- Apr 25, 2008Hi! I signed up a day or two ago. I've never been on yahoo groups
before, and when I was making my account I decided to name myself
after my favorite animal, the slow loris. It spends a lot of its time
quietly lurking, and I can't say I'm much different. It's also
venomous (a primate! venomous!), but I didn't know that until later.
First off I'd like to thank Erica (and everybody else that
reviews/translates/etc. around here). It's good when people share and
help each other out. I try to do the same with my own work, and it's
cool that it's so easy to do these days.
I can't really say when I became interested in yuri specifically
rather than just having bumped into a lot of it, starting with Utena,
which is one of my favorite shows, then on to the Marimite anime to
various Lililicious critters to the Marimite novels as they pop up on
Okazu and elsewhere, but it's certainly a greater part of what I've
been into lately.
I think the one I'm enjoying the most right now is Aoi Hana/Sweet Blue
Flowers. It's very refreshing and it's more or less mellow. Even if
there are triangles and that sort of thing, which I don't generally
like, even that aspect of it hasn't developed in that sort of cliched
episodic fashion that's quite common. I recently received the three
volumes, which I can't read, from Japan. I've been working through
number 3 very slowly and picking up kanji on the way. It's fun to try
to guess what happened from the pictures, anyway, he he he.
