Yes we were talking about Yui, not Yuri, unless you mean that evil protagonist from Command Conquer: Red Alert 2.

Yui, eh? She's fucking hot, I can tell you that. :wink:
It's pretty not her personality to act like a Berserk Eva does but, of course, anyone would do anything to protect their child.

I thought it looked cute. My sort of strange story.


It is one of those titles that ends up better than it has any right to be (like this year's Manabi Straight -- though that title, despite often being referred to as Manabi Lesbian is only on topic if you are wearing your yurivision goggles).

After the scene setting, Kasimasi begins as ecchi comedy, and you think that's all it is going to be until suddenly there is all this quite powerful romance drama.

No, about lesbianism in regular anime. And so, far, we had been on topic.

Amazingly... seeing as this thread has me in it. I guess it's somehow a miracle...

We're coming close to having an exhaustive list by now, I think.

Japanese culture has a strong element of "schoolgirl crushes, fine, whatever; when you're grown up, that nonsense has to stop" -- there was apparently some Serious Business on the subject in the 1930s (possibly not unconnected with the number of young men going abroad).

We're now in the state where the studios know that lesbian elements appeal to a slice of the otaku population (who probably work on the usual principle that if they're not getting any action, they don't want to watch any other guys getting some); but the networks are still strict about what they will allow.

We are at least now getting lesbian shows which don't have a BAD END, even if there is still some coyness about the subject.

Yeah! I learned that from anime. In His and Her Circumstances (Kare Kano), one of the main character's younger sisters "supposedly" has a female stalker. When she tells her mom about it her mom just laughs and thinks it's cute because the one girl most likely has a crush on her daughter. I could've guessed that once the girl's got older, they wouldn't be as "oh, kawaii!" or whatever.

And that ends the random through of the day (note: no reply needed)

Najica Blitz Tactics, but only in the first couple of episodes.

Obligartory Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru.

No mention of Utena?

Green Green?

Can't forget Ikki Tousen.

Well, the black haired girl is in love with the main character.

Utena is more richly furnished with aberration, but yes, I suppose it would count. After all, it does have the first famous anime lesbian in Juri Arisugawa, unrequited though her passions might be.

Did Oto-boku have more than just girl/trap (i.e. hetero, underneath it all) attraction? (not a series I watched more than one episode of).

REVOLUTIONARY GIRL UTENA!!!!!!!!!! (though... I only really watched that anime for the yaoi... heh. But, Yes, I did remember that Juri was lesbian... and that Utena and Anthy were... well... could be said that they were lesbians... perhaps... )

Nothing outside of the "school-girl crush", but there is kissing, and even through it was a reverse trap, the girl didn't know that.

Actually, we were discussing the first man in space. Also, you need to take your meds.

As far as IT goes, I recommend the second season - Ikki Tousen: Dragon Destiny - more than the first. While season one does have Ryofu and her devoted follower, they don't get a happy end. Season two has Kan-u, who not only looks like she can bench-press a small tank but actually can, and not a small amount of time devoted to her love for Ryuubi.

As for yuri in manga, on the other hand, try Fujieda Miyabi's recent works.

I recommend the Mahou Sensei Negima manga over either T.V. series or the Neo Negima manga series any day. Unlike most other works like Bleach and Naruto, they cram as much panels and text as they possibly can into every page, and still keep a rather well-done plot going each chapter.
