YMMV / Strawberry 100%

  • Arc Fatigue: The second half of the manga suffered from this, specially after the introduction of Kozue, who was nothing but a blatant (if sympathetic) Romantic False Lead, and is often referred as as "filler character".
  • Awesome Art: Manga only. Mizuki Kawashita's art style, which finds a pretty good balance between realism and shonen-like stylization, is one of its main selling points.
  • Broken Base: The ending in general, albeit it depends heavily of which girl you were rooting for. Supporters like it specially because Manaka doesn't choose the girl who seemed, at least at first, the most likely choice, and concede that Tsukasa "earned" to be the one. But other's argue that Aya's personality and life goals aligned with Junpei's much better.
  • Ear Worm: Ike Ike! which sounds a bit like Vengaboys' "We Like to Party".
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Many people wish that Junpei picked either Aya or Satsuki over the actual winner, Tsukasa.
  • Hollywood Homely: Aya that, how Junpei discover In-Universe, is very cute also with her nerdy look despite its told that she is not attractive.
  • Internet Backdraft: The anime in general, which many fans like to pretend doesn't exist. Pretty surprising, considering it was made by Madhouse, but you'll be forgiven for not suspecting it, considering how cheap it looks. Also, a lot of people really disliked the fact that the show focused so much more on the humor than on the relationships, which most fans agree was the manga's strongest point.
  • Ship-to-Ship Combat: Pretty much inevitable in a harem series. The main three girls, Aya, Tsukasa and Satsuki, all have their respective share of followers.
  • The Woobie: Satsuki. If any of the girls could be labeled as a tragic figure, it would be her; despite her total devotion and physical advances, Manaka constantly rejects her. In the her last chance she ends in tears. Poor girl.
