Citrus Anime Adaptation Premiere, Main Staff, First PV Revealed

citrus yuri anime

Ever since it was first announced back in November 2016, details surrounding the Citrus anime adaptation have been few and far between. Back in June, we learned that the seiyuus from the Drama CD would be reprising their roles, and now, the studio, starting date, main staff, and first PV have been revealed!

Set to begin airing in January, Citrus will be helmed by Takeo Takahashi (Spice and Wolf, Rokka no Yuusha, Hinako Note) at studio Passione. The scripts will be overseen by Naoki Hayashi (Flip Flappers, Da Capo 3), and Izuro Ijuuin (Barakamon, Working!!!) will be designing the characters and serving as the chief animation director.

Each of these staff members have done some good work, and after seeing the PV, I think this adaptation is already looking far more promising than Netsuzou TRap ever did. Take a look~

It still isn’t known if this will be a full-length anime, nor how many episodes this will entail, but the hype train has officially hit overdrive, and you should be very, very excited. The next four months will be an excruciatingly long wait, but come January, it’s looking like we’ll finally get another pure yuri anime that’s worth all the hype.

With Citrus and another Kase-san anime project in the works, 2018 is already looking great, and the best part is, it can only get better! Time will tell what other yuri anime will come our way next year, but get ready, because I think it’s going to be a pretty great year to be a yuri fan~

  1. What a way to start a new month! 😀 It’s about time we got a preview and this trailer did not let me down! for the first time in my life I want October, November and December to be over already so it can be 2018 already! IS IT JANUARY YET?!?!?! 😀

  2. I really hope they give Yuzu a new hairstyle every half episode like they do in the manga. If they do that, I’ll be happy.

    Looks good though! I’m surprised at how not-terrible it looks, and how decent the staff is behind it, even though the studio themselves are low on good experience.

    • Despite my, let’s call it problem, to jump on the hype train too early, I’m very pleased to find that this actually looks like it’s worth its hype. I guess it could all be a little more fluid when it comes to the movements of the characters, but man this looks SO much better than NTR, so I just can’t and won’t complain about anything.

      • If nothing else, I know the Harumin scenes will be wonderful animated. I’m also looking forward to Yuzu possibly having different hairstyles each episode (or every morning). Not a Mei fan but you already know that. Maybe in animated form she’ll be less of a robot and make me go “Yeah. Yuzu has good taste”.

        Like I said, HOPEFULLY seeing the show’s events animated will help me appreciate the series a wee bit more…maybe.

  3. Finally! I’m so stoked about this! I love the manga, and wasn’t really expecting much. But the animation is so smooth! And the direction of everything was great! I mean, it seems so perfect. Even the soundtrack! Now we can only hope that it sticks close to the manga! : )

      • yep and the best part is there already is a moment between mari and kanan that was shown in the new season 2 trailer, it was just so damn cute!!! now im hoping some of my other ships get their moments


  5. Due to the sparse and sporadic information since its announcement, I was predicting, or more specifically proposing an educated speculation that this anime adaptation would be delayed to next year and would not make its broad 2017 release window. Judging from this article it appears my educated speculation was correct. Still hyped. 2017 is still shaping up to be a pretty good year for the genre. Perhaps, we can see some surprises for the fall season.

  6. I haven’t read the manga yet. So I don’t know how I feel. Looks good? Heh. 😆 I don’t know how I feel about the super physical Yuri, but I might pick up the first volume just to see. It’s only 10ish bucks.
