I got Strawberry Panic a couple of weeks ago and I finally finished it recently. I was just taking my time to read it.
First…I’ll get to the story also, but before I explode I need to shout what has been on my mind since I first picked this book up at the store.
I love you Seven Seas!!! Make me your novel slave!
So…that’s out of the way now. Maybe I should move toward an actual review.
(Oddly enough only two of these novels are getting releases in America)
This is meant to lead up to that new category for light novels I mentioned before. I’m going to be getting to a bookstore soon, so that’s probably going to start up soon.
I’ve always been interested in light novels. Especially recently when it seems like every single anime is being adapted from light novels rather than manga. Wagaya no Oinari-sama, Kure-Nai, Allison to Lillia, and Toshokan Sensou are all based off light novels; and that’s just from the spring season (Apparently Kanokon is too, but I’m not even going to list that title with all those other good anime). And in the Summer Season there’s even more.
It seems like every other week I read some new announcement about an anime adaptation from more light novels. Off the top of my head, we have season three of Hakushaku to Yosei, and that one with the girls that transform into soda cans or whatever (I think it’s called AkiKan). I know there have been plenty of others. There was one announced really recently on ANN.
