Sadly it's not coming out soon.

http://www.gomanga.com/news/press_055.php
Girl Friends, a tale of forbidden love for fans of Strawberry Panic, is an all-new girls romance manga series by yuri icon Morinaga Milk:


When it comes to grades, bookish high school student Mariko Kumakura
is at the top of her class. Socially, however, she is shy and lonely,
typically eating lunch by herself. Enter the charismatic and beautiful
Akko Oohashi, whose mission is to befriend Mariko and burst her out of
her introverted shell. In the process of transforming Plain Jane Mariko
into one of the cutest, most popular girls in school, deep feelings
begin to emerge that suggest something deeper than friendship. Will
these feelings destroy the budding relationship between Mariko and Akko,
or will it turn into something else? Seven Seas will release the entire
five-volume series in two affordable, 496-page omnibus editions ($17.99
each) with the first edition, Girl Friends: The Complete Collection I, on sale October 2012, and Girl Friends: The Complete Collection II on sale January 2013.

And with pre-order discounts, that's about $26.00 for what was a five-volume series in Japan. (I have to say, the omnibus idea is a good one for a series which isn't likely to generate a lot of sales due to being a niche one--I guess the omnibuses for Strawberry Panic's manga and novel series must have sold well enough to suggest it was viable) Very Happy I just hope people snap it up so there's a chance that other yuri series can be brought over. (An omnibus release of the whole Iono the fanatics/Iono-sama Fanatics series would be great!)

I plan to buy this, certainly.

(I've also downloaded scanlations. I've seen some horrid official translations, so I'm saving scans just in case.)

I enjoyed Girlfriends, but I don't think I'd actually spend money on it unfortunately :/ It was good, but I don't feel good enough to be buy-worthy.

It's also available in full right now on JManga, for those who prefer digital versions (I'm holding out for print, since it's already been announced).
