St. Miator

    Nagisa Aoi 
Voiced By: Mai Nakahara

Nagisa Aoi is the main protagonist of "Strawberry Panic!" Nagisa transfers to an all-girls school named St. Miator Girl's Academy, the result of her parents traveling overseas for work, whereas Nagisa chose to stay behind.

  • All-Loving Hero: She cares about everything and everyone.
  • Big Eater: She has a large appetite, especially for sweet foods.
  • Cool Big Sis: Toward the younger students.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Matching red hair and red eyes.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Nagisa has Tamao and Shizuma practically fighting over her. Chiyo also but to a lesser extent.
  • First Girl Wins: The first girl in the series to make an appearance and the one to become an official couple with Shizuma at the end.
  • First Kiss: Shizuma, Episode 12.note  In the manga, it's in the woods at the end of Chapter 12.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She is seen taking care of the plants in the greenhouse (even before she knew they were under Shizuma's care). In the manga, she kisses a fallen butterfly and seemingly it comes back to life and flies out the window.note  She'll gladly give up her umbrella to anyone without one and is seen doing it.
  • Genki Girl: Quite a bundle of energy. Shown to be able to cram effectively enough to pass all her Term 1 finals (including her worst subject, French) and then test the next day on only two hours of sleep per night and continue this for a week.
  • The Heart: This trait is apparently quite distinguishing, as Amane Ohtori from Spica had commented that the other Miator students remind her of 'caged birds', but that Nagisa is extraordinarily different. One might theorize that she is one of few Miator students not deeply enmeshed in that school's traditions and customs and therefore more free-spirited and more likely to act according to her own impulses, rather than according to expected patterns. She certainly has a gift for energizing her surroundings and the people around her.
  • The Heroine: The main protagonist of Strawberry Panic.
  • Hope Bringer: For Shizuma and Tamao.
  • Instant Fan Club: Shizuma's open interest in her makes her an on-campus celebrity.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The light to Shizuma's dark.
  • Morality Pet: For Shizuma and to an extent, Tamao.
  • New Transfer Student: And Naïve Newcomer because of it.
  • Nice Girl: One of the nicest characters in the series.
  • No Sense of Direction: Which led to her first meeting with Shizuma.
  • Oblivious to Love: Doesn't pick up on Tamao's romantic feelings for her.
  • Onee-sama: Doesn't fit the characteristics, but she's looked upon like this by the younger students, particularly Chiyo.
  • Post-Kiss Catatonia: Frequently falls victim to this by Shizuma. After their underwater kiss in episode 12, she appears to be in a daze afterward. Even a good, hard stare from Shizuma is enough to paralyze her.
  • Replacement Goldfish: To Shizuma in the beginning. Over time this fades and is replaced by Shizuma's Second Love.
  • Second Love: For Shizuma.
  • Sweet Tooth: Nagisa has a fondness for them.
  • Tareme Eyes
  • Uke: Of the Yuri Genre variety.

    Shizuma Hanazono 
Voiced By: Hitomi Nabatame

Shizuma Hanazono is the current Etoile. She is a highly respected and much beloved person to most of the other students attending the three schools. She looks very mysterious and also seems to have a number of secrets to match this visage. This makes her a difficult person to figure out or to even talk to, for someone just meeting her.

  • Anguished Declaration of Love: The Grand Finale sees her interrupt the Etoile Election to publicly profess her love for Nagisa. Nagisa is initially hesitant, but accepts, and runs off with her.
  • Big Good: Part of being Etoile.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Much of the time, she doesn't enjoy the dull work of the Etoile, so she often finds ways to skip her duties.
  • Broken Bird: Still not over the loss of her deceased girlfriend, Kaori.
  • Byronic Hero: In the most classical sense.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Until the finale, see above.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Reacts rather harshly when she perceives someone making a move on Nagisa.
  • Deuteragonist: Of the series.
  • Elegant Classical Musician: Plays a mean piano.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Quite conscious of this fact.
  • Handsome Lech: A female example. She enjoys the hold she has on Nagisa early on.
  • Ladykiller in Love: The only two girls Shizuma genuinely fell for were Kaori (deceased) and Nagisa.note 
  • Love at First Sight: For Kaori, and later Nagisa (to a lesser degree).
  • Mystical White Hair: And she's mysterious to boot.
  • Nature Lover: Always found walking in the forests, looking at trees and flowers, or tending the Etoilé greenhouse.
  • One Head Taller: Than Nagisa, illustrating the Seme-Uke dynamic between the two of them. (Possibly justified due to the age difference).
  • Onee-sama / Seme: Possesses characteristics of both archetypes. Older, taller, rich, aggressive, possessive, and more mature than her counterpart and love interest, Nagisa.
  • The Ojou: Downplayed somewhat, but she does own a summer home a short distance away from the campus.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Even with her hair in a ponytail, it reaches beyond her knees.
  • Really Gets Around: After Kaori and prior to Nagisa, it was said that she had a new girl every month.
  • The Slacker: Would rather do anything else but her duties as Etoile, much to Miyuki's frustration. note 
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Saves all of her sugar for Nagisa. Lampshaded by Miyuki in Episode 18.
  • "Take That!" Kiss: Believing that Miyuki has never known what it’s like to love and lose, she does this to her, resulting in a slap.
  • The Tease: A particularly cruel one for Miyuki.
  • Tsurime Eyes: In contrast to Nagisa.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Shizuma has silver hair.

    Tamao Suzumi 
Voiced By: Ai Shimizu

Tamao Suzumi is Nagisa's roommate. She is the first person Nagisa gets to get to know at the school and Tamao even helps Nagisa by showing her around the campus by introducing her to several of the other students as well as visiting the campus buildings.

    Miyuki Rokujou 
Voiced By: Junko Noda

Miyuki Rokujou is the student council president of Miator. She tries her best at doing her job in keeping everything in line.

  • Armor-Piercing Slap: To Shizuma after her "Take That!" Kiss.
  • Arranged Marriage: She's to be married to a man after she graduates.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Often, when Shizuma neglects her duties as the Etoile, Miyuki gets annoyed at her and scolds her about it. This behavior makes the two seem more like a mother-child pair than as classmates.
  • Broken Bird: Implied. It is implied that Miyuki has unrequited feelings for Kaori (or Shizuma) despite having to marry a fiancé decided at birth after she graduates. When Shizuma forcefully kisses Miyuki as a "joke", Miyuki sees this as cruel perhaps because she feels that this is betrayal against Kaori, which makes her slap Shizuma. Alternately Miyuki could have been hurt by the kiss because Miyuki was unable to act upon her romantic feelings for Shizuma, and Shizuma's forced kiss was a reminder of that restriction - especially once Shizuma says the kiss was a joke, implying that Shizuma does not have romantic feelings for Miyuki and thus rubbing salt into Miyuki's wound.
  • Blue Oni: To Shion's Red.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Nagisa/Shizuma.
  • The Stoic: Wasn't always this. Shizuma often called her a crybaby in their younger days.
    • Not So Stoic: After slapping Shizuma and Shizuma’s poorly thought-out apology, she bursts into tears.
  • Student Council President: Of St. Miator's student council.
  • Team Mom: For the entire school of St. Miator seemingly.
  • Unrequited Love: For Shizuma.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Miyuki has dark blue hair.

    Chiyo Tsukidate 
Voiced By: Chiwa Saito

Chiyo Tsukidate is a young girl who recently arrived at Astraea Hill, where she quickly became the "room temp" (a younger student appointed to perform cleaning duty as a maid for senior students, who in return receives help with studies and, presumably, other matters from those same seniors) for Nagisa and Tamao, which incidentally is exactly what she wanted.

    Kaori Sakuragi 
Voiced By: Kotomi Iwamura

Kaori Sakuragi is a former student of Astrea Hill. She attended St. Miator's Girls' Acadamy alongside Miyuki and Shizuma, who were given the task of helping her enjoy her high school experience.


    Sister Mizue Hamasaka 
Voiced by: Kaori Yamagata

Sister Mizue is an old woman who is the main person in charge of Miator.

  • Perpetual Frowner: She seems to be an angry woman most of the time and rarely ever smiles.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Only gives punishments when one of her students does something wrong.
  • Stern Teacher: Her main duties include handing out punishments and reprimanding students when they do something wrong.

St. Spica

    Hikari Konohana 
Voiced By: Miyu Matsuki

A rather shy and quiet girl most of the time, Hikari tends to not be very outspoken and it usually takes a lot for her to say what is really on her mind. Much like Nagisa Aoi, Hikari is also a transfer student, arriving at Spica in the second year. In that same year, she joined the St. Spica Choir (also known as the Saintly Chorus) with her best friend and roommate Yaya Nanto. Later, she starts to develop a crush on Amane Ohtori, and they begin showing intense feelings of attraction for one another.

    Yaya Nanto 
Voiced By: Natsuko Kuwatani

Yaya Nanto is Hikari's roommate. She is a somewhat forceful girl who also seems to look out for Hikari, who she is in love with. She often has to force herself to smile as she helps Hikari get closer to Amane, and could only watch them from afar. So far, she has tried to become closer with Hikari, but due to Hikari's interest in Amane, Yaya is always shot down. This tends to make Yaya very depressed and reserved, causing her to avoid human contact for a time.

  • Cannot Spit It Out: Actions speak louder than words in Yaya's case. This approach backfires on her in regards to Hikari.
  • The Casanova: Not apparent in the Anime, but the Light Novel has her with no shortage of admirers.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: Yaya is in love with Hikari, but Hikari has only eyes for Amane.
  • Hopeless Suitor: For Hikari.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A forceful personality with a kind heart.
  • Love at First Sight: She describes her first meeting with Hikari akin to meeting an angel.
  • Matchmaker Crush: Eager to set Hikari and Amane up, but while in love with Hikari herself.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Her rape attempt on Hikari and it's aftermath.
  • Not Good with Rejection: By the time the Finale is at hand, she's curled up in bed, unwilling to attend the Etoile election since she will see Hikari and Amane together.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches beyond her waist length.
  • Stepford Smiler: While rebellious and eager to set Hikari and Amane up, she’s deeply hurt at the fact her feelings for Hikari are not realized. Exacerbated as the series progresses.
  • The Tease: For Hikari.
  • ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

    Amane Ohtori 
Voiced By: Yuko Kaida

Amane Ohtori aka "Prince of Spica" due to her masculine look. Amane appears to be a very loved and respected member of the school, much like Shizuma Hanazono, although she is more of a local celebrity of Spica. She is often seen riding a white horse named Star Bride, which makes her seem more like a Prince (a title which Shizuma later marks her with) from a Fairy tale.


    Kaname Kenjo & Momomi Kiyashiki 
Voiced By: Sayaka Kinoshita (Kaname) and Saori Goto (Momomi)
Momomi (left) and Kaname (right)

Kaname Kenjo and Momomi Kiyashiki are Spica students and are in a relationship. Together, they are the closest thing to antagonists in the story.

    Shion Tōmori 
Voiced By: Hyo-sei

Shion Tōmori is the student council president of Spica.

    Tsubomi Okuwaka 
Voiced By: Sakura Nogawa

Tsubomi Okuwaka is a first year student who joins Spica at the same time as Nagisa is enrolled into Miator.

St. Lulim

    Chikaru Minamoto 
Voiced By: Saki Nakajima

Chikaru Minamoto, a free-minded, playful girl and natural leader, occupies several positions of authority in the school: She is the student council of Lulim, the President of the Transformation Club (where members cosplay various themes), the Secret Club (where members try to solve mysteries), and a variety of other clubs which she regularly creates.

  • The Ace: A natural leader who is also the leader of numerous clubs.
  • Adoptive Peer Parent: Acts this way for most of Lulim's girls, especially Kizuna and Remon.
  • Cool Big Sis: To just about everyone.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: Not her, but as President of the Transformation Club. She enjoys dressing her club members in various outfits, which she makes herself.
  • Harem Seeker: Mentions in passing that she came to Lulim to acquire a harem.
  • Nice Girl: She's a free-minded, playful girl and natural leader.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Seems a bit silly on the surface, but she's not labeled the Shadow Empress of Astraea Hill without reason.
  • Onee-sama: Type 1, to her younger club members.
  • Only Sane Woman: Often plays peacemaker between Shion & Miyuki, and is perhaps the only character without emotional baggage.
  • Renaissance Man: A female example. Chikaru is the head of Lulim's student council, which means she is great in any school subject. She leads the costume club and makes the costumes herself, is a highly talented actress, can cook really well and can help on any problem you might ever have. All this and more come with her being always friendly, cheerful and nice as well as being a real beauty, even for this series' standards. There is a reason why she is so popular in-universe as well as the Ensemble Dark Horse of the story.
  • The Social Expert: Very adept at handling people. In the manga, Miyuki mentions that she was able to find out sensitive information faster than ultra-competitive Spica.
  • Student Council President: Of St. Lulim.
  • Team Mom: She's the sweet, caring Team Mom who fills in when Miyuki has to play Team Dad for a little bit.

Voiced By: Ai Shimizu (Kizuna) and Ui Miyazaki (Remon)
Remon (left) and Kizuna (right)

    Kagome Byakudan 
Voiced By: Yukari Fukui
