Yaoi is known as Bara? That's funny... since Bara means rose, and Yuri means lily... huh. I guess homosexuality is very flowery!

Haha, the yaoi acronyms... the first one is sad, but the second one is amazing. I wonder where yuri came from, then.

lol. I love that acronym. Oh but as far as Yuri goes, it sadly isnt an acronym since like you said it literally translates to "lily" but the term "Yuri" used to be "Yurizoku" which is "Lily tribe" and for gay men it's Barazoku "Rose Tribe" ...however this was found in a magazine geared toward gay men and "Yurizuko" was only a column in the mag. Anyway I'm not sure if that was it's correct and original usage but I just thought of that when you mentioned what Bara is!

and OF COURSE homosexuality is flowery xD...flowers are gay! lmao. ( I so don't mean that in the insulting sense of the words commonly used now!!!)

Yes, flowers are pretty too. =D

It's kind of cool that gay means happy. xD I wonder how they chose that word to mean what gay means now.

Ah, ok. Let me make a list really quick

*time goes by*

For Yuri there is:

Mai Hime
Mai Otome Hime
Maria-sama ga miteru (more shoujo-ai really) There are apparently more then one season of this show.
2x2 Shinobudon
Ayane's High Kick (which I never finished, CRAP)
Bakuretsu Tenshi
BROTHER DEAR BROTHER! (this is an ooooooold anime but it is SOOOO good, artistically and story wise, However there is not much "love" in the show if you get what I mean)
Devilman Lady (which I personally loved but also the lesbian part of it was not in the center fold Sad it really only came up till the end)
Ikkitousen Dragon Destiny
Kannazuki no Miko (or) Kannaduki na Miko
Kashimashi (girl meets girl)
Read or Die
Read or Dream
Steel Angel Kurumi 2
Strange Love
UTENA (the movie as well as the show are great. however the movie is extremely abstract!)
Yami To Boushi to hon no tabibito

I've watched about 87% of all those shows but I suggest you take a look at them all and pick the ones you like best. I can't remember anymore then that at the moment.



As For Yaoi:
Ai no Kusabi
Desire
Fake
Finder Series
Fujimi Orchestra
Haru wo Daiteita
Kizuna: Bonds of Love
Level C
My Sexual Harassment
Papa to Kiss in the Dark
sukisho
Loveless ***** nice story Smile
Gravitation


There is another one that i currently can't remember too but if anyone else knows any others to mention please help out!

Thanks for the list. I didn't expect it to be so long. I don't know where to start. It'll probably take a good weekend for this. Thanks again! I hope shia takes a look at your list, she might like it too.

No, its Avie's. She posted it on her forum and gave me permission to share it. I liked it alot and thought the group here would appreciate it. I should put something that says spoilers though.

I love the song!!! I give her a lot of credit for it having been her first AMV ..but I couldn't follow it at all very well. It looked like a bunch of scenes just meshed up together..it only started to make a bit of sense to me toward the end.... all things considered, I enjoyed it. xD

Sorry i don't know these terms. Whats an AMV? No btw, do you do commissions? That yaoi you did was pretty excellent. How are your girl figures? I mean, the proportions were great. Does it take a long time to do?

AMV stands for "Anime Music Video" they're a lot more work to make then one would think! so again, I give Avie a lot of credit.

As for commissions? Yes, I do Smile I can't tell you the last time I had one tho. lol
As far as my females? i'll just say that I am better at females than I am at males considering that's all I've ever really drawn. Have you seen my comic on Drunk Duck? I haven't updated in AGES but its good enough to give you an idea of how I do my females. I also do more DC and Marvel styled females as well. I'm not all about the manga and anime. heh.
here's a link to my comic if you've never seen it before.

That AMV was kind of Meh to me, there were a few really good moments like where the red haired girl is "set free" it matches great with the music there. All in all it is pretty good Smile

And I know how much work AMV's are. I have done a few myself and it takes AGES!
So because I am douche I will show you Very Happy

I made a couple AMVs a few years back but they were mostly for my own personal pleasure. They're in my brother PCs however -.-

Anyway, this one was one of the more comical ones I've watched. It made me all happy inside because of the tune xD. Good Job btw! Also I have an inkling feeling that I've seen it before, that you showed me? hmm....maybe it's just de ja vu. xD

It doesn't help that a lot of the terms have shifted meanings a little on their way from east to west. Also, Japanese terms are generally non-genderspecific. Unless you've talked with someone or have some reference points it's difficult to be sure what they mean when they start throwing out tems like yaoi, shojo, shonen-ai.

In many ways, Uke and Seme are actually rather nasty terms as they have built in stereotyping, but as yaoi (as opposed to shonen-ai or BL) exists to 'focus on the yummy parts' (very tired quote) that's probably not surprising, and could even be viewed in a similar context to 'lesbian' movies for straight men. Apparently shonen-ai started out generally more cerebral, and the yaoi movement basically set out to make it more popular and less ivory tower.

While we're talking about terms, though, I believe there is a name for 'attacking uke' but I don't remember it if I'm right and it exists. There is also, however the term 'riba', meaning 'reversible'...

I've heard that Bara was meant to be very specifically different from the term Yaoi. Where Yaoi is made mainly by women and for women, Bara's target is gay men and are often written by men. A good visual factor is to think of the thin, adro, yaoi pretty boy and the hairy, buff, bara butch.

On a totally different note, has anyone read Claudine? It has to be in my top 5 for favorite one shots, regardless of genre, but also in my 5 for girl love manga as well. It's so deep and the artwork is to die for and it takes a totally different take on the traditional GL genre. Plus the main character is a transvestite, so I have to relate. 9v9 I totally recommend it.
