Simoun

Simoun

In the world of Daikuuriku, all children are born female; but once they become a young adult, they may choose which sex they will become. In this world which is at war with itself, the women of Simalacrum find themselves charged with the task of piloting the ancient machines known as Simoun in hopes of turning the tide of war. Though originally simple ceremonial machines, the most gifted of pilots can turn the glowing "ri maajon" of their rituals onto their enemies and obliterate them from the skies using these Simoun. However, it takes a special bond between two highly gifted girls to successfully pilot a Simoun. With the toll of blood and pain that these previously innocent girls are taking, how many will be able to carry on, even knowing that they are the only real thing standing between freedom and subjugation of their land?

Simoun and Strawberry Panic are both about a young, enthusiastic, outgoing newcomer entering a world that she doesn't entirely understand but wants to be apart of nonetheless. They are surrounded by numerous other girls where they establish many close, life long relationships. Also, the group of girls in both series has a leader of sorts, a well renowned and highly respected person of great skill and incredible abilities. The leader appears cold and distant, marred by a great tragedy in her past that has left her damaged. Over time and though a series of fateful events she warms up to the newcomer and their relationship blossoms.

Though the two are incredibly different in setting, Simoun and Strawberry Panic ultimately have the same plot fundamentals while not being boringly similar. If you like one then you will most assuredly enjoy the other.

Here's an other REC for the shoujo-ai fans out there. Those two shows are conceptually pretty different (Simoun is a  Fantasy-Sci Fi show, while Strawberry Panic is more of a School-Life Comedy/Drama), but the characters and the relationships that bind them together are similar in a lot of ways. First, both series feature an all-female cast (we could argue over Simoun being all-female or no, but that's purely technical). Secondly, both series deal with a group of girls the different kinds of love that they feel for each others. Jealousy, unrequited love, deep love, you'll find all these themes in both series.

So if you happen to have a thing for shoujo-ai, or simply liked one of those two shows, I'm pretty sure you'll like the other one too!

Even if they have very different stories and themes, both Strawberry Panic and Koihime Musou share one thing in common - shoujo-ai fanservice. If you liked that element in either of these, I recommend giving the other one a go as well.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

Very different in terms of story, both Koihime Musou and Strawberry shares one thing in common which is like the most important aspect and that is the shoujo-ai aspect.While Strawberry Panic concentrates on a serious yuri relationship, Koihime Musou uses it more for Fan Service, so nothing serious just romantic comedy.If you like one of them then you might like the other one as well.

Maria-sama ga Miteru 3rd

Maria-sama ga Miteru 3rd

At the all-girls Lillian Academy, life continues at a slow page. Yumi and Sachiko attempt to elope during the holiday, but have an unfortunate encounter with some of Sachiko's old "friends" instead. Back at school, Yumi and rest of the Lillian student council concoct their next fiendish scheme: trick Sachiko into fulfilling her role as a judge at Hanadera Academy's school festival. And so, with potential petite soeurs, creepy stalkers and even creepier kidnappers to keep her life interesting (not to mention her limited “alone time” with Sachiko), the saga of Yumi continues. Luckily for the duo, their time together proves all the more precious for the trials they have to face.

both Marimite 3rd and Strawberry Panic feature similar shoujo-ai aspects (while Marimite focuses more on senpai-kouhai type of relationship, Strawberry Panic is more heavy on shoujo-ai/yuri aspects but it also feature a strong senpai-kouhai relationship) and both of them are slow-paced romances settled in a school life setting so if you like one of this two shows then you will enjoy the other one as well.

Endless29 Endless29 says...

I like both animes, one goes a lot faster and has more action on the surface, but both are funny at some points and almost make me cry on others.

I love animes that make you relate to carachters, and these two are like that.

However, her younger sister Nami doesn't have it so easy. The small-chested and sarcastic girl is in love with her best friend, who happens to be in love with Sora. Meanwhile, the slight and feminine Sora spends his evenings cooking and cleaning for the entire family while being bullied by Aki - and what's worse, he harbors a forbidden, deep-seated lust for the girl. Will Sora give into his desires, and will Nami ever win the heart of her best friend?

Both anime have sexual content but Aki Sora is on a much higher level. The main characters are drawn to sexual deviance and they try to fight against it but in the end they can't resist their desires. But note that Aki Sora is much much more explicit.

Kogoruhn Kogoruhn says...

Both Strawberry Panic and Aki Sora are about adolescent school kids who have a strong sexual desires that they attempt to deny but end up giving into.
