Citrus by Saburo Uta

Post by monmon on Thu Aug 15, 2013 4:48 am



Recently discovered this manga due to its increased popularity. Although I'm a relatively new reader to yuri manga, I can tell it's quickly becoming one of my favorites.
As a result of her mother's new marriage, gyaru girl Yuzu is forced to move houses. Ever the optimist, this fails to faze her; maybe she'll finally find a boyfriend at her new school!

Unfortunately, no one told Yuzu she would be attending a super-conservative all-girls academy.

So instead of a sweet high-school romance, she butts heads with the stern student council president Mei—who turns out to be her new stepsister. In spite of all the chaos and confusion, Yuzu quickly learns that there is a very thin line between love and attraction.
This manga's got everything I look for in a story: good art, good character designs, girls pushing girls down, and loads of sexual tension. giggity 

But, oh! These two totally remind me of Minako/Rei from the Sailor Moon manga. Loud, obnoxious boy-crazy blonde that's unlucky in love? Check. Sexy and aloof dark-haired girl that's basically the idol of an all-girls academy? Double check.



(slightly spoiler-ish from here on out)

I totally forgot it was under the yuri tag when I first opened it up on Dynasty. My reactions went something like this..

Page 1: Oh, a shoujo about a girl who can get boyfriends. Okay..
Pages 2+3: HOLY MOTHER IS THIS A YURI (eagerness to read 'mysteriously' triples)

Anyways, one of my favorite things about this story is the characterization. Nobody is what they seem.

My first impression of Yuzu was that of a badass who could string boys along like nothing—however, she's never had a boyfriend, and is actually rather innocent.

Mei comes off as the stern and prudish student council president..
Spoiler:
who's been fooling around with Yuzu's homeroom teacher, and is actually quite sexually aggressive.

The chapters come out bi-monthly. Five are out right now, with the first four on Dynasty and the fifth on the-eproject. I'd love to hear your guys' opinions on the story!

Also, off-topic: First Mai-HiME, Love Lab, and now this? I don't believe I've ever watched a series where the student council president wasn't at least a little gay. Natsuki Kruger2

Hehe, you've read all five? If so, then I've got a stupid question I've been wanting to ask FOREVER:

Why do you think Mei up and hugged Yuzu in the first chapter? She even lifted her shirt a little; was that where she was keeping her phone?

I thought Mei only started to get sexual in order to shut Yuzu up about the teacher. But if Mei always hugs students who disobey.. pretty sure the school wouldn't be quite as orderly. Shizuru Fujino

Mmm, hard question...
I don't think she is a Shizuma like ><
I don't feel like she hugs every students at their first encounter...
But then, I don't either think she was attracted to Yuzu at the beggining...
Perhaps was it just to pick her phone and a little fanservice from Saburo Uta :scratch: ?
I'm still confused...

Ehe, me too! I refuse to believe she likes Yuzu ~that way~ yet. Girl's probably never been in love. Although, I get the feeling that she totally read through Yuzu's manga at the very end of chapter 4.. even though Yuzu herself stopped reading at the 'intense' part. Wonder what she thought about it?

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THAT !
What a naughty girl XD !
I'm quite confused with Mei, I can't read through her mind yet...
I think her feelings are growing up, but she just wouldn't admit. Maybe 'cause she's the rich chairman's gran-daughter and has some kind of obligations du to her status ?
But I don't think grandpa is so horrible... I think it's Mei who puts herself a huge pressure. Don't know why, though...

Yes, she seems to equally care for both her father and grandfather, which is a strange case because the latter two appear to be estranged. The grandfather never caught word of his son's remarriage. But the grandfather has eased off as of chapter 4, and Mei's father seems like a weirdo to begin with, so why is Mei still tense as plank of wood? Where does all that pressure come from?

Also, the whole engagement thing is confusing. I assumed that the grandfather had arranged it, but he seemed pretty pissed once Yuzu announced she had caught them frenching. I mean, he immediately took Yuzu's word over Amemiya's, so does that mean he never trusted him in the first place?

Ah, so many questions! How did Yuzu's mom even meet Mei's dad if his own daughter hadn't seen him in over five years? Online dating? Why wasn't Mei surprised to find out that that delinquent girl from earlier was actually her stepsister? How did drill girl not understand that they were stepsisters even though she was shouting "AIHARA YUZU" for three pages straight?

I swear, they just need to give us Mei's POV. It would probably fill a number of plotholes and put my mind at ease.

Sure !
The father and the gandfather are so weirdo !
I don't know how Yuzu's mom managed to marry Mei's dad. I mean the grandfather seems to be the elite type. So I don't know how he could allow his son to marry someone who is not rich... Then why is the father gone from home for 5 years letting Mei alone ? And he doen't seem to be ready to come back home since he's gone far away...
And then, we don't know a centimeter of Mei's mom... Where is she ? Is she dead ? Is she gone with another man ?
They don't seem to be close in Mei's family. But she seems to really care for her grandfather, even if he is quite rough...

Though, Mei seems to be very sad and lonely. Wanna know her past, drama smell for kms !

O.k. Now that I've read it I must say is quite interesting. Even though I hate drill-hair girl now.
Spoiler:
Specially after she practically forced herself on Mei just because she was jealous of Yuzu. Ugh, such a vile creature...

I still can't figure out Mei at all. This manga looks promising. I just wish it didn't come out bimonthly... XD

Mm... if I had to take a guess... I'd say Mei is the kind of person who is actually really impulsive and ends up doing things without really thinking it through. That being said, since she's the quiet type and seems calculative, the readers may think that she actually has reason or logic behind her actions when she doesn't. Like the part where she hugs Yuzu to take her cellphone. She probably just felt like teasing her or catching her off-guard, especially given how Yuzu was dressed and stuff... so she did it without really thinking too much into it.

As for the deeper issue... Mei has probably never experienced anything romantic in her life because when she was younger, parental love has escaped her. She's just hiding in her shell.. pretending that everything is okay when it isn't. She's stuck in time... in the time where her father had left her and she was placed in her grandfather's care. She does what is expected of her and continues to live life in a trance... because she still hasn't gotten over her father leaving or something... maybe.

That's my theory... dunno how sound it is though.

Countdown five days to release of chapter 7 xDDDDD
I'll prolly stalk the peeps over at Yuri project to get some quality raws that day *shifty eyes*

Anyway about citrus.

Mei is sextrated and hot and Yuzu is super duper adorable and needs to get laid.
Mei should stop being all 'hot and cold' already coz I feel bad for Yuzu ;v;

I hope Yuzu has someone from her past coming into the spotlight that made Mei feel insecure about their relationship or something, coz I just feel bad for the girl lol.

And the art is so good though *happy sigh* saburouta's twitter gets bombarded by fans for doodles and the man did not disappoint. These are the doodles he posted on his twitter (and yes I'm following him >>).



Translated ver. below



Something he posted during Mei's bday in sept




And this was for Yuzu's bday in august. She's older by a month lol






Translated ver








AND THAT'S ALL FOLKS.
