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.
It’s barely April, and we have yet another News Update ready, and it’s such a big one even! We seriously never had a year with more awesome yuri news than this one.
Let’s hope it continues that way!
First up, after quite a long wait, we finally got the results for Mangagamer’s annual licensing survey. And who would have guessed, our favorite genre is standing strong again!
The Sono Hanabira series is now in second place, and newcomer Kotonoha Amrilato made it onto the list, too.
All in all, I think we can be quite pleased with the results. But take a look for yourself, and see the full post over at Mangagamer.
For those who haven’t heard about this yet, what it means is simply that chances are very high that we will get some more official translations. Not only for more Sono Hanabira installments, but also possibly for other yuri visual novels~
Was this one of the Yuri manga that got a lot of votes in that anime adaptation voting thing from February? Didn’t think the world was yet ready to see this get adapted but it’s happening so…okay then.
Title: Pulse Artist: Ratana Satis Genre: Yuri, Age Gap, NSFW, Drama Description:
Mel, a renowned heart surgeon, lives a carefree life with sex being a tool for joy rather than a show of affection. Then she meets someone that turns her view of love and life upside down. This story is about two people that meet with minimal expectations but soon become enthralled in a relationship that changes everything about themselves.
I just started reading this one recently, and oh my god, do I love it. I guess I started loving age gap stories, and I am a sucker for full-color works, though, what I love most about this is the couple itself; Tough seductress, Mel and cutie with a tragic past, Lynn. It’s just the best! Seeing them interact, with Lynn just barging into Mel’s personal bubble with everything she does and Mel failing to do anything about it, but still trying to keep her cool… it’s fantastic! Go read it!
