and novels, because they are more numerous, and it's easier
to relate them broader tends in writing.
Lililicious among others have fan-translated a number of recent
and earlier yuri-themed manga.
One also might ask questions about what audience various
anime/manga were targeted at.
It seems to be a recent "discovery" that readers of male-oriented
mangazines, are interested in (non-pornographic) series with
mostly female characters. I'd point to Azumanga Daioh, Nanoha,
and Strawberry Panic as examples of this (though Nanoha, also,
spun off of a game francise). These works may be borrowing
genere conventions from shoujo writing, but the audience
still affects the fanservice and emphasis.
There is also interesting material in the area of gender
reversal/confusion in shoujo anime/manga.
