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

Strawberry Panic is one of the first yuri shows that I've seen that managed to hook me through the full 26 episodes. While the anime isn't something that I'd consider to be a masterpiece, it was enjoyable.

The MAL synopsis gives you a good idea of what the anime is about, so I'd recommend reading it.

STORY: 8. Overall, the story is pretty realistic in the sense that there aren't crazy plot twists or random events that shift the story of the anime. The pace of the anime is very drawn out for 26 episodes. I felt that the pace wasn't too slow, though others might 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.

If someone would ask me what love is.. I would say.. the unstoppable and the immovable with the adequate risks of paradox involved. Love is something strong that can't be understood with mere words. Picture yourself in a fateful encounter with a person that once you met you cannot get enough of. That is the smallest fraction of what love is and can be related to in words.

For our protagonist Aoi Nagisa lies ahead a school life filled with laughter,joy,cries and sorrow as she meets Hanazono Shizuma, a mysterious figure of little words and a great deal of feelings. Feelings that blossom like a beautiful 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: 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.

Anime: Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl
Girl-girl romances, or yuri. However not porn yuri, actual anime with fantastic stories and tensions.
