Citrushas announced a broadcast date! The long-awaited yuri anime will start airing in January 2018. The title has an updated official website with the key visual and the first trailer. The main staff has also been announced.
The key visual shows the two main characters. High school girl Yuzu looks like a wild gal, but in reality, she has never been in love. Beside her is the student council president Mei, the role model of Japanese students. Yuzu looks surprised and embarrassed while Mei has a cool look on her face. In the trailer, we find out that Yuzu had to switch schools because her mother got married to Mei’s father, which is why they move in with him and Mei.
Yuzu is voiced by Ayana Taketatsu and Mei is voiced by Minami Tsuda. The two of them don’t start off very well and have to somehow live under the same roof as sisters. It is an interesting start to this pure love story between two girls.
Directing the series is Takeo Takahashi (Spice and Wolf, Tokka: Brave of the Six Flowers). In charge of series composition is Naoki Hayashi (Flip Flappers) and in charge of character design and art direction is Izuro Ijuuin. Lantis is producing the music and Passione (Hinako Note) is the producing studio. The rest of the cast is Yukiyo Fujii as Harumi Taniguchi, Yurika Kubo as Himeko Momokino, Shiori Izawa as Matsuri Mizusawa, and Ikumi Hayama as Kayo Maruta.
Citrus is based on a manga by Saburouta, which is currently being serialized in the Monthly Comic Yuri Hime. It is the story of love that blossoms between two step-sisters. So far, 7 volumes have been released, selling a total of 800,000 copies.
