Double-fisted entry in Okazu's "History of Yuri" series! "Otome no Minato"
- Do you ever wonder were all that "onee-sama"-ing comes from? Or why Catholics schools are all the rage in Yuri? On Okazu, we've been tracing those tropes and conventions back in time in our "History of Yuri" posts (you can find all of them here: http://okazu.yuricon.com/category/history-of-yuri/.)Today we've added two posts, both about the 1938 'S' novel "Otome no Minato".In Part 1, I introduce the novel and give you a short synopsis: http://okazu.yuricon.com/2014/03/02/proto-yuri-novel-otome-no-minato-%e4%b9%99%e5%a5%b3%e3%81%ae%e6%b8%af-part-1-introduction-and-synopsis/In Part 2, I, Katherine Hanson and Erin Subramanian discuss the novel and many of the later implications of the tropes it uses: http://okazu.yuricon.com/2014/03/02/proto-yuri-novel-otome-no-minato-%e4%b9%99%e5%a5%b3%e3%81%ae%e6%b8%af-part-2-group-discussion/I hope you'll find these posts both enjoyable and entertaining!
