Kireina Yuri (綺麗な百合, lit. Beautiful Lilies), which is an Anime community that focuses primarily on Japanese media that have Yuri/Lesbian romantic relationships and Cute Girls Doing Cute Things/Girls' Club genre shows. With the growing popularity of Yuri anime in 2018 as more Yuri related anime release such as Citrus and Kase-san with more on the way, I wanted to create a community focusing on Yuri and Cute Girls Doing Cute Things, which have some yuri elements.

Currently, there is no English Yuri communities outside of Reddit. In comparison, Yaoi have quite a few big communities. The goal with this project is to create a Yuri and CGDCT fan community that can rival its counterpart for and by the fans without any advertisements.

What is Yuri?

It's a Japanese term also known as Girl's Love and the Kanji itself basically means lilly (百合、ゆり) in Japanese. It's a genre of anime and manga that focuses on lesbian relationships or romantic relationships between two girls.

Why focus on Cute Girls Doing Cute Things (aka Girls' Club Genre) as well?

Most often or not, this genre of Anime tends to have subtle or noticeable yuri elements, mostly because the cast is mostly or completely female. Some examples are Comic Girls, Slow Start, Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka, and Kiniro Mosaic.

Goals
My goal is to have at least 30-50 members and a few Patreon supporters. Since we are using Xenforo, which gives us things like automated anti-spam tools and automatic feed importing, allowing for curated content from Yuri and CGDCT related Anime, Manga and Japanese Media related blogs.

Here is what I set out to do
  • Create an Anime Nano replacement, but with an emphasis on Yuri and CGDCT. Like Anime Nano, the latest blog posts will be featured on the front page instead of showing the forum index. (DONE thanks to XenForo 2.0 Widgets!)
  • Creating an active safe for work community for Yuri and CGDCT fans to discuss related anime and manga, pairings/shippings, yuri creations and much more.
  • Create a self sufficient community that is supported by the fans through Patreon and without the need for advertisements.
Right now, it's in the infancy. As we grow, we will eventually move to a domain name, which will use the .moe top level domain. My role is just to provide the infrastructure as I have the technical know-how to manage the server and forum software.

This campaign allows people to support my efforts and help with the hosting costs and keeping the forum software up to date. If you decide to support us, you will receive special privileges such as a Patrons-only forum and extra forum-related features. Note that awards have to be manually processed for now. If you decide to support us, after making a pledge, send a PM to chikorita157 with your Patreon username so we can move you to the Patreon Supporter user group.
