Junpei Manaka is on the cusp of high school, and he's obsessed with only one thing: movies. He has dreams of becoming a director one day, and often goes out and daydreams of the movies he wants to make on the roof of the school.

One day while going there, though, he catches a glimpse of a beautiful girl... and her [[PantyShot strawberry-print panties]]. For the first time in Junpei's life, he notices the opposite sex. It also helps that the mystery girl left behind a notebook, filled with a story that Junpei can't put down (and would make, in his opinion, a great movie). Obsessed with this mystery girl, he isn't sure where to turn... shy bookworm Aya Tojo, whose name is in the notebook, or confident school beauty Tsukasa Nishino, who ''outright told him she was wearing strawberry-print panties''. Of course, [[UnwantedHarem other girls eventually start showing interest in Junpei]]...

By manga artist Mizuki Kawashita, it ran for several years, has been adapted to anime, and has appeared in ''JumpSuperStars'' and its sequel (despite being a slice-of-life high school romance). One thing that makes the series interesting is the fact that the series itself is makes it unclear who the main character will end up with, despite the assumptions one would make about this sort of series. This resulted in much uproar when the main character finally made a choice.


----
!!''Strawberry 100%'' provides examples of:

* AccidentalPervert: Junpei. ''All the time''.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: The girl who [[spoiler: catches Junpei while he's sneaking around Oumi Academy, and tries to make him her S&M slave]] is a '''lot''' more attractive in the anime.
* AuthorAppeal: How many times can a PantyShot be thrown in? This series seems to be an attempt to find out.
** Notable is the fact that the manga author [[ViewerGenderConfusion is female.]]
* BalancedHarem
* BeautifulAllAlong: Aya practically defines this trope.
* {{Bishonen}}: During the double date between Manaka + Nishino and Okusa + Yui. Through the efforts of Okusa, the pairings become switched leaving him with Nishino. Lampshaded when he attempts to use his "bishonen side gaze" to catch her attention, but Nishino completely ignores him, trying to find out where Manaka is. Parodied with Mukai because she sees Manaka as this, along with love bubbles and sparkles.
* BlindingBangs: Sotomura
* ButtMonkey: Komiyama. As a harem protagonist, Junpei is often subjected to this as well. Often mocked and abused, with characters remarking on the pairings he has in the series, and he initially doesn't succeed when it comes to filmmaking.
* CannotSpitItOut: Interestingly, not Junpei, who is usually forward about his emotions (when he can work them out). Aya, however, obviously crushes on Junpei from their first meeting, but can't bring herself to say anything.
* CatFight: Between Satsuki and Misuzu in chapter 58 of the manga.
* ChristmasCake: Kurokawa-sensei.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Ookusa. He's a main supporting character while the cast is still in middle high school. After they move to high school, he's rarely seen despite being in the same high school as Junpei.
* CovertPervert: Mukai, who possesses a very active imagination.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Junpei says to Satsuki, "I will protect you to the full extent of my abilities!" (meaning against the pervs in the Film Studies Club). She blushes and thinks to herself, "He just said he was going to protect me ... what the hell was he talking about!"
* DistantFinale
* {{Dojikko}}: Aya is a bit clumsy in general, but becomes a walking disaster area when flustered. When [[spoiler: told that Tsukasa broke up with Junpei]], she went into three consecutive spills.
** Junpei, due to excessive amounts of daydreaming, is a male example.
* {{Fanservice}}: all over the place, but also {{lampshaded}} by Misuzu while criticizing Satsuki and the Film Club's previous movie:
--> ''That swimsuit scene was nothing but fanservice. Don't you know that degrades the quality of the movie?''
** FanDisservice: The owners of a chain of ryokan, all related to each other, tend to place themselves in sexy poses in spite of advanced age, wrinkles and being almost as ugly as [[{{Gonk}} Komiyama]]
* FirstGirlWins: [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Subverted!]] Tsukasa wins... though to be fair, she was the first girl to express interest in Junpei.]]
* ForegoneConclusion: [[spoiler:By the ''second chapter'' in the ''first volume'' (or since the very beginning, given the not-so-subtlety in concealing her identity), the reader can already tell that Aya ''is'' the strawberry-panties girl Junpei had been soughing after. Since she usually hides behind her NerdGlasses and has her hair tied in braids when in public, it takes long for Junpei to put two and two together.]]
* FuroScene: Naturally, Junpei finds himself thrown into a bath with several of the girls.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Satsuki seemingly does this intentionally.
* GenkiGirl: Satsuki
* {{Gonk}}: Komiyama
* GroinAttack: Satsuki delivers one so hard to Manaka that he '''gets airborne and falls out an open window'''. Strangely enough, he acted like nothing had happened in the next panel.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Kurokawa-sensei
* HaremAnime
* [[ShesAllGrownUp He's All Grown Up]]: A rare gender inversion of this. In the DistantFinale, [[spoiler:Junpei is one of the last people to show up at the gang's three-year reunion, and he is ''jacked''.]]
* IdiotCrows: Spotted in the first volume of the manga, after Manaka finds out that, while asleep, he drooled on the paper with Nishino's phone number, blurring it away.
* ImagineSpot: Those panty shots aren't just going to happen by themselves, you know.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Yui - she's not particularly bothered by her habit of removing her clothes in her sleep. Even while in the same room or bed as Junpei.
* KavorkaMan: Manaka. He's not ugly, but there's no apparent reason why he should catch the attention of so many beautiful girl. Gets point because one of the people who [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this to Manaka is ''Tsukasa Nishino'' herself ''when they were dating at the start of the manga'' (she then concluded that her standards wouldn't allow her to fall for a worthless person, so Manaka had to have hidden qualities she had noticed unconsciously. [[spoiler: She had actually noticed them consciously well before getting the declaration, but had forgot about him until that fateful day]]).
** Having one of the main girls lampshade this in Manaka's face becomes a RunningGag, with a particularly [[HilarityEnsues funny]] occasion having Tsukasa and Satsuki describe the boy they like as a KavorkaMan only to realize they're ''both'' describing Manaka and start glaring at each other, with Tojo silently joining the lampshading when she tries to console Manaka with a sad smile. Still, Nishino is the one who does this most often.
** ''[[{{Gonk}} Koyama]]'' later joined the club when [[GoldDigger Chinami]] [[FilleFatale Hashimoto]] genuinely falls for him, and gets immediately lampshaded when the ''entire Film Studies Club plus Mukai and Amachi'' find out and nearly get an heart attack. She later dumps him... Except that the DistantFinale implies they got back together, in secret to prevent a scandal from ruining her idol career.
* LikesOlderWomen: Sotomura. For all that he obsesses over taking pictures of cute girls for his webpage, he's actually interested in his teacher, Kurokawa-sensei.
* MarshmallowHell: Junpei is subjected to / blessed with this at regular intervals.
* MeasuringDay: Treated as SeriousBusiness at the all-girls' academy attended by Yui and Tsukasa. And guess who's there to accidentally witness it?
* NamesToKnowInAnime: Has a star-studded cast: Creator/MamikoNoto as Aya, Creator/NanaMizuki as Yui, Creator/SanaeKobayashi as Satsuki, Creator/YujiUeda as Sotomura, Creator/KanaUeda as Kozue, plus some other fairly well-known names.
* NerdGlasses: Aya hides behind these.
* {{Omake}}: The final [=OVA=] episode is an expansion of one of the manga omakes.
* {{Otaku}}: Junpei's obsession with moviemaking often comes off like this, to the extent that he becomes pretty much the last boy in class to even ''notice'' the opposite sex.
** Sotomura also qualifies, due to his "Beautiful Girls I've Found" web page.
* PantyFighter: Apparently where Satsuki draws her fighting style inspiration from.
* PantyShot: practically OnceAnEpisode, though some are just Junpei's fantasies.
* PornStash:
** Later in the manga, Nishino [[spoiler: visits Junpeis' house and sleeps in his bed for the night and]] finds Junpeis' porn stash under his bed. Junpei is tremendously [[LuminescentBlush embarrased]] but soon becomes furious when she tells him that she moved it for "Safer Keeping."
** Aya finds it at one point and accidentally ruins one of the magazines. Junpei claims [[IHaveThisFriend that it isn't actually his]], because he doesn't want to look like a pervert. Aya, in response, is almost too nonchalant about it - she knows from her brother that boys "just have magazines like that"... and buys Junpei a replacement for the one she ruined.
* SexySoakedShirt: The girls' shirts and blouses regularly get wet and see-through, either as a result of falling into oceans, fountains and pools or having drinks spilled on them.
* ShrinkingViolet: Aya; Mukai
* StatusQuoIsGod: You'll think the character relations have changed over the course of, say 40 chapters. Then, bam, the comic ends up right back where it started, ready for round two.
* SittingOnTheRoof
* StrawberryShorthand
* ThemeNaming: The family names of the girls all have the kanji for a cardinal direction in their names[[note]]'''Nishi'''no = west, '''Tou'''jou = east, '''Kita'''oji = north, '''Minami'''to = south[[/note]], while Junpei's last name has the kanji for "middle".
* ThirdPersonPerson: Yui; Chinami
* ThoseTwoGuys: Komiyama and Ookusa, at the start of the series. After the cast move into high school, Ookusa more or less disappears (although he is in the same high school as Junpei) and is replaced by Sotomura.
* TokenMiniMoe: Yui, who also has the [[ACupAngst smallest chest]] in the show.
* TwelveEpisodeAnime: To detrimental effects.
* TwiceShy: The whole reason why [[spoiler:Junpei and Aya DON'T end up together]].
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] -- Yui never displays any serious love interest in Junpei.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Yui id afraid of dogs.
