Four additional cast members have been announced for Citrus, an upcoming TV anime based on the yuri romance manga by Saburouta about a young woman whose life grows complicated when her mother remarries and she must deal with a new high school and a new step-sister.
The new cast members include:
- Hisako Kanemoto as Sara Tachibana.
- Rei Matsuzaki as Nina Tachibana.
- Tomoaki Maeno as Shou Aihara.
- And Kana Ueda as Ume Aihara.
The original Citrus manga is serialized in Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Seven Seas Entertainment, who described the story as follows:
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 Citrus TV anime is directed by Takeo Takahashi and features animation by Passione. It will broadcast on Tokyo MX, AT-X, and BS Fuji beginning in January of 2018.
