Two general taboos clash and fuse to make this show.
Incest and Lesbians.
Citrus was a show that caught the eyes of many people as most people want a good yuri show to watch.
Citrus starts off pretty interesting with the nice tension and development between Yuzu and Mei whilst not making it feel like an overdramatic soap opera.
And when I made a post halfway through the season about my favorite Winter 2018 shows, Citrus was 10th. That's good!
But then, their arcs became boring, repetitive and just too overdramatic to witness.
It's like a good drawing was ruined by drawing more useless shit on top of it.
What a shame. Citrus had potential and although its finale was solid, I still felt like this show crashed hard.
Mei got on my nerves by the end. She was a character who was like a try hard to be cool in ways and it was frustrating.
Yuzu was a girl who annoyed me with her constant indecisive attitude.
And the other girls were just props to build more drama with these two and were disposable.
The only one I liked in the end was Harumi because she is awesome and adorable.
Citrus had development but I was not comfortable with its lame cast by the end.
Art & Animation (9/10)
Here is where this show shined.
The colors, the designs, the execution of sexual tensions through camera shots. All were done very well and made the show better than it had any right to be.
Everything was solid. Nothing too special but I liked everything for most part.
I'd give the 1st half an 8 and the second a 2. So 5 sounds fine for this category.
Citrus was a yuri show that actually could have been good. But in the end, whilst not terrible, it was still disappointing compared to what I hoped for.
