Entries will be taken until June 15th - if you voted for the art contest, we *really* hope you'll submit a picture (since if you voted for an art contest , but aren't submitting, you completely failed to grok the point of voting.)

Introducing the new Yuricon Website! [14 Apr 2011|11:29am]

yuricon_alc

We've got a brand new website for Yuricon and to inaugurate it, we're running a brand new Yuricon contest!


The new Yuricon design is all about interaction - we welcome your comments on our posts and have made it easy for you to share pages of interest and, just as we want you to be part of the website, we are inviting you to be part of the decision for what kind of Contest will be our first!

We're running two polls, on our Facebook Community and Yuricon Mailing List, for you to decide which kind of contest it will be: Art Contest, Fanfic Contest or AMV Contest.
 

Since the New Yuricon is all about interaction, we don’t want to know what you want to see as a contest – we want to know what contest you want to participate in! Tell us whether you want to draw a picture of Yuriko and her friends, write a story about them or make a Yuri AMV. The contest that gets the most votes will win.

We’ll leave the polls open for a couple of weeks, so roll your sleeves up and get ready to create!


In the meantime, visit the Yuriko Art Gallery, the Shoujoai ni Bouken Fanfic Gallery or Yuri Studios for inspiration!

MangaNEXT Panel Schedule [24 Oct 2010|10:44am]

yuricon_alc
MangaNEXT, the only all-manga convention will be held on October 29-31 in East Brunswick, NJ. (Visit the website for location, registration, etc.)

Sean Gaffney and I will be doing a Yuri Panel on Saturday, Oct. 30 at 7PM.

I will be giving some stuff away, because I have stuff and would like to give it away. :-)

I'll also be running panels How to Become a Manga Expert on Friday at 3:30 and How (Not) to Talk to a Publisher on Sunday at 11:30 AM. The "Manga Expert" Panel will include a discussion of critical reading of manga (something we've discussed on Okazu here before) and how to do research. I'm a professional researcher. I know what I'm talking about in regards to this one thing. ^_^

If you are interested in being part of "The Industry" and want to know what it takes to be an illustrator, graphic novelist, how to make it in Japan or the US, DO come to MangaNEXT! It's got great guests, and lots of "how to" stuff going on. Lea Hernandez will be teaching a Manga Boot Camp and dishing about her experience with Gainax. Graphic Novelist Dirk I. Tiede, creator of OEL Manga Bizhenghast, M. Alice LeGrow, Japanese independent manga artist Kondoh Akino and illustrator Juri H. will all have things to tell you about life "in the industry."

I hope to see you there, of course. Yuricon will not have table, because I am on MangaNEXT staff so, if you see me hanging around and talking to someone, that's me working. ^_^ Come join us for what promises to be a really great con!

The Solution to the Scanlation Solution [11 Jun 2010|03:23pm]

yuricon_alc
I have been thinking deeply and obsessively on the issue of "fixing" the issues of scanlations. Recently, Jake Forbes proposed something that is almost identical to what I was thinking...and MangaHelpers today announced that they were moving to a format almost exactly what I was thinking of as well.

I had written an article about two weeks ago on the issue and my proposal, and was holding on to it in order to be a part of a roundtable on the subject at Hooded Utilitarian. With the news by MangaHelpers today, I couldn't wait and had to post my article on Okazu.

I hope you will read it, and promote it, because Yuricon supports this vision of a solution to the solution.

Yuricon memories and Mai Multiverse! [23 May 2010|11:47pm]

shiznat4ever
[ mood | cheerful ]

I hope a little trip down memory lane plus a wee advertisement won't hurt. XD

After reminiscing my time at Yuricon 2007 recently, I had to track down a social network for it. Dunno how Yuricon's livejournal eluded me for so long, but I'm glad to be a part of it. ^_^ Officially. lol

One of my finest memories of Yuricon 2007 was meeting Rica Takashima. Writer and illustrator of Rica 'tte Kanji! ^_^ She was so sweet and even said she admired Naoko Takeuchi.



Including the discovery of Simoun, which quickly became one of my all time favorite anime/manga titles. So much that I eventually purchased all the DVD volumes and the video game (which I play religiously XD) Here's footage of me playing it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUXYzWWMdBM (more available on my channel)

I had a fantastic time at Yuricon 2007 in NJ and would love to experience it again! ^_^ I still treasure my copies of Rica 'tee Kanji and Shoujoai ni Bouken to this day! *smiles* Great stories and characters make the world go round. ;)

Let's see what else...recently, I've opened a website dedicated to Natsuki Kuga and Shizuru Fujino.from Mai HiME/Otome. These two have a huge fan following and I wanted to dedicated a website to them:

http://shiznat.webs.com/

It features many HQ images, videos, fanart, and fanfiction links from fans all over the world. Including my personal thoughts on the duo, and an international community forum for all Mai HiME and Mai Otome fans:

http://ltahime.forum-motion.net/

If you would to donate anything Mai HiME or Mai Otome related to Shiznat.webs.com, I'd greatly appreciate it! Also, if you would like to join the community forum, go for it!  I started the community, but it's a team effort to support Sunrise's #1 franchise (imo).

Thank you for your time! And thank you for the great memories in 2007. I know there will be more to come in this brand new decade.  ^_^ Oh and a personal thank you to Erica Friedman, who contacted me prior to my first Yuricon. She was helpful, quick to reply to my emails and welcomed me warmly when I entered the dealer's room. Kudos! ^_^
