We'll be probably trolled. Beginning chapter of a volume means some drama, probably some complication rather than the beginning of a resolution. Except if it's the last volume, and volume 9 and 10 are the last arc. Depends on the author. If chapter 37 doesn't begin to solve anything, we can imagine another volume of Citrus. So chapter 37 will be very interesting even though the plot doesn't progress much.

>>2594161
the only ship I currently care about
>>
>>2594213
I ship Yuzu with Mitsuko. Am I out of my mind?
>>
>>2594214
Yuzu is a nice girl, she can get any woman she wants. I don't even know why she's wasting her time with Mei.
>>
>>2594216
True. A girl who you just say to her how great she is, the kind of things nobody ever told her. In fact, the more i think, the more i just want volume 10 solving the wedding problem, putting Mei and Yuzu far away from each other. And volume 11 with Mei having a taste of her own medicine.
>>
>>2594222
Harumin called her a angel, atleast we have someone who knows that Yuzu is a beautiful person.

>It seems the manga it's ending with a happy end when...

>Yuzu: "Mei, I'm so sorry but I just found out I inherited a terminal genetic disease from my dad. The doctors said I won't make it past 30"

How likely is this?
>>
>>2594659
Yuzu, Harumin and Matsuri are great.
>>
I just want Harumin and Matsuri to fuck each other
>>
>>2594659
>>2594742
>>2594760
Citrus should be only about Yuzu, Harumin and Matsuri having fun, Yuzu being happy without Mei, and Harumin and Matsuri fucking each other
>>
>>2594690
I wouldn't bother. Living fully for a short time is better than sharing long boring years. At least, Mei wouldn't second-guessing herself and would be fully active in this relationship.

>>2594659
Very ironic that the best track of the drama CD is the one without Mei. Just the three buddies.
>>
>>2594659
Wew.

Matsuri calling Harumin her precious Taniguchi-senpai. She apparently has sexy pics she took of Harumin. And she wants a pic of Harumin and Yuzu kissing each other.
>>
>>2594871
Even Yuzu points out that Matsuri really likes Harumin. And Harumin says that Matsuri only talked about sexy pics of her to see her reaction.
>>
>>2594659
wtf, if this is canon then Harumin has canonically kissed Matsuri in the cheek and there's a picture to prove it.
>>
>>2594848
Mei is boring. I don't hate her because of last chapter, I just dislike her because she's dull as fuck and that is a huge contrast with Yuzu. I know opposites attract but Mei lacks any interesting trait be either something she likes or personality-wise. Plus she doesn't deserve Yuzu
Age gap Citrus with Yuzu and OL would have been better as other anons have pointed out
>>
So apparently Harumin is someone who gets bored and lonely easily.
>>
>>2594659
Madokami save my soul, this was just too cute.
>>
The raws will be out tomorrow. And i’m wondering if Yuzu will be the same as before. She’s not cold or anything, but now she learned to fake her emotions. I just hope that Mei stops being a coward.
>>
I don’t know why, but i think something will happen to Yuzu.
>>
>>2595267
Strange, no color page for a new volume.
>>
>>2595267
What the fuck are those marks?
>>
Truck-Kun.
>>
>>2595272
Blood.
>>
>>2595274
Please, don't.
>>
>>2595272
Tears, duh.
>>
>>2595271
Indeed. What happened to the usual colored cover?
>>
>>2595267
Yuzu listening obliviously music while thinking about her lost love, truck incoming...

https://tieba.baidu.com/p/5652053235

Other panels show Matsuri seeing that manager left the cafe, and talking about it with Harumi. I feel something will happen to Yuzu that will make these people act.

No color page mean maybe that this volume will be the last, or maybe the chapter's tone was too dramatic to do one. I would be surprised to buy the next volume without any color opening.
>>
>>2595284
The marks in the cover are really strange. It's disturbing.
>>
>>2595284
maybe she didn't feel like making a colored cover (it takes more time) cause of the anime and stuff she had to do for it (all in color)
>>
>>2595288
you mean the drops? it's tears
>>
>>2595267
Yuzu crying on the cover...it's gonna be painful again. Maybe Matsuri will found out that the manager it's Mei's fiance
>>
Will Yuzu be happy again? Because i'm starting to have doubts about it.
>>
>>2595308
Yeah, that's sabu cheap trick. We all know they will live happily ever after.
>>
It hurts even before the chapter is out.
I think those marks are blood, since they are dark colour.
>>
>>2595459
The cover is sure double edge. Yuzu is crying depressed listening to some music remembering happy times but she has the position of someone who fell hurt by something. So the two interpretations are possible.... or nothing like that will happen.
>>
>>2595267
CRAWLING IN MY SKIN..

jesus that is one Emo coverpage
>>
>>2595466
I wonder if she will discover who is the fiance in thus chapter, coz she looks very depressed.
>>
>>2595479
Matsuri discovered manager closed definitely the café and talks about it to Harumi. So it’s possible Yuzu has the revelation of it and ends totally feeling betrayed. Hope she won’t harm herself.
>>
chapter 37 when? can anyone send a link?
>>
>>2595490
It all depends on if Matsuri and Harumin can piece together why the cafe was closed.
>>
>>2595505
Matsuri could investigate, try to find the manager or stumble on him, or see him from afar meeting gramps if he is not dead yet or in agony.
Or some odd strings of coincidences would lead them to the truth. Guess, cliffhanger closing the chapter as usual.
>>
>>2595500
Tomorrow around 17 PM Europe. Midnight in Japan. Raws will be available quickly after that.
>>
>>2595512
Maybe Matsuri and Harumin will see him on an arranged "date" with Mei.

Funny but I don't think I saw anyone guess that Matsuri and Harumin would be the key to solving this whole mess.

If this happens it would just feel like Saburouta forcing Harumin and Matsuri into a situation that will make them closer to each other.

Holy bananas this series is good! I'm only one episode 4, and I can tell I'm going to love it.

Any chance there's figures for it?
>>
>>2595633

>I'm only one episode 4
awww cute anon
>>
I still don't know why people love to hate this series. The twins arc is the only one I'd say was a chore to read through.
>>
>>2595703
The twins arc is horrible. Also, the current arc is also a bit annoying. I'm still reading it just to see Yuzu smiling again. But i guess Mei is the reason why some people really hate Citrus. She's always doing retard think.
>>
>>2595267
Seriously, why this girl always ends up suffering?
>>
>>2595719
The frequent hiatuses ever since volume 9 started and not knowing how much the current arc could be dragged out have dampened my enthusiasm about the series. I really loved the series for volumes 5-8.
>>
>>2595721
Because she is into autists.
>>
>>2595719
>>2595731
I don't know, the current arc was foreshadowed from the very start. For the whole fiance situation to be resolved before things go really really south one last time would be unexpected to me. The twins arc was bad because although the trigger for it made sense (what Yuzu said during Christmas), Saburouta just brought in Nina and Sara randomly from out of nowhere who also never showed up again in any real capacity to deal with the situation.

I guess it is just a matter of how one feels towards Mei since I like her.
>>
>>2595719
The twins themselves are horrible.
>>
>>2595267
When will we see Mei's suffering instead of Yuzu's? Every single time Mei does something to ruin their relationship -in other words, runs away like a coward- and Yuzu is suffering as result. And the most annoying thing is, Yuzu easily forgives Mei, acts like Yuzu's the one who is to blmae despite Mei's fault and her grumpy actions.

For once, I want to see Yuzu as more savage who calls Mei's faults out and doesn't forgive her that easy.
>>
>>2595833
No, mei just isn't showed that much to be suffering, or to be exactly, she doesn't have that overly external expressiveness . She cried when she knew she will need to marry and leave yuzu. She is shown to be a melancholic. Yuzu always has an exagerrated reaction, mei just keeps it to herself and suffers internally.
>>
>>2595267
I'm so fucking tired at this point.
I think would be happier if Yuzu just fucking gets over it and gets on with another girl. Mei is just not fucking worth it.
>>
>>2595833
People like you are why I think people are way too hard on Mei. You really don't think Mei is suffering just because she doesn't outwardly show it? Come on, the entire point of her character is that she keeps everything bottled in and hidden and can't express herself or connect to others well.
It's obvious she out of everyone in her life, she loves Yuzu the most and that she's also in pain, but doing painful things for the sake of her family is just the only thing she knows how to do since she was a little girl.
>>
>>2595833
>I want to see Yuzu as more savage who calls Mei's faults out and doesn't forgive her that easy.
Yeah, good luck with that.
>>
>>2595858
>>2595846
I'm not going too hard on Mei. Mei is a fucking coward, that's a fact. Also, I just got tired of Yuzu's being too much considerate for her even while Mei doesn't deserve it.

Mei always the one who screws things up and Yuzu is the only one who covers her. Then Mei acts like Yuzu is one to blame, and Yuzu acts like as though she made mistakes instead of Mei.

I want this to change.
I want Mei to chase after Yuzu this time, I want her to become a person who fights for her love instead of Yuzu's chasing after her.
>>
>>2595888

>I want Mei to chase after Yuzu this time, I want her to become a person who fights for her love instead of Yuzu's chasing after her.

I also want it, I know that Mei was sad coz she knew the time was coming, she cried...but thing is, she could have talked about it to Yuzu or tried to solve with grandpa. I know it won't happen, but I wish Mei would see Yuzu kissing another girl.

>>
>>2596029
YOOO SARA IS BACK, SHE'S GOING TO STAY OVER AT YUZU'S
>>
>>2596029
It's a Matsuri and Harumin hanging out chapter with a bit of Yuzu studying in her room at the end
>>
>>2596034
Volume 4 parallels are likely. Hopefully Mei chases down Yuzu this time.
>>
>>2596029
16 pages, just WOOOOOW

Atleast best girls are coming back
>>
>>2596038
Final arc most likely, so cast reunion.
>>
2 months waiting for 16 pages...you really knows how to troll us, SU
>>
Lol, people wanted Mei to act by herself to get Yuzu back, but this chapter makes it seem like all their friends will cause the push.
>>
>>2596029
not sure if i'm reading this right but are matsuri and harumi really saying they don't know what's up with yuzu?
>>
>>2596029
So it's confirmed. This is the last volume.
>>
>>2596052
how is this confirmed?
>>
>>2596029
>literally nothing happens
>>
>>2596040
>>2596052
I don't think that this is the last volume, especially with how it began with only 16 pages where nothing happens, imo there will be 12 volumes.

Vol 10 cover has Yuzu holding the ring while crying
Vol 11 will have Mei
Vol 12 will have both of them for the first time.
>>
>>2596056
are you saying we have to go through 3 volumes without them together?
>>
>>2596056
12 is too much, 11 at best. And there are plenty of stories who wrap up everything in the last chapter which is much longer than a regular chapter. For example graduation and marriage in the last chapter, then a flashback to them as adults
>>
>>2596045
Were you really expecting any different?
>>
>37 chapters
People still believe the covers mean anything related to what will happen
>>
>>2596056
12 volumes is as likely as a second season i.e: not going to happen
>>
Why is the chapter that short?
I really was expecting Mei appearance in this chapter.

>>
>>2596063
Because the first chapter of a new volume is always just setting the pace for the volume. We didn't need to see Mei now, we already got enough exposition to see what's going to happen next. Saburouta has never opened a volume with a big reveal.
>>
>>2596056
This chapter being short likely means another chapter this volume will be very long, so it could still end this volume. But at this we could get at least an 11th volume.
>>
>>2596029
So autistic Mei is not gonna a fight for her love. Yuzu's friends will support Yuzu and push her to go back to Mei.

Sigh
>>
>>2596079
>>2596076
It's the shortest one. Chapters 21 and 33 was short too. But around 20/22 pages. And with a color cover. Guess the stage is set, Sara is back, maybe Sho and other forgotten characters next chapter and the big set up with everybody pushing back together Yuzu and Mei.
>>
>>2596060
Is this going to be the pattern of the rest of their lives? They move in together and have a disagreement over the soft furnishings; Mei flounces and the gang have to figure out how to get them back together?

>>2596123
Matsuri betrayed, Yuzu betrayed .... Manager and Mei are good together as betrayers.
>>
>>2596116
And anyone who isn't a Harumin/Matsuri shipper will likely be annoyed that this chapter focused mostly on them.
>>
>>2596123
He might've done it to go along with Mei's request of not letting Yuzu find out about him being her fiance. Matsuri is sharp, so she would've known something was up if he said goodbye. Doesn't make it less bad though.
>>
Is it strange that I took a great pleasure to read 2DK and the new Kodama's story than this chapter 37? I mean, everybody expected a great and memorable set up for the drama, and of course a solid 35-40 pages, and we had that?

I guess the author was really really busy and couldn't write a new chapter. So, let's do 16 pages without any plot, a chat in a cafe without real info, and a phone call. But she has to take care to not piss people too many times, chapter 36 was hard enough, and this last work is very disappointing.
>>
>>2596029
I expected nothing and I'm still let down
when I thought saburouta couldn't do worse she does
thank you
maybe someone else should write her stories and saburouta should just focus on drawing

Last chapter :
>manager never shows up
>Mei never shows up
>Harumin and Matsuri officially start dating and get married
>Yuzu is seen having fun at the wedding
>timeskip 10 years into the future
>Yuzu is reading her school album and reminisces about her school years
>suddenly voice from behind the frame calls her to bed
>Yuzu closes the album, smiles (showing us her new engagement ring) and walks to the voice
>final frame shows a photo from Yuzu's wedding with some other woman (make it clear it's not Mei, but also don't show her face)
>the end
Here, I just fixed Citrus.

Does the author want to fuck her manga or what? Badly written chapter. Matsuri and Harumin’s chat is boring and Harumi doesn’t care about Yuzu going home sooner. Haru is in denial here so HaruMatsu fans should wait for the translation. The chat is shitty, and the phone call very meh.

The author really was unable to write something.

I hope we get an epilogue with a timeskip. I want to see Yuzu as a prominent mangaka If she's really the Sabu self-insert and Mei as a stoic school headmaster. Yuzu works from home and likes to cook so she's the perfect housewife who is always waiting for Mei to come back after a long day at work.
>>

How I wish that Yuzu would become a little bit more selfish and actually think more for herself. The entire manga is literally Yuzu gives and Mei takes. I know that Yuzu doesn't really need the help of other considering her personality and her upbringing, but it's so frustrating to see such an imbalance relationship.
I fucking wish that even with all her friends supporting her this time, Yuzu will realize for herself that Mei is not fucking worth it. But this level of writing would be too much for Saburouta.
>>
>>2596167
>At the end we truly were the Citrus
>>
>>2596167
Perfect.
>>
I have a theory:

What if Sabu didn't want Yuzu and Mei to become a thing in the first place but she was forced to change that in the story because of the fans supporting them?

Because everything after vol.3 became inconsistent (yes we had really cute chapters) but you know what i mean.
>>
next chapter is next month...or it better be
>>
>>2596235
don't think so, saburouta said in an interview that she loved mei and yuzu and that she would like to draw them forever (maybe because of that she has stupidly prolonged the story)
>>
>>2596235
lol they were OTP since chapter 1,what the hell are you even talking about? is everyone here on drugs or something? oh wait this is /u/ we are all autistic haters here
>>
>>2596235
Yes, Mei is a shitty love interest, but Saburouta wants YuzuxMei. Denying this is stupid.
>>
>>2596241
Mei is based on Sabu's first failed crush so i just did 1+1
>>
>>2596241
/u/ is the best place to criticize a story, if that hurts you and you want to say this is masterpiece and give it unconditional love because you can't see flaws then go to tumblershit, facebooktrash or reddit

/u/ is also a place where you can find a lot of recommendations and also not because some thing have flaws it means that it's shit or that it can't be your favorite, except with citrus
>>
>>2596240
That is one of the biggest problems with romance stories, many authors live under the impression that you can not follow a story with an established couple (although some authors can not)

>>2596245
that gives confidence.

I am a newfag in Citrus, because I am lazy and the updates in my language are few unless it is Naruto or related to the genre.

The romantic part with Yuzu is ridiculously adorable, it's as if she were a girl 10 years old or younger in love and Mei feels like a woman of 40 years or older, who thinks she is right.

I think I can understand the complaints against the story, but sadly in this kind of stories it's better to wait for the end, it's like a soap opera, "the only thing that matters is the beginning and the end, you can ignore the medium and not miss out on nothing".
>>
>>2596265
>, but sadly in this kind of stories it's better to wait for the end
actually no, what's good about romance novels/mangas/books/stories is not about the end (because we already know they will end uo together) but about the riding, what they go through to end up together ...if it was about the end I wouldn't bother in reading so many GL romance books and the like
>>
>>2596276
But the riding here is shit. Many fans just put up with it because they want to see them together at last.
>>
>>2596278
I'm not putting up because I want to see them together, not anymore at least. I just read it out of habit
>>
I wonder why fags like you keep reading iti f you hate it so much, and yeah everyone can say their shit and share their hate here cause is anonymously you cowards
>>
>>2596283
>posting your opinions on an anonymous imageboard means you're a coward
What the fuck did I just read.
>>
>>2596276
>>2596278
>>2596281
that's why I said "this kind of stories" and as "soap opera" and also "to manage an established couple"

I know it's possible, but here it feels a bit silly to handle and use drama as an excuse to follow a story.

>>2596283
Some people complain that they are disappointed by something that could have been better.

I read it for Yuzu. And people are free to express their opinion, so fuck off.
>>
>>2596283
you can't criticize something if you don't read/watch it, most of us, if not everybody, started to read citrus since it started to being published or when it had few chapters so it wasn't like this before. However, things changed, you can just drop it or continue with it without being desperate for updates and then commenting, neither of them is wrong
also this >>2596290 it's not like having a tumblr/twitter/Facebook profile with a nickname is any different
if it's necessary I will tell you what I think about something irl too, I do it all the time when I discuss something with friends
>>
>>2596294
think it should have been better,,,,why don;t they write their own stories then? why call something shit if you don't like it? just shut up and move to the next thing that will disappoint you and leave you bitter instead of shirting on someone elses work. I can't even imagine all these artists reading comments like that for their hard work.

Just stop.
>>
>>2596308
You realise that most of us are here because we do like it, right? Or did so at one point anyway. Nothing can disappoint you like something you once loved.
>>
>>2596300
It is not discrediting the work of the author, but it has to be recognized that it has not been handled correctly, we simply can not accept the faults, close our eyes and pretend that nothing bad is happening, cofcofaikatsustarscofcof.

A true fan also sees the flaws in the things that they like, maybe you can not change anything, but you have to admit that I could have been better.
>>
>>2596300
You can like something but still be aware that it has flaws. Citrus has bad writing, I'm not blind not to see it.

Indeed. Last chapter is badly written. Good art doesn’t excuse inhability to write a consistent plot. Harumi is almost ooc here. For a flagship series, with the climax of the story, this chapter is disappointing. It is not direspecting the author, it is a fact here.
Time will tell if she decided to shift on short chapters now. But Citrus appeal among its flaws was also its long chapters... so we just have a depressed Yuzu for only a few pages and good drawing now.
>>
Are we doing to have a new chapter next month?
Also, SU won't go to the family route after this marriage thing is over? It's a way to drop Citrus to chapter 50...
>>
>>2596335
This seems like a mega arc that will resolve all lingering issues with the entire cast. Sara coming back is just the beginning.
>>
>>2596029
>sara, the character no one likes
>not the dad who can resolve EVERYTHING

Holy shit she's an awful writer. How can anyone be this inept?
>>
>>2596375
I get the feeling that everyone who knows Mei and Yuzu will help out too, not just Sara.
>>
Given that volume 9 had no bonus chapter, then this chapter was short and focused on Harumin and Matsuri, it makes it feel like they tried to pass off a bonus chapter as a full chapter.
>>
This feels like the perfect time to bring Mei's Father back.
>>
>>2596375
Sara has unironically had a bigger role in the story than Mei's papa.
>>
How could she send Mei off to get married with some dude and her papa isn't even a thought? Like, c'mon. Just another set of useless parents to add to the thousands of useless parents in anime and manga
>>
>>2596398
Hence the perfect time would therefore be now for his return. To once and for all be a real Father for Mei and help her in the same way he helped himself, to break away from this obligatory and authoritarian state she's in and be free to love whoever she wants.

So, Harumi is in denial here and seems to not care about yuzu's reason to come home after school instead of going out with Harumi.
Harumi doesn't seem to have a clew about the real reasons. And Matsuri making fun of her saying "what a good best friend she is" because she's not curious about Yuzu's situation.

16 pages and nobody saw Saburouta's assistant mistakes before putting in publication? Seriously? Guess it confirms the chapter was given late and so the author probably was on the border to do another hiatus.
The editor probably meddled to at least have a Citrus chapter, short and quickly done than nothing for another month.
We are nearing the end of the manga, clearly, because the author seems to have constant difficulties to follow the schedule now.
>>
December = hiatus, March = hiatus, shortest chapter ever in April. Yes, there was the volume, the anime, but Merryhachi and Kodama too had to release volumes, and promote their anime. At this pace, Saburouta should just ask a bimonthly release of her chapters now to be able to do full-length ones.

If Yuru Yuri can do regular hiatuses, why not Citrus. I would prefer well-written chapters, 40 pages, and two months each time than these rushed chapters.
>>
>>2596751
I spotted it with my first rushed reading. If i saw it, and many other readers, why the editor’s team missed it? Do they check mangaka’s chapters?
>>
plot twist: Saburouta really wanted to finish citrus at chapter 36 (that's why there was no to be continued on last page) but due to the fans pressure she continued,thus the short chapter,she is trying to think how to get out of all this mess she created.
>>
>>2596774
Don't think so, to many hints to the contrary. Not only the author's words but also some foreshadowing here and there. But it's strange how she tries to make this short chapter a sort of following up of volume 9, in her tweet, when this chapter just cries "not enough time".

Anyway, I hope Mei will be reminded how what she's doing to yuzu, leaving her like that, mimic what Shou did to her. If Mei thinks about it a little, she was traumatized and told Matsuri how much this made her someone empty, prone to close her heart to everyone.

and here, we have Yuzu who became empty, husky, and closed herself to her friends. Her last words here are very enlightening in her process to be a second Mei, interiorizing everything and showing a strong facade. To Sara asking her how is Mei, she says something like "ok ... I think". The last part of this arc could be how to revert Yuzu to her old self.
>>
>>2596667
I don't see how that's bad. Most of the early /u/sers' foray into yuri was through some fetishistic materials, they were surprised that lesbians can have perfectly human sort of drama too.

If Kannazuki no Miko is aired today it would be considered a degrading garbage.
>>
>>2596779
My theory is that chapter 37 is really a slightly extended volume 9 bonus chapter that was held back for some reason and released as chapter 37. It makes sense given what it covers, especially since it's main focus isn't Yuzu or Mei.
I mean volume 4 still had a bonus chapter and a drama CD, so volume 9 just feels like the bonus chapter just wasn't done in time, so they released it as the start of volume 10.

I refuse to believe Harumi had no idea about Yuzu/Mei and that she's fine doing nothing to help Yuzu now. That feels so out of character.
You'll see. The best girl will pull through.
>>
>>2596833
Yuzu should just buy a motorcycle, take some sunglasses and just drives around the city to look for some fine ass to tap.

But yeah, more seriously, that's the thing that saddens me most. Everybody says how much Yuzu inspires them but never in front of her. Everybody had his/her ass saved at some point by Yuzu : Shiraho and Nene were saved from loneliness at school and earn a real circle of friends for example... and the list is long. But now, the girl just made a 360 in her behavior and routines, and nobody fucking do something for 8 months.

It almost tragically funny to see that I will be Sara who will be the first to do something, Sara, someone yuzu didn't talk to for almost one year.
>>
thanks!
>>
Matsuri is clearly concerned about Yuzu,but they might wanna give her some space. the fact that Yuzu prefers to go home even though Mei is not there just to study makes me think she does cause she can't pretend to be happy around her friends that long.
>>
>>2596868
That's what I thought, she can fake her smile at school but it must be tiring her at some point, so she needs some space because she knows that she would crumble. Her control isn't as natural as Mei.

A member of CT thinks chapter 37 is short due to doing Saburouta possibly mimicking what Kodama did with NTR volume 6. Basically, more chapters in the volume but shorter.
>>
>>2596923
what do they know? I hate them sometimes they act like they know everything
>>
>>2596926
It was just their guess. No need to be salty over it.

Saburouta has been having trouble doing Citrus monthly, so going back to bi-monthly or doing shorter chapters wouldn't be surprising.
>>
>>2596923
Everything is possible. Lack of time once again cause fanbook, BD2 incoming, shorter chapters to expand Citrus during all this year, or just a short one like chapter 21 because it is just an introduction.

Or just keeping Mei's come back for the next chapter. If next chapter is 40 pages, we'll have the 4 chapters as usual, and a rushed ending or another volume.

>>2596926
What can solidify their theory is that Kodama's personal editor is Saburouta's one too, and the actual chief-editor of Yuri Hime. So, there can be a connexion. But it's just assumption, not more stupid than others. Chapter 38 will show if it's a trend the author decided to quicken the pace.
>>
>>2596923
Difference is Kodama did a color cover for the opening chapter of this last volume. So i don't know, lack of color cover + short chapter. Don't know what the author wanted to do.
>>
>>2596938
Saburouta has BD bonus materials to work on all the way through July. That's alot of extra work on her every month until then, especially because the BDs come with voice dramas.
>>
>>2596940
she said that is a continuation of volume 9 so perhaps that's why no colored cover. the colored cover of volume 9 it's enough to summarize the whole arc
>>
>>2596942
No drama CD next, BD 2 will have the 12 CM of Yuri Hime promo clips on tokyo-MX, and BD3 and 4 will have OP and ED clips as bonuses.

So now, she just has to drown one or two visuals.
>>
>>2596947
It mentions a leaflet and an illustrated postcard from Saburouta.
>>
>>2596952
The postcard is the ED ones, nothing knew. I have one with the first BD. And the leaflet is anime sketches, not from her but from the animators. So, the next BD won't have Saburouta's work that hadn't been done except the cover visual. I doubt one cover will make her sacrifice 20 pages for next chapters.
>>
>>2596926
>>2596932
>>2596938
The difference here is that if they wrote this guess on their facebook page, we will have thousands of enraged underage kid demanding more chapters from this volume. CT's community thought they have some control over the production of S2 already.
>>
Saburouta is just lazy or has a lot of things on her plate besides Citrus. There are other mangaka who can draw extra material and present their monthly work finished. Kodama for example. There's no excuse
>>
>>2596968
Saburouta unlike Kodama draws everything in hand
>>
>>2596968
Her hiatuses were never really explained, so maybe she's having health problems or something.
>>
>>2596967
>S2
Let's not get ahead of ourselves here.
>>
>>2596976
You should check their comments page. People genuinely believe CT knows some secret insider info about the supposed production of S2 when no one else does.
>>
>>2596971
If you were a imoutou with knowledge (in the manga/drawing world) you would know that that isn't an excuse.

is so hard to believe that Saburouta is: lazy as fuck, having problem with the story (which wouldnt be a surprise ha), leaving everything for last minute?
The thing about health issues could be right too but as far as I know the magazines/editors always inform these kind of things
>>
>>2596982
Facebook users are just retarded, nothing new. They are completely sure Citrus will get a s2 just because it won Best Romance and Drama in Anime Trending, a Westernfag site.
>>
>>2596982
Well, I mean, like, 90% of people who have CT Liked are ESL.

new chapter this week or the next? or is the hiatus going through april as well?
>>
>>2597030
How about you actually read the thread?
>>
Saburouta already did a short chapter when Yuri Hime was every two months, chapter 21. So she has consistent difficulties to draw full chapters on a very strict schedule.

Indeed, Kodama and Merryhachi can publish a new chapter and a volume the same month with all the benefits. But Saburouta is known to have a great work ethic, so talking about lazy is wrong here.

Health problems? I doubt it, she's been pretty active on social media, she was at the yuri fair and was present at the radio citrus recordings. she just cannot draw full-length chapters every month, even though she has not a volume released. Nips aren't very surprised, i didn't see any negative comment about the short format. So they just know it can happen, and deal with it.
>>
>>2597039
>she was at the yuri fair
do you know if they allow photography at these events? i'm always really curious to know what mangakas look like since many of them are very strict with their privacy.
so that's why i find it hard to believe that despite Sabu going to all these events there's no pictures of her online. is it just Japanese decency to not take pictures of others or are you not allowed to photograph at all at these events?
>>
>>2597097
No pictures allowed. Like when she was at the pre screening events for the two first episodes in December. There was many yuri mangakas, not a picture was published exept some drawings. I guess it is a sacred rule. Especially with mangakas who draw yuri or yaoi. Tite Kubo is really a peculiar case, showing himself whenever he could.
>>
>>2597097
not same anon
I don't know if they are allowed or not and if it's due to the artist not wanting them or the event itself (policies) but I have seen online news sites posting pictures while reporting an event and they always hide the face of the artist (this almost never happens though)
I think that basically you can only know how the artist look if you go to an event but you can't take photos so their looks won't go viral
>>
>>2597114
>so their looks won't go viral
It just leads to myths like people saying Sabu looks just like Mei

Looking through the comments every time a new chapter is out just makes me wonder why people bother to follow the series if they will always complain about the series not having the development they have on their heads. I mean, I have no idea what is Saburota thinking and she has thrown so many curve balls that I think is pointless to try and guess where will the story go. Like, did anyone seriously expected for Nina and Sarah to show up again?

Anyways, the chapter itself while short was far from being pointless, and personally I appreciated the insight it provided of Matsuri and Harumin's current standing regarding Yuzu's situation and furthermore, the way it actually develops their own relationship by showing the way they compliment each other.

Now I've seen people say that Harumin doesn't give a fuck about Yuzu or that she's so dense to no realize Yuzu's in pain but honestly I don't know how is possible to get to that conclusion after reading this chapter. The only explanation I can see is again, the fact that people expect the series to follow their own ideas instead of Sabu's. Harumin obviously realizes Yuzu is in a bad spot now but she deciding to not get involved unless Yuzu opens to them is a perfectly understandable course of action and one that is completely in line with Harumin's character.

Anyways, all in all it was an enjoyable chapter and is certainly makes me look forward to the next one.

I'd like to see Yuzu and the gang (including Sara and Nina) crash the wedding and stop it. Maybe a scene where they go Mei can't marry him because she's already married to Yuzu, and the pictures of them in wedding dresses together is whipped out.
>>
>>2597477
>Yuzu saves the day once again, while Mei just passively waits to be rescued and does nothing
I would rather not.
At least in the end, Mei needs to show some effort instead of just waiting for Yuzu to do all the work. Again.

>>2597473
True, but authors don't write those type of developments (I'm referring to that side chapter with both of them) for things to go nowhere.

The amount of shitting on Mei. I think it's true that Yuzu get the short end of the stick, but that's the point of loving someone, you fight for them and you get hurt a long the way, but at the end of it it'll be worth it.

She won't just have Yuzu crash the wedding. Yuzu'll crash the wedding with no survivors!
>>

Mei has to pay.
>>
>>2597544
That's rubbish. A healthy relationship doesn't involve one person dealing with all the shit of the other person. It was to be a two-way thing in which both people try to grow together and get over their issues to make things work.

Yuzu and Mei's relationship works because of Yuzu. Mei barely does anything.

So why does Mei not fight for the person she loves?
>>
>>2597582
Well, the fact that everyone seems to be reunited in this volume, including the forgotten twins ... conveniently coming to Tokyo, points toward a kind of big reunion party where everyone will push Yuzu toward Mei.

Depressed Yuzu at its height. Am I the only one who noticed she's thinner and tiny in this chapter... she also was a little thinner in chapter 36, especially when she's at home. But here, it's blatant. Not responsive, lack of energy, empty eyes, and bones everywhere.
>>
>>2597683
Why does she do this?
Seriously Mei is not worth the game.
I lf i was Yuzu i would've flipped the finger and tried to find a new love.

Yes i know first love can be toxic but this love is deadly cancer.

It hurts to see Yuzu like this.
>>
>>2597687
>Why does she do this?
First love is the hardest to get over, and Yuzu is still really young.
>>
>>2597683
It was obvious to me when she got the phone call from Sara.
Normally, Yuzu would have been really excited and happy about the call and even more so about the possibility of them staying over. However, this chapter Yuzu seemed as she couldn't care less about them, which was really sad because this isn't like her in the slightest.

I think the best development would be her getting over Mei, and Mei somehow getting her act together and having to gain Yuzu's affections again.
>>
>>2597743
Yuzu is clearly building walls around herself and want to avoid people. She tries to disconnect herself from friends but cannot forget Mei yet. The "love is over ...?" is more her thoughts about the possibility that, is she slowly trying to move on but cannot yet.

Indeed, a nice development would be that this friend gathering would fail in fact, or just succeed to give some sense back to Mei. But after that, Mei would have to work to earn back Yuzu would be to much hurt and scarred to just go along with others.

But it seems that Sara will just have to work her magic and fighting Yuzu will be back.

There are pictures of Namori, Morinaga and a few other mangaka. Just dig the archive and you'll find them.
I haven't seen any picture of Sabu but I heard ironically she is a splitting image of Mei

I don't understand why the readers like Mei more than Yuzu.

Well, the same type of Japanese readers who loved more Sasuke than Naruto, mysterious, dark personality with dark hair, shady characters ... but ultimately, full cunts.

>chapter is called "love is over?"
>just a few weeks prior loveisover died

Pottery?
>>
>>2597771
Love is over is more from yuzu point of view. During 8 months, she was "I will always love you", now she wonders if there is still something.
>>
>>2597747
I honestly don't want a fighting Yuzu. I don't want her to have to shoulder the burden of Mei's decisions.
Mei chose this. If anyone can and has to fix this is her alone.

All Yuzu has to do is come to terms with reality and try to be happy with or without Mei. Everything else should be up to Mei.
>>
>>2597683
Omg so unforeseeable

>>2597788
The one who needs to fix this circular story is saburouta

>>2597707
Why does Yuzu, the largest of the citrus' not simply eat the other 8
>>
>>2597604
>>2597645
I mean that's what I'm trying to say, Yuzu got the short end of stick so she ended up working for it more, but I'm sure Mei will work for it too later on. It takes two to tangle, they'll end up together and it's gonna be because both of them work for it.
Because Yuzu gave her so much unconditional love and Mei is a child who lacked love, I think in a way it balanced it out. This is also the reason why Mei loves Yuzu. Beside it is Yuzu choice to fight for it anyway. She knows it's tough, but she think that Mei is worth it.

You say it takes two to tango, but this far the only one dancing is Yuzu. Mei has been taken along this whole time, and even keeps messing up the steps, mostly on purpose.

Their relationship cannot go on if only Yuzu tries to make it work. Yuzu has done all she can to that end, and this time, she's hit a wall, because this time the break-up was entirely Mei's decision. She wasn't forced to. She chose her role as an Aihara over her relationship with Yuzu. I mean, that's understandable given all her grandfather has done for her, but Yuzu cannot do anything about it. If Mei somehow finds out she really wants to be with Yuzu over her need to fulfill her duty to her family, then the only one who can fix this situation is her. Yuzu cannot do anything.
>>
>>2598361
Did Yuzu grated Mei boob and did a double-take thinking it's wasn't Harumi's bosom? Poor Mei, even in some side-stories, Harumi's boobs is a better comforting place than her arms.

We failed to protect Yuzu's smile.
>>
>>2598872
Well all of her dear friends she supported through the manga failed too. Yuzu is just suffering alone and others let her fall into depression just because they are waiting for someone so broken to see them and confide.
Irony the person who will act to push Yuzu will be Sara.... or she will fail and Haru will at last do something instead of waiting on the sidelines.
>>
>>2598894
Yes. I'm wondering why Yuzu always ends up suffering. Saburouta is always making Mei (or some other random character) as a victim, but in the end Yuzu is the only one getting fucked up. The fact that everybody is just watching Yuzu getting depressed bothers me.
>>
>>2598899
Yes, especially since these same characters said how much Yuzu was great when Yuzu was never here to listen to them express their admiration.

Mei suffers too, I think everybody can see that, but she's portrayed in a kind of heroic stance, sacrificing her happiness for her duty. Yuzu is just abused, abused, abused when she always put others before her own needs. The author has a very disturbing way to make Yuzu the perpetual slaughtered white sheep.

I want Yuzu to just snap, that could be the case. She bottles up everything since 9 months, she's going to explode. When? Maybe when she'll meet Mei and the Udagawa on the streets, cause you know, the twin sisters coming visiting Tokyo just cries a Tokyo-tour that will lead to an unexpected meeting.

And here, we could have something interesting. But I won't let my hope too high. Saburouta decided that Yuzu, the MC, would be mistreated till the very last chapter. And since it's Yuzu's pov well not anymore since some chapters), I am a little tired to be abused through Yuzu. If Yuzu is the author's self-insert, well, Saburouta is really masochistic.

Are the japanese readers also annoyed by this arc?
>>
>>2599010
Except the fact they root for a happy reconciliation, they don't really bother. They just want Yuzu and Mei together. They assume Sara will push Yuzu or that Shou will come back. I didn't see some theories about Mei changing her mind, so they pretty go along with the fact that there won't be any 360 degrees from her.
The last chapter didn't seem to bother them either about its short format. Just Yuzu depressed worry them and they want to see Mei back in the manga. But I think they pretty predicted this climax, the arranged wedding thing is almost an obligatory step from their point of view.

Funny thing, some readers tweeted about their wish to just buy the last Yuri Hime issue this weekend to avoid being shattered by another crushing chapter during the week at work. Well, it wasn't needed since this chapter was just an introduction.
>>
>>2599010
So to sum up, they are less annoyed than with volume 4 and the very disliked volume 7 in Japan.
>>
>>2599013
Interesting. They're really hopeful then, that's good. It's just a shame that they also think that Mei won't change her mind, so everything is up to Yuzu again. I just want this arc to end in this volume. But yeah, if Yuzu starts to get energetic and with her fight spirit again, i guess everything will feel more bright.
>>
>>2599024
They are simply more accepting of the "scarfing myself for muh family" bullshit. Japanese culture and all.
>>
>>2599013
>the arranged wedding thing is almost an obligatory step from their point of view.
the arranged wedding thing is almost an obligatory step from their point of view.
Well, someone did say that a while ago and then got shouted down about it iirc
>>
>>2599337
Well, didn't say it was a good step to be taken by the plot... And the fact that readers expected it to be used by the author doesn't mean that they agree, it's just a cliche expected in a drama Yuri where one of the love interest is from old traditional and wealthy family.

The grandfather's words on his hospital bed were mistranslated. In the Japanese version, he said Mei could be free to do what she wants... for some time. The "for some time" disappeared in the English and Yuri Project version, western readers just thought that Mei was definitely free with gramps' benediction.

But Japanese readers just saw it coming clearer. Mei's days were counted, and it was more explicit in the original version.
>>
>>2599350
it's not even in the seven seas version.....but shit.....
>>
>>2599364
>お前もしばらくの間は自分の意思で行動しなさい

しばらくの間 = for a short while, for some time, for the time being.

And it became, "do as you want to do and do not worry about me".

Well, it was clearer than water that Japanese readers knew that Mei would have to deal with her duty to be Aihara heir soon. How missing a little word can change everything. We can blame the author for many things, but not the fact that this wedding comes from nowhere and that Mei's duty was forgotten during 7 chapters. I guess Japanese is not really ok with the idea of this wedding, we are in a yuri manga, in a yuri magazine, it won't happen, they know that. But they are easier going with the author cause the knew it would come back in the plot, the author didn't hide it. JIt was just implicitly hinted.

We can imagine, but it's just assumption, that Mei perfectly understood the message here, and knows, since chapter 4, that her "romance" that doesn't exist yet, just a vague attraction for Yuzu, will be short-lived. Hence her behavior after the chapter's 8 kiss, "we are sisters ...". It became unbearable as she stated when she was sure it was love.

7 chapters = 7 volumes.
