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.

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.
