List Rules Vote for your favorite yuri anime- don't downvote something if you haven't seen it!

Do you love yuri anime or yuri manga? This list of the best yuri anime ever made, includes videos of each show's first episode when available. What do you think the greatest yuri anime of all time is? Are you a fan of Strawberry Panic? What about shows like Candy Boy or Marimite? Whichever yuri shows you love, be sure to vote for them so that they can rise to the top of this yuri anime list. It's kind of like gay anime, but with girls instead of guys.

It's true that a lot of anime have yuri moments to them, but the shows listed below truly belong in the yuri genre. If you're new to this genre, yuri anime focuses on the emotional and sometimes sexual aspects of the relationship between two women. Some people are into it because they think it's sexy, but most enjoy good yuri anime because there are some genuinely deep stories within these shows.

bryony-moonlight added Hibike! Euphonium
