As promised, here’s the list of my personal Yuri Manga Legends. In this one I’m going to name those manga characters that either left a big impression on me or that simply need to be listed here because of their huge popularity in our yuri community.
However I’ll try to refrain myself from naming characters from manga with anime adaptations, because I already listed them in my Yuri Anime Legends List.
In other words, you won’t find characters from series like Aoi Hana, Sasameki Koto, Kannazuki no Miko etc in here.
Other than that I don’t have much more to say, so enjoy the list~
|Akko and Mari (Girl Friends)
First off, I of course have to name the two most popular yuri manga characters, Akko and Mari. Probably every yuri fan knows them and I’m pretty sure most of you also love them just as much as I do. And let’s be honest here, these two really match each other perfectly and I would love to see an Anime version of Girl Friends so badly. But even though that probably won’t ever happen, we still got a Drama CD, which is great as well.
I have read similar posts on many blogs and forums, so I thought, “Why not make my own list as well?”. So here comes my very own list of lesbian anime characters that left a great impression on me. Please note that I have watched a lot of yuri anime, but definitely not all, so everything that aired earlier than 2000 will not be mentioned here, since I haven’t watched it.
Prepare for a loooong list!
Slight warning: I tried to not give away too much, but there will be some spoilers.
Chikane Himemiya/Kaon (Kannazuki no Miko/Kyoushirou to Towa no Sora)
Everyone knows her, and most likely, everyone loves her. Chikane is like the showpiece lesbian character ever since Kannazuki no Miko aired. She is rich, talented, intelligent, and beautiful, but what matters the most is probably the fact that she is madly in love with her schoolmate—or more precisely—her fated other half, Himeko Kurusugamwa.
