Minor thing, but I keep seeing "cos" instead of "'cause" in translations lately. It bugs me a bit more than it probably should...

Yes, since as far as I'm aware "cos" is a very old abbreviation of "because" at this point and was in use for some time already. I see and use it for at least 10 years now.

Aside from Nanoha and Madoka, isn't there yuri in Yuki Yuna? Also, does Flip Flappers count? They're magical (I think), they transform (sometimes), they fight an evil secret organization, and they have a mascot.

->Doesn't count Symphogear

Symphogear is excellent and deserves more love. Also, the gacha game features Hibiki in a suit, automatically making it the greatest piece of media ever produced (tearfully pats XDU NA's corpse).

I love the conceit of “magical girl is like a dead-end
job,” and this girl is having second thoughts about her career. For all the ways Magical Girl stuff has been retold for a more adult audience lately, I think this aspect of it as a grueling job is underexplored.

Well with that one big exception

^ Yup- I think I know all the big subtext magical girl yuri ships out there- and dont get me wrong I love them :) I really love 'The demon girl next door' and really hope s2 will be great :)

But I meant a magical girl show with blatent yuri like in strawberry panic or sakura trick, with kissing and romance and dating etc!

I would kill for a season of precure where 2 of the girls actually became a couple!

The closest I can think of is nanoha, where the two mains are effectively married, sharing a house, a bed and a child. However you never get to see them DO anything,

Edit: of course nanoha is s mech anime in magical girl clothing so it may not count :p

In Sailor Moon the "cousins" are a couple in the Japanese version too

Ohh an Mako is overtly attracted to Ryuko in Kill la Kill

This is really fun! I always love it when there's a meta twist to the magical girl formula. I hope we can see Ruby's civilian form too haha

@Skywallker Just to be clear in the Japanese version they are NOT cousins. They tried to hide all the blatent and subtext yuri by making them cousins and cutting stuff for the terrible western release where they also altered all their names to something dumb as well.

I did kinda forget about symphogear and nanoha- they do count, but they are still not exactly the blatent 'we are girlfriends' and on screen kissing I hope to see one day :)

I love magical girl yuri mangas, i dont know why

or maybe Im biased because madoka magica was great and "looking up to magical girls" might be the greatest ecchi yuri comedy ever made

Poryu: Why can't you just realize that you and Ruby are gay for each other?
Azurite: We are not. I just think she's really cute and she thinks I'm cool. You can't just say we're-
Poryu: On the mahou shoujo exam, we asked questions that only lesbians would know the answers to.
Azurite: Then how did I pass- oh.

Ruby's civilian form is probably a super popular classmate who secretly adored Azusa's cringey high school intro

Also I adore Azusa and her mascot's relationship. It's super cute and so much fun

I didn't want to be any ranger. When wounded I wouldn't bleed, but let out sparkles instead and that suit would be so far up my butt crack that I could cross off a prostate exam from my to-do list. Also I would be the one to suggest to start the fight already with the Megazord since we always fail to kill the monsters before they get bigger and I'm sure that would make me really upopular.

I'm sure there's plenty of kids who would love if the show were just giant robots vs. monsters.

5 year old me would have, I know that much.

The first thing 5 years old me thought seeing Power Rangers for the first time was how uncomfortable those suits would be in Summer and why was everybody exploding.

Author's drawn some pretty clear yuri stuff before, and this doesn't seem to break from tradition. Probably just a case of the 'mahou shoujo' aspect taking precedence over the 'yuri' one in terms of advertising and tagging. Although I'd personally like to think that magical girls are so gay that it's a given that any series about them would feature lesbians.
