This topic got me thinking about something I find a bit odd which is when it comes to yuri anime there really is a huge missing spot on the spectrum between shoujo ai love stories and outright yuri hentai. Basically we have lots of cute fluffy shoujo ai romances where nothing more explicit than a kiss and some hand holding happens and then if you want something a bit more explicit and adult where the characters actually get to consummate their relationship and make love, the options basically jump strait to hardcore hentai which is basically just a string of explicit sex scenes with little or no story. Half of those will include horrors that will leave you wanting to bleach your eyeballs.

If you are looking for a well crafted adult yuri romance story with complex characters that actually are allowed to have fully explicit love making scenes you really can't find it. It's basically either strait up porn or fluffy teen rated stuff. I love my fluffy shojo ai love stories as much as the next person, but sometimes you want to watch something a little more adult. Does anyone know of any examples that fall in between these two extremes? I can think of a a handful of manga that fit the bill but barely any actual anime.

Its actually very hard to find any romance anime at all that falls into the adult but not porn category. Josei demographic manga don't get a lot of anime adaptations period and that's where you'd most likely find an adult oriented yuri romance (I refuse to use the term shoujo-ai as that term has some unpleasant connotations in Japanese. Always use Yuri.) Can't think of any off the top of my head that have a yuri romance. Quite a few stories on close female relationships like NANA, but I can't think of any straight up lesbian couples.

Generally speaking your best bet would be to look to the Seinen demographic, as there are significantly more Seinen adaptations than Josei, and Shounen and Shoujo are almost always right out when it comes to "adult" relationships. Athough pure romance seinen are not terribly common and are usually male/female focused, you may have luck finding more adult Yuri relationships in non-romance seinen though, although they may or may not be focal. Gacchan and Margot from Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere come to mind.

Yeah, it's always struck me as bizarre that the adult romance genre is basically a ghost town in anime. I do read a lot of Seinen and Josei manga and I was just hoping that some of those sorts of more mature stories had been adapted into anime. As for the terminology used to describe this genre its gotten the point where I have no idea what I should be using. I used to call everything in this genre yuri, then I got chewed out for that by a bunch of people claiming that yuri was only the more explicit stuff here in the west and shojo ai is the correct term for more fluffy lesbian romance stories. I know in Japanese that yuri is the only term they use for any sort of girl love.

Stawberry Panic and Sakura Trick are my two favorites. SP for the melodramatic feels and ST for the sweet fluffiness of it. Candy Boy is another great one if you don't mind the incest. It's a short series too so it doesn't take too long to watch.
Konohana Kitan was my favorite yuri anime of last year and my favorite yuri ship so far this year is Eiko and Kiyose from Slow Start.
