Yuri Network News – (百合ネットワークニュース) – September 23, 2017

September 23rd, 2017

Yuri Manga

Seven Seas has licensed a kind-of-Yuri manga-ish title, Hungry For You: Endo Yasuko Stalks the Night by Flowerchild. It’s a Young King title, so I feel not particular hopeful that it’ll be good, but I’ve been wrong before. ^_^

Kusanagi-sensei ha Tamesareteiru. (草薙先生は試されている。) is a Yuri 4-koma gag comic that follows a teacher, whose school love’s daughter falls in love with her when she’s in Kusanagi’s class. You can read at least some of it online (in Japanese) for free.

Comic Natalie has the news of a Onee-loli Yuri anthology with familiar names like Namori, Itou Hachi and Takemiya Jin called Parfait. (パルフェ おねロリ百合アンソロジー)

Yuri Anime

Crunchyroll has added the first of Bee Train’s “girls with guns on the run” anime trilogy, Noir and circus-themed Kaleido Star to their catalog.

Card Captor Sakura – Clear Card Arc will be premiering on Japanese TV in January, Crunchyroll News reports. Check out the promotional video.

CR News also has a report on some speculation about a Gai-Rei-Zero animation in celebration of the anime’s 10th anniversary.



Tomorrow in Tokyo, Japan will be 2OL, an event for Yuri starring adult characters. Keep an eye on the Twitter hashtag #2OL for related posts.

I’m doing another lecture up at Harvard on October 26. Not sure if this will be open to the public or not. Check back for details.

I expect to be attending Anime NYC as press. This is this event’s first year and I’m very hopeful it will be successful. It’s a general “anime’ event, so I don’t expect anything of Yuri interest. November 17-19, 2017, Javits Convention Center.

And Comitia is coming up on November 23 at Big Site in Tokyo. I am very much hoping to be there.


Live-Action News

YNN Correspondent Brendan B wants you to know that “Apparently Fun Home is getting a Japanese production, with former Takarazuka star Jun Sena playing adult Allison. That’s some casting!” That will be amazing, yes. ^_^

Ciara Pitts wrote up a list of New And Upcoming Lesbian Movies Out In 2017 And Beyond which, sadly, left out the one movie I’m looking forward to the most – Signature Move, which will be coming to Amazon Video in 2018.

Takarazuka is gearing up to do Moto Hagio’s Clan of Poe and the first look at the lead is absolutely grin-making.

Check out the digest video of the the final Sailor Moon Musical ~Le Mouvement Final~.

Saki – Achiga Hen will be getting a live action drama and movie. About girls playing mah jong. Riveting stuff, eh? ^_^

The live-action Futari Monologue is not Yuri, but definitely looks interesting. It’s streaming on Youtube according to ANN.


Other News

The Center for LGBTQ studies of NYU have open Fellowships you can apply for. If you are creating work with LGBTQ themes or doing research on those works, take a look!

Yesterday on Twitter, Tagame Gengoroh-sensei, creator of My Brother’s Husband, tweeted that he’s done a second jacket cover for the BD/DVD edition of Oscar-winner movie Moonlight, for the Japanese release. Check out his tweet for the image!

    Is there any reason for me to not be disturbed and dissapointed that Takemiya Jin is participating in an anthology focused on underaged girls? (If I’m just misinterpreting the cover, please tell me that I’m wrong, because I would very much like to be).

    • You are well within your rights to feel however you’d like. I am personally disappointed with Kodama Naoko for NTR, for instance. You are not required to purchase anything…I probably will not buy that anthology myself. There are plenty of things I report here on Okazu that I find unappealing. But I try to remember that my taste isn’t universal and I tell people about things they may or may not want to know about.

      Here on Okazu and Yuricon we run a couple of basic guidelines that we remind each other of often:

      1) Just because you don’t like it, doesn’t mean it’s bad.
      2) Just because you like it, doesn’t mean it’s good.
      3) Just because it’s bad, doesn’t mean you can’t like it.
      4) Just because it’s good, doesn’t mean you have to like it.
      and most importantly
      5) You don’t have to read anything you don’t want to.

      Feel free to be disappointed. But if she wanted to draw for that collection, then she has equal right to do that.
