Listen right here to Joey and AkiDearest chat about their love of yuri anime at the 8:56 mark:

Every Tuesday, YouTubers Joey the Anime Man and Aki Dearest join forces to bring you The Anime Show, an hour that covers what’s hot, what’s not, what’s new and what you should be watching in the world of anime!

In the latest episode, Joey and Aki are talking about yuri manga and anime, aka girl-on-girl manga and anime!

This interesting topic came up after news came out that an anime adaptation of Citrus is coming soon, which prompted the duo to go through just why they like yuri anime and manga (and why Strawberry Panic is their fave!).

Noting that the girl-on-girl aspect of the genre (and the associated eroticism) may be there, it is virtually a non-factor for Joey because he just really enjoys the romantic stories and character relationships depicted in yuri anime and manga.

For Aki, she really enjoys how LGBTQI relationships are depicted in yuri anime and manga. Noting that in contrast to how Western media and shows are still catching up in terms of portraying LGBTQI relationships in an honest manner, yuri anime and manga depict LGBTQI characters and relationships as if it was the norm the whole time (which they should be!).  

Which yuri anime and manga are your faves?
