Hey guys! So as you probably have found out, it's kind of hard to find the yuri and yuri-interest / arguably yuri shows on Crunchyroll. Especially after Yuri!! on Ice came out! (Seriously, guys? You had to do that to us? Not cool!)

Here's what I know is Yuri (or arguably Yuri) currently on Crunchyroll. If I missed anything, or you have details to add, please add more in this topic! Let's make a resource for each other!

- Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid (One-sided main character confirmed, love interest returning feelings heavily implied by end)

- Bodacious Space Pirates (Background characters confirmed, main characters yuri-interest)

- Yuruyuri (don't know much about it)

- Sakura Trick (don't know much about it, but there is girl kissing)

- Sweet Blue Flowers (don't know much about it)

- Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san (don't know much about it)

- Sasameki Koto (don't know much about it)

So you want to characterize the amount of lesbian shows CR has to offer?

... Characterize? No, I don't know what you mean.

I, as a lesbian who enjoys lesbian-interest shows, want to be able to find them! And other people who enjoy lesbian interest shows might like to be able to find them too.

Therefore, a fan-created list.

Of the shows you said:

Sasameki Koto: as an obsessive lesbian yuri fanatic, one of my two favorite series, definitely continue with the manga after watching the 12 episodes (which follow the first twelve chapters of the manga devoutly with a little added charm). Tall, masculine, closeted girl likes her best friend. Best friend, an open lesbian, only likes short, feminine girls and doesn't know about her bestie's sexuality, let alone her crush... Drama and comedy ensues, definitely a must watch.

Aoi Hana: a sweet little story, just like Sasameki Koto, watch the anime, then continue with the manga, anime is better than the manga for the portion of the story it contains. Takes a more realistic and less comedic approach, with more subtly and nuance (gags are simply told as jokes like a person would in real life, characters rarely raise their voice and speak like in real life, the story is told with a lot of femininity in it's presentation. Good if you like emotional dramas and don't mind the slow pace (ofc, manga you can breeze through so this only applies really to anime for the most part.)

Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san, an anime shorts adaptation of a 4-koma comic series. It's cute, with lesbian overtones. And that's about all there is to say about it. There's a rly gay scene but if you're looking for anything substantial turn around and watch something else, not to mention it's extremely short.

Miss Kobayashi:I have only scene short clips of it, but from what I've seen it has a good sense of humor. Yuri-wise, as I've seen and heard nothing so far but this, it only comes to an *almost* couple, and so as far as I am concerned, not a true yuri.

Sakura Trick: If you like fluffy lesbian kisses and fanservice for 12/13 episodes, with no actual true plot, enjoy. It's literally just 12/13 episodes of lesbian makeout scenes, so if you're into that, this is the show for you.


YuruYuri
: Not a yuri, just undertones/overtones, lots of gay crushes, but nothing ever comes of them, so if you're expecting real yuri, you'll be very disappointed. However, the show has a surprisingly good sense of humor for the most part, so I recommend giving it a try regardless.

*One to Add to the list* : Wandering Son (Hourou Musuko): An anime about a transgender girl in middle school and her best friend who is a transgender boy. The trans girl is a lesbian and her romantic life with the other girls (and the trans boy) is a key element of the story, and she ends up dating other girls. Less conventional than anything else on the list, but a yuri (and a good one) nonetheless. Created by the same mangaka as Aoi Hana and arguably better. In addition, the anime like Aoi Hana and Sasameki Koto only covers a portion of the manga and thus should be continued after watching the anime. However, unlike the other two, the manga carries a slightly darker tone, and the anime starts in the middle of the manga and follows a specific arc, rather than beginning at the start of the manga and going forward from there. The anime is still very well done (the characters are voiced by people the same age of the characters, in other words, mostly children, and they pull it off very well).

--

If I think of any more I'll be sure to add them to the list. It's great to see more yuri fans coming on here, I hope my additions are useful~ <3

*thought of another one~*

Yuyushiki: Not a yuri, more a moe comedy like YuruYuri, carries lesbian overtones and honestly is one of the better anime comedies. Very under appreciated. A group of three best friends make a club about googling random things. Two of them are dunces who tease the levelheaded "straightwoman" (get it? ha ha, I'm so funny), and are super gay for her. The show practically begs you to ship them together.

This one used to be on Crunchyroll, but was taken down a long while ago after it aired, but I feel the need to share it regardless:

Yuri Kuma Arashi: One of, if not the best yuri anime created so far. It's made by Kunihiko Ikuhara, who was the auteur of Revolutionary Girl Utena, one of the first true Yuri anime and of the most unique and praised anime in the business even after 20 years. Yuri Kuma Arashi (literally Lily [i.e. Lesbian] Bear Storm) is a surreal love story that tells like a fairy tale, and borrows from many influences, many from other mediums and western film. I don't want to say too much, except this *Do NOT stop at Episode 3* The show purposefully is made to turn people away by episode 3, but stay and it will reward you with a wonderful story. Like all of Ikuhara's works tho, it's really trippy. Just fyi.

Sound Euphonium for sure.. well, until they lost the guts to follow through once they were about 95% of the way through the show.

Because Fujoshis rule the anime sphere and dictate you can only search for Yaoi.

probably worth noting that while there's a page for sasameki koto here it doesn't seem to be available in the us . . . not really sure which regions it is available in or if crunchyroll just doesn't actually have it at all anymore?

some more series coming to mind:

riddle story of devil - yuri is mostly just (very heavy) subtext in the anime but the intent is pretty obvious at least and apparently several ships are canon in the ending of the manga. but aside from a few details like that the plot is pretty much the same i think, even though the anime ended like two years before the manga did . . . i don't remember that much about it honestly but i'm rewatching it currently and it's pretty fun

mikagura school suite - take a wild guess what my favorite franchise is , , , the protagonist is super gay but there's not really any Actual Romance i guess (plenty of subtext though) and the fandom tends to treat it more like a reverse harem honestly but yeah

flip flappers - canon yuri and a lot of other cool stuff here. in the end it wasn't really as perfect as i was hoping it would be from the first few episodes but still really highly recommended if you want something unique and colorful and fun. although the ship they go with in the end is . . . the most obvious choice, which i can't really fault them for i guess, but if you're like me or a big chunk of the fandom really you MIGHT find yourself feeling like yayaka was a way better option at that point =(

locodol - just subtext but that subtext gets VERY unexpectedly heavy near the end. i don't remember much about this show since i watched it in like 2014 but it was cute and fun from what i remember, and not really what you'd probably expect from an idol anime at all. there's two ovas here too apparently but i haven't actually seen those yet . . .

kill la kill - (spoilers i guess??) mako asks ryuko out on a date in the end which . . . a lot of people insist doesn't make it canon, and apparently episode 25 (which i've never watched and i don't think is on crunchyroll) kind of ignores it so maybe they're right? i don't know , , , but there's Subtext at least and it's a really fun show in general if you're not bothered by way too much fanservice i guess

puella magi madoka magica - everyone probably knows about this one but i guess it's not listed here yet so . . . subtext of the "no one interprets it any other way" kind at least. it gets a bit more overt in the rebellion movie but that still isn't on crunchyroll (i think it might be on netflix or something?)

magical girl raising project - there's a lesbian couple in this but i'm pretty sure at least one of them dies later on. like, i didn't watch that far and i'm not sure if i ever saw actual spoilers, BUT i'd be surprised if they both survived just given the nature of the show. i remember it being . . . more interesting than i expected, but that's about all i can say =o

anne-happy - lots of subtext, one of the girls is pretty unambiguously in love with her friend and they act like a couple. i'd only recommend this if it's the kind of thing you tend to like though . . . like it's slightly above average for a "cute girls doing cute things" anime but that's not saying very much. definitely not on the level of yuru yuri but at least better than like, kiniro mosaic or something

amanchu - i remember this one being Pretty Gay (and really good in general) but i didn't keep watching after like episode 5 for some reason so i don't know if it ever really went beyond the Subtext Zone. i should probably finish it , , ,

izetta: the last witch - another one that was . . . pretty hard to interpret as anything other than romantic at least. also another one that i never finished even though i really liked it so , , , yeah

There's Kobayashi and Puella Magi Madoka Magica...

I'd say Revolutionary Girl Utena, but that's not streaming anywhere.

And ignore the others: Sakura Quest isn't yuri


Maybe RWBY?

yes you are pretty correct except that it is mainly just subtext in the anime and if you pay attention is pretty obvious but nothing ever happens in the anime at least

still a good watch all the same though

Sakura Quest isn't yuri. Sakura Trick is a different story.

If you choose to list shows that only have yuri subtext, too, the list grows significantly. Lostorage Incited Wixoss has it, every iteration of Love Live! has it, the list goes on and on.

Definitely, although people have expressed reservations about its initial happenings. Try the first ep.

Also currently simulcasting, Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles seems to be along Dragon Maid's lines of unrequited (so far) affection. Bonus food porn.
