If you are in anyway a fan of yuri anime, then Strawberry Panic is a bit of a rite of passage for entry into the genre. It probably garners the highest amount of fanaticism and emotionalism from its supporters and detractors. Though I wouldn’t call it a love or hate it kind of show as you might expect from that. I think of myself as a reasonably objective person and found that my opinion of it split almost right down the middle between absolute love and complete contempt.

Strawberry Panic's story centers on a new student to a prestigious all girls’ school, Nagisa read more

This is one of my favorite Yuri based anime's I have come to find. Once I began watching it, I couldn't stop. If you really want an anime that you can get into whole heartedly it is this one. The in depth analysis on all the variety of characters makes it so you can relate to at least one of them. The play on suspense, romance, and other relationships is so perfect for anyone who is into anything that may make your eyes tear up.

I really should not have enjoyed this series nearly as much as I did. As a bit of a technical story snob, I usually find that well-animated and voiced series with somewhat weak storylines tend to rate quite poorly with me. I find myself dropping them, or rating them well below a seven, but this series just has that something compelling about it that makes you enjoy it thoroughly-- despite some glaring problems with the plot. If I had to sum this series up in two words, it would quite easily be: Guilty pleasure.

It is one of a very small number of series that read more

For my first yuri, it wasn’t as shocking or surprising as I thought it would be. I guess it’s because of the look and feel of the anime – the girls didn’t really look like they would engage in such “activities” – they all looked very innocent and sweet. It’s a good thing the anime focused more on the dramatic side than sex scenes. There weren’t a lot of sex scenes too, which is a huge sigh of relief for me.

Poor Nagisa. She’s obviously straight when she first came in and Shizuma had to corrupt her mind. I don’t get how Shizuma would fall for read more

Anime: Maria-sama ga Miteru
Strawberry Panic is really the same principle, just the drama's less heavy and they take the shoujo-ai/yuri subtext further and out into the open.

Both stories are engulfing elite school life.

Anime: Shoujo Sect
While Shoujo Sect is hentai, and Strawberry Panic only... let us call it borderline hentai, they're both well-made yuri anime, and should appeal to roughly the same audience.

Anime: Kannazuki no Miko
If you enjoyed yuri anime's and you found strawberry panic to be one of your favorites so far, then you definately also need to see Kannazuki no Miko. *wink wink* hehe! And vice versa of course! Any Kannazuki no Miko fan would love Strawberry Panic. Trust me!

Anime: Sakura Trick
How has no one made this a recommendation yet? It's basically an entire school where everyone is yuri. I've heard people say they haven't seen a good yuri since this show, actually. Strawberry Panic just has more of a serious tone to it than Sakura Trick does, but both are great Yuri anime's.

Anime: Sasameki Koto
Both similar in the fact that they have yuri elements in it. They don't go overboard in the way strawberry panic does 8[ Both of these anime are funny and cute. Sasameki Koto may be a little more related to a slice of life.
