This time I’ll be talking about Citrus which was a manga originally by Saburouta. Later, made into an anime show by Seven Seas Entertainment. I will say that the manga did interest me, but I never got the time to get into it which is why I’m so glad they made an anime show version of it.
It’s about two girls that are total opposites of each other made to be step-sisters after their parents marry each other and not only that have to share a room. Yuzu is the perky, girly type of girl who likes wearing make up, jewelry and being social with others. She’s not afraid to speak her mind either which is why she sticks out like a sore thumb at her new school after she and her mom moved, so they could all live together. Mei, on the other hand, is the strict, bookworm type that follows the rules and makes sure everyone is doing their part. She is the student council president and the chairman’s granddaughter and you can tell just from looking at her that she doesn’t even know what the definition of fun is.
Now here’s the kicker, not long after they meet they both realize that they have feelings for each other. I think Mei already knew about her sexual preferences because she was the one who started this train of hotness. Also, when Mei was engaged to one of the teachers in the school, she didn’t look like she was enjoying any of his ‘affections’ towards her, but liked Yuzu almost instantly.
A lot of different things get between their forbidden love as they struggle to be a gay couple. This is still an ongoing series, so I don’t know how things are going to turn out for them yet. I think some people in this show might get shocked because some people like the parents don’t know about the relationship, but I think Mei’s grandfather had a little inkling of what she wanted especially after the whole teacher fiasco (for those of you who watched it know what I’m talking about).
This anime is nothing short of hot, suggestive and sweet. It’s interesting to see these two girls struggle in being in a relationship and help each other with their personal issues. This anime is very open about gay love, so I wouldn’t recommend this for you people out there that are homophobic in any way shape or form. But, for those other people though, I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did even though their aren’t many episodes out yet for our enjoyment. We can only wait and see what happens next.
Thanks for Reading!
