Why We Call It “Yuri” on Anime Feminist

A brief article for the Anime Feminist blog, discussing some of the words used to describe manga and doujinshi with female same-sex couples and why Yuri creators and fans decided specifically on the word, “Yuri” during a conversation in a cafe in Tokyo in 2005. (Also, capturing oral history, so we don’t lose it in the depths of Internet rumors.)

Why We Call It Yuri has been added to the Yuricon Essays Page links.
