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

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.

Ichigo Mashimaro (Strawberry Marshmallow) sticks to the "slice of life" and "comedy" formula without growing stale. Its truly a must see for fans of this genera!

Story: 8/10
Based on the ongoing manga of the same name, basically its about four grade school girls and their big sister (only one is actually related to her, but they all look up to her as one) living life in Japan. I feel I should state at this point that it keeps its story as realistic as possible, so there is no princess to save, no student counsel to form, nothing! This is about everyday life! Which may be read more

"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
