Yaoi (boy x boy) is usually aimed at the female demographic while Yuri, for many is aimed at the boys. They all say that Girls find guy-on-guy hot while boys think it';s disgusting. On the other hand, guys think girl-on-girl is hot and girls think quite the opposite.

But are there anyone here who think differently? Any guy here who like yaoi and any girl here who like yuri?

I'm just asking out of curiosity. I know they exist but they seem so... rare. If you are a fudanshi or if you're a yuri fangirl, how did you end up becoming one? Why? When did it start? What made you like them?

If not however, and you're a guy who isn't a fudanshi or if you're a girl who isn't a yuri fangirl: Do you support any ships/OTPs that are one? Why?

In my case, I'm a fujoshi and not really a Yuri Fangirl but I do ship Homura x Madoka, Tomoe x Miyabi, and F!Aki x Misao because they made sense somehow. Their interactions with each other does feel like there's something more.

EDIT: Thanks for answering everyone. I'm happy to see there are people who are different from the norm.

I'm a girl and I like yuri. I sometimes like yaoi too but I am way more picky about it.

^ lol karate then why did you click on this thread ?

I like yuri more over yaoi, it gives me butterflies wayyy more.



A yuri manga series that is my favorite is called prism. ^^
It has 2 volumes, a very easy read. Gave my butterflies for days.

I'm not HUGE on yaoi or yuri but I do ship some non-canon gay ships. I personally feel like some characters have friendships that could become romance and I respect that potential.

I'm bisexual so I'm into both. I don't usually ship people but I have an opinion if people do ship them. I don't really look at characters that way.

I've seen some. Though I wouldn't describe myself as a fangirl. I don't 'ship anyone and I won't watch some stuff. I hadn't even known about the yaoi and yuri terms the first time I came across such an anime.

I don't like yuri genre stories, but I do have a few f/f ships.

To use Love Live as an example, yuri genre stories tend to be like Hanayo/Rin or Nico/Maki (which is why those are such popular ships). I ship Hanayo/Maki. And Honoka/Eli.

I also don't really like yaoi genre manga, but I like a lot of m/m ships, so maybe it's not yuri that I have a problem with as much as... romance genre work in general. I don't read het romance/shoujo either but I have het ships too.

Romance stories just seem silly to me. It seems silly to get that worked up over it, enough for it to be the whole story. I like romance subplots/ships in things, but... not romance genre stories.

. . . . anyone ship Kallen/Milly in Code Geass?

Was it reported due to not being in anime?

Dunno. If it was that would be dumb, seeing as Yaoi and Yuri don't need to be animated. They can be in manga, light novel or game form.

I can agree with DantesDesire. I've watched both genres in anime and I don't seem to have a problem with it. Love is love. :3

I enjoy both. I don't particularly like it when it's fetishized, especially by heterosexual fans sometimes, but I'm glad they're not all like that.
