YKS - A Yuki Kaori Shrine

All about Kaori Yuki

Hi and welcome to A Yuki Kaori Shrine, French fansite dedicated to the Japanese mangaka Kaori YUKI (由貴香織里), with the description of all her works, galleries and the main collectibles available. This is a non-official website that I try to keep up to date as much as I can since 2002. Beware, the place is full of SPOILERS!

For Contes d'Antan (yesteryear tales) the version 8, I use the PmWiki technology. The site also becomes interactive with the ability of commenting my news. For practical reasons I don't separate Kaori Yuki and site news anymore. However, all her news hold the specific tag: "Kaori Yuki" that will filter them conveniently.

This site is mostly French only but I've spread English words here and there so that you're not totally lost. I also write news in English since March 2008. You have access to a 'Translate' button (by Google) at the bottom of the pages through 'AddThis' bar. You can also use Bing for alternative translation. Lastly, don't hesitate to write me, I'll be happy to answer!

Happy new year 2018

My best wishes for the new year! May 2018 be under the sign of dreams come true, optimism and enthusiasm ♥ the world needs it.

It has been a very long time since I last drew fan art... Tonight I've got an itch to draw something, and unexpectedly it's a fashionable Olga who came to life under my pencil to wish you a happy new year!! °O° (Olga is wearing a Versace outfit n.n) I've also added a few wallpapers that I made specially for you, faithful fans of Kaori Yuki sensei that you are! They exist in 1920x1200 and 1920x1080 on the fanwork page.

Chapter 37

Alice in Murderland - 架刑のアリス - chapter 36 ended the Miser x Alice part. After their fight, Olga picked up an exhausted Alice to lock her up. With the title page of chapter 37 featuring Melm (Merumu), Kaori Yuki is clear about the next step of the story: the last and youngest Kuonji son becomes the new concern of Stella.

Recently released volume 9 starring Miser somewhat inspired me and I've created a wallpaper with her and Alice. Available in 1920x1200 (16/10) and 1920x1080 (16/9). I've also finally uploaded the last missing title pages (ch.34, 36, 37) scanned by me!

As a reminder, let's see the state of the releases:

  • Japan: 9 volumes, 37 chapters prepublished in "Aria" by Kodansha (38th for December 28, 2017)
  • France: 7 volumes by Pika
  • USA: 7 volumes by Yen Press (8th for February 2018)

Alice v.9

On the 7th of November (side note: my b-day ^^) the 9th volume of Alice in Murderland was released in Japan. In this book we witness a wild fight between Miser and Alice, under joyous observation from Olga. But in her mad moments, did Miser really turned against her good friend Stella? *don't spoil, don't spoil*

Chapter 37 of the series will be released in the first Aria issue of 2018, sold on 28th of November.

The new version of my site Angel Sword about Angel Sanctuary is now finised and online, excepted the English pages which are still being added. Gomen!

New autograph and my todo

The latest issue of Aria, #9 released end of July, marks the magazine 7th year existence. As each year on the occasion, every mangaka with an ongoing series dedicated a drawing of their characters. Kaori Yuki made an Alice sneakier than previous times. Moreover, this year 3 different postcards sets with colourful illustrations from several Aria series are available. Alice from chapter 25 was chosen to be put in set A which exists in 7 copies only! (I didn't check it but I suppose these are zen-in.)

Kaori Yuki won't be published in the next issue, Alice in Murderland chapter 35 will be released in Aria #11 on September 28, 2017.

Now a little glimpse of my todo: French translation of Parasyte oneshot is soon done, and I'm still trying to put back online my old Angel Sanctuary archive site Angel Sword! There's just so much to do!

Oh sweet holidays!

My, time flies, to think we are already in July, and that I'm soon leaving, oh sweet holidays! Yippie ^-o-^ See you in September to enjoy the releases of Alice in Murderland volume 6 in France on the 6th, and volume 7 in the US on the 19th.

In Japan, Alice in Murderland volume 8 has just been released. The cover features Alice and the twins Sol & Mare. There, our heroine spends some hard time fighting her brothers, and as always we discover (a bit) more about Kuonji family and their enemy the Washimiyas'.

French japanime fair Japan Expo started yesterday near Paris, however this year I've read no announcement and seen no products related to Kaori Yuki and her works. I found a list of goods to hunt here. Unfortunately there will be no Japex for me this year... *regrets*

And Alice is still running...

Evening everybody! Volume 5 of Alice in Murderland has been released last week in French, this is a interesting part of the story where we learn more about big bro Zeno and big sis Ibara. Alice is totally unleashed once again, for our great pleasure. :3 I added the French atogaki of the book, available on the atogakis page as always. And at last can you discover the title pages of the latest 2 chapters (31 & 32). Chapter 33 will appear in the next issue of Aria, #8, to be released on June 28.

A fight is ongoing since the previous chapter: Alice is opposing Mare again, then at the end of this chapter his/her twin Sol shows his true face: he'd own the power of fire?! Chapter 31 will be published in the next issue of Aria, on April 28.

Alice covers scans

Hi... time flies! Nothing wow today, I only updated info about Alice in Murderland (something that I also do without warning at times) and scanned anew the latest book covers, they now look closer to the real thing. I also added the atogakis of these same books (4 to 7).

Now a glimpse at the upcoming releases:

  • Alice in Murderland volume 5 in France (9782811634315): May 31, 2017
  • Alice in Murderland volume 6 in the US (9780316469319): April 18, 2017

In Japan, volume 8 is most likely to be expected in late summer... Kaori Yuki sensei did not write new chapters recently - what is uncommon - and I didn't find anything about the matter (yet).

I have quite some more pictures to add to my site... though time for preparing them, I lack. :(
