Scene: The School Rooftop The hero (me, Junpei Manaka!) sneaks up to the roof to see the sunset. When he opens the door, he startles a mysterious beauty. She panics and runs away, but not before Junpei has caught sight of her adorable strawberry print panties...in EXTREME close-up. With that vision forever burned into his memory, Junpei embarks on a quest to find the girl, and the panties, of his dreams!

The first time I read it, it was awesome. The ending was very very nice, and something of a twist, but that was actually cause you were only expecting a twist.
The second time, it was still good, although I paused several times in completeting it. I read a different translation for the final chapter, and it took away some of the coolness of it: the first 1: "Can you make my heart flutter once more?" Second one: "Can you excite again?" Not as cool.
I have to say, now that I'm thinking back, the series doesn't seem too fun. It seems to me that the ending leaves something of a bad taste in people's mouths, which is why it recieves such bad scores. I personally think that the ending is very nice, although may have been better and different. A real slice of life ending.
The more times that you read this, the worse it'll get, basically. The ecchi is one of those "ha...." things, where it's fun to see but basically feels even more useless than average fan service. The man character is just plain annoying, damn, the indecisiveness the made way too freaking apparent. They added way too many girls in the series, probably 2-3 more girls than the series needed.
Art is awesome, just plain awesome. The mangaka is one of those very beautifully styled artists. Always between B+ to A for this artist, particularly for the girls.
The comedy... as said, is a bit based on the ecchi factor, which sort of sucks. The real laugh out loud moments are few and far between, although they exist.
There's actual romance in the story. Harem-ecchi-romance-comedy mangas are sorta... bad at that, honestly. Everyone in a generic harem-ecchi-romance-comedy is basically some incarnation of Love Hina characters, a general tsunade, but the character development in Ichigo 100 is there. Only satsuki's really a tsunade, and even that's gone later on.
And speaking of satsuki... damn, I hate the author for that. I mean, she never even had a freaking chance, did she?
Great manga with lots of emotions
First time I read this manga i was surprised at the beginning. It was awkward but intriguing. After reading on this became a highly addictive manga. The plot had a great outcome of events. The characters are great characters you really can feel attached to. When a character feels heart broken or cry you will truly feel sad ( i admit to tearing up at times yes im a wuss). This is one of the mangas that i actually thought about throughout my day. In my head it was like who will he choose? I kept thinking about it alot because i felt for the the characters. But since the connection with the characters are very strong you may be sad if your favorite is not chosen at the end. But, because its hard to please fans of all the different choices, the author did a great job trying to make everyone happy. I loved all of them and only wished for multiple endings for each different girl but this ending is still great.
The art in this manga is perfect. Girls are attractive even when their is no ecchi. The ecchi in this manga is at an appropriate level. It is used in a romantic and loving way, not the absurd "everytime i move i jiggle" type of ecchi. It is used at the right time just like relationships have.
I simply love this manga to death. The emotions you get are so strong, anger, excitement, love, sadness, pity, joy, etc. It is just an amazing read for every romantic reader. This author is amazing and this manga is one of my all time favorites. It it a great transitional manga if you just started reading romantic ecchi manga after reading all those action ninja, pirate, shinigami, etc manga.
All in all a truly magnificent read and if your reading these comments just read the manga and Im sure you'll love it.

This story is good read for people who started ecchi and harem genres. It is also good for people who like hopeless romantic story plot.
But from my experience with this genre, this is a so-so. It has slightly odd opening that people won't want to continue reading depending on their views.
But this was good, not great. It's title has represent throughout the story theme but there is always a strange sweetness that almost taste like strawberries at the scenes that might involve the strawberry underwears or the dreams that was shared.
If this story had no content of ecchi, the story would be slightly awkward to work with since it does rely on those scenes to build the character's personality and views. And the terrible meet up that left the incident in their mind.
I'm not comment on the story anymore but it isn't good enough for me to give it a 8. This is good story, but not as I thought it would be.
It leads the reader on believing that a love relationship will finally happen and does a horrible twist. It gives me the taste of dissatifation after I finished this manga. As much as I like plot twists, I can't stand the situation that created it. To me, that part was completely out of place of the story and was add-on to gradually lead the story to a quick finish.
But the plot is wonderful. The dreams and ideals were excellent, making me feel my passion for my dream grow strong.
This is a heartwarming tale about a guy with a girl with similar dreams that takes a quite a big turnabout of their lives.
I would love to present this to people who are new to this genre or love a good romance.
A beautifully written and drawn manga. Put aside the ecchi part, because this is still a magnificent manga even without the ecchi scenes. The twist of plots is just so great. All emotions - happiness, sadness, anger, jealousy etc are blended nicely. Somehow, it makes me realise not to laugh at other people's dreams. Oh, for crybabies out there (I'm not), perhaps a box of tissues is good as the story approaches the ending. Definitely a ten.
the best thing about this manga is that you can't even begin to describe the qualities that make it so great all you can really do is read it and let the story grab onto your heart.. then at the end you'll understand how powerful it was through your emotions
many elements of the plot moved me... but by far, the most impressive part of this manga is the ending.... it probably has the best resolution ever created for a graphic novel
some faults still lay in it, like the overuse of cliche ecchi scenes.. (the occurrence of them is scarce compared to other romance mangas like to-LOVE-ru and Love Hina) however.. the unique and touching plot completely covers up these trifle mistakes, which is why I give this series a perfect 10
I hated this manga. the only good point about it is the fact that it is written very well to the point that it can hook you in except from that it was a total disappointment. this manga was the very reason that i came to HATE "harem" genre. the art is likable but the basic concept is simple but the execution of that concept is really terrible. the main character's indecisiveness gets boring and hateful after the first couple of chapters. this manga is terrible and does nothing but leaves a bitter taste at the end. compared to her some of her other works such as Lilim kiss which was totally brilliant but ichigo SUCKS 100% and i think that is an understatement.

its been done a lot, but this work stands out
As another user said it, this manga is an emotional rollercoaster. In this series you will find the archetypal romantic comedy characters, but what sets this work apart from others is the author's depth and attention to character development. Being a romantic comedy manga, the obligatory 'falling over; oops I'm top of you' was present in abundance, which is something that I just cannot bring myself to appreciate; its too predictable. I am not a huge fan of the artwork stylistcally, but I must also say that the author's attention to detail in both artwork and character development is remarkable, in comparison to other shounen works in the same genre.
I didn't find this series to be very humorous. There were certainly a few LAWL moments, but they were few and far between. For me, the main character's indecisiveness and emotional confusion were frustrating, and rather hard to believe, but I feel like its a character that young adolescents can relate to.
At some points, it felt like the author was dragging things out to buy more time to develop the story further, but it seems like the author had a clear idea of how [he] wanted to end the series, and the author's focus on that goal allowed me to focus more on the present storyline. I also felt that many of the side characters that were introduced midway through the series seemed superfluous and underdeveloped.
The ending was tragically disappointing, and perhaps there aren't such things as happy endings in reality...but isn't this a shounen work? I suppose I would have appreciated the ending a bit more if this were the first romantic comedy I was exposed to.
So, in conclusion, I'd say this series is worth a read, if you don't mind lengthy reads and endings that don't make you feel fuzzy inside.

The ending was so sadd... But that's how the world works.
I think thats the best ending that 1 can actually have. its really interesting to see how the relationships developed and that junpei stayed on his love and waited for her. its the ultimate romantic end although its not the character you should like but just how innocent it is is just great... to hell those would are not clever enough to see that
Ichigo 100% was entertaining and beautifully written. It had plenty of those cute, adorable, and tear-jerking moments throughout the manga.
The artwork is amazing and the characters are interesting. I actually liked the main character. Some people rant about being indecisive, or picking the wrong girl but that's nothing. I thought the indecisivness was well managed by Kawashita. She used it to show how very difficult it is to choose when a person loves more than one person. What were people expecting? For Manaka to brush off all the other girls from the beginning and get in Aya's panties within the first few chapters? That kind of harem manga is crap. Development between the girls was moslty proportionate and it again added to the difficulty of the decision in the end.
The only complaint I have is that one or two of the girls seemed to fade out later into the story. I'd have preferred that they were not introduced as love interests or given a bigger role.
I you're looking for a manga where the male lead only has eyes for the first or *main* girl, then don't look here. If you're looking for a manga where the lead is a player, or does everything right all the time, don't look here. If you're looking for one where everyone's straightforward without shyness or embarassment, don't look here.
Read if you want a little innocent, heart-warming romance.
