Strawberry Panic, the first yuri light novel in North America, is set at Astrea Hill, where three exclusive all-girl schools converge. At St. Miator Girl's Academy.
This series really does show that love can transcend upon people of the same gender. And I do not in the least feel any regret towards reading this.
Now because of the novel, I'm watching the show.
It's slightly different but it does not affect my liking to it overall. I did a lot of research before I decided to download the omnibus novels for my collection. I had planned on watching the anime and reading the manga but found out that it had an unfinished story that only continued in the novel.
Thus, I discovered Light Novels and immediately fell in love.
Strawberry Panic was originally a story that was published in a magazine where readers could vote on their favorite couples. From my understanding, it was a mixture of the visual novel genre and choose your own adventure. I really wish I read Japanese, I really want to take an in-depth look at what those types of magazines had to offer.
Anyway, eventually Strawberry Panic was redesigned and reissued as light novels, then there was a manga and anime following it. I thoroughly enjoyed this series. It's definitely not for just anybody. It's got the same sort of appeal as those Rape And Rapture Romance novels you see all the time in drug stores or grocery stores.
It was beautiful. Lots of romance, lots of fluff, lots of happy endings. I look forward to starting in on the manga and eventually the anime. For me, the 5 stars is definitely personal taste. This is a series I'll likely come back to when I'm in a sad, lonely place as a single lesbian female. Anime is good too Feb 05, Annie Ortiz rated it liked it The first thing I have to say here is that I did not finish this book.
Not because I didn't like it, but because I got tired of it.
It was a huge book that didn't capture my attention enough to warrant me wanting to finish it, so I put it down and decided to read something else instead. This review will probably be shorter than my others because there isn't much for me to say about this book either good or bad. The only real complaint I have about this book is that it reads like a bad fanfiction.
The first thing I have to say here is that I did not finish this book. The writing is very, very immature and it doesn't read like a real book. Arguably, it isn't a real book, it's a light novel, but even so I've read better written light novels and this one sounded like something I wrote when I was in middle shool. Their battle for the position is just about identical to that in the manga.
In Spica, the way Amane and meets her partner for Etoile, Konohana Hikari, differs strongly from manga and anime — and it makes a lot mores sense. So does the fact that they fall in love just about instantly without much fuss. The first third of the novel is almost identical to the manga, with the creepy, servicey almost-kisses between Shizuma and Nagisa. But from there, the author seems to shed a lot of the less good stuff the story had piled on it, and manages to do a halfway decent job with what is left.
Which is not to say that this is a good story, but more on that later.
Here are some of the main differences between the versions. We learn a LOT more about the individual schools and how they work.
Spica, particularly, has some weird rules — all new transfer students live by themselves for two weeks. When you enter the Spica side of the dorms and there is no free movement allowed between the three sides, so sneaking around for those midnight tea parties is really awkward you have to ring a bell and announce your name. Hikari and Nagisa are both transfer students.
So the first usual test for the younger partner in the Etoile, which is an exam on Astoria history, is canceled completely, as neither has had time to be able to compete fairly.
See a Problem?
They get points on style, as they did in the manga. Spica council President Shion still tries to sabotage Shizuma, and fails. Tamao is in love with Nagisa, but all her pervastic behavior is disappeared, leaving a very intense girl with a crush on her roommate.
It was such a relief, let me tell you. Shizuma tells Nagisa early on about the Etoile position and how it works.
After she tries to seduce Nagisa in the library and fails, Shizuma backs off until, on the way back from the grand tour, they meet Chiyo and Tamao. From that point on, the playboy seduction ends, and she really opens up to Nagisa, and tries to be a reasonable partner. Her expressions of interest in and like for Nagisa certainly seem much more trustworthy.
Miyuki is much, much snarkier in the novel. I liked that. Kaname is the boyish, dark-skinned Kaname of the manga, not the Evil Psycho Lesbian of the anime, so she and Momomi do not appear to be a couple at all. Kaname is interested only in Amane, and Momomi just likes drama. Hikari is very lonely in the beginning, mostly because of the isolation rule.
She is not nearly as much of a pushover as she is in either manga or anime. Not the acutely embarrassed Amane of the anime, for sure.

And phew for that! Nagisa still refers to herself in third person. Chiyo is still an annoying crybaby. The midnight tea party in the center grounds of the Ichigosha dorms at the end of the manga is the same as well. With a slight difference. This was completely left out of the anime, so that long, quite tedious, arc after Nagisa learns about Kaori, in which she and Shizuma avoid one another, is never explained.
This reaction was simple, realistic, logical and not overly prolonged. Nagisa ends the book by asking straight out about Kaori, and Shizuma responds straight out by telling her. We also know why she feels that she can never commit to someone like that again…and we see that blown away early on when she meets Nagisa.

Rating 0. Shizuma is "that guy" You can say that this was the one book I actually enjoyed to read before I went to sleep.
Not really. Jun 12, Amanda rated it liked it. A lot of puppy love and dragging on and on with the "romance", but it's good. And much less open rip-offs of memes from other Yuri series.
