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.

The "Love" in "Girls Love":
Citrus' romance is about 5% love, 95% drama, and a wealthy dose of poison, since it is based on trauma and lust, while nurtured by addiction and obsession. The protagonists' appeal relies on how convenient and pitiful they find each other to be.

The "Girls" in "Girls Love":
Nowhere to be found. At any given moment, the fact that they are two girls is utterly inconsequential. The story works as fine with two boys or with a regular couple, since the issue that drives the plot is class and, secondarily, family; not gender.

Not-so-forbidden Love
No one in this manga cares. Every problem involving other ...

Creator: Let's make a school romance series like all the rest, but make the main couple lesbian.

Me: Yes.

Creator: Let's make it take place in all girls school.

Me: No.

Creator: Yes. And all the girls there are lesbians. Also all the girls who don't go there are lesbians.
