Strawberry Panic

Jul 31, 2011

I was a bit reluctant to start this anime. I added it to my list, and later removed it because of the 3-star rating. After glancing over the mix of reviews, I decided to give it a try.

I was immediately struck by the number of lesbian relationshps. To me, it seemed like too many, but it was my first shojo-ai anime. It was probably normal, I thought. I'm glad I stuck with it. It turned out to have plenty of unexpected plot twists. It knew that something terrible had to happen, but it always occured just as I forgot about my suspicion.

There was one thing I didn't like, though. The ending credits song is always happy and cheerful, and this ruins the dramatic/sad endings of many of the episodes. I recommend this for any shojo-ai fan, or one who wishes to try the genre out-- just stop the episode before the ending song, please.
