I didn't know it was even licensed? Oh well. It's nice for it to be on Viz Anime, even if Canadians can't watch it. Smile

Ike Ike!!

I always loved hearing the music from the old Six Flags commercial in the ending theme for Ichigo 100%

Can't say much about the rest of the anime though. Just an average shounen romance/harem thing. I do think he picked the wrong girl in the end though.

I liked Hatsukoi Limited, which is from the same manga author I'm pretty sure (character designs the same at least), quite a bit more.

Theres really only 13 full episodes not 26. Each one is really 2 15-minute "episodes". So, Viz is really only streaming eps 1-5 of 13 (or rather, 1-10 of 26)

The OVA's are a heckuva lot better then the series, with the manga trumping everything. Still, it's nice to see an older series brought over....now will you please bring us Lovely Complex!!!

Thank you for that information I already knew. The beat used in part of Ike Ike is from the Vengaboys' song "We Like to Party" (which is where Six Flags got the music for). Hinoi Team just stole the beat and added a para-para dance to it, as is common.

Agreed. I'm not a shoujo fan, but I would snatch up Lovely Complex in an instant.

Yeah, even Yoko Kanno does it. Laughing

I thought the anime blew compared to the manga, but it's good to see more stuff on Hulu.

Pretty Much the anime had it's own storyline while the OVAs actually had plots based off certain manga chapters,while it may not be as good as the manga,but I thought it was decent,I did like the music score composed by Takayuki Negehi (for the Tv Serie version) who was best know for his music for Cardcaptor sakura and Tokyo Mew Mew as well as the music for F-Zero Falcon no Densetsu.

However,the music for the OVA's was composed by Hikaru Nanase,who did the music in Chrono Crusade,Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, and the Galaxy Angel Franchise.

I'm kinda half and half, shoujo/shonen. Strawberry 100% is in my top 5 shoujo with 3 finished, (Chibi Vampire, Love♥Com, Chobits). The three that are finished were very well done and pretty much faithful with the manga they were based on, with Chibi Vampire straying for the most part, but they had the characterization down. Strawberry 100% was so blandly animated and totally missed out on some really laugh-out loud humor from the manga. I mean, there were times reading the manga where I just busted a gut. If they ever do put the series out on DVD with the OVA's, I would think twice before buying.

You mean the OVAs right? The TV series was fully released already.

The OVAs would be nice (particularly the first one, which properly ends the Genei Ryodan arc), but I think that person is talking about getting the TV series on Hulu.

A part of me wants to wish there was a dub, but then again, the series pales in comparison to the manga(which is probably my favorite romance series EBAR) to the point that I don't care as much as I should. :/ Confused
