They both explore human feelings and relationships in a realistic way. They both revolve a lot around trust and the fears people have when trying to connect with others while desperately protecting thenselves from getting hurt. They both deal with destructive relationships, and thwy explore the reasons and paths that lies behind people's actions and personalities. They both feel very real and heartwarming, while not being afraid to show the darker aspects of life. If you like one - definitely watch the other! They're both really refreshing compared to a lot of the anime that's made today, in that they have a lot of depth  read more

A love story between sister If you dislike citrus because the storyline is too much forced or uncomfortable with NSWF scenes, I suggest to watch candy boy as an alternative.

NTR & Citrus are both Yuri series focusing on the developing relationships of two school girls. NTR focuses mainly on two girls who are in relationships with boys but secretly like each other. While Citrus focuses on two girls who are also step sisters who develop feelings for each other over time. They both have sexual scenes but NTR is more heavy on it than Citrus. NTR & Citrus both have high drama & suspenseful chapters. Also, aesthetically, a blonde girl is in love with a black haired girl (my favorite trope)

Anyone who enjoyed watching Oreimo will definitely enjoy watching Citrus, since Citrus is basically Kirino's dream of having a little sister come true. Kirino and Yuzu, the protagonist of Citrus, have almost the same exact voice as well as similar styles, so it's rather easy to imagine Yuzu being Kirino.

Yagate Kimi ni Naru is a great Shoujo Ai and contains all the features of a forbidden lesbian relationship in a very conservative Japanese culture. Unlike the forbidden step-sister love of Citrus, Yagate Kimi ni Naru is confined to a first-year high schooler and her Senpai. I definitely recommend watching both.

Contains a pure and strong love between two girls. Plus we have a sister incest. but warning, this is for +18.

Both are vastly different but still contain the main character who is a gyaru. Both MCs are seen as "naughty" or are perceived in a negative light, even though the truth is quite different. However, Citrus is a shoujo-ai romance and Galko-chan is a short comedy.

A funny Yuri version. despite the comedy, we have romantic and serious moments of affection. But it disappoints because we don't have a real pairing

They both explore human relationships an adolescence in a realistic way. Two of the best yuri animes around, along with Strawberry Panic and Simoun.

Although not shoujo ai it's a great romance story. Much better, because it has the airing time to deliver much more about characters and story. Yuzu has somewhat similiar personality to Komatsu Nana and maybe I liked Citrus much more because of that similarity.

A love story between sister Unlike citrus, marimete do not use sexual approach as part of plot story. You can see how Yumi-Sachiko build relationship as sister is much more realistic compared with Yuzu-Mei.

They both deal with relationships and feelings on a level that's rare to find in anime. They both show the dark aspects as well as the lighter sides of life, and they both have well thought-out characters. I would definitely recommend them both!

Both take place at strict girls only schools. The main characters in both shows fall for a girl who are emotionally unavailable due to their past. The MCs are similar but Yuzu in Citrus is a lot more outspoken and assertive. Their love interests both have a facade towards people. Both shows have layered and well-balanced characters (Citrus a bit more so). They deal with problematic relationship dynamics in a good way. They both turn out really heartwarming and enlightening as we get further into the series. If you like one of these two - definitely give the other one a shot!

Both sweet shows that explore the romantic feelings between girls in a realistic and balanced way. Citrus is a bit darker, but they're both heartwarming and real.
