Anymore? Ichigo 100%

I would love to get this poster if there was any.

Ichigo 100% was one of my favourite, in fact my favourite of favourites at one time, until Kawashita spoiled it with the ending. I dont take side on either Toujou Aya ending or Nishino Tsukasa ending. Though I do want a happy ending with Toujou but it was the rushing and irresponsible ending that put me off. Howver, I'm still collecting the manga, and all chinese version has been released. Just wait for more stuff to make up for the free shipping from Yesasia.

I surf the official website and see of there's anything new. Apart from some new art, there's new information on its figure, Toujou Aya and Nishino Tsukasa in their school uniform.

i disagree about the ending in ichigo 100%. i personally thought manaka is better suit on nishino rather than aya. The story is wonderful. the best romance komik i ever read.. but i do hope tha mizuki kawashita would wrote more about what happen to aya? and did finally manaka and aya will be working again making a movie?

I have to disagree as well, nishino was just the perfect girl for manaka. The ending was just perfect ... i didn't find it rushed at all.

no i think that Aya suits better Manaka, but you see the great problem was that Aya never have the chance to know that Manaka really liked her even if in the end he choose Nishino, AYA war pure a naive but he tried her best she never was bitchy, but for her self steem she had the right that know that for Manaka she war really special too

Aya certainly suits Manaka better, but then even though they both love each other, they didn't confess, while Tsukasa dared to step out and fight for her right to be with Manaka. So, while Aya suits Manaka, Tsukasa earned the right because of what she did, and Aya lost it because of what she never did (I still hate Tsukasa though...).
Ending was very good, I don't think it's rushed. In the end, everyone's happy, so it's good!

If you mean the ANIME, then i'd agree with you about the *crappy ending*

As for the story, i also (like other commentators here) think that it's better off with Nishino. A promise is a promise. You need to stick to your gf no matter how many girls are falling for you. Oh well, maybe that's just... mi ^_^

P/S: Lookin around for Ichigo's wallpapers...

I am very disappointed with the ending.. I don't like nishino already

well i 100% agree with the ending...that is manaka choice and he choose it...not only aya but satsuki and many other girl also like manaka...but he choose nishino...if you say that nishino got to be with manaka because she dares to step up and tell him/take action??....than what about satsuki who chase him like crazy and take every opportunity to "seduce" manaka...but manaka din't choose her...but nishino.....so thats the path manaka choose and i totally agree with it!!!!

I disagree with the ending, simply because I thought Toujou suits Manaka more. Toujou never knew Manaka loved her, so she didn't dare to try and come out of the box and clarify on their relationship, despite that Toujou is a shy and sensative girl, unless the hot-headed Satsuki or the passionate Nishino, who came out with her own confession, and therefore like some others who mentioned that she earned the right to be with Manaka. But what upsets me is that Manaka was also cowering behind his own lack of sensation, and didn't have enough courage to clarify the relationship either. If Manaka had done so, Toujou would not have kept it inside herself too, or at least I thought that she would express herself openly if Manaka had taken the first step. None of them took the initiative simply because they were afraid that their good-going relationship might crumble if someone came out and tried to testify their love for each other, and might make the other one feeling uneasy, to the point where they might avoid each other and thus, losing each other slowly. But in the end, alls well that ends well. They bother walked a path of their desire, and they were able to chase their dreams.

i also disagree the ending, not for nishi or the cast but the ending is to rush is it too fast? in manga when i read i was schock of the ending i thought when tsukasa came back there will be alot of things will happen bcoz they are already matured. but it happen when they met manaka and tsukasa its the ending? LOL i dont agree with it but for me nishino very very suit's for manaka and i also thought the AYA is for manaka but AYa was too late to say it to manaka as well, coz tsukasa was fighting for her right to manaka..

aw is it the ending? when nsihino came back and she meet with manaka? lol i think its not a good ending coz it is so rush they dont even get married LOL and i thought that AYA is the one suited for manaka but i like nishino for manaka i never expected the ending lol but the ending is too rush..
coz when i read the manga and it just suddenly ending? LOLZ but the story is great i just wonder what happen to them when they meet again tsukasa and manaka and it was the ending lol.. but i like nishio for manaka 100%

Hey, the ending is too fast. What will happen after Nishino finished her study, and what about Manaka dream to make movie from Toujo script, how about their live, it didn't mention at all. I think Mizuki Kawashita must continue that story whith ichigo 200% perhaps.

The ending blew, gg.

I like nishino a lot, nishino is my type of girl. But they should have continue the story of what happen after to both of them or may be they should make another manga ICHIGO 100% second generation lol

lol I find it funny that everyones arguing about whether it should have been toujou or nishino but not satsuki. Though I liked the ending, I think Manaka and aya would suit each other more. Satsuki wasn't one of my choices cause personally I think Shes just trying to get manaka to sleep win her... -.-"

Mm, I have to say, I didn't quite like the ending to the anime. However, I loved the ending to the manga.

Reason being is because I also think that Nishino Tsukasa and Manaka Junpei are best suited for each other.

I thought that the ending sucked. It seemed like the author just wanted to avoid a potentially cliche finish, so he/she made a last-minute decision to make it end the way it did. The rest of the story made it worth reading though.

I've just finished the manga.. I hope that the author make some alternate anding for aya or continuing aya's stories till she found ... i can't see aya keep going like this.. sob.. Aya's love is so deep compared to anyone else.. i wonder if there is a girl like that.. (it couldn't be)

To be honest this manga had one of the most beautiful love stories ive ever read....that was until the end. And to get things strait i liked all 3 girls so as long as the story would support it wouldnt have minded which one he choose, but in my opinion the author randomly decided the change the outcome about ...10 chapters to the end? until about chapter 100 it could have been anyone but after that everything hinted soooo strong at aya. I mean nishino and manaka had beautiful scenes, but compare those to the ones with aya. i mean the movie confession was soo emotional!! also if its going to be nishino why just why keep focus on aya?? they even got the same number during the school festival!! and then she even kisses him!! and then suddenly booom its over?!?! i was like wtf? the ending was just sooo rushed. and what i hated even more was that time skip. i mean they dont live too far apart and he whole group never i repeat never saw or talked to each other again for years?? yeah right that realistic. Sorry if it sounds as if im a big aya-manaka fan but its just that the story mainly but slowly build up their relationship during the whole manga, even after him rejecting her. if im not wrong aya got more appearances than anyone else and then suddenly not even very well developed he stays with nishino?! come on that could have at least been developed so much better.
In short: im just trying to say that the ending just didnt fit the overall development of the manga and that just ruined it for me :( again this is just my opinion so people are free to disagree :)

Noooo, Nishino was perhaps the worst pick for Manaka. Sure, you can say Tsukasa was the cutest or the best girl, I'll let taht go. But she was the worst one for Manaka. All throughout the series, Aya is the one who seems the right girl for manaka (at the end, even the fortune teller says it!). Nishino and Manaka are always awkward together and their goals are so mismatched. manaka FAILS at this goal to be a director, had he been with Aya he would have succeeded (this is a definete; not opinion). Instead, Nishino leaves him and potentially fails her own goal (marrying the chef would have helped; this is more opinion though).

I love the story of the manga from chapters 1-166. I COMPLETELY DISAGREE with the ending of Ichigo 100%. Since the start I hated Nishino Tsukasa, and I hated her even more when she started secuding and fooling Manaka. Especially the part when she said, "I lied to you because I like you?" What a stupid excuse. I personally think that the best pair for Manaka would be Toujou Aya, who shares the same dreams, that 1508 thingy and she was the girl he fell for back in that fateful day of their middle school. It was actually because of her that he confessed to Nishino. Well, I actually think he's such a moron who thinks only one girl would wear strawberry panties. For Toujou-Manaka fans, we have Komiyama to blame, for challenging him to confess to Nishino.

Well, the turn of events from vol. 16-18 was great, and it would have been better if these stuff took place, considering that Nishino is Manaka's girlfriend again...
(note: ◘-means it took place, and •means it would be great if...)
◘ Satsuki made a promise that they would remain best friends.
◘ The fortune teller told Nishino that her pair was 0247, not 1508.
◘ Nishino and Manaka came across Aya and Shoutaro (or whatever his name is), and discovering that he was her brother, not boyfriend
◘ Nishino felt Manaka was relieved, knowing that
• Nishino should have acknowledged how Manaka really felt, and just let him go. Better if she accepts Higure Ryuuichi's engagement offer
• Manaka should have asked her "love sanctuary number," she would say she doesn't know (coz she really doesn't) then Manaka should rush to the shoe rack thingy and find the same number as his
◘ Toujou pulled off her epic confession
• Manaka should have hugged her and told her how he felt about her. It wouldn't be a problem to Satsuki, now Manaka's 'best friend'

If these stuff just happened, it could have been the best. They would have ended up together.

I think it was more like aya was like manakas soulmate in terms of how connected they were and as such they would always love each other even if it wasnt romantic. I was surprised nishino was chosen but then I remembered how sad it was when she left for paris so I can see them wanting to get back together.

i would say nishino was the perfect choice. aya just seems like a good friend i couldn´t work together with my girlfriend and nishino..she and manaka were very good lovers although they knew each other best, there was still fire in it. aya and manaka knew each other good but i think that would be a too boring relationship...

Tsukasa deserves it for all the sacrifices she, such as going to a different high school

Also, she's mature, understanding, and honest..the best girl in Ichigo 100%

This is the best manga i've ever read. This manga left me heart-broken with the ending, hahaha!

I just can't agree with the ending. Totally dissapointed about it. Aya suffers way to much~

Aya's chance is totally blown by the water bucket on chapter 163. What if she dodge it?
Then she wouldn't have any misunderstanding with Junpei about the wet bra and won't met his brother downstairs to make the curious Junpei depressed.
Then Junpei won't run to Nishino and ask her out under his own depression. [He's a damn stupid boy!]

Ah... what a twisted fate... Poor Aya.

M> It's hard to find Ichigo 100% figure nowadays. It's 4 years since the it's serialzed/animated.
The 2 figures above were limited edition, I believe, don't think you can find it for sale anymore.

Try Ebay for possible Ichigo 100% figures.
