It could be a liking of the main protagonists and seeing both of them with personality traits that they find attractive being together could be an even bigger turn on than a hetero relationship. Like if someone likes an assertive person as well as a shy person, seeing them together would be a huge turn on. It's the same thing with like yaoi. It's all about what a person is into.

If you aren't talking on a sexual level, then it may be because it's fun to watch/ read.

I like yuri because it's often more full of honest emotions, and they are told more realistically. Het romance anime, One of the characters is usually terribly 2d, usually the dude. And generally they are all the same thing, especially the harem shows. I like the sometimes, but yuri romance is of better quality. That and girls are prettier.

I have a question... in lot of shows there always seems to be a girl who fantasizes about yaoi or yuri relationships (take Chitose from YuruYuri or Ebina from My Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu) but how come there never seem to be any guys that have these fantasies??? I have never really read or watched any BL so this may be ignorance on my part.. but the guys always just seem to get nosebleeds from straight things like seeing a girls panties. It would be kinda refreshing to see a male character who has the yuri fantasies lol !!! plus lemme know if there is a character/show where this happens!


Fujoshi are a real thing in Japan unlike the excited nosebleeding boy trope. So they are included quite ofyen becaise they ate encountered a lot. Nosebleeding boys are just a comedic trope.

It tends to hit romantic themes but without the excesses of the 'sucky protagonist' romcom or ecchi.

It's one of the few ways to actually get a romance story without otakusisms.


This pretty much nails it for me. Depending on the series (some do get quite ecchi) you have characters with more depth who express a greater range of emotion in relationships that feel more "real" than the standard fare.

I like it for the same reasons that have already been stated most of them tend to tell a love story better then others, and i look at it like I would any other genre if the story is good/ likable characters then Ill watch it. My recent favorite being Sakura Trick, ok story IMO but I loved the characters, the girls were adorable and it had more than a few scenes that made me and my fiance laugh out loud

I think it's totally adorable sometimes lol, if not totally pleasing to my perversions.
