An official, legal sub of Oniisama e… (Dear Brother…) is available on YouTube! If you have never properly experienced Tragic Eighties Anime Lesbians, this is the place to start. (Okay, technically it was ’91-’92, but the whole aesthetic is very ’80s shoujo.)

Fair warning: this series can be very frustrating. On the one hand, the characters are gorgeous and you can see clearly how it’s a predecessor to Utena in the designs and some of the themes. On the other, it’s also a founding example of some of yuri’s most argh-worthy tropes — all the lesbians are tragic, some end up with men, some die, some do both, you get the picture. Some of the stuff in the middle is fun, though, so I do recommend giving it a look.
