Within the Japanese anime and manga, yaoi is the tradition of representing same-sex male relationships in materials that are generally created by women artists and marketed mostly for Japanese girls  while the genre known as yuri focuses on relationships between women. Some LGBT characters in animation are derived from graphic art works and video games.
