Episodes: 12 Start date: End date:

Description

Fashionable Yuzu imagined the first day at her new school she transferred to after her mother`s remarriage a bit differently; she didn`t know it`d be an ultra-strict and conservative girls` school. So instead of a sweet high-school romance, she butts heads with the stern student council president Mei - who turns out to be her new stepsister. And she has to learn that hate and attraction are often not that far apart.

So personally, I never got around to reading the manga. So this review will only be about the Anime premier itself, anyway let's continue. 

Citrus was a Anime I found out about from a friend, and I watched all the episodes on Youtube (Not sure if they are on there anymore). Of course this Anime is pretty much a Yuri (WLW) based Anime, where 2 girls find romantic feelings for eachother...not much of a shocker, but they are also stepsisters. Which it added a bit of a odd twist when you find out about this Anime not knowing what it is about. If you read the Manga, you probably -- or already knew about this. In my personal opinion, I find it not TOO weird that two "stepsisters" develop romantic feelings for each other, but nonetheless it can be a little bit weird in today's modern times. Oh boy...get ready for those keyboard warriors..

The Anime itself has...well, nothing too special about it when it comes to plotline, considering the protagonist Yuzu Aihara falls in love with Mei Aihara by stumbling across her at a new school Yuzu went to. While stumbling across Mei Aihara, both of the girls come into a...uhm..."PHYSICAL ALTERCATION" which makes the Protagonist (we will refer to Yuzu as the Protag for now) confused and flustered. Which of course is another trope used..."OMG I WAS TOUCHED BY THIS CUTE GIRL NOW I FEEL SOMETHING". And you know, you might be into that, you might not be. 

What really made this Anime a 6 stars was...well the WLW theme of it. I have a soft spot for Yuri Animes, because sometimes despite the tropes, they can really have a heartwarming side to them. For example, the end of Citrus, when the Protag and her Romantic Interest found each other again, they fully committed to each other's love and it ended the Anime on a good note. 

So in conclusion, this Anime has some tropes in it, but in the end you find the weird step-sisterly love thing sorta heartwarming when it comes to the ending.
