    Not really a fan of either, but I'd rather have girl on girl than guy on guy... That's for sure.

    Just to clarify, you are sure you mean yaoi and yuri (same-sex pornography), and not shounen-ai and shoujo-ai (same-sex romance), right? For some reason, most people never distinguish between these, nor know the difference.



    Now, here's how this poll is going to go down:

    Almost every female who votes will vote for yaoi.
    Almost every male who votes will vote for yuri.

    Most comments will say "well, I'm okay with either".

    The primary difference with fans of the two are the girls tend to be much more enthusiastic about yaoi than guys are over yuri. Hence why yaoi and shounen-ai are so highly stocked in American stores which sell manga, while you will almost never see yuri manga.

    I don't like yaoi or yuri since I'm a girlxguy person. Eto.... I would still prefer girlxgirl than boyxboy most definitely.

    So to answer your question, Yuri.

    You can't compare them. They are meant for a completely different audience therefore this thread is no longer moot.

    I would think Yuri would be more popular because mostly all guys will vote for it, and a select few girls, while on the other hand mostly only girls would vote for Yaoi.

    I'm really not a big fan of either and try to aviod them but i still voted for Yuri since Yaoi kinda makes me cringe.

    The guy above me was kinda right. Neither yaoi or yuri is superior because of people's opinions. I prefer yuri.

    Alos, the "yaoi/yuri means hentai and shojo-ai/shonen-ai means just romace" isn't true. In Japan, Shojo-Ai and Shonen-Ai are not used, even for non-explicit series like Strawberry Panic and Marimite. For some reason, people think that they mean different things. Shojo-Ai can be explicit and yuri can have nothing but kissing.

    I don't like either, but if I had to pick I would pick yaoi for obvious reason.

    I'm sorry, but this thread is offensive.
    So two men can boink eachother...And you're fine with it.
    Two women? They can do whatever it is they do that's the girl on girl equivilent of a boink, and you're fine with this too.

    Okay.
    But what about the REAL anime relationships?
    I ask you sir/madame.
    What do YOU have against Japanese Schoolgirl X Tentacle Monster to keep them off of the poll?
    Looks like we have a tentaphobe all up in here.

    You see, Batman there hasn't been any tentacle animu since the late 90's because no one would let Japan see uncensored women "flamingos". Tentacles where used to replace a mans thingamajigger so adding tentacles to the list wouldn't make sense.

    God damn, I need more pictures of Spider-Man.

    Alos, the "yaoi/yuri means hentai and shojo-ai/shonen-ai means just romace" isn't true. In Japan, Shojo-Ai and Shonen-Ai are not used, even for non-explicit series like Strawberry Panic and Marimite. For some reason, people think that they mean different things. Shojo-Ai can be explicit and yuri can have nothing but kissing.
    And over the last two decades, they have grown to mean as such to Western audiences. We've adapted their terms to define something that was undefined before. Stop being such a weeaboo.

    Now, here's how this poll is going to go down:

    Almost every female who votes will vote for yaoi.
    Almost every male who votes will vote for yuri.

    Most comments will say "well, I'm okay with either".

    The primary difference with fans of the two are the girls tend to be much more enthusiastic about yaoi than guys are over yuri. Hence why yaoi and shounen-ai are so highly stocked in American stores which sell manga, while you will almost never see yuri manga.
    I see. Thanks for pointing that out. Now I see the difference. I agree with everything that you said here.

    My own opinion:

    I don't like both. I'm a little disgusted by it. So I abstained/didn't vote.

    But if I must choose I'll choose Yaoi because I'm a girl. And I'd rather see guyxguy than girlxgirl. Either way it's I don't like it.
    Some people say "You can't have it all." I say "I can try~!!!" - OtakuInu!!!

    I don't like yaoi in any way (since I'm a guy and I'm not gay). So I'd go with yuri, though I don't really like it. (Although I admit it can be nice, but I'm not really into it.)

    I enjoy both. However, as far as choosing goes, I'm split. I far more picky with which yaois I like, but I enjoy them slightly more. Yuri, being the opposite.

    So, I suppose in terms of quality over quantity, I prefer yaoi.

    Also, (and I dunno if this makes me weird), but I dislike girlxguy relationships in anime/manga.

    I happen to know many heterosexual men who are completely fine with watching yaoi. Liking yaoi, and being male, in no way means that you are gay.

    Yes, that makes you VERY weird. Guyxgirl relationships in anime are awesome..... (and I like them far more than yaoi/yuri). They are usually the best written of the three...wheras blatant yaoi/yuri tends to be all smut and fanservice....thus giving them a VERY shallow feel. Tsk tsk. Subtle yaoi/yuri is best in my eyes.
