Time to get ready for Yuri Hime!
- Just a couple of weeks until Yuri Him, Vol. 8 is out. On the very off
chance that they updated the website, I popped over today :
And found that there's to be a new Drama CD coming out - this one
about the Zaou Taishi and Eiki Eiki series which is being called "Haru
Natsu Aki Fuyu."
(HOW did I manage to not notice that the characters names were all the
seasons...?I must have lost my mind there for a second. Let me refresh
you: Haruha x Akiho and Natsuki x Fuyuka are the main student couples.
There's the adult couple, too Reiko x Asano.)
For those who are interested, here's the run down on the voice
actresses, with a notable yuri role...they've all got loads of
interesting roles, feel free to look them up on ANN for more complete
Haruka - Tamura Yukari (Tomari in Kashimashi)
Fuyuka - Nota Mamiko (Someone in everything)
Akiho - Shintani Ryoko (Aoi from Mai HiMe/Otome)
Natsuki - Kawasumi Ayako (Chikane from Kannazuki no Miko)
So, yet again, a high "Six degrees of yuri" factor in play here.
Clearly, once you've gotten a paycheck playing yuri, you're earmarked.
It's maybe not such a bad niche...
Drama CD and magazine are both available April 18. As soon as
pre-order links are up on Amazon JP, I'll post the, here and on the YC

Join us for the only 100% yuri day of 2007 - Yuricon's 2007 "Yurisai"
- Hello everybody,
Brought home latest issue (nr.5, 2007) of Ribon today, which
presented first installation of "Crash" by Yuka Fujiwara, which is
about Hana Shiraboshi, first year high school student, who helps her
mother with her Idol-producing company. Because Hana has a very
special "ability" (and here is where the very small Yuri factor butts
in); she starts bleeding from her nose when she sees people with an
appearance suitable for becoming an Idol, of either gender.
Seeing her blushing and sprouting blood from her nose when seeing
pictures of pretty girls tickle my Yuri-sense.
Of course, then enter super-good-loking-but-with-a-bad-attitude-boy
and you know what the main pairig will be. It is shoujo after all.
