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~
