I strongly recommend Candy Boy. it's my favorite yuri series (hint: look at my signature)

usually, I find more yuri stuff in manga, as opposed to anime.

Little Little, Girlfriends, Strawberry Shake and Sasameki Koto are all good yuri manga.

Candy boy for example is described in Japan as yuri, and so is Simoun.
Now that I think about that, it does kind of make sense. Like in Western culture, Manga refers to a style of comics, whereas in Japan, it refers to all comics.

But I've still always heard them as two separate things. Like, when I went to an anime con, there were some art classes, one of them was a "Yuri drawing class" which was for people 18+ only, there was also a "shoujo-ai drawing class" which was for 13+.

That's why I say "in Japan". Although, the use of "yuri" to describe the whole genre, whether sexual or romantic, explicit or implied, is slowly broadening in the Western fandom. The same is happening with publishers: for example American publisher Seven Seas use "yuri" to describe their girl x girl manga, even though none of their titles has sexual content (some of them don't even have a kiss lol).

Seven Seas is the one that publishes Strawberry Panic, right?

Yeah I think it was part of their strawberry line(still waiting for 3rd novel -_-)

Although it doesn't start airing till next month, I think Aoi Hana is going to be a series to watch for yuri.

I know the manga for Strawberry Panic was discontinued, but I think that there will be another light novel coming out in english soon.

Touka Gettan isn't exactly what I would call a yuri series, despite there being some minor yuri elements (very minor). It would be akin to calling Bleach a yuri series due to the presence of Chizuru.

I just started watching Bleach, but I still say that yuri is a minor element.

Wait for this upcoming season's Aoi Hana, if it's anything like the manga, then it's bound to be good.

The only thing that comes to my mind as being yurilicious is Ga-Rei ZERO.
