Yuri anime and manga

By: Anime Feminist February 6, 201714 Comments

Last week we talked about the erasure of lesbian romance in the dub of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid. This week, let’s look at lesbian representation in yuri anime/manga and other Japanese pop culture.

  • What is your favourite lesbian relationship in anime/manga?
  • What is your favourite kind of yuri story or relationship?
  • What is your least favourite yuri trope?
  • How do you think Japanese yuri is different to western lesbian romance stories?
  • Which yuri anime/manga do you recommend?
  • Which yuri texts in other forms of Japanese pop culture do you recommend?
