Revolutionary Girl Utena News
As Shoujo Kakumei Utena hit’s its 20th anniversary, (about which I have written a retrospective), a new 2-volume reprint is hitting shelves from Shogagkuan in Japanese (You can read a preview here and see the covers here) and of course we have gorgeous Viz deluxe 2-volume set in English.) Figma is also weighting in with their Utena figurine.
YNN Correspondent Laura C. says that Jpop announced an Italian edition of Shimanami Tasogare! She’s not sure if they’ll actually carry through, though, so fingers crossed.
The Maiden Voyage is a lesbian-lead pirate story picture book for kids that sounds like it ought to be on all our holiday wish-lists. ^_^
And while you’re adding that, make sure you include Elizabeth Beier’s The Big Book of Bisexual Trial and Errors, which I have sitting here and cannot *wait* to read! Here’s a review on Comicsverse, in case my enthusiasm isn’t enough to convince you to run out and get it.
Crunchyroll News has a report on Writer x Writer, the new manga series by Fukami Makoto, running in Mangatime Kirara Forward magazine. I wouldn’t normally say that cover art is indicative of Yuri, but Fukami is and combined with the fact that it’s a Mangatime Kirara magazine story, I’d give it a 75% chance of being or having Yuri.
According to Komatsu-san on Crunchyroll, Lantis’ official YouTube channel has posted a four-minute full music video of the OP theme for the ongoing TV anime adaptation of Sakuya Amano’s Yuri manga Konohana Kitan.
Laura C also noted that Lucca Comics, the biggest comic convention in Italy and Star Comics said there is no date for Sailor Moon Eternal Version because Takeuchi-sensei wants it to be the most faithful possible to the original This echoes some comments I’ve heard from Viz, as well. So as 25 years approaches for Sailor Moon, it’s obvious that Takeuchi-sensei’s got firm hold of the reigns of her masterwork. That makes me happy. Laura also says that Dynit announced the Kill La Kill anime. Great news out of Italy.
