Hmm, where do we begin, really?
The obvious match with Maria-sama ga Miteru: Ibara no Mori (Forest of
Thorns) is so obvious, that someone on 2chana actually did a screencap
montage of the two. :-)
But I feel that the stolen memes go deeper, to basic core early yuri
Catholic Schoolgirl Lesbianism
Tragic Lesbian Love Triangle
Transfer/New Student Trouble
So along with Maria-sama ga Miteru, I'm invoking "Shiroi Heya no
Futari", the first tragic yuri manga set at a Catholic/French girls'
school. Erin will undoubtedly fill in all the others I've missed. :-)
BTW, recently, since I've begun mentioning that SP is clearly ripping
off Marimite in yuri panels, I've gotten alot of comments on the order
of either "You're wrong, SP is really great writing" or "You're wrong,
SP isn't ripping off Marimite."
I respect people's right to have another opinion, but I have to ask -
what on EARTH are they watching? This series steals so much, so
openly, from Marimite, I have to wonder where and at what are they
