Who’s The Best Yuri Pairing? – Yuri Tournament: Round 1

After one week, we have received loads of suggestions for the missing few pairings, so thanks a lot for the great help, guys!

As mentioned in Round 0, this tournament will consist of 6 more rounds, leaving us with 3 pairings in the final round. Just like in our last tournament, you’ll be able to choose between 2 pairings, reducing the number of participating pairings by half each round. We yet again went with a mostly random set up, but spiced things up in some specific cases. You will see what I mean after viewing the tournament bracket right here.

Before moving on to the actual poll, we’ll name the six additional pairings that made it to the tournament, thanks to your suggestions:

Hanabusa x Banba [Akuma no Riddle]
Hilda x Ange [Cross Ange]
Rikka x Mana [Pretty Cure]
Mihoko x Hisa [Saki]
Ruby x Weiss [RWBY]
Chihaya x Haruka [The iDOLM@STER]

Since we have now added 6 pairings, instead of only 5 like we said we would, one pairing from our initial list had to move and make room for a new one. That’s why we decided to replace one pairing we thought would get few votes, Akagi x Fubuki [Kantai Collection].

With that said, let’s move on to the tournament. Have fun!

  1. Some of those were easy picks and others made me make a tough choice. I have a few favorites, hopefully one of them wins.


  2. im so happy angehil was included in the tournament. also a lot of these were so hard to choose from but i had to pull through and choose even if some of my favorite pairings were up against each other. i cant wait for the results to come in


  3. youre welcome 🙂 im glad i was able to remind you lena k. now things will get more interesting. also im kind of sad some of my other suggestions didnt make it, but at least angehil got in so im happy 🙂


  4. Yay, for Rikka x Mana!
    Though my favorite pick (as in the one that I'll support till the end) is other pairing, this one is my top ten…

    Hope the best couple win!


  5. I must admit do voting against pairings I knew, but felt were toxic relationships, so ended up voting for couples I didn't know about XD

    Is it bad I don't know nearly 50% of the characters here? If I was at a total loss I just didn't vote.


  6. Votes cast. These polls are really entertaining! XD

    I can't wait to see the results, though I'm pretty sure, I'm going to be disappointed since most of my favorite pairings are not all that popular. I'm hoping Ayano x Kyoko get more traction as they had some screen time in the second ep of the new season of yuruyuri!

    As an aside, do you think you guys could list the series the characters are from for round 2? There were a few that had me scratching my head as to which series they were from and a few that i think i haven't watched yet. This may just be me and my poor name recall. =(


  7. It's not bad, you just have to study up a bit 😛
    We wanted to add quite a few more characters, but we also didn't want to add too many. Last time we went with 128 characters, but for the pairings we just didn't want things to get confusing, and with 260 characters in total, it would have probably ended up being quite confusing 😛


  8. Glad you like it 🙂

    In this tournament, we have some problems with missing space. Since we have pairs of characters competing against each other, it's a little harder to list them in a neat manner, which is why we left out the names of the series those characters are from.

    If you're having problems recalling what series they are from, just go back to Round 0.
    All information is listed there 🙂


  9. True I guess, but it feels like Touhou swamped this selection a bit, and so I ended up voting for the opposite pairing usually.

    I just feel Subaru (IRL: Mariko Misono) x Tsukasa (IRL: An Shoji) is an interesting pairing because of the story around the two, Tsukasa having her memories altered to make her think she's a guy, and Subaru coming to terms to her feelings for what may be a woman.

    I also like how wayyyyyyyy ahead of it's time it was with online gaming and how people interact and come together. I sometimes wonder if the only way I'll find love is online, but then you have to realise how other people treat the internet.

    Blah I've ranted and gone off topic, sorry.
