High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Yuri, also known by the
wasei-eigo construction Girls Love, is a Japanese jargon term for
content and a genre involving love between women in manga, anime,
and related Japanese media. Yuri can focus either on the sexual,
the spiritual, or the emotional aspects of the relationship, the
latter two sometimes being called sh jo-ai by western fans. The
themes yuri deals with have their roots in the Japanese lesbian
literature of early twentieth century, with pieces such as Yaneura
no Nishojo by Nobuko Yoshiya. Nevertheless, it is not until the
1970s that lesbian-themed works began to appear in manga, by the
hand of artists such as Ryoko Yamagishi and Riyoko Ikeda. The 1990s
brought new trends in manga and anime, as well as in d jinshi
productions, along with more acceptance for this kind of content.
In 2003 the first manga magazine specifically dedicated to yuri was
launched under the name Yuri Shimai, followed by its revival Comic
Yuri Hime, launched after the former was discontinued in 2004.
