I've tried multiple series, but I've only really liked Aoi Hana, even with its rushed ending. Maybe because it felt like a more fleshed out series than just a story about a couple gay girls. Other than that, I stick to 2hu doujins.
Did you even read it? Neither of them fucked their boyfriends and that's why the guys broke up with them.
Anyways, yeah Girl Friends. Citrus is really fucking good as a whole but is agonizing to wait for and the chapter format makes the developments really annoying. In retrospect, it might end up being the best but there is no way anybody could think so now.
>>119048230 >originality You can expect it inasmuch as you can expect originality from ANYTHING AT ALL. I mean, we've got what, 6000 someodd years of written human culture? When you get down to it basically everything has been "done" many times. But that doesn't mean that each new take can't have original elements or be executed well, and that subtle variations can't matter.
As far as yuri goes I think that it's going through the same sort of curve that everything does. At first there was so little that anything at all was unique, as more and more volume comes out certain ruts emerge but also people pushing the limits or bringing different takes on it, the standard 90/10 rule and so on.
At this point any individual work should just be judged on whether it's enjoyable or not, there's no need to give anything a pass. You can argue there never was I guess but as a practical matter in the 90s/early 00s yurifags had so little that the temptation to where rosegoggles was natural enough. Now though it's just another genre with plenty of variety and that includes lots of complete garbage including transparent pandering and authors who simply suck.
I started it when the first chapter of the Matsuri arc came out. Everything from chapter one up until the end of the Dad arc was absolutely fucking fantastic. Paced great, good character development, great art. Then Matsuri started and I had two months at a time to be pissed off and blue balled between each and every chapter. I thought it had jumped the shark and become shit until I reread that arc when it finished up. Surprise, surprise, it was almost just as good as the first two parts, but with a bit of a drop because it does feel like she's just introducing soap opera plot elements to drag the story. At the end of the arc Mei had some clear character development and it seems like Mei and Yuzu are moving in clear paths. Now with the new arc I'm pissed off again because yet another fucking plot stalling soap opera-esque development has arrived off the train and will keep the two girls from finally fucking. I realize,however, that these new characters will only be used in the end as a means to bring Yuzu and Mei closer together and there will probably be one or to more of these kind of arcs before the story ends. I will hate Saburouta for it now, but love her for it in the end because I have full confidence it will read as well as the first three arcs do.
Citrus will be hailed as a classic when it finishes if it continues to be this good and doesn't go on too long. It does "throw totally unrelated out of nowhere obstacles at each other" a lot, but "any semblance of progress between the two leads is reset when the new obstacle arrives" does not happen. There is development in every chapter and arc, it is just moving slowly because Mei is emotionally stunted. Citrus is good, but only when read and considered as a whole. The serial format and two month gaps really hurt the story.
>>119047707 Sure as fuck not that one. I don't hate Citrus but it's like bad anime that /a/ has fun with but everyone knows is basically junk food, fun to snack on from time to time but empty and bad for you in large portions. It's the Guilty Crown or Valvrave or whatever of yuri.
Not yet, but I'll be fully prepared to accept it as the best when it's finished as long as it doesn't fuck anything up too bad by doing things like NTR Yuzu or fast forwarding to the future and finding out that the girl's are straight but went through a phase. I will also probably consider it going too far if it continues past any already set up future new characters or possible arcs (Harumi's sister, something else with drill hair, something with Harumi, maybe the glasses girl who had like one page).
