Comic Yuri Hime: Yuri Publication goes from Quarterly to Bi-Monthly

Lions, tigers, and yuri... oh my!


Its as the title says. The five year old Yuri publication has gone from quarterly to bi-monthly. Granted, its not like many of us can pick up a copy of Comic Yuri Hime on the newstand, but its nice to know that the explosion of censorship isn't keeping all of the "fringe" elements back. Not that Comic Yuri Hime is particularly bad or anything,  but... well, when your magazine publishes romance stories between women (especially since many include youths in sexual ways) you open yourself up for the same scrutiny the hentai industry is facing.

Their common MO is one-shots. Being quarterly, serialized works are less common, though are included in their ranks, and a good number of published volumes have come out of collected works from this magazine. Off hand, I remember reading the series, Hanjuku Joshi, and finding the art/story quite enjoyable. 
 
Either way, good for them! Reading this inspires me to check and see how many other works from the magazine have gotten translated. Though, for fun I'll note that like Yaoi (Male x Male, read most commonly by women,) Comic Yuri Hime's readership is 70% female.

I wish we`d had a yuri magazine that isn`t 100% porn but romance i would pick it up right away.

@Kelleth:  as far as I can tell, its 100% romance, with like, appropriate, but occasional splash ins of sexuality. Like, Hanjuku Joshi wasn't an every issue sexual scene, and even then it might be just them walking in on someone else, and then immediately running away (to go home and like, blush or something, or question their feelings)

Whoa.... uhhh.... ah-hem, where might one ummm... acquire an issue of said magazine?
 
This may or may not be relevant to my interests.

This is pretty good news in my opinion. It's nice to see the Yuri market expanding even if by a little.

@John_Martone:  Not completely what i meant, i meant that we don`t have anything like these in the west that isn`t porn.
That said i`m going to check Hanjuku Joshi out now lol thank you for the recommendation

i've actually read scanalated versions of the comic on that cover!  it's called Strawberry Shake Sweet, and it's incredibly funny and adorable.  definitely not porny, just lots of comic misunderstandings, out of control crushes, will-they-or-won't they, and madcap hilarity.  i wish there were light and silly queer comics like that in the US.

I know that I need to says something smart but Mmm, Yuri.

Hummm, all right. I can't say I don't like Yuri.
