new Lililicious releases - Water one-shots
- Tonight's releases are from a collection of one-shots by Nananan Kiriko,
Water. Nananan has also done a longer yuri work, Blue, which is
available in English from Fanfare/Ponent Mon (it's also available in
Spanish from Ponent Mon, and in French from Casterman; the version
listed at amazon.com is the Spanish one). Blue has been reviewed at
Okazu, if you want more info on it:
(linking directly to the entry, since search doesn't always work correctly).
The first yuri story from Water, "color color," is about two characters
who think they probably shouldn't be together but are anyway. The title
relates to the concept of "boy colors" and "girl colors," which is also
a focus of the story.
In the other, "kisses," a friend comes to stay with the main character,
not knowing she's in love with her.
As always, the releases can be downloaded in the channel on irc
(#lililicious on irc.rizon.net) or at the webpage

"Are we doing the wrong thing? We're doing the wrong thing, aren't
Hey, if they keep downing themselves because doing the "wrong thing"
is adding a taboo thrill to the relationship, I say have a blast.
BUT, if what I think in my head is true (Oh how could it not?),
they're just beating themselves with the "Unnatural" stick, to which I
say STFU and enjoy the goddamn date.
Yuri books are all well and good, but it's a kick in the war-womb to
have your enjoyment ruined by disagreeable content. Kinda like
getting to the end of a damn funny Ichigo Mashimaro book, then seeing
the "A Manga full of girls for boys" disclaimer at the end. Grrrrr...
