Don’t worry guys, this is not going to be a “Life after Citrus” kind of post. I have to admit that I feel a little lost after the show has ended, seeing that the one anime I’ve been waiting to air for years has come to an end now. But this is supposed to be a different post.
I’d simply like to talk about what comes next after Citrus has ended, or let’s just say after the first (of possibly more) season has come to an end.
I see the Citrus anime as a milestone, and maybe even a turning point for the genre. But let’s approach this from a different point, its source material. I don’t know the numbers, but even—or should I say especially—the manga was, and still is, a fan favorite. We can especially see it in the amount of people showing interest in the work, talking about it, and, of course, also ranting about it. Despite the ranting kind of engagement, Citrus mostly received positive feedback, and some people even began their yuri journey with it.
After having talked about the highlights as well as all the things that were already announced that we can look forward to in 2018, why not talk about our wishes for this year as well?
So far, we can definitely not complain about the amount of things we already know will hit us this year. However, as greedy as it might sound, there’s always more things the community might want, so today, let’s focus on all the things that might or might not follow or happen as 2018 drags along.
First up, as the Citrus anime is basically right around the corner, especially after the disappointment of last year’s anime adaptation of Netsuzou TRap, what we need right now is a yuri anime that does its job right. One that might finally attract more viewers, actually sells a decent amount of copies, and simply gains enough attention, in a positive way, if I might add.
It’s that time of the month again, news time! We have a mixed bag of all sorts of news for you, some a little older, some pretty new. Let’s start~
Ne No Kami – The Two Princess Knights of Kyoto Part 2 was just released and is now available for purchase on Denpasoft and Steam. There’s also an uncensored patch available (only for the Steam version). You can get it here.
For those interested, here’s Part 1 as well. Get it on Steam or Denpasoft.
Let’s just use this opportunity to talk about the most popular yuri manga and manhwa that are out right now.
Since this is a “Let’s Talk About…” post, please feel free to take part in this little discussion by, for example, writing your own thoughts on some or all of the listed works, or by listing some more.
Let’s start with what I think might still be the biggest and most popular Yuri Manga out there, Citrus.
Yeah, well, I surely won’t miss out on any opportunity to talk more about this Manga, will I? 😛
Title: She, Her Camera, and Her Seasons Artist: Tsukiko Genre: Love Triangle, Drama, School Life, Yuri Description: Akari is a rather poor high school girl who has to work hard after school to help out her family. In her circle of friends she doesn’t really feel like she fits in, as the usual topics of conversation bore her rather than make her want to take part in it. One day, she finds an opportunity to talk to the mysterious Yuki, a member of the photography club, who then pulls her along and shows her a whole other world.
I just recently found this gem among the many awesome yuri manga that are running right now. I guess I’m not a fan of love triangles, especially not if a guy is involved in all of this, though Kano Came managed to pull me in deeply. I can’t help but love the girls’ relationship and root from in front of my laptop screen. So far, this has seriously been an awesome read, and I demand more!
