Yuri Manga and Anime Fanlisting

Back in September, I wrote a piece about upcoming Yuri manga in the USA. Well, since then, more titles have been added and I wanted to do an update. Some of these items are on the Yuricon Store, some are not yet, so I also thought it would be a good time to explain how […]

Nakatani Nio’s blockbuster manga has debuted in English as Bloom Into You, Volume 1 from Seven Seas. When I originally reviewed Volume 1 of Yagate Kimi ni Naru, I said that it was “a sweet little Yuri romance that I both enjoyed a lot and also have several real problems with.” My opinion has not […]

Time is a funny thing. I first reviewed Gakuen Polizi, Volume 2 when it came out in Japanese. And, since then, I’ve found myself increasingly dissatisfied with the narrative. So much so, that I reviewed Gakuen Polizi, Volume 1 in English in 2014(!) and have been stalling on Volume 2 since.  Today, at last, I’m […]

Today’s review was brought to you by the kindness of Okazu Superhero Louis P, and I have to really commend him for his patience and perseverance, finding all three volumes of this obscure little series. Many thanks Louis! And when I say “obscure” I mean that it was published by CMX, the manga imprint run […]

In Volume 2 of Kannazuki no Miko we come face to face with a centuries old prophecy meeting self-inflicted homophobia of a young woman. Through no effort of the creative team, we recognize that should Chikane have had a single person to speak with who was gay, very little of this story would have happened. […]

I know you know that I don’t really game all that much, but even living under a gaming rock as I do, I know Street Fighter. I remember seeing the first versions of this in arcades in my youth and I’ve seen, although never played, any number of the iterations since. ^_^ Well, when Okazu […]

As a Valentine’s Day present, Seven Seas announced that they have licensed Nakatani Nio’s Yagate Kimi ni Naru, Bloom Into You. Seven Seas is planning to release the series as single volumes (as opposed to omnibus volumes), the first of which will be available in January 2017. Here is the Okazu review of Volume 1, […]

Samantha is a relatively normal girl who one day follows a stray cat into an abandoned building. What happens to Sam is not normal at all, as she is thrown through a rift in time to the late Cretaceous Age, where she meets Caroline, a girl who claims to be a time-traveler. The tagline for […]

Whether thy begin “Once upon a time..” or “Mukashi, mukashi…”, fairy tales all begin some time a log time ago, quite often in places without real names. The kingdoms are feudal, evil mostly comes in the form of magic and giant beasts that must be defeated and slayed. And, as so many people have commented […]

There’s almost no point in reviewing Akuma no Riddle (悪魔のリドル) as a manga series, since clearly the manga was contracted out by Kadokawa to illustrate the anime and not much more. This is frustrating, as I quite like Kouga Yun and would have liked a chance to see her flex her writing skills a bit. Instead, […]
