Twelve Years Later, “Strawberry 100%” Gets New Manga Sequel

Now that’s a name I haven’t heard in a while!

The latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed that Mizuki Kawashita’s Strawberry 100% (Ichigo 100%) is getting a sequel. The new series will run in Shonen Jump Giga, though no details are known as of press time.

Strawberry 100% originally ran in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump from February 2002 through August 2005. 19 collected volumes were produced, with the most recent hitting stores on December 2, 2005.

The title received a TV series from Madhouse, which aired in the Spring 2005 broadcast season. Osamu Sekita (Ghost Talker’s Daydream, My My Mai) directed the show, which features character designs by Kiyotaka Nakahara (Doki Doki School Hours, Tsugumomo). Tatsuhiko Urahata (Black Bullet, Monster) was in charge of series composition.

Viz Media released both the Strawberry 100% manga and Ichigo 100% anime series in North America. They describe the title as:

Against all odds, Junpei starts dating the most gorgeous girl in school, Tsukasa, believing that she is the mysterious beauty. But could his strawberry muse actually be a bookworm named Aya? Soon a tense love triangle forms between the beauty, the boy and the geek!
