* ''Anime/SakuraTrick'': While it sounds fine on paper, the show is overall rather mediocre due to how (like with ICE) forced the Yuri is as the kissing happens way too often to be satisfying. Not helped by so and so characters and a bland ClicheStorm.

The first thing to do before starting on a manga concept is to determine your personal preference in tone and mood in yuri. In the wake of the classical "WriteWhatYouKnow" maxim, the equally important "Write What You Like" tends to be forgotten. In fact, the number of successful male writers of lesbian fiction can be seen as a testament of the precedence of WWYL before WWYK (and, accidentally, of how much the YuriGenre has to do with lesbian relationships in RealLife). So, writing in the tone and mood of yuri that you prefer to read yourself is the best starting point.

* GenderBender. The original thematic core of classic (shoujo) yuri was, surprisingly to some, not lesbianism as such, but rather the exploration of alternate gender identities. In its home country, the genre was (and remains) an important form of {{Escapism}} for young women to escape the [[YamatoNadeshiko restrictive social norms]] placed upon them almost from birth.

* ''Manga/LoveGeneXX'' may appear like a weird yaoi-yuri hybrid at first, but is actually an excellent depiction of the essentially genderless ''shoujo'' characters who were at the core of the classic yuri genre.
