Synopsis:

Asai Mugi's everyday life is very much impacted by a singular problem: she suffers from extreme shyness. Her sole friend Touyama Kayo would like to help her out as they've just entered high school, but Mugi's shyness is the sort that steals her voice entirely. It is too bad for Mugi that a freak shout on her part attracted the attention of Nono Ichinose. Nono is on a mission to save her Drama Research Society, and she isn't prepared to accept shyness as excuse from on-stage performances! With a small group of close friends to encourage and educate her, Mugi will be given a chance to be more than she is now. But, can someone so terribly shy really become a stage actress in just a few short months?

Hitohira and Piano both relate the dedication of an average girl to an activity that she put all she has into, in one case the piano, in the other theatre. The animes deal with their daily life, but also show the harships they face in their art, the motivation fluctuation and the importance of support from their friends. both anime have a very similar feel to them, calm and yet passionate.

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.

In Strawberry Panic and Hitohira, the heroine is having problems making new friends, fitting in, and adjusting at a new school. Strawberry Panic is more about general high school problems whereas Hitohira focuses mainly on Mugi Asai's problem of not being able to speak in public.

Toradora! and Hitohira are high school dramas that also include some romance and comedy. Both are about characters that don't really have a place at school growing more confident, making friends, and finding their niche. Each starts off fairly comedic, but gradually builds in drama over time (I found the endings of each to be rather too melodramatic for my tastes, but that's not to say they were bad endings).

While neither bring anything new to the genre, and are both fairly predictable, they are still very solidly well-done titles.

Tsuyokiss Cool x Sweet

Tsuyokiss Cool x Sweet

Sunao Konoe has just transferred to a new school and quickly makes new friends in the flirtatious Shinichi, loud Kinu and other classmates, but what she really wants is to form a theater club.
