"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated."

-Confucius


Ichigo Mashimaro is definitely a very niche anime to say the least, and one that many people might find simply dull. Despite this Ichigo Mashimaro is by no means a bad title or even an average one, as it manages to craft a unique and soothing experience through a very simple but effective formula.

STORY: 6/10

The story of Ichigo Mashimaro follows the daily lives of five girls Ana, Miu, Matsuri, Chika, and Chika's big sister Nobue along the course of a year as they live their simple daily lives and at times get into read more

Ichigo Mashmiaro is another slice of life anime set around the life of four Elementary School friends and a sister. Theres no ecchi but there are LOADS of fanservice in this show. You can tell just by watching the first episode. Its even more frequent in the ova's. Also, the power word for this show is CUTE. I cant emphasize this enough... CUTE is allover.

For some reason the chemistry between all of them really make for a unique experience. Their character traits sound so standard for a slice of life comedy but the way its executed is far better than most anime of its read more

There's something about cute girls doing cute things that compels people to watch it. Regardless if it's new or old, slice of life is a genre that's been under the radar and a little underestimated. While based around Elementary kids, it's still as good as any other slice of life, and even managed to sneak into my top 5. Ichigo Mashimaro is just a story about five girls living their life as every passing day arrives.

Sometimes simple can be better than complex. When dealing with an anime such as this, it's something that just puts a smile on your face as you watch the girls read more

Excuse me while I gush over this series, it's almost too cute to bear. I, perhaps, would have overlooked it if it wasn't for the 3 volumes of the Ichigo Mashimaro manga I have sitting on my shelf. I often find myself not liking the art in the anime if I was exposed to the manga first, but in this case I was pleasantly surprised; the characters in both were drawn very similar, almost identical. The backgrounds lack the detail of other anime, but I can't say that it bothered me much.

(If you've read the manga, you'll notice the shuffling of the chapters, the read more

While Ichigo Mashimaro was able to maintain its innocent humor across many releases, Minami-ke's first season was the only successful attempt at a funny slice-of-life anime of that particular franchise. They share the same humorous elements and can provide you with many minutes of laughter. I recommend you quit watching Minami-ke after the first season to avoid disappointment.

Both are funny in the same way that hanging out with your best friends and talking and laughing about nothing in particular is funny.
It's also a slice-of-life anime, and, of course, features cute lolis.
Though the K-ON! students are clearly older than the ones in Ichigo Mashimaro, they're both pure fun and follow the 'slice of life' genre.
Manabi Stright is another version of Ichimashi.. I mean, little girls and their lives..

Slice of life, Comedies. Kyouko reminds me Miu; Yui reminds me Chika. Their personalities are the same and is a very good combi!
