Best Yuri Anime On Netflix Right Now

6 Best Yuri Anime On Netflix Right Now – Netflix now has a plethora of alternatives for those interested in action, sci-fi, or even shounen anime. Other popular anime genres, such as Shoujo and Ecchi, have received a slew of updates on Netflix recently. “Yuri” is one sub-genre that has yet to catch up with the others. This genre, often known as Shoujo-Ai, concentrates on the characters’ lesbian relationships. There are many famous Yuri anime series that primarily focus on the romantic connections of their female characters. However, just a few of these anime are available on the streaming service. With that said, here’s a list of the best Yuri anime accessible on Netflix right now:

6. Kakegurui (2017)

Hyakkou Private Academy is unlike any other Japanese school. Its unconventional techniques of educating students for the real world are so popular that practically all youngsters from wealthy families aspire to gain admission to the top institute. But what really sets this place apart is how it incorporates gambling into every student’s coursework. While everyone else at school is learning about gambling and money manipulation in order to gain excellent grades, Yumeko Janani, a new transfer student, is excited about it. She is obsessed with gambling to the point where it turns her on sexually.

‘Kakegurui’ is recognized for having fanservice that matches its passionate tone wonderfully, and while it may not be overt about it, the anime also hints to lesbian relationships. Almost all of the primary gambling characters are female, and even the few male ones are bad at it. While the show does not depict any romantic interactions between the male and female characters, it does depict some sexual tension amongst the female characters. Yumeko, the heroine, inspires one female character to touch herself.

Bleach (2004 – 2012)

‘Bleach’ is not your traditional yuri show, and it scarcely requires an introduction because it is widely regarded as one of the best anime ever produced, but it does have yuri aspects. Chizuru Honsho is a lesbian character in the series who has a strong crush on Orihime. She is physically drawn to her and isn’t afraid to show her sentiments. Their fun sexual activity lasts for several episodes. Despite the fact that Orihime resists his approaches, Chizuru cannot stop pursuing her. If you want to see their adorable relationship, you can watch all of the episodes here.

4. Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995-)

‘Neon Genesis Evangelion,’ which takes place in 2015, depicts a world taken over by Angels. Humanity’s last hope is a special group known as the Nerv, which has created huge robots known as Evangelions capable of battling these angels. What follows is the story of Shinji Ikari, a 14-year-old child who later proves to be one of the greatest Nerv pilots of all time, and who, in one way or another, bears the entire fate of humanity on his shoulders.

‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ is not your average Yuri. However, at a period when LGBTQ depictions were nearly non-existent in almost any form of media, its portrayal of a queer love had a significant influence. This is one of the reasons why the Netflix English Dub of the anime was heavily criticized, as it appeared to have eliminated the two characters’ LGBT subtext. As innovative as this anime has become, its Netflix censorship remains a major source of concern for many. Many gay fans continue to express their displeasure with Netflix’s attempt to modify the entire context of the characters’ inte

3. Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works (2014-)

‘Fate’ is a massive franchise centered on Holy Grail Wars, in which powerful mages compete for control of the magical Holy Grail. The fifth Holy Grail War is covered in ‘Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works,’ with Rin Toosuka, the protagonist, aiming to win the war with his servant Archer. But things don’t go as planned when one of his classmates, Emiya, summons his own servant and joins the conflict. The two create a temporary alliance to combat the other powerful wizards involved in the war, but there can only be one winner in the end.

‘Unlimited Blade Works,’ like ‘Fairy Tail,’ features a good amount of fanservice and romance, but none of it is specifically aimed at lesbian relationships. However, there is one scene in which Rin attempts to have sex with both Shirou and Saber while saying that they must have “physical contact” as a pre-game ritual. While the anime still holds back with this sequence, the original visual novel depicts it rather graphically.

2. Little Witch Academia (2017)

On the surface, ‘Little Witch Academia’ appears to be a standard “cute magical girl” anime aimed primarily at children. But it’s a lot of fun, and it has a wonderfully retro animation style that almost everyone will appreciate. It has many parallels with the world-building of the ‘Harry Potter’ series. Unlike ‘Harry Potter,’ however, each episode has its own story with no significant adversaries of any type.

It is implied in the eighth episode that one of the main female characters, Sucy, has a crush on her friend Akko. Many fans have begun to discuss this on anime message boards, and some have even produced their own versions of fan art based on it. Unfortunately, the anime never delves too further into this, but it is unmistakably Studio Trigger’s technique of luring Yuri lovers.

1. Devilman Crybaby (2018)

 

‘Devilman Crybaby’ is one of Netflix’s most recent original titles. The anime has achieved a lot of popularity in a relatively short period of time, not only because of its intriguing concept, but also because of its depiction of extreme violence and nudity. The show revolves around two male characters, one of whom is a human with the powerful exterior of a devil, dubbed the “Devilman Crybaby.”

Although there are no clear lesbian partnerships in this show, it made the list due to its representation of a prospective LGBT relationship between the two main characters. And if you have a good memory, you might remember Jun Lan, a supporting character who was in a lesbian relationship with the swimming teacher, Aoi Kurosaki. She even manages to become a Devilman near the end of Season 1, thus she may play a larger role in the following season. Only time will tell if the anime will delve deeper into her sexuality
