Top 10 Anime with Yuri Undertones"Hello, yes? I'm here for the yuri. I was told there'd be yuri. No? It's more just undertones? This isn't what I was promised! No, I'm sorry, I have to go, no, you, NO, YOU SAID, NO, UNDERTONES ARE NOT YURI, OKAY? YOU GO ALL THE WAY OR YOU GO HOME, I'M NOT DEALING WITH THIS! IT'S YOUR ONE JOB, MY COFFEE MAKER HAS ONE JOB, TO MAKE COFFEE AND IT MANAGES TO DO THAT EVERY SINGLE DAY! I'M NOT ON THE RECEIVING END OF "COFFEE UNDERTONES"! THEY'RE GIRLS. IF THEY'RE NOT DOING GAY THINGS TO EACH OTHER, THEN WHAT ARE THEY GOOD FOR?"

Regardless of your personal feelings on anime that are subtle about its girls being more then just friends or not, here's a list of the top anime with yuri undertones.
The Top Ten
Its not yuri but yuri. I love the anime a lot.
At the end of the shows 2nd season I was greatly dissapointed.. mainly because I didn't ship them, I shipped one of them hardcore with someone else
The sexual tension between Kumiko and Reina is so thick you could cut it with a knife. - WholeGrainNeko
They almost kissed at one part. they really should have gone for a kiss or more.
"I won't let the boys have you. You're mine, Madoka! " - WholeGrainNeko
I ship Sayaka and Sakura. - TwilightKitsune
No one could come right out and say they were a lesbian or in a sexual relationship, since this was a kids show in Japan. But Utena and Anthy and a few other female couples do gaze lovingly at each other a whole lot. (The movie is straight-up yuri and didn't have to be subtle about anything like the series did.) - WholeGrainNeko
Love these lesbians
There's a ridiculous amount of blushing and glomping between the two main girls in the series. They would make a cute couple. - WholeGrainNeko
The all-girls cast makes it easy for lots of subtext to slip in. - WholeGrainNeko
I personally ship NozoEli myself. - PerfectImpulseX
Definitely! There are so many hints that the girls like each other! My ships include:
NicoMaki (my absolute favourite! )
and Honoka x Tsubasa (I don't know what their ship name is LOL)
The relationship between Princess Fine and Izetta is often implied to go beyond mere respect. - WholeGrainNeko
While Yuri! on Ice dominated all the talk of same-sex relationships in anime in the fall 2016 season, not enough of a look was given at Flip Flappers. The two main females straight-up declare their love for each other at a climatic moment...in a "friendly" way? More then that? The show doesn't confirm or deny anything, so it's pretty blatant yuribait. - WholeGrainNeko
According to the manga, Tsubomi said that she will still love Itsuki regardless of gender, making her bisexual. Also, Yuri Tsukikage and Momoka Kurumi have a very homoerotic relationship with each other. - PerfectImpulseX
This is pretty borderline; the series is considered yuri by a lot of people, but it officially ran in magazines aimed at young girls as a simple close friendship tale between girls. - WholeGrainNeko
"Oh wow, there's 'yuri' in the title of this one, it's gotta be pretty blatant, right? " Nope! A lot of blushing and nosebleeds, but no real yuri delivering. - WholeGrainNeko
Yui x Kyoko ❤️
Akira and Ulith's relationship in the second season. Even if Ulith was just using her, Akira falls easily into her trap, and was probably genuinely in love with Ulith. - WholeGrainNeko
Yuri undertones are kindly provided by Kagami and Konata, and I think it’s pretty obvious how they feel about each other. Even if it was never confirmed, there’s a lot of strong evidence from both of them throughout the series. I ship it! ❤️
Kaos is just too gey for this to not be on this list.
