"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

I'm not entirely sure why I watch yuri anime now and then, but it definitely isn't the reason mentioned above. They're rarely about lesbians going at it and usually focus on the emotional baggage... err "aspects" instead. That's fine though. Male viewers can watch yuri anime in hopes of understanding the female species better and becoming that sensitive guy they all like. (Okay, maybe not.) For me, I think I watch this genre to try and figure out exactly what it is girls see in this stuff. I often enjoy it as well, so that doesn't hurt either.

Because yuri...
Is the pinnacle of culture.

It is a time when the world is frequently ravaged by huge natural disasters. A time when members of the general public in technologically-advanced nations began to acquire cyborgs and autonomous robots. In this era, as larger nations engage in cutthroat competition for technology and resources, the gulf between the rich and poor widens. And in this time... something else happens that has nothing to do with any of that. A story begins in which GIRL MEETS GIRL.

When I saw episode 8, I thought "So this is what a yuri work would be". It's different yuri than what men fantasize.
