Favorite Yuri/Shoujo-ai Manga

It seems that anime like Queen's Blade, Aoi Hana and even Saki are putting Yuri more and more into the spotlight, but there is a much richer pool of Yuri/Shoujo-ai available as manga. Seeing as it is a genre that I love, I was wondering which series other people liked. I'm not really concerned with the number, but what are your favorite (3,5,10,whatever) Yuri/Shoujo-ai titles.

One disclaimer: seeing how much yuri comes out as one-shots or distantly linked stories in Yuri Hime, Yuri Hime S, Yuri Hime Wildrose, Yuri Shimai, et cetera, I would like to limit discussion to series that are on-going or have at least 5 chapters (about the minimum for a standard tankoban).

I have to start with:

Everything by Fujieda Miyabi (Iono Fanatics, The Miko's Words and the Witch's Incantations among others). He is by far my favorite Yuri mangaka, and the world he has created in his manga is wonderful place to visit and forget about life for a while.

The rest, in no particular order:
First Love Sisters
The Last Uniform
Aoi Hana
Sasameki Koto
Kashimashi

I love anything by Morinaga Miruku (Kuchibiru Tameiki Sakura Iro and Girlfriends, as well as the NanaxHitomi shorts she has written), I've quite fond of her art style, no one does blushing schoolgirls quite like her ^_^

Like you, I also love Fujieda Miyabi (*glances at my volume of Iono-Sama fanatics, and wishes Infinity would release volume 2), he's also done at least 2 K-ON doujins (all ages) which were quite enjoyable to read. Of course the yuri content has been increased over that of the anime :P

Strawberry Shake Sweet is another very enjoyable series, it's only two volumes, but it's packed with comedy, if you liked Iono or Sasameki, I'm pretty confident you'll like this.

Yoshitomi Akihito I've quite fond of as well, mainly due to his art. He doesn't have any longer series out though that are yuri focused, ecept for Blue drop and its spinoffs which I have not read yet. (The Secret Stream is especially worth reading)

Octave is an excellent change of pace from the high school setting, featuring two women in their early twenties in a relationship. I like the art as well.

I've also read and enjoyed everything else on your list, with the exception of The Last Uniform (I keep telling myself to order the volumes but never do ><)

However if forced to pick an absolute favorite I'd say it was For You, My Beloved. It's a one shot, but it's 60 something pages long, so the characters are fleshed about a bit more (though I'd be quite happy to see a continuing series as well)

Shoujo sect is what basically introduced me to yuri.

I also read Maka-maka, it seems to focus on adult-relationships between 2 women(obviously), who are "friends with benefits", which of course they engage in other personal relationships. It's also full colored.

Wrestle! Idol is also one of my personal favorites. Aside from the comic relief and ALOT of fanservice, I really liked the drawings.

I'm also planning to watch KashiMashi - Girl Meets Girl anime, since I read the manga around a year or so ago.

There's alot more I can think of, but they don't seem to pop in my head right now. I read yuri on daily basis though.

Kannazuki no MikoFor sure! I haven't read many yuri's but I have read the manga&have watched the anime for Kannazuki no Miko, and I lovee it!

I would have to say though, the anime is still 10x better then the manga >.< Too bad then ending has to be one of those super sad but at the same time happy endings, more sad then happy if you ask me x3
