Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...
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.
Both anime look like generic harem at start, but both deliver more than you might think. As I watched SP, I thought to myself: "this is more or less Clannad with a watered down story and no guys.. anywhere".
If you liked one, check out the other.
Both animes have a similar storyline, with a slight difference, Clannad there is a bunch of girls surrounding a boy whist Strawberry Panic deals with a few different groups of girls surround a few different girls.
The storyline is similar. Tomoya tries to help Nagisa to confront the challanges infront of her, the same Nagisa does to Shimuza ( oh and has anyone realised that in both animes there is a main character named Nagisa,) The plots are slightly different but both are set at school, Comedy-wise Clannad is slightly more funny, but it is all an personal opinion.
I would believe if you enjoy one then you would enjoy the other, unless you dislike the Shoujo-Ai genre.

While Tsuyokiss is a little bit more lively, both series concentrate on the same issue - boy and girl fighting together with school system while growing more and more fond of each other.

Legend tells of a winged beauty who was so feared that she was confined to a palace, never to leave its gates alive. She lived a life of solitude until one day love entered her life; but as cruel fate would have it, the more the young woman loved, the closer she came to her death. For young Misuzu, researching the tragic tale of the winged one was only the beginning of her summer’s journey; a journey that would be filled with the discovery of love, the pain of loss, and the exploration of the human heart.
Both Clannad and Air Movie (and AIR TV) were developed by the same company: Key. Not only as they visually beautiful in the same way, they also focus around a youth male who has various types of relationships with the women around him. Both also have a nice dosage of the supernatural without overdoing it.
