When it comes to Anime, implied sexual attraction between two female characters is an often repeated trend. The main issue here is the word "implied." Very rarely are we treated to a blatant representation of lesbian couples, and the most we get are vague undertones that are just sort of there in the background. This stirs the audience's imagination, while still playing it safe at the same time. It's a real shame, because this squanders golden opportunities for presenting unique relationships that could potentially result in more memorable characters. Sure, Yuri series have been done before, but just try finding more than a couple of read more

This right here is a cult classic, a chef d'oeuvrea buried under erroneous preconceptions and unfounded criticism. This gem is obscured because it does not shine; it is buried because its tone is that of abyssal black. Sakura Trick pries into to the darkest corners of our subconscious, the most visceral of our cognition, the most carnal of our urges, and the most primal of our instincts. Its sublimity will ever be debated yet always remain objectively irrefutable; the fundamental insight it provides into human and perhaps animalistic nature may shape the basis of sexual psychoanalysis for millennia to come.

Superficially, Sakura Trick appears to read more

Sakura Trick is a refreshingly different Slice of life show, it throws away the concept of static timelines often seen in SOL shows, there is continuity between each episode and changes in each character and their relationships, minor or major, can be felt together with the passage of time.

The show presents to us a cast of multifaceted characters and the relationships they share, not solely romantic bonds, but also the ties between friends and between sisters.

What I loved most in the show was how the show built on its characters. The show avoids the use of heavy dialogue and inner monologue as a read more

Sakura Trick is a weird one.

For starters, if you dont enjoy yuri at all, it wont reccomend you to try this one out.
The main focus is yuri fanservice after all. There is a story with romance, BUT, the way it is executed is poorly most of the times. So again dont like yuri?! SKIP THIS!

Now, I said it was a yuri fanservice, so what can you expect, if you do enjoy yuri like myself??
Every episode is divided by 2 mini episodes, most of the times, each has a different kind of mini arc story going on.
And for the most part, in each of read more

Anime: Yuru Yuri
The second half of the name 'Yuru Yuri' describes both series perfectly. Both are light hearted comedies about girls who are into girls. Little more to say about them, really.

Anime: Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo: Anata to Koibito Tsunagi
Flagship yuri Sono Hanabira is back without the H scenes. Sakura trick is very similar to the cute and warm atmosphere of Sono Hanabira. Lighthearted in a sense that this will give you the 'Hnnnng' feeling as with the other anime.

Anime: Strawberry Panic
How has no one made this a recommendation yet? It's basically an entire school where everyone is yuri. I've heard people say they haven't seen a good yuri since this show, actually. Strawberry Panic just has more of a serious tone to it than Sakura Trick does, but both are great Yuri anime's. 
reportRecommended by 2takuya
Anime: Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san
Both are yuri comedies with a bit pushy/tsundere characters with similar "simple" animation and lot of cuteness.

Anime: Kuttsukiboshi
Yuri genre. Pretty much the only difference is that Kuttsukiboshi is shorter and Sakura Trick has more comedy in it.

Anime: Kiniro Mosaic
In both shows, all the girls are very close to each other, to the extent that them being lesbians is pretty much guaranteed (though in KM, it's just strongly implied that they are and never actually confirmed, while in ST, we have at least one genuine lesbian couple).

Also, Yuu strikes a close resemblance to Alice, with her blond hair, twintails and high-pitched voice.
