Yuri Network News – (百合ネットワークニュース) – November 11, 2017

November 18th, 2017

Short news report today, as I’m on the floor of Anime NYC.

LGBTQ Manga

Seven Seas has two big license announcements so far this week. As we previously covered, Kabi Nagata’s sequel comic My Solo Exchange Diary  continues her struggles with life and, I’m pleased to report that they have also licensed Riyoko Ijkeda’s LGBTQ comic Claudine!, which I have many times noted can be validly read as either a story of a butch lesbian or a trans man. I very much look forward to seeing this in English!

Live-Action News

Comic Natalie has a report of a new Revolutionary Girl Utena Musical making its way on stage in March 2018.  As  one of the few who remembers the musical from the early 2000s, this news made me cringe and laugh. Hopefully this one is not nearly as excruciating. ^_^ And, in one of those maddening mis-timings that plague me, There is a Revolutionary Girl Utena exhibit at Tobu in Ikebukuro that will close the day before I arrive. Yes, I’m vexed. (-_-);

Prada is honoring the work of female comics creators and illustrators with a new fashion line.

    A new Utena stage show is interesting! I wonder if they’re gonna do Takarazuka-style casting like in the recent Sailor Moon musicals.
