    Default Yuri Fans! I need recommendations

    So I've recently started to get really into yuri. I'm aware of some of the more well-known titles out there - Strawberry Panic!, Kashimashi, Revolutionary Girl Utena, etc. - but I would like to find more.

    Preferably ones that deal with characters who are older than high school. (Note: I'm NOT interested in porn, however - I just want something I can relate to better than high-school stuff.) It seems like there's plenty of yaoi out there involving adults, but almost no yuri - at least, hardly any that I've heard of. I know that it's partly because of Japanese cultural attitudes re: female homosexuality, but there has to be at least some. In fact, I know there is, but I just don't know any titles! Do you?

    Thanks!

    That's a pretty exhaustive list, although some of those leave it more up to subtext (e.g. Madoka) or the yuri couple isn't the main focus (e.g. Sailor Moon).

    Mother Maria is Watching Us is pretty good. I think that was the title, but you can also try by finding Mari-Mitte. It's high school stuff, though...

    Try Kashimashi, I found it to be a pretty good Yuri triangle between three girls, although one of them used to be a guy who was transformed into a girl. Either way be sure to watch/disregard the OVA if you find that the main character did not end up with the girl you liked.

    Thanks a lot! I've actually read the entire Kashimashi manga (and loved it) but the anime is definitely on my to-watch list.

    If it helps the anime takes a pretty different route than the manga, and has a different ending, one for each pairing ( Which is thankful because fans were screaming for blood with the original )

    Yeah, I can see how they would, although I wasn't particularly invested in either ship - I just wanted to see Hazumu end up with one of them and everybody end up happy.

    (Two endings is actually a pretty clever way to deal with shippers.)
