Who’s The Best Yuri Pairing? – Yuri Tournament: Round 0

Good news, everyone! After seeing how much you liked our last Yuri Tournament, we decided to start another one.

This time, you can decide which yuri pairing most deserves to be seated on the golden throne of Yuri Love. Sounds exciting now, doesn’t it?

However, this time, we will do it slightly differently from last time. The choices will be a little less than what we had to offer last time, leaving us with a total of 96 yuri pairings.

Down below, you can see the 91 pairings we’ve already come up with. In this round, Round 0, you will have to determine 5 more pairings that will then be added to the list. If you can actually name more than 5, we’ll have to replace some of them, but we’ll see about that when it actually happens.

After this round, we’ll move on to the actual tournament that will consist of 6 rounds, leaving us with 3 pairings for the last one. I actually have high hopes that this will make the final round even more exciting~

With that said, feel free to take a look at our choices so far. If you disagree with one or more of them, or if you simply want us to add another pairing, please let us know in the comments below.

Have fun and let the Yuri games (yet again) begin!

  1. Touko x Komaru (Danganronpa Another Episode)
    http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=manga&illust_id=47283609 This one has some good images to work with

    And if you're going to have Precure, you may as well bring in the yuriest of the Precure (Doki Doki), and the best couple to represent that would be http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=36532525

    Otherwise, the ones already there cover my lists decently enough.


  2. So, here we go ~

    * Dekomori x Shinka – Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai
    * Konoka x Setsuna – Negima
    * Youmu x Reisen – Touhou

    If you count Legend of Korra, can I nominate RWBY pairings? :p
    * Yang x Blake
    * Weiss x Ruby
    * Blake x Weiss

    Also dat MariAri pic.. :p


  3. Good list so far…how about;
    A Channel – Rin & Tohru
    Monogatari – Hanakawa-sama & Senjougahara-san

    And while were shipping our own pairings;
    Black Lagoon Rev & Etta

    I'm forgetting some fun ones, lets wait for the coffee to kick in.


  4. yep, +1 for Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere – Malga & Margot
    Cross Ange – Ange & Hilda + Chris & Rosalie
    Shinozaki-san Ki wo Ota Shika ni! – Akina & Kaede


  5. I normally just lurk around here silently and normally I only take part in polls and normally I don't respond to things but this is interesting and I'm going to try to give it a shot.

    I notice that a certain LoK pairing got on here. I wonder if there's anybody else on here that's familiar with Steven Universe, which, similarly, is a Western cartoon with canon yuri pairings. Þ:
    I don't know if they're very widely recognized on here, but Ruby x Sapphire and Pearl x Rose would be interesting pairings to have on here. //eheh.
    //Tbh I've kind of been waiting to see if the show ever got checked out by you guys. Though that may be an impossible wish.//

    In the realm of actual anime…I don't have many things to suggest, I don't think. Just rarely shipped or obscure pairings from shows that have already been named (imo the world needs more Haruka/Mitsuki which was something I ended up shipping harder than HaruYuu somehow???). I appear to be cursed with shipping mainly things that nobody else ships.

    — It would appear that I am useless. oops.
    I tried.


  6. Hisa and Mihoko are going on my list as well, thanks!
    In case of manga characters I'm not so sure yet. I prefer anime ones over them, especially since we only have a few more seats left.
    (Yes, I know I added Mei,Yuzu and Maki, Akko… :P)


  7. Hanekawa and Hitagi have like one yuriish scene together (I think), but they are both into the main guy, so they will probably not make it.

    In case of A-Channel, Rock has to decide 😉


  8. In case of Yuru Yuri I could have added even more pairings, but I tried to stay to the most popular ones. And Kaede x Yuzu…. hm, they were hinted at a little, but compared to the two main pairings they will probably not make it past the first round even.


  9. You're not useless, you actually proved to us that pairings from RWBY are pretty popular as well. Since you're the second one suggesting them, we'll take a closer look.

    Maybe you can help us out even more and tell us about the most famous RWBY pairing out there~


  10. Considering all the others you're interested in adding, we might need to take one out in order to fit them in. I recommend removing Madoka x Homura OR Akagi x Kaga OR Mokou x Keine. Better yet, how about removing all three, just to make sure. Sound good, L? 😀

    If not, I think there are probably other pairings that would be more deserving. 😛


  11. Uh, these are from the 4 main characters, Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang. Since they're all main characters they're all pretty close in popularity. If I had to guess it'd probably be Weiss x Blake.


  12. Some of these has been mentioned before, I feel like they should be there.
    Yuru yuri: Yui x Kyoko
    Cross Ange: Chris X Rosalie
    Akuma no riddle: Hanabusa x Banba

    Two last ones were at least my favourite pairings from their respective series. My favourite yuru yuri pairing Himawari x Sakurako is already on the list, but Yui x Kyoko is a close second.


  13. I'm all for a RWBY pairing as well. The standard pairings are usually Ruby x Weiss and Blake x Yang, my personal favorite being the former.

    Nothing else I can think of off the top of my head that hasn't already been listed or mentioned; looking forward to this tournament.


  14. yay a new tournament, this one is definitely going to be hard when it starts since i see so many of my favorite couples. as for deciding on more couples i want to add okay lets see angehil (ange x hilda) from cross ange, hotaru x yuma from netsuzou trap, miyuki x hikari and yuri x marina both from gamma, and vivihart (vivio x einhart), subatea (subaru x teana) from mahou shoujo lyrical nanoha, tsubasa x maria, hibiki x miku and kirika x shirabe from symphogear, suou x mayuri and suou x rikka from flowers. also if its allowed nana x yukari and yuikaori. there are so many more couples i want to add but i think ill leave it at that and i hope some of the ones i listed can make it into the tournament


  15. We just notice, that there really are a lot more pairings that should go to the list. Maybe we need to exchange some, since many of the ones you listed simply need to be in here… damn 😛


  16. So many pairings too add but such little space left, damn this is such a hard decision 😛
    Thanks for leaving so many pairings (and making things so much harder for us) 😀


  17. Here's my suggestion switch yui x chinatsu for yui x Kyouko and for something a little off the beaten path Karen x kanbaru from the monogatari series. I would havr to say konata x kagami for lucky star but it's okay if they don't make it. These are just my suggestions feel free to use any of them or none it's just fun to participate.


  18. I nominate:

    Yukino x Kanade (Candy Boy)
    Natsuki x Shizuru (Mai-Hime)
    Korra x Asami (Legend of Korra)
    Shizuku x Eris (Sono Hanabira)
    Yuuna x Nanami (Sono Hanabira)


  19. Gina x Ginger (Gangsta)
    Shiori x Caroll (Chirality)
    Momoko x Shinobu (Shoujo Sect)
    Maya x Shinobu (Shoujo Sect)
    Momoko x Hayato (Shoujo Sect)
