Harumin is too good at concealing her thoughts and feelings. she loves to play dumb while Matsuri acts like knows everything about you. it is a good dynamic between these two characters. I hope they can have a spin-off or something.

The spin-off pairing we need.

The Yuzu and Mei pairing is nice, but I don't feel that their interactions are all that interesting in the main series after a while. I like the Mei in the anthologies better actually. I feel like Matsuri and Harumin is the kind of combo that could pull off a slice of life manga of them just doing everyday things. I would read the shit out of that.

tbh My main pairing is still Mei and Yuzu but after the heartbreaking drama of chapter 36. We all need a romcom between these two. if Sabuoro Uta will make a spin-off story about them. it will probably contain some angst. it will be interesting to see how Harumin and Matsuri's perspective can change by learning from each other.

I love this mangaka- they have an amazing series that (sadly) isn't on here- and their art style is just absolutely amazing. It fits this fluffy story so well.
Also, love the fact that Yuzu gets dropped into what basically amounts to an alternative universe (although it is later revealed to be a dream), she immediately seeks out Mei. Not to mention that both of them look very, very cute. Great stuff.

It was oddly specific...

Hey, who can blame you. Girls w animal ears are amazing.

“BLAST” made me laugh so hard

joined Jan 22, 2018

I love seeing the different sides of Mei in the anthology that we rarely see in the official manga. the very affectionate Mei and the Mei who loves to flirt with Yuzu by trolling her. I enjoyed both the official Citrus manga and the Citrus anthology. I don't think we need to argue which one is the best. the anthology are fluffy and lighthearted while the official manga just has the right balance of romance, comedy, drama...well, I guess the angst is amped a bit too high but it''s one of the reason why we love Citrus so much.

the phone bra strap story feels incomplete but I still laugh so hard nonetheless. I think Mei knows what Yuzu was actually trying to do and just play along with it to troll her LOL but the way Mei look happy when Yuzu used her bra as her phone strap and the way she got angry when Yuzu didn't attached it to her phone when she was going out tells me otherwise xD

the ice cream flirting is something I can totally see Mei do in the official manga. I mean, she did try to taste the porridge by french kissing Yuzu in the drama cd. Mei is just effing smooth.

Dealer just hit a haneman in my mahjong game and the "Love Scream" chapter didn't properly translate the ice cream pun ("ai scream").

Still mentally screeching about that. Nothing satisfied me so I just went "fuck it" in the end.

I love these spin offs! Can they be considered as canon stories or not?

joined Mar 15, 2017

These are more of official doujins or doujins approved by the publisher/author. Sort of. So they are not directly related to the main series. :)

They're not doujin at all. They're non-canon derivative works and many doujin are also that, but what doujin actually means is not being the commercial product of a publishing business. These are the commercial product of a publishing business.

Kodama Naoko hitting right on where the drama hurts, she didn't disappoint :3 Loving casual Mei x Yuzu, I love those anthology! I hope Sabu would have time to make those herself as well.

Kodama Naoko is so good. Her art style really fits this kind of story. I hope she'll do more Citrus stuff in the future, because Kodama Naoko has none of Saburouta's stretched out drama.

Fine, it was cute, even though I'm the only harumi x mitsuko shipper on the planet.

No, no I ship those two as well.

I love this anthology thing, I like the different strokes they have by different authors, I can imagine one made by.. Mira or Asagi Ryu.. ok that's not gonna happen but it'd be entertaining xD

I guess you can put it that way. She is not one to be trusted when it comes to feel-good endings. Or feel-good plot. Basically, her works will just leave you feeling like shit, angry, sad, depressed, i could go on, but i think i got my point across.

It has been fortold that Harumin and Matsuri must end up together, so make it happen Uta!

joined Jan 22, 2018

The most incompatible characters makes the best couple. Mei x Yuzu and Harumin x Matsuri.

Harumin actually watched Yuzu and Mei flirt with each other unlike in the official manga where she's not always on the right spot to see Mei and Yuzu's super gay interactions and "unintentionally" helping them to spend time alone together,

I like how blunt Matsuri is, this girl got no filter while Harumin always play safe. "I need someone to like first" bullsh*t!! it's a good thing Matsuri knows how to push people's buttons, even Harumin can't stay cool when Matsuri provokes her.
