This is one of those “no plot” anime series in which you just follow cute girls doing cute things. Of course it has the comedy that goes with that distinct sub-genre, but they also threw some yuri in. The yuri is much more substantial in the second season where it explores more of the relationships and a big dollop of jealousy is thrown into the mix.

Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san

You know those cute animal videos people love where a dog and a cat end up as cuddle buddies? Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san is like those videos in anime form. Nekoyama is a shy tsudere that loves dogs. Inugami is a friendly, albeit masochistic girl that loves cats. They meet and develop feelings, but while Inugami is overwhelming with affection, Nekoyama is always bashful. As a short episode anime, the episodes are only 3-minutes long, but it conveys a lot of its fluffy plot without stopping for any filler.

Kanamemo

After her grandmother dies and she is left alone in the world, Kana moves into a newspaper carrier as a live-in delivery girl. However, her room has a hole in it that her co-workers use frequently to let themselves in.

Kanememo is one of those yuri stories where the heroine isn’t full-on into it, but every girl around her just kind of tosses themselves at her. She’s a harem queen, for sure. It’s aimed more at comedy than yuri relationships, but there are lots of fluffy, albeit slightly naughty moments throughout.

Candy Boy

Who says that imouto love needs to be straight? Technically, Candy Boy isn’t imouto though, because the sisters are actually twins, but they are just so gay with each other. There’s not much plot other than two sisters being very close in a yuri way, and their clingy lower classman that always interrupts them because she has a crush on one of the sisters. However, it is one of those romance series where there is ten tons of teasing and you just want to reach into the screen and pop those two heads together so they would actually kiss already.

Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid

This series has no qualms about what it wanted to be. It follows a high school girl that gets kidnapped and is stranded on an island. She meets another fellow castaway that kisses her and uses her arousal to turn her into a weapon.  From there on, the two fight and form friendships with other lady duos. There are many kisses and much naughtiness to be had. However, the plot and overall fan service nature of it might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Netsuzou Trap

There is some debate as to whether this relatively new yuri anime is trash, a masterpiece, or wonderful trash. It is certainly one of the more graphic yuri anime series out there if that is what you are looking for without it being full-on hentai, but it is actually pretty sad too. In NTR, two best friends with boyfriends end up cuckolding their boyfriends with each other. However, one side of this relationship has suffered emotional and physical abuse, and as such, abuse begets abuse throughout the series. I think the cucking makes people most uncomfortable (possibly all that shiny, shiny girlflesh, too), but underneath there is a surprisingly emotionally complex story.

Strawberry Panic

Strawberry Panic is the yuri anime plot you always secretly wanted. It follows a new transfer student to an all-girls Catholic school. There she catches the attention of the girl at the very top of the school’s intricate hierarchy. While the main character tries to quietly live out school life, she and this school queen get to know each other, and with her help confront their troubled pasts.

Strawberry Panic is a yuri classic, not just for its somewhat cliché plot, but because it maintains a distinctly alluring balance of adorable and strangely sexy. It is a treasure, a real gem, especially since new anime series use moe to convey adorable these days.

Destiny of the Shrine Maiden

The Destiny of the Shrine Maiden is a fickle show. It starts off kind of bland, but actually gets better the more you watch of it. It also tries to confuse you by creating a love triangle between a boy and the two girls, but it wouldn’t be a yuri anime if he won! (Don’t worry about the spoilers, the OP/ED spoil the outcome plenty.) The premise is that two normal schoolmates have to become shrine maidens of the sun and moon to fight the evil orochi. However, one orochi is a childhood friend or one girl, and it makes them rethink their sacred battle. The yuri relationship is pretty on point and you also get some okay mech battles too.
