Long story short, Citrus has its shortcomings, but itís a good manga and I respect the hustle. Saburouta does a fantastic job when it comes to characters and she does it well when it comes to recognizing flaws in certain characters.
February is the month of love (or weeping if you don’t have a significant other), so Ike’s here to give you a big dose of yuri with three anthologies!
What is Beauty And The Beast Girl? Itís about a beast girl who lives alone in the forest, but she longs for any sort of interaction. This is when she meets up with Lily, a blind girl who recently moved into the village not far from the forest. Figuring that because she canít see, the beast girl decides to lie to Lily about being a traveler in hopes of becoming her friend. As their relationship develops, their love will be proof that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume, or also known in English, Scorching Ping Pong Girls comes from a studio called Kinema Citrus, who have animated such notable anime like Barakamon, Code:Breaker, and the piled mess that is Black Bullet.
Ike’s top 5 yuri of December 2018. It has demon yuri and yuri about straight girls who attract women instead of men. What a weird month.
Ike’s top 6 yuri of November ranging from Mira’s work to Citrus. Haha, just kidding about the latter. Shots fired.
Ike’s thoughts on She, Her Camera and Her Season, a yuri manga with a looming teenage angst. Good stuff. Rintaro is best boy.
Haifuri (High School Fleet) is battleship version of Girls und Panzer. It also fits under the category of “what can’t a high school girl do?” I swear I read the summary wrong at first. I thought it was about girls cooking on a boat. I don’t know how that happened and how wrong I was.
Please Don’t Bully Me, Nagatoro is a manga about a freshmen who bullies her senpai, but he puts up with it because he’s in love with her. Unfortunately, it borderlines “teasing” and “bullying.” In Yancha Gal no Anjou-san, Seto is a serious student who leads a quiet life until he starts to get teased by the resident gal “Anjou-san.” A great manga.
Amanchu does a great job of explaining the procedure of getting a license and the routines everybody go through to ensure a safe trip. Then for the people who are in touch with the material, it acts as a platform for them to talk with other (in this scenario) scuba divers or help people get into it.
