I'm not familiar with Melon Books, but am I right in thinking that the Nene x Matsuri thing is Harumin's fantasy (which may be painfully obvious to some, but I'm not so quick on the uptake sometimes).

On the first page, the melon book has clearly been signed by Harumin, so it's safe to assume it's her book.

On the second page it states that the notebook presents the 'owners fantasies in manga form'.

Then we get a small scene taking place in traditional clothing, so it might be a historical setting for the fantasy.

Then at the end we see Harumin looking into the book saying that it's interesting, whilst modern day/real life Nene and Matsuri likely talk about Nene's own fantasies.

Today we have learned that Saburouta is still a troll and that little Mei was too adorable for words. ^_^

I don't get why ppl like the haru x matsu so much, they don't have any chemistry at all, there's times where it seems like Harumin legit can't stand matsuri, and maybe i'm wrong but i don't think Harumin is supossed to be a tsundere character

I mean yeah yuzu and mei are pretty much like that, but at least saburo uta makes sure to remind us every so often that despite all the evidence they love each other and are in fact dating

Exactly. There is zero chemistry between them, and the only reason I can think of is because Matsuri and Harumin are the second most important characters after Yuzu and Mei
(yes, not storywise important, but secondary character ranked ) and people want to yuri ship them with someone.

Also Matsuri used to tease Harumin a bit in the early chapters, so it kinda stuck.

Even if you don't 'ship' them or feel like there shouldn't be any mutual romantic interest between the two, this comment is ridiculous.

In the brief times they've been together on the page, we've seen plenty of chemistry. Perhaps not in terms of an unfolding love story, but certainly as two people that are diametrically opposed but are chasing the same goal. That's especially true in recent chapters.

How someone perceives chemistry without the author's deliberate attempt to make it seem so is not objective, therefore calling that notion ridiculous is bizarre itself.
Two opposite people arguing with each other without any sign of mutual lingering feelings is just two people who can't get along (despite having a common goal), but of course you can add your own bias or preferences and take it a step further and feel differently about the situation.
Unless the author makes more effort to show Harumin having some type of feelings for Matsuri too, it is perfectly normal to view them as Matsuri being annoying to Harumin and nothing more.

Years ago, I thought Saburuta would have developed them more by now, but instead she just keeps drawing Harumin annoyed by Matsuri and adds new yuri pairings instead. That makes me think she is not a big fan of HaruMatsu herself either, because she has found so much place for other side characters who weren't even needed for the story but still not them.

At first I thought it was Nene's delusion again but it doesn't make sense but now I get it

I also don't understand the HaruxMatsu
I love Harumin but Matsuri is too indifferent to me
I always wanted her to stay with Nene and at least now there is something of that

Harumin looking gorgeous. I wonder if she's going on a date?

Wowa. Hopefully not with Matsuri! :)

One thing I noticed in a summer in Osaka was that Japanese women generally didn't show that much skin, even when it was hot and humid. There was the occasional schoolgirl skirt probably shorter than regulation, and it's not like I ever went to nightlife areas. But in Boston you could see a lot of young women dressed like that during the day -- maybe less flashy versions, but like short tank top and short shorts -- just walking around, and far less of that in Japan. If I did see someone in skimpy clothes I often guessed she was a visiting foreigner, whether from seeing a white boyfriend or overhearing her talk or both.

The cover is something else

Mei as a devil, Yuzu as an Angel and Harumin as Queen. What is Sabu trying to say?

Well, these covers are the reason why I read Citrus. It's striking how better a story can automatically become when the art is great.
The past few years yuri stories lack both plot and art. I could read an average at best story if the art this awesome.

Wowa. Hopefully not with Matsuri! :)

Hehehe

She is aware.

I've been avoiding shipping Harumi and Matsuri, but the manga keeps pushing me.

Man...what happened to Mei and Yuzu's chemistry? It seems to be vanished altogether. These hoes be acting as if they've had lesbian bed death even before they've had sex. How depressing. (And eating burgers with knife and fork, oh Mei...sweetheart...)

Well, at least we got to see Mei in revealing clothes so I should quit complaining about these small things I guess.

Well, she knows she's going to eat the burger--she's just not sure how yet.
