Ichigo 100% is what you can call a classic Shounen, Harem, Ecchi, Romantic, Comedy manga having the typical set-up of, one "loser-kun" (Manaka Junpei) surrounded by gorgeous girls. It’s pretty easy to find this manga annoying, due to the dragged out storyline and loser protagonist but it’s just as easy to find it rather enjoyable, from the various potential relationships involved.

The story starts of with our protagonist somehow ending up with the hottest girl in the school and this being a Shounen Rom/Com makes it acceptable. Now with the dumbest thing taken care of, from this point on the reader can enjoy a really long read more

"The Times, They Are Achanging"

When I first saw strawberries after reading Ichigo (Strawberry) 100%, I just had to laugh, remembering Manaka Junpei and his strawberry-ful problems. This is the longest and one of the first manga I have finished. First off, I have to say, the anime does not do the manga justice. The former may be more flashy, but it is ruined by bad artwork, seiyuu, soundtrack and overall portrayal. On the other hand, the latter might be less colorful, but it is fortified with good length, character designs, drama and romance. Definitely read the manga first; it has the complete story from the read more

Panties in your face.

A simple yet daring sentence that sums up the situation of the start of Ichigo 100%. What more could a guy ask for?
Used panties in your face maybe. Something that almost happens in the beginning of the series because the girl didn’t take her panties off and is still wearing them. But hey, our hero is already having a nose bleed and couldn't be happier. But we can.

Ichigo 100% is a lengthy manga (for a romantic comedy) about Manaka Junpei who seeks the girl with strawberry panties. That is the whole point of the manga. At least in the beginning. Manaka sneaks read more

The first few novels are pretty much a comedy romance, but as the manga progresses, the plot gets more serious, with all the girls getting more serious.
By the last two chapters, you are completely wrapped into the series, and are holding your breath until the very last page.

I'd have to say that I wish they modeled the anime after this series, instead of that romance comedy garbage, but what can you do?

Either way, I would really recommend reading this to the very end, because it is really, really worth reading all 166 chapters.

Manga: Nisekoi
Both are good Harem titles associated with Shounen Jump. Ichigo 100% has more fanservice, if you're into that kind of thing. I feel that they had a similar feeling with a decent balance of humor and serious moments, and the characters, as a whole, are pretty interesting in both.

Manga: Suzuka
This is a very similar manga to Suzuka becasue they both revole around love that really starts around the time they are entering high school. Ichigo 100% is more comedy based as a manga where as Suzuka ia more on the romantic side. These are the two best mangas I have ever read so if you like one I would chek out the other.

Manga: Love Hina
For the harem fan who doesn't easily get deterred by redundancy... Boy meets girl, boy likes girl... 3-5 more girls enter the picture... despite his loser status, he sure does become popular... things get complicated as more and more girls fall for him... and him for them. They show their love by beating his ass. We are all amused.

same author, same premise, same delivery, same entertainment value with a refreshing twist of fanservice.

Manga: Pastel
Pastel and Ichigo100% are similar in a lot of things. The main male character is a hopeless person yet he gets surrounded by beautiful women all the time. Pastel has a much more romantic side than Ichigo though and the main male character tends to be much more reliable than Manaka. If you liked Ichigo then you will definitely LOVE Pastel. I did. :)

Both are typical but great Romantic Comedies about average guys (Manka and Ichitaka) getting surprisingly hot girls (too much to count). ^_^
