How do you feel about Yuri Anime?

I really enjoy Yuri. I'm actually really sad that Sasameki Koto's anime is no longer available on here ( or legally in general right now ). It's one of my favorites. Preference wise, I prefer it when couples are official and on a romantic level, but this does not stop my Yuri goggles from turning on at the slightest inclination of girl love and subtext. lol

I'll just leave this here:

I don't watch it myself, but I just wish yuri wasn't for fetish driven otakus, same for yaoi

I've only seen Sakura Trick and it was mostly bleh. Not horrible but not that interesting either. I read a manga recently called Girl Friends that was much better. Really enjoyed it.


Girl Friends was a good one!

I sometimes watch Yuri (e.g. the Riddle anime or Yuriyuri)
Doesn't really bother me as long as it has a good story.

yuri anime? well.. its complicated.

i loved candyboy.
i hated mariaholic.
i lost intrest in kamisami girls meets girl.

tho really yuri falls into two basic catagories (reguardless of content)
anime and hentai.

some yuri anime is just hentai minus the sex sceens. dont really care for that.
but im down for any good love story.

To be honest, I used to avoid yuri anime like the plague because I naïvely assumed they were all about the sheer novelty of seeing two girls kissing and such. But a while back I watched an anime that, while not about yuri first and foremost, did feature two girls in a romantic relationship, and I honestly felt the show handled it in a really mature way. There were times when they were depicted as lovebirds for comic relief, but there were other times when I could see that they were really close. Perhaps more importantly, they both felt like girls to me; that is, I didn't get the impression that one of them was a typical male personality who just happened to be depicted as female for the sake of yuri. Since then, I've been a lot more open-minded about yuri, and while I still get a little skeptical when I see something advertised as a yuri series, I make sure not to dismiss it just because of that.


If you want to blast the novelty into smithereens read Octave or Blue Friend.

I'm curious about that one statement you made about a female character having a "typical male personality". I'm just curious, in your eyes, what must a woman be like to be a woman?

I don't mind it if it's done well. I only dislike bad anime. Good anime, regardless of subject, is always something I enjoy.

Oh my god and here I was thinking this whole time that no one knew about this manga! Girl Friends was my first experience with the Yuri genre, and it all went from there..

Back on topic: Yuri is amazing and props to the OP for looking at the girls' point of view and mentioning yaoi. I love both!

I may have worded that poorly. I don't have any specific standards for what makes a woman a woman or a man a man. I just got the impression that both characters were comfortable being female and being in a relationship with another female, as opposed to one of them being, for all intents and purposes, a male character who is only considered female for the novelty of having a relationship between two women. That is entirely a gut feeling, though. I'm not sure if I really answered the question.

For the record, the anime I was talking about is called Kanamemo.

I don't really watch Yuri much, but I did liked Kannazuki no Miko, Yami to Bōshi to Hon no Tabibito, Sakura Trick, & that Akuma no Riddle one.

Never watched one... They've always repulsed me. Just my opinion, though.

I don't know. I haven't seen much yuri anime, but I feel like it objectifies women.

Hate to say it but that's pretty common in all forms of anime. Just like every other genre you have to weed out the good from a bunch of bad.

It's cute, heart warming, and it doesn't drag on forever.
