>>2484823Huge surprise on Ancient Magus Bride
>>2485707There is no requirement for a thread to be on /u/ other than it should contain yuri images of girls. Even het shows and games can have threads here as long as you don't discuss or post het images in them. Lurk moar.
I will post this in every general thread until Bocchi gets an anime.
>>2485855So, until the end of times?
>>2485856Yes, if it comes to that.
>>2485855Tomoko > Boochi
>>2485855I'm with you.
http://sai-zen-sen.jp/comics/twi4/erinna/Is this webcomic yuri?
>>2486225I don't know yuri, but it's sure cute.it's worth a shot.
I thought the shitposting would stay contained in the old thread. Can you all please go back there?
>>2486240Getting invested in a character relationship is one thing, getting yourself in a fictional relationship with fictional characters is another thing. The later is just mental illness.
SayaMado will make this thread better. Posting more.
>>2486256You're not discussing yuri works. You're just meta whining. Please stop.
So I wasn't really following anything this season other than Konohana Kitan, but what happened to some of the other prospects this season that no longer have an active thread here?Two Car thread is still alive, so I know what happened with that, but what about things like Houseki no Kuni, Animegataris, etc.
>>2486319Fucking watch them yourself. /u/ isn't here to give to recommendations.
>>2486319even things with barely any yuri like two cars get a thread here so you can guess what's with the ones that doesn't.houseki no kuni is a hard subject to start with, some of the characters looks female but they're actually genderless, so who knows if fits in here.
>>2486319>So I wasn't really following anything this season other than Konohana KitanThat's not much.Are you literally just watching yuri or what?
>>2485751So, does this have any chance to go somewhere?
>>2486339Kind of. The other things I follow don't really have anything to do with with /u/ (well, I guess Dragon Ball Super got a /u/ thread but I'm kinda neutral on the character) or aren't seasonal/aren't even anime.
>>2486342I think the red-haired girl is the Magus's bride, so probably not.
>>2486342I think the tall girl is in love with a old man, so no.
I swear the creation of yuri hentai, even individual scenes, has completely dried up.
>>2486647it was alway dried up.besides that one sono hanabira ova, there's no decent yuri hentai.
>>2486649The last hentai I know of to come out with yuri anything was the second episode of Energy Kyouka, and that was forever ago.
>>2486649I know that Shoujo Sect thought it was a good idea to play classical music during a sex scene, but it wasn't that bad.
Is there any yuri about two fujosluts falling in love with each other?
>>2486647>individual scenesThere was a loli one that was just released.
>>2486681Yes, I too like to eat poop because there's pieces of corn in there.
>>2486342Nah, the blonde's hung up on a guy she killed with her leanne-sidhe-ness. >>2486348>>2486350The magus said he was planning to make her his bride, but he's weird and inhuman and may not entirely get what being a bride means, so who knows. For her part, the girl's just happy to have a home and people who don't treat her like shit. So no het yet, but no particular indication that yuri is coming, either.
>>2486806I feel like having the titular character in a show called The Magus's Bride ending up with a girl would basically be hetbait though. Doesn't seem like a good business move and kind of weird storytelling to make it end up that way.
>>2486806>So no het yetReally blows my mind
>>2486842There's a yuri series called Candy Boy. Really how can anything shock /u/
>>2486871You wanna try saying that again? Maybe try reading the chain to.
>>2486806>So no het yet,No it is 100% het. There is an obvious romance between the two main characters.
>>2486806Holy shit, are we desperate here? The manga hasn't got even goggleable yuri. Dunno if the anime has fucked things up once again with retarded fanservice.
>>2486971>has fucked things up once again with retarded fanserviceThe hug scene was in manga too. Not sure about kiss, i think it was on the cheeck.
>>2486971we really are.I keep saying on /a/ that we don't think something is yuri just because two girls looked at each other, but I think I might've been the one in the wrong now.
>>2485580>I'll count genderswap as yuriStopped reading from there. Kashimashi is a fucking embarrassment to yuri. Why the fuck did it even have to have genderbending bullshit?
>>2487272>Was never shown his face>Never wanted to be a guy anyway>Stays female and doesn't think about going backSay what you will about genderswap but kashimashi did it right
>>2487276Yeah, maybe we should consider Kampfer and Twintail yuri too, rule63tard. There are some boundaries between yuri and LGBT, just so you know.
>>2487280The more the merrier. But i'm not entirely sure about Kampfer or Twintail. Now if changes were permanently. Yeah, i think it would pass. But alas, no such luck.
>>2487280You couldn't have this compromised hissy fit in the other thread? Christ you're terrible.
>>2487291>general yuri discussion : the thread were you whine about people having discussions about yuri in generaldelete this thread already desu
>>2487295>shitposting is discussionAt least you're honest.
>>2487272I'm watching it for the first rn and it seems pretty decent. Could do without the sleezy dad 'jokes', but the yuri's pretty pure.
>>2487280They are not the same, the poor boy never feels comfortable as a man, when he was turned into a woman by the unusually complex Alien plan to save a race, his life was basically better.the other two, on the other hand, are no more than Harem Het of a guy who becomes a woman with the convenience of a script and that stupid concept of "the environment of only women and a special man also joins"It seems that Kashimashi had a VN, how was it?
It's yuri if the genderbent guy decides to stay a girl permanently at the end, otherwise it isn't yuri.
>>2483724 Updated it again to get rid of that disgusting crap ruining it. Don't know why no one thought about Gochiusa.
>>2486281Why did they look up?
>>2487346>Reversable S+M biker dykes>Disgusting crap
>>2487346Because Sharo isn't in love with Cocoa. All the pictures except for the Gochiusa one are lesbians hitting their lovers, the one you added is just a lesbian hitting another lesbian. It's close, but it doesn't quite fit the theme.
>>2487442Oh Sorry, its hetshit! Forget It.
>>2487440what a faggot
>>2487346How gay is gochiusa? urara levels?
>>2487440Get the fuck out of here, you fucking dumb bastard.
>>2486738>individual scenesOr you could just eat corn by itself. I'm not judging, poopbreath.
>>2487346What's the sixth one from, on the school rooftop?
>>2487010Some fags here are just so fucking stupid and desperate.
>>2484827Black hair gets some as a reward for winning her arcade mode in the fighting game iirc.
>>2486806>show with bride in the title>both her and the guy are open about the intent to marry and blush at the thought of doing just that>they also blush when a side character teases them about having kids together>no het yet>no>het>yetCan we please stop getting some desperate? I love yuri, but this is getting pathethic.
Some posters really need to go see the doctor and check if there's any permanent damage from having yuri goggles on tight enough to cut off the flow of oxygen to the brain.
>>2487426We don't need useless crap that generate shitstorms like Two Car. If you want it to be there, You may as well include Hibike, LWA, and Cross Ange.
>>2487346Because >>2487439, maybe you could try Himawari and Sakurako. They fight a lot.
>>2487515This is not your safespace
>>2486806This post is the perfect example of extreme unhealthy delusional denial
>>2487569>safespaceDid you see two car thread on /u/? Now that what i would call safespace.
>>2487585No matter how much you try to spin-it, complaining about a male self-insert or isn't actually related to the yuri genre.
>>2487605>complaining about a male self-insertMe? What? Are we talking about same show again? >isn't actually related to the yuri genreMy point is. If you think this is damage control, i reccomended check thread on /u/
>>2487605Neither is that series, yet here it is.
>>2487611What do posts like >>2467002 have to do with yuri? No one denies that the MCs are straight. but because they're straight (and don't pretend to be otherwise, e.g. yuribait), they and the self-insert have nothing to do with /u/. If I tried to start a discussion about a yaoi couple in a yuri manga, people would say I'm being off topic. It's the same for any straight couple.>>2487613Two Car has multiple episodes focusing on the several yuri couples in the show. It would be no exaggeration to say that 50+% the show's screen time is spent on the yuri pairings.
>>2487504That is a different girl, though I'm sure she considers that the best reward.
>>2487619You just have to go all out? I don't care for MC love interest or all that dandy shit. But i still wonder why i should go to /a/ to actually discuss show. This is what i'm talking about. >self-insert Goddammit. It's side character featured for ONE (1) episode. And i don't really care about this topic. If you don't get it.
>>2487628You can talk about the yuri couples on /u/. But go to /a/ to talk about the non-yuri couples.
>>2487629But where i go to talk about show? Besides /a/ almost cancerous as /u/ and at some cases even more.
>>2487634Learn to write first, then maybe you'll find a place that accepts you.
>>2487658My bad. I'm not native engrish speaker. That aside. I don't need acteptance. I need you to actually start using common sense.
>>2487451No, quite lower, Gochiusa is about the same level as New Game or Hanayamata.
>The domestic violence collage's much bigger than the happy families collage;_;
>>2487726It's almost like it's a shitpost that you should ignore.You forgot Vivio, Nanoha, and Fate in your collage. You know, the original happy family.
>>2485855why tho is not even good?
>>2487730There's no single image that can represent such perfection.
In celebration of Finland's 100th anniversary post Finnish lesbians.
>>2488110forgive me for not knowing the national dresses, but is that a Finlandssvenskar/Suomalaiset ship?
>>2488110>always portrayed as aggressive turbodykesI wish
>>2488148If you're asking if she's a Finnish-Swede, I don't think she's supposed to be. Since Ilmari Juutilainen (whose she's based on) was from North Karelia.
Is there any yuri manga about stinky NEET girls? Watamote doesn't count.
>Jyashin-chan Dropkick gets animatedI hear this is monstergirl yuri.
>>2488191But Tomoko's a student, she's not even a NEET. Well, if you mean antisocial characters like Tomoko, there's Tomodachi Login.
>>2488555It's mostly bad comedy and there not much love development. Or i should say almost none.
Is there any yuri manga themed around gothloli or cosplay?
>>2488555I dunno where you heard that from because while it's certainly monstergirl it sure isn't yuri. Jyashin is the most awful person imaginable anyway, she doesn't deserve a girlfriend.
>>2488685Doesn't seem to be het either, and that's good enough I guess.
>Definition of yuri: Relationships between girls>Yuri boom thanks to Yuru Yuri>More men readers thanks to Yuru Yuri>Current men/women readers ratio: 6:4Interview with Yuri Hime's new editor-in-chief here:https://ddnavi.com/interview/420470/a/
>>2488762>>Current men/women readers ratio: 6:4That's not 50:50
>>2488762>>Yuri boom thanks to Yuru Yuripraise be to Akarin!
>>2488762the only thing that matters is that they are a man with money or else they are not a good public.
>>2488802Did you just have a stroke?
>>2488762>There is a 40% chance any reply you get on /u/ is by a woman
>>2488762>Yuri is going to become solely cgdct and never actually have any real relationships so the male viewers can still "waifu" them
>>2488860In retrospect the image gives the opposite implication of what I meant by that post, I just wanted to post these 2 cute girls because noone is talking about them and its pretty good and gay too.
>>2487376Blonde's other two girlfriends were outside.
>>2488836Needs to be higher
>>2488860The large increase in male readers happened years ago, in the wake of YrYr getting an anime (in 2011). The current 6:4 ratio is after the gap has been slowly getting smaller.
>>2488860>male can still "waifu" them For what purpose?
>>2488832I think anon means that the most important thing of any demographic is that they spend money on the work themselves. How this relates to anything is anyone else's guess.
>>2488968just fuck off already
>>2488968that is already beyond big and just disgusting to look at.
We've all seen the Australian translations of yaoi and hetero h manga, but has there ever been any Australian translations of yuri h manga?
>>2488977there was this.
>>2488836It's growing 40%-70% of girls loving yuri titles you will see female yuri demographic grow in Japan next year.
>>2488606Yes, quite a few.
>>2488978>ywn frost cakes with your butt
>>2488978>428 kbToo bigAustralian yuri should be around 58kb in their best quality
>>2488989Is that the fujieda manga on cune?
>>2488978The only times I've ever heard an Australian use the word 'ho' was when they were pretending to be American or making really shit Christmas jokes.
>>2488988That's not the female percentage growing, it's the male percentage falling off after a surge.
>>2488865how high? 50?
Why do we care?
>>2489208200%every computer screen your post is displayed on should have two cute gay girls reading it while holding hands
>>2489181It may be both? I would imagine Citrus and NTR both draw new readers.
>>2488762Yuru Yuri is a fucking plague. Fuck men.
>>2489375>the series that is responsible for the spread of yuri is a plague Okay
>>2489377Spread of """yuri"'' you mean.
>>2489378Sure, tell yourself we wouldn't still be scraping the bottom of the barrel if it weren't for the likes of YrYr.Moe sells and men are stupid enough to throw away their money for it.
>>2489388And you're stupid enough to like it,
>>2489390Right, think of it like this You know how /u/ loves to hate Two Car l? It would be considered the yuri series of the season. You know, kind of like how Mai Hime was het first and foremost with scraps of side yuri? And how it and KnM were basically all /u/ had before YH?
>>2489390this, yeah.the number of real good yuri is still about the same.I have nothing to thank Yuru Yuri for, and the series itself will never actually go anywhere, either.
>>2489395>the number of real good yuri is still about the same.And it would stay confined to its niche, well away from sight, if it wasn't for YrYr.
>>2489397and absolutely nothing has changed, since real yuri is still niche.
>>2489398What do you consider "real yuri"? Because I bet you anything nothing other than Class-S shit would exist.And if that is what you consider "real yuri" then fuck off
>>2489402romantic or sexual relationships between women, as it should be.the droves of all girls casts, that cares deeply for their friends but never act on it, that yuru yuri spawned can go fuck itself.
>>2489405When starting something, you don't just start with the heavy stuff.Think of YrYr and the many other CGDCT series as stepping stones to 'harder' yuri.Without YrYr there would've been less people getting into yuri, or some other series would have taken its place and it might have not had the same impact YrYr did.Without YrYr, stuff like Blend S would be the standard CGDCT fare instead of an anomaly that should be avoided.
>>2489405Name one series. If it came out after 2008 it probably owes its existence to the success of Yuri Hime.
>>2489411oh, and now all the success of yuri hime is thanks to yuru yuri and everything yuri is a spawn of yuri hime?that's gold, really.>>2489409like Blend S is something that needs to be avoided, why? neither are yuri in the end.I find it funny so many people jump up to defend yuru yuri and praise it like some savior of yuri.the series is so interesting that people here doesn't even bother to make a thread out of it.probably because nothing ever happens in that garbage.it's yuri simply in name only.not even the spin-offs seems to have any material.the 20 pages doujin Namori did are more yuri than whatever has spawned from that trash.but I know there's no arguing with you people at this point, you are absolute certain that it's thank to yuru yuri we are here and nothing will convice you it wasn't a mistake at best.
>>2489394So, what you are saying is, the situation is as dire as before but now yuri fans are deluded enough to believe it improved.
>>2489415Funny how you can't even name a yuri series that pre-dates YrYr. Here I'll do it for you: Morinaga Milk's Girlfriends. And it's responsible for spawning the hundreds of "shy girl meets popular girl" and "b-but we're both girls!" series.
>>2489418congratulations, but do you think I didn't know of girlfriends?I didn't say a single series because the rest of your argument was stupid.
>>2489409>Without YrYr, stuff like Blend S would be the standard CGDCT fare instead of an anomaly that should be avoided.For fucks sake, the only difference between Blend S and standard CGDCT is male characters. That's fucking all there is. In case you dumb nigger haven't figured it out yet, yuri isn't another word for androphobia.
>>2489415>the series is so interesting that people here doesn't even bother to make a thread out of it.It has had a lot of threads, including recently.>it's yuri simply in name only.This is retarded.
>>2489422>lots of thread, including recentlythat died out because nothing to talk about.and then nobody makes another thread because there's nothing to talk about.it is retarded, I agree, next time they make something named like that it should atleast pretend that it plans to go somewhere with the relationships one day.
>>2489421No, the difference between Blend S and standard CGDCT is that the Blend S girls are straight.
>>2489421>male charactersAnd het.
I sometimes if this board likes yuri at all. I really think at least some of /u/'s current userbase would be better off with lesbian porn.
So we have yuri hipsters now?"Oh yeah, I liked yuri BEFORE it was popular. Everything they make now is shit"
>>2489424>>2489425>the difference between the two is that one maybe has a relationship while the other doesn't>that is a good thing for us for some reasonwhy?doujins?shipping?having a male or not doesn't stop either, retards will ship themselves with the girls if it doesn't have males, and for yuri fans that like the series will ship the girls regardless if it has guys or not.I always defended /u/ as a board that doesn't simply hate males, but I guess I was wrong about that as well.
>>2489375>Fuck menbut that's het!
>>2489426blame the tumblrtards who think yuri == lesbian porn.
>>2489427yeah, yuri hipsters being people who know the actual meaning of the word, it seems.
>>2489424You don't know the sexual orientation of standard CGDCT girls and that's makes you feel better. Okay. Still nothing to do with yuri.>>2489425Good thing this board is about yuri, not het. The point is that there's no yuri in either case.>>2489426The fuck is this>>2489429It's 6:4 that's it's gay*points to the temple*
>>2489426/a/ hates anime/v/ hates video games/u/ hates yuriYou know, the usual stuff where every board hates the thing they're about
REMOVE FAKE YURI
>>2489433>You don't knowNo, I know they're gay. Your standard is probably different to my standard, but the standard ones I watch are gay.
>>2489435/ck/ hating cooking would explain all the fast food threads.
>>2489432Nah, they're shitposters who can't even name a yuri series because they don't actually like Yuri:
>>2489438Fair enough. Still not yuri
Blend S? More like Bland S.
>>2489438>No, I know they are gay.right, kick reason to the curb and just say they're gay even if they never got into a relationship with the same sex.that's what yuri is all about those days, I guess.
>>2489435I didn't know /tg/ hated traditional games.
>>2489442Great man as he was, someone else would've been the first to go EVA and space walked if he didn't.
What is worse: people who don't like yuri or people who label everything as yuri, thus making sure that someone new looking for genuine yuri gets confused and put off?
>>2489447A lot of GCDCT shows have one or more maind character who show clear romantic and sexual interest in girls.
>>2489453yet the poor girl gets nowhere, I wonder why?either she isn't as interested as she pretends to be, or no one else in the series is actually into that stuff.
>>2489454>I wonder why?Probably because all of those manga are ongoing.
>>2489453So do plenty of het harems, to be fair.
>>2489458based harem series, we should start buying them so we can have more yuri!>>2489456>probably because all of those manga are ongoingwell now, that's a hard one, seems like we're on a stalemate, if no CGDCT manga ever ends.
>>2489456So, you don't know if the manga will be yuri until it ends. Good thing it's perfectly clear with anime adaptations then.
>>2489460>if no CGDCT manga ever ends.Plenty do. Like Majyo to Houki to Kurobuchi Megane.
>>2489461So you are saying girls like Ayaya are 100% straight? She will get a boyfriend, marry and have children?
Those light comedy manga with little romantic elements don't go anywhere even if they have male characters and het romance on it, particularly the 4koma kind.
>>2489463You will have to point out exactly where I said that or you're just talking shit and in that case why would anyone would listen to you?
>>2489462I think that's the most lovable example you could have chosen to mention.If I remember correctly the author didn't want to actually do a yuri story, he was going for something that was more of a emotional link between the characters.BUT everyone he knew misunderstood it as yuri, thanks to the new meaning of ""yuri"", and the author decided to just go with it, and well, differently to usual CGDCT, he delivered fast and hard.the author of that knows the meaning of yuri, the people who basically ended up convincing him to do yuri didn't.
>>2489466Of course I am talking shit. What else should I write to a person who thinks Ayaya is not gay.
>>2489454Or the author does not want to include a full romance into the story since it does not fit the fluffy SOL setting. But that does not mean that these girls are not gay.
>>2489469so, the author doesn't want to do yuri, but it's yuri because there's one girl possibly interested in girls only.I see, so that's how yuri works, one girl being interested in another while nothing happens, I finally see it now.
>>2489469If a girl doesn't explicitly identify as gay, how do you know that she is gay? Are you just assuming her sexuality based on your own preferences?
Hi /a/, boring day on your main board?
>>2489470The author does not want to do full romance. >>2489472I am assuming her sexuality based on her preferences.Now, can we stop talking shit about yuri and instead enjoy yuri?
>>2489473I mean, it would be pretty embarrassing if /a/ had to school /u/ about the genre of romance the board is dedicated to.
>>2489475Since when is yuri exclusively romance?
>>2489474>The author does not want to do full romance.I agree, the author doesn't want to do yuri.I'm glad we could have this conversation.Well, I would love to be able to bring a conversation about yuri, but I really can't see anything, maybe let's talk about magic of stella?
>>2489480it can be yuri if it has girl on girl sex as well, anything else and it is objectively wrong.
>>2489482You are not even trying now.
>>2489483the fact you legitimately believes it doesn't need to have girl on girl romance or sex to be yuri is what depresses me.that's the kind of people yuru yuri brought over, I guess.
>>2489486Now you are trying harder but you already blown it.
>>2489486>the series with a girl that has a girlfriend and several girls obviously lusting after other girls is not yuri
>>2489467>differently to usual CGDCTBecause most CGDCT are succesful and they keep their manga on-going, wait until they finish and they will deliver.Hell, I don't know why you're pretending Hina Logi doesn't exist, that show knew it was never gonna get a continuation so it decided to deliver because it was coming to an end, the same thing will do other CGDCT once they actually finish.
>>2489494>Hina LogiWhy go that far. Just ask how Dragon Maid exists. But I guess that also has absolutely no yuri elements.
>>2489495While Hina Logi was a romance, Dragon Maid is more like a romcom, Kobayashi acknowledges the love, but she still needs to reciprocate more.
>/u/ doesn't know what yuri is anymore
Please stop feeding the troll. It's not healthy for him or this thread.
>>2489496I would classify Dragon Maid as a SOL show first with romcom/yuri elements but that is really quite subjective.
Please mods, strike down any future general thread. Folks need to relearn why it was here in the first place.
>>2489494The vast majority of CGDCT manga are short, like 2-3 volumes.
>>2489507I'd rather they strike down retards who think it's ok to start back seat moderating as though their opinion is worth more than anyone else on the board. Anons should be allowed to discuss the meaning of yuri on the yuri board. People aren't always going to agree on everything. It should be ok to have a debate on a subject and disagree, as long as that discussion doesn't turn into pure shitposting. Yuri can mean many different things to many different people.
>>2489509>pure shitpostingThat's every discussion about what the meaning of yuri is. Those that can't accept that it's about lesbians and sapphic romance, sex, or subtext, try to act like they have a point when it really comes down to "I like them but I don't like the fact they wouldn't want me," despite the shows/material being a. fictional and b. 2d.
>>2489511>or subtextlove that added word there for some reason.
>>2489511>try to act like they have a point when it really comes down to "I like them but I don't like the fact they wouldn't want me,"What the fuck is this lunatic talking about?
YrYr is yuri, even if it doesn't appeal to your romance-centric ideal of what yuri is.
>>2489511>yuri is about lesbians and sapphic romance, sex, or subtextNo fucking shit. What is being discussed is if a relationship is yuri if there is no explicit confession of love or no expression of sexual desire. Is close or romantic friendship between girls still yuri?
>>2489524Even if there is no explicit confession it's still yuri, but what's the difference between sexual desire and romantic desire? Because plenty of girls show romantic interest in other girls even if they don't outright say they want to have sex with them.
>>2489530that anon had it wrong, what is the focus of the discussion is if the feeling is not reciprocated, is it still yuri if only one part had romantic/sexual interest.after all, a relationship has two persons involved, if only one is in for it, should it really be considered romantic?
>>2489423The last few yryr threads have actually been really good with some great discussion that's preferable to have occasionally then the endless generals the other threads get with the exact same shipwar arguments and image dumps as the infinite threads before them. There's also been no new chapters translated for a while which means no new material for EOPs to discuss.
>>2489530Funny thing, when a girl lusts after another girl in anime is seems more likely that she is going to be an unreciprocated joke character (e.g. Shirai Kuroko) but if it's pure, platonic love it's more likely to be real
>>2489546Something something societal atitudes towards sexuality. isn't it more or less the same with any lecherous characters?
>88 new postsI'm sure it's all interesting and reasonable discu... oh.
>>2489486It's kind of funny because plenty of people from the country where the genre and the word "Yuri" come from doesn't exactly think that way. That's why Class S is a thing in yuri. That's why stuff which is classified and sold and as yuri in Japan many times doesn't have explicit relationship. For the Japanese yuri has always been the bond/affection/relationship between the girls first, romantic/sexual vibe second.But now thank to tumblr if someone's not screaming "I'm gay" then apparently it's not yuri. Some of the materials here sure wouldn't be counted as "rezu" or "GL" for Jap, but sure would still be discussed by the Japanese artists and fans as yuri. That's why Futaribeya, a yuri series which has absolutely no explicit confession/no acknowledgement of a relationship is able to score so well with the yuri fans there.
>>2489423Because translation got halted so there's absolutely nothing to talk about you dimwit.In reality if YrYr comes to an end the ending would probably be something similar to Shinozaki. It's a tradition for gag series to end in that veil.
>>2489568and the translations died because it's absolutely a fucking bore.don't worry though, Shinozaki ended that way because atleast those two characters always had some kind of connection, yuru yuri is just all over the place.I'll be here to laugh at you people who expected something out of it when it finally ends.Namori is a disgrace.
>>2489570Yuru yuri has some pretty final couples already.
>>2489566>That's why Class S isStopped reading right here
>>2489570Who hurt you?
>>2489566>That's why Futaribeya, a yuri series which has absolutely no explicit confession/no acknowledgement of a relationship is able to score so well with the yuri fans there.The main couple aren't actually lovers, but there is explicitly a couple who started dating, also a character who has had sex with women and keeps asking her female best friend to date her.
>>2489570>those two characters always had some kind of connectionIt was absolutely one-sided when you read it though, you never actually see any sign of reciprocation from the love interest following the narration of the protagonist until the very moment the series ended. The series also got absolutely shitted on when it was running for the lack of development too and the appearance of the side characters too, something which is inherently not wrong considering the type of manga it is. But now it's over the narrative suddenly changed.The characters in YrYr never got to the same level of delusion as Shinozaki, but at least you can actually see reciprocation from both sides in some pairs.
>>2489426I group /u/ into 4 groups>Likes cgdct and doesn't want men anywhere near their waifus. Yuri is used simply to keep the characters "pure">Wants to see cute girls have cute girlfriends and do cute relationship things>Wants to watch girls suffer and have lots of lesbian angst for realism>Just wants to get off to lesbian pornHonestly only one I don't like is the first group. At least the porn people and angst people still want legitimate lesbians.
>>2489576>The main couple aren't actually lovers, but there is explicitly a couple who started dating, also a character who has had sex with women and keeps asking her female best friend to date her.You know they only appear 40 chapters into the story right. It's kinda hard to say Futaribeya's yuri merit is coming from them considering it only has like 46 chapters. Yuri fans simply like the two MC's relationship and consider it enough even thought they are not "lovers" yet.
>>2489510>bitemarksdo you have any more nee-sama?This is my thing. but i don't have much for it.
>>2489582I think those groups are just you mostly just horribly misunderstanding what other people think.
>>2489588nope, I'd say she's got it pretty much perfect.
>>2489588Naturally its not literally 100%But looking at how people talk about yuri and certain series that's how i can easily group them. And they tend to act in similar ways.
>>2489582Second group is the best. We need to wear colors, think of identifying signs and hand gestures and fight for territory with the remaining fools.
>>2489570>Namori is a disgrace.Enough! You've gone too far, troll.
>>2489593Not really.The first group barely exist in /u/, they are mostly /a/ users who are ok with yuri but never bother enough to actively seek or check out yuri. They populate threads like GochiUsa or Kinmoza, or even LWA over there, just have a look and see for yourself. Most /u/sers are here simply because they want to read stuff with girls only/stuff involved girls, and not necessarily because they want to waifu them. There's distinct difference between the two.
>>2489566I mean, who really gives a fuck about what japan thinks and does?they may have originated the idea, but if they're gonna use it wrong then they should be called out on it.I mean, look at yaoi, you don't have series that have lots of fujo backup being called a yaoi show since there's no canon relationships.things like Osomatsu, Tiger & bunny, mob psycho, one punch man, are filled with yaoi fan art and fujos, but you wouldn't hear a soul ever saying those are yaoi series, not even the fujos themselves.
>>2489582I like the subtle implication that no one from the latter three groups could like cgdct
>>2489603yaoi, japanese connotation-wise, tends to be porn without plot to them. so it explains why fujos ship in addition to having fucking mountains more content than we have.
>>2489604the whole complaint about cgdct is that they are never about relationships and just one sided things so yeah, it does make sense.
>>2489602>first group barely exists on /u/They're all over the place.They're a bit closer to the /u/ level than typical /a/fags, but they're still not interested in the actual relationship or girls getting together. Its just yuri provides a safe level of subtext that girls don't get ruined and its just cute girls being cute with each other, not cute girls being gay with each other.You see it a lot with subtext arguments or threads where people are posting only "safe' images.>>2489604Its not that there can't be some overlap, but its about your overall goals and intentions on /u/ and toward yuri in general.For example someone wanting to just see cute relationships can settle for heavy subtext cgdct because they can make it fit and fantasize about the actual relationship.an angst or pornfag could watch it too and enjoy it, but it doesn't mean that's what they're into yuri for.
>>2489605>japanese connotation-wisehow come yuri and yaoi should just be two different sides of being gay, yet you're trying to tell me japan actually has complete different meanings to them?japan just shouldn't be allowed on charge of words, ever, they just fuck everything up, that's absolutely moronic, jesus christ.
>>2489606>>2489610So it's literally just, "stop liking what I don't like!". I enjoy everything from stupid comedy like YrYr to cute and fluffy relationship yuri to angsty lezu manga, and I don't mind getting off to straight up porn on occasion. So fuck your arbitrary groups. You've grouped types of yuri, not types of yuri fans.
>>2489615I forgot to include the overly defensive anon who feels the need to compensate for something.I apologize.
>>2489615just because you think of yourself on all groups, you think they don't exist?
>>2489603>I mean, who really gives a fuck about what japan thinks and does?Because it's where the genre originates from? Because they are the major content producer, so the stuff we got from them would of course be influenced by their opinions?
>>2489617Yes. I don't think I'm part of any "group" here on /u/, do you think you are?
>>2489614>Japan shouldn't be allowed to define a genre it created.
>>2489614It makes more sense when you actually understand the meaning of the words and the implications they care.yaoi inherently has a more sexual meaning. it doesn't mean gay men and gay women.
>>2489621Everyone is part of a group anon, its basic sociology.Do you honestly have no preference for stories? NTRtrap and citrus are equally appealing as girlfriends and equally appealing as kirimosa?
>>2489614>tell me japan actually has complete different meanings to them?This just in: Anon still doesn't realize and understand that the western half of the net uplifted nip words that easily described something without looking deeper into their meaning.
>>2489614>japan just shouldn't be allowed on charge of words, ever, they just fuck everything up, that's absolutely moronic, jesus christ.Capitalize your fucking sentences first before complaining about an entire nation's usage of their own language.
>>2489626Not that anon, but you're making it clear that your way of thinking is based on you being completely fucking stupid.
>>2489630*Gachi, fuck my lack of sleep.
>>2489631>says the anon who's overcompensating because they need to feel specialChrist you're so obvious.
>>2489626Girl Friends > Citrus > NTRI've never heard of kirimosa. If you mean KinMoza then I think it's trash, far below YrYr and not even worth mentioning alongside the three above.And you can slice any population into any number of arbitrary groups, doesn't mean it's going to be accurate, or that any one has to agree with you that they belong to those groups.
>>2489602>KinmozaPlease don't insult Kinmoza threads, and no, Karen meme threads aren't Kinmoza threads.>>2489582>>2489590The first group doesn't exist at all, waifushitters are absolute cancer and they don't belong on /u/>>2489610> just cute girls being cute with each other, not cute girls being gay with each otherNow those are fighting words, the number of girls just being cute is considerably lower than the girls being gay, the girls not being gay in those shows are actually a minority.
>>2489634Kinmoza is superior to everything in your post except probably Girl Friends. It doesn't have shitty drama nor girls jumping around ships like retards.
>>2489624Media based on gay men is split into two genres in Japan. Yaoi and bara. Yaoi is aimed at the shoujo and josei demographics, where as bara is intended for gay men. In yuri there isn't this split between the male and female demographics. A seinen series is just as much yuri as a shoujo one.
>>2489637>probably Girl Friends>prbablyFuck you>It doesn't have shitty drama nor girls jumping around ships like retards.It also doesn't have any humor, any personality, or even a sliver of artistic merit. It is just an all-around snoozefest.I will take the trainwreck that is NTR over kinmoza any day.
>>2489642Absolutely shit taste, kindly please fuck off.
>>2489638I always gathered Bara was about a specific body type (buff men similar to bears) while yaoi was a more catch all term?
>>2489643Gladly, I'm not about to spend an evening alongside people who think kinmoza is superior to actual yuri.
>>2489644it's always been taken this way, that anon is pretty much just grabbing all that out of his ass since most people don't know the origins of the genres and he's taking the chance to be a smart ass.
>>2489644It is kind of that way in english speaking communities but Bara was intended to be for gay men by gay men. The other thing to keep in mind, is that what Japan considers homoerotic for guys is different than in the west. The more masculine you are in Japan the more they think you're gay, lookwise. Hence why it became a bit of the bear genre because of the devotion to masculinity in japanese art compared to standard yaoi art that includes a bunch of pretty boy bishies made to draw in (japanese) women.I kind of wish, this cultural mindset also applied to lesbian media, so that there could be a surge in bifauxnens/prince types and the yuri equivalent to Bara would be like super femme older women getting together but that wasn't meant to be.
>>2489645NTR might be yuri, but that doesn't save it from the fact that it's a steaming pile of shit.
>>2489648Actually it does kiddo. Even shitty yuri is redeemed in the eyes of the goddess.
>>2489644Bara is made by gay dude for gay dude.Yaoi/BL is made by woman for woman. The word Yuri was created around the same time as Bara, but the genre itself never materialized or gained momentum until Heisei. And the ironic thing is the genre at that time was defined by the platonic relationship of class S, only much later that it broadens to include what is considered "Gachi Yuri" today.
Hardly anyone uses the terms yaoi and bara anymore, they have fallen out of use in recent years compared to BL.Part of the reason is that 'yaoi' stands for "yama nashi, ochi nashi, imi nashi" - "no climax, no denouement, no meaning (i.e. pointless fucking without story)", which doesn't reflect the genre anymore.
Why are we talking about Yaoi again?
>>2489652>yaoi's a japanese acronymThank you for this.>>2489653Anon was having a fit about japanese words and yaoi, compared to it's sister genre, has a more clearly segmented history when it comes to it's various genre titles.
>>2489653because people brought the japanese meaning of yuri which is completely different to the one the western public uses.
>>2489647Yeah figured that was the case.But Bara is still used to apply to the non-male oriented fans if it appears. Its just not the typical genre the fujos go for.But my yaoi knowledge is lacking, only went through a short phase of that before hitting yuri. And don't go back nearly as much as I should just to keep up to date on this stuff.>>2489636>most cgdct are gaymost are not, most are subtextual with some being a bit more obvious than others but never actually hitting "literal gay" territory.yys is probably one of the few I would say is gay without doubt. koaku no pandora is barely cgdct and as it puts it itself, a story about girl meets girl.things like mountaineering I haven't watched but from what I can see its hardly gay at all and 99% yuri goggles. Most cgdct fall in this territory. The main series for gup for example, is heavily shipped, but the girls are noted to be straight with a few exceptions. The side stories get a bit more gay, but they're not exactly canon either. Ribbon warrior is probably the exception here. But things like new game, while heavily shippable never actually cross into any gay territory.And its perfectly fine to like these things on their own, but if you are into yuri for these type stories you aren't here for the relationships, you're here for cute girls in non-relationships.
>>2489655>because people brought the japanese meaning of yuriNo, it's not. You are pulling this out of your ass. If you actually followed Japanese fans and artists on Twitter you would know they use 百合 interchangeably with GL, and use both in pretty much the same way Western fans of Japanese content do.
>>2489657Its similar to the use of what we use it as a catch all term for everything with multiple girls being near each other.But the anon specifically brought up yaoi in comparison to yuri and complained they aren't used similarly. Because while yaoi involves gay men it does not mean gay men. And while yuri is often used for gay girls, it does not actually mean gay girls.
>>2489650>And the ironic thing is the genre at that time was defined by the platonic relationship of class S, Where have you got that idea? It was used as a term for female readers of Barazoku (a gay magazine), became a euphemism for lesbians, then got spread by the title of a porn film.
>>2489642>It also doesn't have any humor, any personality, or even a sliver of artistic merit. It is just an all-around snoozefest.You're saying this while defending NTR.
>>2489659Nobody uses yaoi anymore except English-speakers, to whom it means "gay men having sex, or who at least want to have sex." Japanese speakers just use BL which is the male equivalent to 百合 and GL.
>>2489649Good yuri > shitty yuri, so Kinmoza is better.
>>2489657>use both in pretty much the same way Western fans of JapaneseWhich way are you talking about again? Because if we are talking about how many of the anons defining the genre here then there is no way stuff like Futaribeya, Futari Monologue, Shouraiteki ni Shinde kure, Kimi wo Nakasetai... would be considered as yuri and yet here they are being sold as such. The truth is even Western fans don't have an unanimous agreement about the usage of the word, /a/ or /u/.
>>2489660I mean the state of the genre during Showa/early Heisei.
>143 new postsholy macaroons, please >>>/a/
>>2489626>Do you honestly have no preference for stories?Preference is a privilege of these with choice, with ~10 vague yuri show per year and dozen of manga that get updates once in a while I'm starving for anything new, sure I would love another Majo to houki but if you give me another ntr I will gladly accept it and thank you for it unless it's korean garbage I can't fucking stand these long pages with barely anything on them.
>>2489670>macaroonsIt's -macarons- you dense motherfucker.
>>2489670do we really need to have someone whining about people discussing things every once in a while?is your brain too small? you can't deal with people talking about things?
>>2489671If you can read Japanese, you can buy Galette/Yuri Hime, then browse ComicWalker. Lots of stuff to read actually. You can also check out yuri blog like yurinavi to see the potential release. There's also this hentai mag which's been bundling yuri into but I'm fucking broke so no fucking way I'm buying it for 100 pages of yuri.
I posted this in the other thread without realizing it was over bump limit and sinking, but these threads should be limited to discussing actual content, not arguing over definitions and trying to declare what other people are and aren't allowed to talk about.Please try to steer these threads back towards discussing specific, existing content. In the past they were basically collections of screenshots from anime without enough material to warrant a separate thread, and helped facilitate discussion of new releases/airing shows that might be of minor interest, or even just recently uploaded fanart that doesn't fit elsewhere. But they've been limping along with these repetitive arguments for a long time now, generating a lot of frivolous reports, and serving little purpose. Let's try to give them back a purpose besides debates that are better suited to /a/. If there is a truly /u/-relevant subject you want to debate, make your own thread for it.As always, if you don't think a post, show, or subject doesn't belong here, report and hide it. If you just don't like it, just ignore it.Oh, and maybe leave the "Pretty much anything that doesn't have or need its own thread" bullet point out of the next OP.
>>2489679>NicoMakiGreat taste mod.
>>2489679>If you just don't like it, just ignore it.On 4chan? Good luck!
>>2489679It would be nice to have a reason to actually check the catalog once in a while the way I do for any other board instead of just sitting in the general threads as if it was an anonymous IRC chat.
>>2489181It's still a good more women are reading more yuri hime stuff. hetfags and yaoifags are about to have rude awakening next year. The fanbase wars just went up a whole another new level.
>>2489790Hey, kill yourself.
>>2489790It's great that you're using the correct naming scheme of "General Yuri Discussion", but you need to stop trying to stir up shit.
>>2489790>page fucking twoYou're this fucking desperate to bait ACK because someone made a new Madoka thread first.
>>2489794>>2489848It's always the same person. Notice how he misspells "new thread" every time.
>>2489657>the same way Western fans of Japanese content doSome western fans have some weird and confusing systems that I don't understand.Baka-updates has separate "yuri" and "girls love" tags, and many manga have only one but not the other.I'm still not sure what's up with that
>>2489922don't forget the ever perfect shoujo ai tag

This manga,Mida love, is another genderswap but here the mc is a succubus who naturally had two gender and just discovery this recently ( her parent is also succubus who can do the same)had a bit of yuri and in the chapter 11 she had threesome with her childhood friend and her mom, wtf?had het kisses so keep this chapter for now
https://natalie.mu/comic/news/261205Liz and the Blue Bird movie coming out soon from the guys who did A Silent Voice. Looks promising, could it be euphonium without the yuribait?
>>2495237That IS Euphonium, is the history about Nozomi and Mizori in they previous school
>>2495322oh sorry. Are they season 2 characters? I had only seen season 1 and haven’t had the free time to catch up.
