You might be wondering, does Sara goes along with Mei’s desire to kiss her? Maybe not.
From last time Nina stops Yuzu from seeing Mei. It’s obvious that she doesn’t want Yuzu to mess up Sara’s only chance. Of course, Yuzu is not going to let that obstacle get in a way. Sara eventually calls her and surprisingly decides to help Yuzu out. Sure, Sara sacrificing her chance disappoints Nina, it’s the right choice. After all, Sara wanted to help Yuzu and Mei out.
Afte Yuzu ran to the temple where Mei is at, Yuzu tries to share her feelings. She realized that neither she or Mei can accept their feelings mutually. While Mei tries to run away, Yuzu eventually jumped and landed on her. Afterwards, she shares how she feels her and confesses to her. After that, she kissed Mei, or rather, the mini teddy bear first before kissing Mei.
At last, despite how much mixed feelings I had with the Tachibana arc, everything went well in the end in one heartwarming moment. It’s obvious that this arc pushes Yuzu in the right direction instead of going one step forward and two steps back. It was because they didn’t fully understand each other’s feelings until now. The lack of emotions from Mei, except when she is upset didn’t help either. Thankfully, she is slowly defrosting from her cold personality.
With that Nina tells Mei to hold hands with Yuzu. At last, after numerous setbacks, it’s satisfying that Yuzu and Mei is finally starting to date with each other. As for what happens next, you will have to read the manga to find out or wait until a second season happens.
Despite having mixed feelings with the Tachibana arc, I have to admit that Citrus was interesting to watch. Although it has more drama than just having yuri like Sakura Trick or Konohana Kitan, it’s interesting to see how Yuzu develops feelings for Mei. Also, it’s nice to see Mei gradually become less cold as she tries to convey her feelings to Yuzu.
Still, it can get a bit frustrating given the number of times Yuzu have to say how much she loves Mei. It feels like their relationship takes one step forward and two steps back. This is evident with Matsuri and Tachibana’s arc and lesser extent, Himeko’s. However, the Tachibana arc gave me mixed feelings in regards to this. Even so, the drama is still well-executed.
Despite the flaws with the story, the show has its good points. Of course, one of them is Harumi who is Yuzu’s best friend who helps her out when she has trouble. It does give one the impression that the official paring should be Yuzu and Harumi instead. Despite this, there are still nice moments with Yuzu and Mei, especially with the last episode. ¶
