Yuri Manga

Kuzushiro’s girl-falls-for-sister-in-law series Ani no Yome to Kurashiteimasu (兄の嫁と暮らしています。) is going to Volume 3 which will hit shelves at the end of July. Toribaku-sempai Nani Kakeru? (鳥獏先輩なに賭ける?) by Kuzushiro hits shelves in late July.

Nishi Akane’s girl-gamer story Itsuka Minoreba (いつかみのれば) Volume 1 has been out since May, but I missed putting that here. My apologies. tMnR’s version of the girl-falls-for-sister-in-law story,  Tatoe to dokanu keda toshitemo (たとえとどかぬ糸だとしても) is also available.

Momono Moto’s Yuunagi Mabrette Perfect Volume (夕凪マーブレット完全版)  collects a number of this Yuri artist’s doujinshi.

I don’t actually know what this is about (hah! as if it’s about anything) but Comic Natalie reports that Fujyoko to Yuriko (ふじょ子とユリ子) is a new love series running in Mangatime Kirara Karat magazine.

Also from Comic Natalie, Dengeki Daioh will be running a new (by which I mean ultra-derivative) Yuri manga,  Ryuu no Shoujo ha Koi wo suru (籠の少女は恋をする). 

Last one from Comic Natalie, a bunch of girl pop idols sat down to talk about Hirao Auri’s pop idol x otaku Yuri love story, Oshi ga Budokan Ittekuretara Shinu推しが武道館いってくれたら死ぬ.  (Volume 1 and Volume 2 have been reviewed here on Okazu, Volume 3 is out now.) What a fun idea!


Yuri-ish News

None of this is specifically Yuri, but these series always have a home here on Okazu. 

Kodansha has piled on a few exciting announcements regarding Card Captor Sakura. According to Crunchyroll News, the new Clear Card arc will, be getting a digital release on Comixology. In addition, the print volume will be available in November 2017.

Kodansha also announced the Sailor Moon Eternal Edition, an English-language translation of the 20th anniversary 10-volume set of the Sailor Moon manga with the new cover art with metallic ink and “holographic” images, French flaps (which I am of two minds on, as they reproduce bookcover flaps but for, like, no actual reason) and a larger trim. These are absolutely gorgeous. I have actually stored all the other versions of the Japanese manga and have only these out on my shelves, they are so pretty.

Nozomi/RightStuf has officially announced a 20th anniversary Collector’s Blu-Ray edition of the Revolutionary Girl Utena anime, which will hit shelves in December 2017.

ANN Reports that Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection will be getting theater screenings in the United States.

LGBTQ Events

Yurithon is coming! I will be a Special Guest and will be paneling myself dry. Do stop by August 4-6 in Montreal, Canada and hang out with me in my many panels. (So many panels….)

Flamecon has put together a special exhibitor Twitter list. More than 175 exhibitors’ Twitter accounts, so you can see just how silly/smart/fascinating/enraging all those folks are. ^_^ 


Other News

Kotaku has a relatively insightful (if, strikingly obvious to some folks,) discussion of the problems scanlators face when they decide that the work they do is work and deserves to be paid, in Manga Pirates Are Having Trouble Going Legit. If you think about it, it’s a bit like a gang who, after trashing your store repeatedly, turns around and asks you to hire them legitimately as security. No one is going to trust people who destroyed their business.
