Wow... I really thought things were looking up for once. They were just together and now this? I should of known, as expected of shitrus!

At this point Yuzu should just give up. Mei made the decision on her own. I'm tired of Yuzu chasing after Mei when Mei doesn't put the same work back. Even if she wants Yuzu she won't have her and she never tries to put the same amount of effort into the relationship as Yuzu does. The way the letter is worded seems like Mei won't bother to chase after Yuzu so whats the point. I don't want to see Yuzu do it AGAIN, it's Mei's turn.

Yes! It's such an unbalanced relationship. Mei is almost like a damsel in distress emotionally, she's constantly being chased after and never ever pulls her own weight in the relationship.

Its sickening really and it just makes Yuzu look like a huge idiot. Mei takes her love for granted and just expects to be forgiven every time she does something horrible. Yuzu is too in love and will forgive her. Its too manipulative.

What Yuzu SHOULD do is continue living her life and make Mei chase after her first. But no... that kind of writing would be too realistic and good. I thought there was a chance for character development with Mei last time but this just ruined that. I don't know how Saburouta is gonna save this dumpster fire.

That's not what Mei would do. it's been roughly the time they moved to a new school year.
My bet is someone other then Yuzu/Mei is going to get the ball rolling. And my bet it's the guy.

I love how Mei resembles her father so much in an aspect like love, both treat their partner equally shitty. Her father who is forcing Yuzu’s mum in a long distance relationship and Mei... well you know how it is :^)

Mei is the source of her own suffering.
Its sad that she's trapped in a prison of her own dreams and expectations, but what's truly painful is that she's making Yuzu suffer because of it.

Well said. Now time to get out of this prison!

I do not have a problem with the fact that Mei has broked with Yuzu. I even expected this after talking to Matsuri with Nene. I mean, the way it was done. Why show me the uncertainty of Mei and her dilemmas, it is better to give fucking time-skip and uuu she broke with Yuzu. Why? You have everything in the list, do not want too much!

I'm super impressed with how well executed ch. 36 is. The way this is going down perfectly fits with Mei's character and it's probably setting up an awesome make-up/Redemption arc. I really enjoyed how Mei described their relationship even though it's still a heartbreaking chapter.

I bet the father just left a letter, like Mei, too much of a pussy to talk face to face.

Minor reminder that in one of the extras, it was revealed that when Yuzu's mother and Mei's father (Shou) met, Shou was already on his way to journey across the world (or whatever it was) and that it was Yuzu's mother who offered to look after Shou's daughter for him while he was away. I'm not too sure of the details behind their relationship, but I would assume that Yuzu's mother already knew what she was getting into when she and Mei's father became a couple (later). However, I only disagree with your use of "forcing", and not with the sentiment that this is a shitty thing to do.

I thought the way each line was paired with specific imagery was very powerful. I had to read it twice to fully recognize the angst. Also, it was Mei's POV, so that was an incredibly pleasant surprise.

I feel like saburouta could end Citrus with 10 volumes (40 chapters) if she wanted to rush things, but since this series is very popular and is getting her lots of bank it’s possible for saburouta to make Citrus 12 volumes long. 12 volumes would be great as long as she doesn’t squeeze in anymore melodrama and just focuses on fleshing out Yuzu and Mei’s relationship.

We all know Citrus is going to have a happy ending. It’s all up to saburouta to make the happy ending a good one.

Your comment remember me, the only reason she has to do this is because of her father, she has to do all this shit because her dad decided to do his thing and let a teenage girl have to shoulder everything. Regardless of if he loves her that is a giant dick move.

Yep. This. Very much this. For all the murderous hate I saw directed against the grandfather, people seem to give Shou a free pass. He deserted his own duties, and people seem to actually like that, but they never take the bigger picture into account. Not to get into the practical obligations families such as Aiharas have to their employees, and in this case students as well, because we covered that at length in previous thread pages, but suffice to say Shou's choice impacted a lot of people beyond just himself. Most importantly, his own daughter, who is in this predicament solely because of him. Also, his very existence is proof enough the grandfather is not that bad as people paint him to be, if he was, then Shou would never be allowed to leave, and this conflict would not exist. Still, Shou gets like, zero negative feelings as far as I have seen. He is an adult travelling the world in a philosophical search for himself, while his teenage daughter is left to pick up the duties he abandoned. Oh, and yeah, his leaving left Mei even more emotionally broken. That too seems to have been forgotten.

That is true. I've never seen anyone really complain that much about Shou. But also, I hope this means that Shou will somehow redeem himself in future chapters. Like, he finally returns after soul searching and traveling and hears about this and learns that Mei actually isn't in love with her fiancee. So, he somehow breaks the engagement off. I hope that happens. It'd be one of the few proper things he's done as a parent.

Shou pisses me off, and too many do give him a free pass. We know he was a very stern man, just like Mei's grandfather, and imprinted his world views on Mei since she was a child.
Then one day he had his sudden "revelation", made a 180°, became a hippy for the lulz (in the middle of a divorce, too) and asked a grade schooler about a decision that a little girl couldn't take. Saying that Mei should've gone with him is too easy.

All this also made me remember another thing. In the TV show Arthur there was an episode called April 9th, it was a 9/11 allegory episode. In the episode Arthur becomes overly worried about his dad after a fire to the point he skips out of doing stuff he wants to do and tries to force his dad to stay home with him to try to keep him out of harm, and his dad tells him a story where a similar situation happened with him and his mom, and he ends the story with "It's my job to worry about you Arthur, not the other way around." and that's kinda what I feel is missing from Shou, he's not doing that enough for Mei and instead Mei is the one left holding the bag when it comes to all this responsibility her father dumped on her.

Bah, fuck Mei. Running away like a little bitch and leaving a "Dear John" letter in the process? I honestly hope she gets married and has a miserable life, wanting and pining away at her boring, unfulfilling life. She truly deserves to have an unhappy ending.
I doubt it will happen, but I'd much rather ship Team Yuzu and Harumin at this point. Yuzu deserves much better than that selfish, spineless, pathetic, coward that is Mei.

And before any outraged reaction ("WAHHH why are you reading something you hate") [...]

"hahahaha I want attention so I mock a story you like and call you delusional to show you how much smarter and enlightened I am compared to you". Here! Have your little sugar of attention, good boy!

[...] they are either incoherent or downright too damn ridiculous to take seriously to begin with.

They're not though.

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

Man, Misuzi, how could you forget to fellate Nakatani? That's lazy and it has less impact this way. More punch, I say.
