        are up against so have no clue what would be safe for you. So far Utena has
        been working if it doesn't leave them lost for the most part. Alien 9 had my
        adience speechless at the ending while Miyuki-chan had them laughing.

        Sorry I can't be of much help. Mind is mush right now. Luck to you.

          at Yuri-con Then again there are enough Utena AMVs, perhaps i should do
          an Alien 9 one Assuming that the late night special is on saturday night and
          start the capturing process on Friday. Or I could pull a read or die ot of my
          Harddrive sincei still havent moved the footage off of my hard drive. So what
          say you all on this list? Utena, ROD, alien 9, or something Else? (Note that i
          cannot do a series due to hard drive limitations).

                  Hi Luke -

                  I'm sorry, but I don't think we understand what you are asking. Let me
                  remind you (and everyone on this list) that this is NOT an adult-only
                  list, so please do be careful of requests for adult topics, pictures, etc.

                  If you explain what you are looking for (and it is not an
                  inappropriate topic) we'll do our best to help.

                            Is that meant as a joke? The question was about a school anime club and G-Taste is hardly suitable for any school setting.

I also think his placement helps because she CHOOSES the yuri when another option is available.

                                    Definitely Kannazuki; i mean, there is a yuri kiss right in the first episode! Sure, it is rather narm that there is also the guy crying out one of the girl's name into the heavens while they kiss at his feet, but...

                                    I would recomend Steel Angel Kurumi (season 2 if you want hard yuri) or Kannazuki No Miko... plenty of yuri with the big robots, action and the like people think of with anime.

                                        Hi Andi,

                                        I think it would be the best to choose few episode from different
                                        series if you want to catch a form of yuri and thanks to it tell your
                                        audience what to except. Like someone said, Shoujo Kakumei Utena movie
                                        would be nice move. It's a movie, so they wouldn't feel like watching
                                        only a sneak peek.

                                        Or what about grab couple of yuri series, give your audience a brief
                                        introduction to each series and let them choose? Yuri series are very
                                        different at some point. If I would be an audience, I would like to
                                        see a mixure - Utena (a way of art), Blue Drop (yuri can be sci-fi
                                        too), Oniisama E (old school innuendo yuri), Strawberry Panic (for
                                        rightful selection, fluffy genre), and Devilman Lady (dark yuri for
                                        adults - question is if you can show something like that in your
                                        campus group). Noir or Madlax are interesting without doubt, but I am
                                        afraid that it's one of series where you discover the yuri side in the
                                        progress, not in the beginning (and like I understood you want to
                                        catch them on yuri, not anime ^^).

                                        Good luck with your choice!

                                        With kind regards,

                                            OK, being gay, an anime fan, a teacher, the advisor for an anime club (high school) and being one who introduced students and friends to anime; I am going to get on a small soap box (I'm short, so I don't need a big one). I have to take many of these same things into consideration when choosing anime for the anime club or in some cases for showing my classes. When showing it to a class, I have to convince those students of the idea, else they'll just go to sleep. In your case, some people in the lgbt group may already be fans, and then you will have those who think anime is nothing but smutty/cheesy/stupid crap. Noir and Utena Movie would be very BAAAAD choices.
                                             
                                            The purpose of this event is to meld together two organizations for the event, entertain, and maybe increase membership two fold; therefore, you want things that people will not have to "figure out" or have background knowledge of to understand what they're watching. Noir doesn't have enough pull, in my opinion, to catch non-anime people's attention. It's also very redundant. The Utena Movie is so packed full of imagery based upon its anime and a plot that is even harder to follow, that people will probably walk out. Kannazuki is ok, but I REALLY hate the fact that the female characters are so weak that they are ALWAYS (-_-*) bailed out by their male counterpart. Not really the message a lesbian would want to see (speaking from experience with my old lgbt organization).
                                             
                                            Yes, you may still run into the people who will turn their noses up and would rather walk out to have a cigarette than watch, but these choices could make those choices easier or harder for them to make. Strawberry Panic, Blue Drop, and KashiMashi would work well; I really love Simoun, but that might also be difficult to follow for the novice viewer. My vote would be for Strawberry Panic since it doesn't have too much as far as fantastical elements, it has a little cheekiness, passion and it's easy to follow.
                                             
                                            I haven't watched much in the yaoi department in the last few years, so I am of no help there. Note that I am not saying that these choices represent the best or worst of anime, but more and less successful choices for this situation. The best approach in this situation is to think about someone who have never viewed anime, because you want people to STAY and be part of the event and not walk out saying, "see, you can't understand that shit." But speaking as someone who has convinced some of the worst anime haters that it can be good, I step down.

                                            I would recomend Steel Angel Kurumi (season 2 if you want hard yuri) or Kannazuki No Miko... plenty of yuri with the big robots, action and the like people think of with anime.

                                              The president of the anime club only wants to show two shows: one yuri and one yaoi. I assume that it'll be two or three eps from each show. So unfortunately I can only pick one yuri. My thoughs so far are: Yamibou, Strawberry Panic, or Kashimashi. We're not going to be showingthe whole show at club; the president  doesn't want that, nor is he a yuri or yaoi fan. He was originally opposed to the idea. And he's not going to show it during regular club hours.

                                              Hi Andi,

                                              I think it would be the best to choose few episode from different
                                              series if you want to catch a form of yuri and thanks to it tell your
                                              audience what to except. Like someone said, Shoujo Kakumei Utena movie
                                              would be nice move. It's a movie, so they wouldn't feel like watching
                                              only a sneak peek.

                                              Or what about grab couple of yuri series, give your audience a brief
                                              introduction to each series and let them choose? Yuri series are very
                                              different at some point. If I would be an audience, I would like to
                                              see a mixure - Utena (a way of art), Blue Drop (yuri can be sci-fi
                                              too), Oniisama E (old school innuendo yuri), Strawberry Panic (for
                                              rightful selection, fluffy genre), and Devilman Lady (dark yuri for
                                              adults - question is if you can show something like that in your
                                              campus group). Noir or Madlax are interesting without doubt, but I am
                                              afraid that it's one of series where you discover the yuri side in the
                                              progress, not in the beginning (and like I understood you want to
                                              catch them on yuri, not anime ^^).

                                              Good luck with your choice!

                                              With kind regards,

                                                Someone couldn't agree with Kashimashi as yuri, but on the other side
                                                it's the anime which is accepted by wild audience - like Strawberry
                                                Panic -, so both should be okay :). And the main character is girlish

                                                      union (campus lbgt group) and we're going to have a yaoi/yuri night.
                                                      Most likely we'll be showing a few eps of one yuri and a few eps of
                                                      a yaoi. I was thinking of showing Simoun, but I'm not sure. Any
                                                      suggestion for shows?
                                                      >

                                                      I suggest using Episodes 10 and 11 of Maria Watches Us. These are
                                                      the episodes dealing with Sei and Shiori's relationship and the
                                                      aftermath of the novel "Ibara no Mori" being published.

                                                      It's two episodes, it's a very genuine expression of love, not
                                                      pandering like Strawberry Panic, or surreal like Utena.

                                                      It's also a way of showing a simple, sincere and beautifgul Yuri
                                                      story that doesn't rely on fake kisses or behavior that makes actual
                                                      lesbians cringe.

                                                      (I'd also like to point out, quite randomly and off-topic, that Sei
                                                      is *not* a perv. She does not grope Yumi. She merely hugs her. The
                                                      shift from simply touching Yumi, or putting her arms around her to
                                                      somehow behaving like a dirty old man is 5% in Yumi's mind and 95%

                                                          That's the issue with a lot of Yuri - the Yuri exists in a
                                                          relationship that builds up over time. It's not one, obvious "zOMG!"
                                                          thing - and when it is, it's usually wretched. :-)

                                                          Also recommended is episode 106 of Sailor Moon S, Sailor Uranus'

                                                            The president of the anime club only wants to show two shows: one yuri and one yaoi. I assume that it'll be two or three eps from each show. So unfortunately I can only pick one yuri. My thoughs so far are: Yamibou, Strawberry Panic, or Kashimashi. We're not going to be showingthe whole show at club; the president  doesn't want that, nor is he a yuri or yaoi fan. He was originally opposed to the idea. And he's not going to show it during regular club hours.

                                                            From what she stated above, I perceived it to be that she was talking about the anime club president, not the lbgt president. This a merging of the two clubs, correct?

I just wanted to comment on a statement that Erica made, "It's two episodes, it's a very genuine expression of love, not pandering like Strawberry Panic, or surreal like Utena. It's also a way of showing a simple, sincere, and beautiful Yuri story that doesn't rely on fake kisses or behavior that makes actual lesbians cringe."
                                                             
                                                            You have a valid argument Erica. However, as a lesbian myself, I beg to disagree in regards to your statement upon what behavior makes lesbians cringe and what doesn't. Although, many of us, would like to say that we represent the collective in regards to our lesbian community, I highly feel that your making a huge generalization and oversimplication on what lesbians like and don't like, based upon what you like and don't like. In addition, there is just as much diversity in the lesbian community as there is with any other type of minority and I can say that although you and I probably have many similarities, we also have just as many differences. Finally, through this message board and your blog, you make explicity clear what makes you cringe and what doesn't and even though I may disagree with you, I do love you for that, because I do think you bring up a lot of valid arguments.  Yet, I can say, that you do not represent me and you will never represent me as to what behavior I find repulsive as a lesbian.
