The two longtime companions seem to have feelings for each other, but school, other relationships and additional obstacles continue to stand in their way. Will Mikako and Tsutomu ever be together?

Oniisama e... and Gokinjo Monogatari are shoujo character dramas that are as wonderful as they are melodramatic. The main difference is that Gokinjo is cute while Oniisama is elegant, a distinction that affects the art style and the types of drama in each series.

Natsu e no Tobira

Natsu e no Tobira
  • Movie (1 ep x 60 min)
  • 1981

Fifteen-year-old Marion is intelligent, handsome and loved by everyone at his French boarding school, but the boy holds nothing but disdain for both his classmates, and himself. For Marion is devoted to rationalism, believing that emotions such as anger and love are unnecessary – even sex is merely a means of ensuring a species' survival. But deep down, this attitude is simply a façade that was carefully constructed to protect Marion's naivety and fragile emotions, and when a chance encounter brings a seductive adult woman into his life, even he won't be able to retain his icy exterior...

Though the gender makeup of their casts are completely opposite, both anime are based on manga from the early, overly-melodramatic days of shoujo. Both are filled to the brim with tragedy, flowers, sparkles, lust, innocence, needlessly-dramatic music, unrequited love, and oodles of painting-esque still frames. In short, both are marvelous.

Strawberry Panic

Strawberry Panic

On Astraea Hill stand 3 prestigious female-only academies known as St. Miatre, Spica, and LeRim; and though the schools are separate, they share a single campus and dormitory. Nagisa Aoi is a 10th grader who has decided to transfer to St. Miatre's Girls' Academy. Though her transition has been smooth so far, while exploring the campus Aoi inadvertently falls down a hill, sees the beautiful Shimuza, and promptly (not to mention embarrassingly) faints. Nagisa continues to see Shimuza out and about, but soon discovers that she is the "Etoile" -- a well respected girl within all of the schools. With Shizuma taking a liking to the new transfer student Nagisa, secrets of Shizuma's past will unravel over the coming school year.
