Manga Giveaway: Strawberry Panic Starter Pack Winner

And the winner of the Strawberry Panic Starter Pack giveaway is…Slyphoria!

As the winner, Slyphoria will be receiving the first volume of the Strawberry Panic manga as well as the first volume of the Strawberry Panic light novels. I would also like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who participated in this contest.

For the most part, I only read English manga translations although I am working on learning Japanese. Because of this, my knowledge of yuri is fairly limited since not many titles have been licensed in English. From what I can tell, yuri is currently one of the most underrepresented genres in the English language manga market. Fortunately, there has been some increase in available works in the last couple of years or so. (This is my own personal impression, I could be completely mistaken.)

As part of the Strawberry Panic Starter Pack giveaway, I had people tell me a little about the yuri that they’ve read and enjoyed. Many of the titles mentioned in the contest comments (which are worth checking out) are not currently licensed in English. I, for one, would be really interested in seeing many of these officially translated. And I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in this. There was also quite a bit of love shown for Miyabi Fujieda’s yuri works, one of which (the first volume of Iono-sama Fanatics) has been published in English.

Thank you again to everyone who entered the contest—I very much enjoyed learning about some of the great yuri that’s out there and hope that more will become available in English.
