An ungodly amount of lines and big letters aren’t enough to describe how spoilerish this post is, if you have been reading the manga, up to the chapter 36, you are welcome to read my writing on it, if not go check it out then come back hehe.

Ok you have been properly warned.

Citrus… I’ve been so delighted with the anime that I almost forgot about the manga…till the new translated chapter came out..I began to worry when I notice it was sort of a letter…and written in past tense..by Mei… she was incredibly well articulated ( considering how has she been honestly) with her feelings and how she came to fall for Yuzu..to let her know she had made her choice to take on this Aihara family legacy thing and get married ( cringe ) and to stop any contact with her…

I honestly was having a revolution inside, I had some actual feelings, like sadness and anguish and… well done Saburouta, you made me have an emotional connection with your characters, I deem that as a very important characteristic in an author, either if they do comics, manga, books, movies, I wanna feel something dammit.

So, I was upset at first, thinking that was the ending, cos, COME ON, how could it end like that!!! But I learned it’s not, now we aren’t sure how this will solve, maybe Mei’s fiancé ,who knows Yuzu likes someone and you know, Mei asked him not to tell Yuzu about it..intervenes, maybe it’s Yuzu’s mom, or even in a more climatic way, it’s Shou, Mei’s dad, stepping in to free his daughter from this burden. I don’t think Yuzu crashes the wedding, that’d be too cliché, then again Citrus does have a shitload of clichés so who knows… In all, I am hopeful that it’ll have a happy ending, I mean, come on, it just can’t not end with them together. It could be too that Mei grows a massive pair of woman’s balls and decides to stop it at the last minute, cos some drama can’t hurt, CAN IT?

Actually.. it’s good the story is finally moving, we spent too long watching Mei feel uneasy and unable to express herself, so at least something is going on.

At some point, I thought maybe Matsuri would be good for Yuzu, not like she’s the greatest person on earth but I sorta rooted for her the 5 minutes that it seemed she could be a rival.

It was sweet to see Yuzu’s friends worried about her, cos she’s out there living (this chapter was a time skip, I’m unsure if it’s like 6 months or a year) specially  Shirapon when she notices she stills wears the ring she got for her and Mei (there are 2 rings)

So..in all, I was a bit sad to learn some people go as far as to wish death and illness upon authors when stories don’t go their way, someone mentioned Kodama..ehh NTR author got some serious hate (mostly from the western world) but you know, if you don’t like it, don’t read it, look for other things. I certainly didn’t like nTR but I waited till it ended and read the finale and it was ok, I looked for other works of her and she has some more positive ones, like Renai Manga, so don’t be mean to people, those people writing manga do their best and we all get to enjoy endless worlds and universes thanks to them. We should say thanks.

Nothing left but to keep enjoying all the anime, manga, movies and books that are out there till we know how this one ends, or if we like to, drop it, I won’t, I’m a bit too invested now, but I surely won’t pull my hair about it.

Slow Start ( anime )

Oh my gods, this is a title I don’t think I would of picked myself!! It is thanks to The Yuri Nation  that I decided to pick it up and damn I didn’t stop until the last aired episode!! Before anything, please do check that link out, this guy, the OG man, does a splendid job telling us about all that is yuri and girls related, I’ve found awesome stuff by checking out his site, so if you want to as well, go take a look!

Now, the anime is indeed slowish, but in the best way, think about non non biyori, the characters are cute, I love how  Tama-chan ( the genki girl) throws references to games, specially dating sims, specially when it involves Eiko (I dunno what to make of her but she surely has a way with women, whether she does it on purpose or not) , it’s also funny and charming, funny and sweet, what else could you ask for? Seriously, so far there’s nothing set on stone, but I sorta like Tama/Hana and Eiko/anyone lol.

Kamu,Eiko,Hana and Tama

 

If you like relaxing, enjoyable anime titles, with a hint of subtext (hint? pfff, it’s a bit more than that) and silly stuff going on, please do check it out, it doesn’t seem all that at first but it grows on you, fast, I can’t stop watching, I swear.

The neighbor, Hiroe is also pure gold!

 

Citrus ( anime )

Well, of course I’m going to write about this, I have an entry about the manga, oh about 3 actually..anyway, I knew the anime was coming out but alas! I missed the first 2 episodes but thanks to The Yuri Nation I was aware of this and could get on the Citrus wagon.

Citrus-Anime-visual-02.jpg

So, I know many people think it’s a very overrated series, I’ve been reading manga, specially yuri manga long enough to know it has it’s fair share of clichés and in my opinion too much drama and dragging along the suffering and unsolved issues, then again, the art is so, so gorgeous I can look past that, except those times I want to slap everyone cos they can’t just sit and talk dammit, TALK, but if people could express what they feel or think there wouldn’t be any, or not so many, manga titles I guess so…

So, the anime, I love the seeiyus ( voice actresses ), I think they fit in correctly, I am up to day with the manga and I am super pleased to see they are remaining faithful to the story, including iconic moments and facial expressions, they did well with the art ( except, am I the only one bothered by Yuzu’s reddish knees?) and I have liked hair color options so far.

The intro is quite to the point “you’ll watch yuri, girls kissing, these 2 here, there ya go thanks” so no surprises there

 

 

I don’t know how much can they cover in this season ( am I hoping for more than 1 season? yes) but on the intro there’s even the twins, so we’ll see… will they have a different ending to the manga, which isn’t finished as we speak, but I have the feeling it will soon?

Ah, can’t wait to see what the future holds, but so far I’m pleased beyond reason, haha, of course I got other animes to watch, but that’s a different post, so now, if you like the manga, check out the anime, if you don’t..check it out, Mei is as “aloof” as ever but damn she seems more human when animated, for some reason.

What does the fox say? ( manwah)

I REFUSE to play the song as I write, so “No Lie” by Sean Paul Ft. Dua Lipa feels more like it.

I hope I typed “manwah” correctly, that is as you may know, Korean mangas, duh.  So this one… I started reading it cos, the drawing is pretty, I mean, the girls are fucking gorgeous ok? Look

97

So yes, shallow me fell for the looks, but come on! So, next the story develops, we learn quite quickly it’s a love triangle, a burden 10 years old and a lot of bottled up feelings, of course.

 

The new challenger is this lovely, angelical, true Hollywood like beauty, blond, innocent, a true virgin in all the sense of the word and she’s the image of “deadpan” she seriously , so good. That’s blondie aka Sungji

Sumin is the dark haired older beauty,  she’s this important person with many unsolved issues, I honestly have to say I love her to bits, even when she acted in ways less than healthy, we all been there somehow, or at least I have so I can’t throw my can at her.

Seju, the pink haired woman..atch, it’s sorta easy to hate on her at first, for being in the way of all…but it takes 2 for tango so… let’s just say it’s a rich and complex character, as humans are omg.

tumblr_static_tumblr_static_6nsajdcz2ts84cgkwc08cg0gw_640.png

The love triangle may drag on for longer than needed but I liked how it wasn’t all solved in an unrealistic, easy, painless way. The art, again, is just what I dig, the humour is pure gold and overall it’s a great work, it’s finished now so I won’t spoil anything, please do go and read, expect  a lot of smut sex tho ( hooopla!! ) so maybe don’t read it at work. I usually don’t care much for sex in yuri manga but it’s usually borderline gross ( to be honest ) this tho…the way it’s drawn… it’s really classy and tasteful, plus it made me blush so lol it works.

I loved it also cos there wasn’t silly and unexpected men just being thrown for drama, these girls dig girls, they are true, real-life lesbians.  And it has the refreshing feeling of grown-up women, not teens who may or not may be so sure about what they like. Go team Gaji!! ( I think it’s a woman behind this, or 2, or there is a woman somewhere, extra points for that)

 

The perfect fit + new anime

Ok, I’ll keep this short, you’ve read my endless lists for things I’d desire in a girlfriend and stuff, well, turns out a long time ago I  met someone who made me see all the things I do NOT want and more recently, someone who showed me many things I DO want,  so based on these 2 persons ( L and M)  and of course, ex-honey lion and Texas girl, I came up with what is the closest idea of this person who can share my happiness and stuff. Notice how I said “share happiness” not “make me happy” cos that’s mah job. ( note the analogy of shapes, if you want a triangle, and date a circle, you are fucked, thus it’s important to know what shape you want/need in the first place) so here, in no special order.

1.- Ready to be in a relationship.

2.- Faithful and into monogamy

3.- Lesbian or true bi it’s ok, not curious gals here.

4.-Protective and kind not controlling (ain’t nobody got time for nagging)

5.- NON weed smoker, no drugs actually, thanks.

6.- Beer and Wine are a total and welcomed pleasure to share and enjoy

7.- Definitely sexually aggressive, into kinky stuff if possible *grin*

8.- Fun AF, who likes weird movies, anime, videogames, reading, ya know.

9.- I don’t mind what she eats as long as we respect each other and all that

10.- Well, yes, cute.

11.-  Weird and romantic

12.- Happy with herself, open and true,duh needless to say smart.

I think the shape would be something like this :shape

 

NEW ANIME TO WATCH THIS SUMMER OF 2017

Jigoku Shoujo yoi no togi !! Are you kidding me? I almost fainted when I saw the trailer for this one, I LOVE JS!!

New Game!! : I like the manga and the first anime, they play, so of course.

Gamers: An anime about gaming club? I’m in

Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai Zangeroku: Deadly sins and fallen angels, ecchi but fun as hell and all over the place, hai!

Netsuzou Trap : Ugh, I dislike the “bi girl cheating” plot but, it’s kinda yuri and the animation looks fine so..we’ll see.

Kakeguri: A bunch of manipulative bitches? Sign me up.

 

This is all for now, I am watching Dragon Ball Super cos I haven’t, it’s good, I am pleased.

 

 

 

 

Yuri top couples

I know, it’s mostly yuri lately..so be it! Best genre ever, is it a genre though ? Or a sub-romance genre? Do share your thoughts on that.

Anyways, please do note that I may not include iconical all time favourite couples for the single fact that :

1.- I haven’t watched the anime or read the manga,hence I don’t have an opinion on it

2.- I am not 100% convinced there is something going on,or say I’m not even 90% convinced

3.- They are “gay” for wrong reasons like, mind control, sex spells, magic, old incarnation’s memories ( looking at you Einhart…dunno what to think yet though )

4.- The -undecided ongoing- ones are still on the making so it’s not certain what will be of them

So let’s get to the good stuff , the order is not really meaningful, each pair has a certain charm to me :

1.-  Himawari and Sakurako , two tsunderes make… good comedy with weird touching sweet moments, of course they hail from Yuru Yuri.

2.- Again from Yuru Yuri , Toshino Kyoku!!! and Ayano Segiura ,haha these two crack me up to the core. Love’em( although I know no couple in Yuru Yuri will get serious,that’s for the Yuri Yuri  title, same author,thanks Namori-sensei,100x more yuri )

3.- Ginko and Kureha from Yuri Kuma Arashi, even if a bit troublesome I LOVED the dramatic story injected with social criticism , plus the ending with KISSES and words of eternal love, no need to wear yuri goggles ( I strongly discourage those anyway ) with these two.

4.- Shizuma and Nagisa, Strawberry Panic! They are a lot cuter in the manga though.

5.- Ooichi and Kitakami-san from KanColle, even if it would seem a bit one sided from Ooi’s side, I re-watched and no matter how you look at it, if you don’t like someone you don’t accept such attention or spend so much time with them, or sleep with them on the same bed and stuff. So yeah

6.- Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san , series has same name. Nekoyama is totally in love with Inugami, who is a total pervert airhead but is also a good person and I think she truly loves the cat girl, of course the manga will end when they two acknowledge this without Aki stopping Inu’s advances.

7.-  Sanya and Eila from Strike Witches, these two were so cute…. so cute, specially on the sweet duet musical scene, want a prince charming-like? Call Eila ,but only works for Sanya ❤

8.- Also from Strike Witches. Mio and Minna, it didn’t develop further but at least on Minna’s side there was something… from Mio..HMMM I don’t know… haven’t made up my mind on it.

9.- Kotone and Shizuku from Sakura Trick, they are the only couple that knows what is going on ,too bad they got so little screen time but I loved every second, they have an uber cute special extra on volume 4 in the manga.

10 .- Yuuna and Togo, from Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru,it seemed pretty obvious to me and it’s later confirmed on a visual novel AND by staff ,so there ya go.

11.- KonoSetsu from Negima!! They become partners in the manga and it’s implied they got married to each other since it was on the same year, again, not as official as I would want it but Setsuna surely seemed to be veeery fond of Konoka.

12.- Miharu-sama and Itsuki-senpai from Otome Saku such an amazing couple,kinda weird how they got together but hey it’s hentai manga.

13.- Mutsu and Nagato from KanColle. They still gotta do more but I think it’s a deal.

Now the dubious ones or special cases….

1.- NanoFate… yes the legendary Nanoha&Fate , what why not on the main list??.. Ugh as much as it pains me… I gathered the information..the seiyus playfully gave an interview where they see Fate-chan as a hard working prince for Nanoha while she cooks, the official art has them appear VERY close, in wedding gowns and stuff…they do shared a bed in striker’s and when Nanoha adopted Vivio, Fate-chan decided she’d be Fate-mama ,this should be enough but for some reason I just can’t feel I feel it in my bones, and now on the Vivid series…they may look like an old couple but I dunno, I guessed I expected a bit more of feels between them. In Innocent ( alternative reality manga ) they appear to be…kinda..closer but it’s not the main canon so I don’t know… please bear with me while I decide upon this.

2.- Shizuru and Natsuki, from Mai Otome, I did not watch Mai-Hime and I don’t think I will, I read that in the artbooks it’s confirmed they do get together -_- but that won’t do for me, in Otome tho they appear as an official couple and I liked them.

3.- NicoMaki, from Love,Live! ,I watched the series, I liked it, I LOVE Maki,she’s super awesome, I am waiting for the movie,but I honestly didn’t see  anything there,oh yes like 2 hugs and a valentine’s chokoreto giving scene that’s on a music video… BUT in this case I first read Ooshima Tomo’s doujinshis, and that got me biased, I think they are perfect together ,I can even say that woman kick started my love for doujinshis ( I looked down on them before,for not being canon ) but they give us what main authors refuse to give us!!! So I ship them for the doujinshi not the actual series.

4.- Ru and Yuki from Wixoss, ahh… I loved IONA ,but I won’t spoil anything about that,so yes there’s Tama but hmm I dunno, I loved char development with Yuki and Ru and the ultimate fusion hehe, I hope in the movie we find out about what exactly happened to all of them.

5.- Iona and Aki-lucky, also from Wixoss, I am not sure ,but it seemed they got together, maybe the movie will tell us more.

6.- Homura and Madoka… from Puella Magic Madoka Magica ( ah screw the name is too complicated xD ) .. hmm it’s CLEAR Homura has strong feelings for Madoka( strong enough to become a devil ), I can say I’m 99% sure they are romantic in nature… but the reason why they are on this list is…. I am not sure on Madoka’s feelings for Homura, that’s the problem with nice girls I never know when that usual kindness and friendliness becomes more than that.

7.- Alice and Shino from Kiniro Mosaic, oh my, I put them here cos show is ongoing,but come on body pillow Shino and Alice picturing a wedding, I think those two are super gay,like super gay.

8.- The Ayaya and Yoko, also from Kiniro Mosaic..oh well, it’s pretty clear on Aya’s side but much for our amusement and sometimes despair Yoko is dense as a log and has failed to notice,while Karen being so clever is well aware of it, I hope they throw a bone at Aya at some point.

9.- Inoue and Asami from Re-kan!, a show about a girl who can communicate with ghosts…and the other girl is terrified but won’t admit it, a real good old fashioned tsundere…the cat ships them, the dead ship them… I ship  them too,but it’s ongoing so….

10.-  Yuzu and Mei … Citrus … good grief…. Saburo Uta, please finish the manga properly and stop throwing random love rivals and give Yuzu some balls and give Mei the ability to freaking communicate.  Again, ongoing so… I think the art is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, that may be the main reason I keep on reading xD

Now my most special mention…. yes…. Ichinomiya Eruna-chan from Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyouku.. there’s so so so much talk on the net about this one…she plays dating sit games..with girls, she crushes on cute girls a lot, she seems to have a major crush on Sasai-senpai, she seems really really really gay,but again there are guys in the anime,so we should be cautious… I’d love if if she remained gay tho, she’s a pervert airhead genki girl with a gold heart. I’ve seen fan art shipping her with stupid art club leader… ugh, I hope it’s useless wishful thinking on some people’s mind and not something that will happen…  Anyway, I shall discuss her thoroughly when the show is done.  Unless it goes het then I’m dropping it like it’s hot.

Mikagura.Gakuen.Kumikyoku.full.1839336

I think that’s it, yes I can think of some more, but those are the best in my heart. lol

Oh my how could I almost forget…. special prize for Akaza Akane from Yuru Yuri,  why?

Greatest siscon EVER!!! Just noticed the bear cupcake..pedobear? rofl
