Need to ask what everyone thinks - I was at Smash convention in Sydney and the local bookshop has Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid in the Yuri / Yaoi section. I wouldn't of thought it be classified as Yuri.

Yes it is yuri. But of the non porngraphic variety. Not all yuri is porngraphic, and the show you mentioned is an example of non-pornographic yuri. Miss Kobayashi Dragon Maid is a comedy, fantasy, slice of life anime with slight yuri content of non-pornographic nature. It is Yuri because some of the female characters show love and affection towards each other, and there are even fan service moments where two females get intimate with each other.

i mean, it has alot of the elements that makes up yuri, but its more light hearted than anything. tooru clearly shows that she has feelings for kobayashi. i guess it comes down to how you perceive the genre , but in my eyes it makes sense to classify miss kobayashis dragon maid as yuri.

It is generally located with other conclusively yuri content in actual Japanese manga shops so it's at least perceived to be yuri by the Japanese. Beyond that, I guess it depends how explicit you need your yuri to be in order for it to be considered yuri. For me, it pretty clearly crosses the "But they're just friends!" line deeply enough and often enough to be considered yuri. It's certainly not just teasing or baiting.

They are basically rising kana together. They clearly are a family. A family with two women as parents is clearly yori in my opinion.

I'd say that it more so just has Yuri elements to it. I wouldn't classify it as Yuri.

Tohru certainly hopes that it's yuri! (And I think that Kobayashi is slowly warming to the idea, especially with Kanna's presence. . .)

It's a comedy rather than a romance and the yuri elements tend to be mostly unrequited, but its hard to argue that this show shouldn't have a yuri tag stamped on it somewhere. We have at least two strait up in your face confirmed yuri crushes that partially drive the show's main plot on top of a load of subtext, so the yuri elements are ever present and an integral part of the show even if they aren't what the whole show revolves around.

It's about the mildest possible form thereof... so mild it's fair to argue that it doesn't qualify as yuri in the sense of what people would expect when they hear the term.

There is no porn involved in Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. but good how I say girl on girl relationship. Also, keep in mind Australian government think's all violent and sexual content of any sort in a tv 14 show should be banned.

My apologies for telling the truth as I thought the person starting this thread wanted to know why Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid would be considered yuri there. As we saw Left for Dead 2 banned there till 2014.
