I had an idea about that, and I've got the motivation to see it through.  8) (And I would have had a thread earlier if I didn't have work to go to. XD)  But like all big things, it would have to start small, so we shouldn't expect Yuri to become the force that Yaoi is at Fanimecon in the first shot.

First things first - what form should Yuri come in?  Dealer's Room? Video Programming?  Panels?  Let's drop some ideas here.  :o

Is yuri the exact opposite of Yaoi? Wikipedia says nothing,so would you guys please?
Title: Yuri
Post by: Leishu on May 31, 2006, 12:04:35 PM
Hmmm

Well we have to keep in mind that the Yaoi stuff is backed by Yaoi-con. There was once a Yuricon but it was very, very shortlived. Yaoi also has the advantage of those of us who are bishies being willing to do the live programming portion of it. It may be a little harder to find Yuri girls.

Yuri is lesbian

Well I would LOVE to see some Yuriness! Even if there's only one panel on it...it'd be nice to have ^^;

I went one night, but then was dragged off to randomly play Duck-Duck-Goose.  :lol: And isn't Girl's High a comedy?  I didn't get to see that (it was on at 11pm) because some stuff that happened after Masquerade (namely, leading a friend in a Menchi Dog costume back to the hotel).  But if it was, that's cool - it's just hard to tell when Yaoi has it's own block (several of them) but most people can't spot Yuri by title alone.  :wink:

Post by: mDuo13 on May 31, 2006, 03:43:24 PM
I definitely met a couple girls at the con who weren't opposed to yuri.

I'd settle for just a shoujo-ai / yuri programming block. There are a lot of shows with yuri undertones or overtones - My-HiME (http://mduo13.no-ip.org/gfx/shoujoai/my-hime.jpg) & OTOME, Kannazuki no Miko (http://mduo13.no-ip.org/gfx/shoujoai/kannazuki.jpg), Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito (http://mduo13.no-ip.org/gfx/shoujoai/yamibou.jpg), Maria-sama ga Miteru (http://mduo13.no-ip.org/gfx/shoujoai/mariasama.jpg), Avenger, Madlax (http://mduo13.no-ip.org/gfx/shoujoai/madlax.jpg), Noir, even (arguably) Fate/Stay Night (http://mduo13.no-ip.org/gfx/shoujoai/fatestaynight.jpg), Pita Ten (http://mduo13.no-ip.org/gfx/shoujoai/pitaten.jpg), and .hack//SIGN. Plus more that I've forgotten probably. Like Utena. And I don't even have any idea how much

And a little more yuri merchanise would be nice. I almost bought a KnM pencilboard. Posters would be better. And, well, I don't buy doujins, but I might be more tempted.

Shure Girls High is a comedy, all girl anime with pantie shots and fanservice everwhere. I would have to say Girls High is light Yuri.  Yuri doent have to allways have sexual intercorse. Its allso about girls relationships with each other just like yaoi is not all sexual aswell.
Title: Yuri
Post by: Leishu on May 31, 2006, 06:12:07 PM
Actually... Yuri DOES have to have sexual intercourse. Without it, it's Shoujo-Ai.

Dorian: No to what? :p
Title: Yuri
Post by: Charming_Dorian on May 31, 2006, 08:28:27 PM
No because not all of the "bishies" are omg beautiful, a lot of it are doing it for the attention. The no is in disagreement that itd be hard to find girls to do it, there are plenty of meh looking girls who I'm sure would love the attention... example: girls who wear cosplays that arent best for their body type... need attention perhaps? yeah.  
Main point: It wouldn't be too hard.
Title: Yuri
Post by: Akaihari on May 31, 2006, 08:33:44 PM
I guess the main thing is that there is so much attention to just yaoi.

It would be really cool if there could just be one section in one booth that was devoted to yuri.

that would be all I would need

We Need Yuri!! since there's Yaoi, we got to have Yuri too.

Post by: Leishu on June 01, 2006, 01:32:55 AM
The easiest and best way to do that is to find enough of the subject matter, find people to run the room/sponsor it (remember, all of the subject matter has to be legally acquired) and to make a proposal to the powers that be.

Yeah! It's descrimination to have yaoi, but not yuri!! Besides then we might see more girls open to the yuri factor at Fanime :twisted:
Title: Yuri
Post by: Leishu on June 01, 2006, 11:15:32 PM
Again... it's not discrimination. The reason why we have Yaoi live programming and rooms and not Yuri live programming and rooms is because people have not stepped forward with the staffing, planning capability, sponsorship, and general knowhow to run said rooms.

If you have all of those, then what are you waiting for? E-mail Jason and get the show on the road!

Lol. I was just being a Drama Queen. I don't even know how to run the AV stuff so I couldn't really help you there. <.<;;
Title: Yuri
Post by: Leishu on June 02, 2006, 12:57:23 PM
The AV stuff is actually pretty easy to run. If you're willing to put the work in (and I'm not. I'm a Yaoi-beast through and through) then you should really talk to the video heads, or at least make the suggestion to them. I guess you kinda have but perhaps more brainstorming is in order.

It's worthy of note that explicit Yuri, like explicit Yaoi, would need ID checks at the door.
Title: Yuri
Post by: YoureMyHiro on June 02, 2006, 01:06:21 PM
Im really not all that about Yuri but I am equality and it might just be a good idea to have both orients, Yaoi and Yuri at Fanime next year. If I can organize something, Ill make an appeal to Con Staff for a Yuri panel with similar activities to its Yaoi counter part for next year.

Screw yuri and yaoi, it's all about futanari.

Seriously though I don't have a problem with yaoi at Fanime; if you like that stuff then that's fine.  But I barely saw any balance between yaoi and yuri, if not no balance at all.

Please tell me you're joking. It was, at best, mediocre.

I especially hated how they made a huge deal out of, "If you don't choose, then you might lose both," and then in the last few seconds of the series they made it like they halfway reversed their own choice. Freakin' hypocrites.

But, I mean, it is basically shoujo-ai. Which brings my Shoujo-Ai Anime List up to:
-Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito (aka Yamibou)
-Kannazuki no Miko (KnM, also transliterated as "Kannaduki")
-Kashimashi ~Girl Meets Girl~
-Maria-sama ga Miteru (slightly more subtle...?)

Plus "implied" (or not-so-implied) shoujo-ai themes in:
-Madlax (esp. Vanessa)
-My-HiME (Mikoto)
-Noir (Kirika x Chloe)
-Avenger (Nei x Layla)
-He Is My Master (Anna)
-Fate/Stay Night (Rin x Saber)

Also, a certain other popular Bee Train anime has some vaguely shoujo-ai content, but it would be spoilers to say, and they don't make a big deal out of it.

Also, since I don't watch hentai, I have no idea how much yuri there is out there, but it seems like there should be enough that they could do one video room for at least part of one night, right?

Title: Yuri
Post by: RyuHayabusa on July 11, 2006, 01:15:27 AM
Strawberry Panic and Simou come to mind as well and Mai Otome, since it was an alternate universe version of Mai Hime.

I agree, if the yaoi fangirls get their own room, then the yuri fans should get their own room too.

if you guys wouldn't mind i would love to volunteer to help see it through. just throwing out a suggestion since this topic's last post was back in july.

i would love to start up a yuri room or the whatnot but only if people actually want to do it.

I think a yuri room would be totally awesome! It's really not fair that the yaoi fangirls, and the occational fanboys, get all the attention! Yuri should be getting lots of attention as well.  :cry:

Post by: Ayanami Rei First Child on March 04, 2007, 03:53:00 PM
Don't ask me.

Btw...what about Kashi Mashi? I don't know if that was ever stated. I mean even though the main charecter was born a guy....he gets that alien sex change thing in the first episode....<.<;
Title: Yuri
Post by: SuperKawaiiNeko on March 04, 2007, 05:52:05 PM
The age restriction is dependant on what exactly is shown. Kashimashi ~Girl Meets Girl~ definetly counts, and you wouldnt have to be 18 for that.

But dont forget that most of the yaoi stuff is sponsored by Yaoi Con. Its not that fanime is catering particularly to one side and not the other, its just that theres no Yuri Con active in California (at least not that I know of XD)
Title: Yuri
Post by: Ayanami Rei First Child on March 04, 2007, 06:31:05 PM
Yeah that DOES really rather suck and put us at an unfair disadvantage. Which is really weird considering how many guys love lesbians....but then again....girls go beyond that with their obcession over yaoi ^^;;

Yeah that is a good point. There's a lot of good yuri that isn't hentai.

There's the really soft stuff in that Maria-sama anime about the catholic school girls in Japan. Heck they even pan out when the girls are kissing. <.<;
