I enjoyed it. Reminded me a bit of Manji, though with a lot more anime sleeze. The show worked for me as a kind of skewering of yuri & the "eternal bond" as a concept - namely the whole dumb notion that lesbians are just practicing & that it's not really cheating if with a woman. Could probably have toned down the titillating parts which at times did leave it feeling like one of those edited for TV skin flicks that's had all the explicit stuff cut out. But then again this is anime we're talking about.

That said, it's also the kind of story that I think might have worked better with older characters, simply because I find it much easier to see the big deal of, for example, a married woman realizing she's gay rather than a schoolgirl who's just started dating a guy.

For a trashy premise, the biggest bummer is that this show was a short and have cheap production values. I wished it got similar treatment as Scum's Wish to REALLY wring out the drama and get more reactions out of the viewers. But alas, Netsuzou Trap anime ended up looking kind of neutered compared to the manga.

I placing my hopes the Citrus anime will have a much better luck on that regard.

I remember there was an afterwords I believe at the end of Vol. 1 of the manga that wanted just that starring married couples with the whole wife cheating on her husband with another woman.

I found the entire show to be fan pandering trash, and the advances Hotaru makes on Yuma border on sexual abuse.


i am a die hard yrui fan and all, but GOD this thing is such a mess.

this along with scum's wish as well as love & lies should be on the top list for WORST SERIES OF THE YEAR!!!!!!!!
