      In the first volume of Yozakura Quartet that has been released in
      English by Del Rey there are some character profiles between chapters.
      The profile for Kotoha Isone has amongst its random assortment of
      information (including favourite comediennes and Uchi-P members) the
      line "likes girls".

      Now this could very well turn out to mean nothing, never be mentioned
      or mean likes girls in the same why that Sakura Tsubaki from Kare Keno
      likes girls (in an aesthetic way). I'm sure later volumes will clear
      this up, but if anyone has been reading this as it comes out I would
      greatly appreciate it if you could illuminate this.

      That aside, the series itself is good but basic fun. Think Burst Angel
      but with Japanese magic and demons replacing the mechs and guns.
      Kotoha Isone is part of a four (plus one) member team of the usual
      three girls one guy verity. But the similarity stops there, for one
      the guy is actually attractive and not a jerk. The tsundere is not a
      tsundere but just all tsun, and is also mayor of the town they are
      protecting. The nekno-mimi's are not made to look like ears but more
      like gelled hair. And The glasses/schoolgirl service character has
      very little scenes with glasses/uniform service but mostly old German
      WW2 weaponry service. Also there is another member who does not seem
      to be often counted, a sexy manacled man with glasses who looks after
      the tsun character.

      Really the reason to read this series is that it was drawn and written
      by Suzuhito Yasuda whose art is beautiful and clean. You may remember
      Yasuda from the Robot anthology where Yasuda does stories with colour
      as their main theme. So even if it terns out not to have a yuri
      character you should still look into it if you like Yasuda's other
      work. It is very `the usual aspects' though you have to be able to
      ignore the bits you don't like. (but surely any good manga fan already
      does that)
