What Yuri Series would you Recommend?




Recommended for people who are new to Yuri:

Girl Friends - Manga
---This was my first Yuri manga and part of the reason I read/watch as much as I do... I think this is at the top of my favourite Yuri series list... I've heard a few people mention the series really needed more comedy but overall.. I love this series :D

Strawberry Panic - Anime / Manga
---Umm... I dont like this show, I think I'm the only one who doesn't.. Either way I think this is the one show people watch when they get into Yuri so... (Sorry I can't be bothered to continue... NEXT)

Sakura Trick - Anime
---For people who just want the show to do something... I've heard a lot of comments that Yuri shows are too slow... This isn't :)

First Love Sisters - Manga
--- This is pretty close to my favourite manga series (just behind Girl Friends) Its worth a read but its a pitty it was never fully released by Seven Seas in the US

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recommended for people who have watched a few shows already:

Kashimashi Girl Meets Girl - Manga / Anime
---The manga for this series wins hands down, the anime was good but the ending killed it for me.. Some might say this isn't a true yuri for various spoiler reasons.. but yeh.. I enjoyed it

Aoi Hana (Sweet Blue Flowers) Anime / Manga
---This was my first Yuri Anime and it was enjoyable,, people have mentioned it drags a little and thats why I'm putting this here rather than for newcomers... but I enjoyed it :)

Sasameki Koto Anime / Manga
---I'm not going to go into this at the moment, but yes. Watch it

Candy Boy - Anime
---Not a great deal I can say about this series but I really enjoyed it... Its one I would say is a Must Watch


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just for a mention

Sono Hana
---Yuri Visual Novel / OVA - 18/21+

Lonely Yuri
---Yuri Visual Novel - All Ages


I could continue.. but for now I will stop

Don't worry, you're not the only one who doesn't like Strawberry Panic. That Anime seriously was quite painful to get through.

As for Kashimashi, haven't read the manga, but which Anime ending do you mean? The TV Series ending or the OVA ending? I personally thought the OVA was quite nice.
But this certainly is not a True Yuri series. Neither is Kampfer, which many people seem to categorize as so.

For Anime, I would recommend the ones you stated above, but adding in:
Maria-sama ga Miteru
YuruYuri
Simoun
Kannazuki no Miko

...there really aren't that many Yuri Anime, sadly.

For completed manga(once again, the ones you stated aside)
-Ameiro Kouchakan Kandan
-Gokujou Drops
-Strawberry Shake Sweet

For on-going/dropped(not dropped by me, but scanlation groups)
Citrus
Shinozaki-san ki o ota shika ni
Majo to Houki to Kurobuchi Megane
Choir

Finally, I recommend heading to the Yuri-ism site, or to DynastyScans, and reading most of their doujins there. I highly recommend the KyouSaya doujins by Momoya Chika/Pikachi.

Yep, beautiful sites they are. I felt the same when I found them. ^w^

No prob, glad I was able to get more people into them. ^w^

Hopefully the world becomes nice, Sakura Trick becomes well received, and the industry gives us more in the future!

YuruYuri

Yay.. The least Yuri, Yuri series Seriously good show though

--------------------

I need to rewatch Kashimashi but I'm pretty sure I've watched both the OVA and Series... If you have a chance to give the manga a read you will see why (imho) its better


--------------------

Gotta love DS Their tagging system acturly works so you can find what you want and no ****y ad's

Yep! I wouldn't say it's the least Yuri, Yuri series, since the girls are clearly Yuri and there, while not romantic, kisses in it. Gotta love the series tho. ^w^
This reminded me that I forgot to recommend a manga: YuriYuri(Yeah, 2 Yuri's). A doujin mini-anthology by Namori. A truly great read.

------------------

Yeah, you do that. The OVA ending concluded things fairly well I'd say, the Anime ending tho was crap.
I'll do that later on whenever I'm dead bored (meaning pretty soon).

------------------
Yeah, a truly beautiful site I say. Only problem I have with it is that you can't save the pages to your PC from their reader. Well, I downloaded most of my favorite doujins (and all KyouSaya doujins I managed to find) on my PC, so not much need to do that. XD
Yeah, the lack of ads on the 2 sites is truly a charm. Those things really get to me. =__=

------------------
Also, I saw on your profile that you have Hatsukoi Shimai in your favorites. Why didn't you add that one to the recommendations?

Great series indeed!

You can buy artbooks, huh? I"m dirt poor so can't afford to buy any. TT__TT Think I usually only buy around 2 merch a year.
Right now want some figures, magazines, artbooks, manga, BDs, and games; yet can't afford a single one right now.

But yes, Namori is amazing. One of my favorite artists ever along with Aoki Ume. No one can draw cuteness the way they can!!

Hmm... I'm glad there's groups like this so somebody like me, who's new to anime as a whole, can figure out the best places to start

I've always been a yuri fan in games, literature, etc. so when I started involving myself with anime and manga, it didn't take me long to search up a few things. So far I've seen Strawberry Panic (I couldn't get past episode five though... so boring...) YuruYuri (love it; so much fun) and Sakura Trick (I love that show and manga so much xD). I'm trying to figure out the best place to go from here. I'm okay with sad things if they end somewhat happy, but I don't like mixing depressing things with romance most of the time xD

Candy Boy :D

Its a brilliant series, very light hearted and is easily a Must Watch for Yuri Fans...

Be warned, it is a Twincest show (incest between twins) what some people might not like but really, try not let this put you off, Nothing is sexualised

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kuttsukiboshi

Intresting recommendation from me Only 2 episodes.. worth watching.. I loved this series

Nothing wrong with incest here I gave the first episode [of Candy Boy] a watch, and I must say I'm definitely looking forward to watching the rest.

Regarding Kuttsukiboshi... The desciption certainly seemed... interesting, but I'll take your word for it and give it a watch.

Alright, just joined this group but wanted to give my two cents. I've seen a few Yuri in my time, although I was excited to learn about Yuri-ism and Dynasty Reader websites.

Yuri I have seen, though, that have been listed so far would be:

Strawberry Panic
Candy Boy
Sakura Trick
YuruYuri
Simoun
Kannazuki no Miko
Kuttsukiboshi

Manga that I have read would include:

GIrl Friends
Ameiro Kouchakan Kandan
Gokujou Drops
Strawberry Shake Sweet

Some others that I would like to mention, that I found to be interesting enough would be:
Akuma no Riddle
Deadly girls with a little bit of Yuri later on, I kinda liked the action which is what I pretty much watched it for.
Love Live!
Is that technically a Yuri? I figure it has enough doujin to technically be considered one, especially since it's pretty much an only girl cast. Only seen the first season so far.
Venus Versus Virus
Well, this one might actually just be my wishful thinking, because them getting together would be pretty fantastic.
Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san
So this one I'm pretty sure is Yuri as well, it's on Crunchyroll right now and I've only seen a couple episodes but it's also a manga and from what I've read so far they're pretty interested in each other. Wish the episodes could be longer though.

Anyways, that's all I can think of right now.

Did anyone actually mention Yami to Boshi? Pretty sure that one was yuri, for reasons known if you watch the anime.
