Yuri-related things from Otakon
- Various random gibberings:
Talked to two fangirls while walking past the line for pre-reg. They
were very excited to see me till they found out I wrote yuri, after
which they totally lost interest. Since I'm so used to Yuricon
people being really happy about f/f, this was a nice refreshing
The panel went well, and I mentioned the amusing FFNet review I'd
read, saying that "Girls can't have sex, so your fic is simply
incorrect." I talked too much, but this is not entirely surprising
to anyone anymore. John also talked too much, so that was OK.
Steel Angel Kurumi is a lot of cute fun, with many ecchi yuri gags.
Saki is an obvious Tomoyo (i.e. not going to get anywhere), but her
raging hormones are very amusing. I also love the Haruka and Michiru
parody following everyone, and one Ep on the 2nd DVD has the funniest
thing I've seen in anime in quite some time (it involves dojinshi).
Flashback, as I mentioned earlier, is a really irritating hentai
series where 3 girls are given the usual ecchi shock therapy, realize
they love each other through the power of sex, and then are
brainwashed more and sold as slaves on the black market. It got me
so annoyed I'm debating writing a fic to fix it, except it's hentai
so I don't know if I care enough. I should probably work on fics
that are actually important first. ^^;; Thank God I didn't pay
money for it, that's all I can say.
I noticed something. All the hentai anime shown at Otakon was yaoi
this year. ALL of it. Not even het anime. I think Yaoi has really
hit a boom.
