Shizuma Hanazono (花園 静馬(はなぞの しずま) Hanazono Shizuma?) is the deuteragonist in Strawberry Panic!.

She is St. Miator's Etoile and is known to be very popular. She is also the upperclassman of Nagisa Aoi.

Appearance[]

Shizuma is a tall and very beautiful girl with wavy thigh-length silver hair that is tied up in a ponytail with bangs hanging freely over her face, light green eyes (although there are times where they're depicted as either yellow or gold) and a feminine stature.

She is mostly commonly seen in her school uniform, but is also seen wearing feminine outfits outside of school.

Personality[]

Prior to the start of the series, when Shizuma first became the Etoile of St Miator with Kaori Sakuragi, her personality back then was first seen as very cheerful, lively, and a bit playful. Which is a stark contrast compared to the more serious and dedicated Miyuki Rokujo.

However, as soon as when Kaori passes away from the illness she's had since birth, Shizuma began to isolate herself from others and even lock up her feelings as a result.

At the point when Shizuma had first met Nagisa Aoi, and that they gradually become close throughout the story, her behavior began to change once again, much to the student council's surprise. Including Miyuki.

Over the course of the story, Shizuma is generally seen as the cool, calm, collected, as well as being hard to read and predict Etoile amongst her peers. Aside from being seen as indifferent and popular amongst everyone, she's also seen as lazy and prefers to skip out on the workload that comes with being the Etoile. Something of which annoys Miyuki Rokujō greatly.

She also has a kind of playgirl attitude as seen in the series. Once, Nagisa saw Shizuma in the woods with another student whom she was about to kiss but was interrupted and the student had ran away with a flushed face.

Background[]

Shizuma is the current Etoile who 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.

Most of her secrets and personal problems, seem to be related to her prior relationship with Kaori Sakuragi (Shizuma's now-deceased Etoile partner).

Relationships[]

Nagisa Aoi[]

Nagisa was the first to catch Shizuma's attention. She also became the center of envy as well as the attention of the whole student body when Shizuma had greeted her though she was late. At first, Shizuma states that she only wants to play with the girl for a while but it seems to Miyuki Rokujō that she is slowly falling in love with the transfer student. Also, Nagisa was the only person who had persuaded Shizuma from skipping responsibility and to attend the council's meeting.

Miyuki was utterly surprised along with the other council members. As the story progresses, Shizuma was reluctant of her feelings to Nagisa and in the end had made up her mind, that she is in love with her. During the Etoile election, she runs to the venue and makes a sudden entrance by slamming the doors. She walks to the center of the crowd, spreads her arms and shouting her feelings. The whole student body was stunned. Suzumi Tamao secretly smiled and pushed Nagisa to run away with Shizuma and forfeit in the election. Shizuma and Nagisa were running till they reached the woods, made daisy chains then shared a kiss which led to falling to the ground.

Towards the end of the anime, after a series of guilt-ridden conflicts and her own self-discovery, Shizuma realizes she is truly in love with Nagisa.

Miyuki Rokujō[]

In stark contrast to Shizuma's laid back and carefree nature, Miyuki is more serious and dedicated, due to being part of the student council. They've been roommates since their first year in Miator and were always seen hanging out, even before Kaori's passing. In spite of their moments of bantering or when Miyuki has to remind Shizuma of her duties as Etoile, Shizuma overall has a friendly relationship with Miyuki.
