female best friends amidst some very fucked up emotional and physical abuse of little kids in a fantasy school series. It’s both a good and terrible series at once.
ANN has the news about a new 50th anniversary Rose of Versailles Anime Artbook.
We have Lumberjanes, Volume 2 up on the Yuricon Store. More camping adventures with lake monsters and ancient gods!
I so very strongly suggest reading Ijeoma Oluo‘s When A Woman Deletes A Man’s Comment Online. Oluo is not exaggerating even slightly. I’ve had guys follow me across multiple platforms to be able to keep ragging at me, as well.
Grant Jones takes a look at a classic anime in Neon Never Fades: Thirty Years of Bubblegum Crisis. I have a fond place in my heart for BGC, as it was (pursuant to the above article) the first time a guy followed me across multiple platforms to be able to keep ragging at me, because Priss won in our very first popularity poll on the Yuricon Mailing List. This guy was really annoyed that people thought Priss was gay and blamed me. ^_^ Poor guy.
This sounds interesting: Emil Ferris’ My Favorite Thing is Monsters graphic novel has been reviewed by the New Yorker in A Graphic Novel Novel About a Young Girl, a Murder, and the Allure of Monsters.
