My Top 10 Yuri Anime

Spoiler warning!

Among all of my Top 10 lists, this was one that was still missing, so we gotta change that quickly!

Though, before getting into the list, let me say the following: Since we unfortunately still don’t have that many full yuri shows, you’ll also find shows with either heavy subtext or yuri as side stories in this list. With that said, let’s not waste any more time. So here are my Top 10 favorite Yuri anime. Enjoy!

My Top 10 Favorite Adult Manga and Doujinshi [Updated]

Do not read this if you are under 18.

After more than two years, this little list definitely needs an update! When it comes to manga and doujinshi, two years can be quite a huge span of time, which is why a lot of things can happen.

It couldn’t be any more true in my case, which is why a whole lot of things changed from my initial list that I shared with you in 2013. Most of the works I listed back then either changed places or were completely replaced with other works.

However, I will apologize to you in advance. Compared to manga, the amount of doujinshi you’ll find here is going to be quite overwhelming. But, as stated many times already, it’s especially easy for me to get hooked on something when I already know the featured characters. This couldn’t be any more accurate when it comes to stories including sex. I mean, come on, if you ship characters from a show, book or anime, you often can’t help but want to see them take things to the next level.

Well, as I’m saying that, I yet again notice that I might come off as a huge pervert. But oh well, there’s nothing I can do about it, since it’s pretty much the truth anyway.

Enjoy the list and feel free to tell me about your picks as well~

My Top 10 Yuri Manga That Should Be Made Into Anime

I’ve already made a similar post to this, talking about what kind of yuri manga I’d want to see animated and which manga combinations I think would make the perfect yuri anime. But since this post is already pretty old, I decided to update it, which is why I’ll now present to you my Top 10 Yuri Manga that should be made into Anime.

As always, this is only my opinion, so feel free to tell me what you think is missing in this list~

And before people point it out, not all of my picks are Manga, there are some games added as well.

10. A better Touhou anime

As great as the few Touhou anime projects are, they are still not what I really want to see.

You have the choice between fanmade projects that are either not voiced or that come with art and animation that is simply not as satisfying as we’d want it to be. Furthermore, the few episodes we’ve already gotten don’t really come with a plot that can be used for a whole anime, and that’s something I really don’t understand, given the numerous characters and their individual background stories. Honestly, I think the possibilities for a Touhou anime are simply endless.

Especially since we’ve now also gotten a Kantai Collection anime, I demand to see something similar for this game as well!

My Top 10 Favorite Yuri Pairings [Updated]

Just like I did with my Top 10 Favorite Yuri Manga list, I’d like to update this one as well.

I have quite some additions to make, as well as changes to apply to this list. Also, since it’s already been a year since I posted most of my Top 10 lists, some others need to be updated as well, so please stay tuned for my updates on those, too.

But for now, let’s come to my actual entry and start with my new Top 10 Favorite Yuri Pairings. I decided to add some doujin recommendations as well this time. So for each pairing I’ll name, you’ll find my favorite doujin about them as well. Enjoy~

shoukaku zuikaku kancolle yuri

10. Shoukaku x Zuikaku (Kantai Collection)

Well, I guess my hype for Kantai Collection knows no bounds, so this is not going to be the only KanColle pairing you’ll find in this list. Furthermore, it was really hard for me to decide which pairing I should go with. Should it be Ooi x Kitakami, or how about Kumano x Suzuya? In the end, I decided for Shoukaku x Zuikaku simply because I think that they are unbearably cute together~

Also, did you know that these two, as well as many other KanColle pairings are sisters, or sister ships in this case? I actually didn’t know when reading my first KanColle doujinshi and even up to this point, I can’t really say that it bothers me in any way. But how about you take a look for yourself? Despite knowing that they are sisters, I bet you still won’t be able to resist them~

If you like this pairing, check out the following artists: Ooshima Tomo and atataka_bot

My recommendation: Yuriduru by Ooshima Tomo

My Top 10 Favorite Yuri Fanfiction

Since I’m such a huge fanfiction fan, I believe something like this shouldn’t be missing. Still, I think this post will mostly be a copy and paste post, since almost all of the fanfics I’ll name are already in one of my two fanfiction recommendation lists that I made some time ago. Again, I have to note that I don’t know how many people are really interested in something like this, but I really hope that I can at least help some of you find something new to read~

10. Bad Dog
Source: Shingeki no Kyojin
Author: CanaanAlphardForever

Description: Krista nearly hits a dog with her car during a storm and takes it home, only to find that it’s not just a dog, but a person named Ymir seemingly stuck within a curse.

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Supernatural
Pairing: Ymir x Christa
Words: 52,029
Chapters: 30
Status: Complete
Link

I just came across this one a few months ago and fell in love with it at first sight. Other than the characters, this fanfiction has nothing in common with the Shingeki no Kyojin anime and manga. So you could say it’s a rather light and fun story that is quite easy to read and very entertaining on top of that.

My Top 10 Favorite Yuri Artists

For some reason, I just won’t run out of new material for Top 10 lists. But this time, I think it’s a really important list.

Well, I tried to postpone it long enough so I’d have enough time to post reviews of each and every artist that I wanted to name in this list. However, I didn’t manage to do so, which is why some of the artist reviews I wanted to write are still not done, but they will follow soon, I promise.

So even though I wasn’t able to do so for all the artists, at least in some cases, clicking on their names will redirect you to my reviews about them.

With that said, enjoy the list~

precure yuri doujinshi

I had a really hard time deciding which artist I should go with, and as you can see, I just couldn’t decide for one of them, which is why they have to share this place.

The two of them actually have quite a lot in common, so maybe it was a good decision. First of all, both artists are absolutely stunning when it comes to releasing cute/ecchi works. I’m mostly annoyed by ecchi stuff, but those two add just the right amount in just the right places. Also, they balance it out by adding some totally cute and fun elements to the story, which makes these stories just irresistible for me.

On the other hand, however, both of them tend to release some NSFW stuff as well, and while the ecchi-level in their SFW doujinshi was nicely balanced, they go full-out when it comes to 18+ stuff.

In Kasumi’s case, I can still tolerate, and even like it, even though he added some quite “odd” themes in his newer works, but Pigeon Blood…. Let’s just say that he went a little too far for my liking. Well, these futanari doujinshi were just extreme, especially compared to his other works.

9. Citron
madohomu madoka homura yuri doujinshi

This was a hard decision…. Do I prefer the fun MadoHomu stuff that Forest Village comes up with, or is the cute NSFW MadoHomu stuff that Fukuya does more to my liking? In the end, I decided for something in between, and that is Citron.

I know that this artist hasn’t been around for too long. Well, okay. It’s more like the translations of Citron’s works haven’t been around for too long, but in this case, I yet again fell in love at first sight.

Also, Homura is so damn sexy in these works~

girl friends milk morinaga

Milk Morinaga is considered to be something like the yuri manga queen, and to some extent I agree with that. Girl Friends has been, and probably still is, one of the greatest yuri manga for many of us.

In my eyes, this masterpiece still hasn’t been topped by any other manga, and there surely is a lot of competition out there. However, the fact that this one manga is so great, doesn’t help the fact that her newer ones can’t really live up to it. I’m still waiting for another one by Milk Morinaga that at least comes close to her two greatest works, Girl Friends and Kisses, Sighs, and Cherry-Blossom Pink.

7. Nanzaki Iku
shiznat nanzaki iku yuri doujinshi

I found out about this artist right when I got into reading yuri manga and doujinshi. The ones who are familiar with this artist probably already know just what kind of doujinshi I first found by this artist. It’s, of course, her ShizNat doujinshi.

Thinking about ShizNat actually always makes me think about these works. I loved them so much back then, and I of course still do, but her newer works as well never fail to please me.

I wouldn’t mind some more ShizNat stories, but her original works are pretty great as well~

amano shuninta yuri manga

Unlike Milk Morinaga, this artist always releases works that are on the same level of awesome. In this case, however, I’m still waiting for that one work that will completely sweep me off my feet, and I’m pretty sure that an artist like Amano Shuninta is capable of doing so.

But with this said, please don’t get me wrong. So far, I loved all of what she’s released, and that alone makes her a great artist in my eyes.

nikomaki yuri ooshima tomo

Closely followed by artists like isya, Ooshima Tomo still manages to score as my number one NSFW yuri artist. In her case, I don’t even know whether there are any SFW doujinshi at all, but when it comes to this artist, it’s actually a blessing.

I can honestly admit that I enjoy reading her works so much, simply because the sex is depicted so nicely. I don’t even care whether I’m familiar with the characters, I just love everything this artist comes up with. In fact, she’s so good at what she does that I even started liking one specific KanColle pairing that I didn’t even know existed. This coming after I read her doujin about them.

yuri manga minase ruruu

I think I’ve never fallen in love with an artist faster than I did with Minase Ruruu. It took me no more than one of her works to not only fall in love with her art, but also with the way she manages to simply get the story across to the reader.

Her works always show the same awesome themes: We see two girls falling in love, which is quickly followed by some sexiness. The great thing about it is that even though Minase depicts some quite sexual actions, it usually never crosses the line, and it just teases us, but in just the right way.

Unfortunately, it’s been a while since Minase released a new yuri work, but I sure hope that it won’t take that long until we’ll get a new one.

isya 434 not found yuri manga

Let’s list some facts: Isya is one of the greatest NSFW artists the yuri community has ever seen. Isya is also one of the greatest Precure artists. And finally, isya is one of the funniest yuri artists that I know.

That last fact might sound a little random, but isya is one of the few artists that can really speak English, and you can write her whatever you want, and she’ll most likely reply. But what’s really awesome about it is the fact that she uses her Twitter and Ask.fm accounts to write some really random and hilarious comments, constantly talking about yuri and how sex between her two favorite characters will eventually save the world.

Seriously, isya is awesome!

nanofate tokoharu yuri doujinshi

I know, this artist hasn’t been active in years now, and I doubt that we will really see new stuff in the future. Still, I can’t stop hoping that Tokoharu will rise from the dead and bless us with some more of these ultra cute NanoFate doujinshi that I love so much.

Well, in this case, I wouldn’t even mind if this artist decided to draw some doujinshi for completely different pairings as well. As long as they are as cute as Tokoharu’s previous works, I’m totally fine with it.

mokokeine vivit gray yuri doujinshi

Did this really come as a surprise? For the ones who have followed my blog for a little longer, it surely didn’t. Shinoasa pretty much leads all my other manga and doujin related Top 10 lists.

Unfortunately, Shinoasa has changed two crucial things lately: One, not all of his/her works are MokouKeine-related anymore. Hell, I even remember one original hetero doujin that was released last year. Secondly, Vivit Gray kind of changed from doing heartwarming yuri doujinshi to doing cute and funny ones.

The art is still gorgeous, and I’m also happy that MokoKeine is still one of Shinoasa’s main pairings, but I really miss those bittersweet and heartwarming romance doujinshi from a few years ago.

I wanted to name so many more artists, but I decided for a Top 10, instead of a Top 100.

Just for convenience, here are some of the artists that at least came close to my Top 10: Waterfall, Niratama, Saburouta, Mira, Takemiya Jin, Neko no Sakegoto, Rireba, Pikachi, Forest Village, Fukuya, Yotsuhara Furiko, Momono Moto, and so many more….

My Top 10 Favorite Yuri Characters

After I already made a Top 10 list of my favorite yuri pairings, it’s now time to list my favorite yuri characters as well. This time, I will only list characters that we can be sure are into girls, or at least one specific girl. So stuff like Touhou characters will not be mentioned. With that said, as always, enjoy~

10. Akane Ryuuzouji (Walkure Romance)
akane walkure romanze

Best yuri girl of 2013? Yup, that’s right. In my eyes, Akane definitely deserves this title. Well, we should probably not talk about how things will eventually turn out for her in the original game that Walkure Romance is based on. So let’s keep this book closed and just see her as the great lesbian she appears to be in the anime.
