Yuri genre anime: Citrus Season 2 is having chances of release. But what is taking so long for Passione Studio to make the Citrus sequel? Here is everything we know about Citrus Season 2.
Citrus is a Japanese anime covering the Yuri genre, meaning lesbian love. It is an anime adaptation based on a manga series by Saburouta. He wrote as well as illustrated the manga. Studio Passione is the production partner of the series.
The first season came under the direction of Takeo Takahashi and Naoyuki Tatsuwa. This famous duo is well known for the anime series- Dakaichi. As the manga series earned fame, directors decided to adapt it into anime series. Hence, Citrus season 1 was released between January 6, 2018, to March 24, 2018.
Not only fans but season 1 bought critics as well. It was expected that this anime would bring mixed reviews because of some sexual assault content that is shown in the series. But between critics, non-Japanese fans also loved it.
Hence, the series was made worldwide available under the license of Crunchyroll and Funimation. Let us start with the up to the date information about Citrus season 2.
What Are the Chances of Citrus Having Season 2?
Citrus- manga series began to serialize back in 2012, and the anime adaptation came out in the form of Season 1 in January 2018. Three years have passed already, and there are no signals for season 2.
Fans are under heavy tightness regarding the release confirmation of Citrus Season 2. Here are some factors that favor.
The first favoring factor for season 2 is the popularity and success that Citrus season 1 was gifted from the fans.
But the non-favoring signal that might bring the hope of the production team to the bottom is low ratings from IMDB and MyAnimeList. Also, critics showered some hatred concerning the storyline of Season 1.
While looking at another green signal, there is abundant source material present for the production of Citrus’s second season. If Passione studio decides to begin the production task, fans will surely support their venture.

Even one spin-off, Citrus Plus, was released back in 2019, which signified the chance of getting season 2. If we look at the brief intro of season 1, the plot puts light on two female lead characters of the show, Yuzu Aihara and Mei Aihara.
Yuzu is forced to go to a new all-girls school after her mother takes the decision of remarrying. There were some discomforts that she had to face while going to a new place, but it brought some great opportunities as well.
She has spent her starting school years in co-education and was fed up with all-girls school strictness and rules. She was not liking the unwanted attention that she got because of her good looks.
However, the student council president of her new school is none other than her step-sister, Mei Aihara. Mei was soft-hearted towards Yuzu, but she always gave Yuzu her cold shoulder and never conversed well. So, Yuzu started teasing her, and one day when Yuzu was about to tease her, Mei pins her to the floor and kisses her.
After this incident, Mei suddenly finds her way out of the room, and Yuzu is left-back in astonishment about what just happened between them. She was angry with this behavior. However, at the end of the series, Mei gathers some courage and confesses her love towards Yuzu.
Will Yuzu accept it? Is this true love or just sexual attraction? All these cliffhangers will be answered in the upcoming seasons.
