I trace the literary and historical roots of The Girl Prince in Yuri manga today on Hooded Utilitarian in this month’s Overthinking Things.
I’ve discussed three main Yuri tropes so far: The Yamato Nadesico/genki commoner couple, the private school location and the Girl Prince/Otokoyaku.
I was thinking of touching upon codes for “lesbian” in Yuri manga for a future column over at HU. What other common Yuri tropes would you like to see traced back to their roots? No promises that anything will go anywhere, but I’ll at least consider all reasonable ideas. (^_^)
