Girls’ Love or GL, referred to by fans as “yuri,” is a literary genre or media that showcases romantic relationships between female characters. GL covers a wide variety of creative platforms like literary works, fan fiction, manga, anime, and even video games. Like Boys’ Love (BL) or Yaoi, the majority of GL writers are women authors. GL promotes ideal friendships or romances between women via flowery imagery. There are also a few GL works that target male fans to expand the target audience. Some of the most popular GL works over the decades are The Rose of Versailles, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Maria Watches Over Us, Strawberry Panic!, Kannazuki no Miko, Sakura Trick, and Citrus.
