Citrus – yuri without ice

Two posts with a title that contains Yuri on Ice in some form. I wonder if I can stretch it even farther.

BUT!

Rejoice, my fellow clansmen! Citrus has arrived and it’s straight up yuri. It’s got Ayana Taketatsu voicing our peppy pseudo-gyaru Aihara Yuzu. And Mei is voiced by Minami Tsuda, who notably has starred in Yuruyuri. Really, if it weren’t for the obvious marketing for the show (and the super spoiler that is the OP) and art style I would have been able to go into this blind and have an even bigger reaction to the very first hint of the yuri seven minutes in.

Not much to go on as of this episode. Other than noticing that Yuzu’s mother seems to be pretty strong since she handily lifted a box that Yuzu had trouble getting off the ground, even though they both seemed to have similar body frame and size. I suppose one could say she’s a strong and independent woman… WHO DON’T NEED NO-

The teacher isn’t given much of an introduction. The beginning is already pinning him as a target for our disgust. It’s a bummer because again, plot-wise it seems too much like rote and routine just so we can get our yuri on. (I ain’t complaining.)

I am heavily breathing in anticipation of the next episode already. I don’t think I really need to try and convince others to watch. It’s yuri, and those who desire it shall find and bask in its glory.
