    1. To be frank: this book, the story of teenage girls at a super-elite, all-girls boarding school, who fall in love in a dainty, elegant, and yet tittilating manner, is not genius. It is escapist fluff, a fantasy castle in the air where girls are pure and sweet, intensely passionate and sexual to a point that doesn't threaten. It is girls in cute costumes declaring love upon horseback and going through great obstacles to be with their beloved. Never is the outside world--or a male character--brough [...]

    2. Ever since I was introduced to the Strawberry Panic! series, I've been itching to get wrapped up within the story line as a whole. And I must say, I was not disappointed in the least. As soon as I got passed chapter 1 I found myself literally sucked into the book. You can say that this was the one book I actually enjoyed to read before I went to sleep. It's a shame that it was only 3 novels but I'm completely satisfied.The concept of the story really did appeal to me. Each character was lovable [...]

    3. The first thing I have to say here is that I did not finish this book. Not because I didn't like it, but because I got tired of it. It was a huge book that didn't capture my attention enough to warrant me wanting to finish it, so I put it down and decided to read something else instead. This review will probably be shorter than my others because there isn't much for me to say about this book either good or bad.The only real complaint I have about this book is that it reads like a bad fanfiction. [...]

    4. This was my first taste of the yuri genre. I'm not going to say much about a summary of the book because I hate doing that. Anyway, I wasn't expecting much from the book regarding lesbian experiences, since I have some knowledge of LGBT treatment in Japan. With that outlook, it was easy to get past the character of Yaya (close friend of Hikari, one half of the two main couples in the novels) being painted as a "real lesbian." Amane and Hikari seem to be the real deal, at least on Amane's end. Sh [...]

    5. I rated this book 5/5 stars, mainly because it was so much fun to read once you realized what it was. I did a lot of research before I decided to buy the omnibus novels for my collection. I had planned on watching the anime and reading the manga but found out that it had an unfinished story that only continued in the novel. Thus, I discovered Light Novels and immediately fell in love. Light Novels are basically Japans answer to Y/A literature here in the states. Think The Hunger Games reading le [...]

    6. I love Strawberry Panic in my own little way. Even though I wasn't always too fond of the anime, I was more of a fan of the novel omnibus and the manga than anything else. What made me love this series was the story line and the elements of French. But moreover, I love the serial romantic that is "l'etoile". She's mysterious and she's like that one star player dude in college that every girl wants to get with, but he ends up breaking them and their feelings into a billion piecesd his reputation [...]

    7. I really enjoyed this. However, after waiting so long for the release of the last book in the series I found myself disappointed with its lack of emotionally gripping drama. It became overly complicated with far too many subplots pulling away from the main story. If the series were a few books longer those subplots would have been fine, but in this circumstance they just made the last book a muddle. All in all, while I did like the series, and was happy to have finally read the end, I must say I [...]

    8. Never before have I read a book which so proves the difference of television (or anime), and literature.Absolute trash. The mindless cliches and melodramatic activities that comprise "successful" animes are all present here--- and when you read them, you'll understand immediately how vapid, dull, and downright atrocious these designs are.A horrible book, but perhaps a good one for anyone looking to understand why the medium of anime is in fact sensationalist garbage *mostly* as well.

    9. These books had many issues: a large enough cast to be confusing at times, too much telling rather than showing, and more than a smattering of both purple prose and melodrama. And yet I thoroughly enjoyed them because they are also adorable, sweet, and addictive. They were largely what is to be expected of a set of light hearted romantic light novels, and that's exactly what I needed to get through "the holidays" this year.

    10. i have just discovered that I, despite being fond of lesbian romance and f/f fanfics of manga full of subtext, am not really into the moe genre, if you can call it that. because the only moe I really have is for pitchers with control problems. maybe if there was a yuri property about that, I'd be all over it. what this really did was got me to identify with Nagisa, which may have been what was intended.

    11. Cherry Blossoms scattered, fluttered and were everywhere.Typical high school girl drama. Back stabbing, relationships, jealousy, forbidden love and one upping. And a lot of those girls beliefs were totally ignorant.

    12. Having seen the anime, I was surprised by how different the novels were to the series. Looking forward to reading the manga.
