In case you missed our numerous posts about this show, let me simply repeat myself: This anime was probably how many of us imagined the manga coming to life. The perfect voice acting and fluid animation surely proved that after seasons of low budget yuri shows and having to live with mostly yuri subtext in general, the slightly longer wait for this one was definitely worth it.

Even people who didn’t enjoy the manga came to appreciate what the anime version had to offer, and I absolutely see why. While the drama level might be as high as in the manga and while Mei might still seem like a cold-hearted idiot, the anime provided us with a slightly different view, and that was much needed. Kisses suddenly don’t seem random anymore, and you can see a purpose behind them that is not only to look good or reach the required yuri-level in each and every chapter/episode.

Well, it of course also comes with the drawbacks of sometimes being too fast-paced, lacking in animation quality, at times, and, of course, not being able to match the amazing art style of the manga. But all in all, this was a very, very worthy anime adaptation that many of us came to love. WE NEED A SECOND SEASON!

Since my most recent post is a full first impression of the first episode of Citrus, I guess I don’t have that much left to say other than YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES, THIS LOOKS AWESOME!!!

Okay, I composed myself again. So to put it in a less fangirly tone, let’s just say that the anime adaptation has thus far exceeded my expectations by quite a bit. When it comes to yuri anime, the quality of the animation, the quality of the voice acting performances, and, of course, the direction and pacing of this first episode, simply felt like something we haven’t gotten at all lately. It’s about time Citrus finally saves the day!
