Okay guys, it’s happening! Not only will we get some more yuri shows to enjoy next year, it will be none other than Citrus and Netsuzou Trap!
The news spread like wildfire through the yuri community this morning, so let me just give you the facts we already got:
In casting news, Daisuki Ono (Erwin in Shingeki no Kyojin, Satou in Working!!, Satou in A-Channel, etc.) has been cast as Hotaru’s boyfriend, Fujiwara, while Ryota Osaka (Marco in Shingeki no Kyojin, Ryou in Shinsekai yori, Sugane in Gatchaman Crowds, etc.) is set to play Takeda, Yuma’s boyfriend.
Comic Yuri Hime will have more information on Netsuzou Trap‘s anime adaptation in their January 2017 issue, which is set for Friday.
In a joint interview conducted by Comic Natalie with Naoko Kodama and Saburouta, it was also revealed that an anime adaptation of Saburouta’s Citrus is in production.
There is currently no more information available, though that will change pretty soon, so let’s just stay tuned till Friday and use the remaining time to hype a little~
Well, I do know that many of you will not be too happy with these choices, though, keep in mind that especially Citrus has a huge fanbase supporting it, which hopefully increases the chances of the anime version actually doing well. In order to get more yuri shows, the right people need to see that there actually is a demand and that shows featuring this genre are doing well. We can’t deny that Citrus is the biggest yuri manga around right now, so at least I believe that this might be a great chance for this genre to get bigger. Though, let’s talk about that in another post.
Personally, I love both manga, so I’m extremely happy right now. I also think that with the given stories, we might finally get what I believe the community needs to see the most, especially after shows like Sakura Trick and Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san. What I’m talking about is a full yuri show that features some drama, a romance, but is more on the serious side. We admittedly haven’t had many of those over the last few years, and thinking about it some more just makes me realize that we didn’t get many shows like this in general.
Now we can look forward to two more, awesome!
