2 More Fictional Yuri Fangirls: Back-to-Back Kaishaku

Whoops, two more.

My thanks to Kaishaku for creating this series, as well as the guy working in the CD section of the Fululu Garden department store in Japan who ordered in the KnM drama CD for me. Himeko's the character on the left.
7. Himeko in Kannazuki no Miko by Kaishaku (manga, anime, and drama CD): Even though Himeko only reveals herself to be a gushing yuri manga fangirl in the drama CD, her fan enthusiasm is very well played out. There's an especially great scene in which Chikane gets Himeko to read a portion of her yuri manga to her- twice. XD I don't much care for the anime anymore, because it's dripping with angst and crippled by mediocre execution, but the drama CD (and the Ayako Kawasumi CD I got in Akiba *cough cough*) still makes for a fun listen. Seriously Kaishaku, make an OVA out of this CD as your next project. ^^

Same thanks to Kaishaku for creating this hilariously crappy series.
8. Kozue from Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora by Kaishaku (manga and anime): The Makoto to Kuu's (the protagonist) Himeko, the Wakaba to to Kuu's whiny Utena, her fannishness isn't shown directly in the show, but it is alluded to by Kuu. When Kuu sees Kaon and Himiko (who are based off of Kannazuki no Miko's Chikane and Himeko) kissing, she not only realizes that they're in love, she realizes that she's seeing the same thing she's seen in her roommate Kozue's manga collection. lol
