Junk: Record of the Last Hero, despite what you may think, is not a Rozen Maiden spinoff starring Suigintou. Though that’d totally be awesome now that I think about it…
So this headline from ANN caught my eye. Seven Seas has acquired licenses for two new yuri manga and two yuri novels:
Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has licensed two yuri school manga titles: Hayate Cross Blade by Shizuru Hayashiya (Onegai Teacher, Strawberry Shake Sweet) and Akatsuki-iro no Senpuku Majo by Mera Hakamada (The Last Uniform). The company also announced two yuri novel titles: Girls Love and Girls Revolution.
I’m not too interested in the novels, but I really do want to read Hayate Cross Blade. I bought it a while back but I later found out that it doesn’t have furigana, which basically made it unreadable for me. So it’ll be cool for me to finally be able to read it.
Incidentally, right now I’m reading The Last Uniform (Saigo no Seifuku) and it’s pretty enjoyable. I mean, there hasn’t been any ***** or ****, but it’s cute.
Basically, Seven Seas is blazing a trail in releasing yuri stuff right now. I read a news article a while back about them licensing yaoi too, which I don’t approve of. But as long as they keep supplying the yuri, I’m in 100% support mode!
