The story centers on the relationship between a first grade high school girl Yuzu Aihara and her sister-in-law Mei Aihara. In the drama CD released in August 2015 as a bonus item for the fourth volume, Yuzu was voice by Ayana Taketatsu, while Mei was played by Minami Tsuda.


Its English editions are released by Seven Seas Entertainment. Seven Seas describes the story as below:


Yuzuko Aihara, a high school girl whose main interests are fashion, friends and having fun, is about to

get a reality check. Due to her mom’s remarriage, Yuzu has transferred to a new, all-girls school that

is extremely strict. Her real education is about to begin. From Day One, happy-go-lucky Yuzu makes

enemies, namely the beautiful yet stern Student Council President Mei. So what happens when a dejected

Yuzu returns home and discovers the shock of her life: that Mei is actually her new step-sister who has

come to live with her? Even more surprising, when Mei catches Yuzu off-guard and kisses her out of the

blue, what does it all mean?


The Creators in Pack Inc. (Ojisan to MarshmallowOZMAFIA!!) production will be helmed by Hisayoshi Hirasawa, who previously directed Kiitaro's yokai picture diary and Miss Bernard said. Masaru Kawashima (RAIL WARS!Kiznaiver episode animation director) handles character designs.

The manga is licensed in North America by Seven Seas, who describes it

 A dramatic tale of romance, lust, and betrayal, as two young woman explore their growing feelings for one another, NTR: Netsuzou Trap features stunning artwork and a romantic storyline that oozes with erotic tension.

Yuma and Hotaru have been friends since childhood. It is only natural that when Yuma is nervous about her new boyfriend, she asks Hotaru and her boyfriend along for a double date. But when Hotaru offers herself to Yuma as “practice”, both girls realize that they’re more interested in each other than they are in their own boyfriends. With boyfriends in the foreground but a secret, passionate tryst in the background, will Yuma and Hotaru try to forget what happened between them or have they fallen into a trap of true love and betrayal?

"Our readers and fans have been clamoring for more yuri," said Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. "NTR is one of the best-known yuri titles currently running in Japan, and we think Kodama Naoko’s dramatic storytelling along with her beautiful artwork will make this a hit with readers who have enjoyed Citrus."
