Maid Machinegun: Light Novel Review

I’m kind of disappointed that this novel didn’t make some a pun with the word “maid.” How about something like “Maid in Akihabara?” Oh, wait, that’s an actual TV show…

Celebrate! Seven Seas Announces More Yuri! (Manga and Light Novel)

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!

My Shakugan no Shanathon trilogy ends with my review of the Light Novel. Actually, I think it should’ve started with the novel, since it was the source material for the manga and the anime… Oh well.
