Based on the manga of the same name that ran in Weekly Shonen Jump from 2002 till 2005. Penned and illustrated by Mizuki Kawashita: Ichigo 100% first received an OVA during Jump Festa 2004 prior to the anime’s premiere in Spring 2005. Production of the Anime was handled by Madhouse and ran for 12 Episodes which were followed up with 4 OVA’s and an unreleased episode bundled with the home release. The Anime loosely adapts a couple storylines from the first couple volumes of the manga while some of the OVA’s try to shoehorn some characters that show up much later.
This was actually one of the first manga’s I ever read, prior to this the concept of a series centered almost entirely around fanservice was unknown to me, So yes this was the first taste of ecchi I ever indulged in. I love Ichigo 100% mainly because of the one and only Satsuki Kitaouji. However prior to this compilation I had never actually watched the anime… I feel as though words alone can’t describe how horribly disappointed this adaptation left me. I usually hold Madhouse in very high regard since they tend to have high production value even with the shittiest of sources… So what in the hell happened here: Everything from the horrible animation, the oddly paced episodes, and worse of all skimping the fanservice and at times even flat-out ignoring some great ecchi scenes. I did enjoy a couple of the OVA’s, If you have the time I very highly recommend the manga.
On a side note recently my MEGA account was terminated, meaning almost all of the Download Links of my previous Fanservice Compilations are down as of this moment. While I find a fix for this annoying issue you can download all of my Fanservice Compilations over on my Google+.
