Saburouta’s hit yuri manga series Citrus has been confirmed to conclude in August, totaling the series to 41 chapters. The first chapter was released in 2012—after 5 years of emotional roller coasters, it has come to this.
The announcement of the manga’s concluding chapter was confirmed in the latest September issue of Comic Yuri Hime. The last chapter will be published in the October issue of the magazine which is slated to be released in Japan on August 18.
Citrus focuses on the life of the upbeat girl named Yuzu and the serious student council president Mei. Yuzu’s life changed forever when Mei moves in with her—and to realize that they are both stepsisters! Both girls have lingering feelings for each other and they are tested with the random school and slice-of-life situations that both have to face.
Citrus was a New York Times Bestseller in 2015 with its volumes sold over 800,000 printed copies internationally. The manga also had an anime adaptation aired last January and concluded in March in a total of 12 episodes.
All big-time yuri stories have to end and Citrus is no exception to this. Let’s hope that the last chapter will have a satisfying end and we look forward to Saburouta’s new Yuri works in the future.
