I was considering coming back to Crunchyroll. Streaming was flawless. Loved the quality. Seems to have tons of anime.

However, I stopped because I ran out of yaoi and yuri to watch.

They have searches for all kinds of genres except these two. How do you all find new releases? I haven't watched a new yaoi or yuri in nearly a year, and the lack of a search option for it isn't helping.

Well last summer CR got the yaoi Love Stage! and the there was Sakura Trick and Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san that they got other times. But not very recently has there been any yaoi/yuri that CR has gotten. This summer Funi got the third season of Junjou Romantica. To be honest though there isn't that much yaoi and yuri anime lately.

I agree. It's a lot easier to find manga in both genre compared to anime. I usually try to find new anime in both genre by googling them. An example would be "Best yuri/yaoi anime of such and such year" and try to find streaming sites that might have them.

Crunchyroll does occasionally announce upcoming anime in both genre even though they don't license them on Crunchyroll.

Thanks for the suggestions! Love Stage! was great.

Sakura Trick and Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san were both a little too plot-less for my taste.

It would be nice if we had separate yaoi and yuri genres in the genres list. At least that way I know if there's anything worthwhile to subscribe for.

Guess it's back to the old Google search.

There's no genre system on Crunchyroll that has yuri or yaio in it. You can use the one on anime planet.

These probably won't reveal anything new, because the tag has to have been applied for them to work, and CR isn't trying very hard to put comprehensive tags (or in some cases, any tags at all) on much of anything. Still, though, to answer your question of "how to":

/showtag?tag=yuri&type=2
/showtag?tag=shoujo+ai&type=2
/showtag?tag=yaoi&type=2
/showtag?tag=shounen+ai&type=2

These can also be found by going to show pages that you think should have the tag, and hoping that it is there as a clickable link. It would appear under the "Details" section if it exists.
