Yuzuko Aihara, a high school girl whose main interests are fashion, friends and having fun, is about to get a reality check. Due to her mom’s remarriage, Yuzu has transferred to a new, all-girls school that is extremely strict. Her real education is about to begin. From Day One, happy-go-lucky Yuzu makes enemies, namely the beautiful yet stern Student Council President Mei. So what happens when a dejected Yuzu returns home and discovers the shock of her life: that Mei is actually her new step-sister who has come to live with her? Even more surprising, when Mei catches Yuzu off-guard and kisses her out of the blue, what does it all mean?

Citrus is fortunately not your avarage yuri show. The characters go through wider range of problematics than their love relationship. Family matters and also their point of view in terms of way of living and following rules are highly implied on. Dilemmas like "Do I like her as my sister or as a lover" really put something fresh into the genre.These unique elements are the only thing making the show better, it's going only downhill from now on. Author seems to be not so creative as from resolving even the first problem the characters go through on their own, we are introduced with a rival in form of a childhood friend of Main Girl 2 to form a temporary love triangle. After that we get another childhood friend of our Main Girl 1, who is apparently a nympho, which stays a bit longer than the first... even annoyingly more. Another temporary love triangle. After dealing with Nympho-chan and her dumb pink hair, there comes another problem now again from Main Girl 2's side, who fell in love with her just because she helped her once. (I know that love on first sight exists but...) These encounters, which start to seem like the "monster of the week" trope (which features new enemy every episode... something like Jojo P4 or Power Rangers), add literally nothing to the character's development since from Ep 1 through EP 11 it's still the same shit. Main Girl 2 stays cold and serious, and ignores all love signs etc. from the Main Girl 1 who is still confused wether she loves her as a sister or as a woman. Everything the plot does is to reconfirm that Main Girl 1's love is true but it still manages to somehow get her confused again because another Love Rival of the Week comes in. Apart from this, animation is a bit higher than avarage... nothing special but is consistent, there are no apparent flaws like budget running out etc. Sound is ok, I don't even remember if there are any soundtracks hence if there are any, they are quite forgetable. The main characters are well done, other characters apart from Main Girl 1's support are totally unnecessary and dumb. And even the supporting character could get more functions than being a sort of a problem dumpster of Main Girl 1. TL;DRGreat premise destroyed with a total lack of creativity and imagination. Sakura Trick done it better and has no special circumstances the characters are put into.
