Why are there so few yuri fans in anime and manga in comparison to yaoi fans? Is it because writers and the audience know how insufferable they are and don't want them added to the stories?

Pretty sure most yuri fans are just male otaku, and there are tons of those characters.

While on the topic of demographic questions, why aren't there more traditional action figure toys of super popular things like One Piece or Dragon Quest?

Is there even a target audience for yuri? (besides a sub-fanbase from yaoi).

are you that guy who says all the female yuri mangaka are secretly male?

I mean Japan isn't like 4chan, you can't just hide your gender when it's convenient (I think).

Yuri appeals to straight males.
Yaoi appeals to homos and straight women.

It's the opposite. It's so widespread that it's useless as a distinguishing trait.

As a semi-normalfag who frequents a college campus with people I grew up with, there were 3 girls who were childhood friends. They all used to like yaoi, then some time they got into college they were no longer interested in it, and were all about the yuri. They've talked about their favorite MadoHomu doujins with me before. It's not a huge sample pool, but it seems relevant.

>>124804523
yuri is for women too

you might want to question your sexuality a bit there, mate

That better have been the last conversation you had with them.

subtext is widespread
actual yuri is barely a genre

also reminder that "yuri subtext" is anything that passes the Bechdel test (no exceptions).

This. With a few glorious exceptions like Horizon, yuri has yet to even really get past the gimmick stage that these things always tend to go through. There's plenty of subtext but it's not generally accepted let alone popular as just a plain old thing with no particular impact per se.

Can't really see that changing in the near future either, particularly given Japan's demographics. Maybe if IPS stuff takes off since that'd make them legit able to carry on lines an Asia is very big no families, that's a much bigger source of disapproval then moralizing like it is in the West.

Anyone who thinks that fujos are bigger than yurifags needs some updating

A regular woman has no need to watch porn. She can just go outside in a short skirt and have a "date" by the end of the day. Those who watch porn are gay women and fat ugly women, naturally they watch gay porn.

There are more females that like yuri than there are males that like yaoi.

Oh sweet a blog thread.

Because heterosexual relationships in a patriarchal context (i.e. almost everywhere in the modern world) are inherently violent towards women. It's no surprise that they'd choose to live vicariously through through relationships where there is no gendered power imbalance, regardless of which gender happens to be involved.

Only one was fat. Other two were skinny, one of whom was literally anorexic.

It was right after the TV series came out. I've since then become just as jaded towards the franchise as most of the people browsing /a/, I imagine.

>he think the whole 3DPD is a joke

How's your first week on /a/?
>>
>>124805076
No, I'm not. The men in the homothread overwhelmingly dislike the yaoi material that is most popular with women.
>>
>>124805124
He's right though. Often women will say they like lesbian porn for example because it's more sensual (i.e. less aggressive), and focuses on the woman's pleasure

That's the reason why the "for women" category even exists in the first place
>>
>>124805059
For that matter I know a gay dude that likes yuri. Not the actual sex stuff, but for whatever odd historical reasons there's tons of non-h yuri that does everything from fluffy diabetes inducing romance to pervert humor to simple SoL to varying degrees of drama. According to a previous thread there are a bunch of people on /a/ at least who barely even fap to yuri at all, but mostly go to yuri for the hnnng and futa-on-female for the fapping.

Kind of weird frankly how markets develop and various traits and subcultures can get a life of their own over the decades. I have no idea why but yuri has turned out different from yaoi in more then just one is chicks and one is dudes, they've often got different overall feels even if you imagine a swap. Though because of that it can be kind of cool when one artist does something else, I liked Creo for example and that was a mainly yaoi author.

Sure, that was a trail blazer, but we still end up with the likes of Sakura Trick "OMG GIRLS KISSING" and "well they go to an all girls school" and so on. They never actually had Nanoha & Fate just do normal couple things or marry off screen despite the situation just becoming ludicrous. Subtext is everywhere, but yuri remains niche and I don't see that changing in the near future.

>>124805407
Prove me wrong then. Sure there are a few exceptions, but much of the recent actual yuri there is vs subtext-that-will-never-do-anything is very much in the "whoa guys, THIS IS YURI! HIGHLIGHT THAT!" category. Can you even imagine something like Sakura Trick as het? "It's a girl… KISSING a GUY!" Uh ok, yeah and? Wouldn't even get off the drawing board without something of actual substance, for normal accepted stuff two people kissing just isn't worth anything by itself independent of their characters.

Also to be clear I'm talking purely about anime here. Manga got past that forever ago.
