19:57:43 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> Starting
19:58:19 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> Erica Friedman.... yuricon... alc publishing...
19:58:46 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> one of her lackies (name?)
19:59:02 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> today we are going to talk about thigns that if you come back tomorrow, you have a chance of finding them in the dealers room
19:59:26 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> the best place to find yuri is the yuricon shop... the largest collection of books/etc of yuri on the internet
19:59:28 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> yuricon.org
19:59:48 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> the other is okazu
19:59:53 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> which is the name of my blog
20:00:01 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> and ive been reviewing yuri anime and manga for years
20:00:07 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> and those links have answers to most questions
20:00:12 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> just let me give you a quick history of things
20:00:42 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> back in 1923, you will never be able to read this book.. called two virgins in the attic.... tells the story of a catholic schoolgirl who falls in love with her roommate...
20:00:53 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> the point is it set a precedent for yuri and catholic school girls
20:01:03 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> one thing you notice is there is a lot of catholic school girls
20:01:18 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> in 1971... the first yuri manga was published.. about catholic school girls (check year)
20:01:26 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (missed line)
20:01:45 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> bizzarely... 4 years ago... marimite was turned into an anime... a story about catholic school girls doing nothing
20:01:53 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> it's the greatest series ever written and amazingly, it was licensed for america
20:01:59 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> nothing fanservicy..
20:02:40 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (talking about the plot of marmite)
20:03:16 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> strawberry panic...
20:03:22 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> everything that marimite is... strawberry panic makes fun of
20:03:32 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> strawberry panic is a series that makes fun of you.. the yuri fan
20:03:58 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> everything... every character... is making fun of the fan
20:04:18 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> simoun
20:04:46 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> there hasn't been anything after simoun...
20:05:23 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> kashimashi girl meets girl...
20:05:29 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (going over plot)
20:06:14 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> the weird thing is the love triangle resolves...
20:06:22 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> in their yuri line.. and look at their section.. there is otoboku
20:06:41 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (erica hates it)
20:06:55 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> aria... which is coming out tuesday...
20:07:35 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> it has gorgeous scenery... it doesn't have any real yuri but... (??)
20:08:16 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> nothing happens... slice of life....
20:09:16 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> hayate cross blade manga... coming out in november..
20:09:35 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> it is funny... violent....funny violence... and its yuri...
20:10:02 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> coming out from seven seas
20:10:20 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> may be aware of them since they are trying to start the strawberry yuri line
20:10:28 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> they have published the strawberry panic novel/lite novel
20:10:47 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> first love sisters...
20:10:49 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> last uniform...
20:10:57 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> voiceful... (previous two are girls school)
20:11:28 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> there are a few titles they have put in the strawberry line... but it isn't really yuri, just girls who ar eclose.... tetragamaton labyrinth...
20:11:47 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> venus versus virus....
20:11:50 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> and kashimashi manga
20:12:21 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> burst angel is coming out... vol 1 of the manga just came out..
20:12:50 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> TP also put out kannadzuki manga..
20:13:09 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> which has much more anime than the manga
20:13:22 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> *more yuri than the anime
20:15:06 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> so let's just recap... maka maka.. hayate cross blade.. first love sisters.. (Etc)
20:15:23 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> one of the people they always ask is "i can't find any yuri"
20:16:29 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> yen has started to release a few marginally yuri titles
20:16:38 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> *yen press
20:16:51 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> sunshine sketch with implied yuri
20:17:10 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> and then there is... SS astro...
20:18:27 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> and.. ALC publishing...
20:18:34 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> so i have this company that publishes nothing but yuri
20:18:40 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> ive been doing it for 6 years..
20:18:50 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> the only yuri publisher out there who publishes stories about lesbians
20:19:02 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> so when you go to the yuricon shop... you will see them on top
20:19:03 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> collections
20:19:10 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> and we have anthologies...
20:19:33 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> i think that covers all the companies that publish yuri...
20:19:57 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (plugging manganext)
20:20:13 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> one of the few lesbian yuri something... will be there...
20:20:27 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> she will be at the ALC table in the artist alley
20:20:59 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> q&a now
20:21:43 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> 7 seas titles on hiatus? this doesn't have to do with sales... it has to do with license issues
20:22:05 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> the seven seas titles are on hold.. they are working on them
20:23:26 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> what is yuri anime? first of all... yuri does not equal lesbian stories...
20:23:29 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> there are very few lesbians in yuri
20:23:37 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> this is how yuricon defines yuri...
20:24:00 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> any story where one female character expresses love or desire or (something else) for another female character
20:25:04 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (lost....)
20:25:23 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (talking about otaku who want girls kissing)
20:25:28 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (with the real defiition of otaku)
20:26:39 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> there are series where in megami and newtype where they project the two girl characters on a bed when there is no yuri in the series
20:26:58 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> ex: lucky star
20:27:18 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> and yua
20:28:52 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> q: in the dub of sailor moon S.... they are made cousins... but in marimite... they are cousins...
20:28:55 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> in marimite they are actually cousins
20:28:59 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> meanwhile.. with sailor moon
20:29:41 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (....not copying this...)
20:31:53 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> ...person who writes Marimite is completely aware of the history of the yuri... ... and the anime company was aware of utena...
20:32:43 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (talking about scenes in marimite being like cream lemon and the like)
20:33:43 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (unable to hear question)
20:35:06 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (question about the editiing of ccs dub)
20:35:40 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (talking about the manga of ccs now...)
20:36:28 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> one of the questions we always get is why can't they put two characters together...
20:36:30 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> because ambiguity sells
20:37:32 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (talking about nanoha since nanoha and fate sleep in the same bed...)
20:38:20 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (which pissed off yuunoshippers)
20:39:47 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> why is there no lesbians in yuri? they pick school stories so they can put them in that space as teens.. and they don't resolve things for ambiguity
20:43:23 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (talking about a story called gunjou in morning two...)
20:43:37 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> or kunjou?
20:45:02 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> -kunjou
20:45:05 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> its gun or something
20:48:02 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (Talking about student council presidents being pervy or something...)
20:48:37 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> (rule of thumb for good/bad yuri story.... if you are watching it and you think about if a guy did it... if it seems romantic, it's good, otherwise bad
20:51:46 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> added ikkitousen to the list...
20:52:59 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> q: for tadano.. more stuff lined up?
20:53:03 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> she went on a 15 yr hiatus...
20:53:13 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> and then pops back up now and then..
20:53:25 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> one story in (something v5 and something v6)
20:54:55 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> now talking about stelliva...
20:55:04 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> and all the dengeki series that are all yuri that aren't relaly yuri
20:56:09 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> now talking about kaleido star...
20:57:00 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> wrapping up...
20:57:49 <bay|NYAF|Yuri> the end....
