Yuzu Aihara is a girl who loves fashion and is always worried about her appearance. She likes to go out with her friends, but has never kissed or dated anyone before. But her life turns upside down when her mother remarries and Yuzu is transferred to a very strict all-girls school, where she can't wear makeup and earrings or even bring a cellphone. Deciding to rebel, she dresses how she likes on her first day, and because of that, she is called out in front of the entire school by the student council president: Mei Aihara, a girl who is the complete opposite of Yuzu.

To make her situation worse, when Yuzu gets home, she finds out that she has a new sister, and it turns out to be none other than Mei herself. Annoyed with the circumstances, the student council president kisses her, in an effort to prove a point. However, everything changes when Yuzu seems to like it and can't stop thinking about it.

Citrus was a trip to my heart, and in the end, I am delighted to have the opportunity to read it.

Citrus manga and anime are not for all the tastes. Sadly, most of the readers will divide themselves into yuri lovers and yuri detractors. However, Citrus is more profound, a mere comparison of being or not a yuri manga would not be fair with a love story that could transcend in the heart of any open reader. The moral of the story “Love does not have boundaries.” You cannot throw the manga away for being a lesbian story, but it is not for all the read more

Citrus is one of the popular Yuri Manga and I can somewhat understand the hype surrounding it because it's actually pretty damn good. Now I read the Manga after watching the Anime and honestly the chapters after the point where the Anime ended were much better and way less Ecchi.

I don't think I need to go into details since you'll already know the story for this. Yuzu, a girl who is all in for fashion and romance goes into highschool which turned out "All girls" where she encountered a girl named Mei which later was revealed as her new "sister", not blood-realeted of read more

This is my review for Citrus. I'll be referring to the characters by what they are most commonly called in the manga. Please note that this review is structured around how I personally felt about the manga; objectively, it deserves an overall rating of 6 (individual ratings being 5/10/4 for story, art, and character, respectively), but subjectively, I give it a 7.

Story: 5/10

Citrus does not have a very extravagant plot. However, due to the fact it falls in the yuri genre, it doesn't need to have one. This isn't to say that every yuri manga does not have a great plot; a reader does not read more
