Okazu Glossary of Yuri Terms
- There is a certain amount of jingoism involved in any niche interest;
technical terms, fan slang, nicknames, cultural terms, etc. In the
case of Yuri manga and anime, we also have a load of Japanese terms to
deal with. And, as my readers know, I have coined some specific
shorthand terms of my own.
So, to provide a topic of discussion, a reference for future posts and
a way of avoiding having to answer "what does xyz mean?" questions
over and over, I've pulled out an old glossary we did for Onna! in
2005, updated and adapted it for Okazu:
Hungry for Yuri? Have some Okazu!
- I haven't seen you for a long time.
It is holiday in Japan though May 5 is Monday. "Yuri club" is planned
in "Comitia" done on this day.
This is a spot sale association of the creation work.
The circle that exceeds 100 concerning the yuri plans to participate.
It is likely to become an event that should be paid attention if there
is being possible to come to Japan at this time.
My circle also plans to exhibit.
