The theme song performers have been revealed for Citrus, an upcoming TV anime based on the yuri romance manga by Saburouta about a plucky high school girl who finds herself in an unusual attraction with her new step-sister after her mother remarries.
The opening theme, entitled "Azalea" is performed by nano.RIPE (pictured above). The ending theme, entitled "Dear Teardrop", is performed by Mia REGINA (pictured below). "Azalea" will be released as a single in Japan on February 07, 2018, while "Dear Teardrop" will be released as a single in Japan on February 28, 2018.
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. The series begins broadcasting on AT-X on January 06, 2018, with later broadcasts to follow on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, and BS Fuji.
