Strawberry 100% 01 - Fruity panties by sunset.

Strawberry 100% was one of my first true anime disappointments, back in the spring of 2005 when I'd first started downloading fansubs for myself. But that was because I was expecting actual plot and character development, when I should've been expecting pantyshots, ecchi situations, and harem wish fulfillment. By that second set of criteria, it's not such a bad show. Why am I calling it "Strawberry 100%" instead of "Ichigo 100%," you ask? It's all about consistency. If you're familiar with the show, you know there's plenty of talk about strawberry panties. Now, the dialogue subs don't talk about "ichigo panties" in the original yesy subs or my version. So why leave it untranslated in the title? Plus, Viz is releasing the manga as Strawberry 100%.

So, I'm already violating one of my request conditions by releasing this, since Kira-Fansub has already released a few episodes. However, I didn't know about this until I'd already done the OCR and preliminary corrections on all 13 episodes, since Kira's files are still not on AniDB. Thus, I'm going to go ahead with the project.

  1. Ooh, a rival has appeared! waku waku!

    And I can understand wanting to release something that you put a lot of work into. Sometimes rules are meant to be broken!

    I will definitely be checking this out, along with Kira's release, of course.

  2. Thanks a lot.

    I'll be sure to upload it on usenet, once complete.

  3. I'm wiling to encode it, if I can get my hands on the dvdisos.
    If anyone can point me to the dvdisos, that will be helpfull.

  4. If you plan on doing the OVA's, these raws have AC3 audio.


  5. if you like we could join together and get the project done faster for everyone since already have the Karaoke ready but if prefer working by yourself it up to you
    thanks to you i can't relax now gatta get going with my Ichigo 100% project

  6. If I weren't so fucking lazy and loathed working in a timely fashion I'd suggest we all merge together and form a group; though that's usually when the drama starts...

    Welcome to the scene anyway. It'll be nice seeing releases from someone who actually knows teh moons speak, instead of just bits and pieces like the rest of us.
