A junior high student named Utena attends the enigmatic Ohtori Academy, a school that has a curriculum based on duels between students in order to win the hand of Anthy Himemiya, also known as the "Rose Bride". There's quite a bit of debate around their relationship. English dubs are Sailor Moon 's worst enemy, it seems, because Zoisite's gender was changed to female his appearance was feminine enough that they believed they could get away with it to effectively erase their homosexual relationship and manufacture a heterosexual one. Cardcaptor Sakura follows the story of a young girl named Sakura, who accidentally unleashes a set of magical cards that must be retrieved to prevent an apocalyptic future. Sumika is tall, strong, and outgoing, but Ushio only seems to be into shy, cute girls. However, in the original Japanese-language series, not only are the two clear about the fact that they are dating, but they would often playfully joke about it with subtle lines throughout the show. Athletic and tomboyish in attitude, Utena wears feminised version of the Ohtori boys uniform.
The strength of the series, which can seem overly styled or even boring to some, is in the potential for breaking out of the Class S and classic yuri tropes:
The go-to source for comic book and superhero movie fans. There's no way around it: Overall, the series accurately portrayed the strangeness that is puberty and how that strangeness can become very dark for trans kids.
While yuri subtext is pretty clear to many and is even clearer in the series' spin-offNoir is just damn good fun where the focus is on an extremely strong relationship between the two female characters.
