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.

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.

SUPER SPOILER POST, STAY AWAY IF YOU ARE READING CITRUS OR WATCHING YURIKUMA ARASHI AND/OR KANCOLLE!!!!





Ok don’t say I didn’t tell ya, I thought I’d keep this to myself,but no, I’m gonna rant a bit.

Citrus : I had the chance to read the rough subs for chapter 15… -rolls eyes for 40 minutes- stupid Mei did accept going out with Sara ( short twin ) why? Cos it makes PERFECT sense to date a complete stranger instead to at least trying to talk about the whole lot of things that have been going on with your “stepsister” , that you obviously love, who has tried to show you her love in many ways,ah right you did offer your body to her since she was “nice to grandpa and brought you closer to your dad,that you stubborn ass didn’t want to talk to for ages” COME ON,of course she would be confused, you should first tell her you love her or something,then proceed to have sex/make love. she didn’t reject you!! I seriously don’t know what Mei needs Yuzu to tell her… and if she ONLY needs someone who -needs- her, she may as well fuck herself, but what would Yuzu do.. hmm, I still think even blackmailing Matsuri is better, with Yuzu she’d set a straight path. So let us hope Yuzu makes it on time to prevent Sara and Mei from kissing,and kisses Mei instead,or someone dies cos this is getting ridiculous.

Yurikuma Arashi: …Lulu apparently died, saving Ginko from a bullet from Kuma killing team whatever, while trying to open her heart to freaking Kureha,who still was “rejecting” her, half heartedly, I think only cos she didn’t wanna suffer anymore,duh ( you could of warned her of the trap,if you had any idea,you know?! ),so Ginko tells her everything that happened…-sighs- I kinda hoped she’d just go and try to be happy on her own ( Lulu) cos..well I do want Ginko and Kureha together, I mean,there’s a book and all…and Lulu can go to bear heaven and meet her lil bro,next is final episode,so they better have that stupid promised kiss and are like, queens of Bearhumanland,a new formed world where everyone coexists, or Kureha is turned into a bear,or Ginko a human ,or they have a humanbear baby or something. but they must kiss,they must!! kudos to Ginko for overcoming selfish desire on her own!!

KanColle : At this point everyone may be pretty fucked up…if everyone died…well what kind of anime is that? It’d be interesting..I GUESS,but not this one T_T at least not freaking Kitakami-san…ah but you had to separate the lesbian couple,didn’t you? It looked like she was a goner,but I expect a deus ex machina so Fubuki and Ooichi and everyone makes it on time and everything is ok.  -sighs-

My only happiness left is Strike Witches,haha it ended up being very endearing, Eila and Sanya omg , SO CUTE. Minna and Mio ,kudos for dramatic relationship. The rest are all ok. Gonna watch the movie in a bit,weeee.

Citrus ( ahhhhgggggggggggn! )

It’s frustrating me…even tho,now that I am commenting about the latest chapter,someone threw a very interesting  theory…if that’s not it,then it’s the “New rival,appears!,wild drama arises,brief closing in,wtf separated by misunderstandings again…wash,rinse,repeat” if that is so I will wait for freaking manga to end, man I think I’d even prefer Yuzu to end up with Matsuri, she’s a brat but she doesn’t go around being silly,she can say exactly what she means.

I wonder how long is the manga intended to be….

Gee.

I keep reading it cos I do like Yuzu,and the art I find super beautiful.

gotta love the art.

gotta love the art.

Citrus ; a while later

Fine, I still like character design, but the story… it just won’t get anywhere, in the latest chapter, before the special, we are shocked ( not at all ) by.. yeah one more love rival!! Another girl, ah who has a sister, ( who wants to bet said sister will fall for Yuzu since the other one fell for Mei?) .. I know how common love triangles are and misunderstandings and very complicated, sometimes outta the blue problems for protagonists are,in most yuri titles, but this is seriously getting on my nerves… it has several chapters now and it doesn’t seem to end anytime soon, I wonder what will Mr. or is it Mrs.? Saburo Uta has in mind?

Yuzu is our classic protagonist, she doesn’t know shit about,well many things, love included,she is a bit of an airhead,she eats a lot, she is outgoing and a bit clumsy…a simple girl , then we have Mei, she..well she’s a bitch so far, yeah yeah bad relationship with father, she puts way too much pressure on herself,she’s way too uptight and she seems cold and emotionless… eh do I sense something here…did I mention Mei is rich..seitokaichou! and has long black hair? Meh enough tropes here for the day.

I’ll continue to read of course but I hope we finally get some sense kicked into Mei and Yuzu grows a pair to properly convey her feelings. Gee.

Yuri manga

So,I’m back to it, this summer I might get not 1 but 2 part/time jobs and also the food selling is somehow working, still got time to kill so, I started to read a lot of manga,since my series are over ( wtf Akuma no riddle…will review your ending later ) Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san is being merely ok ( hurry manga hurry ) and Citrus is sadly only on manga and it comes out every 2 freaking months  T_T

Ok so I’ve read tons of yuri titles of course, and most make no sense ( except for girlfriends, shoujo sect, citrus and others ) I mean, it’s the one-sided crush usually, that magically turns into a mutual crush, then ,usually, they just jump in for sex, UNLESS it’s not even that , they just meet and go for it!

There is this one, “Orange sunset on lips” or something like it ( what a title ) this girl develops a crush on the new comer who is fancy and all coming from the big city ( omg so original ) Kanae, so she starts buying the same things Kanae has, the mobile plushie, the lipstick…she even buys a freaking wig A WIG,she puts it on ( Kanae is of course blonde ) and ..well gets off,while thinking about the other girl…wearing a wig… that’s rather creepy xD  Then of course they become “friends” or something and Kanae has this secret crush on the creepy girl ( huh? ) so she kisses her, she finds out about her creepy habits, and they have sex and end up being…I don’t know what the hell they are but seriously, it came out of the blue, you can just like someone, I get that, but being in love with someone you only see to walk home with… Or I’m a romanticless biatch or japanese people are just easy to engage.

Most mangas run the same course, “Hi..crush..sex” others make you wait for it, the story has great development and there are plot twists and stuff like that,but oh well, will continue looking for more mangas to read, there was one that seemed super nice, but it was dropped, I refuse to read it due to that.

 

The image corresponds to the manga title “Citrus” AMAZING, it’s all so difficult but heart warming and it gets more and more complicated..agh I guess things that come so easy aren’t as special or worth mentioning…anyway it’s an awesome title go read,read it now.
