The reason why we call girls’ love “Yuri” is because one of the magazines “Barazoku” was released in Japan.
The chief editor of this magazine started to call it “Yuri.” Barazoku was published around 1970 as a magazine based on boys’ love. In Barazoku, boys’ love was described as “bara (=rose)” and girls love was described as “yuri(=lily)” as the opposite element from the boys’ love.
(They say that) Bara is originally derived from a story, where “boys who loved each other were spending their lovely time under the rose tree in the ancient Greece.”

Keeping it a secret from all of their friends? We’re dating!
It’s a crazy love comedy by two completely different-type (appearance and personality) girls!
