So, as decided by you guys, we ended up with three possible topics:
And as you can already tell from the title, we decided to go with the winner of the poll (and possibly the hardest to actually talk about).
Seeing as I’m a self-proclaimed master in the arts of Yuri, I think we have that part covered up pretty well. I also have the lesbian part down, though I fear that thanks to my still too few experiences (meaning that I’ve only been with one girl so far), I thought it would be best to get some help in that department. So I brought in NotATsun, a professional lesbian (:P), who will hopefully shine some light of wisdom on all the topics that I might simply not have the needed experience in.
We’ll divide this post in three parts:
Big Topics – How are lesbians usually depicted in yuri media?
Small Topics – Recurring yuri themes
What works do we think depict lesbians the most realistically?
2009: Obama was sworn in as president, The King of Pop died, and yuri anime had its best year ever. Looking at the current slate of airing anime is usually a depressing affair that involves hoping and praying that a show will have something, anything for us to pin our yuri hopes to. More often than not, that results in disappointment and an early look towards what the next season might bring. But once upon a time, there was no need for any of that. Regardless of the season, there was a little something for every type of yuri fan~
Coming on the heels of our latest YuriReviews survey, we thought it would kind of be a cool idea for you guys to determine which anime we’ll be reviewing next here on YR. The ten choices listed in the poll at the bottom of the post include some classic series as well as some newer ones, but I think they’d all make for interesting reviews.
We’ve listed some quick info on the nominees, as well as some questionable reasons why they should or shouldn’t be chosen. 😛
If what you’d prefer to read about isn’t listed, feel free to name your choice in the comments section~
Anime: Ange Vierge
Length: 12 Episodes
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Magic, School
Why it should be next: It’s the most recent anime on this list. Who needs iconic series when you can have shiny and fancy animation from yesteryear?
Why it shouldn’t be next: Who needs shiny and fancy animation when you can have an iconic series from yuri’s past?
We’re back with the next round! For this one, we took the time to upload all of the remaining kiss scenes, so you can actually watch all the scenes before voting for them. Super neat, isn’t it? Thanks for suggesting it, guys~

With that said, enjoy round 3 and let the yuri games continue~
