An Anime Adaptation of Yuri Manga Citrus Is Possible

Japanese manga publisher Ichijinsha has announced that Saburouta’s Citrus manga could very well be adapted into an anime series. The publisher posted on Twitter stating that it is currently in negotiations with various companies about the possible adaptation.


The publisher has mentioned that they are currently looking into partnering up with a company that would help them produce an anime based on the manga. They are currently recruiting anyone who does want to make Citrus into an anime, but no concrete plans have been made so far.

Here is the promotional video for the manga:

Citrus is a Yuri manga written and illustrated by Saburouta. The series began in November 2012 being published in Ichijinsha’s Comic Yuri Hime magazine. To date a total of 4 volumes have been compiled and published. A drama CD of the series was released with the latest volume, which released in Japan on July 18 this year.

Here is the synopsis of the series from MAL:

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 step sister. And she has to learn that hate and attraction are often not that far apart.

An anime adaptation of Citrus has not yet been announced, but Ichijinsha is looking into partnering up to produce one. Further details about the series will be revealed in the near future.
