I originally signed up to CR to watch Aoi Hana, and loved it. I had a crap week and decided some nice yuri romance was just what I needed... But it's gone?

Where'd it go?

And more importantly, is there somewhere we can see updates of what comes and goes so we aren't caught quite so by suprise when our favourite shows vanish without a trace? It's bad enough I pay as much as US customers for less content.

It is odd, however, that it appears to be completely gone. Typically, when the videos are removed for a series, everything else is left behind, similar to this:

I have asked in the other topic why Aoi Hana was handled differently.

Ahh, I missed that when I went looking. Thank you very much for the reply and information. It's sad, but hopefully someday it will come back, or get dubbed or something. Good yuri romance that isn't all about The Sex is hard to find. Actually BEING a lesbian, they are doubly desirable for me. I like het pairings a lot too, but sometimes it's nice to see people Like Me.

I'd LOVE to see them, on that note, pick up Kashimashi, a wonderful trans-positive anime that has wallowed in obscurity for years.

If you have not seen it already, Sasameki Koto ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/sasamekikoto#s=/library/Sasameki_Koto/media ) is another one you might enjoy.

Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl is available on DVD here in the U.S., but sadly does not appear to have a legitimate online venue. It is handled by Anime Works (Media Blasters), however, so there is a chance that it may appear on CR. That bad news is that if so, it would be restricted to the U.S. & Canada, like the other titles here from Media Blasters.

I watched it in the past as a fansub, and currently have it in my Netflix queue as part of my continuing march to "legitimize" my fansub viewing whenever possible (not to mention being able to view it in better quality).

As you might have guessed, I am a fan of yuri romance myself. My favorite remains Kannazuki no Miko.

Thank you for the recopmmendation, I will watch that next! I'll have to see if Kashimashi has been released here; I too saw it as a fansub and would really like to support it 'properly'. :)

Aoi Hana is a boring yuri, it felt like it was much long then just those 11 episodes :P
