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...
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.
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?
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.
Momo is loud, shallow, a player, a betrayer, and one to best stay away from -- or at least, that's the misconception people have when they see her makeup, bleached hair and suntanned skin. In reality, Momo just wants the same friends, hobbies and crushes any girl her age would like. However, when her only friend starts spreading rumours about her, her boyfriend starts to doubt her, and the most popular boy in school starts to take a more then friendly interest in her, she'll have much more to worry about than just her appearance!
In both Strawberry Panic and Peach Girl, the main heroine is sought after by multiple characters, and she can't decide who to choose. Both series also revolve around high school drama. Even though Strawberry Panic is a girl/girl series Peach Girl has all of the components that make the high school drama a reality in Strawberry Panic. I think the two series are very complementary of one another.
A Japanese high school can be a strange place – or so it’s been told. However, as critical thinking is not the strong point of our freshman heroine Eriko, even the most outrageous stories are likely to come true. Going through the motions of high school life with a flair and panache that can only be gawked at, Eriko and her old and new friends set a new (low) standard for the typical coming of age drama. Cry with them as they fight adversity and learn the importance of trust and friendship in this cruel, cruel world; laugh with them during the incomparable happiness of the seemingly never-ending springtime of youth; and finally, laugh AT them, when they constantly manage to show their panties in public!
Ecchi is prevalent throughout both series and there are a great deal of lessons the characters must learn. Strawberry Panic does involve only girl/girl action, however, both series are about a group of girls just trying to make it through their high school lives while learning important lessons along the way. High School Girls is more of a comedy-based series whereas Strawberry Panic tends to be more serious in nature.
The season has turned to spring, and it's graduation time for the Rosas of the yamayurikai (the student council). While graduating is step towards a greater future, it also forces the girls to sadly part with their petite soeur. In addition, the en boutons, who are next to become full-fledged Rosas, now have to shoulder the full responsibility of the student council. With the new first year students lined up to attend and the soon-to-be-alumni on their way out the door, this truly is a season of change...
Strawberry Panic and Marimite are almost alternative tellings of the same story, SP being more overt in its yuri themes while Marimite is more subdued. With ~Haru~ there is more drama and the romantic implications between the mostly female cast become somewhat clearer, making it even closer to the melodrama of Strawberry Panic.
