DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the word "yuri" has a different usage in the West than in Japan? But, its core meaning remains the same, only the type of content is different. In the West, "yuri" is a genre of lesbian fiction with explicit sexual scenes. In Japan, the term refers to a fiction containing sexual relationship, romance, emotional connection, platonic love, and more between women. Basically, it isn't limited to pornography. But in the West, a fiction wherein girls share a platonic love is called shoujo-ai, which means girls love. Luckily, the West is now adapting to the original usage of "yuri," while shoujo-ai is losing its significance.
Interestingly, "yuri" was a genre made for women. The first "yuri" works were published in magazines aimed at women. Although it was made for the female audience, men who like "yuri" have grown more in Japan along the years. At first, the sudden interest of male customers was a problem but they got recognized once they grew more. This resulted in yuri magazines to stop trying to be female-only. Moreover, the yuri audience either male or female doesn't even care who the main audience of the genre. Furthermore, Strawberry Panic, Simoun, and Maria-sama ga Miteru were the shows which piqued people's interest in yuri in the TV anime world. Unfortunately, it's rare for yuri anime to end up financially successful. This is also the same case with many harem, slice-of-life, and shounen anime.
