The official website for the anime adaptation of Saburouta’s Citrus manga has revealed the first visual for the upcoming yuri series. The new visual features main characters Mei and Yuzu in a rather saucy pose.
The new visual was unveiled at the recent AnimeJapan event in late March. Aside from the visual, no other details about the adaptation, including its format and broadcast window, were revealed.
Japanese manga publisher Ichijinsha first opened up about the anime project in September 2015. The company mentioned on Twitter that they were currently looking into partnering up with a company that would help them produce an anime based on the manga.
Here is the promotional video for the manga:
Citrus is a yuri romance 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 5 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 about the yuri manga Citrus is coming our way. Additional information about the series will be revealed at a later date.
