Well there is a couple of hints between Homura and Madoka in my opinon, i only ship them yuri-wise. I also ship SayakaXKyousuke and MamiXKyubey. But it's not yuri, lebih along the lines of some-what shoujo-ai.
I believe that Puella Magi definitely has yuri subtext, and I definitely think there are feelings between Madoka and Homura that would develop into romantic Cinta if they had had the time. Also, Homura was in Cinta with Madoka from the start. My kegemaran pairing is Kyouko and Sayaka, who, once again, could definitely have been together if they'd had lebih time. Their story, I thought, was epic-ly romantic, and even though Sayaka was in Cinta with Kyousuke, she would have gotten over him eventually and turned to a very caring Kyouko. If she hadn't... y'know. (And I also like MamiLotte cuz it's cute, and so Mami won't get left out). To sum it up, YES! Puella Magi is a "kind of yuri anime" sejak far.
