Chikane & Himeko, sold out

Wasabi Toys finally sold their Chikane and Himeko figures at a recent sale. From 3300 pesos each down to 1300-something. Totally missed it.

At least I managed t buy the Sega Prize figures of Yoko and Nia from Gurren Lagann at Jebb's.

Cheeky Angel

Gotta love the Miki/Megumi relationship.

You're Under Arrest (Tagalog dub)

Natsumi and Miyuki are played by Pinky Rebucas and Kathyin "Teng" Masilungan. They were also Ursula (Utena) and Angie (Anthy) in Ursula's Kiss (Enoki Films USA's alternate title for Revolutionary Girl Utena). Wonder if it's just a coincidence. Not like they'd deliberately play up the yuri subtext.

D.C. ~Da Capo~

Miharu seems a little too attached to Nemu. Then there's the girl who wanted to date Mako.

R.O.D the TV

Since Animax-Asia started re-running the Geneon dub on weekdays last week (the back to back Sunday episodes weren't convenient for me), and I spotted DVD volumes 2 and 5 cheap (500 pesos each, still sealed) in one of the toy shops in Shoppesville, I decided to bite the bullet and won an eBay auction for the limited edition of volume 7 (less than $35 total, still sealed). Just need to find the best deal for the rest of the series.

Of course now I'm probably tempting fate, and suddenly a cheap thinpak re-release will be announced.

Maria Watches Over Us

Animax-Asia just finished re-running season 2 (11pm, Sunday), but will be showing season 1 (and 2) again at 10pm, weekdays, starting May 20 (replacing Jigoku Shoujo S2). Next Sunday will have Paradise Kiss at 11pm, and not Marimite S3 OVA like I expected. Need to watch the S3 DVDs.

My Code Name is Charmer

This is one of Narumi Kakinouchi's lesser-known works. Got both English-translated volumes cheap a few weeks ago.

Volume 2 has the heroine Naomi going all akogare over Kaede ("Even though I'm a girl, I think she's hot!"). Yuriest bit is the school nurse heavily implied to (exclusively?) prefer girls.

H manga yuri

I've noticed that in newer, less-censored tankoubon by my favorite H manga artists (Satoshi Akifuji and Tamako Kimio) there's also little to no yuri. At least I still have their older stuff that has yuri.

Special A

Akira seems pretty attached to Hikari, and has an awful lot of fangirls.

Meg and Jo in Little Women. Eleanor Campbell and Monica Mildrake in Emma. Mikage and Tomomi in Miracle Girls. Tarta and Tatra in Magic Knight Rayearth. Just a little hint of yuri.

Mai and Ai in Twin Dolls/Twin Angels was a little more gratuitous

Marimite S2

Finally finished watching the DVDs. Disc four was a little too melodramatic (the Sachiko/Yumi tiff wouldn't have happened if they'd just talked like souers should), but the end makes up for it.

Couple of errors. Double-entry for Yumi/Kana Ueda in episode thirteen's English credits. More annoying was the inverted subtitle colors for Special 6; black with yellow outline and black (not transparent) background, which made me think they were setting up a gag about the lighting. Fortunately turning off the subs made it watchable, though I had to remember the translation beforehand or grok the scene on my own.

EDIT: The inverted subtitle colors were just a playback glitch on my DVD player. Worked fine on my laptop, then on the DVD player after reinserting the disc.

Wandaba Style

Susumu's mother asked the Mix Juice girls if they wanted her body, when what they actually wanted was to go back to Earth. Of course the girls loudly proclaimed their heterosexuality.

Azumanga Daioh

Currently up to episode 14 of the Tagalog dub. Nice bit of "self-yuri" by having Michiko Azarcon as Kaorin and Sakaki. Also seeing a a bit of Kagura/Sakaki.
