->''"Yuri is a blessed thing. The refined and subtle actions, the warmth, of a world where only girls reside...yet also the pain of interpersonal politics and selfish intrigue. And finally, those strong emotional bonds before which no hardship is an insurmountable obstacle. Verily, a finely-honed mental and spiritual realm for transcending the crude conceptions of the male mind!"''
-->-- '''Hanadera Keisuke''', ''Yuri Danshi''

Yuri, the Japanese word for "lily", refers to a {{genre}} in Japanese media based on [[QueerRomance sapphic romance]]. Works often focus either on romantic or sexual feelings, but some have both. Fans will sometimes use the term ''shoujo-ai'' ("girl's love") as a way to identify less explicit works that focus on romance and/or emotions between the characters. Note however that in Japan, ''shoujo-ai'' refers to [[{{Lolicon}} liking little girls]].

Yuri is a genre (or a collection of overlapping genres) distinguished by tropes and stereotypes. The term "yuri" is sufficiently strongly associated with those tropes and stereotypes that some Japanese lesbian manga fans use a different term, like "bian" (short for lesbian), "Onna x Onna" ("women x women"), or "Onna-doushi" ("women together") for works which are actually by/for lesbian women. Yuri is commonly an idealized and unrealistic portrayal of lesbian relationships, and is not representative of actual LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, the plus sign standing for "et cetera") culture and experiences, owing in part to its high {{Fluff}} content.

In Japan, yuri is also known as "Girls' Love" ([[GratuitousEnglish in English]]), or GL, a term created in common with the male version, "[[YaoiGenre Boys' Love]]" or BL.

See this [[http://okazu.yuricon.com/2008/03/02/okazu-glossary-of-terms/ short glossary of yuri terms]], as well as Matt Thorn's [[http://www.matt-thorn.com/shoujo_manga/jaws/index.php "What Japanese Girls Do With Manga, and Why"]] essay and the Wikipedia's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuri_(genre) "Yuri Genre"]] page, for a bit more context.

There are a few different types of yuri, depending in part on the target audience:

* Yuri for men, "{{seinen}} yuri", tends to emphasize sweetness, femininity, girlishness, [[TheIngenue innocence, purity]], and {{Moe}} generally. It usually has a very romanticized view of what it's like to be a teenage girl. This is in contrast to the standard GirlOnGirlIsHot scenarios (lustful women making out with each other for the viewer's delectation, often mixed with heterosexual content in {{fanservice}}-driven shows) which are usually not considered yuri. Men's yuri typically fetishizes femininity and youthfulness and rarely focuses on long-standing relationships or adult characters, much less LGBTQ culture and social issues.
* Yuri for girls, "{{shoujo}} yuri", may also be hyperfeminine and "pure" but may feature some degree of gender-bending or cross-dressing, with the {{bifauxnen}} in a more traditionally male role. In either case, it's usually focused on fantasies of female solidarity, idealized femininity and gender transgression, not with lesbian identity, culture or actual life in Japan. [[http://www.japanesestudies.org.uk/articles/2010/Nagaike.html Here's]] an academic essay that discusses the history and looks at some modern stories (warning: one of the images near the end is {{NSFW}}).
* Yuri for adult women, "{{josei}} yuri", is usually less stereotyped and fairly realistic, like most fiction aimed at adults. Yuri for lesbians is the most likely to be realistic, and to deal with LGBTQ culture and social issues, but is a very small portion of all yuri produced. As previously noted, some readers use a separate term for "yuri by/for lesbians" to distinguish it from the more common types.
* "Background yuri" is a new type of yuri gaining a foothold in Japan. These mangas portray female protagonists (usually {{Action Girl}}s) in lasting lesbian relationships, without actually being ''about'' these relationships. Though this element has the same status that a RomanceArc in non-romantic fiction does, such mangas are classified as yuri in addition to whatever genres they primarily belong to.

A disproportionate amount of yuri stories have, in the past, [[BuryYourGays ended tragically]] or [[HideYourLesbians inconclusively]], but this is changing as more fictional couples are allowed to have happy, committed, and {{canon}} endings.

In yuri, you'll most likely find relationships which play on TomboyAndGirlyGirl or SempaiKouhai dynamics. The first usually emulates a heterosexual couple, while the latter emphasizes the difference in maturity between the girls. TeacherStudentRomance is also found, but less commonly than the other two.

Note that entry is for the genre. Couple-specific examples should only be listed below if they're the focus of the series. For yuri-style couples (and unrequited crushes) in other genres, see TokenYuriGirls. Note also that RomanticTwoGirlFriendship (that is, when the yuri relationship doesn't last and the girls involved end up with boys) is a completely different trope. Also see: SlashFic, EveryoneIsGay, and SchoolgirlLesbians.

The [[DistaffCounterpart Spear Counterpart]] of this genre are {{Yaoi}} (the explicit version of BL) or Shounen-ai/Shonen-ai (the PG-13 version) both targeted towards women, and the BaraGenre, which is targeted towards gay men.

* The manga ''Manga/{{Claudine}}'', written by Manga/OniisamaE's author Creator/RiyokoIkeda, is often wrongly classified as Yuri. However, this is a mistake. The main character, Claudine de Montesse, is {{Transsexual}}. He is female-bodied but identifies as a man, and searches for female love interests. He is referred as a man such by other characters. His UnluckyChildhoodFriend Rosemarie, for example, describes him as "a true man, given a woman's body". Therefore, it'd be technically incorrect to classify ''this'' particular manga as yuri. Although homosexuality and transsexuality are both LGBTQ issues, they are different and, whilst they ''can'' overlap, it's not always the case.
