Anime Question

Why do you like Yuri?(Yuri fans only)

Me personally i do not like it.(lol the irony) but i am wondering why the people who like it like? is it the obvious "it's hot to see girls playing with each other" or some other reason...that may have a lot of meaning to it.

also do you think more guys like yuri or is there a big number of *cough* erm straight girls who like it?

please i want real answers
not 'OMG YURI IS SO HOT' or 'OMG IT'S SO GROSS'
~Thanks

Well you see, why i don't like it, what i think about it(normal straight girl answer) is because i am a straight girl and i feel that if i watch it i will become into girls...which is the stupidist response...ever but thats why.

I'm kind of a feminist I guess and that's why I'm so attracted to it. I don't hate men or anything but I don't really get emotionally attached to men like that very easily. I think it's more graceful in the matter at least to me. A lot of yuri has a more tragic plotline to it and it's very sweet yet heartbreaking. There are certain obstacles yuri couples go through that straight couples don't have to face. Usually if they do go through the same thing it's a Romeo and Juliet deal which is very overused in my opinion. The perfect example of a sweet yet heartbreaking show would be either Kannazuki no Miko or especially Ga-Rei: Zero which the show's entire theme is "Will you kill someone you love, because of love?" Ga-Rei: Zero isn't really a true yuri it's more hidden in subtext and read between the lines sort of thing. (Yomi's "love interest" is a boy for example). A truly beautiful plot I must say!

Or perhaps a much lighter plot with Sasameki Koto. Granted the plot of hiding your feelings from your best friend because you don't want to lose them is cliche but the way it plays out is truly amazing. Sasameki Koto literally means Whispered Words so the story is portrayed that without saying a single word Sumika and Kazama confess their feelings to one another. But it also has plenty of humor to keep you entertained throughout it all.

I could go on forever! But my point is that I love the plotlines and the secret meanings that a Yuri has that a straight couple doesn't. I'm not saying straight romances can't be beautiful but I prefer to be attached to both partners in the relationship and due to my difficulty in becoming attached to males I end up only being attached to half of the romance. Which isn't very fun, right?

As you can see Yuri is something I'm VERY passionate about. ^^" So that's why I like Yuri. <3 And am I straight? No. Am I Bisexual? No. =] You can figure it out from there right?

Well, I think it's interesting to see things mixed up a bit. Boy X Girl is cool and all, but it gets boring after a while.

I like yuri because it's a real turn on to see two girls together plus alot of the storylines are quite interesting. If the story line wasn't a good one I seriously doubt I'd even watch or read it.

Well, personally I find yuri to be... interesting, I guess.
I get really bored with the usual, "Boy meets girl blah blah" plot. Usually in yuri, there is more excitement since it is unorthodox, and a bit more original.

Oh, and, I'm a straight girl who likes yuri.
Your mind = blown?

Yuri doesn't have all the hysterical OTP battles like yaoi. It's also less perverted than yaoi, and also much more better. [Also, almost every yaoi fan I have seen on the net are homophobes, and that makes me literally scratch my hands in fury. HARD, as well.]

Also, I am homosexual/lesbian as well, so I am pretty happy if there is any yuri in a manga/anime I have noticed. Especially if it is lesbian vampires as well, dayum~. *Perverted sense ON*

I also think that yuri isn't really that big. The genre itself has gotten quite many fans quite lately, but I rarely see anything about it on the net, and that makes me a bit annoyed. Mainly because I hate yaoi, which has a massive, yet braindumb cult following.

There are very few people out there (such as me) who realy feel like they understand it... From a normal mans standpoint I don't like Yaoi (idk why) but to most men it's just plain cute :/
