i guess technically my first yuri was sailor moon but i didnt pick up on it at all because i was so young, but ive heard great things about strawberry panic! (Ill be watching that next week once i send back Kannazuki no Miko) as far as Kannazuki no Miko goes tho i was in love with Chikane, i pretty much had an eyegasm (something about closet obsessive lesbians that ride horses and shoot arrows is attractive to me xD) but then there was that guy >.< and then a robot o.O other than that its been amazing so far im getting the last disk tomorrow in the mail. Im not sure how i feel about the rape thing tho, its like a split opinion i guess. I will check out that last one thought thank you so much! :)

Lol, no prob. If you need any more titles, feel free to ask. =) I know plenty. XD

The thing about yuri is there there are very few titles that are actually yuri/shoujo-ai. Very few titles that are written with the intent of two girls in a relationship. A lot of yuri fans take subtext (blatant or not) from non-yuri series and call it a yuri.
An example I can think of is Saki. In this anime, there's a lot of hugging and blushing, but there's no "I'm in love with this girl!" declarations.
Sometimes it's not even as obvious as that; like in Maria-sama ga Miteru, there's hugging and thinking about another character, but you'll have to turn to fanfiction for anything farther than that.
Kannazuki no Miko and Strawberry Panic! are both wrote to be two lesbian relationship animes though so have fun! XD
Not trying to discourage you of course! All I'm saying is to watch recommened series with yuri goggles turn up and your imagination turned up higher. ;P

I typed a lot more than I thought I would. o-o From one yuri fan to another? =D;;;

Sailor Moon is a good start actually. Even at a young age, I picked up on Hachiru rather quickly. Some years later with Cloverway's dub, they still couldn't hide the truth with the 'cousins' thing. Even loose yuri subtext can be found; Aluminum Siren and Lead Crow's 'rivalry' from Sailor Stars is a good example. =p Then again, this is coming from the same person who had his Mugi goggles activated back in 1992 when introduced to Rose of Versailles. Oh Oscar; you and Rosalie are the true pioneers of our genre~

Kannazuki no Miko does have it's distraction from it's main yuri stars with Soma and his mecha, but it all works in the end. I can go on about Kannazuki; let's just say Soma is a major plot device for something the viewers wanted from the start. In other words, you will love the contents of disc 3. ;p We all win in this case. *sigh* That ending. And I thought very few anime could capture that Tamahome and Miaka-esque ending. Silly me~


Kannazuki no Miko is a good start, in addition to the more outward (compared to MariMite) Strawberry Panic!. Fanfiction and light novels will get you through the sorrow of completing series and manga books. Sometime in the future, when the school girl feel gets a bit stale, give Simoun a try. Didn't expect much when I first saw it at Yuricon 2007, but it took the genre to the next level. Enjoy the journey, Athena!

P.S. I moved your top 5 Mai-Otome character thread to the Mai-Otome forum. :3 Since you love yuri, check out our yuri forum:

Remember how Natsuki forgave Shizuru for her actions? No matter how "unforgivable" they seem to the casual human being? That's what happened between Chikane and Himeko. You can toss the "rape" defense for both scenarios, but we know they were both influenced. ;p Or some people think. It was clearly the case for Chikane; Shizuru's can be debated.

Last my friend checked, it wasn't on NetFlix. XD Things might have changed since, so go for it! If not, you can always get the set cheap on Amazon. For now, focus on Strawberry Panic! I'd love to read your thoughts! :3

I'm glad you brought that up! ANIME WORKS released both Strawberry Panic! and Simoun on DVD for North America with no dub track. Whether they knew a dub would kill both yuri series or they were too low-budget to afford a great voice acting cast, Japanese with subs is good enough or me. But like you said, it's worth everything just having them in your possession. Gay Rainbow

May I recommend the anime Saki? While there isn't any kissing or anything like that, it has PLENTY of yuri hints! However, it's only available on livestream video sites. Also I would recommend Revolutionary Girl Utena both the movie and the series. The yuri in that is not even subtle.

If you need further laughs with tons of yuri/subtext, try Yuru Yuri:



Like K-On! without the instruments and nice animation. Just more in-your-face yuri. Mugi would so appreciated this universe. ;p It's an amusing little series that pokes fun at stereotypes within anime/manga. :3
