Yoko Hanabusa Will Join Japan Expo Sud
Yoko Hanabusa will be back in France in March next year! From the 9th to the 11th of March, 2018, Japan Expo Sud will be held in Marseille Chanot, the convention on Japanese pop culture in which Yoko Hanabusa appears as a guest in partnership with her French publisher isan manga. She has had good memories with people in the country, and has recommended Japanese fans to visit France. Now, as the fourth volume of Gwendoline, the French version of Lady!!, has been published, and the author has been invited to Japan Expo Sud, it will become another memorable opportunity for French fans to meet her.
First volume of Gwendoline with isan manga’s catalogue (2016) and bookplate
Lady lady in our hearts
Most of us love the old anime lady lady and how much we longed for the Japanese release on DVDs or bluray.
Since the beginning lady lady was never released on DVDs. We want to show Toei studio that there are many fans out there who still love lady and would like to watch it in Japanese.
I need your help please spread this topic and tag it as #ladyladyinourhearts in all social networks. So that our voice can be heard.
I really appreciate every single contribution to this matter from the bottom of my heart.

Hanabusa-sensei has been a prolific manga artist since she debuted in 1978 with “Koi wa Happy Snow ni Notte” in an extra issue of the monthly Hitomi magazine. She is well known for her shôjo manga Lady!!, which was serialised from 1986 to 1991 in the Hitomi magazine and adapted into two anime series, Lady Lady!! and Hello! Lady Lynn, and one film version of Lady Lady!!
As a prominent, popular mangaka of shôjo manga, Hanabusa-sensei took on the challenge of a new genre: mystery and horror mangas, in which her works constantly appeared in periodicals like Monthly Horror M. Afterwards she began to work on another new genre, that is romance comics for young women, a manga adaptation of romance novels from all over the world. And then, with much anticipation, Lady Lynn!, the sequel to Lady!!, finally appeared serially in the Roma x Puri (Romantic Princess) magazine, of which the publication was sadly discontinued.
Currently, attending manga exhibition events abroad such as Japan Expo and Japan Touch in France from time to time, Hanabusa-sensei is continuing to publish romance comics, most of which appear in the Harmony Romance magazine.
