When it comes to Yuri I try to avoid them because of the possible chance that it could cross the line between Ecchi and P**n, and I do not watch anime for that reason.

Sakura Trick was the first Yuri that I went into fully aware of it being a yuri, because of what I had seen around the internet and heard from other people. I was greeted with something that I believe could almost be a kid show in my opinion. Homosexuality is a very touchy subject and not everyone agree's with it in one way or another. But Sakura Trick did something with it 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

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 anime was my first Yuri and i don't know if i will see more of the Yuri category but if they are like this one, i will have no problem watching it.

For me there's no story but i will try to explain.The story is simple but at the same time is really good, but nothing beyond good, a love story between girls but not just normal girls, two girls that share a bond, and that bond is the kiss, they attend this high school that will close but will wait three years till everybody graduates, and this bond started because Haruka felt sad that 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: Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san
Both are Yuri comedies. Sakura Trick is long with lots of kissing, Inugami is a little more innocent. Characters remind me of each other. 
reportRecommended by MrMulligan
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.

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.

Anime: Kanamemo
Just a normal day for the daily lives of the girls activities. Though, what lies deep inside of their hearts, is a friend who they are really close. Both of the series is a slice of life comedy show featuring an all female cast, where they just enjoying their time. Though several scenes are girls that are "playing around" with each other and having those moments where they promise to stay with each other until the end.

Sakura Trick takes place in a school focuses two main characters as close friends and relationships. Kanamemo follows a girl who have a job as a  read more
