Strawberries are a popular symbolic fruit. Not quite as much as apples, but close.

They tend to signify one of two things:

  1. Extreme cuteness.
  2. Love.

They're especially popular in anime titles. The Japanese word for "strawberry" also sounds like the name "Ichigo," leading to a lot of puns. (See: Tokyo Mew Mew for a good example.)


I know there are more.
