This site is dedicated to serving the shoujo-ai/yuri fan community. The Japanese words "shoujo ai" literally mean "girl love", and this phrase has been adapted by Western anime and manga enthusiasts to denote lesbian romance and relationships. "Yuri" is a word literally meaning "lily", and refers in a broader sense to female/female content of any variety, from subtle to erotic. Many fans today use these terms interchangeably.
Historically, anime and manga works containing canonical lesbian content were notoriously few and far between, and many enthusiasts were forced to subsist on scattered hints and subtext. However, in recent years many new shoujo-ai works have been released, and both the shoujo-ai genre and its fandom are continuing to expand.
People of all genders and preferences can be drawn to yuri. From the warmth and tenderness of a sweet shoujo-ai romance, to the loving comfort and understanding two women can draw from each other, to the passionate beauty and excitement of female/female sensuality...many individuals are drawn to these things for many reasons, but all with open minds and hearts are welcome here.Whether you are a professed shoujo-ai lover or are simply curious to find out more, we hope you will enjoy your visit.
