Strawberry Panic!

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Strawberry Panic! is based on a series of illustrated short stories by Sakurako Kimino.

Strawberry Panic! revolves around adolescent girls who attend one of three affiliated all-girl schools that share a campus and dormitories. The schools are St. Miator's Girls' Academy, St. Spica's Girls' Institute, and St. Lulim's Girls' School.

The main protagonist of the series is Nagisa Aoi, a ninth grade girl transferring into St. Miator. When Nagisa first enters the campus grounds, she is so overcome with joy and runs so fast that she accidentally stumbles down a hill and becomes lost. Nagisa comes across an older student (who is later revealed to be an important person on the campus), and Nagisa is overcome by the other girl's beauty. After the girl kisses Nagisa on the forehead, Nagisa collapses.

When she awakens, Nagisa finds herself in the school's infirmary. Nagisa's new roommate, Tamao Suzumi, is there waiting for Nagisa to wake up. Tamao takes Nagisa around the campus. Over the course of the series, Nagisa is introduced to students from all three schools.

From Miator, focus is put on Nagisa, Shizuma Hanazono (the older student Nagisa encountered when she was lost), Tamao, and Chiyo Tsukidate (a timid first year student).

The girls who are focused on from Spica are: Hikari Konohana (a shy and quiet girl), Yaya Nanto (a rebellious girl who is best friends with Hikari), Amane Ohtori (who is admired by the other girls at the school, but she doesn't enjoy the attention), and Tsubomi Okuwaka (a first year student who gets on Yaya's nerves).

The girls from St. Lulim's who are focused on are: Chikaru Minamoto (the student council president at Lulim), Kizuna Hyuga (a very outgoing and excitable girl), Remon Natsume (who is similar to Kizuna, but not as accident-prone), and Kagome Byakudan (who is accompanied by her stuffed bear, Percival).

Strawberry Panic! focuses on the relationships that the characters build with each other. There is a very lesbian aspect to the relationships between the girls in the series. There is "fanservice" included in the series, which include shots of the girls nude or in provocative situations. Fortunately, these shots tend to be brief.

Strawberry Panic! is definitely an anime series that is unsuitable for younger viewers. Between the hints of lesbianism and fanservice, I would personally recommend the series for anime viewers who are 17 or 18 years of age and older.
