Author decided to break the sound barrier and end the story just like that? Like, cool I guess but it's literally what everyone theorized but less. Yuzi goes to save Mei, Mei breaks down yada yada boom, marriage.
It seems like such a soulless ending imo
But while Citrus had major roadbumps, I'm happy that Yuzu (and Mei I guess...) got the joy she deserves
I think the basis of hate Mei has been receiving is based on perspective, really.
I've adored Yuzu since the first ever chapter and I grown to love her even more now, with Mei though, there's something that never clicked with me and her. Maybe because I think she's an individual who refuses to love and be loved
Flip it around and you notice that Mei is misunderstood, she loves Yuzu, you cannot deny that she does, even says it in the letter in a subtle way. She was just being selfish all these volumes because she yearns for Yuzu's love but could never truly accept it and be with her because of her "dreams"(I call it an arranged obligation)
I do think Mei made a rational choice with the letter and then secretly leaving but I'm worried for Yuzu. First she's incredibly sensitive and probably had to deal with suicidal tendencies and depression when she recieved the letter and she'll find someway to interfere with Mei's "dream" again.
I agree most when Mei stated she was immature. She has never been able to respond properly to Yuzu's feelings and instead dragged her along for Mei's own selfish desires.
It's unfair to Yuzu and it's unforgivable to part ways with the only person that loves you unconditionally with a note. Mei might as well kicked her down and stepped on her repeatedly while saying "I love you." it's cruel and cowardly making Yuzu suffer because Mei can't get a hold of herself
Of course I don't hate Mei but you can't help but facepalm as you read the letter. I want to make one thing clear
Mei does not deserve Yuzuru. If she can't push aside her family matters and love Yuzu with even half of the love Yuzu offers her, it's clear that the two aren't meant to be together. Yuzu has been trying SO HARD since day 1 to make the relationship work and Mei has been reluctant and pushes away Yuzu's advances. She's doing this against the most genuine person she'll ever know. I hate the lack of trust Mei shows towards Yuzu as if she's testing her loyalty for the fun of it, not taking account Yuzu's feelings.
If Mei truly leaves I hope she feels guilty to the point where she can't sleep at night. I don't want Yuzu to chase her only to get her heart broken again. Yuzu deserves better
