Hmm... Guess you're right in that we shouldn't compare series to one another...

But of course, even if I see it as a close imitation of Marimite, I actually find StoPani very very entertaining. In fact, I like it as much as I like Marimite (in the 3 mediums of novel, Manga and Anime), even though the 2 are in different leagues at the moment.

On a personal level, StoPani has become one of my favorite spring series. Hard to believe it myself, but I guess having read the story before contributed to this evaluation. Nevertheless, I still love it despite whether knowing the story beforehand. ^____^


@ Rin-sama
LOL at the gif. That's gotta hurt for Chiyo. ^^;

No problem! Glad to see that you've come to like Shizuma's background story too.

Aahhh... finally watched this show and come back to anime world....
It's fluffy, cheesy, and very rip-offy (is it English?) and I enjoyed every minute of it.

I didn't mind the story, but I must complain for the character design. Their arms and legs are too skinny and small... =.=
I like manga and novel's artwork better.

Spoiler:

This's one from the novel, for ShizNag fans (oopss.. Isn't it familiar? ShizNag and ShizNat )

But I've decided to rooting for Hikari-samaXAmaneXYaya Threesomeee!!!! YAY for HAY!!

Haha...gotta love the St Lilim trio. Chikaru really loves abusing her position as St Lilim's Student Council president, so she can indulge in her cosplay fantasies. Her trying to imagine Nagisa in all sorts of costume is blatantly reminiscent of Tomoyo trying to dress Sakura up in CCS.

I rather enjoyed this series, perhaps it's because I have absolutely no knowledge of Marimite that I'm able to appreciate Strawberry Panic for what it is, rather than trying to compare it with Marimite and make myself miserable.

Well, you can watch Marimite and declare it a ripoff of Strawberry Panic.

Totally agree, although when it comes to the Manga and novel's artwork, I prefer Takumi Namuchi's design over Maki Chitose's. Takumi's designs are absolutely gorgeous, and they are the ones which are used in the Manga (and the novel which is based on the Manga) whereas Maki's are used in the novels based on the original short stories and the games.

Comparison of Yaya's character design

Sakai Kyuuta (Anime)


Maki Chitose (Short stories, novels based on short stories, Dengeki games series)


Takumi Namuchi (Manga, novels based on Manga)


You know... When they said that Yaya has tons of sex appeal, they certainly weren't kidding, especially when Takumi did an excellent job in highlighting that aspect of hers. *Haaaaaawt*

So which do you prefer? (TAKUMI FTW!!)

PS. Umm... That pic of Shiz X Nag... That's quite a big spoiler.

Ahaha... Sorry, my bad for bringing up topics about the original stories. Hopefully, the Anime will incorporate some of the events from the novel/Manga in the future anyway. ^_____^

PS. Of course, I'd still be happy to share some spoilers from the novel/Manga/short stories occassionally, provided that members here do not mind and if I feel up to it (I don't like ruining other fans' expectations so I'll only share if I think it's something worth sharing or there's no big risk in doing so ).

That would be great.
Theres the reason for the spoiler button; spoilers for those who want the spoilers, and if you don't like spoilers, don't press the button.
Thanks again Dav!

Yes!! Yes!! And just look at Amane and Hikari-sama:
Anime


They're rather bland here, comparing to this:

Novel

Awww.... Hikari-sama is so cute and Amane is soooo coollll here *squealing and swooning like mad fangirl*

Oooooh Yah Baby! Now that's what I'm talking about...

Episode 7 for the win.

Finally some good ol' Evil LesbiansTM that we can both boo and ogle.

Marimite eat your heart out, Satou Sei never went that far.

*lol*

That was a brilliant way to put it. "Evil Lesbians to boo and ogle". I mean... hell, SP stayed away from fanservice and sexual innuendos pretty well - until now. Suddenly, we're not only treated to a showering Amane, but rather suggestive-explicit sequences from Kaname and Momomi.

I mean - zOMG?!?

The girl I'm really rooting and feeling bad for right now is Yaya. The development between Hikari and Amane seems both genuine and requited, so she may remain the odd-girl-out. Is she going to "fall from grace" and join the dark side, or will the future give her a chance? I'm honestly not sure...

In any case, I'm definitely curious how this will develop. Going in with gloomy expectations, the show has certainly exceeded mine by far.

Oh YEAH!! Episode 7 FTW!! Who said StoPani was mild and tame ;p? Cliches-what-not, they certainly know how to deliver yuri action in full when they feel like it. Woo... It's getting hawt in here.

Great idea!! Unfortunately for me, I don't have the time nor the dedication to do it. I think by the time I've done volume 1, the Anime series would have finished long ago. Yeah, I'm just slow and lazy when it comes to doing things.

After I reading the last posts I became filled with sudden hope that this series might not be a disaster as the last episodes have led me to believe.
