Renewed Yuri Manga/Anime/Drama CD Shop
$500 per month
The Yuricon Shop needs a full overhaul. We need time and money to get that done. This goal will allow us to once again have the most comprehensive, easy-to-find collection of Yuri-themed media on the Internet...something the Internet desperately needs.
Paid Guest Reviews
$1,000 per month
One of the very great pleasures of Okazu is the chance to get writers from all over the Yuri Network to offer opinions and perspectives that are not my own. Up to now, all Guest Reviews have been done from sheer love of Yuri. And we love those reviews so much, we'd like to be able to pay the reviewers. They've been giving their time and dedication to us...we want to give our support to them. Helping Okazu reach this goal will help a lot of young writers get their start, as well.
Okazu Adjunct Reporter
$2,000 per month
When Okazu reaches this goal, we'll be hiring an assistant to help us cover an event during the comics year, with total focus on Yuri.
