Was this one of the Yuri manga that got a lot of votes in that anime adaptation voting thing from February? Didn’t think the world was yet ready to see this get adapted but it’s happening so…okay then.
Plot Summary: “High-schooler Matsuzaka Satou has a reputation for being easy, but one day her lifestyle of sleeping with one boy after another comes to an end. It happens when she meets the child Shio, for whom she is convinced she feels true love for the first time. Satou may seem sweet and innocent, but there is nothing she won’t do to protect their life together, including committing murder. But from where did she acquire the little girl, and how long can their “Happy Sugar Life” together last?”
Update 2: As reported HERE the anime is set for a Summer 2018 premiere.
On one hand I’m happy another yuri manga is getting an anime. On the other hand I’m wondering why it’s so difficult for simple yuri manga where the story is nothing more complicated than “two girls or women falling in love” to get an anime. Why is it so easy for stories where lesbians have to overcome a gajillion obstacles to get their happy ending or set in a situation where the chances of victory are nigh impossible?
So the challenge with this anime will be two fold:
1: Convince the mainstream that an extreme yandere lesbian (think Mirai Nikki) in love with a little girl (who also cares deeply for her) is a likable babyface.
2: Have the mainstream be cool with an age-gap yuri couple.
Speaking of…ME AND MY BIG MOUTH! Last week as of this post I wrote a tweet saying how much I wanted more age gap yuri anime because there have been several age gap het anime already. Well I got my wish…though not one I expected…so be it. I did post another tweet saying I will watch ALMOST any Yuri anime or read ALMOST any Yuri manga out there so ultimately I’m very intrigued.
What I do know is the mainstream will have a field day with this one if the criticism Citrus had been receiving from whiners and the Maidens of Michael fiasco on Steam are any indication.
Well. Get hyped…or not. It’s up to you.
