Yuri Panel at MangaNEXT

Erica Friedman (@yuricon) and Sean Gaffney (@toukochan) hosts this panel on a genre of manga that does not get as much props as it deserves. Among the numerous titles out there. What is good? What are ones to perhaps avoid. This is not a panel that would suggest for attendees where there is just lesbian sex. Erica just happened to be cleaning house, so she was giving away Japanese goods to audience members.

Tweeting and generally wi-fi was horrible at Panel 2, but yes these three anime titles are suggested for yuri fans to view. These titles may not outright be yuri, but definitely for yuri-minded fans. Black Rock Shooter and Puella Magi Madoka Magica are available for free online via Nico Nico Douga and Crunchy Roll. Revolutionary Girl Utena as a clarification is available as a DVD set from RightStuf.com.

Since Jmanga.com began last year, they have been releasing digitally titles that often may or may not get released in print.  Girlfriends, being the only exception is also available in print from Seven SeasLove My Life, and Poor Poor Lips are yuri electronic released titles. Erica gives much props to Jmanga.com on bringing over Yuri titles to be read in English.

  1. Cool, thanks for reporting! I would have attended this one if I lived in the East Coast. I didn’t know Puella Madoka was considered as a covert yuri title. Wow, it’s great that Madoka is on CR now! I haven’t checked Black Rock Shooter yet. I heard it is about Black Miku, so to speak. Well, I may check out if there is a yuri element in it.

    1. You definitely would have enjoyed attending this convention. Checking out Madoka on CR.. and it is okay for the first episode. Have yet to check out BRS.. hmm I didn’t mention it.. but Marie-sama ga Miteru was in the aftermath mentioned as a yuri anime suggestion.

  2. I love reading “Girlfriends”! I have all but one volume (I’ll buy it when it’s translated into Mandarin). Thanks for reporting!

    1. Oh nice.. I am reading Girlfriends on jmanga.. sooo quite lucky to be able to read Manga in Chinese. Mandarin is only the vocal speech.. are you talking about simplified kanji or traditional kanji?
